Best Buddies

Maybe this is why Liam refuses to hold his bottle!

7 months... updated

Just hanging around!

7 months... 213 days!  We are now closer to a year old then we are the newborn!!  Liam has gotten SO big in the last few weeks!  He is getting more control of his body.  He is pretty lazy so he just flops around if you don't have a good hold on him:)
Loves to bounce!
A little about Liam at 7 months:
  • He is have 2 "meals" a day- still just the puree baby food and have been adding some of the stage 2 dinners ( I don't do the meats, I stick to only making fruits and Vegetables)
  • Takes about 27oz of milk a day
  • Sleeps 12+ hours at night.  Goes down between 5:30-6 and takes 2 -3 naps/day
  • LOVES his sister!! Whenever Emma is in the room he just smiles and watches her GO or throw a tantrum... whatever it may be at the moment
    hair spikes like his sister!
  • he loves his doggy/blanket
  • Liam takes  a paci but I don't think he is super attached to it.  Emma went to her thumb at 9months.  I am hoping he sticks with his paci and we can stop using it around 1.
  • A more serious shot:)
  • has 2 bottom teeth.  I think some more are coming because he is back to munching away on anything and EVERYTHING!!
  • so far we are not sitting (will sit leaning on me), just some wiggling to try to get to something.  If the ipad or computer are in front of him he will work extra hard to try to get it!

Here are some more of the photo's from our 7 month photoshoot:)

Old Friends, New Babies

I think we can say this is a SUCCESS!!!
Today Emma and I got together with some friends from High School that live in town and ones that were here visiting.  It was so wonderful seeing them all and meeting some of their kids for the first time (although Facebook makes you feel like you know them).  They are all the cutest and sweetest little kids!!
 One of the boys, Chase, brought a McQueen backback filled with cars.  He was SUPER SUPER sweet and let all the kids, er, I mean Emma the possessive car girl play with them!  He took two and then let her play with them the rest of the day!

 This is Shireen's little boy.  He is checking out the rain that Irene has sent us! 
Checking out the rain!
Shireen, Michelle, Zayn and Lily! 
I think these came out great!

Emma STILL playing with cars!

The BIG boys:)  Luke and Chase

A shot of most of the group

Maren was the youngest there and was so sweet!

 Here we go with our attempt for a picture!!

Notice the cars that Emma still has

 I think these are pretty successful for 10 kids under 3!  (2 were about 3.5 and the rest were under 2!!)

Wondering if they will EVER get their cars back!

Tyler and Emma!

Tyler hugging everyone good bye!  Giving Derek a hug

Pondering say good bye to her cars!
Getting together today was wonderful in so many ways!  It was so much fun to see all our little ones in the same room playing.  We have done this before with a some others when we have been in town and it just brings back so many wonderful memories of our childhood.  Today also brought some sad but happy memories of our friend Kelly.  As Michelle worded it in an email inviting us all to get together Kelly may not be here with us but she was there in spirit for sure. 

Here are a few pictures from our past get gatherings.

Summer 2009- A very Mini Reunion with Kelly, Elliot, Lisa, Miles, Luke, Emma and myself- 


We had such a wonderful day seeing all of my old friends and all of their babies!  We had such a great time that the real time got away from us and I decided to not give Emma a nap at 2:30 because she would be up to midnight so Liam went down at 5:15 and there was finally silence from Emma at 6:15!  AHHH the sound of SILENCE:)   
Now Mommy is off to watch Big Brother!
