Birthday Boy

So Will is one year old as of yesterday, and he seems to know it. We had a huge party for him. Grandma and Grandpa Tanner and Uncle Dave came up for cake and ice cream. I can't believe he is already one. I know everybody says that, but time is going by way too fast! It makes me sad that he is already one. The past few days he has been acting all grown up. He is walking all over the place. He just gained all this confidence that he can walk wherever he wants. Reed gave him a haircut so he looks like a little boy (see the picture below...his hair is all tapered in the back! It may be hard to see because of his lack of hair). Grandma Edge thinks he looks like Bart. Or at least he did today because of his overalls. I think it is becuase his hair sticks up on the top.

The last couple of weeks have been good-just too busy. Reed and I are both trying to keep up with both work and school, and at least I am not doing a great job at either. I am getting spring fever really bad. The weather has been great, so it is hard to go inside and do homework or anything else. It has turned cold today, so maybe that will help.

We have 8 weeks left for the half marathon. I am up to running 8 miles. It feels good to go on those long runs. I don't go fast, by any means, but it is nice. It takes me a while (like 2 miles) to feel like I am not totally out of shape and to get into a rhythm (yes, I had to look up how to spell that!).
This blog has been all over the place...Here are some pictures to end it!

Grandma the Magician

Give Grandma a cardboard box, some duct tape and scissors, and she becomes a magician. She is always making new toys that Will loves to play with. No wonder Will likes her so much. I don't know how she does it, but she is always coming up with new stuff to do and to play. I remember once Letty telling me this earlier. Grandma was coming up with games to play with Oscar and he was always entertained and loves playing with Grandma in the play room...even if it is tea parties and dressing up paper dolls.
This is one of Grandma's old magic boxes. She has made a new one, but we haven't taken any pictures yet...
