The boys meet Samuel

 

Just so you know- this has a LOT of pictures.  I loved them all.

A lady from the hospital had just come in to talk to me about…something…when I heard Isaac’s loud hoarse voice in the hallway.  I interrupted her and told her that she needed to leave because my kids were coming in to meet their baby.

Come to think of it, she never came back.  So let’s hope she wasn’t talking about anything important!

When Joseph met Isaac two and a half years ago, he was happy, interested in the baby, and then proceeded to ignore him for the next year.  (remember when he was shocked when “that baby! hers crawling!”?)

But, this time around, these boys love, love, LOVE their baby brother!

They are constantly wanting to hold him, kiss him, and wanting to look at the fact that “she has no teeth!”  (we are still struggling with  pronouns, obviously.)

(You can see Brian’s newly broken finger in this above picture. Broken 3 days before Samuel was born, and preventing him from completing his “Before Baby To Do List.”  Sigh.)

If the baby is down out of my arms, they are in his business.

And I am trying to perfect the “loving-stiff-arm” move.

Isaac is particularly thrilled about his new “Big Brother” role.

You know how I mentioned that he has a LOUD and HOARSE voice?  Poor Samuel is learning what it sounds like right next to his ear, and without the filter of the womb.

(those meaty hands just kill me with their cuteness.)

But Isaac is quick to tell him, “Sorry I scared you!  I forgot!” along with some reassuring head strokes.

He also kisses “her” two billion times a day.

And- SECRET THAT WE JUT DISCOVERED- when he kisses Samuel, he secretly licks him quickly too.

 

(We noticed the wet hair patches after the kisses)

Also they both love to tell him “It’s okay!  I’m here!” when Samuel cries.

Basically, we all love this little fella like crazy!

(I want to lick him a little too.)
