Samantha is doing great! She had her two week checkup on Friday, and everything went well. I have a little eater on my hands:) A far cry from my experience with Bobby. She has already surpassed her birth weight, which is the goal of the two week mark:) We are still trying to figure each other, but overall, I have no complaints. She is a perfect little girl and we are very lucky!!

Almost two weeks old

Both my babies asleep on me....what a joy!

She's Here!

I am so excited to say that Samantha Grace arrived on Friday January 15, 2010 at 12:07 pm. She weighed in at 8 lbs and was 22 inches long. We are home now and slowly adjusting to life at home with two little ones.

Things went much better this time around for me, which has been wonderful. I was up and out of the hospital bed Saturday morning, and even walking around. For those of you that remember, this was a complete turn around from how things went with Bobby's birth. And Samantha has decided that she likes eating:) Another total difference. And I must say that nursing is SO much easier than pumping and all the trials that we went through with Bobby.

Speaking of Bobby, he is doing really well. He has his moments of jealousy, but overall, he is really accepting his role of big brother with a smile on his face.

Samantha is a pure joy, and I for one, am totally in love with my little girl! I'll try to keep posts coming. It just seems harder to take as many pictures this time around:)

The nursery is done....

I took a few photos today before the battery ran out, so unfortunately, they aren't the best, but I think that you get the idea. I still need to get some "art" for the walls and some type of area rug...but again, it is ready for the little lady, and I will add things as we go:)

We're almost ready...

T minus three days and I think that we are just about ready for Baby Girl's arrival. I will post pictures of the nursery either later today or tomorrow.

PS. Scroll down to see pictures of our Christmas.


Yes, this post is very long overdue and behind. I have been having technical issues with my computer and have been very busy trying to get things ready for baby girl's arrival.

We had a wonderful Christmas in Wilmington once again this year. Although busy visiting everyone, we were still able to enjoy everyone's company, and really enjoy Bobby's excitement and joy for the season.

Bobby was so excited by everything that he got this year, and I have really enjoyed watching him play with each new toy. WE made reindeer food for "Runo", cookies for Santa, and just enjoyed all the Christmas fesitivities.

Once again, sorry that it is so late in getting on here, but better late than never:
