more changes.

As I type I am sitting on a little self made sofa on the floor of our apartment.  This self made sofa is made up of 3 blankets and a couple pillows.  Yep, we sold our couch today to a couple people off of Craigslist.  We were hoping to sell it before we moved on Friday.  I guess it worked out well and sold faster than I thought it would.  One less thing for the movers to move.  I can deal with my little floor sofa for the next 5 days.  That couch served us well. It was our first couch in our first home.

Did you catch that??? We are moving into our new home on Friday.  It has been a long 6 and a half months coming.  Mostly because I am not a fan of apartment living.  Plus, I'm just dying to get into our new home.  What a blessing it is to have just a beautiful home.  Cannot wait to fill it with memories of family and friends. Liam is going to just love all the space.  Well, me and John are going to love all the space too!! I'll be sure to post pictures as we fill the house with furniture and our belongings.  :-) Night night.

Some are good and some are...not.

Today was just one of them days.  Me and Liam went to the park today.  Liam loves the swings.  They just make him smile. Going to the park is fun for Liam but for me, sometimes, not so much.  Why you ask....well because there are usually a bunch of other little kiddos that are obviously younger and even the same age as Liam who are able to run around and do things Liam can't.  I guess it just makes me sad that Liam can't run around and play on the other equipment like he should be able to.  Not that Liam knows the difference or anything..but I know.  All of the things that the average kiddo does on a daily basis we have to work hard at. I know we have so much to be thankful for.  Liam is a healthy little boy and very happy.  I know there are so many parents who deal with so much more difficult situations on a daily basis. I still can't help but want my baby to be where he is suppose to be. 

Liam has come so far just in the last few months.  Liam wasn't even crawling when we moved to Texas back in August.  Now he's crawling super fast, pulls up and cruising on the couch or coffee table.  He can even walk for a bit with me holding only one hand.  That is HUGE!! I'm so excited to see where he'll be by his 2nd birthday.  Walking is our goal! 

Liam has a neurologist appointment at the end of this month,  Not sure what will come of it, if anything. I'll be sure to keep everyone updated on the outcome.  If anything, maybe we can get an explanation or a title for why things are the way they are.  Some answers would be nice.

And..that was yesterday! :-)

Today was a new day.  Thank God for another day. A fresh start.  A new outlook on things. Changing moods. :-) Me and Liam had another outing to the park this morning with some other mommies from the area.  It was fun.  We walked around and mostly played on the swings.  Liam LOVES the swings.  I think, if I let him, he would swing all day long.  Of course there was the feelings and thoughts that I wished Liam was running around like the other kiddos but today I just had a better outlook on things.  I know our little man will get it!  In a year or two from now Liam will be unstoppable!

I know that I get down and out sometimes but I reminded myself today that The Lord wouldn't give us anything that we can't handle.  God made me and John strong enough to deal with it and get through it.  I think of other families that deal with so much more..or even worse..lose a little strong they must be. Much stronger than me.

So...I leave you with this sweet little face.  This face is just oh so precious.

Liam doing what he's not suppose to....getting Ally Dog's food.  Ally does not like that.

Thought I would share the brand of eyelash curler I use.  I never had a problem finding a good eye lash curler.  The problem I had was that I could never find the right refills.  I found this Japonesque eye lash curler at Ulta.  It's more expensive than I like to spend on an eye lash curler but get comes with a lifetime replacement program for the refills.  That's right! All you need to do is once you need a new one or you are getting close to needing a new one, you email the company, info in the package, and the mail you two refills at a time.  It's pretty awesome.  Never again need to buy another eye lash curler or refills again!!  I love it.  Worth the $$$ and it curls great too!

Liam had tubes put in today.

For a while now Liam has had constant ear infections.  The fluid in his ears would just not go away.  He failed his hearing test in his left ear a week ago.  Liam has been in speech therapy and occupational therapy since October so we are hoping the tubes help with the therapy.  Liam can hear much better and soon we will tell if it's helped with his speech and balance as well.

singing Jesus loves the little children. Liam loves when I sing to him.

me reading to Liam.  He loves them books.

The surgery itself went quick and Liam did so well. Prior to the surgery they gave Liam a "cocktail" that made him very relaxed. He's already a very low tone baby so that medicine made him even more so.  Honestly, my biggest worry was that Liam would be so hungry because he couldn't eat or drink anything.  And Liam loves his food. The surgery lasted about 20 minutes.  After the procedure Liam was a bit upset.  He was so sleepy.  Usually kiddos wake up afterward....not Liam.  Liam passed out on me.  It was the sweetest thing.  I don't get to hold Liam like this very much anymore.  I enjoyed every second of him passed out on me.

 mouth wide open.  

I just love this little boy oh so much!!
