Who says Two has to be Terrible?

26 May

We have been celebrating Liam’s second birthday all month long around our house.  I love that he has a May birthday because it’s such a fun month with school ending and summertime beginning!  Liam has changed so much since I last posted.  I just re-read the 1.5 year old post and had to chuckle at […]

Look at me…I’m 1 1/2!

21 Nov

Today is Liam’s Eighteen Month Birthday.  I’m not sure when we stop counting in months, but we can now officially report that he is a year and half old!  The Fall months have been so busy for our family.  It seems like we are always partying….Halloween parties, Thanksgiving parties, and will soon be moving on to […]

Fifteen & Sixteen?!? Months….

25 Sep

Our little guy turned sixteen months old earlier this week. I have tried to write a monthly post since we started our food journey with Liam at four months (wow, has it really been a year?) but these past two months just slipped right by me.  Liam’s personality and energy level are both exploding right […]

French Kids Eat Everything

14 Aug

I recently read a fantastic book called “French Kids Eat Everything” by Karen Le Billon…. The book is an account of an American mother desperately trying to change her American children’s poor eating habits while living in France.  This proved to be a great read for a mother that hopes to mold her son […]

Fourteen Months…Huh?

30 Jul

If I were to sum up the month leading up to Liam’s 14 month birthday, it would be “huh”?  Not only is that the only thing Liam can say right now, but this month has been so busy that I also feel like saying “Huh?”. Liam is running around EVERYWHERE and the month itself has flown by as well! […]

Thirteen Months…Dogs Days of Summer

24 Jun

All of the excitement of Liam’s first birthday has passed and we are now entering the “toddler” phase of parenting.  Liam is starting to run walk on his own and he is a force to be reckoned with.  He is beginning to cut the nasty molars everyone warned me about and that has definitely thrown […]

What to feed a one year old…

4 Jun

There are so many changes a child goes through after their first birthday.  There is a long list of items to check off including the switch to whole milk, transitioning from bottle to a sippy cup, and incorporating more and more regular table food into their diets. We have had a pretty seamless transition with […]

Party Like a Rock Star…

23 May

Liam turned a year old this week (sniffle, sniffle)…I knew I would be a little emotional so I put a lot of effort into making his first birthday party extra special!  Liam’s party theme was a rock & roll first birthday tour and we made sure music was a part of all of the festivities. […]

Ten Months – Beach Life

25 Apr

We celebrated the end of tax season and Liam’s eleven month birthday with a family vacation to Hilton Head Island.  Liam wasn’t so sure about all of the sand at first, but it only took a few minutes before he was crawling around like he owned the place. We had a bit of a problem […]

Little Mr. Independent

2 Apr

I previously posted about trying to work with Liam on developing table manners.  I’m not doing such a great job… Right around Liam’s ten month birthday, I began having a really hard time getting him to eat.  I have a freezer full of homemade baby purees and after a few bites he would shake his […]
