1 month

Well, we are getting accustomed to having another person with us all the time now. Tomorrow (Friday), Sam will be 1 month old. He and Crystal are doing very well. Of course, like all new parents, we have been taking pictures all the time, only some of which I will put on here!

Daddy changing a nasty diaper.

Mommy, Sam, and Maddie.

Sam is growing like a weed. At his 2 week checkup he had gained 8 ounces and grew an additional inch! Most babies only gain back to their original birth weight in the first two weeks and ours gains a half a pound! He went from eating about an ounce at a feeding at the hospital and the following days to eating about 4 ounces at 2 weeks old, and now at 4 weeks old, he's chowing down 6 ounces per feeding! I'm gonna have to get the boy a steak knife soon! :)

Sam likes to sleep on dad.

And Maddie likes to give "high fives".

On Monday, Crystal took Sam to have his "1 month old" pictures made. She is going to take him every month for his first year to have pictures made. She was able to pick up the pictures from Monday's session today. And here it is....

Parenthood is definitely a new experience, but I don't think either one of us would trade it for the world.
