Moogie Moosky! (aka Samuel)

Samuel turned a big SIX today, hard to believe, especially for such a tiny little guy. He is a delightful bundle of silliness, giggles and great ideas! (a lot like his brother Levi ~ the two are nearly inseparable!) On one hand, it doesn't seem possible that six years have passed since Samuel decided to make his appearance a full 30 days before his due date, sending our family into a bit of a dazed tailspin for a few weeks. At 7lbs, 9oz . . . he was one of the biggest "preemies" the NICU had ever cared for. Those were a very long 11 days (driving back and forth to the hospital for most of my waking hours), but once we got through those crazy first few weeks, it seems impossible to think about (or remember) our family without our little Sam-Sam! The third little brother welcomed and adored by a big sister who had been patiently praying for a sister! We wouldn't trade him for the world, such a blessing he is! Happy Birthday lil' mister!
