I have here photos of the first three months, with narration:
Taking him home: SWEETEST BABY. I felt bad for other
moms with babies who cried. A week later I was in their boat.
I loved his little newborn grunts, squeaks, and faces.
Trying to gain control of your body is hard!
His cord fell off a week after he was born. We were excited to give
him his first real bath. As you can see he sure wasn't. Poor thing!
However, he warmed up to them: here's the next bath time. One stoic dude.
We needed to do a newborn photo shoot before, well, he wasn't
a newborn anymore. Jenny did one the day after he was born,
but it was so fun, I had to do one myself!
"Oh, oh, oh, oh."
Tummy time is hard business.
This pic is the winner!
What an angel!
B+W (excuse the poor photoshop job of making Sam's legs into a blanket).
May 4th: Ryker was born. They were so little!
ONE MONTH: No way. Still so little, though!
This is one of the phases I miss. He gave "his first look"
all the time and it was presh. Future model?
We decided to bless the little man at Sam's parents' home.
Beautiful blessing, I know he will be a great man some day.
Spending the night at my parents' house when Sam was gone for a month.
Cousins. Need a pic of Beau and Joseph, too!
This little guy went international. We spent a good few days in Mexico.
TWO MONTHS: Daddy has been gone half my life by now (and boy have I changed!)
It's great having Sam back!
Sweet seeing him with Joey.
I play with toys now!
3 MONTHS: Out of his screaming for no reason phase (mostly).
Like a good friend said about her little girl, I want to freeze him where he is, yet when he is in a new phase, I change my mind and want to freeze him then! I'll have to take his 4 month pictures soon. Packing the newborn and 0-3 month clothing was sad, but hopefully Joey will have a brother one day who will use them, right?
