Please don't let this be a fluke!

Christmas 2009 was very special for our family. There was snow on the ground and magic in the air as we witnessed Liam's very first Christmas. Liam must have convinced Santa that he was a very good little boy this year because he certainly got a lot of wonderful presents! And we all enjoyed watching him open and enjoy each one.
Here he is opening a gift from his pen pal in England!
His favorite gifts were the Musical Microphone and Silly Town toys (from his Grandparents)
and anything else that blinks and sings! Then again, the tissue paper and bows were also very popular. I wish this video weren't so dark but I had to share how thrilling the tissue paper "toy" was.
Maybe next year Santa can just bring a whole lot of bubble wrap and shiny ribbon.
This is what's left of Frosty the Snowman after Liam got his hands on him.
This is really more of a Christmas weekend as the festivities will continue tomorrow with a visit from Aunties Stephanie and Una and Uncles John and Jeff. Liam says "Bring it on!"
I'm sure there will be more pictures to follow but this ought to tide you over for a while!
Merry Christmas everyone!

After 25 minutes of stuffing Liam into his snow pants, jacket, hat and mittens, we took a very puffy and mostly immobile child out for his first sled ride. We manage to enjoy about 6 minutes out in the snow before he let us know that he's had enough!
And here he is looking all pink-cheeked and adorable!
When did he get to be so grown up? He is now standing, unsupported, for many seconds and has sprouted again so that I had to move him up to the 12 month pajamas. Wow! He is also experimenting with finger foods. So far we've tried puffs, Crispix and Ritz crackers. Ritz are the big winner by a landslide. Can't say I blame him there!

As these pictures might suggest, Liam continues to assert his dominance at play group. Notice how the other lads are sitting quietly while my guy is a wriggle monkey and is tearing up the set?
And here he is in his favorite new toy, the exersaucer. Thanks Auntie Meg!

Our days start super early around here! Usually, we are all awake and having breakfast together by 6:30. This morning we decided that there should be a video game called "Feed the Baby". Each level progresses past different obstacles like flailing arms, pureed fruit shooting at you, dodging flung toys and not getting completely covered in oatmeal. I got a top score today but more often than not, Liam is the big winner.
Here are some cute pictures of the little terror.
