This past weekend was one of my favorite kinds. Friday night I stopped by the hospital before going home to get in a few more hugs with my new nephew, Liam. He is the sweetest little thing! Just look how adorable he is.
Our dryer broke earlier in the week. Eric got the part for it on Friday morning and I was so grateful he was able to fix it Friday night. Don't you hate when appliances stop working?!? Thank goodness we were able to get the part quickly and make it all better before we had to hang wet clothes all over our house again to let them dry.
Saturday morning I did what I love to do on a Saturday morning. I laid in bed and caught up on a few blogs while sipping a cup of Teavana's Pumpkin Spice Brulee hot tea. Oh my goodness - this just started my weekend off perfectly!

Sunday morning I rose early in anticipation of going home. We were celebrating Dad's birthday and I wanted to click a few more photos of baby Liam. I had props and banners and high hopes of getting some of those touching baby pictures that go viral on the internet. I mean, I had the perfect model -- Liam is a little doll. Well, my photographer skills are NOT "viral" photo quality! That became VERY clear from near the beginning of our little photo shoot. Probably soon after Liam managed to pee all over me did I realize I am not a good photographer. However, that will definitely not keeping me from trying! Here's a few of the good ones.
I would also like to wish my Dad a special 77th birthday today! He is the most honest, hard working person I know. I was once in a pageant and the judges ask me who I admired most. Without any hesitation I said my dad. If I was asked the same question today, my answer would be the same. Happy birthday, Dad!
