Here are some recent cute pictures of the big boy.

Liam loved reading his Christmas card from Grandpa Fred.

Liam thinks his new pal, Scout, is tops!

After church on Sunday, Liam was so tired he fell asleep on the ride home. It was cold and he was wearing his teddy bear bunting. I didn't want to take it off for fear that it would wake him. So, he slept like this for a good 30 minutes or so.

Sometimes he likes to be on his tummy. You can see Mike's Christmas painting in the background (thanks, Stacy, for the use of your photo)

Look at those big, bright eyes. Is there anything cuter? I think not!

Learning so fast...

So, Liam was extra talkative, playful and cute last night. Chels got these videos with her phone, so the quality isn't the best. The screech at the end of one of them is a happy sound, and he was doing it all night.

Giggling little boy

Liam has been so funny lately. He has recently discovered how to blow spit bubbles. He also giggles a lot. I was attempting to get video of him blowing bubbles, but he stopped as I got the camera out. Sorry about the dark picture and the odd angle. Mostly just listen to his cute little voice...

Caaaan yoooou giive uuuus direeeeectioooons?

The other night, Chelsie and I took the boy to watch that BBC/Disney movie "Earth." Liam was such an excellent baby, he was quiet the entire time and didn't bother any of our fellow moviegoers. Did I say he was quiet the entire time? I take that back. Here's how the story goes:

He was either eating, dozing or just sitting like a blob for 99.9% of the time. In the meantime, Chelsie and I were enjoying the really cool footage of polar bears, humpback whales, elephants, and some really beautiful images of God's earth.

At one point during a segment about the humpback whales, the soundtrack included the momma and baby whales talking to each other, making those deep, bellowy "oooooooHHHH" noises that whales make. All of a sudden, our blob of a baby became rigid and alert, and fixated his eyes on the movie screen. Something about those whale calls resonated (literally) with the kid, and his interest piqued.

Next thing you know, our Liam was "oooOHHHH" -ing back at the screen, as if he was communicating with them. Holy cow, it was amazingly funny! "ooooHH! ooooHH!!" he said. Chelsie and I laughed so hard.

After getting home that evening, we decided to try our hand at whale impersonating. He laughed and imitated our sounds. It was a conversation of idiotic parents talking with their three-month old in humpback whale-ese. Now, whenever we talk with him, we do our best whale impressions, and if he's in a talkative mood, he will respond in kind. What a weirdo. Remind you of somebody?

Liam loves to sing

Here is our cutie patootie singing the Spectrum Song. Sorry about the shaky, bad quality video. It's from my cell phone and I was dancing a little. :)
