Every now and then I like to do a post after we empty our iphone pictures onto the computer. It really gives a good picture of what our lives look like between blog posts.
For example, we took Liam to the circus for the first time a couple of months ago and he was so super excited about it. I didn't bring my camera because I was lugging both kids by myself until Paul met us there when he got off work. Luckily he snapped a few pictures on his phone when Liam was running around outside during intermission. By the way, did you know that Circus Vargas doesn't have animals? It's a new humane circus but I must say that it wasn't quite the same as the circuses I saw as a kid. But Liam liked it a lot, especially the clowns.
Liam went through a phase when Brygit was a newborn where he became mommy to this cute pink bear we got at Brygit's baby shower. He called her "Brygit Bear" and he fed her from an empty bottle, lifted his shirt to nurse her, and rocked her to sleep. It was very sweet.
We have had a few trips to Disneyland and Liam has collected many more autographs for his book.
We had a rather uncomfortable ride on Casey Jr. one day. Brygit got scared when they started the engine so she cried pretty much the entire time.
And Liam was smushed between Paul and I the whole time. Maybe two separate cars would be a good idea next time.
But the carousel was fun, as always.
And we felt extra adventurous so we took the kids to the Rainforest Cafe in Downtown Disney only to be extremely disappointed that the place completely creeped them out. They both cried a whole lot. Nothing like enjoying a shrimp and steak dinner while being "that family" at the restaurant. Luckily, it was extremely loud in there anyway with the jungle music and thunderstorms and whatnot so I think we were the only ones disturbed. And, apparently, I smiled for a picture so it couldn't have been that bad, right?
Liam has always been a mama's boy so when Brygit came along, Paul has been making it a point to step in when I can't. He has even taken Liam on some fun outtings alone for some extra male bonding time. Liam really enjoys these times and he has gotten really good at leaving me (tear). I'm sure it's because the outtings usually look like this. Ice cream at "Mickey Donald's!"
One of these times Paul took Liam to an air show and they had a blast.
I love that the two of them are growing so close and that Paul is teaching Liam things I know nothing about.
