I promised more Liam pictures this week since I got to keep him for a week. I mentioned last week that we did our annual cookie painting/decorating the night they brought him. He really enjoyed eating the works of his hands.
You have to really be careful with alternative sweeteners because if you consume too much of them it can cause gastric distress (a.k.a. gas and/or diarrhea). Thus I’m careful not to give him too much sweets so he doesn’t hurt.
Tiffany put some garland up over the top of the doorways in the hall.
We don’t have a fireplace, so we hang stockings in the hallway. She showed Liam which one is his (the penguin).
I was surprised that of my three Christmas musical critters, he liked the stationary snowman with moving lights the best. I would have thought he’d have liked the sledding snowman or the adorable dog that moves around.
He figured out that he could stop the song and press the button again to get to a different song. He seemed to have a favorite because there was only one or two songs that he’d let it play out.
He’s learned to “color”. He colored a bit with Tiffany.
He had his first kefir while he was here. To say he liked it, is an understatement. This was Sean pouring some double-fermented kefir smoothie into a cup for Liam.
He really liked it.
When he finished downing the first bit he was given, he wanted more and got really excited while Sean was pouring it.
This was not a one time reaction. He got excited every time we gave him some. I promise it was only fruit, kefir, sweetener, and ice.
He also found the Christmas picture blocks. I have had these crazy things for sooo long, I’m so glad he likes them. My kids never really played with them much.
They are so old that the pictures are coming off some of the blocks, with a little help. I’m glad he likes to play with them though.
I enjoyed having him here. His parents came and stayed the night and the next day. We went to see some Christmas lights in Muskogee but I think I’ve shared enough cuteness for one week.
I’m a bit tired from shopping ALL day yesterday and then wrapping today. I wish I were quicker at it but alas, I still have more to do. So I’m going to run. I’ve got to get this wrapping finished so that I can get started on the baking.
I hope you have a wonderful Christmas! I know we will.
Until next time, God bless,
