This month got away from me.  It was busy, and I was tired.  We started the month with a visit from my sister, which was amazing.  Except for the part where her nephew vomited all over her…and then on our friend Tiffany…and basically through our entire house.  The rest, though, was pretty awesome.

Liam has been growing up like mad.  He is crawling everywhere, does baby yoga all the time, and likes to walk up and down the length of furniture.  He throws balls, and opens the toilet lid.  He climbs as of this weekend.  The kid is fearless.  He attempted to do a nosedive off a plastic container that’s about a foot and a half tall….but I caught him before he could get too far.  He kissed a little girl who’s about three weeks older than him.  He wants to walk like she does, but he can’t quite figure it out.  He is getting teeth…he has two that are in, and two that are coming in. 

We had Mariah’s wedding…..which has certainly been a long-awaited event.  It was a great weekend, and we all had a blast.  It was so nice to be home, to be with old friends, and people who were a part of my childhood…like Mariah’s entire family.

We’ve been prepping for Liam’s birthday party—this weekend.  I am an overplanner for parties….but I am so excited for this one.  It’s ridiculous how much effort I’m putting into a one year old’s party….but I kind of feel like we need it.  Liam’s birth was rough…and a lot of stuff has happened over this year that has been difficult…excruciating even…but God has been so faithful to us, providing what we need, and just showing up in a big way this year….and I want to celebrate.  And I think Liam’s grandparents feel the same way :)
