Little Boy

Monday, November 10th, 2003

I realized a couple of days ago that we no longer have a baby, we have a little boy. He's walking pretty much everywhere now. It's a drunken, stumbling sort of walking, but he's walking. Watching him got me to wondering - what motivates a baby to walk? I can ...

Here I Come Daddy!

Friday, October 17th, 2003

Liam was a walking little fool last night. There were several times when he took the initiative to let go of what or whoever he was holding onto and toddle forth to a new destination. Jen says that today he is going from sitting to standing without pulling up to ...

Hi

Thursday, October 16th, 2003

Liam is changing so much so fast, I feel if I don't write everyday then I'm already falling behind. Once a week or so has passed, the idea of writing everything that has happened just becomes overwhelming. If you've been reading this journal for any length of time this is ...

The boy is an eating machine. I honestly can't remember the last time he was actually full and refused food. Usually his plate just gets empty and we stop feeding him. We're teaching him baby sign language using a program we found at "kindersigns":http://www.kindersigns.com/index1.html. The first sign he learned, and ...

Liam’s First Birthday

Sunday, July 27th, 2003

Liam turned one last Friday. The most exciting thing for me was that he now gets to ride facing forward in his car seat. I was thinking he would be much happier being able to see us as we drove. Not the case. His first ride facing forward he had ...

Standing Tall

Thursday, July 24th, 2003

Liam started standing up last week. He's been pulling up to things for a long time before he even started to crawl. What he did the other day was stand up while holding on to me (I was lying on my back in bed) and then suddenly he let go. ...

First Haircut

Wednesday, July 16th, 2003

Liam got his first haircut a couple of weeks ago. It's amazing to look at pictures of before and after and compare how different he looks. He was really starting to look like quite the little ragamuffin. Now he looks like a little boy, practically all growed up. It's a ...

High Five

Tuesday, July 15th, 2003

It's been so long since I've written anything, I get exhausted just considering it. That's one reason it's been a month and a half since I posted. At first it was because I was recovering from surgery, but then the time between posts became so huge, and the belief that ...

If You’re Happy and You Know it

Wednesday, April 30th, 2003

Liam has started clapping his hands recently. It's so funny because he gets a big smile on his face when he does it, like he's really happy about something. When he does something and I clap and cheer at him, he will just stare at my hands as I clap ...

Ear Infection

Thursday, April 24th, 2003

Finally heard back from the wife. Liam has an ear infection and he's back on the Amoxicillin. Poor little guy. Then again, when I heard him in the background on the telephone, he sounded like he was having a grand old time. At what age do kids start faking sickness? ...
