9: Easter Egg Hunt at the Goeke's Liam enjoyed taking the eggs out of the basket rather than putting them in.
10: 14 Months Old | A Springtime Walk
11: Peek-a-boo! | Liam is our little helper. He must always be in the middle of the the action and doing whatever we are doing. He also stays busy taking things apart and figuring out how things work. He likes building blocks, push cars and balls too. He is starting to eat more table food but doesn't care much for it. He takes two 2 hour naps daily and sleeps well at night. | "UP!, UP!"
12: This month Liam took his first steps while daddy was out of town for work. When daddy got home, he walked all the way across the room and was a master walker in a matter of days. His vocabulary is constantly expanding and he will repeat any words you ask him to. He also has a new best friend, Bear that he must take everywhere; on walks, out to the grocery, at the table to eat and certainly to bed.

He is a curious little boy and tags along with daddy fixing things and helping in the yard. Whatever daddy does, he wants to do too.
20: Blueberry Picking | Road Trip Nap | Waiting to go to the beach | Summer Vacation to South Haven, MI
21: This summer, we took a vacation to South Haven, MI which is on the west coast of Lake Michigan and only about 5 hours from home. We spent most of our days lounging on the beach. Liam thoroughly enjoyed our wagon walks to the beach and playing endlessly in the sand as well as our bike rides around town seeing the sites.

30: Liam's 1st Train Set | Thomas the Train | Liam now knows more words than we can count but we most frequently hear "help", "ut-oh", "yes", "no", "hi-ya" , "bye" and "I love you". He is turning into a very sweet boy with an ornery streak. He sleeps well through the night but is always up by 6:30AM and takes one nap after lunch. He is a very picky eater with his favorite foods being chicken nuggets, french fries, rice, frozen vegetables and apples. It is rare when he ventures away from these things and tries something new.

48: Happy New Year! | "Hot!" Out to eat at Sake-a Hibachi Grill restaurant | Cheese! | This month, Liam found out he is getting a baby sister in the Spring. He doesn't really know what that means yet, but mommy and daddy are excited! Liam now says phrases like "Mommy do it", "oh, what happened?", "Daddy at work" & "I a mess". He is a very good communicator. He loves to watch Toy Story and Curious George on TV. He is usually too busy to sit down and read books these days but he likes to color and play with all his new toys from Christmas | 22 Months Old
50: 23 Months Old | playing games on IPad | playing in "bean sandbox"
51: At almost 2, we couldn't be any more proud of our little man. He is growing so fast and becoming so smart, we often wonder what happened to our little baby boy. He is such a joy to be around and has brought so much happiness to our lives. It is hard to imagine what life was like before him (boring, I assume). We are looking forward to all the milestones Liam will achieve in the coming year and just hope we can keep up with him. Mommy and Daddy love you sooooo much Liam!!! xoxo
