Our First Thanksgiving at Home

Not only was it Liam's first Thanksgiving, but it was our first thanksgiving at home. We had so much fun. I did a ton of cooking on Wednesday and Grandma and Grandpa took care of Liam. Let me tell you, it was not hard to get them to babysit! Thursday Great Grandma Mary, Grandma Nancy, Aunt Mikki, Uncle Dan and some of our cousins, Ellie, Nathan and Jordan came up to join us.
We had a great time talking, laughing, playing games and chowing down! Liam was, of course, the main event as all babies usually are. He was so calm and sweet all day. God sure gave us a wonderful kid.
I always look forward to spending time with family and I love to be home, so this thanksgiving was my all time favorite. I felt so blessed. We missed my brother Jeff and his girlfriend Christine, but they came up for a visit the day after thanksgiving. Some other regulars that were missed were my cousin Aaron and my Uncle John and Aunt Karen.
Needless to say we have so much to be thankful for, but this year I was overwhelmed with thankfulness. There is nothing like your first few holidays with a new little baby. He makes everything seem so much more colorful.

Bath Time

Liam is actually starting to enjoy his baths! Either that or he is really into cleanliness, and I don't think that's it or he would be potty trained by now. Here are a few videos for proof.

Different cries for different times

Nina has identified that Liam has 3 different cries.
This is the angry cry.
He also has a cry for pain and one for hunger.

Liam's Family and Friends

Liam was so glad Grandpa came to hang out. Nina was so glad he came to cook and to wash bottles...and to hang out...

Grandma and Liam are both very good nappers.

Great Grandma had been waiting for this for a very long time!

I think Grandma Nancy is certainly in the running for who will spoil Liam the most.

If you want to hold Liam you will have to fight Papa for it!

Nana loves her Liam

Learning to love floor and tummy time

Uncle Jeff came for a short visit and promises to buy Liam his first generous!

We love our best buddies Renee, Mark and Merritt. Will Liam ever catch up to Merritt's size?

Liam's first date. That Johanna Allen is quite a looker, huh?

Boys always say the wrong thing!

Going for a walk with Merritt in their matching strollers.

Holy Cow!
