Will is 3.47 years old today. He now verbalizes lists of people and objects and using his fingers to tick them off. His facial expression of concentration is priceless during this activity.

The world is in sync some times. I heard this program on NPR:
about this website:

My true confession of motherhood: My 3.5 year old son is still in a crib because I don't want to deal with him leaving his room once he's down for the night or a nap.

And? He'll probably be in that crib for a while. :laugh5:...
