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.....

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!

Christmas tree hunting

Getting our Christmas tree is always a fun adventure. We headed up to the cabin for the weekend and explored the woods to find "the perfect Christmas tree". While we were there, we enjoyed every moment of being together and not having any work or obligations. We explored the woods, the beach and everything in between. 
Ok....seriously....just one cute family picture please! Can we all just smile at the same time once?!
I sure love my crew
We found the perfect tree and everyone had to take turns cutting it down with the saw.

We tried to get a cute Christmas card picture this weekend with very little luck. My kiddos wanted nothing to do with it and so we gave up :) These ended up being some of my favorites:

Sun River 2018

For mid winter break, we headed up to Sun River for the week. As always, it did not disappoint! The kids had a blast spending the week with Grandma and Grandpa, all their cousins, skiing, and playing in the snow. This year we started with no snow on the ground and ended with a blizzard that made driving home very tricky. Liam stayed home with Grandma while Callie and I skied. Although it is always hard to be left behind, he loves his Grandma so much and they had an absolute blast together. I'm also realizing that she took all the pictures so I have very few with her...major bummer!

We celebrated these 2 boys on this trip. 
When there is this many kids, you not only take over the whole run but there it is also very difficult to figure out which way to go....

Grandpa and his gang
Pretty soon we won't all fit on one couch.
Unfortunately our sister/dad ski day did not go as planned. Sarah took a spill the day before and was not able to ski with us for the rest of the trip
