I am in love. As I sit here writing, next to me on the bed is little Liam—sleeping. His soft breaths; each one so sweet it makes me want to curl up beside him. My comforter is wrapped up close around him since the windows are cracked to let in the cooler summer night air. He is precious.

The other kids played hard all day long with cousins, ran through the sprinkler to cool off on this beautiful day, and ate more watermelon than ever. So after we said good-bye to cousins, we made a quick meal, did a much needed bath time in a snap, and before I could finish praying for them, they were fast asleep in their beds - dreaming of a perfect world of cousins, watermelon and sprinklers I'm sure.

God is good.

P.S. the photo above of Liam and I was taken by my talented & handsome nephew, Benjamin.

Oh Mindy! You made me cry with these sweet words and amazing picture! Liam is such a blessing...praise the Lord for giving you this sweet gift. I can't wait to meet him, hold him, and just listen to him breathe too! Thanks for letting me be a part of your day yesterday! I LOVED it!

What a beautiful picture! I love it... and your family is precious. I can not wait for the day when I can tuck my own precious children in bed and love on them and cuddle with them.
