Liam is a ball of energy. When he was in my tummy I told everyone that I couldn't believe how active he was and he kicked so much. Nothing has changed since he entered the world. Perhaps time is going by even faster because we are constantly running after him. And those legs take him running all over. He jumps. He kicks balls. He climbs everything. And uses them to dance.

Balls...his favorite word and toy. Football, basketball, play ball, small, big, heavy, light...they are his favorite thing. I try to encourage rolling them in the house, but he prefers throwing...and he's good (nothing like our wildflower t-ball player), when he takes t-ball, he's going to be an all-star.
All boy...he is physical (prefers propelling his body from high places and trying to break body parts, rather than sitting to do anything), loud (yelling, singing and crying as loud as possible), and loves to figure out how everything works (he will take a cap on and off a marker and be mesmerized with figuring out how to put it back on), also loves banging random objects into anything (including his head into the stove - not sure why?)

|...and then was going to jump down...geesh!|
|boxes of stuff - proof I am packing!|
Smart...I know I just said he likes to bang his head into the stove, but seriously he is smart, like I said he loves figuring things out and he is always smart enough, when he is in trouble to either A.) get rid of the evidence or B.) use a distraction like his cute dancing or a funny face to take us back to smiling. He says Dada, Mama, Ball, Duck, Car, Uh-oh and Hi (favorites are ball and car). His curiosity can sometimes get him into trouble.He can also hold a crayon relatively well and
|can be found in the pantry looking at things|
Music...he LOVES it. Loves listening to it and dancing to it.
Eating...he is the best eater. Anything and everything in sight, including and not limited to, whatever his sister doesn't finish. Even uses his fork and spoon and loves drinking things from a straw. At about 17 months he started to self-wean from his right-before-bed nursing session...by just stopping, then sometimes he does again, but it has become few and far between, so I am considering this, him self-weaning. Don't worry he is still doing food facials, to keep up that baby skin appearance.
Sleep...he's not the best sleeper, but in his defense, he had a double ear infection about a month and half ago which resulted in his ear drum rupturing and then two weeks ago he had another double ear infection and his other ear drum ruptured and he had Bronchiolitis and got all four of his molars in from December-March, during all these illnesses, so obviously no one was sleeping around here. To self-soothe he uses his blankie and rubs the tag, and he still uses a nuk (which I have no idea how we are going to get rid of, by the way).
His sister...he loves her. He waits for her to wake from her nap. Cries at the gate when she goes up to her room. Tries to constantly sit on her lap. He really looks up to her. I am glad they have each other forever.

Apparently we raise kids that like to point at farm animals.
