It’s official, BOTH my kids are making their way around the house and discovering the many places that have yet to be baby-proofed. It sure brings joy to my heart to see Liam walking around so proudly and Karis crawling from room to room. As of 2 weeks ago Liam’s physical therapist said that he no longer needs his walker! That was great news!! Along with all that movement comes more work for mommy. Just when I think it can’t get any harder juggling life with them sometimes… it does! And yet I love it! They sure love opening the drawers and cabinets in our kitchen. Liam doesn’t care so much about what is in the drawer as he does the sounds the drawer makes when he opens and closes it. That’s my little drummer boy for you! Jeremy has begun to put latches inside the cabinet doors. He has had one cabinet left to latch for a few days now and Liam knows it, and grabs the knob and opens and closes it over and over…. ahhhh! Anyway here is proof of their curiosity…
And here is video of Karis crawling a bit to get a ball. She stops and does the sign for “ball” (you touch your finger tips together like you’re holding a ball) which right now is her clapping her hands. Then she does the signal that she needs help by raising her hand, which she learned from Liam. She is really picking up signs quickly and probably because we do them all day long with Liam.
Here is a cute video of my little 10 month old baby girl eating her lunch. She is never quiet when she eats. It’s pretty funny! As long as she is hungry she is a pretty good eater. Otherwise she becomes very picky and won’t let me come close to her mouth. That’s a good thing I guess considering she is a good size. 😉 And it’s amazing that she just naturally brings food to her mouth and I didn’t have to got through hours of training to make her do that. Crazy! I love her!
We had the privilege of having our good friend Sara Harper come over to the hospital tonight and photograph Liam’s introduction to his baby sister. Click on the image below to see a slideshow of the very first family pictures we have (Erin’s parents were also in the room with us so we have some beautiful shots of Karis with her grandparents too). The slideshow will open in a new window. Enjoy – and thank-you Sara!
