Ten Pound Party - Part 2!

Samuel is 10 pounds!!! He is getting so big - it is incredible! Not only does our little miracle continue to amaze us... he continues to grow. Medically, this is the best thing he can do... get bigger and stronger... and he's doing it :)

The celebration! Of course, Samuel slept through the group photo! In the lobby, George and Olivia had their first taste of cake frosting :)

Uh huh... asleep... right. I see that little smirk!

I knew it! He's totally awake!

Hi dad! Please help me get rid of this feeding tube :)

Mom! That's so embarrassing!

Below... oh how far we've come... go Samuel, go NICU team, go Prayer, go God!

Hey, last night we were at the park with our kiddos and there was this fabulous family there. Triplets! Two boys and one girl. They were 9 years old. They were so delightful and just loved playing together. We thought of your family and what it will look like when you have 3 nine year olds chasing eachother up and down the slide full of laughter. The parents spoke of the drama in those early days and yet the sweet wonderful days that they are enjoying now.

I have no idea how I found your blog but I have been reading it since the babies were born. I just wanted you to know that my NICU babies (three year old twins) pray each night for your NICU babies. I know this is a hard road and I pray that God will give you peace. 10 pounds is AWESOME!!!

God Bless

Whoo hoo! Go Samuel! Glad to hear that things are moving in the right direction.

Could he be any cuter? I don't think so...

Love and Hugs from Illinois,

This is wonderful to read. We are so thrilled for Samuel and for all of you. Can't wait to hear you guys complaining when he's a hefty 20 lbs! ;-)
