A Glimpse of Liam

Liam just had his 2 month check up and here are his stats:

Weight: 13 lbs 6 ounces (78th percentile)
Length: 25 inches (96th percentile)
He's wearing 6 and 6-9 month clothes!
I think the boys will be sharing clothes by next winter!
We have a big boy to love! He feels heavy, but he's not chunky!
He's just solid! It runs in the family as his big brother is the same way
(and their daddy)
He has been smiling for a few weeks and now tries to laugh!
Here's that big smile that lights up our day!

These past 2 months have flown by, yet we feel like we've have Liam in our family for longer than the 9 weeks he's been with us! I keep thinking he is older than he really is. Maybe because he's so much bigger than David was at this age or maybe because we've been through the newborn stage already. I don't know! But we do know that he is such a sweetheart and so much fun!

He's eating every 3 hours or so and has slept through the night a few times. After I feed him around 7:30 or 8 we put him to bed and he sleeps until 5-6, eats and goes back to sleep until 8-9. Except for last night...he was up at midnight, 4 then 8! He naps about 3 times each day and we're working on putting him down awake so he can learn to put himself to sleep. He'll only be little for a short time, so we don't have any problems letting him sleep on us sometimes!

Liam loves his big brother! He smiles at David all the time and just this morning he laughed at him when he ran by! David loves giving his brother kisses and is so patient when Liam is crying.

Here's a video of our little man ROLLING OVER at 7 weeks! Crazy!

I have a few more blog posts ready to go, so be on the look out for our boys!!

A Glimpse of David

Our amazing first born will be 2 in May. We can't believe it. He is such an incredible blessing and can brighten the darkest of days with his giggle.

Just before this video was taken, I was trying to get Liam to smile. David thought it was hysterical for me to be saying 'boo' to Liam. So I had to get it on video.

Our little wonder... where to begin...

*He loves to run. Anywhere and everywhere he is running! His new favorite is to RUN down ramps. It makes us nervous, but what can you do?!?

*Things need to be in there place: He puts his toys away where they belong and gets frustrated when he can't (like putting books back on the book shelf-so we now have a basket to put books in that he is done with). He goes through the kitchen and closes the drawers and cupboards that I didn't close all the way.

*He's very 'spacial': He wants to see what will fit through holes and openings of different sizes and shapes.

*The bath is still one of his favorite places to play!

*His daddy is his best friend. I love watching them play and wrestle together.

*Like I said, his smile will light up the darkest day.

Our Boys!

This is from the day we brought Liam home. The videos from Liam's first days and Christmas were just downloaded this week. I had accidently deleted these videos when I thought I was deleting pictures that I had just downloaded.

I was absolutely devastated.

But my awesome husband called Sony to see if there was anything we could do. We sent the camera in and they were able to retrieve all of our videos!!

We had so many in the batch of our little man's first couple weeks, the boys meeting for the first time, and Christmas.


So here we go...this is a video of the boys meeting. Liam was born in the middle to flu season, so David wasn't able to come to the hospital to meet him. We got home just as David was waking up from his nap:

(if you get the blog posts through email, you will need to go to the blog website to watch the video)

My last post revealed that we would have a party for my dad in March when we went down to visit. That won't be happening!

Just before we left, David helped Dandad put a desk together!

We had a WONDERFUL long weekend just relaxing and hanging out with my family. We decided not to try to visit with people this trip because our trip was short and we wanted to spend extra time with our family. We will be down in March again and will meet up with friends!
