He's here! My both flew past and dragged on all at once. I first found out I was pregnant (at the phantom of the Opera!) then all of a sudden I was 37 weeks, what?! the feeling of my pregnancy flying by was due mostly impart of moving across the country and trying to get settled, and of course having to take care of Danny. However, once I made it to 37 weeks it dragged on! I wanted so badly for him to get here, even if I didn't have all the baby necessities!  I was really upset when he wasn't born on November 5th, I mean come on, "Remember Remember the fifth of november". That would have made for a fantastic birthday.

I couldn't resist the urge to include the clip of the movie. I walked more on that day than my final week combined! I really wanted it to happen today. Whatever, November 10th is a great birthday.

I digress, he's here! (I'll write the details of his birth later) he is so sweet and his spirit and adorable face mean the world to me. I have been able to really enjoy him since the beginning. With Danny I was so exhausted from a long labor and stressed with his lack of breasfeeding I couldn't enjoy his newborn phase. But this time around I'm soaking up every tiny moment. Newborn heaven is real!

This is not to say that it hasn't been an adjustment because it defninty has. When we brought Sammy home I was so worried about how I'd show my love for both Daniel and Samuel I actually cried a little. My heart ached at seeing how big Danny looked now that I had a little newborn.

It was odd. Danny was the same but the way I viewed him had changed. It was as if I wass seeing the world with a new set of lenses. Everything was the same but so different. I know that sounds weird, but that's the only way I can explain it!

It's been a whirlwind since we brought Sam home. Danny was at first hesitant about the baby (choosing to show excitement over a bag rather than a brand new baby) however, now I really think he likes him. He expressed concern over him by offering him a french fry.

One thought that I keep having over and over is that I don't want to miss a minute of my babies! It makes me sad that I can't remember when Danny started singing along with me the Do Re Mi song from Sound of Music anymore. I can still remember his sweet face laying on the pillow facing me singing along to my singing.Cutie pie! So this time around I want to keep better track of milestones and memories. For no one else's benefit but my own really, so I can look back and cherish memories from my kids' baby years.


PS. Post title brought to you by Danny and his enthusiasm for shadows. When he catches a glimpse of his shadow he'll put his arms up on either side and tilt from one side to another saying "Sadow!"
