Aaaaand here are some captured memories of our sweet monchhichi over the past several months... My oh my how time does fly when you are having fun! And forgive me, I've spent hours (literally) on uploading these photos, and I do not have the energy to now organize them to be in sequential order. Ha.
Christmas parade in La Jolla with friends
Liam and Wyatt... BFFs
Grandma and Grampy spoiled us three with a winter holiday in Maui. Oh my, what fun we had! Liam fell in love with the water. Didn't fall too far from the tree, that boy.
Love the tummy rolls
You say what?!
Liam enjoyed the whales from inside the boat
Cheeseburger in Paradise
I love the water and my Grampy!
Happy baby indeed
Half smile, half snarl :)

Grandma, you're so funny!
I love my Nami!

Best grandpas ever!
Best grandmas ever!

All grown up in his tie!

Liam is not happy about leaving Catalina Island after a great holiday there with Grandma and Grampy. Although when I told him we were going home to his daddy he perked up right away :)

Reading stories with Nami
Watch how I can chew my cup, Nami!
...and my lid!
Watch how high I can swing, Nami!
Just chatting with Pops
Oh boy, we get to read together!
Grandma, you are so funny!
Oh my. I think less than a teaspoon made it into his mouth.
First time to the little dog park. It was a hit, to say the least :)
I love swings!
And back to Hawaii, hiking with uncle Lukey
Loves to sing, he does

I love you auntie Leann!
Again, photos are not in order (boo.) Here is Liam on our flight from Ontario to Seattle for the Christmas holiday. The one sure way to entertain him? Read to him, over, and over, and over...

This makes me laugh out loud every time :)
Happy 30th birthday to my best friend. How blessed Liam and I are to be yours.

This water drain was by FAR the highlight for Liam. Water, in motion, is quite possible the most exciting thing to watch.
Grandma can you please hold me here all day? I love this drain so much.
