It's not perfect, but at least he's trying!

For a while now Liam has been trying to put clothes on - his, mine, Daddy's, whatever. Today, he had success! He was so excited, I just couldn't tell him that he had his head through the arm hole ...

It's so tough...

It's so hard being a baby. Seriously you guys, you have no idea.

Bathtime baby!

How to eat with a spoon...

1. Put the spoon in the bowl.

2. Put the food in your mouth.

3. Be silly with the spoon.

4. Forget the spoon, just use your fingers.

5. Forget the spoon and the fingers - just lick the bowl!

Peek a boo, I see you!

Long time no see! Or should it be "long time no write"? Either way, it has been way too long. I am really going to make more of an effort to keep this blog updated - I'm planning on posting at least once a week, but we'll see how it goes.

Liam had his 12 month doctor's appointment on February 13. Liam is doing and growing well according to the doc. This time, Liam weighed in at 25lbs 7oz and was 31 inches long. Liam also got his 12 month needles, and as always, took them like a champ!

We are all adjusting well to me being back to work. The first two weeks, Liam would cry when I dropped him off at the sitter's and would cry when I picked him up. Now, he is running off to play before I can even say goodbye! He loves playing with the other kids, and I think he is bored on the weekends without them.

Liam is definately a real toddler now. Very, very rarely do we see him crawling. In the past week he's figured out how to get to standing without holding on to something, so there is no stopping him now! He is even starting to run, and loves it when we chase him.

We are thinking that Liam is going to be a real chatterbox as he gets older. (Just like his mommy! :) ) He yammers away constantly - he obviously has a lot to say, I just wish we could understand him! He does have quite a few real words though - mom, dad, kitties, bath, a "mmm" sound for his milk, shakes his head (and hand) "no", and lately he's been saying a lot of "ah-bee"s. We aren't quite sure if he is trying to say "baby" (which we call him a lot, and which the kids at the sitter's call him) or if he is trying to sing the ABC's (his favourite song). He's been saying it in both situations, so maybe it means both! Who knows!

His other new trick is answering yes and no questions. Somehow he can tell the difference between a yes and no question and any other type of question (must be our voice inflection) and he answers "no" everytime by shaking his head! We've been having a lot of fun with that one!

I'll leave you with another pic of our cute little guy from when we all went out to shovel this morning:
