9 Months

Can you believe this guy is 9 months old?!?! I sure can't!
We went in for his 9 month appointment last week. Other than being a skinny little thing, Liam is perfectly healthy!!! He weighed a huge 15 lbs. 12 oz. (.8 percentile) and was 27 1/2 inches long (24th percentile). I didn't realize how skinny Liam really was until my mom and I took him shopping this weekend. The first pair of 9 month pants he tried on fell to the floor! So...we resorted to some 3-6 month pants that are a little short, but they actually stay on his waist! Here are some recent pics of my precious, little guy!
The weekend we found out we were having a boy, my mom was in Chicago and got him this cute Chicago Bears onesie. We broke it out on Sunday and played a little football in the floor.
Touchdown, Bears!!!!!!
Looking for an open receiver.....
Here he is in the rocking chair my grandma bought him. I just love it! Behind his head is his name and on the back is his birthdate.
Nana and Liam. She came down for the weekend to do some shopping with us.
Thanks for visiting, Nana! Come back again soon!!!

It's the little things...

that make us happy in life. For Liam, sitting in a laundry basket while Daddy stuck his finger in and out made him a very happy boy. For me, seeing my precious baby having so much fun made me a very happy mama!

Riding Bullet

Last week while we were in Texas, Liam rode a carousel for the first time. In honor of it being OSU's first game day, Liam rode the only black horse...aka BULLET!!! (Yep, we gave it that name!) (Sorry the pics aren't the best, I didn't have my good camera with me.)

He loved the ride until the last 30 seconds when he started fussing and grabbing for me. Don't you just love our orange and black!?!?!?!

Fun Times

Last night we went to Toys R Us to get Liam some new, big boy toys. He loves his new walker. I think it's funny because it is designed like a walker an elderly person would use...only with a lot of toys on top to play with!
Here he is trying to keep up with the walker when it started to move! He was in shock that it didn't stay in one place.
No worries, though...he finally figured out how to "walk" with his walker!
He's having so much fun!!!
I know I keep saying it, but I think he will be crawling any day now!

We also started a new snack...biter biscuits. Liam loves them! He makes a huge mess every time I give him one, so of course he gets to hang out in his diaper, which he loves also! Oh my...I love this sweet face!!!

As soon as he finished his biscuit we headed straight to the bath. He played so hard all day, that he was completely ready for bed tonight. He fell asleep in his crib without a peep. Hopefully we won't hear from him again until the morning! :)

Look Who's Pulling Up!!!

We went to visit my brother in Grapevine for Labor Day. We had so much fun! On Saturday we shopped, watched the OSU game at Skye and Thad's and cooked out. Liam was great during the game! He rolled all over Skye and Thad's floor, slept on Nana and ate some Puffs. We spent Sunday doing a little more shopping, and then on Monday Liam decided he was going to show off for his Nana, Papa and Uncle by pulling himself up for the first time. Here he is getting ready for his new trick...
Working so hard....
And he's up! I didn't get a great pic of him standing, but you can see how proud he is of himself even from the side view!
Uh-oh...starting to fall...
After he fell...I love that he is still so happy!!!
Liam is still not crawling, but rolls everywhere. Tonight while I was cooking he was hanging out in the "Man Room" off of our kitchen. I checked on him and within 15 seconds he was in the kitchen floor watching me cook. He's our little rollie pollie!

I love the stage he is in right now! I really wish I could freeze time and keep him this age forever!!!!!
