Family Updates

So Liam is now 13 months old. I don't know if i'm going to continue to do monthly posts..but i'll probably just update every time he does something new/cute.
Liam has gotten SO SMART. I can't believe it. He knows a few signs..
more, eat, please, finished (all done), bath, and we are working on 'again'. He usually just claps his hands when he tries doing that one. Anyway, I can't resist when he comes up and communicates with me telling me he wants to eat please. It's the cutest thing ever.
Lately he has been making this cute face every time he see's his reflection. It makes me laugh.
Here's the new face he makes. This isn't even the best picture of it.

Since the weather has been so nice we've been able to go outside almost every day and play. Liam loves to be outside.

And now for a pregnancy update: I am 19 weeks (hopefully half way done hah..) We have another ultrasound on Tuesday. This one will measure how big the baby is and how he is developed. I'm excited. I love ultrasounds. As for my body- man i'm getting huge fast. I'm way bigger than I was with Liam at this point. And this baby is sitting really low. I think i carried Liam higher, but who knows until he gets a little bigger I guess. But I've been having sciatic nerve pains. No heartburn thank goodness. And I'm already feeling braxton hicks contractions I think. But I can also feel this little guy moving all the time. Devin has even felt him a few times. We are so excited!

Christmas Break

Christmas break was awesome!! It was so nice to spend with family. We were able to spend the evening of the 22nd with Devin's family. Mostly we had dinner and opened presents. The LeBaron's were packing and getting ready to leave to Arizona/Texas in the morning. (We were really jealous not to be joining them...but that's okay). We were spoiled. Thanks for all the gifts.
Then we went to Idaho the next morning. Christmas break was a lot of fun. Devin made a bed for my nephew. It's super cute! And I did some sewing, plying spades with my family, and watching ridiculous movies. Devin and I were given a date night for Christmas from my parents. It was so fun! We went shopping, out to eat, saw Sherlock Holmes 2, and went swimming. It was my first night away from Liam, so I was a little nervous. But it was so nice to have a little break! Thanks mom for watching him.
Favorite things about Christmas break:
-Spending time with family
- Playing on my dad's ipad
- Liam following my dad around. He LOVED my dad and always wanted to be by him or be held by him. So cute. He loved my siblings too...but not as much.
- Date night
- Sacrament meeting on Christmas morning. It was beautiful. It was mostly the choir singing and a little Christmas narration. It helped me get in the spirit of what Christmas is really about.
-Bowling with the family (I did HORRIBLE).

Anyway I really enjoyed this Christmas. It was pretty relaxing and nice to spend with family. I'm so grateful for my Savior and the chance we have to celebrate His birth!
Here are the only pictures I took. I forgot my camera so all I had was my phone...

Proof that Liam couldn't get enough of Papa.
