Eleven Months!

Time continues to creep up quicker and quicker. Our little boy is now 11 months old with a lot of crazy and exciting changes.
  • He is getting closer and closer to walking. He has taken three or four steps together although it always seems to happen when he is distracted and wanting something. 
  • He is starting to recognize many words now - including hot, bye-bye, kiss, ball, sister, mom, dad, yucky, no, more, all done. 
  • He loves to give kisses to people and wave hello and good bye to people. 
  • He is getting very good at remembering things - if you say a cupboard is yucky, every time he goes back into the kitchen he will point to it and make his yucky sound. If you tell him something is hot, he point to it over and over and make his hot sign. 
  •  He loves the cats and will chase them all over the house. He will crawl around the house calling them and looking for them until he finds them hidden under the bed - ha!
  • He is obsessed with putting things into other things. Blocks into a house, animals into his ark, shapes into buckets - whatever! Callie has taken advantage of this quite a bit, she puts her toys in front of him that need to be cleaned up and let him 'play' and put them away for her. 
  • He is a very picky eater! Some of his favorites include lasagna, meatballs, sausage, fruit, pancakes and cheese. He truly dislikes eggs, lunch meat, oatmeal, and pretty much any vegetable. His lunches pretty much always consist of cheese and fruit with some sort of hidden vegetable. 
  • He has become a great napper! Right now he is still taking 2 naps and sleeps hard. He is good at napping pretty much anywhere - which comes in handy as he is dragged around to different places quite a bit. 
Liam loves to help me do the dishes. He is helping me empty the clean dishes..... 

And then he went ahead and reloaded it for me....

He loves looking out the window. He just sits there and waves to all the cars as they drive by. 

Happy, happy boy when he wakes up.

We've had some nice sunny (cold) days that has allowed us to enjoy some park time. Liam is thrilled that he doesn't always have to be in the stroller. 

Callie is just thrilled to have someone extra to play with. 

And on our rainy days we headed to the local indoor playground....

Enjoying the water balloon pad. 

Building some super cool towers (just to knock them back over)

For this meal, apparently the plate was more exciting than the food. 

Had a great day at the zoo.....

I can' believe thanksgiving is right around the corner! This year has already started off quickly and continues to snowball even quicker. We had a blast over halloween, the kids enjoyed do don't pumpkins, challenging our carving skills, trick or treating with friends and callie even did her first haunted house (although I'm not sure she will do another one in a long time. Ha!).
We hit up the pumpkin patch on a beautiful (very cold) day. The kiddos played in corn, completed the maze, and tried to find the biggest pumpkins they could find.

 The kiddos pumpkins definitely show each of their personalities. Liam stuck with a truck this year and callie wanted a witch with her cat....she got a cat :)
 Liam dressed up as a dinosaur this year (thank you grandma for the amazing costume) and callie was a cheetah. We went trick or treating on Saturday with
some very good friends are Saturday (we weren't
sure how long they would make it on halloween) .

Husky Game

UW recently had a Girl Scout night at one of the Husky games. Preston was out hunting so I took the kiddos by myself (and met Sarah and Rey there). It went surprisingly well - especially since the game ended up being a 7:30 pm game. Luckily Liam napped the whole way there and was able to rally when it was game time. Callie's highlights of the game was being there with her cousins, the cheerleaders, and the marching band. She wasn't too interested in the football aspect. 
Although the stadium was not loud, Liam insisted on wearing headphones. He didn't take them off once and even fell asleep with them on in the car. 

Enthralled with the marching band
Hopefully some future Huskies!

Summer Fun

As I'm getting ready to post this, I realize that I was very bad about taking pictures this summer. None of these pictures capture all of the fun that we had. We hiked, camped, played, and stayed as busy as possible. 
Liam loves his sister so much!
Using a log as a boat - trying his best not to get wet :)
Playground fun
We spent a lot of this summer at the rock climbing gym. They both seem to love it.
Callie married Captain America this summer
This summer we tried the water park down the hill from us with some friends. I was holding off on going because I wasn't sure how I would be able to watch both kiddos and feel that they are safe but it ended up being so much fun and they kids did fabulous. 

One of the hikes we did this summer was to the natural water slides. The kids spent HOURS in the freezing cold water.
