When people ask me how old Liam is now, I find myself caught between saying his age in months or a year. For so long now it has been months so it feels natural to say he is 13, almost 14 months old but hitting that year mark felt like such a big step too so occasionally I'll say "just barely over a year". Either way, it has made me miss not sharing month-to-month updates on our little guy because he changes SO much every single day. Instead of continuing the month-to-month thing as he gets bigger, I thought I would start something new and share a few things every so often that he has discovered and that I want to remember. Here are five things about Liam lately ...

He has three new words in his vocabulary besides momma and dada ... yeah, hi, and my personal favorite, Rue! Every morning after getting Liam out of his crib and changing his diaper, we walk out into the kitchen together and Rue is the first thing he runs to (besides dada of course!). Whenever he says her name unprompted it comes out "Ruh" or "Boo" (so adorable!) but he often mimics us and says "Hi Rue" in this high pitched little squeaky voice. She is definitely his best friend!

Liam marches to the tune of his own drum whenever he is given the opportunity to roam somewhere on his own but if I call out to him with my hand outstretched, he grabs onto my finger(s) to walk beside me and my heart melts into a puddle.

He finally got the hang of his sippy cup and throws that thing back and swigs it like it his first sign of water after being in the desert for a million days. So hilarious!

Hide-and-Go-Seek has been one of his favorite games for a while now but he recently learned that he can be the one to hide from you and pop his head out to be found! ;)

He goes into fits of giggles whenever you make kitten or puppy sounds or say "here kitty kitty" to him. I don't know what is so funny about those sounds but when he starts to giggle, we can't help but say them over and over and over again just to hear those giggles one more time because they never grow old.
We sure love watching him grow and learn new things! He is quite the little character with the best personality. He is definitely so fun to be around!
