almost Christmas

As usual, it’s been far too long since I’ve taken a spare minute and updated these pages. As I write, Liam is pulling himself up on our bookshelves and trying to pull big, heavy textbooks down on himself. No, now he’s playing with the electrical cord. No, now he’s crawling around and around the big library chair. No…. well, you get the picture.

Liam is on the move now. Some of his favorite past-times and new skills are:
pushing ANYTHNG around the house as if it were a car. Cars and trucks are best, but when one isn’t readily available, the wipes box will do — or a book, or a stuffed animal, or even an empty Christmas lights box, as is the case at this particular instance.
pulling himself up to standing on absolutely everything.
walking — holding mom’s or dad’s hands.
washing mom’s face when she’s done with his.
giving kisses.
playing in the dog’s water dish.
carrying on conversations in crypto mode.
being chased by Clifford, the big red dog.
Liam’s first Christmas is nearly upon us. He’s been such a good boy this year, we can’t wait to see what’s under the tree!
