Taken On: 8/13/2013

10 Months

Weighing in at: 18.8 lbs

Length: 29 1/4 inches

Favorite Food: Not too much A.R. Enfamil now.  Our little munchkin really enjoys the homemade food that  mommy and daddy make.  Right now, he really likes chicken, strawberries, peaches, and still loves those sweet potatoes.  We also give him frozen watermelon cubes for his uncomfortable teething moments.

Words: Still mama, dada, and more cooing and babbling.  He does this a lot when he opens his books.

Nicknames: My little love buggy bug, love bug, munchkin, and Bulldog one zero.  Tim gave Liam this nickname because he crawls like a bulldog. And the one zero stands for 10 months.  Good one Tim!

Liam’s 3 Top Picks: Hardcover books, wooden alphabet blocks, and his FunKeys

Baby Got Skills:   Liam has reached a total of 12 steps!!  He’s moving quick and we can’t keep up.  He holds onto his toys and other objects around the house.  He likes to play tug-a-war sometimes.  He claps his hands and pulls himself up on furniture, stands up alone,  picks up very small objects, and drinks his sippy cup solo.  Annnd he loves to open drawers!!  Especially the the draw in the kitchen that has all the zip lock bags.  Those always end up on the floor.

Enjoys: Sneaking up the stairs, playing tug-a-war with Cookie and her toy rope, being outside, splashing in the water, playing in the kitchen- as soon as he hears us open the dishwasher he comes bulldoging in and hangs out on the rack.  Not sure why, but he loves it!

Liam’s First Thanksgiving

This year was my first Thanksgiving in California.  Usually I fly back home to Texas to visit the family, but since our bundle of joy is too young to travel, we decided to spend the holiday at Tim’s mom’s house in Ventura.  I made a cranberry orange cake and a broccoli cheese casserole.   First time I’ve EVER made something for Thanksgiving.  Don’t judge.  I am not Betty Crocker and I still, till this day, don’t know how to make a damn turkey.  I’ll leave that up to my husband for the following turkey days ;).

It’s Movember….hence the beard.

My first broccoli cheese casserole.  I still think my aunt Christina makes is waaaay better.


Liam, not quite interested in football just yet.

My first cranberry orange bread.  Actually, this was my second attempt.  The night before was the first trial run.  It didn’t turn out good, so I woke up really early Thanksgiving morning and searched for another recipe.  This one was the winner!! It’s probably because it asks for buttermilk and 6 tablespoons of butter, the ingredients that make all desserts taste better.

Tim’s ma, Sharon
