Happy Half Birthday, Samuel!

We can hardly believe that it has been six months since Samuel's birth. The last six months have been such a blessing with this little guy. He is one of the happiest and easy-going babies I've ever met. Even in the midst of figuring out all of the food issues he is having, the Lord has given him a happy disposition (more on the food issues in another post - the Lord is providing answers - Praise Him!!).

When he smiles, his whole face lights up...it is precious. He loves watching Lucy and Ben play, and would love to join them. He isn't much of a comfort nurser, but loves to snuggle. He is a great sleeper, though he has been waking more frequently the last few weeks. Of course, we know what is causing that - he cut his first tooth today!

We have all been blessed by Samuel being added to our family. And though the first six months of his life flew by, I felt like we were able for the first time to truly treasure this short amount of time of him being a newborn and younger baby.

Happy Half Birthday, Samuel!! We love you and thank Jesus for creating you and putting you in our family. You are a blessing, sweet one. :)

Yes, 1/2HB cutie-patootie. Y'all know I am forever changing my mind, but Samuel surely looks like his big brother in this pic.

He is precious! I can't believe he has his first tooth. Izzie didn't cut her first until she was nine months. Still no signs on Si. Can't wait to see how much sweet Sam grows in the next 6 months!!

WoW! What a happy lil' guy. He smiles with his whole face, and you can see the joy in his eyes.

Happy Half Birthday, Samuel!
