9 months

At nine months Liam can crawl, pull up to his knees, play pat-a-cake, wave bye, and play peek-a-boo like a pro. He says Mom and Dad and sometimes it seems like he is actually using the words properly. (Although this is probably just wishful thinking on our part!) He's eating all sorts of different foods (baby and table) and he's growing like a weed! Next week we have his 9 month appointment, so we'll see just how big he is then!

The more Liam's hair grows, the curlier it gets!

Fall Pictures

I figured it was about time I got Liam into the backyard to take some pictures with the fall leaves!

He's Crawling!

After a few weeks of "He'll get it any day now..." Liam is finally crawling! He still reverts back to his army crawl about 50% of the time, but I'm sure over the next few days he'll use it less and less!

Could this little boy be any cuter??

Funny Face

Oh, the fun to be had with a see-through safety gate...

How fast they grow...

A year ago today we got our first look at Liam's face. Well, we didn't know it was Liam at the time, but it was our baby!

And this little piggy wore a bowl on his head...

A few weeks ago Liam realised that he could make a neat sound if he breathed in and out really quickly through his nose. It quickly morphed into scruching up his face while he breathed in and out. Now, he breathes in and out so hard that he makes little pig grunts! It is the funniest thing I've ever seen and heard - a little pig grunting while making the oddest face - I can't help laughing out loud each and every time he does it!

What a smart boy we have! After 24 hours of playing with a bowl (and us wearing it on our heads to make him laugh) Liam started putting the bowl on his head!

Finally, in other news, we think Liam may be cutting his third tooth because he has been so crabby. I can't feel or see it, but I'm hoping there is a reason for his bad moods! And, I saved the best for last, Liam started giving kisses! Great big open mouthed slobbery kisses! It's so cute, he just grabs my head to pull me down and plants a big one on my face! I have to say, that sure does make a mommy feel pretty special. He's tried to kiss his daddy, but he never follows through. As soon as he feels those whiskers, Liam backs right off!

What's up?

We haven't really been up to much around here. Liam's second tooth finally broke through completely yesterday. It took a few days (and a few rough nights) but he officially has a two-tooth smile now. Liam's also been working on waving bye-bye, but it's kind of hit and miss. Some days he waves like crazy, other days he looks at us waving like we're crazy. He and I have been going swimming again now that the pool is open so it's nice for us to have something different to do.

On Friday Hayden came to play while his mommy and daddy went to an inservice. Can you tell these boys like Baby Einstein videos?
