Happy 10 Month Birthday!!

Happy 10 Month Birthday Liam!!!
I know I say this every month but... 10 months how is that possible!?!?!
Today we went for his 9 month well baby check (ooopppss!) and we have a beautiful, very healthy, very tall and very skinny 10 month old!!  (words of the dr!)

Liam measured in at 19lbs 15 oz and 31 inches.  This makes him in the 98% for height and 26% for weight!  (Kim he is going to give D some competition with the weight:)  Although his % is double digits:)!!)
between 9 and 10 months Liam has done A LOT!!!

Liam had his VERY first and hopefully last ambulance ride (see the post below) and first ER visit

Liam has been doing the army crawl for awhile but he has started to crawl more (especially since getting an area rug).  He moves pretty fast but knows he can get there faster by army crawl so he goes back to that.
Liam is pulling up on everything!  NOTHING is safe anymore!  Emma no longer has a safety spot for her things:)

Liam LOVE, LOVES crawling up on the trampoline.  He loves to stand on it and pretend to bounce.  Both him and Emma love to jump on it together.  Ummmmm that might last a few more weeks.  He also discovered the stairs and has made it up a few!

Just recently he has been going in the bounce house with Emma and they both love that.  He just laughs at her and she gets sillier and sillier by the minute when he is in there!

Liam is still a fabulous sleeper and sleeps 12-13.5 hours at night, 1.5-2hour AM nap and a 2+hour PM nap:)  My boy likes his beauty sleep.  The last two weeks he has been not him normal self and was waking at night and not taking great naps:(  We are back on track though!  It just reminded me those few nights getting up once or twice to calm him down how blessed I am with both Emma and Liam that they allow us to get full night sleep every night:)!!

Liam eats a total of a jar or 2-3 ice cubes of food at breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Most fruits and Veggies I have frozen and the "meats" I buy.  He takes 4-6oz bottles depending on which bottle it is and is starting to use or play with the cup more!

Liam is a VERY lazy baby and still won't hold his bottle but I did get him to hold it once:)

We are alive!!! (long and LOTS of pictures!)

It has been a long time since I have written much!!!
Let's go back to this picture that I posted and never wrote what happened...
We went to the library Liam was sitting in his stroller in the seat not the carseat.  We were out in the parking lot and Aunt Kim and the kids came.  We waited for them to get out of the car to say hi...  fast forward...  Emma ran over to me and I bent down to pick her up.  In split second I here the crash, see my sisters face and hear her saying THE STROLLER!!!  Liam's stroller did not lock in place and it rolled off the sidewalk and flipped twice!  When I turned around he was pinned under it and started to cry a few seconds later.  I was shaking so bad it was hard for me to unbuckle him!!!  I grabbed him and did not want to look for the fear of blood... but there was none just a NASTY bump.  A nurse was there and insisted that we called 911 and get an ambulance because it was his head.  So this little guy had his first ambulance ride!  We spent the day there!  He was ok and the bruise was almost gone by the morning it was crazy.  Emma was very excited that Liam bumped his head because she got to go to Aunt Kims and then she was more excited to sleep in Aunt Kim and Uncle Erics room!!!  Now everytime we go to the library she says "YAY!!  Liam bump head and I go to Aunt Kim's!"  Hopefully that never happens again!!!

Watching Emma outside!

Liam wants to join the fun!
 We have had such a beautiful fall!  It is 11/26 now and it was close to (or warmer) then 60 today!  just crazy!  Emma enjoyed her first time jumping in the leaves!

 Liam enjoyed his first swing.  Emma enjoyed pushing him "gently"

Perfect Chew toy:)
 He really wanted to play in the leaves too!!!
Can't you tell:)

apparently she thought she needed to feed Liam the leaves
Someone is getting BIG!!!  Look what he is beginning to do!!!

Baby Gates are back on!

Spending time with Sabol!

Emma got to stay up SUPER late in her world to watch two movies!  We watched Jingle all the way and Elf on the Shelf movie.  They were both so cute and she loved laying on her new carpet watching them (told you she loves the carpet Grandma!!!)

Off to look for the PERFECT Christmas tree at Papa's store!  Hard to believe that Liam will almost be 1 year old on Christmas!  Crazy how fast time goes and last year I was ready to burst:)

Getting some Delaney Love!


Makes me laugh!

The weather today reminded me of the weather in SC for the first Christmas tree hunt with Emma!
It is rare here but I'll take it for a few more days and then bring on the snow for Christmas!!!

Hopefully after this LONG entry I will get back on track with updating!  I guess these two little ones keep me busy!!!
