Liam's Dedication

Sunday was Liam's dedication. I am SO blessed by a family that loves and serves God! Liam is surrounded by so many people that not only love him, but love GOD! I could not ask for a better support system as we continue our adventure in parenthood.

Look what I found...

That's right... Liam, standing in his crib! I almost had a heart attack when I opened the door to his room to get him from his nap. There he was, just staring right at me.

He thought my expression was pretty funny.
And, in other news...
The gate went up...
As you can tell, he was not happy about this situation
He called in back-up to try to remedy the situation, but... to no avail

Pumpkins

I would love to say that our first family trip to the pumpkin patch was full of sweetly posed pictures ...
Picking out the perfect pumpkins...
And lots of smiles and laughter...
However...
It was more like this...
And this...
Poor little guy...
We did get a few good pictures out of about 100 or so...
And Liam even started eating the pumpkin before we could even get home and cook it into something super yummy
In the end, it is all about the memories... and our first trip to the pumpkin patch was certainly memorable!

11 Months


We are only one month away!! I Can't believe it!! Time sure has flown by. Our little man is SOOOO much fun, and even though watching him grow is bitter sweet, each new stage he reaches is better than the last. He is moving constantly. He loves chasing Lucy around, and he is still obsessed with her food bowls. And yes, this month he actually tried eating dog food... not my most proud parenting moment. But he is just so darn quick. You think you have gotten all of the pieces out of his little death grip, and yet you turn around and there he is chewing on something... yep, that would be dog food. Nice. Well, it didn't kill him, and I guess he likes the taste because he is constantly trying to go back for more. Another fun thing he learned this month is how to climb the stairs. He doesn't really notice them too often because our stairs are off to the side of the living room, but when they do catch his eye it starts about a half-hour obsession with trying to get up them. I know a baby gate will be going up SOON. He is holding fast with his eight teeth. I don't see any more trying to break through for now. He is eating everything, and gone are the days of trying to eat ANYTHING without sharing. He is still sleeping like a champ. 12-13 hrs. a night. Never up before 8am! I know... he is spoiling me. He is really starting to pay attention to books instead of just trying to tear the pages out. He actually listens to the stories and helps turn the pages. His FAVORITE thing is singing songs. He LOVES songs with hand motions. His absolute favorite right now is the itsy bitsy spider. He actually does some of the hand motions, it is SO stinkin' cute! He is pulling up now, but I have a feeling walking is still several months away. He is still "belly crawling" so I think we are safe for a couple more months at least. Well, wish me luck as I try to prepare (mentally) for the big ONE. Nick and I haven't come to an agreement on the party thing yet, so I don't know exactly what that will look like. Just family, family and friends??? Not too sure yet. We shall see.
