Sweet shades

My little man

        Liam is nearly 7 1/2 months old now...!!! He started crawling at 6 1/2 months and he's been trying to get into all sorts of mischief. I know when he's in something he shouldn't because then it will get very quiet. :) Now he tries to chase Max all around, giggling up a storm, but Max is starting to run away every time he starts heading towards him. Max is also learning to stay very close when Liam is eating in hopes of catching crumbs or something Liam flings. He's a cutie pie and besides having a bit of a cold for a week, he's been super happy.

      We're in a new apartment and I'm trying to get settled, and I'm getting closer. My biggest roadblock is my sectional doesn't fit in my living room, so I don't want to set everything up until I have sold that and get a new couch. Any takers for a HUGE sectional??

     Here's many pictures of lil' Liam. A bunch of the pictures of him are captured right after I say his name and he looks up with his slack jaw going on. :) It's like those birthday pics my mom would always get of us right before we're blowing out our birthday candles-"what?"

Slack jaw action

Falling asleep in the middle of playing :)

He also fell asleep under the blanket while playing

He wakes up and is instantly smiling, I'm so happy to have a happy baby!

Cute stretches

Brothers :)

He bonked his eye and it was a little swollen :(

He was really holding himself on the bars! I was so impressed! :)

He now has the wingspan of a Kestrel

He and the monkey liked each other

6 months

       Liam turned 6 months on July 31st. I cannot believe how fast time has flown by. He's still the sweetest baby ever. Going into his room in the morning is so great. I'm met with the biggest grin on his face and it lights up my world. I used to not be a morning person, but it's not so hard getting up now. :)
      Liam had his check up and he's 17 1/2 lbs, 27 1/2 inches. He only gained 1 1/2 lbs and only grew 1 1/2 inches from his 4 month checkup! It seemed like he grew sooo much more because he grew out of so many clothes. Now we're down to almost nothing, ha! He sure went through those clothes fast, I thought I'd have plenty of more time before I needed to buy more clothes. That's life. He is the best eater. He will eat up anything you give to him. He eats soooo much! Except for the 12 hours he sleeps at night, he still eats as often as he did when he was a newborn (every 3 hours), just more. He's a big boy. He's not fat, just BIG, solid. The only time he really gets upset is over food, so you don't have to really guess what's wrong with him :)
      He's been sitting up on his own for a while, and is starting to pull on me or furniture to aid himself up. He is on the verge of crawling! He'll prop himself up on his hands and knees, and will once in a while launch himself forward. He actually launched himself right into the corner of my laptop the other day and got a bit of a swollen eye, but it didn't blacken the next day. Poor guy :(  He is mobile in his own way. He'll scootch himself on his belly or steam roll to wherever he wants. There's no containing him now :) His favorite thing is to motorboat his lips, spit, and blow raspberries on his arms, hands, feet, and me! :) So sweet... He'll talk to himself  a lot, saying ba, or just cooing. He's a laugher too. I love getting him to squeal and giggle.
      This post is kind of like picture overload, but that's the best part :) Enjoy!

Hanging with Grandpa Trent

My cousin Camille gave him this cute onsie, I love the long sleeved onsies! So cute

He love staring at you and playing with your face, it's the sweetest thing ever

The boy of many expressions :)

He loves riding on your shoulders

He was sitting up, and then slid down into this pose, haha! :)

Liam is such a happy boy. He melts my heart with his smile. We were playing the other day and he was just laughing and squealing up a storm! He would get so excited, his whole body would tense up and he would just scream and laugh! :) I love him so much.

This is my favorite, I can just hear his squealing
