Thankful for Thanksgiving

It has been a little longer than usual for an update as I have been working 12 hour days on the wards. We were fortunate enough to have been able to have spent Thanksgiving with both sets of grandparents. We went for lunch with Grandpa Dennis, Aunt Bethany and Uncle Tony (Grandma Pat and Uncle Ben were in Minnesota with Great Grandma Rose). Then we headed to Owenton to spend dinner with Grandpa Terry, Grandma Billie, Uncle Adam and Aunt Christie, and Uncle Kyle and Aunt Denise.

Sam is getting very big now. He he grown a lot and is having to wear a lot of 6 month old's clothes even though he is now just 10 weeks. He has almost outgrown his changing table, his bouncy chair and his bassinet.

He is much more aware of his environment now. He can see much farther and will actually try to "look past" you at times to things that are farther away in the room. He still loves his bath time and loves to smile when you talk to him. He is sleeping almost completely through the night now which is a big relief for Leah.

Sam is a very happy baby.

He is still loving his bath time.

Sam absolutely loves his bouncy chair. We're not sure what we are going to do when he outgrows it as it is the go-to for when we want to put him down to play.

Sam is curious about the big world around him.

Sam is a baby on the go!

We're amazed at how strong he is. He has incredible head control for a 10 week old.

Sam still loves to watch football with his dad. I have even figured out how to make him a "big boy seat" on the couch next to me. I tell him about all the players and about how evil the Steelers and Louisville Cardinals are.

It was wonderful to see everyone at Thanksgiving Lunch including Grandpa Dennis.

And it was great to see everyone at Thanksgiving Dinner including Grandma Billie.

Our friend Jennifer, who is a professional photographer, took time out of her schedule to give us a photoshoot of Sammie. I will post the result...
