Gobble, Gobble... Senoritas!

Well Senoritas (I doubt any senors' ready my blog) Its almost Thanksgiving and that can only mean one thing, We leave for Mexico Friday morning! To say were excited would be a HUGE understatement, this is just the vacation we need.
Will had a Turkey day celebration over at Michelle's and it will be fun to have Thanksgiving with him tomorrow, I was remembering last year eating my dinner as he was well, attached to me for a lack of better words. I loved that, but this year will be fun to have him interact and eat with us!
Since as long as I can remember my favorite thing to do in the morning is watch the parade, I just love it. Me and my dad used to watch it when I was little and now I drink some baileys and coffee {just like he used to} look through the black Friday ads, and watch the parade. Its just one of those little things that I look forward to all year. I am excited to this with Will as the years go on.

It is easy to be negative, so I wanted to take a minute and note my top 10 thankfuls {in 2011}
As I sit here and think my mind is flooded with thankfuls, I am blessed.
10. our getaway this week to Mexico, we are both stressed to the max and this is great timing
9. a warm and cozy house for a chilly winter
8. 2 jobs, while neither of us love them, they are jobs.
7. technology, having a smart phone makes my life so much easier in so many ways
6. butt warmers in my car
5. a nana that cooks a whole thanksgiving meal from scratch every year.
4. the best babysitter in the world and the very best for will {next to his momma} Michelle.
3. A husband who comes home crabby and complains about work, at least he is home and not at a bar, and talking to me, I love him so much.
2. Of course the best son in the entire world, I don't know what I did to deserve him but I will spend the rest of my life being thankful for him.
1. Our health, after so many scares we've seen and been through lately, this is really just the most important thing.

I love you all very much and hope you have a wonderful, warm, full, turkey day with your friends and family.

My walking talking... yikes TODDLER!

Dah Dah.... These are the little noises that I hear when my baby toddler wakes up in the morning, sometimes he is talking to his dada, but mostly he is looking for his dog. Little William is chatting up a storm these days, his favorite is "dah dah" this means dog. He loves when Boomer comes in his room when he gets up in the morning, or to see him when we get home in the evenings. He's said Boom a few times but mostly its dah/dog. When Will was watching the opening festivites of the world series with dada he kept looking at the clydsdales and saying dah. Also him and I were looking through pottery barns christmas catalog, ahh for the day when I can afford everything in here, on one page there was a dog sitting by the family and tree and he immedatly said dah, dah.
Will now knows how to sign and uses, "all done, please, and more." It definitly makes things easier when we know he wants something and he is getting pretty good at pointing to what it is. Its pretty darn hard to resist that little boy walking around signing please, he'll sign please and bring me his einstein dvd and stand at the pantry and sign please. The other day we were at walmart and I was picking up some of the gerber graduate meals for him, because lets face it sometimes we need something easy so since we were in the aisle with puffs and snacks all around him he sat in the cart and just started "pleasing" like crazy! Its polite and cute, but I'm going to have an obese, einstien watching toddler if this keeps up.
I feel like Will does and learns something new everyday. He loves to eat with a fork and he is actually pretty good at it, now the spoon is a different story but practice makes perfect right!

Another favorite thing to do right now is talk to dada on the phone, yes dada is who he talks to and ONLY dada. He probably has about 10-20 conversations with dada using anything for a phone from his hand, to a measuring cup, to a bath toy, or on rare occasions a real or toy phone. Now these little dada-william convo's are not short and sweet, hello/goodbye, sometimes I hear Will hashing out all of lifes problems, planning vacations, and all sorts of things with dada. Hopefully soon he will realize he can call other people, acchem momma... but for now just his one and only dada!

Will still LOVES bathtime, he now starts to climb in right when we go in his bathroom, which also means he knows how to try and climb out if he wants as well. As soon as he gets in and his tubby is filling up he likes to help with the assistance of his big QT cup he fills it up, takes a big gulp and dumps it out over.and.over again. The rest of the time in the bath is spend playing with toys, reading books, blowing bubbles, and swimming on his belly/splashing. I read about doing food colored ice cubes for a learning/bath activity, still need to get around to that.

