Wow! It's the last week of 2014 and the portrait project has come to a close. Don't worry, I'll continue it onto 2015. ;)

Hope you have a happy and safe ringing in of 2015!

Excuse that nasty nose...all Liam wanted for Christmas was his two back teeth.

"What?! No way! It's New Year's Eve?"

You may think he is mid-sneeze. Alas, just trying to get a laugh.

Today I am especially grateful for a Swedish company that produces the perfect pajamas hands down. I grew up seeing these dala horses around the house per my dad. Now Liam can sport these jammies as a perfect reminder.

Thank you Hanna Andersson !

(and Grams and Grandpa!)

Citrus Lane

Our December Citrus Lane box arrived and it's a good one!

We got a cute book called "Little Pea" who has to eat candy for dinner and he hates it (very clever. SPOILER ALERT--he gets spinach for dessert), a Hape counting stacker, two yummy pouches, and a stuffed dog Liam is going to love giving kisses (placing the dog to his nose and smelling it then rubbing his ear with it).'s the smart baby....being smart.


Crusty, sticky baby face to match the crusty, sticky keyboard I now have.

I love a good out-of-focus Christmas tree light photo.

Love that those last few toes don't touch the ground yet. Long live the baby fat pad.

Sure Liam, please do play in Kitten's bathroom, no problem.

Much better, the kitchen drawer. The knives have been relocated as of this week.

Is this helpful?

December certainly snuck up on me.
As did this cute close up.

Alma College, not to be confused with Alabama (as MANY southerners do).

This is one example of time well spent during Liam's nap. Although I'd venture to say that lunch and Gilmore Girls counts as well.

We had a wonderful time visiting family in Gettysburg for Thanksgiving! We love seeing everybody and luckily Liam is a good traveler.

I'm going to do this post at the beginning of the week as we will be traveling this week for Thanksgiving.

This boy loves his blankets. Those squinty, smiling eyes are my favorite.

Have I mentioned he LOVES cars?

We hope you have a happy Thanksgiving!
Can't wait to see you Wilson's!

Citrus Lane

 Liam's Citrus Lane delivery this month was perfect! We got a divided plate, which has ended up in way less food on the floor, one of my favorite brands of bibs, a wooden car, and a really cute and colorful book.

We love Citrus Lane and are excited that we will be getting deliveries next year as well. Thanks Grams!


November looked weird the other day. This.Never.Happens.

Walking Baby

His newest trick.

Ummmm.....I think you're supposed to be IN the basket though buddy.

Ninth out of Fifty

Oh how I love these book posts. I love preparing for them by giving Liam the book and watching him look it over and flip through the pages. I hope his love for books continues to grow!

The ninth book out of fifty books to read before you turn 5 is Olivia by Ian Falconer.

Sabres Baby

To our Buffalo Sabres family,

We have loved all of our official sports gear. This's adorable and has been well loved--now it has most definitely become too small. We had one last hoorah before I retire it to the attic.



See you all SOON!

Something awe-inspiring happening? No, just the kitty's laser pointer. He has is mastered and it's glorious.
