The First Two Weeks Home with Sam and Emily

Sam has had a great first two weeks home. He's now up to 8lbs 2oz and is generally a pretty happy baby. Emily still enjoys being the big sister, although she'd sometimes like to "turn him off" when he cries.

Enjoy the latest pictures, with a bonus video at the end!

Happy Birthday Samuel John!

We're excited to announce that Samuel John Russell was born on March 16 at 4:37 pm, weighing in at 7lbs 4oz and 19.5 inches. Happy Birthday Sam!

Check out our pictures.

Emily 2 1/2 Years

Emily is now 2 1/2 years old, and is getting ready to be a Big Sister. In the last few months, we've had a lot of fun at the Discovery Museum, friend Lily's birthday party, playing outside, and watching Mom's belly grow. Emily is very excited to be a Big Sister and is already planning to change all of Sam's diapers, hold his hand in the parking lot, sing him lull-a-byes, and teach him to walk - or so she says.

We also moved Emily into her "big girl" room. As you can see in the pictures, we kept her new room very gender neutral.

Enjoy our latest pictures, and hopefully we'll be posting pictures of Emily with baby Sam soon!
