The Day We became Three

You awoke me with a pop in the middle of the night. Great at popping bubbles even from day one. But a whole month early? Your parents were so prepared for you...

You had us hooked. And you grew quickly into a chubby, happy little guy with a smile for anyone who looked your way.

And to those who didn't look your way, "Say What?!!"

You usually got at least a smile.

Always ready for a quick snuggle...

You're so shy, I don't know what to do with you...

A doe-eyed obsessor of Thomas ...

with a lovely gaze for your Mom

Happy, happy birthday, my sweet 8 year old Wonderboy!!!


Just know that Mommy and Daddy will always be your Wonderwall.

Happy Birthday Liam!

Maya LOVED Thomas, too, and when she outgrew him, she sold the set online for a pretty penny!

Happy Birthday to your sweet boy - I hope it was/is the best ever!!! He is so cute.

I used to carry/keep my twins in a basket like that when they were tiny - so cute!

See you soon - Have a good weekend - Kellan

What sweet photos! I love the name Liam. I was opting for that name, but my husband vetoed it. We settled on Neil (after that Canadian folk-rockster).
