Hey ya'll! This one will be fast, because it's finally GORGEOUS outside and there's no time to write when you're digging out the stroller for the first big walk to the playground!
This week we added some frames to the house, a few adult decorative things that we intend on keeping (unbroken) and at his level. It's been...interesting. Liam likes to visit the pictures, pick them up, and talk to them. He had a different favorite picture everyday and would often kiss them.
We also LOVE the mirror. Especially when he feels like being testy and seeing if Mommy will in fact say no to pulling it off the wall every time or just once in a while. When he's feeling especially feisty, he'll shoot me a smirk, put his hand on it, and wait until he's sure I'm looking and running over before he yanks on it.
Ah, I look forward to those delightful twos coming my way.
I also put away the high chair and got a booster seat. He loved it immediately! He visits it during the day and often buckles and unbuckles the straps.
He loves his new placemat too. Liam will often take a bite, chew for a minute, then start roaring like a lion while pointing frantically at the picture. Like, LOOK it's STILL HERE! LION! ROAAAAAAAR!!!!!
Then, back to eating.
We love animals lately, and spend most of the day reading about or playing with them.
A little nap wakeup fun with the Littlest Man:
We returned to Grand Rapids to see Joanna Newsom, one of our favorites. She plays the harp and plucks the strings more like a bass than the traditional strumming, and it's really incredible how she manipulates her face and voice to make such interesting sounds.
I was also able to grab a bite with friends. I love watching Liam, Cosette, and Theo together.
On Saturday, it was Dylan's 22 birthday, so we all met for a little drink before his night started.
Totally. And look how he takes it like a man.
Nice job, bud. Nice job.
The next morning, it was my cousin Camille's wedding shower. It was vintage beautiful and really great to see everyone! I cannot wait for the wedding in May; it will break all of my wedding records for best of... everything!
Then the drive home. A sweet sweet six hour drive with a toddler. Liam usually does well, but this time he would only fall asleep if I was holding his little hand. For two hours, he clutched my finger like this. And if I managed to slide it out of his little paw, he stretched and searched in his sleep to get it back. So sweet.
I love that little boy. Speaking of, he's up! So, I'm off!
Much love, more next week!
