In what has become a family birthday tradition, the following images and content are dedicated to Liam on his birthday. They will also embarrass him a bit I'm sure, which is just part of the reason why we do it. Julie's wonderful Liam Birthday Post is already up and working its magic.
Like his parents and sister, Liam bonds with all kinds of animals...

|It's not all about the Benjamins with Liam.|
|Will he be a birder? Probably, but we're not forcing it.|
|Liam knows how to relax.|
