Baby Sam

Jordan came over to take some newborn pictures of Sam, and of course we think they’re wonderful!  If you need family pictures of any kind, you have to call her!!!  Here are a few of our favorites.imageimage imageimage imageimage

  19 days old

Yep, he’s grown.


3 months and 23 months

So silly!

Friday, January 28, 2011

Jack had a pajama parade today, so he went to school with his jammies on.  He kept saying, “That’s silly!”  And when I picked him up, he told me about his ‘papade’.  I love this age!imageWe sent a change of clothes along, so this was the first time he’s used his book bag-he looks like such a big boy!  image

Sam’s birth day in pictures

Wow!  When I look through these amazing pictures, I feel like I’m reliving that wonderful, wonderful Friday in December when we welcomed sweet baby Sam into our family.  I loved every minute of that day!  We are so thankful to have had Jordan with us to capture these once in a lifetime moments for our family.  She. was. amazing!  Of course we will never forget that day, but what a gift she’s given us-the day captured in pictures!  I can’t find the words to describe how these make me feel, so I’ll let the pictures do the talking.  Here are a handful I’ll share-including one of Sam’s first crying breath!  imageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageimageI’m in such awe of this little guy and the miracle that God has blessed us with.

Grandma’s first look

I got the pictures from Sam’s birth day yesterday(much more to come!), and when I saw this picture,image it reminded me of one I took the day Kendall was born.image Linds and I (and Adam, too!) are so lucky to have the supportive and loving mommy that we do!  And these grandbabies-they’re lucky to have such a doting grandma!

“Lemme keep my hat on, mommy-d.”

Ok, buddy. image imageimageUntil daddy gets you!!image Meanwhile, Sam was doing what he does best!image image Love my boys!

For the baby book

As I dressed Sam for church this morning, I realized I didn’t have any pictures of him in the gown he wore home from the hospital-so that’s what he wore this morning. I found this gown before I was even pregnant with him and knew it’s what I wanted the rest of my babies to wear home.IMG_7551

At the park with Kendall

Thursday, January 20, 2011

The boys and I headed to Charleston today to spend time with my family and play.  After lunch, we went to the park and the two big cousins had a blast!  We were taking twelve month pictures of Kendall, too, so Jack had a great time playing with his grandma as well-thanks, mama!! imageWe tried to take a cute posed picture at the top of the slide.  Yeah, not so much.imageimage They made sure to stop by and check on Sam every now and then-I love it.imageAnd Jack showed Kendall how to act like a puppy dog.  “Mommy, what’s Jack doing?  Never mind, it looks fun!”image These two have such fun together-if only we could play more often!image
