Photo Update (the past week)

Well I am sure Liam's fans are ready for some pictures of him this week! He has been really busy helping me do laundry, chasing the vacuum and the cats, checking out the animals at PetSmart, and of course climbing all over me. Here are the highlights:

Once Liam sees I am sorting laundry, he giggles and makes a b-line to start "helping" me take the clothes out of the basket.

I let Liam loose when I vacuumed yesterday. He usually is in his crib trying his best to peek over the top to see any glimpse of the vacuum while giggling excitedly. But this time, he followed the vacuum everywhere I navigated it. He was soooo happy to be free to hunt the loud, boisterous, big toy. (Yes, it's very obvious I need to clean out the canister.)

Monday we went to PetSmart to get Bengal food. While there, we exposed Liam to a few different creatures. He seemed pretty impressed!

This I had to share (as embarrassing for Liam that this may be later in life...)

He caught Orion's eye and went to go try and get him down from the bed.

Well, when Liam got to the standing position, I noticed his butt crack is so prominent that it acutally shows through a very thick diaper.

If you can't see it in this photo, maybe this enlarged shot will be more obvious... (Oh my, this made me laugh!!! I noticed this happened yesterday too, in a totally separate outfit and I told myself I would get that on camera later. Mission accomplished!)

And finally, this is our little ham crawling up my front... I leaned back and got a great grin on camera! What a handsome little man!

1st of all, may i say i'm HONORED to be the 1st to comment (assuming no one is hitting the submit button as i type) but also, little bit and liam are SO much alike it just kills me! today (as hard as this may be to believe) little bit "helped" me do laundry several times, tried to chew the vacuum cleaner (and cord), chased the cats a million different times, and crawled all over me (which she does NON-STOP nowadays). i just wish i had pictures to mirror yours. how cute would that be??

That would be stinkin' adorable! What fun that I am not the only one thoroughly enjoying a baby that is a happy ball of energy! Isn't it so fun to watch?

Those are darling pictures. I remember when my kids used to love to "help" with the laundry. It's so fun. He's a cutie!

I have an S and my sister has an S. I need to figure out what to do when I talk about both of them. My S is a 5 year old boy, and hers is a 15 year old girl. I know it's confusing. Hope this helps.

There's something about kids and laundry. My girls love to "help" me with laundry, which actually ends up hindering me, but who am I to tell them not to help, right? ;-)

Great pics of Liam this week. What a ham!

What a hunk! He is seriously the happiest baby. I don't think I have ever seen a kid that smiles like he does. He even smiles through his eyes.

Babys and laundry. If there was ever an exercise in futility, that is one.

Oh my gosh WHAT A CUTIE! I love that last pic. And Gray gets the diaper-crack thing all the time- TOO FUNNY!

Nikkie said...

He is such a little cuitie! My little guy likes getting into my clean laundry basket and dumping it all over my floor.

I'm glad he's not afraid of the vacuum cleaner! It scares the heck out of Boo!

He is so adorable. And growing up so fast! I have a feeling he will be walking WAY before Kai-Li is!!

Awesome! He is so engaged in everything! How fun! I love his little (or not so little) crack too. That is hilarious!

What a busy little helper... Cute pictures of our favorite subject. Love the cute smile on the last pic. Love the big blue eyes and dimples. He is growing up way to fast. Liam looked as if he liked the pet store, loved the expression on his face when he is looking at the fish.
