But all was not lost. An intensive round of physical therapy was prescribed, and I soon discovered that William could match wits with any yogi after our sessions that included a virtual gauntlet of neck stretches, headstands and balance ball work. A month went by and his head stopped lolling. At 3 months he started grabbing his pudgy toes and Daddy's big nose with his once limp leftie. Now, at 4 months, he can sit up, roll over, and is an expert drool monger. He's the only baby I know who wants to overachieve at being, well, a baby. I wonder where he got that from …
Maria Pilar Clark and her strapping young son William spend their days focusing mainly on the wonders of drool and devising ways to make Daddy change dirty diapers. All call Clarendon Hills home.
