Four days old!



Things honestly could not be going more smoothly for us. Last night Samson was an AWESOME sleeper. Dan and I put him in our bed with us and we had to wake him up both times to eat in the middle of the night. We woke up feeling quite rested this morning!



Elijah has been very sweet to Sam, always wanting to hold "it." :) He hasn't shown any signs of jealousy yet, but from what I hear, that will come.



I feel like Samson is the perfect little addition to our family. I worried so much about how we would all adjust and so far it is going better than I ever could have dreamed. I'm so in love with him already.



So far, here is what we know about Samson. He does not like having his diaper changed (AT ALL). He loves to sleep. He has the softest skin on the planet (I've been nibbling on his neck as much as he will let me). He LOVES TO EAT. With Elijah, we were always super concerned about him not eating enough. With Sam, we are concerned about not having enough food available for him.



I have to mention what an amazing husband I have. I have not changed ONE diaper of Sam's yet. Dan is so good about making sure I am comfortable (c-section pain still owie) and that I can focus on my main baby duty (feeding Sam). I feel so lucky with the three boys God has given to me. I could not be a luckier wife/mama.

(This is Sam's trademark one-eyed peek. He likes to open his right eye and check out what is going on around him.)



Elijah is napping, so I am going to grab my littlest cutie and head upstairs for a nap, too. Thanks for checking in and for all of the prayers and well wishes. We love our friends and family!!
