Samuel is One Month Old.


In his 1st month, Samuel:
Was born on Sunday, May 23rd, and 5:12 p.m.
Weighed 7 lbs and 4 oz.
Was 18 inches long.
Had a head full of jet black hair.
Was said to look exactly like his Daddy...
Except for his button nose!
Was teeny tiny!
Was such a calm baby.
Cried very little.
Was on a 3, 6, 9, and 12 o'clock schedule...
Didn't fit in his Newborn outfit to wear home.
Went home weighing 6 lbs and 10 oz.
Had jaundice.
Had to have his blood drawn 4 times in a week.
Laid in the sunlight to get rid of it.
Took a few hits/pokes from his big brother, Daniel.
Always was losing his bottle and paci to Daniel.
Never spit up!
Consistantly burped twice after every bottle.
Wore Newborn diapers and premie clothes.
Newborn clothes were too big!
Wore baby girl socks... 
Boys' ones would fall off!
Slept only if he was swaddled.
Fell asleep best in his car seat.
Always broke his arms out of the swaddle.
Had an eye infection.
Weighed 7 lbs and 8 oz when he was two weeks old.
Cried when having his diaper changed.
Had his first bath when he was 3 weeks old...
Mimi and Aunt Jessica gave the bath to him:
  without realizing it was his first!
Cried during every bath from then on.
Held his head up on his own.  All the time!
Loved to stretch his legs out.
Was SO attentive!
Weighed 8 lbs and 5.5 oz at 3 weeks.
Was thought to have colic...
Cried every night for 3 days straight from 6 - 9 p.m.
Then, he stopped.
We learned he was allergic to SOMETHING outdoors -
  his eye swelled up one night!
Went to his own church for the first time on Father's Day.
Had lots of visitors!
Slept through many revival services.
Was really wanting to roll over!  Already.

Samuel likes burping not so much.

He had a wicked eye infection.
Boo to those, too.

Sleeps so well...

Samuel loved being held by Anna Laura.

Sweet little feet

First time in his swing...  Bright eyed.

Samuel's sleeping position - exactly how big brother slept!

He is SO amazingly alert!
