Along with animals, Will is also obsessed with airplanes. Any time he is outside he looks up and says "Airplane!", except that it comes out more like "Meh-pain!". If he happens to see an actual plane, well, that is just too much excitement. Often, Zach will do "airplane" with Will's food to get him to eat it. I'm sure you're all familiar with this tactic and how it goes. So, the other night, Will wanted me to eat a bite of his chicken, but I kept refusing. Finally he starts moving his fork around toward me and saying "Wooo. Wooo. Woo." Turns out, he was doing "airplane" to me to try to get me to eat the food! He is a little sponge....I am constantly amazed at what he learns and understands.
Update: Will has also started doing "airplane" to himself with his own food. It's too funny. But, whatever gets him to eat is fine with me. (Although, we all know he's not hurting in the food department.)
