look what i found

and in the nick of time too. Liam not only found his hand during Gee and Gramp’s visit last weekend, but also made huge improvements in his tummy time. I think they’ll need to visit more often…

Our little guy had his 2 month check up, complete with 3 shots and a dose of oral vaccine (a total of 5 vaccinations) on Tuesday. He was a bit crabby for a day or so after, as evidenced by the photo below.

nom, nom, nom
nom, nom, nom
ouch!
ouch!

 The doctor was very impressed with our superbaby. Liam weighed in at 12 pounds 3 ounces (!) and showed off his new tummy time skills. When Dr. S. laid him on his belly, he immediately pushed all the way up onto his hands, lifted his head, and grinned at her. She was a bit shocked (as was I – I had only seen him push up to his elbows). He may be a bit of a flirt. Where could that come from?

Sorry, Carol Anne, for the 2 week absence of posts. B and I have come to an agreement for the SD reader’s home when not in use, so it won’t happen again.

It was chilly down here last week, but Liam and I braved the weather and headed out for a walk. Thanks, Jos, for the cozy carseat cover. We considered it practice for our upcoming trip to PA…

(would have posted this last week, but misplaced my SD card reader. oops.)

Who’d have guessed that the Eagles would be playing in the NFC Championship Game this season?  Not me, that’s for sure. Liam wasn’t worried though.

Wake me when it's time for the Superbowl.

 Liam’s stylish Eagles gear was made by boiling a white onsie in RIT dark green dye and ironing on some letters purchased at WalMart.  The Eagles actually make the superbowl, we’ll consider buying him a jersey…

tummy time

So, Liam is 5 weeks old today. The changes are staggering. He’s so alert and now shows interest in objects as well as people. We have big fun on the play mat every day and not so much fun during tummy time.

As usual, more pics in his album.
