Aquarium

My favorite Christmas gift this year was a pair of tickets to the Georgia Aquarium from James. I have wanted to go since it opened, and when we found out we were pregnant, I was so excited about going with the baby. Liam was the perfect age - awake and alert enough to really appreciate all that was going on around him, yet small enough to carry or push comfortably in the stroller.

He loved the coral reef and whale shark exhibits the best - lots of color and movement. He stood at the glass wall for 30 minutes just watching the huge fish go by. We all had a great time!

Christmas and New Year

Liam's first Christmas morning was fun...he actually was interested in his toys more than the paper. He was spoiled rotten being the only grandbaby on both sides and the only nephew to my two sisters!

And here he is on New Year's Day morning wearing Natalie's shoes after the festivities at our house the night before. I was nervous that he wouldn't sleep at all, especially with a house full of noise and fireworks going off throughout the entire neighborhood. We put him to bed at 7:00 that evening and he didn't wake up AT ALL until 7:00 the next morning! We even checked on him a few times to make sure he was okay, he was so quiet. He was his normal cheerful self the next morning!

Crawling!!!

Liam decided to give us the wonderful gift of his crawling about a week before Christmas! He's SO fast now...more on that later...but here he is on the first day he decided that crawling was more efficient than rolling everywhere:

Back in business!

I can't believe it's been two whole months since my last post! I promise to be better - Christmas this year was a complete blur! So much has happened and Liam has gotten so big...here are a few highlights in the next few posts.

We went to visit James's great aunt Rudy (James's mom's aunt and Liam's great, great aunt) before Christmas. She's a spunky little lady and it was a real treat to introduce Liam to her!
