Where did my baby boy go??

Today was a day full of things that made me realize my baby boy is no longer a baby...

*We played at the park for over an hour this morning, going from the swings to the jungle gym and slides. He climbed all up and down everything on his own and needed just a little bit of help on the slides. He doesn't quite understand he needs to pick his feet up yet so his shoes don't stick.
*He walks EVERYWHERE. All of a sudden a few weeks ago, he just started walking everywhere. I don't even think I have his first real steps on video it happened so fast. Bad Mom right here.
*We went to the waterpark at the YMCA this afternoon with his best girl Olivia and her Momma. He still wanted to do the butt-in-the-air crawling on his hands and feet until I showed him he could walk in the water too. So then, holding my hand (insert heart sigh), he walked everywhere. And even learned how to crawl up a big netted thing up to the slides. So crazy.
*He uses a fork. I know, weird. But he really likes using it and is pretty good at it!
*He stole my Chick-fil-a milkshake tonight. I didn't let him drink a ton but when I did take it away he had the saddest face I have ever seen. Big pouty lip and everything. When I gave it back so he could have another sip (come on, what Mom can resist THAT face??) he laughed his bleating lamp laugh and smiled a big toothy grin! Basically, he was calling me a sucker.
*He does the movements from the book "From Head to Toe"...he especially likes the gorilla thumping on his chest.

Liam does millions of cool things everyday that make my heart melt...like when we say our prayers every night and he lays his head on my shoulder and then gives me a kiss. Seriously. Heart melting just thinking about it :)
