Merry Christmas everyone!! This years Christmas was great! Liam got so many toys. And we got a lot of things too! We are so grateful for family! This year we spent the night at the Johnson's. Ainsleigh and Lottie decorated cookies!Then we opened up a present on Christmas Eve. Liam, Lottie, Kelsey and Ainsleigh got PJ's. I got a prelude to my new Diaper Bag custom made by Colleen! Patrick got the Harry Potter movie.

Christmas was great we woke up and opened presents about 11:30. Liam had fun with the paper. Grandma Gloria got made him a taggie ball! SOOO CUTE! Aunt Steph got him a toy Moose that he just latched on to. He got two outfits, way cute. He also got some cars, a rocking moose, counting cups (they stack, he loves them), a sippy cup (from us), two books, a tooth brush, bath toys and a beautiful Santa Clause. He got a lot! Me and Patrick got a lot too! We got a camera bag! WAHOO! We also got a 1.5 Terabyte External Hardrive! I mean... holy cow! We also got Snow White and a game called Slam (Which I can't wait to play!). Patrick got a shirt as well. Thank you to everyone!!! It was a great Christmas at the Johnson's!


After hanging with the Johnson's we went over to G.Grandma Doris' house. Liam got a scooter and a book. We got a egg cooker. We used it today, it was perfect! Liam is starting to walk... ish. He will start to push things so he can walk across the floor. Here is a video with his walker at GGrandma Doris' house.

3 Milestones in One Day

This morning I went in to go and feed Liam at his 4:00 am feeding and he was standing in his crib! It sorta scared me I wasn't expecting him to be standing.. This means Patrick needs to move the crib down again. This will be the 2nd time in 2 weeks. He is growing so big!

So today we hung out with Grandma and Grandpa. I got a picture of his tooth!! He started actually crawling!!! And I finally caught him on video standing up! I have such a fantastic baby! Enjoy the videos!!

One Smart Cookie!

Liam fell asleep at Thanksgiving So cute!

So Liam had his 6 month check up today. It was bitter sweet. He had to have his shots today... :( I almost cried! But as Christi was asking me what he does now. She was thoroughly impressed.
  1. Crawling (ish... he pushes himself like a seal but he gets across the room so fast!)
  2. Sitting up on his own
  3. Going from crawling to sitting
  4. He can say "Hi" and "Dadadada"
  5. Pulling himself up on objects.
While we were at the doctors office I told her that Liam occasionally says "Hi" She looked at me like she didn't believe me. Just after I said "Hi" Liam copied me right there. She was very surprised.

He is a super baby! LOL. So he is practically at 9 months developmentally. This too is bitter sweet I don't want him to grow up to fast. This was one of my fears when I was pregnant. I was worried that life would start to fly by. And it has, that makes me sad because I want to enjoy every millisecond! I'm not saying that I'm not I just don't want it to go to fast. But Liam is doing great, he is such and active baby! And he is a blast!
