Liam has made quite a journey. He has officially been on the outside, as long as he's been on the inside. You might want to get technical with us...because he was inside of me for 42 weeks..but let's just go with 9 months in and out. It works better for our fragile brains.
Liam is fantastic, a spitfire of a little boy. Ooooh that boy has some personality. He yells an awful lot, when he doesn't like something your poor ears will know. He also resorts to hitting and scratching in times of excitement or anger. That, we have to work on.
Hmm. Tricks. Liam does a lot of tricks! He started saying "uh Oh", and he says, "What" too. If you ask him to say Ma Ma, he looks at you and smiles and in the exact tone repeats "DA DA!" It's hilarious...for a little while. But I really just want him to say Ma Ma again! He only does it when he's upset, and I hear that's quite common for babies!
He is cruising along furniture. He can stand for 10 to 20 seconds by himself. He thinks that everything is his and even with an entire living room full of toys, he loves electronics and small things the best. Being outside is a Godsend, and the pool - oh water is Liam's best friend!
We are headed back to PT and OT, his neurologist thinks that it would be best to help with the weakness on his right side. So we're not too thrilled to be jumping back into that, but we will do anything for Liam. He will love it, he loves the teachers at LIFE and he loves the attention. Oh..boy..does he love the attention. :)
What's up next for us? Well, we will be enjoying Liam's first summer and start to plan his first birthday bash. Which I am soooo excited to start planning for him. I really want to celebrate his first year of life giving what a miracle he is and all it took to get here. :)
Until next time...
