Photo Update (Last night and today)



Before Ian left for his winter overnighter with the scouts, he went to Sportsman's Warehouse to get some supplies. He bought himself an expensive hiking pack (apparently from me for Valentine's day) and Liam this handy dandy chair for $5! I was excited about the price (of the chair and the chair only) and Liam was excited that he had his own chair, FINALLY! P.S. Liam is picking his nose in this photo. The angle was just right to disguise it.



Also last night: Just an empty hot chocolate canister with an X in the lid. Homemade pound-a-ball!



Today I took Liam to the play place at the local mall. This is really the ONLY thing to do with a tiny boy on a winter day. (He is too noisy when I take him to the library.) He had a very fun time climbing all over the stationary car, jeep, train and bus. And an even better time just people watching, or kid watching. He loves other kids. He always has a curious/serious look on his face. It took a lot of coaxing to get this grin out of him.



When Liam and I got home from the mall (and other errands), I called Ian and was surprised that he was only a few minutes away from home. He got home, played with Liam for a bit then we decided to go out to dinner. We hoped the wait wasn't too bad at T.G.I. Fridays. We got there and found out there was a 20 minute wait. I think it ended up being close to 30 minutes, but this Fridays just happens to be attached to a hotel, so we let Liam run loose while we waited. It was the perfect situation for waiting. Our boy had a great time running up and down the halls and going up and down the stair wells. Here are some highlights of the waiting.




Ian and I wanted to try the 3 course meals for $12.99. Quite the deal for an appetizer, entree and dessert! I got the "grown up mac and cheese" with Liam in mind to share it with. It was excellent. So much so that Liam finished what was on his little plate and took that grown up fork and reached over to my dish of grown up pasta! I was floored that he actually got some on his fork each time reaching like he was! I had to laugh! I guess I'll have to teach him table manners later. For now, it's endearing having my little one stealing food.

LOl Nothing like a little nose pick. He is gorgous. I love that green hat how cuts is that. Gina you do a wonderful job with this blog for Liam.

Kik said...

I love the hat too! Liam looks like he is getting so big! These are way cute pics!

And how nice of you to get such an expensive and much-wanted Valentine's Day gift for Ian. ;)
Hopefully he returns the favor.

Too cute! Stealing food is what boys do. My 11 year old is just shy of stealing it right out of our mouths. This child can eat like a full grown man!

Love his froggy hat!

Terri said...

Magoo just started picking his nose too... cracks me UP!

I laughed when I read that you had disguised it and then divulged it to us anyway! Hilarious.

He is really growing up... so much more like a little boy than like a baby. Do you see it too?

Kai-Li will pick her nose now and then try to put it only you!
I just love his little frog hat! As always Liam has the best clothes!
Funny how you bought a valentines present without knowing!;)

Oh, The Joys said...

Help me! Cuteness overdose!

Too Cute!!

Love the hat and nose picking!

Kayelyn said...

I so love his little grin. He is soo cute.

Funny about that Valentine's gift. 17 1/2 years ago I unknowingly bought Allen a $4000 stereo system! Since then we have a deal that anything over $200 requires spousal consultation, unless it's a new diamond ring. I didn't utter a complaint or objection this last Christmas!

I love that frog hat on him. And that one where he is looking at the camera all sly like. SO cute.

Nell said...

Oh I love all these adorable pictures!

I LOVE that grin on his face while he's sitting on that yellow thing at the play place. He is such a cutie!

Love the sly one! And what's not to love about a hiking back page for VDay?

;-)

My husband caught heck from me for giving me 9 different baking dishes for Xmas. All wrapped separately. All with the promise that they were "something really good!!" It's hard to pretend to be thrilled upon opening the forth gift of the same thing--let alone 9!

I told him he owes me an iPod for valentine's day.

Oh my gosh Gina - I'm a "Liam's Mommy" too! My Liam was born on October 29, 2005...what a small world! I love the photos of your cutie pie and your blog is really great too! I really like the birthday letters you're writing to Liam. ~Jody

Kristen said...

Ahhh...the nose picking. Care Bear is doing that all the time now and it just grosses me out!!

Looks like Liam was the little monkey....and a cute one at that. ;-) I enjoy reading about and seeing pictures of all of Liam's adventures.

soleclaw said...

He's adorable as ever. I looove your coffee can/ball pounding thing. Great great great idea. I'm stealing it!

Eleana is so much in love with her nose that she prefers sticking things in it as opposed to pulling things from it. It's become an absolute nightmare, to the point that she can't have cheerios, raisins or even mac n cheese without complete adult supervision.

It looks like you had a great day. I'm glad you finally got a chair for Liam...and you can't beat 5 bucks! It's cute how liam stole your food...funny little boy!
