Revenge of the Nerds

When A + S = Baby:

Nerdy William Nerd

Liam decided the calculator was his new favorite toy. We also figure William will probably end up with glasses of his own, but until then, he just loves to play with ours.

We hope you’re not surprised by his nerdy tendencies; after all, you know his smart, sometimes socially awkward, book-devouring, Sci-Fi-watching, Big Bang Theory-loving parents.

To encourage his lifelong love of learning, I took Liam to the Los Angeles National History Museum since my brother Daniel and his wife Karalee are in town visiting.

Daniel, William, and the T-Rex

He wasn’t too sure about the T-Rex.


But William LOVED hanging out with Karalee.

And he did leave with a few new friends.

And we also found out what William may look like if he ever decides to grow hair.

William 029

William VERY vocally expresses his strong dislike of certain things such as:

Church (hopefully he’ll grow out of it, but at least we’re in the library)

William Garff 001

Loud Noises

Tummy Time (don’t let his cute face fool you)

The Snot Sucker


William 006

If his grown up personality is anything like how he is now, Liam will be a cute, impatient, nature/animal-loving, cuddly, silly, sensitive, musical, girl-crazy kind of a guy. It will be interesting to see what traits stick around!
