I can’t believe that as I’m writing this my sweet little third baby is already almost a month old! Reid Matthew Sams was born on July 13th, 2014 at 5:37pm weighing 9lbs 7oz and 21inches long! He was a big guy! He has been such a blessing to our family already. We didn’t decide his name until we saw him and it means “redheaded gift from God.” And boy does he ever have red hair! Beck is completely smitten with him and is continually covering him with hugs and kisses. Ellie likes him too but she’s not as into him as big brother Beck. ;) Everyone told me this, but there really is just something about the third baby. I guess it’s because I’m so much more relaxed about things this time around. And I know how quickly these days go by. I am enjoying every single second with him and I want to remember every detail. Time with him is FLYING. I can’t believe he’s almost a month old. Don’t get me wrong, I am super busy with three little ones and my hands are full but so are our hearts. If you remember from this post, I had said that I felt like the Lord was promising me that Reid would be a help and a blessing to our family, well, He did not disappoint. God has certainly fulfilled His promise by blessing us with him! I can’t wait to see the little man God has designed him to be.
I knew it would be quite a challenge to do my own newborn photos. Let’s just say that Reid is a pretty big fan of mommy and if I’m anywhere near him he wants to be in my arms, which is fine except when I’m trying to photograph him. So, most of my images of him are snapshots into our life rather than posed images. These are the ones I love anyways so I’m ok with that. :) If you follow me on Facebook, you’ve already seen quite an overload of our new love. But get ready, because I just couldn’t narrow these down any more. Here are some shots from our first few weeks with Reid. Enjoy!
