All in a Day

Okay, today Liam got quite the preview for tomorrow's photo shoot. His uncle Drew is here from Minneapolis and was instructed by Grandma to take lots of photos of Liam. So first thing this morning Drew hears Liam in his crib and he goes upstairs and takes a few (and I followed him cuz my boy was as cute as ever in his crib, NOT asleep like he should have been)...
Then this afternoon all the boys (including our manly Liam) went to Cabela's and I had a sneaky feeling they would buy some baby camo... I was right! They bought a camo onesie, SO after we went out to dinner (Chinese Garden) we dressed him in the camo and put him in the grass thinking he would just disappear... ha ha. He is not too sure about the grass yet, so we got a lot of shots of him looking stunned. In this one, I think he looks like a gorilla... a very WHITE gorilla with camo on, but a gorilla nontheless... Anyway, we took a TON of pictures.
It's been a while since I took photos of Liam right out of the bath. He loves being naked so it's really our favorite time of the day because he gets the biggest kick out of being free! He sees me rub the lotion in my hands and he knows he is about to get it slathered all over him... it cracks me up to see his eyes light up as I rub my hands together. Giving my baby a bath is one of the most precious things I do each day. The way he lights up when I rinse out the tub and put his bath mat down, I will get his diaper off and then he'll climb up my front in excitement! I lay him in the warm water and he looks at me and grins big, starts kicking in the water and gnaws on his fist (as this is his nervous/excited tick we have found). I am glad he is young enough to enjoy baths and then not throw a fit when it's time to get out. An activity that always has a happy beginning, middle and end.

Adorable. Isn't it great how much babies love the bath?

Annabelle giggles when she sees me getting ready for her bath time. I love it as much as she does!
