Christmas 2009

Wow! What a difference a year can make! It is hard to believe that Liam was this teeny tiny just one year ago. It feels like just a blink of an eye. Needless to say, this Christmas was MUCH different than last. Liam really enjoyed the wrapping paper and boxes, the toys were ok, too :-). I am looking forward to his excitement next year when he understands it a little bit more. We had a wonderful Christmas spending time with family, relaxing, and eating way too many sweets!

The Kirk Family Christmas

Libengood Family Christmas

Liam was worn out from all of the fun!
I hope you all had a WONDERFUL Christmas!

Hats :-)

Ella joined in on the fun, too!

Why do we as parents think it is so cute to put silly hats on our children?? I don't know, but it hasn't stopped me :-)

Liam Signing

My baby is so smart :-) Not to brag or anything... well ok, maybe just a little. These are a few of his signs that we were able to catch on tape the other night. Don't mind the whining, it was bed time and we were taunting him for our own enjoyment. That's what parents are supposed to do, right?? Man, I love that baby!
(Signs: Juice, milk, eat, dog, banana, and water)

13 Months!

And yes, this is the best picture I could get! He does not sit still very long AT ALL, so you take what you can get.
So proud of himself!!
Pointing to the rain

Wow!! It seems like SO much has happened in just one month! Liam is learning so much, and we are having so much fun watching him become a little person. It is so crazy how fast babies learn things. He is crawling all over the place, pulling up on everything, cruising, and walking with his push toys. He has starting say many more words, and signing A LOT! It is so cute, and really neat for him to be able to communicate with us :-). Some of his signs are. More, all done, milk, dog, juice, water, banana, ball, up, bye-bye, fan and eat. Yes, he signs dog and banana but not Mom or Dad... we are working on that :-) He points to EVERYTHING! Dat, dat, dat... Some of his words are dada, mama, lulu (lucy), fan, juice, water, bye-bye, uh-oh and dog. I have so much fun teaching him new things. I am just so proud of him!! He loves to look at books, and gets SO excited when he sees pictures of babies, cats, and dogs. It is so cute! He gives kisses now too, LOVE IT! He has such a personality, and we are enjoying each and everyday we get to spend together. Being able to stay home with him has called for sacrifices, but it has been the greatest reward I could ever ask for, getting to be here to see him grow and learn each day is truly priceless! I can't wait to update you next month on his progress. Hopefully by then he will have Mama and Dada down pat! Here is a little video is Liam walking :-)

Savannah with my BABY!!

We finally did it, we left the kiddo with Grandma and Grandpa for the weekend and took a much needed getaway! Whitestone had a film in the Savannah Film Festival, so Nick and Brandon were down there for the week. Kim and I packed up and meet them down there on Friday and stayed the weekend with our hubbys :-)! We had a great time. One of the afternoons we rented bicycles and rode around Savannah. That was the most fun I had in a long time! I can't remember the last time I rode a bike. I couldn't believe how affordable it was, too! We will definitely do that again when we are in Savannah! Whitestone's film "That's Magic" was one of 8 films out of over 800 submitted that was chosen for the festival, so we are quite proud of our husbands, and the whole Whitestone team!
Liam did great at Grandma and Grandpa's and I know that they enjoyed getting to have some special time with him. Now that the first overnight trip is under my belt, I better start planning our next getaway! Not really, I couldn't wait to see my little man and those two nights felt like an eternity! It will be a little while before we take off again, but it is nice to have some "Mommy and Daddy" time away from the baby. I am so blessed to have a wonderful husband that I love so much, and after 11 years together I still look forward to everyday that I get to spend with him! That is a blessing!

Liam's First Birthday Party!!

Well, almost three weeks later I am finally able to sit down and post some pictures of Liam's birthday party. It was a wonderful day and I still can't believe I have a one year old!! Liam loved eating his cake and we loved watching him make a royal mess. We are so blessed to have a wonderful group of friends and family to share this special day.
