More Christmas pictures from Chilliwack

Here is Liam attacking his Grandma Teschke. He really likes her!!
What a cute baby in his reindeer antlers!! Most of his time was spent pulling these off everytime we put them on...which was quite often!! Babies are for our amusement, right?!
Here is the little guy about to dive into his stocking. See previous pictures for the outcome!
Look at all those presents. Liam sure was spoiled this year!!
Here is Liam with his Grandpa Teschke. I used to think there was just a Christie family resemblence, but this picture has me thinking twice!!

Christmas has landed

Here is Liam at his Grandma Teschke's home in Chilliwack where we spent our Christmas vacation...a full 4 days!! Grandma Teschke is a bit more festive than me and had cute decorations for Liam to wear. The santa hat didn't ever stay on Liam's head for long. Maybe next year. He did like how fuzzy it was though...and the giant pompom on the end!
Christmas morning. Liam decided to wake up a full hour earlier than usual. Fun. As you can tell by the eye rubbing in this was early for him too! I guess he just wanted to see if Santa had been!
Ah, opening the stocking...a time honoured tradition. Good thing it included chocolate!! Note the bike in the background was not a new Christmas present. It was just jazzed up with Liam's new catapiller toy!
This is what happens when you give a baby chocolate. Thank goodness that's not poop.
In the aftermath of Christmas, here are Liam and I by the Christmas tree. We look either like pirates or jailbirds with our stripes. RRR.

Merry Christmas!!

Here is Liam wearing a bow. What could be a better gift at the holidays than the love of your child? Liam has learned how to hug and kiss mommy and I adore it!! He has also learned how to grip and pinch painfully as well as honing his glasses-removal skills. Fantastic!
Liam would like to know who this Santa guy is that everyone keeps talking about. Oh, you'll see, Liam. You'll see!!
Ah, now he is frightened!! Or else he thinks Santa is going to pass him by this year. Shouldn't have done all that pinching, Liam, you naughty boy!! Or eaten that big lump of mud from the stroller wheel, or stollen toys from you friends only to not share them back, or eaten mommy's toy patterns!!!
Speaking of funny Liam faces, here is a classic!! Ah, gotta love Sunday mornings!!

Liam and Ian

Here come my boys!! This is Liam decked out in his warm gear. The toque is bamboo and the hoodie is dinosaur camo. Too cute!!

Liam eats an Oreo

Looks like tribal war paint.
I am not a big stickler on keeping Liam away from sugar. My parents did with me...and I turned out to be a sugar-hog anyways....mmmmmm, candy. I am trying to restrict the amount and the frequency of such treats, but still allowing him to try stuff out. Things with artifical colouring on the other hand are a completely different story. Those I am certainly trying to stay away from. All in all, I think it is most important to teach Liam how to achieve a balanced diet of a variety of healthy foods and to ENJOY himself. Food is not guilt, nor is it a reward or bandaid. Momma's love should not be equivelent to a tastey treat.
