Reaching for Mommy

As I've said before: Liam is so precious. But this new development really makes my heart skip a beat. When I walk in the room, or if he is sitting on the ground playing, he has now started reaching for me, and making the sweetest sounds. It literally makes my heart melt. I can't describe what it's like looking at him when he is smiling, arms out stretched, and wrists twirling. It's an amazing feeling. I love being his mommy.

The Sweetest Thing...

Happy Halloweenie!

I know the header may be confusing since Halloween was 6 months ago. However, I never posted pictures of Liam in his Halloween costume, and last night Matt and I were playing with him and thought it would be funny to put him in his costume again.The first time we put him in it, he was so tiny, and slept the entire night while we went trick or treating. Notice the difference in pictures!! They grow so fast!! Hard to imagine that this Halloween he will be walking, and trying to go door to door. Oh, how we love you so Liam.

Family Love

We went over to my Aunt Judi and Uncle Gary's house for Easter dinner. It was so delicious! My cousins hadn't seen Liam in a couple of months and were so excited to see him. Liam, I can't tell you how much you are loved. (Cousin Jenny, May May and Bella)

Happy Birthday Uncle Gary!

I love you May May!

Swim Swim Swim

Happy Easter everyone! We had a beautiful day. We went to Redding to visit Matt's parents. Liam slept great at their house, and was a happy boy all day long. As you can see, we got in the hot tub, and I swear Liam could of stayed in it forever. He was in Heaven! We also put him under water for the first time today, and he loved that too! Such a great boy! Matt and I are so looking forward to this summer with our sweet baby.

It's a wonderful Easter. You future wife Audrey is in the process of being born today. I've been talking with her mommy all day today, and she is almost here!! YEAH!!

I'm going to get you!!

Loving Liam

We've been having so much fun with Liam. He loves twirling his wrists, jumping in his jumper, and playing with mommy and daddy. Here are some pictures of our happy boy! Obviously these were taking right after eating. It's when he is most happy!!!

Liam loves playing with daddy. They have the same smile. Don't you think?

My Boys!!

Early Easter

We had an Early Easter with Matt's sister since she and our nieces will be out of town. We had a BBQ and an Egg Hunt. Liam was so happy! He found his first Easter egg, and boy did it taste good on those teething gums! We don't care about candy yet, but the plastic was great!

OOOHHH! What's this?


Help me daddy, I want that!

What do I do with that?
Yes I'm bigger than my 1 and 4 year old cousins!!

Hold me tight Morgie! Don't let me fall. I know I'm heavy!

I love the water!!...and my daddy

This was your first time in a pool! You LOVED it! You were so happy playing and splashing around. Of course mommy had to ruin your time, and you were not happy about it. Since I'm a first time mom, and don't know what I'm doing, I sprayed the sunscreen all over you. Even your hands. Which was a big mistake, because (as I'm VERY aware) you put everything in your mouth, and touch your face constantly. You immediately rubbed your eyes, the sunscreen burned so bad. Even though the label says "no tears". No tears my $#$!! You seemed to be allergic to the sunscreen, because not only did your eyes swell up, your whole face seemed to become irritated. So we had to go home early and take a bath to get the sunscreen off. But before this debacle, you had a fantastic time swimming with daddy. You bring us so much joy son, we love you.
P.S. You had a swimsuit that we saved just for this occasion. However, when we went to put it on you, it would not go over your thighs. And yes, it was size 18 months. So, in this picture you are in a cotton onesie. We are so proud to have a big healthy boy!

My 1st Girlfriend...I think

So, mommy will always be your first girlfriend. But Cadience came over to play this past weekend, and I don't think you were ready for her!! SHE WANTED YOU!!
Can you tell I'm tired, and in need of a tan? It's bad when your 6 month old (who has never seen the sun) is darker than you!

Come here handsome! You're mine!

 So this is actually such a sweet playdate. Cadience came over with her mommy. They rode their bike to our house. Cadience had just woke up and was so excited to play. She was rolling everywhere, talking, and trying so hard to touch you. You did not find this amusing, and cried everytime she came close.

 Liam, you were so sweet with Cadience. Even though she wanted to grab you and kiss you, you never grabbed back. You are so gentle and sweet. I'm so proud of my little boy.

Overall you had a great time. It's good for you to socialize, even though you prefer to be in mommy's arms. I'm okay if you never have a girlfriend, and want to stay with me. I don't know if I will feel the same in thirty years, but for now you can stay with mommy as long as you like. I love you.
