It seems like just yesterday that Liam turned one, but it was really a whole year ago. How does that happen? I have loved watching Liam grow this past year. He is just so delightful. He is always laughing and loves to snuggle. He runs away from me when I try to tickle him and then he backs up again to give me another chance. Oh this kid… he’s just wonderful. And now he’s two.
When Liam stumbled on his way back around to watch his cars and trucks go down the slide, he just started laughing.
After cake, we opened presents. Claire disappeared for a little while and came back with a pillowcase. She said she had rummaged through her closet to find some toys for Liam. I think she did a great job choosing. Here’s Liam’s reaction to the Curious George she gave him.
And I love Claire’s reaction to his reaction. Those two make such a great pair. I gave Liam a little Fisher-Price piggy. It’s a toy that Penny Lane loved when she was his age. Liam liked it, too. He made the sign for pig.
Liam got a water and sand play set, and since it was still so beautiful outside, Izzy put it together right away. Liam loved playing with it.
Claire has figured out a way to hook up Liam’s swing to hers so that she can swing along with him. I love this picture of both of them with their tongues hanging out. I can’t wait to see how they both grow up.
