As He Rounds The Bend

| 17 Comments | No TrackBacks

Liam is almost two years old.

And while he can whine and tantrum with the best of them, there is plenty to love about him, too.

Here's a taste:

1. Some of my favorite versions of words à la Liam:

'napeg' - napkin
'mugan' - music
'Mee-um' - Liam
'hijk Elmo' - h,i,j,k,l,m,n,o

2. Liam has picked up the word 'now'. Most of the time, it's pretty amusing, though I still try not to respond to him in a 'now' kind of way, as I don't want him to get in the habit. On the other hand, he's clear it's a demanding word.

3. He can also be super polite: he frequently will say "thank you, Liam" or "thank you, Daddy" to thank, oh, anyone for anything.

4. If he sees a car, truck or airplane, watch out for your ears. He's liable to tell you about it - with vigor.

5. If you want something to become his favorite, call it 'cozy'. Cozy slippers, cozy coat, cozy blanket ... whatever.

6. He loves rubbing his cheek against our cheeks.

7. He can count to two. He can say numbers higher than that, but he can actually identify two things and count them - one, two, two feet! I think that's cool.

8. He's got rhythm. Some who know me from workshop days may not believe my son capable, but his father was in show choir. This stuff is innate in him and it's really cool to watch him boogie - and keep time.

9. We've recently discovered that there is a whole host of songs that if we stop in the middle of them, he will quietly fill in the next word. Very cute.

10. He loves to sing. He sings all the time - totally random stuff. I know it's a normal phase or whatever, but it is so much fun to watch him do it. And he does it totally unabashedly, as if no one were paying attention to him. It's almost as he zones out while he does it.

I've hit ten. That's enough for right now. If we ever upload photos again, I'll share them.

I repeat what I say about Liam again "to know Liam is to want one!" He is definitely loveable and he is also spoiled as are all first children to young parents. This is also, for now, very cute too. Like when he doesn't want anyone, especially his kid friends, to get into his peek a boo hiding place cupboard in the kitchen.

I love your Liam stories, Mara.

And I love that he counts to two, and can dance and loves to sing.

Petit a petit l'oiseau fait son nid. Tres heureux de savoir que Liam fait deja de tel progres.

love him!
love his parents too

Everything I hear and read about Liam is just too adorable for words. Thanks so much for sharing, I'd love to spend more time with him some day. :-)

This post is classic! I have to agree with papa that to know Liam is to want one...too friggin' adorable. I think my favorite part is how he fills in the last word of a stopped song...quietly. And counting to two! lol! only kids can turn your preconceived ideas upside down. Thank God for them!

I’ve struggled with what exactly to do on my Twitter account. One may think about it a hybrid… I post loads about net design, advertising and small business. Most likely will add extra private things within the future.

Hello, I enjoy you blog. I'm glad Bing showed it the serps. I was able to get the facts I was searching so badly for hours now.Thank You so much for this really good post. Have a good day.

Hands down, Apple's app store wins by a mile. It's a huge selection of all sorts of apps vs a rather sad selection of a handful for Zune. Microsoft has plans, especially in the realm of games, but I'm not sure I'd want to bet on the future if this aspect is important to you. The iPod is a much better choice in that case.

Sorry for the huge review, but I'm really loving the new Zune, and hope this, as well as the excellent reviews some other people have written, will help you decide if it's the right choice for you.

good stuff, reminds me of my brother in florida
