liam is two

January 18, 2016

On Sunday Liam turned two. To celebrate, we took the family to Chuck E. Cheese and the kids had a blast. Of course it was crazy, but I stressed less about this party than any other I’ve ever thrown. All I did was make a cake (in the shape of the easiest ball I could think of). His actual birthday was a regular Sunday, but I did make chocolate chip pancakes and made sure to take him to the park. It was a good day. Liam turning two isn’t too big of a deal, but it does feel momentous in that two is the age where kids really start to seem more like kids and less like babies or even…

liam at one year

January 26, 2015

He: >weighs 23 pounds, 15 ounces (85th percentile) and is 30.5 inches long (74th percentile). Slowed down on the growth but still a big boy. :) >just got over yet another sinus infection, this time with eye involvement for fun. Oh the joys of giving a one-year-old eye drops three times a day! >has been super cuddly lately and is very much a mama’s boy (still). >is obsessed with this one mole I have on my upper chest and is always trying to pick it up. He doesn’t realize it’s not going anywhere. >likes to stick his fingers in my ear while he nurses. >is transitioning away from breastmilk at daycare which means we are nursing a lot more in…

liam at eleven months

December 17, 2014

He: >Got sick. Again. (He totally had a fever when I took these photos.) This time it was the flu, even though he did have the flu shot – but he got on Tamiflu and was better in a day. I was shocked that his ears, nose, and throat were all pristine. I started up his breathing treatments again and praying that we can keep things under control. >Learned to play Peekaboo and I forgot how awesome that is. The funniest part is that he doesn’t realize he’s supposed to cover up his eyes so he will just lift his arms up over his head and bring them down again. He thinks it’s the best thing in the world. >Wants to…

liam at ten months

November 20, 2014

He: >Seems to be constantly sick. I’ve mentioned this here and there, but we are still in the process of figuring out what exactly is going on. Looks like he actually doesn’t have asthma (even though he has a lot of the symptoms). Right now we are awaiting the results of some bloodwork and if everything checks out there, we will be going to an ENT next. My guess is that maybe he needs his adenoids removed or ear tubes. We’ll see. >Lost some weight being sick, yet still remains in the 90-95th percentile. That sweatshirt he’s wearing in the pictures is 18 months. >Is super squirmy most of the time. He’s actually hard to even hold, especially because he…

liam at nine months

October 21, 2014

He: >Had a wet cough for weeks and weeks until it finally turned into a sinus infection. Then he did ten days of antibiotics, and on the tenth day he got a fever. Ear infection. So he’s still sick, poor boy, plus the diaper rash and diarrhea that goes along with antibiotics. >Weighs 25 pounds 7 ounces. That’s 100th percentile. >Usually cries and struggles when I put him in the car seat now. >Loves: a big basket of toys, being turned upside down, watching Meredith jump on the bed and her general silliness, funny gurgling noises, and being outside. >Says, “nuh nuh nuh” when I put him in nursing position and I wonder if he’s actually trying to talk. >Usually…
