Milestones...

Liam took his first steps this past week, one or two steps here and there. Then yesterday he took FOUR steps to me TWICE! Once when we were at a friend's house and the second time here at home. It was so great! I think he's on his way to making more records this week! It's so fun to see him raise both his arms in the air and take off! It's like he has to put his hands above his head to balance or something! He gets so excited to walk back and forth between me and Ian.

Liam also got his second tooth Monday or Tuesday of last week! His second tooth is on top, his first was on the bottom. So he's got a cute little jack-o-lantern grin! Let's hope the grin fills in by halloween though!

And lastly, I have to say my child is extremely friendly too. He met a few strangers (some old friends) this weekend and took to them very easily. He is very charming and easy to get smiles out of these days. And it's easier for ME to get laughs out of him. He has the funniest belly laugh... it just makes me laugh too! He is so fun to play games with and laugh with! I just can't get enough!

Liam is as friendly as his Mama. How fun about his first steps! The first year and all the milestones that go with it go so quickly.

How cute that he has one tooth on top and one on bottom! Liv's are both on the bottom. YAY for Liam and his walking. He'll be zooming all over soon!!

All I can say is "Watch out, Mama!" Kenley's been walking for about a month and they're much harder to keep track of! (Plus, they only walk a short time. Then they RUN everywhere!)

YAY Liam!

I love love LOVE that they hold their hands up in the air as they're learning to walk. I hope Sam does it forever...ok, maybe not but I'm not ready to see it go away just yet.

I wish I could see all this cute stuff going on! You've gotta post videos of the hands up walking and photos of the Jackolantern smile!

I wish I could... I don't have MY computer back, so my memory cards are FULL! I need to find a way to burn the cards onto CD so I can take more photos. As you can probably guess, I am going nuts!

Wow! Wow! Double wow.

Wow way to go Liam! Boo has taken his first steps but they don't count because I didn't see them. So until I see them, it doesn't count!

I can't wait to see a picture of him with his new tooth!

Yay Liam! How exciting for you! Time to babyproof one step higher!

Gabriela said...

Yay Liam!!! Good luck, things get much harder here on out. (but more fun too!)

The fun begins!!!

When Annabelle started walking and engaging with people I really started to see her personality shine like never before. It was then that I TRULY began to appreciate the person that she is...

I'm so excited for all of you- this is such a fun time.

Wow, big things going on in your house. Enjoy sitting down now, you won't be doing much of it when he's walking all the time! ;)

Congratulations on the steps! And don't worry, those teeth will file in sooner than you expect. Eleana got her first 3 really slowly, then cut 4 more all at the same time! Yikes!

Yay, Liam! It so fun to see them start walking. Did you videotape?
