9 month photos & update

Liam is so great! We survived our first family vacation to the lake (including an all day car ride to get there.) He had a blast with his cousins. This month Liam learned how to push his walker toy around, how to open cabinets, open and close doors (that aren't shut all the way) and how to flush the toilet. He is curious and gets into everything. He also puts everything in his mouth, especially shoes. 

Another big development, Liam has 2 teeth! 
I didn't even realize that his first one was coming in until I felt something sharp. 

He is just as silly as ever. He isn't afraid of strangers, but prefers his Momma to anyone else.

Liam's New Trick (video)

Liam likes to bang on the dryer lid while I fold clothes. On Sunday, I showed him the little button that turns the light on and off, but he was too short to reach it on his own. The next day he figured out how to stand on his tip toes to reach it. It blew my mind that he remembered that it was there and learned how to get to it.

Who needs baby toys?

Photography Friday: 8 month photos & update

I know, I am really late with Liam's 8 month photos. I took them on time, I was just really busy and didn't get around to processing & posting them.

Liam has changed so much in the last month. He learned how to crawl, pull himself up to standing and "cruise" around on the furniture. He went through a really clingy phase concurrent with learning how to crawl and it drove me absolutely crazy. He is over it now, though I am still his favorite person.

He says "da da" now, though "ba ba," "ma ma," and "da da" all mean Momma according to Dan. He has tried a lot of different fruits and vegetables. He isn't a big fan of cereals anymore, though he will eat  oatmeal if I mix it with fruit.

My favorite thing to do with Liam is a combination of hide-and-seek and peek-a-boo. There are ottomans in our living room. I'll hide behind them and pop out. He will try to crawl around them to get to me, but I am quicker and sneak up behind him. He squeals and laughs and I get a kick out of it, too.

He is very social. He especially likes his Aunt Morgan. Some of his cousins are in town and he is so happy to play with them. He is also starting to wave, especially to himself in the mirror.

Liam made a huge mess with peas. 

I love this crazy face.

Happy 4th of July

This is the onesie that I made for Liam in this post.

And one silly photo, since this is who Liam really is.

Last week was so busy. I will share Liam's 8 month photos soon!
