Liam turned 16 months old while we were in Georgia for Christmas, and it's amazing the things he was doing while we were there. I know I say it every month, but it is SO cool to watch him grow and learn new things!

I have no clue as to Liam's official stats, and probably won't until his 18 month check-up. All I can tell you is that he is growing and is a big boy!

Liam is wearing 12-18 month, 18 month, and some 18-24 month stuff. Basically he always wears a little bigger on top because he has a long torso and shorter legs (like his Mom and Dad!). He wears size 22 shoe (or size 5 in the States), and is in size 5 diapers.

Liam is a decent eater, and has discovered some new favorites snacks like string cheese or cheddar sticks, goldfish, and he is obsessed with grapes! His breakfast is usually his biggest meal of the day and he will eat two eggs, or a bowl of oatmeal and a banana, or a pancakes with some fruit . . . the boy loves breakfast!

Liam's sleep stayed the same for the first part of the month, but then when we got to Georgia it was pretty much downhill from there -- he never fully adjusted to a good sleeping schedule while we stayed at my parents house, and that made for a really rough month. Every night he would sleep from 8 pm until sometime between 1-3 am, at which point he would wake up and we couldn't get him back to sleep until we brought him into bed with us. So there were basically about four or five nights out of thirty that Keith and I slept all night alone. Wow. He napped about an hour and a half each afternoon, and that stayed pretty consistent which was good.

"Liam, did you eat a sandwich for lunch?"
"Was it good?"
"Did you have milk too?"
"How many grapes did you have?"
All. day. long. We could not trip him up!

Liam is still signing a lot, and I find myself having to look up more and more signs because I can tell he is wanting to learn them! The latest ones I had to learn were motorcycle, leaf, and giraffe. Poor thing will probably talk with his hands like his Mama! Now, however, he is also saying words with the signs -- so if he wants more, he does the sign for more while saying "Mo! Mo!" or he will sign please while saying "ease!" It's precious to watch! :)
