SIR Liam

Today we had a dedication and birthday party for 'the boy'! a house full of precious friends and family. it was a rich blessing for us to have our son celebrated . .
Andy and I renewed our vows as a part of Liam's dedication. . promising to raise our son in such a way that God would be honored; committing to love one another and honor God with our marriage and friendship as we navigate parenting!
A friend of ours; Chris Payne did the dedication; and told us after we prayed for Liam that he wrote 2 words down this morning as he was preparing for today. . Strength and Courage.
We spend so much time as God is knitting our babies together in the womb praying for our babies, praying for health and protection, but also praying about their name.. . truly believing that a name is to speak blessing over the child.
Liam means 'unwavering protector'. So it is no mistake that today as we prayed for our son that God has made him Strong {'it is God who arms me with strength and makes my way perfect' psalm 18:32} and is making him Courageous {Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the LORD your God goes with you; he will never leave you nor forsake you." deuteronomy 31:6}

{thanks to my sweet friend sharon for catching these moments today. . .while we enjoyed our baby boy!}
