My Baby is SIX?

Monday, June 2, 2014

This moment. Six years ago my oldest became a big brother to the funniest, sweetest, kind hearted boy in the world. Liam has brought so much joy into our lives. He completed our little family and makes us laugh every single day. Oddly enough my dad called it the first time he ever held Liam. He looked into his eyes, looked at me and said, "this one... this one's gonna be funny."
A few weeks later, I had the sleep deprived emotion driven response of,  "I don't know him at all. I only know that he has changed everything and I'm so crazy right now that I can't even love my oldest well right now, much less give him the time he needs with his Momma." The first five and a half weeks of little Liam's life were some of the most challenging I have ever faced. It was a scary dark time for me. One that I am forever grateful to be on the healing and redeemed side of. I didn't like who I was those first five weeks. But once the hormones began to regulate, he started eating well and began sleeping - finally sleeping for more than 20-30 minutes, the love poured in and it hasn't stopped since. 
Liam makes every day better for whomever he spends time with that day. His adventurous spirit and carefree soul is infectious. We would be lost without this our bundle of laughter that turns six today and we celebrate the mighty ways that God has already used this little warrior in our lives. We love you Liam. You are simply amazing and hysterically funny.

Go squeeze your littles. They grow up too fast. xo
