10 Months.

I know I say this every month, but how is Liam already 10 months old? He's going to be 1 yr. old so soon!

Physical Growth-
We went in for his 9 month appointment about 3 weeks ago. He was weighing 20.5 lbs (41%) was 29 inches (73%) and his head was 87%, can't remember what it was.

Tricks
-Throws balls
-Plays soccer with balls (really he crawls around and pushes it with his hands and chases it)
-Does head butts
-Can give high 5
-waves bye-bye.
-Gives kisses
-Can walk and clap at the same time :)

-Liam is pretty much walking most of the time now. He can turn around and everything. It's so cute to watch him. He still likes to walk to things and then hold on, and then keep going. But, he can walk over 20 steps.
-He loves to climb the stairs. We have to watch him because if we are downstairs with Devin's family he can escape really quickly and go to the stairs.
-He thinks uncle Jeff is hilarious. He loves to be chased by him. He will just laugh and laugh.
-Liam enjoys sneaking into the bathroom. We have to be super careful to leave the door shut. He always goes in there and throws all of the soap bottles and anything on the side of the tub- into the tub. Then he tries to get them (which results in him falling in and hitting his head). He also likes to get into the toilet paper, trash, and toilet.
-HE thinks he is hilarious. He laughs at himself all the time.
-He tries to feed himself with the spoon. He will bite on when I am feeding it and grab the spoon. Then he tries to stick the spoon into the bowl to get some food, but then just flings in around and sticks the spoon (now without food) into his mouth.
-Always hangs on my legs. Walks over to me and just hangs all over me. It gets a little frustrating sometimes. Apparently my mom said I did the same thing, up until I was like 8. Shoot.
-Tries to make the indian sound with his mouth.
-clicks his tongue.
-Throws tantrums. If he doesn't get what he wants, he will freak out. Mostly when we shut the bathroom door or take something away from him.
-He has 8 teeth. He GRINDS his teeth though, and it drives me nuts. How do I get him to stop doing this??
-Can get off the couch by himself. He knows how to turn backwards.
I love this baby so much. I am so lucky to be his mom. He is so much fun to play with these days. Even though he is naughty sometimes. Enjoy some picturs. I have a funny video to upload sometime, but the computer is being difficult.
i'm a big boy!
liam with some friends.
so sweet in the mornings. I usually bring him in bed with me and we snuggle for a little bit before he starts wanting to play.
i love bath time!
how did he go from not being able to move really to walking around eating crackers??

Walking Baby Boy.

Liam is officially walking as of last Thursday (the 15th). That was when he really started walking instead of crawling to everything. I would say he is walking just as much as crawling now. So cute! Here is a video. I don't know how to change the direction of it, but enjoy.

The End of Summer, Fall is here. and GOOD NEWS


NOTE: LONG POST.
Good news first:
I have a job! I applied at billiejo clothing and got the job! I will be a seamstress for them! :) I go in for training on Tuesday. I'm super excited. I get to work at home, do something I love, and make money!! And do pretty much as much or little as I like.
I just have to say that I am so excited about fall! The weather has been incredible. So, my mom decided that I needed to come to Wisconsin again this summer. So I was able to do that. But this time I was with my other sister, Tyler. And her two kids. Airports with kids can be a nightmare. So note to mom and dad: MOVE TO UTAH! :) St. George would be just fine.

Other than that we have just been moving into our new apartment (my in-laws basement). We are trying to save money, and this is the best way to do it. Anyway. My sister drove down here to Highland on Monday night (29th of August) with her two kids. They are adorable. Then Monday morning Devin took us to the airport. My mom paid extra for our tickets so we would be priority boarding and be able to get on first and everything. Well, she needs to get her money back. To sum it up, our flight at 8:55 was canceled. We were not able to get on the 12:00 flight. So we had to sit in the airport until 5pm. Yep. With a 5 year old, 2 year old, and 9 month old. Devin's mom had to bring me formula because i didn't have enough food for Liam. So we made it Vegas. Then waited there for 3 hours until we could go to Milwaukee. We got in around 1am. Thank goodness I have a good baby. He slept the entire plane ride. In fact, both of them. We stayed in a hotel that night, thank goodness.

The next morning my mom to Kady to play in the pool while Tyler and I bathed the boys and packed up.. We finally got home. The next couple of days we just chilled. We were tired. Some of the things we did while in Wisconsin was go to the beach, got a campsite and made dinner (then came home to sleep in our beds). I was able to hang out with some old friends! I saw Katie Schultz a few times which is always nice. I also saw my best friend from middle school, Anna Simono. She is doing really good. It was nice to see her. Every time I go to wisconsin I think about highschool and my old friends and feel nostalgic. I wish I would have stayed in contact with some of my really good friends. But life goes on!

Most nights I would say I was going to bed early, but then Tyler would make me hot chocolate and we'd stay up late and eat snacks. We watcheed Monty Python and the Holy Grail with my parents. All four of us watched it in their bed. Haha. While the kids were sleeping. We also had a little birthday party for Kady and Bradon. Their birthdays are both this month. It was really cute. Bradon LOVED his cars. And they both loved frosting their cupcakes. It was cute.

We went to church Sunday and then we went to the Milwaukee zoo on Monday before we left. I think the kids loved it. We then went to the hotel and took naps and went swimming. Mom bought pizza and then we just rested a little bit. We had to get up at 4:45 am the next morning to get to the airport. It was miserable. But luckily all our flights went smoothly. Liam had a blowout on the plane, but mostly slept. He is such a good boy.
Here are some pictures from the visit. There are a ton and all out of order, sorry

I have more pictures but they won't upload. So now we are back. I got to see my husband! I always miss him tons when I leave. Now it's fall and I am looking forward to hot chocolate, Halloween, crafting, Thanksgiving and of course Christmas. I know it's a couple months away but i LOVE this time of year!!

My baby boy: 9 months.

I have so much to catch up on, but i will just do a quick post on my baby boy at 9 months.
-I think he says "mama", but how do we know for sure.
-has 5 teeth out, two more on the way.
-takes steps all by himself sometimes. most of the time we have to convince him to walk to us. He is still really unstable. I'm sure he'll be walking...soon-ish.
- is very clingy to mom.
-started liking strangers, he will give them smiles now instead of burying his face in my neck.
-the biggest mooch in the world. if we have food, he thinks he needs it!! It's pretty funny. And we actually give him pretty much anything we are eating. it's really nice.
-Liam loves his blankets
-Still wearing some 9 month clothes but also some 12 months. He's just too big!
I'm going to do a post on our Wisconsin vacation with many more pictures. So here are just a few of Liam.
Big blue eyes, also a big red mark on his forehead. poor guy is always falling on his head.
I now make him feed himself :) It's so cute.
