Awesome Things Liam Says: Election Edition

*Driving past some people waving Ron Paul signs*

Liam: "What are those people doing?"
Me: "Well, they have signs that say Ron Paul. He wants to be president and those people are letting everyone know how much they like him."
Liam: "Do you like him?"
Me: "I like Obama better."
Liam: "I like George Washington."

The Livi Show

Yes, I am aware that I have another child. And he is very cute and I still adore/love him, but I need to get all of these videos of the second child out because she is in that fantastic stage where everything (sans breakdowns) that she does is adorable and cute and yummy and ADORABLE. Chris and I were just talking this weekend that it seems like she started getting older out of nowhere. So here is just a teeny glimpse of some of the ADORABLENESS that is Livi. SN: Please excuse the nasty stream of snot careening down her face in the first video. A bit of a cold that I can't seem to catch up with.

Just Another Weekend

It's about 7 am when I feel the warm, morning breath from Liam on my face whisper "Mommy- it's daytime. Time to wake up." Not long after we hear Livi stirring so we bring them both into bed and hand them our phones as entertainment so we can steal a few more brief moments in our cozy bed.  Soon Chris will have to get up to go to work as he does a couple of Saturdays out of the month and I will lazily drag myself into the playroom while the coffee brews. Livi can be found by the trail of books she always leaves in her wake and Liam will be inevitably be found with some sort of army guy/ superhero/ Star Wars character or a mixture thereof.

Rinse. Repeat.  Rinse. Repeat. Sound boring? It's not. :)

Awesome Things Liam Says

Liam: "You love coffee,huh?"
Me: " I do. Coffee is my favorite."
Liam: "You love wine and coffee. They are both your favorite. You drink it all the time. "

Cage-free and Free Range

I've held out for so long with all the big kid things that are attached to becoming 2. She still uses her pacifier at bedtime, still in diapers and, until recently, was sleeping in her crib. The only reason I have given into this step was because a friend of mine is moving and was giving away her son's bed. Livi is ready for everything (except maybe giving up that damned pacifier), but it's been a combination of laziness and not wanting to let go that has held me back.  And so here we are, one step closer to losing my baby. Her birthday is next month so I suppose I should get on those other things, but I don't wannnnaaaaa.  And hello, how unfair is it that this toddler who could give a crap has perfect morning hair right after opening her eyes? I will tell you.. not fair AT ALL!

Who Says Kids Are Hard to Entertain?

Happy New Year

2011 turned out to be a pretty fantastic year for us. New job, new house, new school. Not sure about 2012, but if it's anything like last year we're in good shape. So Happy New Year everyone. We love you all to pieces.
