Everybody loves Sammy!

We're so blessed to be surrounded by an amazing community of family and friends down here in Charlotte. Many, besides us, were anxiously awaiting the time to meet little Sammy and are committed to participating in and influencing his life. We feel so lucky to have such caring people surrounding our family.

Granny and Grandpa Sanders were able to come down a little early in preparation for Sammy's coming, and to spend time with little G. It was really great to know that Guthrie was well-cared for during our time in the hospital and this past week upon returning home. They've been awesome in providing yummy food and breaks for us to take naps! Thanks guys! (We're already looking forward to Mawmaw Roush coming in a week or so for a helpful visit!)

Happy Granny meetin' the little guy...
And there's Grandpa:

The amazing Tara (Dr. Vick to many). I don't have sufficient words to thank her enough for the wonderful care she provided during my entire pregnancy. She is a special friend of mine and doesn't often take on private patients, but I've been honored with the privilege of being one of the few. Tara sometimes came in on off days to see me, was with us during almost all of our laboring time in the hospital and just plain provided us with amazing attention and care. We can't imagine walking through the process with anyone else and realize that we are so incredibly lucky to receive such individualized and tender care. What a sweetie!

A Guthrie Jr. in the making?

Proud big brother. He loves Sammy too!
G often wakes from his nap exclaiming, "Baby! Baby!"

What a blessed little fellah, indeed!

Love that lost shot of Sammy with G. Guthrie's like, "Oh crap, I'm in trouble, aren't I?"
