Pumpkin Patch

Last weekend before Liam and I went to St Thomas, we met Marcie, Kevin, and Kylee at the Pumpkin Patch in Flower Mound. Here are my favorite photos from the day. Enjoy!

Trip to St Thomas

Liam and I traveled to St Thomas and stayed with Grammy (Will's mom) and Aunt Terry in the Ritz Carlton. What a fantastic time we had! Liam took two flights there and three flights on the way home and was such a trooper both ways. I got so many compliments about what a good baby he is. After each flight I'd have several people tell me how worried they were when they saw us seated near them, then how pleasantly surprised they were by him! During our trip Liam got into the ocean and the swimming pool, took walks with Grammy, went on a ferry to St John, and went on a sunset cruise! Here are some great Liam pictures from our trip:



Also, because St Thomas is such a beautiful place, here are some photos I took from our sunset cruise and of the awesome scenery:



And finally I wanted to share my first ever attempts at water coloring. I took two classes with the resident artist and it was so much fun!

All in all we had a great trip, though it was hard to be away from Papi all week!

3 months

Well, another month has flown by! Liam continues to grow and change everyday. He continues to smile and talk to us a lot and is such a happy boy! This month he learned to pout by sticking his bottom lip out, though he is usually pretty shortly smiling again after. Here is a video of Papi playing with him, where he goes from pout to smile over and over. It is so funny! The video is taken from my cell phone so it isn't the best quality.

He has finally learned to suck his fingers this month and does so often. He still sleeps well at night (thankfully!) and had some great first adventures this month. His first Pumpkin Patch, first time in the ocean and a swimming pool, and his first time on an airplane! He is becoming more interactive with his toys and is now bringing them to his mouth to figure them out.

Here are a few photos from the past month...

I almost packed Liam in a box with all the confusion from our move, ha!

Reunion of our birthing class:





We finally got to meet beautiful Emrie Griffith! :)





I'll also add blog entries for our trip to the Pumpkin Patch and our trip to St. Thomas!

2 month Doctor appointment

I am late on this blog post, but wanted to post it anyways. Liam is such a growing boy! At two months he weighed in at 11 pounds, 14 ounces. He's right at average for his weight and head circumference, but is well on the tall side of percentages. We're going to have a tall little man. :) He continues to spit up a lot and gets the hiccups several times a day, so the doctor gave us some medicine for reflux. It has definitely helped some. The doctor also gave us something for his scalp, as his head has been peeling like crazy. It's already looking better!

The hardest part of this visit was that Liam had to get three shots. He was such a trooper though! He cried when the shots were given, but was easily soothed right after. He even slept all the way home. :) The only other thing to note from the appointment is that the doctor commented on how good Liam's eye contact is! :) We're so glad to have such a happy, healthy, little man.

The Wallaces Come Home

That's right... The Wallaces are back in the good old hometown!! It is so exciting to be living near family and friends again. I can't wait to get out and about and start visiting everybody. In the meantime, here is a quick peak at the new house.
