Our 1st week with Sam

It is hard to believe Sam is over a week old! He has been such a good baby so far and looks more like Taylor every day :)

We had his first Doctor's appointment this past Monday and the Doc recommended we put him on photo therapy lights for his jaundice. After 2 days/nights of him being on the lights, his billirubin levels were down low enough he was able to be free!

Taylor has been absolutely amazing with Sam. In the hospital Taylor was such a natural. He knew how to sooth and comfort Sam immediately. There is something so wonderful seeing a man take such pride in his newborn son.

My Mom was here for Sam's first week and can I just say I could not have done it without her! She cooked, cleaned, did laundry, took care of the dogs and even managed to get some good cuddle time in with Sam. I feel so much closer to my Mom after this past week. My Mom always made being a mother look so effortless and easy. I can now say the motherhood thing is HARD. My Mom is just a pro. I want to go around hugging every Mom I see... especially if they chose to breastfeed- that alone deserves an award.

So Mom, thank you a million times for being so wonderful. I am so blessed to have you as a role model and Sam is so fortunate to have you as his Gran Jan :)
