First of all, I need to brag about my big boy who eats with forks. He is trying so hard to get it. Sometimes, he has to pull the bites off the fork and put them in his mouth.
Here is Liam last weekend, sitting in a diaper box and drinking from his sippy.
This weekend was perfect. The weather was nice. We were able to open the windows and let the fresh air in. Mike went flying Saturday morning. Liam and I hit a few yard sales and went to the library to play. Liam finally realized there's a tarantula in the tank with the cool lamp. He tried to bang the fish tank. This lead me to believe that there is a special circle of hell in which souls become library tank fish. Those poor fish. Mike and I put Liam in his car seat for his nap and headed down to Jamestown. We sat at Beaver Tail and watched the water while Liam slept. How lucky are we that this is twenty minutes from our house?
We stopped at an awesome playground. Liam had so much fun. We headed home and stopped at another spot of the bay for lunch. I love these weekends because the weather is perfect and the tourists haven't arrived. Parking and crowds aren't an issue. We didn't even have to wait for a table to eat our sandwiches outside.
We walked by the boat dock and made friends with a dog. It was just such a perfect day. I love taking Liam on adventures.
Tonight, we discovered another joy of having a toddler: sidewalk chalk. Once he got the hang of it, he was hooked.
He tried to color the dog.
Jake did not want to be colored. Of course, Mike made an airplane. Liam helped him color it in.
We had to stop to look at each plane as it flew over. If having Mike for a dad didn't ensure that Liam would love airplanes, living three blocks from the airport confirmed it. He stops whatever he is doing, looks up, points, and asks "What's that?" He is his father's son. That is a good thing.
Eventually, Liam decided he was done playing outside.
As I am writing, Liam is stacking his blocks up and making a tower. It seems like he will randomly grow a month in a week. This was one of those week.
