the in-laws are out...

after waiting two whole weeks, will finally got to meet his grandpa this last weekend. emily's mom has been here from the beginning, but her dad flew out for the weekend. we all had a pretty good time. it was great having them here. we got some delicious BBQ at this redneck trailer park called The Shed, Jenny made us plenty of delicious meals, and we made two unsuccessful trips to local donuteries.

will got to spend lots of time bonding with his grandparents, including a couple of bath times, which he hates.
we got to put him in his new clothes to go for drives to pick up food, pick out fabric at hobby lobby, trips to target (brand new in d'iberville as of a week ago).

and we made him wear obnoxious halloween clothes so we could pose to take some family photos... you can tell how much he loves it.

emily's parents left on sunday, so it's just the three of us.


but even with them gone, we still dress will up in clothes we think are cool. like yankees gear that doesn't fit yet.

here he is waving bye to his grandparents... or the angels... or the soon to be fallen phillies... we're not really sure yet who he is waving to.

Emily & Peter - your little Will is so cute. What a blessing. It is so great to be able to see pictures of him on your blog. I was reading the part about him not liking baths. This is a little trick that helped my children and grandchildren - get a hand towel wet in the tub and drape it across the top of his body. This keeps his arms from flailing around and keeps him warm too. It worked for me hopefully it will work for you. I wish you all the best.
Love, Joan Nielsen

The pictures of Emily + Will and Jenny + Will are beautiful!
So anxious to see Will in his Halloween costume.
Is he really a Yankees' fan?
Someday he'll grow into the hat.

So cute!!! He is so little. Dad says he really appreciates that double chin profile shot. Dad also says, "Yo to lil' Will!". I can't wait to see him. I love your family picture. Emily, you look so good!
