Here's just some stuff.
Liam holds his head up. Getting less and less wobbly day by day.
Reese coloring. When she isn't trying to duplicate my five-pointed stars or the letter "e", or drawing long lines, she has recently started centralizing her scribbles to resemble something that looks like trying to stay inside the lines on the coloring book page.
Grandpa Great lures Reese to the dance floor by playing some stylish music about bears.

We celebrated your second birthday with a gathering of family- your cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents (and, of course, your momma, daddy and little brother.)
I made you a choo choo train cake because you are currently in love with all things choo choo train. You like to make the sounds, pretend to be riding, color pictures and play with toy trains.
Before your uncle mike cut the cake, you blew out both candles without any help.
You didn't need a fork to gobble up your piece.
You received a father's priesthood blessing on Sunday, August 15. The event was held at your Grandpa and Grandma Faber's house.
Your mother was touched at the love of family and your Heavenly Father, who wants you to have many blessings throughout your life.
Among other things, your Dad felt inspired to bless you with health in body and mind, and the capacity to help those around you understand our Savior's love.
So far, you seem to have accomplished both.

doesn't like dirty diapers . eats about every 2.5 hours . slept 5 hours at night one time . first babysitter: Grandma Great . gets hugs and kisses from big sister Reese all the time . likes being on the diaper-changing table . likes being held, especially on your chest . too often falls asleep while eating . tries to hold his head up (and is actually pretty good at it) . likes the binky . always seems to wiggle to a crooked position in his bassinet . still fits in newborn size diapers .

To his credit, "creamsicle" does sound like "green pickle."
Today we had the creamsicles out again. Grandma gave one to Reese and then realized that she probably shouldn't go out and eat hers on the couch, because then Reese would take it as a go-ahead to do the same. She began to sit down at the table when Reese, who was at the counter, motioned to Grandma to sit at the counter next to her. It was so cute I couldn't resist getting a snapshot of the two enjoying their popsicles together.
I'm also pretty lucky because just last weekend one of Reese's cousins, Lillie, taught Reese how to say "cheese" for pictures.
