On Tuesday, August 14th Liam turned 12 weeks old. He has been gradually growing and every day we see him changing and growing. He is steadily sleeping longer stretches at night and staying awake for longer stretches during the day. He plays very hard and now finds it difficult to take naps during the day as it seems he doesn’t want to miss out on anything. We’re still learning how to be Liam’s parents, but we’re pretty sure we’ll still be trying to figure that one out 20 years from now. We love the changes each new day brings and August 14th was a fun one.
We started our day with a trip to Discovery Park with Nana, Momma and Liam and two dogs (Tashii and Greta). We met up with a very pregnant Aunt Karyn, cousin Asher and a bunch of their momma and kid friends. This was Michala’s very first “mom’s” outing and Liam was so great it was easy to make it successful. Michala got to spend lots of play time with Asher while Nana and Aunt Karyn spent most of their time with Liam in the shade.
The next big adventure of the day came when Aunt Karyn went into labor and then gave birth to our beautiful new nephew, Avery Ethan! He is so adorable and precious and of course reminded us so much of our first few hours with Liam. We are all so thrilled to welcome the littlest boy into the family and can’t wait to spend more time with him. We’re also looking forward to many adventures of Liam and his new cousin growing up together!
Asher also had a big day with becoming a new big brother and having his first sleepover at our house! He got to sleep in Nana and Papa’s room and slept all the way through the night. BUT, he wasn’t the only little boy to sleep through the night. Liam also slept through the night for his very first time! Of course, that made Momma and Dada very happy!