Here are a few pictures and updates.....
 My poor lil nephew Bennett broke his leg last week, he will wear this big cast for two weeks and then get a smaller one. He is doing great and is in awesome spirits!
 Will has started to "ride" things, like skateboards and like a horse {pic above}
 Will and Jack had a bath/ slumber party Saturday, they are getting so big and so stinkin cute, love these boys!
 Dada had just gotten home from a bachelor party.... the next morning, my boys were happy to see each other!
And lastly.... last night was NIGHT 3 of no baba before bed, that was the last one we were trying to give up, the lil mr. has done very well with a warm sippy, some einstien, and some extra snuggles before bed!

We leave next week for our little getaway, while I am sad to leave my baby boy I am excited for a little time with my sweet husband!

A Full FUN Weekend!

I had to do a post about the fun weekend ALL of us Wilson's had, by far the best weekend in a long time! My dear friend Meghan decided to go back to school and become a nurse, with two little ones in the house she is one momma who really needed a break, well who doesn't! So we packed it up and met her down in St. Genvieve at Crown Valley Winery. I have never been but I loved it there! It was beautiful, big, open, and of course fabulous wine! After that we headed to the local brewery, and after that dinner at the Tiger Sanchuary. We met some new friends, and I found a new boyfriend, as we girls sometimes do on girls weekend. It was all in good fun even watching the boys out the peep hole of our room, I felt like a 12 year old girl giggling with my friends all night and it was just the medicine the doctor ordered for all of us over worked mommas!  
 Meghan, me, Leslie and Julia, bffs!
 I'll never forget either Megs.... when we became best friends freshman year of college!
 breaking it down on the dance floor
 Were here, CHEERS!
 Before I headed out I had one pit stop to make, the shower for a very special momma to be! Cant wait for baby P to get here!
 When Momma's away the boys will play!!! My dad got Will his very own mini horse this week!!!! How cool is that! So Luke and Will took a lil day trip out to the ranch so Will could meet his mini horsey!

I cant wait for him to grow up and help take care of and learn to ride his little horse, too freaking cute!!!
Then of course the boys went home and Julia and Meghan's husbands and kiddos came over for a daddy night, perfect end to a perfect weekend!

I cant believe it is already November, time is moving at the speed of light these days!

Kids = check!

I'm making a list and checking it twice.... that's right this momma's got shopping on the brain! I was feeling a little behind, last year I got some shopping out of the way before Will made him appearance and then him and I did the rest online and on a few trips to the mall. But this year is a different story, with a walking, talking, busy one year old, a more than full time working momma and dada it leaves little time to worry about much else.
I did manage somehow to get all the kids I shop for done already! That's seven kiddos, including one very special little man who gets some extra goodies from Santa! My real problem comes with the adults! I never have any good gift ideas for them, and they are the hardest to buy for. I don't know if it is because most of the adults on my list buy what they want when they want it, or if I am just creatively gift challenged.
So anyone have any good gift ideas for me, have at it!
What about everyone else, have you started knocking names off your lists?

Happy Halloween!

Hope everyone had a great Halloween! I am sorry to report Mr Will and I were home sick, poor guy wasn't really acting himself Sunday and then by bedtime he just screamed all night I knew right away...ear infection. The good thing was we had already celebrated over at Michelle's house Saturday, they had a big Fall festival with all their friends with games for the kids and boys, pumpkin painting, lots of food and of course lots of fun! Will was originally going to be a lion, we had his "roarrrr" down pat, but when momma took him to get his pictures taken as a lion we realized my little lion is growing by the minute, he didn't quite fit too good in his costume anymore. So in came the turkey! One of my moms friends had given me a turkey costume and I was going to surprise everyone and have him show up to Thanksgiving in it, well good thing we had a backup... my last plan was for him to get in Cardinals gear, carry around a sports car and go as Freese, ha!

All in all we had a good Halloween, we spent in together as a family. :) It felt like Will's first Halloween to me because last year he was such a new baby. I cant wait to see him next year!

Will painted two pumpkins this year for Halloween, so precious!
