Whoa, that was quite the game on Sunday! Liam & I snoozed through the first half (we didn't miss much), but were up for all the excitement in the second half and overtime! On game days, Liam loves putting on his Russell Wilson jersey (just like Daddy's) and his game face! I love his spontaneous "Go Seahawks" or sometimes just "go football"! Sunday was a beautifully sunny day, so we took the opportunity to play around outside before nap time!
Liam's coordination is always improving, and I would say that we are close to actually being able to play "catch"! At least his catching is far better than his throwing.... I'm not sure we have a future quarter back among us, but perhaps it is too early to tell! He loves watching Conor & I throw the ball around, and every once in awhile Liam will hike it!
He is at that perfect age where he loves learning new things and is incredibly impressionable! Right now we are trying to slowly introduce him to a variety of sports, so we can see where his skills & interests lie. Sports were such a huge part of both Conor & my childhoods, so we want those same experiences for Liam. Please please please let our child be athletic!!! Just this winter we've already taken him ice skating and gotten him on a pair of skis! He obviously loves football and has recently gotten into basketball as well. He has a small nerf hoop (and one in the tub too), but I think this Spring we will be upgrade to the real deal! We have an RV pad on the side of our house that will be perfect for Liam's first basketball hoop! He'll be starting some pick up games before we know it!
Although we are still a few years off, I am so excited to get Liam in organized sports! I started in 1st grade and loved it! My parents frequently coached my teams in the early years, which is something I really hope to be able to do for my kids as well! It's fun to imagine the little athlete that Liam will become and see what he truly excels at! We need to start grooming him now, so he can show Finn the ways once he is walking...
Liam will rocking all of his Seahawks gear for the next two weeks
as we prepare for the Super Bowl again!!! Go Hawks!
