~Liam knows all of the alphabet... I don't know when it happened but it's been in the last month or so that there are no more mix ups. And the letter O is not a "kircle" anymore, it's an "O!" I thought it was pretty cute that all zeros and O's were circles to him. And lowercase L's were the number 1, but not anymore. His counting has improved greatly too. He goes into the high teens now.
~Last night during dinner, Daddy asked Liam if we should go camping sometime soon. Liam got all excited and said, "Yeah! Pamping!" So of course the rest of the evening we took a few more opportunities to have Liam say the word camping. "Pamping!!!"
~Liam was such a big helper last night. I got a spring cleaning bug in me, so I'd invite him to help me with a few things. He helped wash the front picture window, inside and outside. He cleaned the kickboard of the front door (and I cleaned the rest of the door). He helped me vacuum the stairs and also helped pick up his toys.
~Liam has had a hard time going to bed the past week or more. The time change kinda compounded the matter. Last night we were getting pretty impatient as we wanted to watch a movie and Liam just wouldn't go down without many screaming requests from his bedroom. I finally related to Ian, after he asked what we should do, that I was going to bring Liam down and take him on the front porch to cool off and give him a talking to. (It was pretty hot in his bedroom and with the added carrying on, we knew he was probably sweating at this point.) So I went up and grabbed Liam, stood at the top of the stairs with him as I counted to 3 for him to stop crying and get himself together. (He's been taught this trick as going downstairs is a big treat when it's bed time.) The crying ceased and I made my way to the front door and out. I talked to him about a warm bed verses the cold front porch. I went on about how nice his bed is and sleeping outside would be sooo cold. I then told him that Daddy is not going to "cuggle" him (this is always the main request from Liam). Daddy is only going to cuddle Mommy from now on. "So, are you ready to go back to your warm bed to cuddle your silky, blanky and pillows?" Yes was his reply and with him repeating the phrase Daddy "cuggles" Mommy, we headed up the stairs. I put him in his bed and we didn't hear anything more from him.
