Two Months In

On the roof of Griffith Observatory
Liam is now a little over two months old and is doing wonderfully.  He's a hearty twelve pounds and is getting stronger every day.  In general he is a smiley, happy little guy whose favorite pastimes are cooing at his Winnie the Pooh mobile, staring at the wall, and sucking thoughtfully on his fist.  Last week he finally got to meet his Aunt Erin and Uncle Ethan, who drove out to visit us from Illinois.  It was great to have a nice leisurely visit with my sister and her husband.  Our last visit with them was last August when they were married, so it was incredibly hectic and there wasn't a lot of time to just chill and hang out.  We managed to go out to eat and even took a couple of quick day trips to the Griffith Observatory and (naturally) the Villa.  Hopefully we will get to visit with them again soon!

Lunch at El Pollo Inka
Not unexpectedly, I've not been able to keep up with my blog entries as often as I would like.  Days get consumed with diaper and outfit changes, tummy time, household chores, and naps (for Liam) in the rocking chair--which is as it should be, really.  Once I return to work next month I think I'll be able to post entries more regularly.  Fifteen minutes on a lunch break sans baby has the potential to be a lot more productive than any amount of time at home with the baby.  Even if Liam is sleeping, I swear he has a sixth sense--he wakes up the minute my hand touches a book or my laptop, and especially if my head dares to touch a pillow.  When I'm at home he rules my time like a cute, tiny overlord.

There's no doubt that we are slowly beginning to find our new normal and develop new routines.  I expect we will continue to get better at negotiating life as three instead of two, but I'm sure Liam will keep us on our toes as he grows and changes.

you gotta have some cool shades
