Liam the Huge!

So Liam is getting so big now! This past Sunday I put him in a cute outfit that I had gotten him from Babies R Us. It is a 12 month outfit - and the onesie was so tight! I felt bad putting it on him, but I wanted to make sure he wore the outfit at least once!!

Here he is laughing at my mother, who keeps saying "Ma ma!" to him. He thought it was absolutely hilarious.

Liam has his dad's sense of humor. I was opening my car registration the other night and it had those tabs that you have to tear off, like on a paycheck, and Liam starts looking over at me and laughing hysterically! I'm like, okay. Apparently this is the funniest thing in the world to him. And last night, I was holding a piece of paper that I got in the mail, while I was holding Liam, and he started to grab for the paper, but could only really bat at it, so he started laughing at that! Weird kid. :)

As you can see, Liam is not a fan of socks and drools like a madman! But his little train outfit was so cute!

Okay - I was just in the middle of sending out an email for work and forgot about it, though I had already sent it, and saw it sitting on my computer, waiting to be sent. MOMMY BRAIN IN FULL EFFECT!

Not sure if I spelled that right.

Remember when I used to post blogs on a somewhat regular basis?? Yeah... Me neither.

Sorry! Liam is 7 months and 2 days old! I should have posted something on Monday, but I'm too lazy. I even have wireless in my house, but I can't be bothered to attempt to power up my laptop some days. And then finding the cord to transfer photos from my digital camera? It's like asking me to climb Mt. Everest! It is ALL THE WAY IN THE BACK ROOM! Are you kidding? I'm watching my stories.

Anyway - what's new?

Liam now has TWO teeth! He likes to chomp on his cheerios and kind of talk while he's eating. It's cute though. He'll go "a la la la ma da la a la" while chomping on his cheerio. And then he'll usually sigh really loudly. It's so funny!

Liam is crawling. Backwards. Kind of. It's cute! We'll put him on his tummy and he'll push himself back. He'll even tuck his legs under him, so it looks like his going to push himself forward, but no... He pushes himself backwards.

Liam is sitting up like a champ! He hasn't fallen over in a while. It helps that we keep the Boppy behind him most of the time, but still. He's doing really well.

Liam love to laugh! I was buzzing the other morning at him and he was absolutely cracking up. I think he's going to have his fathers sense of humor!

I had to take him for his flu shot booster on Tuesday and he was 20.6 lbs with his clothes on.

Here are some pictures for you to enjoy!

Grandma got me a new hat! It was $1.97 at babygap. I love deals!

Liam loves his exersaucer! He'll sit for a long time just rolling the blue dial above and looking off into the distance. It's like he's bored. It's adorable.

Below are some cute pictures of Bill reading to Liam. They were reading "Dinosaur's Binkit." Liam LOVED this book. It looks like he's screaming, but he's not. He's just so excited!

Blogless and beautiful!

Sorry! I've been a crazy woman lately! I was in Chicago on Monday and Tuesday for a meeting with work - didn't actually get into Downtown Chicago, but oh well. Maybe next time (opening day for the CUBS???). When I was in the airport at O'Hare, I connected up to my Yahoo account, since there's been more discussion with the whole 10 year class reunion for North Kingstown - holy crap! There was like a billion emails flying back and forth and if you know me at all - I cannot stand inefficiency!! Or carnies... But that's a different story! So I volunteered myself (sucker!) to help out and I really struggle not to take over the whole thing - "Does not work well with others." But at least I've had a chance to kind of meet up with people from high school that I actually want to get in touch with and it's kind of like a scavenger hunt (I LOVE me some scavenger hunts!) trying to find other classmates.

But I'm looking forward to the long weekend - spending a whole lot of time with my hubby and my baby. Liam's getting so big! He's going to be 7 months old on Monday! Craziness! Here's a cute picture of the baby and Bill from this morning:

Oh well - hopefully I'll be able to post some more things this weekend - sorry I've been so lax!

Just a quick note

Liam's eating Cheerios! I can't believe it. He has a tooth and he's eating Cheerios. Just 6 1/2 months ago, he was still in my stomach! It's amazing how big babies get in such a short span of time. I'm so proud of him! We got a jumper from Donna for him to play in, but he still doesn't quite understand... He just kind of stands there really rigid and look at you. Oh well... Another thing for him to learn!

Here are some pictures from New Years for you to enjoy!

Mommy likes playing with Picasa!

Liam... What are you looking at??

Happy New Year!

Hello! And welcome to 2006. It's very similar to 2005. Just with a different number on the end.

Many things have happened over the past couple of weeks. Here's a quick rundown:

  • Liam got his first tooth! I nearly died when we felt it. My little boy is becoming a man!
  • We celebrated Liam's first Christmas. He was such a good boy too! You can visit my husband's blog Trusty Plinko Stick for a rundown on the car ride experience.
  • Bill and I decided to sleep through New Years Eve. Why bother staying up? We would just be totally exhausted and dealing with a 6 month old teething infant would not be so fun.
  • I finished Season 4 of "24" - Oh my God... It's just so good!
  • We got Liam a jumper, so that he can enjoy his jumping safely! Thanks, Donna!
  • Liam met his Mainer cousins and got himself an international girlfriend. Her name is Sherry and she's from Taiwan. Theirs is a forbidden love. :-)
  • We started Liam on some apple juice (not so much) and cheerios (really not so much).
  • We got to see our friends! Dear God! We got to see our friends! It was very fun. We miss having people around. And it's weird that we have to go to Jay, ME to see a bunch of people! It's like the middle of nowhere! Just check it out on a map!

Since I'm a lady of few words (and Liam wants to eat), I've decided to end this blog with a bunch of cute photos from the Christmas events.

I'm a present!

Yummy, old school toy!

I love George!

Yummy, wrapping paper!

I'm completely adorable. What can I say?

I don't believe you mommy... Who's this Santa guy?
