It's so hard to believe that Liam is 6 weeks old already! Aside from some terrible reflux/GI issues, he is doing well. He was 10 pounds, 2 ounces this week and continues to get a little chubbier each day which I love! I love his chubby cheeks...so kissable! :)
The boys and I had a fun time with a little photoshoot...enjoy! I just love these three.

I am blogging to let all of you know about an annual event, "Portraits of Hope" this Friday evening. It's a silent auction featuring the stunning photography of David Sacks and it benefits my favorite non-profit organization Covenant Mercies. Covenant Mercies supports and helps orphans in Africa through a variety of means. It really is the best organization doing this right now. We've had the blessing of sponsoring two little boys through Covenant Mercies for several years now and it truly is a blessing. Please check out Portraits of Hope and Covenant Mercies at http://www.covenantmercies.org/.
Check out the Main Line Today article that calls Portraits of Hope a "must-do".
James 1:27 "Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world."

Owen picked the strawberries and then ate them. :) His basket was almost empty.

Liam is growing! He was 9 pounds, 3 ounces for his one month appointment and the doctor was very pleased with his weight gain. It's a relief to know that he's gaining weight so well, because his reflux is still very bad. We are going to try to up the dose of his medication and see if that helps. If not, we will try another medication. Hopefully, we will be able to get him a little more comfortable. I feel so bad for the poor little guy! He is growing well, though, and he is very strong and almost rolled over yesterday! He's also starting to smile and it melts my heart!
Liam's older brothers are still very much enjoying him which is a huge blessing. They love to kiss him and hold him and help change his diapers and help to burp him. It's sweet and fun to see. Even though I hope that we get a little girl someday, it is a lot of fun being a mom to boys.
Their laughter and energy keep me going! :)

Owen loved to kick his feet and pretend he was really swimming. :)
The favorite: the frog slide!
Relaxing in the hot tub...my favorite part!
