They're HOME!!!

Mommy and baby are doing GREAT! They arrived home on Wednesday night and baby was able to come home with them.

Samuel is just too cute for words and the easiest baby I've ever seen. He is such a delight to be around. He basically eats, sleeps and poops. That's it. He really is a blessing to a mom who running after an 18 month old.

I was able to go over yesterday and help out... and by helping I mean holding baby. I brought Laney with me so that Tyler would have a playmate. It was an eventful day with 2 toddlers and an infant. I don't know how mother's of multiples do it. I now have a new found respect for them.

Here are some baby Samuel pictures...Enjoy!

I'm an Aunt Again!!!

I am so excited to tell you that I am an aunt again. I now have two beautiful nephews!

Samuel was born on St. Patty's Day at 1:03 am and I was there to witness it all. It was the most beautiful thing I've ever seen. Watching my sister give birth is definitely in the top 5 of the most amazing things I've ever seen. I can't even begin to describe it... and I'm under oath not to by her.

Samuel was born a few weeks early and had fluid in his lungs but the baby nurse was able to get most of it out. He is 7 lbs. 12.6 oz. and 19.25 inches long. He's pretty big for being so early. And he melts me to the core every time I see him. He has a full head of dark hair and the perfect little nose and mouth. Sorry, I don't have any pictures because I was too busy holding him. The labor was hard because the epidural didn't work 100% but the delivery was about 30 seconds long with 2 pushes. Talk about someone who was made to give birth!

I do have a prayer request for him. They think he might have an infection so he will not be able to go home with mom and dad today but the test results will be in on Thursday so we are praying and believing that he will be able to go home then!

Tag...I'm it

What Ifs:

What if I could meet someone in the art world to chat with?
I am really not artsy so I would have to ask them if they could help make me a little more consequence of the art world. In other words...educate me.

What if I could have one wish granted for the benefit of all mankind?
All the good answers were taken so I am going to use "World Peace" Sorry I stole that one from Miss America! Kidding... I would ask that no one goes unloved, unwanted or unfed!

What if I could travel anywhere in the world?
I have always wanted to go to Greece... and not for the nude beaches! I would definitely have to eat at every little restaurant I come across and buy lots of souvenirs.

What if I could live in a period other than the present, for 24 hours?
I've always dreamed of living in 2000's... honestly I've always wanted to be a flapper!

What if I could make over three areas of my body?
I would make my belly smaller... not at this very moment because baby Noah still needs to be incubated until May, My arms cute and small and that includes the armpit fat I've gained over the years, and I would have flawless naturally tanned skinned so that I would not have to wear makeup!

What if I could become an animal for 24 hours?
I would be my dog because he gets treated better than I do!

What if I could bring someone back to life for 24 hours?
My uncle Scott who died in Iraq last August. I would bring him back so that I could say goodbye. I saw him at a going away party we had for him but then he deployed for a year. He was due to come back the week he died. I know he's in Heaven so I want to ask him what it's like.

Ok so Now I am tagging Audit Mama and Nomi.
