A Week of Milestones

Seems like we’re always discovering new turning points that mark Liam’s progression and this week was kind of a biggie since we hit not just one, not two, but three milestones!

The first big event was Liam starting swim classes.  He’s had 2 lessons so far and is progressing well.  Although it doesn’t always seem like he’s listening to his to swim teacher, it’s obvious that he is hearing her because we’ve noticed changes in the way he swims outside of class.  He’s kicking and using his arms much more when he swims.

The second big event was that Liam graduated out of his carseat to a booster seat today.  He had outgrown his old carseat in every direction, so we decided it was time to move up.  I’m finding some challenges with this already though—we had to have a talk today about not unbuckling the seat belt just because the car stopped.

The third big event is that Liam got a library card and checked out his first 2 books at our county library!

This has just been too many milestones in one week for me.  I feel like my little boy is growing up way too fast!


  1. Awww, that is awesome! I remember how excited my kiddos were to have their very own library card! There is power in having your own bar code!!

  2. Adorable – and wow – what a great week!! Daniel did alot of looking like he wasn’t listening in swim lessons too, but it’s amamzing what they can take in while doing silly stuff!! Liam sure is growing fast!!

  3. Too Cute!! Anna also went to her first movie this week and it was Toy Story 3. She loved it! I think the popcorn was her favorite!
