Liam - Eleven Months Old

It's hard to believe that our Liam is 11 months old already! He is such a happy and busy baby boy. What a complete joy he is to our family.
His older brothers adore him and he has an especially sweet bond with David. No one can make him laugh like David can! It's precious to see how much they love each other. David likes to rush in to give Liam hugs and kisses each morning when he wakes up. He follows him around making up games and talking to him and showering him with kisses. David is also so thrilled (I think he's more excited than I am) about each new thing that Liam is able to do. I am so looking forward to my three boys growing up together and becoming good buddies.
Liam is so happy! He is smiling and laughing all day. He is very pleasant and it's never hard to get him to smile or laugh. He is such a ray of sunshine.
He's also busy, busy, busy! He has been pulling up and cruising around for a couple of months and now he can stand up by himself. He hasn't tried to take any steps yet, but his balance is really good so it's probably not too far off when he will start walking. He loves to climb! Oh my does he keep me busy! He loves to climb on anything, especially the steps. I can't imagine what he'll be like when he starts walking! :)
He loves for us to try to chase him and that makes him laugh and laugh. He loves to join in with us when we sing by clapping and dancing. He loves to dance and it's so cute to watch. He says "Mama" and "Dada" and "baba" (for bottle) and pretty much just babbles all day. And he LOVES to eat!...and eat and eat!
What a wonderful (almost) year it's been with our Lili. I can't wait to continue to watch him grow into the little person he will be.
We love our "Lili-loo"!
