I honestly cannot believe that my sweet little baby boy is 8 months old. That means that in 4 months, he will be celebrating his first birthday. That is so crazy to me! But, we sure are enjoying every second with him and he continues to make us laugh on a daily basis.
It has been such fun seeing his personality really come out. He really has a sense of humor and seems to be goofy like his parents. We had a wonderful first Christmas with our families and I will post about that next time.
This month has been full of fun and lots of new things for Liam. One of our biggest changes is we are MOBILE! He has been pulling up, getting on all fours, and rocking back and forth all month. But, starting the day before he turned 8 months old (yesterday), he figured out how to move those legs and he can crawl. So, he is moving around his playroom now :) He is also pulling to to a stand on anything he can get a good grip on! It seems like he has just taken this huge step in just a couple weeks.
This month at our church we participated in the baby dedication service. It was such a special time to gather with friends and family, all praying over our sweet baby. Liam was joined by a few of his little baby friends (Lilly, Kace, and Alyce). It was a special time for our family. He did great at the dedication and just sucked on my necklace the entire time. :)
We went to Bass Pro Shop to sit in Santa's lap. They had an awesome system there so you did not have to wait in line for very long. Not to mention Liam LOVED Bass pro which made his daddy extremely happy. Just a few days before santa Brad took him there for a daddy/son outing while I stayed home and got some things done. That is how we figured out how much he loved going. There are fish, ducks, waterfalls, and lots of fun things for a baby to check out. Our Santa was a really legit looking santa. But, when he smiled...he looked kinda creepy. Oh well! Liam loved him and did great :)
I still cannot believe he is 8 months old! We set up an email address for him when he was born so that we could email him pictures, videos, and just different stuff throughout his first couple years. We copied that commercial that we saw. It is turning out to be pretty cool. I email pictures I take during the day and videos. Brad emails him a message every Monday. Then we had my family send him emails as well just telling him what he means to them. I think he will think it is really cool one day!
This month has been quite a growth month as far as what he can do. Since he is now so mobile and pulling up on everything. But, the one thing that has not been fun is teething! Poor guy was running 102 fever on Christmas morning from his teeth! He has ups and downs, but I feel like he takes it in stride! This is a picture of him at Brad's parents house yesterday morning after battling with teeth all night! He cuddled up with his buggy for a nap :)
It has been an amazing month with our sweet boy! Cannot wait to see what the next one brings :)
