As Tori Spelling prepares to welcome a brand new baby girl into her family next week, the 35-year-old actress is also welcoming son Liam, 14-months, to toddlerhood. In a new blog entry for Graco Tori said that Liam is already displaying some hallmark toddler behaviors — like working the crowd and mimicking his mom and dad, actor Dean McDermott.

Tori said tradition is important to she and Dean as they grow their family. The couple hope to carry on traditions that they had when they were children, like reading Goodnight Moon to Liam at bedtime, as well as start traditions of their own, like nightly family dinners. That’s where Tori said she will someday "have an open dialogue about life" with their children.

Another tradition-in-the-making, at least for now, involves the morning wake-up routine of their son — Something Tori singled out as a daily highlight.

When he’s not hanging out in his bumper jumper — which Tori said is Liam’s favorite place to burn off some excess toddler energy– Liam is busy exploring and learning about new things. Seeing the world through a child’s eyes has been a revelation for Tori and Dean.
