6 weeks

So my little Sam is 6 weeks old. He's been such a sweet baby & we have enjoyed every second of it! He is as good as he is chubby!
Can you believe that we spent Joshua's first 6 weeks in the ICU?
I much prefer laying around the house holding my new little bundle, to standing bedside for hours on end (and all that that entailed).
But, I would do it again for Joshua, without hesitation. I love this kid so much!

fun at funderland!

Yet again our amazing support group put together one heck of a party! This was our 'End of Summer Bash' & it was more fun than you could imagine! It was held at Funderland, which is basically an amusement park for little guys. We rode rides until we were blue in the face (excuse the pun), ate pizza until our bellies hurt & enjoyed shaved ice until we got a brain freeze! It made for an amazing evening!
I think this was the only ride they wouldn't let Joshua on & he wasn't too happy about it. He stood there & watched his sisters zoom by, screaming loudly & longed to join in the fun...but rules are rules & he was just too short. Maybe next year!

(The always hilarious Gina pointed out, if you look closely at this picture you'll see that the sign says the ride is not for people with cardiac conditions, this was posted on every ride at the park...oops! luckily no mishaps!)

He rode the merry-go-round, but it wasn't nearly as exciting as the mini roller coaster.

Then we were off to take a spin in the cars. Josh felt like such a man. He insisted on sitting in the driver's seat, & also that I keep my hands off my steering wheel. HE wanted to drive!

Later he ditched me for a hotter chick. This little cutie came up to him & asked if he wanted to ride the fishies with her. It was maybe the cutest thing ever! So the two of them rode the fishies off into the sunset...literally, they rode the fishies until the park closed. It was true love!

What an evening it was! Food, fun, friends & fishies at Funderland, the makings for a perfect Friday night! (okay, I'll stop with the F's already.)

mr. mom

Joshua loves his baby, I mean really loves his baby! I think these pictures do all the talking...

One day Sam will appreciate Josh. Right?
