"If you are still in the process of raising children, be aware that the tiny fingerprints that show up on almost every newly cleaned surface, the toys scattered about the house, the piles and piles of laundry to be tackled will disappear all too soon and that you will—to your surprise—miss them profoundly." -Pres. Thomas S. Monson

Happy 9th, Billiam!
This boy! Next year he hits double digits which kind of blows my mind. I know every mother says they have the best kid, but with Will it is the truth. He is kind to his siblings, is my right hand man, tries to do what is right, keeps whining to a minimum, works hard in school and at home, and truly tries to always do what he feels is right. We are SO LUCKY that we landed him in the baby lottery 9 years ago. Plus, look at that smile! He is the handsomest boy in all the land.
This year he requested another chocolate applesause cake (always trying to be just like his dad), and asked for more animal books. He is a walking animal encyclopedia and it is awesome to always have a reference around! He got some money from grandparents and from working out in the yard that he is going to use to buy a microscope. He enjoys science and learning about the world around us, chooses cookies over every other healthy snack I can muster, picked crepes for his birthday dinner, loves roller coasters and is intrigued with haunted houses, and still loves hanging out with his dad more than anything.
Happy Birthday to the kid with more nicknames than I can count!
