My Bashful 10 to 11 Month Old

Well I have really dropped the ball with blogging.  My charger for the computer broke so we have been out of service, but now we are back in business.  So to catch up Liam is 11 months old today!!!  I don't know how this happened so fast.  He is such a big boy and is going through a independent phase that is a little difficult.  I have to hold him down with my legs to change his diaper and get him dressed. Most of the time he still gets away.  He loves crawling up the stairs and I am trying to teach him to go down backwards but he gets so mad if I turn him around.  It is one of the most stressful things everyday preventing him from throwing himself down the stairs face first.  Our home is split level and its really hard to keep the stairs blocked off on the bottoms and tops.  I cannot wait for the blessed day when I don't have to worry about him and stairs anymore.
  He officially has 8 teeth and loves to use them...especially when giving mommy kisses.  Ouch!  but I love it anyways!  I feel like I am constantly feeding him and all he wants to do is eat.  I'm having a hard time thinking of new foods for him that are simple, healthy, easy, and that he will like.  There's nothing more frustrating than taking the time to prepare food for him that he just turns his head and dead bolts his mouth shut.  
One of my favorite things is when we meet new people Liam gets super bashful and cuddles up to me.  It makes my entire day/week/month/life!  Seriously any cuddle time with this little guy makes me the happiest mommy in the world and I just want to freeze time.  I love it!  
Anyway life is pretty great with this little guy!  I love him more and more each day and can't wait to watch him discover new things and explore.  It is truly the best!
