Only four months until our baby is one year old - yikes!
Liam is a very busy boy; rolling around and army crawling everywhere. If we take our eyes off of him for even a second he is across the room searching for electrical cords or trying to get in the glass of the entertainment centre. He is constantly up on his hands and knees rocking so we are sure he will be crawling very, very soon. If he gets into this much trouble now, what's he going to be like when he's even more mobile?? (LOL) He absolutely loves pat-a-cake and clapping - he claps as he plays, he claps when he eats, he claps when he sees one of us enter the room, he claps when he is going outside...you get the picture. Another of Liam's favourite things is working out in the yard with his daddy. The two of them will stay outside for hours!
As always, Liam continues to be a great eater. He eats 3 jars of baby food plus cereal, yogourt, and finger foods (Cheerios, Goldfish, pieces of cheese and fruit) each day. He absolutely loves eating whatever we are having and will make the most awful racket until we give some to him.
Unfortunately, sleeping continues to be a bit of a problem. He is now very consistent with taking two good naps a day (1 1/2 to 2 hours each), but still doesn't sleep too well at night. He often still wakes up multiple times a night, and always wakes up at least once. We are working on some sleep training with him, but have yet to see any real improvement. Wait, there is one thing - he'll go down for naps and at bedtime by himself (no holding or rocking by Mommy) so I guess that is something!
We've seen so many changes this month - sitting, army crawling, clapping - I wonder what next month will bring!

Liam's cousin Max turned one on Saturday. Yay Max! We went to Max's Baba and Gigi's for a barbeque and of course we had to put hats on the boys. Here are Max and his mom Pam (Derek's cousin) with Derek and Liam.
I don't know, do you think Max had fun??
Isn't he just the cutest bear cub you ever did see?? Liam's all ready for Hallowe'en, and Mommy is very proud because she made the costume herself!
