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. :)
