Things Liam Says:

I've been keeping a list in my phone for a while now of hilarious things that Liam has said and done and I decided it was time to share them with you.  Liam is at an incredible age, he is learning and growing at a rapid rate and we are so excited about embracing the person that he is!

Common mispronunciations: what Liam says=translation

squeeze=sleeves (as in: "pull my squeeze down, momma")

That's taste=that's tasty



eye hatch=butterfly kiss

uncle smooch=uncle scrooge

starbucks dress=my work aprons

I choked=vomit

My nose are leaking=my nose is running

Funny conversations:

Ryan: Jude, don't be a jerky jerk. (I think he was deliberately being mean about something).
Liam: dadda, Jude's not a jerky, he's our punkin.

I was singing along to a song playing on my phone...
Liam: momma, don't sing right now, let your phone sing.

He bit down wrong on a chip and it poked his gums, he refuses to eat potato chips to this day, if you offer one he will say, "I can't eat chips, that will make me very poke."

On thanksgiving we walked down to Ryan's school for dinner with the international students.  Liam was so excited to "walk in the darkness" (it was getting dark at 4:30pm at this time) and kept talking about it all day.  Then he told me that "God said let there be light, and daddy turned on the phone" (we use a flashlight app often).

Hilarious story from that thanksgiving dinner: some students got up at the front of the room to talk about why we celebrate thanksgiving in America and Canada (not everyone there was from a thanksgiving celebrating country).  When one person was finished everyone clapped and Liam whispered to me, "momma, I think they're clapping to me." Which was cute, then when the next person was speaking he leaned over and said, "I think I'm gonna go up there and talk," next thing I knew Liam was standing at the front of the room.  I was laughing so hard I couldn't move to go get him, and wanted to see what he thought he was going to do.  That student finished talking, while Liam waited patiently, then he got down on his hands and knees and crawled across the room, twice.  Easily one of the funniest things he has ever done.

Proper Irish/British Child:

Of course the children here speak very properly with darling accents.  Liam doesn't have an accent yet, but has picked up on some of the patterns of speech and in general, speaks very properly.

Some words he says often are: certainly, I suppose, and well done
