Welcome to the Willard Family blog! Although our life is no more exciting than any other American family, we tend to go about life in creative ways! Upon reviewing this years calendar it became clear that there are a few exciting changes we'll go through as a family. So now seemed as good a time as any to create a platform for sharing these
The Willard family consists of:
Matt - Husband/Dad. As a newly commissioned officer in the USN after serving 10 years as an enlisted sailor, he's learning a new role as well as being trained in a new field. Outside of work he's also adjusting to life not only as a Dad to one kid, but another that is soon to join us! His current hobbies include working on his "family car", driving and modifying his RC rock climber truck, and as always...movies.
Shelley - Wife/Mom. With the move to Florida a few months ago, work as a photographer has been put on hold to focus on raising kids and taking on more around the house. Also, she is currently growing a human being from scratch. 5 more months to go! Her favorite pastimes include reading, working on creative projects, graphic design
work, and game nights with friends.
Gavin - Son/Soon to be big brother. Life as a toddler is hard. He is often misunderstood which then the only reasonable reaction is a Full Toddler Tantrum! He's told life will change this summer with the arrival of a "sister" but has no idea what that really means, or why Mom seems to be getting so fat! His current favorite things to do are playing outside, trains, trucks, cars, airplanes/helicopters, bubbles, and helping Mom and Dad. His new favorite word is "No".
Laney - Growing baby. While she has not yet begun life outside the womb, she is busy growing eyelashes to bat at her Daddy, perfecting her kick, and as seen at this month's ultrasound...playing with her feet! She enjoys when Mom eats Popsicles, listens to music, and reads books to Gavin. The doctors estimate her arrival to be May 26th, 2010. But she'll decide if that day works for her as it gets closer!
