Introducing … SAM

Img_0583

We were expecting Sam to show up around December 28th last year. Instead he decided to come 3 weeks early. Ashlee’s blood pressure was way to high so she ended up having a c-section on December 7th. Best day of my Life! It was agony as all the family waited to hear that the baby and she were fine and that there were no more complications. After a couple of hours, which seemed like days the proud daddy called to say everyone was great. We were all beside ourselves to see Sam so Daryl face timed with us and we saw our precious baby boy for the 1st time. After what seemed like another few days we all got to go back to Ashlee’s room and see and hold Sam. I have to say I was a bit of a baby hog as I got to hold Sam 1st and I totally forgot for a few minutes that there was anyone else in the room but Sam and me. These photos are Sam’s 1st photo shoot. They were taken about 12 hours after he was born.

No one noticed until late the 2nd day after Sam was born that the tag from WakeMed said baby boy but had a F (for female) on his tag.

Daryl was excellent at making baby burritos.

Not even 24 hours old and he is so expressive! That has not changed one bit. Yesterday he was 10 months old. From newborn to 10 months in a blink of an eye. I have been trying to spend as much time with him as I can as I know how fast it all flies by. So I will update you on his progress along with the house in the coming weeks.
