Grandpa’s Visit and Lots of Videos

DSC_0001We had a visit from Grandpa Bob over the holiday, and there was much eating, drinking, and merry-making. Within an hour of picking him up the airport, Liam was calling him, “Papa!” With hardly much coaching at all. We celebrated Thanksgiving a day late with a simple ham steak, stove-top stuffing, corn, and cranberry from the can. Saturday we took Liam shopping for his birthday and Christmas, stocking up on lots of clothes, Curious George books (his favorite right now), and the best present ever, grandpa!! A tricycle! This fancy-pants model has an attachable handle at the back so we can push him around until he’s old enough to pedal himself. He can’t quite reach the pedals, but he loves being wheeled around the house! Sunday we took the train to Chinatown for burgers at Matchbox, yum! As usual, Liam sat at the window on the DSC_0003train yelling, “Choo choo!” at each passing train, and “Bye bye, choo choo” after it passed. Monday grandpa came to Itsy Bitsy yoga class to watch Liam show off his mad yoga skills. Liam hammed it up, marching around the room, going through TWO tunnels (a feat!), and clapping his little hands together at the end of class, “Ommmmm!” We finished the visit with a lunch at Piratz Tavern in Downtown Silver Spring, where Liam, true to form, ate about three bites of fish sticks, one french fry, and spent the rest of the time making us walk around the restaurant with him. For his age, I suppose that isn’t half bad. But eating out with him isn’t nearly as easy at it used to be.

Before we drove grandpa to the airport, I picked up some speakers for my computer, so I was able to go through some of the videos I’ve had sitting around (yay!). So here goes:

Liam on Halloween running through the leaves in our yard. Notice how much he’s jabbering these days.
Liam and Jeanie at a recent play date. Aren’t they so adorable?
Liam with his grandpa playing in the basement.

And if you have any trouble viewing these, they’re also on the baby site.

  1. He’s so cute. He’s really steady on his feet! Sorry about the speakers!
