We got to hang out with Mikail's family this last month, so William got his first lesson on the drums. I think as he gets older we'll see if we can encourage him to play other (quieter) instruments. The slideshow below has some pictures of him with Jim during their experimental jam session.
Will's last visit to the doctor for his 4-month checkup went great. He now weighs 16.25 lbs and is 26" long. He doesn't mind his checkups, but after the nurse gave him his next set of immunizations (and a few more pokes in each leg) he was sure to let us know he was ready to be out of there.
William had several "firsts" this month in addition to his first music lesson. He rolled over for the first time and tried solid foods for the first time too. He took well to the new foods, and only had trouble when lunch came too close to nap time.
At the end of the slideshow there is a short video clip of William falling asleep to the music his bouncy chair plays. The first time we tried playing it for him he was out cold. The audio in the clip makes it sound a little creepy, but apparently it did the job. Click on the last image and you can see the clip in Mikail's web album.

Mikail and I are doing well. Working as a personal trainer while I get ready for dental school to start in a few weeks has made it possible for me to spend a few hours at home each day with Mikail and our son. I was recently called as a ward clerk and Mikail is still working with the young women (though this week she gets a break while they all get soaked at girl's camp). We'll be sure to post any exciting developments over the coming weeks.
All our love!
