Will – 16 months

by Chelsea Myers on March 15, 2016

Will loves:

  • Peek-a-boo


  • AnimalsIMG_5534
  • BubblesIMG_5647
  • Reading books and going to the bookstore to play with┬áthe train tableIMG_5697
  • Climbing, climbing, and more climbing
  • Singing “If you’re happy and you know it”, “Wheels on the Bus”, and “Twinkle Twinkle”
  • Feeding himself (especially while sitting on my lap, eating from my plate)
  • Playing trucks and trains
  • Playing with balls
  • Splashing in the swimming pool and at the water table
  • Yogurt, hot dogs, cereal, pizza, noodles, chocolate chips and most fruits

Will is less enthusiastic about:

  • Having his face wiped or his teeth brushed
  • Having his diaper changed and his socks and shoes put on
  • Having toys stolen from him (poor guy, we try to keep this from happening)

He can:

  • Say: “Stuck!”, “Choc[olate]”, “I like choc[olate]”, “Truck”, “Bye, truck”, “Hi!”, “Bye” and “Bee-bo”
  • Sing parts of “Twinkle Twinkle”, “Wheels on the Bus” and “Day of the Diesels”
  • Tell you what several of the animals in Brown Bear Brown Bear are
  • Do a lot of the actions in Head to Toe
  • Negotiate pretty much any kind of playground equipment
  • Remember parts of Are You a Cow and Not the Hippopotamus
  • Swim to the side of a swimming pool or between two people underwater


  • Doesn’t nap a lot
  • Goes to bed around 7:30pm and is up at 6:30/7am
  • Wears size 18 month to 2T clothes
  • Wears size 3 – 4 diapers
  • Is getting molars

At 16 months, Scott was also in a bee-bo phase:

This time last year, Will was finding his voice.

And two years ago, we learned (but weren’t yet telling) that Will would be joining our family.
