The Secret to Naptime Success

After much difficulty in getting Liam to take naps in his crib, I believe we have stumbled upon the solution: a lovey. Not only does clutching it keep him from grabbing and pulling his pacifier out, but he seems to love having it touch his face. Since we started giving the lovey to him it has not taken more than 5 minutes for him to fall asleep. Now all we need to do is buy at least a dozen more so that we have enough to last until he's eighteen.

3 Months Old Today!

Wow! Our little man is growing up so quickly!

Out Like a Light

On Saturday we took a trip to visit Grandma and Grandpa J. Liam loved visiting with his grandparents - not so much sleeping in a strange place. Between 11 am and 7 pm the little man only slept a grand total of an hour. I had great intentions of taking pictures, but that gets forgotten rather quickly when you have a howling baby on your hands. We left to go home and it was barely 3 blocks before Liam was sound asleep. Here's what we found after the two hour drive home:

Definately not the mailman's son...


Yesterday we spent some time with our friends Todd and Twylla and their son Hayden (9 mos). We hope that Liam and Hayden will be great buddies as they get older. Hayden may be bigger now, but Liam is catching up quickly! Hayden's mom, Twylla, was telling him that if he ever wanted to beat Liam up he'd better do it now!

*I should clarify that I am the one holding Hayden, and my friend Twylla is holding Liam. Thanks to those who thought otherwise!*

Liam Longstockings


Daddy, why do you insist on doing this to me? And Mommy, why do you take pictures of it?

Two Month Update

I can't believe Liam is two months old already! Wow!

We went to the clinic on Wednesday, March 30 for his two month check-up. The doctor says he is in perfect health! Our little man weighed in at 15lbs 7oz, and is 24 inches long (I don't think they measured him correctly when he was born - we always got 22 inches). He was a champ with his needles - he was sleeping by the time we got back to the van!

Liam is a very happy baby and will easily spend half an hour playing with his "kicker" or looking at his mobile in his crib. He is starting to get into a routine with his feeding and naps and he has slept through the night 3 times (although not in a row). He always has smiles and coos for Mommy, Daddy, or anyone else who may be around. Way to go Liam!

Thoughts on Picture Taking...

'Nuff said.
