one :: He points at everything he sees and patiently waits for you to tell him what it is. Hopefully mimicking follows soon!
two :: His three favorite foods right now ... banana, peanut butter toast, and yogurt! If he refuses to eat anything I have made for him, I always know he will eat those three things.
three :: Twirling, using a spoon, and saying woof woof when he sees a puppy are his newest tricks! And when the spoon thing gets old, dipping the opposite end in or drinking your yogurt works too, in case you were wondering. ;)
four :: He started showing an interest in trucks and cars and will point to them and gasp whenever we are outside!
five :: He learned to scrunch up his nose, lips, and eyebrows and make the grumpiest face you've ever seen. haha
six :: Remember how I mentioned I had an emotionally hard time with the end of nursing?? Well ever since then I suddenly have the most snugly baby in the whole world. I think Liam secretly knew I was struggling and this was his way of showing me that he still adores me and I'm so grateful! He just randomly runs up to me throughout the day and climbs in my lap and throws his arms around my neck. My heart breaks every time in the best way!!
seven :: Speaking of another positive thing about not nursing anymore, it has caused a change in the bedtime routine that I love just as much as what he used to do. After giving his dad a hug, I put his blanket on my shoulder and he giggles and jumps into my arms. Then he immediately turns himself around so he can see his dad again and gives him a big cheesy grin followed by a wave. Melt my heart. After Nic closes the door and leaves us in the dark room together, for the briefest of moments, he lays his head on my shoulder and suddenly becomes my baby all over again. I always try to sing to him too but he usually pops his head back up and points to his crib.
eight :: He is OBSESSED with technology. Obsessed! And is able to point out T.V.'s, phones, etc. no matter where we are but the best part is, the ginormous excited grunt/exhale sound he makes as soon as he spots one! I wish I could describe it better for you. I'm just going to have to make sure I get it on video before he quits doing it because it is seriously THE BEST!
How he talks on the phone ....
Just throw it over your shoulder and talk into your elbow! haha
nine :: Ask him any question in the world right now and his response will be "yeah!" "Liam, am I the best mom in the world? ... YEAH ... Is dad the best dad in the world ... YEAH ... Do you love us both so much ... YEAH" I mean, it's a real self esteem booster!!
ten :: He jabbers ALL day long with every other word being, you guessed it, "YEAH."
Besides the massive molars he is getting right now, I LOVE THIS AGE!!!
