This past week William fell head over heels in love with gorillas. It started with an Eric Carle book featuring a gorilla who thumps his chest. All last week he pounded his chest–first thing in the morning, throughout the day, and last night when I laid him down to sleep, he lay there thumping his chest. We're blown away by this.

A few days ago,  I drew a gorilla on the chalkboard for him while he napped. He was very excited to find Mr. Gorilla in our kitchen, but was afraid to get close to him for most of the day. Instead he stood in the corner of the kitchen looking at his new friend and pounding his chest. 

These are those memories that are so sweet I never want to forget–and I especially want to capture. Enjoy <3
