we'll keep him

I've said that the newborn stage is not my favorite. It still isn't, but knowing that this is our last baby, I'm enjoying the small things a bit more. It makes those moments in the middle of the night just a bit more tolerable and I'm savoring the snuggling knowing that they grow up so quickly.

Our family is enjoying this new little guy, especially the girls. They are absolutely smitten with their brother and can't wait for him to grow up and play. Poor guy is going to have 3 mama's.

Here's some of my favorite moments of the last two weeks.

Our last family of four picture. The night before we had Sam. We were at Multnomah Falls

The morning after I had Sam. The first snuggle of the day.

I love this shot. It's like she's saying, "get your hands off my baby!"

Oldest and Youngest

the relaxed look

peacefully sleeping

Oh Kate, my eyes started tearing up with the picture of Sam on his side sleeping. I could watch babies sleep all the time. Probably because it's the time they are so peaceful.

OMGosh I LOVE all of these pictures!

What a fun family time at the falls before Sam arrived.

LOVE the one of Sam and Weezie!

LOVELOVELOVE the one of him on his side and the one of you, Lily and Sam!

SO glad that you're enjoying these moments! ((hugs))
