pictures! I’ve got so many that it’s hard to narrow them down…..usually kids and babies make cute pictures. I’ll try not to post all 300 of them or however many I took. Some are duplicates so maybe you’ll only get 200 of them, HA.

This one was in the hospital right after Sam was born, with Kathryn and me.

A few more are on the extended page so click through for the ones I’m posting today…..

Kathryn tends to like black and white some so I changed this one from color when I got home. In the hospital so he still has a cap on!

Bringing him home from the hospital…..Katelyn walked up to them and said “hi baby ssshhamm!”

It didn’t take her but a day or so before she was asking to hold him…..wonder how long it’ll take before she decides to try to hold him on her own!

Feeding babies

He slept really good while I was there, especially in the daytime! I think that’s fairly normal for little babies though and Kathryn said he’d slept some 4 hour stretches at night since I’ve been gone. He has a little birthmark on his cheek; Katelyn had something similar on her face or eye and hers has faded for the most part….they’re hoping this one will too but the dr. couldn’t tell them for sure that it would.

Katelyn showers him with kisses and gets down beside him to play with him!

This is one of the last pictures I took before we left Saturday morning

I took this one of Kathryn just a day or 2 before Sam was born…..I never would have thought she was having a 10 lb. 5 oz baby! I wish I’d taken a picture of her before I left to show you how skinny she’d gotten in about 10 days time. She was eating plenty because I was cooking! I guess she got her Dad’s metabolism plus she’s tall (5’10 or 11)…..SO NOT fair!

    Beautiful! I love pics of baby’s too so you can post those any time and I won’t complain. He’s adorable. I especially like the one where mommy and daughter are feeding babies. :v)

  2. motomom Says:

    How fun! Sounds like he is already settled in as a part of the family.

  3. jen Says:

    I think that baby is absolutely adorable. And Katelyn is going to be such a great big sis…..like you said she will probably want to hold him alot. And Kathryn is just beautiful. You are so blessed and I know you miss them all.

  4. Lauren@Baseballs&Bows Says:

    How wonderful! I love the first picture where it looks like he is leaning his head towards his mommy. So sweet!

  5. Debi Says:

    He is just such a gorgeous little fella! I’m with Susanne…you just post as many pics of that gorgeous guy as you want…I couldn’t possibly tire of baby photos!

  6. Robin Says:

    What a sweet baby boy! The last picture you posted of him makes him look so much older – he looks like he is a couple of months old already!
    You have a beautiful family!

  7. Stacy Says:

    Aww, you can post more! He’s so handsome and Katelyn looks so cute with him. She’s going to be a great big sister. I didn’t know he had a little spot on his cheek, has it faded any since birth? I don’t remember Kat having one, but that was a while ago 🙂 They’re all great pictures, post more!

    & grandmother!

  9. Becky Says:

    Kathryn looks so beautiful, before and after. And Sam looks healthy and strong and well-loved.

    I think my 2 favorite pics are the first one, with you and Kathryn; and the one where Katelyn is feeding her baby while mama feeds Sam.

    Thanks for sharing. They all look happy and glad to be on THIS side of it all.

    What a beautiful family. Mom, daughter and grandkids!! Thank you for sharing your photos…I look forward to seeing more!

  16. Claire Says:

    SO CUTE! I love the picture of the two of them lying on the floor in the same position. I didn’t even pay attention to the hemangioma on his face until you mentioned it. I had two little ones…one of my arm and one of my leg. Katherine is definitely blessed with that metabolism…E is too!

  17. Nancy Carson Says:

    Precious… I know it must have been hard for you to leave NC! Kathryn looks just like you in the picture and what a beautiful family you make. Keep us posted with more pictures! This is a blessing indeed.

  18. Kara Reed Says:

    What beautiful babies (well, baby and big girl, I guess!). Will be looking forward to watching them both grow through your blog!

  19. Lynne Says:

    Those are great pictures! I can’t believe that Kathryn had just delivered in that first picture – she looks terrific and rested!

    I left you something special on my blog.

  20. Karen Says:

    He’s just beautiful. He looks so much different in the last picture — it’s amazing how much babies change so quickly in those first few weeks. Thanks for posting — I’m looking forward to seeing updates as he grows!

  21. Bev Says:

    I love the pictures. He’s such a good looking fellow, too. Your daughter is beautiful as well. I wish I’d looked that good after each of my kids birth. Thanks so much for sharing them with us.

  22. Dawn Says:

    He is adorable! And quite the strapping young man!!

  23. Dianne Says:

    Ditto to all the other comments . . . what a beautiful family and Sam is just adorable as they come!!

  24. Elizabeth Says:

    Yep. The pics are cute! I think I’ve seen most of those. Will have to see your whole album maybe at Thanksgiving. Looks like ya’ll had a lot of fun. Katelyn looks much bigger than the last time I saw her! And Sam just looks big.
