Here is a picture of Liam playing with his Cariboo from the Calgary Zoo! He absolutely loves the antlers!!! I love the look he is giving it...like a stare down! "You talkin' to me?"

I think Ian must get a kick out of Zephyr sleeping on me like I am her own personal pillow. I have vague memories of this picture being taken, but didn't really know about it until I looked at the pictures on the camera today....and there it was. Zephyr says, "Hands off, Ian!"
Here is Ian home from work reading his mail with Liam on his lap!
Liam has finally figured out how to sit comfortably in his Bumbo seat. Look at those chubby arms!! And to think I was worried that he was going to be a scrawny baby! I wonder if this will be Liam's trademark look (his blue steele) and once he is in school, we will have this look over and over again every year with his school pictures! Let's hope there is no drool then, though!!

These are my cousin Leslies beautiful children: Ben, Adam, Matthew and the new baby Joel. They are so adorable! Ian and I got to meet them last summer when we visited Ireland. Leslie and I were both pregnant at the time!! (Although I was only 9 weeks at the time and she was already 7 months along!). Ian says he sees a family resemblance between Liam and the boys...do you?!

Here is Liam in some more cute outfits. I love this lion tshirt! And the stripey top outfit is from my mom's friend Fiona and her daughters.
Yes, folks. That is Liam's blood all over his diaper change table and soaking through his little socks!! You can imagine the fright I got when I looked down at his feet to see blood everywhere! So as it turns out, by my deductive logic, Liam got rug burn on the outsides of both his little baby pinky toes. How? The Jolly Jumper!! We had it set up at my parent's house, but both door ways had hardwood meeting carpet. I took his socks off so that he would have more traction on the wood, but didn't even consider that he could get rug burn!! The reason he was bleeding all over the place in the picture above was because he had just taken a bath and the scabs had fallen off. Poor little guy!! Don't worry. We expect a full recovery!
I love my little boy!! Here we are at Beacon Hill park. This picture was taken by our friend Jen. Liam is wearing Jen's son Zach's hat!! Too cute!

Finally, Nathan and Liam meet!! How cool is it that Ian and Josh, best friends from forever ago, would have sons just weeks apart?! Little mini-mes for the both of them! The boys were fast friends. Here is Liam grabbing on to Nathan's overalls. Promptly after this, Nathan was video taped "fish-hooking" Liam!! Too cute!
What can be cuter than two proud Papas and their boys at the Zoo? We sure do love these guys!! Pamela and I are some lucky ladies. Look at these strapping husbands of ours and our ridiculously good looking baby boys!!!
Here Liam and Nathan are at their very first meeting. How cute are they!! I love how Nathan's got his hand all up in Liam's face! He's all over the place! I can hardly wait for Liam to reach all those milestones, too! Seeing Nathan has made me very excited for what is to come! Such personality!!! We miss everyone already!

Wow, I have lots of stuff to post from our trip to Calgary, but I guess I will start with this picture of Liam. I love this picture!!! He fell asleep in his umbroller while out on a walk in Nose Hill Park with Grandma and Grandpa Christie. More pictures to follow, but I should get to bed before it becomes tomorrow!!
Liam and I are still in Calgary for the time being and enjoying every minute with Grandma and Grandpa Christie. Here is Liam and I walking in the kitchen. He is such a show-off for Grandma!!

Or at least that is what I could have called this blog before little Liam came along. If Zephyr had her way, it still would be!! This is what I wear to bed at night. Like a coon skin cap. Keeps my head warm!
Apparently this morning, Zephyr thought she would assist me in blocking out either Ian or the morning light. Not sure which! Awwe. She loves me (even thought I neglect her in favour of Liam on a daily basis!) Is it just me, or is her tail slightly reminiscent of a tentacle? Eww. Creepy! Thank goodness she doesn't have suction cups!! (For those who don't know, I have an octopus phobia because of the tentacles with suction cups)

Liam and I went to the Juan de Fuca rec center with Karl, Melissa and Kalina for a swim in the awesome kiddie pool they have there. It was Kalina's first time in the pool!! She did so well and even drank some of the water! Liam was impressed! Here are Karl, Kalina, Liam and I at the pool. You can see in the background the big fountain they have and the little waterslide. They also have a bigger waterslide and two eddy whirlpools that make you float round and round!
Here are Liam and I. I love this picture!! Liam is so sweet with his little hands clasped together! My chubby little man! Thanks Melissa for sharing these with us!!
