    Well, I guess it is high time that I started this journal!! My DS will be 2 on October 11 2002. I can't still can't believe that he is a "toddler" and not my "baby"!! I know he will always be my baby, but you know what I mean!

    I got his measurements yesterday. Here are the latest stats~
    Weight~24.0 1/4 Pounds (25th percentile)
    Height~33 1/2 Inches (80th percentile)
    Head Circumference~48.4 cm

    As you can see, my little man is growing up! For past updates on Liam, you can visit his website below

    We are taking Liam camping tonight! Crazy time, I know! We will be leaving around 1am. We have always been spur of the moment types!! Luckily Liam is AMAZING during car rides!! He either sings or sleeps! We just bought a new truck, so now he has these Fisher Price toys that we got as Toddler Toys from Happy Meals at MickeyD's and he will play with them in the truck. One is a bus, his first favorite vehicle, the other is a car, but he calls it a truck!! I am soo excited to go!

    It will be good too, as we will be bringing Spice. She loves camping. It will be soooo hard holding her back from swimming Swimming is her favorite, but as some of you may know, she has Cancer & just had major surgery... http://www.pregnancy.org/phpBB/viewt...84&forum=429&7
    Regardless, I am sure she will have a wonderful time...I think maybe all the fresh air will her her a world of good...Maybe it will clean away all the yucky cancer in her That would be a dream come true!!

    Not too much has been new the past couple of days. We got back from camping yesterday evening. Liam had a wonderful time. He didn't even mind sleeping in the tent like I thought he might have That was a BIG relief!! He had so much fun too. He even went fishing with DH, me, & our 2 friends in a BOAT!! Crazy little spud that he is~he fell asleep once James & Ryan casted out to fish! What a guy ! No wonder I love him sooo much

    Since we've been home, we've filled up his little inflatable pool & when we ask him to "put the hose in the pool, he will go and pick up the hose & put it in the pool to fill it!! Wow, he is so smart! That's my "Little Man Joe"!!

    I found Liam's Immunization and Weight record book, so here is the update I have for him from June 21 '02~*~

    Weight~ 24.0 1/4 pounds
    Height~ 33 1/2 Inches ~Wooo Hooo! 2.5 more inches till he is 3 feet tall!! That is definatly my goal for his 2nd birthday~I'm sure we'll be able to make that!
    Head Circumference~ 48.4 cm

    Liam falls just below the 25th percentile for weight in boy's his age, but for his height, he is above the 50th percentile!!



    Liam, Diane & Spice

    Well I am officially going CRAZY!! Liam stayed at his daddy's last night, and is again tonight . I miss him sooo much. Like an hour after I saw him, I thought I was going to go crazy! I HATE being away from him. Drives me absolutley BONKERS!! DH came over tonight & told me that his Grandparents are going to bring Liam back tomorrow in the am so we can have breakfast together.

    I just got off the phone with Liam & it broke my heart. He cried "Momma" every time James took the phone back from him. Then he sings to me... "Diddle~Diddle~Diddle~Dee". The first "song" he learnt to sing. He also gave me "Puppy Kisses" (sticking his tongue in and out like puppies do!!) And then the normal kisses. God, do I ever have the greatest kid!!

    I am not sure what we are going to do for Canada Day. I really was looking forward to taking him to the fireworks like I did last year, but now there is a fire ban. So, I am thinking about just taking him during the day downtown to see the waterfall off the High Level Bridge. Not too sure yet. There's only so much you can do with a toddler! I'm sure no matter what, he'll enjoy his 2nd Canada Day!!

    We've sat Liam a couple of times on the potty, but he gets real bored after a couple of minutes. He has given TONS of signs that he wants too, but I don't know. Maybe I am giving up too soon & taking him off to early

    *While he's wearing a diaper, he'll hold his Bo~Bo and say "Pee".
    *He lets me know when he toots or poops or pees.
    *He'll bring me a clean diaper when he even just pees in the one he's in.
    *He comes into the washroom everytime I go~& needs to flush(or try to!)for me.

    I've heard that it is harder to train boys, but to me, these sound like positive signs. Does anyone think that it may help to put the potty in the family room & have him sit on it while he watches Teletubbies in the morning(that is the only show he watches.)?

    OH!! Funny story! The first day (I think it was the the 27th of June)that we tried, he was standing at the coffee table without a diaper, when all of a sudden, we hear "Plop, Plop"!! Little Bugger POOPED on the floor! He ALWAYS makes grunts or strains and tells us "POO"...Of course not this time!!

    I just wanted to make this entry to say that Liam will be 2 in 100 days!!! Wow, has time ever flown by!! I pray to God every day that I will be able to be there for THIS birthday...

    Also, today was the first time that Liam ever got "really" hurt. And it wasn't even that bad... He was outside playing & either tripped, or the dog got in his way, but he began crying & I noticed that his nose was trickling blood . He wasn't really even too put out by it. I just held him & let him wash his nose with a cold facecloth. He did end up with a little bump just above his left eyebrow All in all though, he was just fine!!

    I know that I haven't been too punctual with this journal That really upsets me... But, strangely enough, not too much has happened . My Dad...Liam's "Danda" left for work in the Middle East again today He is Liam's best friend!! Liam is also coming out with a new word every day!! It is sooo hard to believe that he will be 2 in less than 3 months! Man, he is growing WAY too fast!!

    I'll try to catch up more tomorrow~I am going to take him for a bus ride in the afternoon to suprise Daddy ! I am also going to take him in to get weighed & measured.

    Wow! It's been over a month since I've written in here. I feel like a bad Mommy Anyhow, things with Liam mhave been pretty much normal. He is like any typical almost two year old...I think !! he is going through another spirt of not eating. I don't know if it is the weather, teething (he only has two more eye teeth to go !!) or what. I feel bad though, because I hardly eat. I hope that he doesn't realize that yet...

    Anyhow, our family Dr. has been wonderful & with my internal problems, and Liam's high chances of getting them, we have been referred to a urologist specialist. See, I was born with 3 kidneys and 8 ureters & two uterus' and extra vertebrae. Yup...freak I know !! anyhow, while LIam was in utero, whenever I would be scanned (all the time), they would check his kidney development. Well, he appeared to aonly have two Then, when he was born, while he was in the NICU, they did u/s on him. He again appeared to have all the right number of parts . Then when he was 6 months old, he went in for a IVP. This came out that he has a reflux problem. Not uncommon in kids his age. They usually outgrow them by the time they are two.

    Now that he is approaching two, it is time for another Cystogram. The thing is, you can "grow" ureters after you are born!! I never knew this. I am sure that he is "normal", but because of me, the Dr.'s want to be sure. He will be going for another u/s & Cystogram October 3rd. Right after that, we will see his new Dr. & he will then give us the results!

    Like I said, I am sure that everything is fine, but I feel sooooo crappy. Like this is all my fault. Had I been born "normal", chances are that he wouldn't have to go through this. They stick a catheter up him. I mean, that is painful enough for a girl. I can't imagine how that would feel for a little guy. The Dr. said that they won't put him to sleep...they use a really small tube, and guys this age usually handle it well. Still, I hate to see him in any pain .

    I am going to keep up with this as best I can until the appointment, but if not, then I will let you all know how his test goes .
