Today the first blooms of daffodils opened. I know it may not seem like much, but since this is my first house, and my first yard, it is very special to me. Some of the daffodils were planted by Liam and I last fall. I have been showing Liam the progress of the plants as they grow these past few weeks. He said "yellow" while we were looking at the daffodil blossoms and tried to say "flower". The pea plants that we planted together last week have also grown quite a bunch. Here is Liam checking on them after he gave them a drink of water.
There have been so many new words in the past week. Liam is talking more and more and clearer and clearer. Over the weekend he started saying “bus” and “beep, beep”.
On Sunday afternoon, we had a few friends over for coffee and munchies. The toddlers had the run of the house...I think that every toy that Liam owns was out on the floor at one point! Liam did a great job sharing. He even gave Lindsey a back rub (daddy has been trying to teach Liam to give me back rubs)! Liam was only grumpy near the end when he got tired. Everyone thought it was really cute when he got his blankie out and laid down on the floor. We all had such a great time talking that I barely thought to take pictures. I think we will try to make this a monthly event.
Saturday was pretty uneventful. It was cold and rainy, so we went shopping for tools rather than working outside. As luck would have it, we happened upon a special event for children at Lowe’s called Build and Grow. Liam was too sleepy to try it, but they were nice enough to give us an ant farm kit, a tool belt, and a patch. How cool!
