William is finally feeling better! We celebrated his birthday last night. He had a great time with many new experiences. As you can tell from the picture above, the flame on his cupcake held his interest quite well.
I love this picture. Abby had been feeding William cake and ice cream and he just reached out and gave her a hug. I'm glad I caught it on film. He is so very sweet! He often loves on us on an impulse. Of course, the girls all treat him very sweetly, too!
Here are a couple of videos of William talking on the phone. We thought they were funny. I love that he can hear people on the phone and not just read lips! He finds the phone extremely interesting!
This video is from the actual day of his birthday when some friends called to wish him "Happy Birthday!" If you listen closely, you can hear poor William's raspy lungs when he "talks." What you don't see on the video is that when the call was over and I told him to say, "Bye-bye," he not only waved, but vocalized as well!
This video is from his birthday party last night when more friends called to wish him "Happy Birthday!" He was not super interested in holding the phone to his ear, as there was so much going on, but when Abby turned it to speaker he was very talkative and jabbered at the phone a lot!
