Liam was away from Mommy and Daddy for an entire weekend earlier this month! We missed him like crazy, but it was nice to get away to see our good friends, Matt and Kelly, get married outside of Philadelphia! Congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs! So honored to be part of your big day!!
Soon, Liam will have more friends than he knows what to do with! We have 3 sets of friends who are expecting their first child in November! We can't wait to meet the little people, and are SO happy that our friends will now get to experience the same joy we have experienced for the past 8 months!
(Note the Puff stuck in his hair)
Liam is 8 months old today! He now has 4 teeth (at least last time I checked). It seems like he's cutting them left and right – which makes for some crankiness, rough nights, and post-nasal drip. So glad we don't remember teething! It has got to be a horrible experience!
William also is now babbling a lot and focusing on Ma, Ba, Bo, Wa, Wo, Fa… and others. He's working on quite the vocabulary and we're trying to get him to say some "D" sounds, but he's not having it! Sorry, Dad! He also goes into random giggle attacks – usually induced by the dog. For some reason, Diablo is just HYSTERICAL! Liam now claps and waves too! It's sooo cute! We need to get it on video for sure. The waving still needs a little work, but he's now clapping all.the.time.
Liam is still far from interested in crawling. Basically, any time he's on his belly, he flips to his back immediately. He has, however, been very into standing by himself. He has been standing at the coffee table or holding on to Mom's knees (or playing with drawstrings on her sweat pants).
We often wonder if he'll skip the crawling stage all together.
Going shopping with Mom!
You can see 3 of his teefies!
(…and, yes, teefies, is the technical term.
"Toofers" is also acceptable.)
