Family Photos and update on life

So now that Liam is a grown up 9 months old. There will be some changes in this house. The doctor says there is nothing medically wrong with him. He is a healthy 19lbs 11oz and 28 in. tall. There is no reason why he should not be sleeping through the night... which he has NOT been doing. With a history of being up 5+ times a night, we decided we could no longer live like that. Our wonderful doctor suggested rearranging the furniture in the room. It has been two days and we have ALREADY seen a difference. Liam's crib is right up against my side of the bed. So now when he wakes up at night, he can stay in his crib and I can put my hands through the rails to reassure him that he is not alone. After about 15 minutes or so he falls asleep ontop of my hand. Since we started this, he has only been waking up 2-3 times a night! A miracle!!! and I expect as we continue this, it will only get better. Everything else is same old in the house. Flory has moved to evening shifts and I am still on the job hunt. And now that I will be getting more sleep at night, I will be ready to work and give it my 100%. Anyways, here are our new family photos... The big 9 month old boy!

My First Tatoo

and Mommy gave it to me!!! She says it will probably be my last as well. oh well, c'est la vie! I am just such a big fan of Covenant World Relief, and my toned arms, that I needed to combine these two passions and show them off to the world. Here they are...

Messy fun

Here is this crazy boy. He does this thing where he puts his arm(s) striaght into the air with a nice fist. and then he moves his wrist up and down. really funny and we are all mimicing him. This is the best shot we have of it...
Here is Liam with his growth chart all finished. Grandpa Anderson cut it out and Mommy and Aunt Heather painted. Liam loves the monkeys and giraffe!
Halloween is over but our pumpkin (which had only been painted) was still in great shape. So we decided to butcher it and make some pumpkin for eating and baking. Liam had A LOT of fun helping as the next few photos show...

(no seeds were eatten during the making of this blog post)
After making a big pumpkin mess, a boy needs to have a drink!

Happy Halloween!

I hope everyone had a Halloween as great as I did. Mommy let me paint my pumkin and then I went Trick-or-Treating. I was dressed up as Chicken Little for the big day. Someone even gave me oyster crackers and I just ate them all up! Can you believe it, I already have 5 teeth too! Three on the top and two on the bottom. I am just growing so fast! Here I am with Grandpa Anderson ready to go out Trick or Treating for the first time.
The next day Mommy and Daddy got all dressed up to go to a big Gala that was raising money for kids at the hospital. Mommy and Daddy had a lot of fun. Don't they look beautiful!
