Oh boy…I’ve been gone a while.
But I’m back! And I’m a mommy!
Two days past my due date I went into labor and 34 hours later, Samuel James entered the world. 7lbs, 1oz and 21 inches of pure sweetness.
Our new adventure had begun.
We named him about an hour after he was born. We had two names narrowed down months beforehand, but couldn’t decide. I had hoped that I’d ‘know’ when I saw him, but I didn’t! We talked it over for a few minutes and just decided. I was still unsure, but baby Sam it was! And of course, it’s totally him now. I’ve thought about the other name since and it wouldn’t have been right for him.
Our awesome photographer Stephanie of s.w.g. photography took newborn photos of Mr. Sam a few days after he was born. Here are a few of my favorites!
The last 8.5 months have been the most challenging and rewarding of my life. Whew…just thinking about it overwhelms me. So thankful to God for this sweet little bundle and thankful he’s given me the strength to make it through!
I hope to be around a little more now!
