First fort!
Liam had his first blizzard this week, and both Jay and I got to enjoy a snowday home with him yesterday!  On top of that, we had no internet, so we couldn't even work from home.  Instead, we built a fort (blankets and the coffee table!) and had a blast.  Add in some PBS, block towers to knock down, books to read and all other assorted fun, and it was a good day.  Luckily we were safe here at home, and only lost power for about 5 hours last night.  We camped out here in the living room next to the fireplace and stayed toasty warm until the power came back on about midnight.  Liam and I are enjoying day two of being snowbound now as the roads are still bad.
Day 2 - Resupplied with cheerios, juice, water and books...

After recovering from the chicken pox, Liam had tubes put in his ears on the 11th.  The doctor said that when he got in there, both ears were just horribly infected and that he had to be feeling a ton of relief almost immediately  Because the infections were so bad, we ended up having to add an oral antibiotic to the antibiotic drops, but hopefully (fingers crossed), this should be the end of those for a while!  The tubes, and cleaning out that fluid, made a huge difference almost immediately in his walking -- he is all over the place now! -- and he's babbling a lot more too and trying to repeat what you say.  I'm glad he's feeling better, he's such a trooper he never let on how much his ears must have been bothering him.

We had our first professional family pictures taken this month, and we're getting ready to celebrate Liam's First Christmas AND his First Birthday!  Next week will be a busy week, with lots of fun and family, and photos I'm sure.  This past weekend he discovered the fun of feeding Harley, and playing ball, as you can see in the videos below.  I hope you all are staying warm and safe this holiday season!

** The photos were taken at the local Target Studio here, but I purchased the CD and got permission to use them :)
