6.20.11 - A Happy Father's Day!

We had a great Father's Day yesterday spent with my parents.  We went to church in the morning and then headed to their house for lunch. 
Liam and daddy
Liam and Baba

Liam had a great time painting with his Mimi and we enjoyed relaxing and watching the U.S. Open golf tournament.  All in all it was a very relaxing and fun day!

I also wanted to add a few updates of Liam and where he is at right now, mainly because this will probably serve more as his baby book than anything else in the future, so here we go!

Liam is currently 24 lbs and is 33" tall.  I think he has grown 2 inches in just the past two months!  He is taking after his dad at being tall and thin!  I am getting a little concerned he has not gained any weight, but eating is going pretty good.  Now that it is summer time, he is loving to eat quite a bit of fruit and veggies, so it's harder to get the heavy calories in him.  We also still use his tube about 4-5 times per week to put juice or water in for extra hydration.  Our plan is that he will hopefully gain SOME weight before his next pedi appointment at 2 years (which is a little over 3 months away, can't believe it!) and then wait until his cardio follow up in November before we consider taking his tube out.  We definitely don't want to take it out prematurely at this point.

Liam is now saying two and some three word phrases.  Some of his favorites include, Baba's House, Daddy's truck, trash truck (I am inclined to think my dad taught him this one as they both watch the trash truck pick up every Tuesday when I am at work!), Night Moon (his favorite book right now is Goodnight Moon), Mama sit, new shirt, down please and show.  Some of his words for things are as follows:

TV Remote = Mote (yes, he watches too much TV, I know, I know!)
Outside = oot-sigh
Waterpark = pa-park
Dora and Boots = Da and Boots (his favorite show right now)
I love you = Wuv you
Kitty = Key

He has a mouth full of teeth, I think he is only missing about 6 from having a full set!  They all seemed to sprout up at once starting the beginning of this year.  He no longer takes a pacifier and is really good when he sees his baby cousins using them, as he will help them put it back in their mouths!

Some of Liam's favorite activities include crawling in and out of his wagon (or furniture, or anything for that matter), play with his cars and trucks, going outside, chasing the cats, watching tv (ugh), brushing his teeth, and reading books.  He is a little shy when it comes to meeting new people and does not like to visit houses he is not used to or new places very much, but thankfully doctor's visits still go fairly smooth.

Liam has a new buddy, his stuffed kitty, that he takes to bed with him each nap and bedtime.  He loves her and will wave hi to her every morning.  It is the cutest thing ever.  Right now, as I am typing he is trying to take a picture of her with my iPhone...silly boy!

Liam loves to do the Hokey Pokey and Ring around the Rosie!  He is so cute when he does it, and I need to get a video of it!  He loves being silly with mommy and daddy, and I love that he has started stopping his feet when he gets frustrated or upset at something.  He also is now asking for "help" if he cannot do something himself.

That's pretty much the rundown around here!  Not much new news in the Johnson family for now.  I did want to mention that we will be doing TEAM LIAM again this year and participating again in the White Rock Marathon in Dallas on December 4!  Dustin is going to be running his first FULL MARATHON, so I am excited to get started raising money and getting a team together!  I have our FirstGiving site up and running but need a few tweaks of things here and there, but the roll out should be happening soon!  I know the marathon and 1/2 marathon fill up pretty quickly, so if you know you want to run with us, head on over to to sign up!  It is also cheaper if you sign up in advance =) 

I am also having trouble with editing pictures on my laptop...hence this post alone took me over 1.5 frustrating.  So my second part of our vacation pics will hopefully be coming soon!!
