Speaking of parenting, I was thinking that it’s been a while since I’ve updated you guys on the life of this little goose:
Liam is 18 months old now, and couldn’t be busier! Here are some of his favorite activities these days.
“Driving” the car and doing his “Strong Man”
Liam is all boy. He LOVES cars, trucks, and lawn mowers, and thinks he’s big stuff when he’s sitting in the driver’s seat. We really need to get him a Little Tyke car. He would sit in it for hours.
This kid looks like he will literally pop a vein in his neck when he shows us his “strong man”. It’s so funny and we really don’t know where he got it from. We’ve got some videos of his trick, but I haven’t been able to successfully load videos to WordPress for free.
Running around the house after his bath
It never fails, Super Nakey Boy shows up after every bath. With his towel as a cape, he runs through the house with so much energy! I realize this is common for kids his age, but it’s still cute. Also, note the belly–no wonder it throws off his center of gravity. 😉
Pulling clothes out of my dresser and “helping” me fold laundry
This is probably one of the best (and worst) things about kids. They like to help with everything. And while it can sometimes make frustrate my plans to get things done, it’s definitely a good reminder to find joy in the little things.
Playing with toys…and his pet
Though some of his favorite toys are not toys at all, Liam still loves to play with books, puzzles, his play drum, dupo blocks, and stuffed animals.
SAD NEWS: Lola hasn’t been home in a month. She is an indoor/outdoor cat and has disappeared once before but came home on her own after a week. She disappeared this time when we were out of town overnight. I am so sad, and Liam misses his buddy, but I’ve realized there is only so much you can do to control a cat that roams the outdoors. I’d like to think she is being fed and cared for by a sweet, lonely lady who disregards Lola’s collar and tag. This is the last picture we have of them together–sweet even though Liam doesn’t look too happy.
Another fun milestone. It amazes me how he can make such a mess, but he sure does love the challenge! He’s also really interested in trying to reach water from the fridge with his little cup (just goes to show you, they’re always watching you).
He’s also really been adding to his vocabulary lately. Oddly enough, he has a slight obsession with letters, particularly “o”.
One thing is for sure, life is fun for a toddler!
