+After reading that in a few months Liam should be able to recognize at least eight body parts, I realized that, other than a few renditions of Head and Shoulders, Knees and Toes, we'd never really tried to teach Liam his body parts. So, over the course of the past few weeks we've been trying to teach him, starting with eyes, ears, mouth, and nose. Whenever I ask him where his nose is, he immediately sticks his finger up his nose. Total boy move.
+On a related note, whenever I ask him where his eyes are, he looks at me like, "Silly mama, I don't have eyes" and moves on to playing with his trucks. I finally realized that it's because both Craig and I have glasses, so he thinks the glasses are our eyes. We're working on clearing up that confusion.
+We're also starting to learn the names of all of the engines in his Thomas set. One day, Liam came up to me with his Toby and said, "Toby Nomas." Apparently, Thomas is just another word for train.
+I may or may not have said, "Liam, Mommy's going to make cereal for dinner tonight" this week. For the record, he shouted "Ceral!" and asked for seconds.
+The other day, when I picked Liam up from daycare, Duane told me that Liam's a "pretty good kid--he plays well with the others and listens when we tell him to do something. He doesn't really like cleaning up though." (I wonder where he gets that from? I'll give you one hint: there are equally as many pair of shoes on the floor of our porch as there are trucks in the living room.) So, I tried to teach Liam the clean up song at home that night. I picked up a few of my shoes and ran them down to our closet. While I was down there, I could hear Liam's trucks being flung around as he was shouting, "Mean up! Mean up!" When I got back upstairs, his trucks were all in the tub where we keep them. Score one for Mommy.
