Double the Trouble

Hello everyone! This is finally Leah writing in on the blog – thanks to my mom for updating while I was in the delivery room.

Everything went really well yesterday and we are now the proud parents of TWO boys – Big Brother Samuel and Little Brother Joel. He is a real cutie and is already winning over everyone’s hearts (and he had a lot of sucking up to do to certain grandparents that were wishing for a girl).

Samuel came up this morning to visit and he did so well meeting Joel for the first time. He sat right up next to me while I was nursing Joel and signed “Eat”. He held him for a little while as well and did pretty good – doesn’t seem to be too afraid or territorial (yet).

Thank you to all of you who have been praying for us. We could definitely feel your prayers last night. Everything went so smoothly and surprisingly fast. Here are a few pictures from last night and this morning:

Congratulations!! Leah, I hope you don't let Edward talk you into having 9 kids so he can have an All Star Cub Team! Grace says don't forget to get Samuel a present because he's a big brother now. Love you all lots.

Congratulations! Joel is just as cute as Samuel. We are praying for you on the whole jealous thing. It usually doesn't start for a couple of days in our house in the past. When they figure out that the baby is not just visiting.
