Liam has been busy

Well, "busy" is an understatement, but I am trying to stay positive. Here are a few of the happy helping things Liam has been up to the past couple weeks... Some sane two year old moments...

He helped Daddy plant our garden!

The seedlings are already a few inches tall!




He helped Daddy fly a remote control plane!



He colored many designs on our driveway!




He played with, organized and made a mess of miscellaneous buttons while Mommy worked!

He loves "bunts" because, apparently, they are just so entertaining.



And finally, he helped Daddy build our outdoor chicken coop!

Good thing too, because our indoor chicks are about to fly the cardboard coop!



He also vacuumed up a huge mess of foam he had crumbled this evening. Cleaning his own big messes is a plus in my book.

Wow he's getting big fast! And adorable as always.

I hope keeping him busy is helping with your sanity, I guess that's all you can do at this age!
That or escape for a day.. :)

Great idea on the buttons, I need to steal that one for sure.

Such a big boy. I look forward to seeing him in a few months.
Thank goodness for simple things like buttons, right? I feel the same way about other household staples, like measuring spoons, tupperware and paper.

What a good little helper!

I like your new design! Very calming.

I showed my two older daughters your blog, and they agree with me: your son is the cutest boy on the planet. Need babysitters this summer? :)

I feel a need for a backyard-party-that-spills-into-the-frontyard-complete-with-sidewalk-chalk as soon as the weather warms up.

It is wonderful when you can gte them to help, and buttons are a lot of fun! I remember playing with them when I was a child.

I love the new colors to your site - the blues and browns are are very calming.

Glad all is well, and that he's having good moments in the world of "toddlerhood."

I love the new blog design! Liam is such an adorable helper. I forgot for a moment about your baby chicks! Wow, you are dedicated to those animals to be building them a hutch and keeping them outside. I am impressed!

Haven't stopped in for a while...I like your new look.

Looks like Liam's been busy being a two-year-old boy. Gosh, he's looking more and more "grown up" each time I see new pics!

It's scary how fast they grow.

He is so adorable! I love it when kids will clean their own messes! What a blessing! Are we still on for Wednesday?
