1 Month Already!!!!

I can't believe that 1 month ago I was sitting in the hospital, waiting to meet me little boy! It has been a great month with ups and downs. (He's been all the ups!!!) I can't complain at all with the little guy! 

-He sleeps though the night...well at least 5 hours! (And now in his cradle, which I have a hard time with.) 
-He is so cuddly!!!!
-His back is ticklish!
-He sleeps though noises!
-He only cries when he's hungry! 
-He's started smiling at me!

So serious

The only frustrating thing is throwing up, but only if I nurse. So its bottle feeding only now, which really bothers me. He is very healthy though and is about 10lbs now!!!

We love this little guy so much!!!! He has brought so much joy into our lives!!!!

Once a Mom...Always a Mom

I have loved the last 3 weeks of my life, in fact it's been the best 3 weeks of my life! But I could not have done it without my Mom! She has been my maid, cook, taxi, nanny, and my hero! She has come over almost everyday to help me in some way. She brings me breakfast before work, or comes over at night to bathe Sam for me. She's done my laundry and some grocery shopping. Has cooked us many meals and feeds Sam so I can eat. I haven't felt overwhelmed at all and I know it's because my Mom has helped me so much! I know that if I had to I could do it all on my own, but I am so grateful that I don't have to!

I am so glad that I live so close not only so she can help me, but so that my kids can have a great relationship with this wonderful woman! I truly have the worlds greatest Mother!!! Thank you so much Mom and I love you tons!!!!!

New Years and a visit from the Stringham's!

What a year 2011 was, and we were kind of sad to see it go, but we also hope that 2012 will be just as awesome! We actually stayed up this year! Our friend Ryan came over with an awesome dinner and hung out with us. (Andrew came too, and left about 11) We watched movies and World's Dumbest and played some poker. Quiet and mellow, but what do you expect from new parents! :)

Sam with 'uncle' Ryan! :)

This is how Jon feels about the baby!

On New Years Day, we were able to spend some time with the Stringham's! (Cousin's to my Dad) We love the Stringham's!!! Sam also got to meet Great Grandma Brown for the first time!

Sam with Grandma Brown :)
Cousin Leslie with Sam and Juliet

Some of you might remember this post: "What's in a name?" Where I explain how we picked Sam's name. This is the Sam I was talking about! :) Is he not super cute!!!! :)

These pictures were taking a couple of days before New Years, but it's still the Stringham's :)

Sam brought Sam some very special stuffed animals, Puppers and Hammy

This is Emma-Rose, Sam's older sister. She is so good with babies! :)

And this is their Dad, John. We just love John and we were so glad we got to visit with him!

We hope that everyone had a great New Years and that 2012 is a great year!!!
