Some Firsts for Liam

Well, we surely had a wonderful Labor Day weekend. Although our Labor Day was pretty much spent "laboring" around the house, we got a lot of things done that we'd put off and got to spend some good quality family time together. The month of August was ridiculously busy for us. Jonathan had a crazy work schedule with lots of meetings that kept him out many week nights, and all in all, we were just BUSY. Thankfully, though, that is not the norm for us, so hopefully life will slow down a bit so we can enjoy each other and this coming fall weather! I am SOOOOO excited about Fall!

So, on to Liam and what new things he's been up to:

Liam watched his first UT Vols game this past Saturday. We had a family get-together at the Bradshaws and watched the game. Thankfully, the Vols kicked some tail, so we were quite proud of them. However, I have to admit that I was a bit bored with the game because they totally smoked the WKU Toppers. What is a Topper, anyway? Confession: We did not stay up to watch the LSU Tigers play, but I am proud to announce that they, too, won! GEAUX TIGERS!

Anyway, Liam is pretty much feeling better, so we decided to introduce him to rice cereal over the weekend. He loved it, and really didn't have any trouble with getting the gist of how to do the whole eating thing the first time. Times 2 and 3 haven't been as smooth, but I know he'll get the hang of it eventually. Here are some pictures of this momentous occasion:

So, funny story. Nora was totally into Liam eating cereal. I had her help me pick out a bib for him, and I set Liam on the floor in his bouncy seat so Nora could have a great view of the whole process. In the midst of feeding him, Nora decided that SHE wanted to try the rice cereal. So, we let her. BIG mistake. She spit it out and got really upset....I think because Jonathan and I couldn't help but laugh at her reaction to eating the cereal. I trust rice cereal tastes pretty yucky. Here are some videos that Jonathan captured. They are long, but you can see how it all went down if you want.

Another bit of news for Liam is that he can roll over! On Friday, actually, (his 4 month birthday), he started rolling from belly to back. He's done it several times now, and usually does so when he wakes up from a nap. It's really cute to go in there to get him only to see his big ole eyes staring up at you! When on his back, he rolls to his side, so I think it's only a matter of time before he's rolling from back to belly. Ah, how different it's going to be to have a kiddo that is mobile at an early age! Nora NEVER rolled. EVER. I love how different they are.

We also busted out the good ole exersaucer this weekend. Liam is nearly close enough to supporting himself in it without help, but we stuffed a blanket around him and he can sit really comfortably in it for a while. He was totally intrigued by the massive number of toys to look at. Nora likes to "bounce" Liam in the exersaucer, so we have to watch her like a hawk. T-R-O-U-B-L-E that girl is. But she sure does love her baby brother! No pics yet of Liam in the exersaucer, so I"ll have to get some of those real soon.
