Yassy’s note:Liam’s first year: Day 159 – Day 162

In the previous entry titled “Yassy’s note: Liam in NICU;day 8- day 14“, I wrote Liam came to our family about 3 weeks early (36 weeks and 2 days) and he has spent next 3 weeks in NICU.

He was tiny little baby; 18″ tall, weighing 5 lb 6 oz…

Day 159..

The new one he is practicing along with roll over is reach and grab toy near him while he is on tummy;moving to the side by bearing the weight one side to the other.I also practice with me in place of toy. When I call him “O-i-de (come over in Japanese)”,he makes great effort to come closer to me and it makes me feel great that he thinks I am the important person in his eyes.

Liam loved i-na-i i-nai- ba (Peak a boo) using my red monkey blanket this morning after bath & Milk time.

He was so smiley with the game,I wanted to capture his huge smile but I have not being able to capture the moment with the video yet since he does not smile as much or he simply stares at the camera as if what is this thing right in front of me even though I place my face right next to the camera..

Too bad… Maybe someday…

Liam Day 159.. Smile of the day..This is what keeps me smiling every day:-)

Day 161..

My parents in Japan sent him presents plus some kitchen gadget to make solid food for Liam in the future,and amulet for his health.

He is inspecting his Christmas gifts a little early.

He loved them all!

Then, just now, another ding dong door bell and his aunt&uncle in USA got him big Christmas present!

What a day for him!

Liam Day 161 days old.. inspecting Christmas present from Japan..

For us, the best Christmas gift in 2014 was Liam, who we thought would be impossible to have one:-) He will be loved very very much not just by us but also by others surrounding him.

Today is rainy and chilly..

When we needed to go errand, Liam wore fleece racoon footie with Racoon knitted hat.

At the grocery store, my husband was carrying him in ergo and, Liam had such a fun looking around interesting new person,new stuff in the store.

While he was on the bench with his daddy, and I was in the line of cashier to checkout,some people stopped by and talked to them.

I know there is a saying “a puppy is a chick magnet” but I think,in our case, “Liam is the chick magnet” for my husband,lol.

He seems to get lots of attention when we go out to shop etc..

At the baby store, some staff notices us from pregnancy time and they are kind of watching over his growth as well, and they talk to us and comment like “Wow, he got big”, ” he got more hair now” etc..

Maybe he is too cute to pass by without talking to him,lol.

Day 162..

I weighed, and measured Liam’s height.

He is now 13.5 lb,and head size is 39cm. Height remaining the same to the last month;61cm (about 2″).

He is not getting taller than last month but gaining weight..

Stay tuned for more Liam story..
