Merry Christmas 2010

Dear Family & Friends,

We would like to wish you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! As our family has had a very exciting and blessed year we would like to share with you some of our greatest memories and latest family updates.

On March 22nd 2010 our son, Liam, was brought into the world and he has been the most incredible gift to Nate and I, and our families. He brings so much love, joy, and happiness into our lives everyday, and we cannot imagine our lives without him! He is such an amazing little person, and is our little lovable carebear! He has been a very simple baby since birth, from eating and sleeping great, to his constant cheerful and happy attitude we could not ask for an easier child! As Liam will be 9months old already on December 22nd we cannot believe how fast the time has past!

Liam is patiently awaiting his twin boy cousins that are expected to arrive any day before January 17th! Extra prayers of patience and comfort to Colette & Quinn Siner as they get through the last days awaiting their new bundles of joy!

Our family has sold our home this past month, on Pine Street, and we are moving around 130th in Pacific towards the end of January! Although we have cherished each and every memory created in our current home we are excited and ready to create more wonderful memories in the next!

Nate is still working at MSI a Sirius company, as a Client Service Representative. Janelle, is working at Rosehill Elementary as a 3rd Grade Teacher. Janelle just completed her last graduate class at the University of Nebraska at Omaha, and is now going to take her comprehensive exams this upcoming March, and will be completing a technology practicum this upcoming Spring. She is expecting to graduate in May 2011 with her Masters Degree in Elementary Education with an Endorsement in Technology! Janelle also recently won an iPad for her classroom through Scholastic Books!

Our family dogs Oreo and Ella are both doing well, they have adjusted pretty well to Liam, and they are excited for the humongous new backyard that awaits them at the new home!

Happy Holidays to all! As we cherish all of you for being such important people in our lives, we thank you for the love and friendship that you have given our family.

Love Always,

Nate, Janelle, & Liam

Liam 5-8 months!

Liam has been such an amazing baby! He started "scooting" around 61/2-7 months so a couple of months ago, and he is hard to keep up with already! He also started eating some solid foods this past month, and he loves his meats and potatoes like his daddy (: He can sit up on his own, and stand on his own with close supervision (: Just tonight he actually fell and bumped his head at our family christmas party ): He got his first little bump, and I took it harder than he did of course! Liam has also finally started to hold his own bottle just within the past couple of weeks! Liam has been a very determined teether! He already has 4 bottom teeth and 4 upper teeth, and now that he has had a few weeks of not teething I think they are back for more, a couple of his molars are starting to form under the gums! The last couple days he has been running a fever and and has been a little uncomfortable from the teeth!

We Are Moving!

The past few months have been a busy time for our family! We put our house on the market in the beginning of November 2010 and sold it a few weeks later. We are now preparing to move towards 130th & Pacific area and are planning to close on January 21st, 2011!
Below are a few pictures of our new home to be!

Liam Giggling at 4 Months

Liam is getting bigger everyday. This video was taken on Monday night, August 2nd 2010. While I was changing Liam into his pj's I sneezed and Liam began to giggle! The night before was the first time Liam giggled this long and it happened when we were getting ready to go on a walk and Oreo was barking and every time Oreo would bark, Liam would giggle...I was sad that I missed taping that, but was happy when he did it the next night and it's now here on this video(:

Liam 2-Months Old ~ May 22nd 2010

Liam and daddy at the cabin when he is 2-months old!
Sporting a sun hat about ready to go sit by the lake.
Liam at his 2-month check-up~ He looks a little concerned about the shots he is about to get ): He did so great though! On this day he weighed in at 12 lbs. 13 oz. and was 23 & 3/4 in. long!

Liam just being a happy baby boy!
These past 2 months with our son Liam have been so amazing! He is fast approaching 13lbs, and is wearing 3-6mo. clothes. He is such a good baby! he is sleeping between 5-7hours at a time at night, and eating about every 3+ hours during the day. The only time he seems to cry or fuss is when he is hungry or tired so he is easily comforted. He is continuing to become very strong and alert.
On May 10th I had to go back to work for a couple weeks to finish off the school year. During the time I was at work Liam's grandmas, Emily and Debbie, and his aunt Michelle were able to watch him. Having them watch him made it a lot easier to go back to work, and not worry too much! I feel so blessed to have them in our lives to love and care for Liam and our family! As of May 24th I was done with teaching for summer break and have been home with him, and have been loving every minute of it! Liam is growing and changing everyday, and I am truly blessed to be able to have the summer off with him!
We are now staring are search and interviews for daycare for the Fall! I feel really good about the options we have so far, and I am looking forward to meeting with them!

On May 2nd 2010 Liam was Baptised into the Catholic Church at Sacred Heart Church by Father Tom Fangman. This was such a special glorious day for Liam and we had so many of our family and friends there to celebrate with us. We thank all of our family and friends that sent all of their love and support!
