Samuel 2 1/2 weeks old
Isaac holds Samuel for the first time
Benjamin holds Samuel for the first time
Mommy loves, loves holding Samuel. This is the fifth time around and you'd think I might be growing tired of caring for infants and have more to do and spend less time holding, but no. I find myself looking around at a mess, totally fine with it, and just enjoy completely rocking my baby.
Oh, little toes, so sweet! As you can see Samuel still has a few scabs from where he had blood drawn so many times from his heels! Poor little guy!
These pictures were taken today. Samuel is 3 1/2 weeks old. I can't believe it!
Samuel has slept with me for the last two nights. It has been wonderful! I love snuggling with him through the night and he sleeps so much better right next to me! He was waking up like clock work every 3 hours in the middle of the night and was often awake for 1 to 2 hours for each feeding. Last night I had to wake him after 4 hours to eat and he only ate for 30 minutes and went right back to sleep! I think this might say something about co-sleeping and the rightness of it!
Samuel's first bath was tonight! (Photos by Isaac!)
