A New Do!

We've been giving Liam his haircuts since he first starting getting them, but this time he wanted something different! He wanted hair like his Daddy and cousin Aidan, which meant that a lot of hair was getting cut!

Here is a before picture:

This is all the hair that was cut...

And this is the finished product!

He loves his new do! It's taking me a little bit to get used to it because it makes my baby look older, but it does suit him!

Becoming a Big Boy!

Today was a milestone for Liam. He has a little bit of an attachment to his 2 pacifiers. One is blue and the other is green. I can't really blame him, I was the same way when I was little. About 2 weeks ago I read about ways to get kids to let go of their "comfys." One example was to tie the pacifier to a balloon and say goodbye. We have been talking about it everyday for 2 weeks, and Liam decided that he was only ready to get rid of the green pacifier so far. That is a big step for him. So today, we got some balloons and tied his pacifier to it along with a note for whoever finds it. Liam was such a good sport. And afterwards, all he did was ask where the balloons went! Now we just have to work on the blue pacifier, and hopefully that will come soon!

21 weeks

I'm 21 weeks right now, and feeling pretty good. The heartburn has gotten a little worse than normal, and my feet have started to swell, but other than that, I'm feeling pretty good. Liam has been telling me every day this past week that my belly is BIG! I just keep telling to wait until his brother gets bigger!


Yesterday was my 30th birthday! I am officially out of the 20's. I was sad about it for the last few weeks, but it ends up being ok. It's a new decade and there are lots of changes coming, so I guess that it is suiting for a new age to be entered as well. We celebrated on Sunday with a family dinner at the Spaghetti Factory. My Dad had one of his friends make a great cake! I worked on my actual birthday, so we didn't really do anything. I got a cake, magazine, gift card, cookies and candy from my co-workers which was very nice. It was nice to just relax and be with my family. The pictures aren't that great because no one would sit still and the lighting was weird in there. I even had to re-create blowing out the candles because no one caught the picture!
