He looks completely different now, it's crazy!
Max and Sam were born in the same city, but in different hospitals.
Therefore, our experiences were a little different.With Max, we were able to stay at the hospital over night.
With Sam, we had to get a hotel and loosely abide by visitors' hours.
We would try to get there around 10 in the morning and leave after we fed him around 8 at night.
Honestly, it was kind of like a vacation.
We ate out or Wes would go get us some food.
We did a little shopping for our surprise bundle.
We had two nights alone at a hotel.
It was a sweet, sweet time of rest before our new reality kicked in.
There is something about being in a hospital that makes me feel insecure about how to be a mom.
I felt like I was being watched...not in a bad way, but maybe because of the situation.
People are curious and perhaps a little intrigued with this newly-formed relationship.
We learned quickly that Sam pouted his lip like a pro when he cried.
He loved his pacifier.
He was a crazy good eater.
And he loved to be held.
We were slightly nervous about our 2 hour car ride home, but the pacifier saved the day.
We are so thankful for the time we were given at the hospital to love on and get to know our precious Samuel .
