Liam Playing with a Gecko

Good evening my wonderful audience,

I just wanted to share a couple of hilarious videos with you that are interested in the Liam aspect of my blog.   Liam has seen a Gecko once for just a few seconds and it immediately ran away.  Tonight as we were getting ready for bed, we discovered another one that was missing part of it's tail.  It may
have been hurt because it was not as skittish as most of the geckos we find are.  This was a great opportunity for Liam to get to be up close and personal with one.

He approached this opportunity with both fear and excitement.  He was most comfortable touching the gecko with a small sticker so that he didn't have to actually feel it with his finger.  In his excitement he got a little rough with the sticker to gecko contact and we were teaching him how to be gentle with the gecko.

After awhile it was running past bed time, and I didn't want Liam to end up accidentally hurting the gecko, so we got it onto a piece of paper and freed it.  Liam was distraught that the gecko went away.  He kept going back into the bathroom to look for it, when we told him it went to bed and that it said good night and goodbye he would cry.  This happened several times before he would finally let it go and go to bed.

I captured some awesome squeals of delight and wanted to share them with you.  Enjoy!
