Half Year Stats

Well first of all... We celebrated his half year birthday by going to the mall and riding the merry go
Round and letting him taste the top of a cupcake! He loved it all!!! He was just looking around on the carousel and stoked that he was holding the good metal pole and definitely didn't know he was on top of a horse, but we have pictures to prove it! Then, the cupcake. It was a mini, since it's his 6 month birthday and not 1 year... But he took a few bites of the frosting and there were no complaints about that! Then we headed home and he took a nice nap too reenergize after all that fun!!!

And so... Stats are in:
Height 28 inches- 93rd percentile!!!
Weight 18 lbs 2.5 ounces- 61st percentile!!!

He is eating rice cereal, peaches, bananas, carrots, applesauce and pretty much any thing else we give him! He is rolling and jumping in his bouncer! He loves to chat and is laughing quite a bit now too!!!

I can't believe Liam is already six months! Here is to the most fun and quickest six months that have ever passed!!!

Pictures to come!

Half A Year

Has 6 months already past?!?! All the good things that you wish you could slow down, seem like they just keep speeding up! Liam is 6 months already! He is so rad! He is super chatty, SO smiley and happy, rolls and plays and bounces! He is constantly doing new things! I would not be surprised if before we knew it, he was crawling :( Don't grow up too fast! We are doing family photos so we can capture how perfect out little man is and of course get Tadd and I and our little family!

Happy Half a Year Birthday Liam Michael! I love you more than you will ever know!!!

First update

Liam met his great grandma Bella! The two of them had the time of their life together! Liam was chatting her ear off and snuggling with her all day! And "Nona" which means grandmother in Italian, loved every second of it! She totally spoiled him (and us) with clothes and toys and love! We are ao grateful to have been able to spend time with grandma Bella and look forward to hopefully visiting her soon! We love our grandma Bella, aka Nona!!

Liam went on his first plane ride to San Diego...and it was a success! Although, we did kind of appear to be first timers when it came to checking/carrying all of our was still pretty uneventful. We flew out on Friday at noon and Liam slept the whole way!!! Once we got all of our things, and packed it into the car, we found our hotel and then headed back out to see some friends who moved back from China! It was fantastic. Then back to the hotel for some dinner. Saturday we relaxed in the morning and then headed to my friend Whitneys house for the evening. Their son Kaeden is almost a year old so although Liam did not keep up with him, they did get in a few kisses and stares! Sunday we got to spend with Jill and Wes and Lindsay and Ian as well. We ate tacos, watched soccer, walked to the park and even got to see Tadd's brother and his family. Monday we decided would be a chill day since the weekend was so busy. We just relaxed around the hotel and then popped by the mall for a little stroll. Then it was already time to go home. Once again, Liam slept on the plane ride home and we were successful in packing and checking everything. It was a great trip and once again Liam was spoiled by his auntie Jill with an adorable shirt and some beach toys! So glad we could visit San Diego!!! P.S. we did make it to the beach, but Liam did not get in the sand, so we will wait until next time for him to experience that first!

Another first that was not mentioned, was his first pool experience! I took him swimming with me on Saturday at my birthday pool party, and he loved it. He just chilled in the water and enjoyed himself...maybe swim lessons soon??

Liam also attended his very first baseball game in Stockton to watch his Uncle Dennis! We left one inning early and of course missed the best part! Dennis hit a home run and they won the game. Bummer that we missed it but glad that we were able to go and see him play. Also, Liam got his first baseball...signed by the one and only Dennis Raben!!!

Liam is the best. I love reliving every moment with him as if it were my first time as well! I am loving every minute of raising our perfect little boy!
