Because of this lady...

  • Because of this lady I have a beautiful, sweet and healthy full term baby

  • Because of this lady I have a happy, smart and content 4 year old

  • Because of this lady I had a chance to experience what it was really like to be a pregnant lady

  • Because of this lady I had an easy and comfortable recovery from my c-section

I can never repay my mom for all that she has done for us these past 4 months. I'm so grateful you were willing to come and take care of me and my family. I'm so glad that Jack and "Grandma Ann" are now best of friends and have a relationship that can never be broken. "Ladies and Gentlemen" this lady is best mother, grandma and friend I could ever ask for, I thank my Heavenly Father for sending me to her every day. I love you mom!!!!

Busy week...

Well, it's Saturday and this has been one of the busier weeks in recent memory. Work, school for Jack, appointments for Jack, cooking, cleaning, oh and we had a kid (almost forgot about that one).
We all got to come home on Friday evening and everyone is still doing well. The first night home was a little rough. After sleeping for hours on end in the hospital, lil' Sam decided he didn't want to sleep much between the hours of 11 and 1 last night. Mom finally figured out a way to get him to sleep, either that or I was so tired I passed out amidst the commotion and we got to sleep until Jack woke up at 6. I am sure that is will be the first of many adjustments in our life.
This is our last 3 person family picture.

Shannyn's last minutes as a pregnant lady.

Shannyn and I getting prepped for the big moment..can you say "Sloppy Joe, Slop, Sloppy Joe, yeah!"

Sam's first picture (although at this point he was still "Baby boy Florez")

Mom and baby's first interaction
Dad and his new baby boy
This is all he wanted to do in the hospital. Wouldn't even wake up to eat for the first day.
One of the rare awake moments caught on film. They say he looks like his mom.
The brothers meet for the first time. We actually didn't think this was going to happen in the hospital since there was still a flu/RSV ban in effect that prohibited kids under 12 from being there. Fortunately, they decided to end it 2 days early for us and Jack was able to meet Sam at the hospital. So far, so good.
The new and improved Florez family!
All packed and ready to go home
To cap the night off, Sam brought Jack a present for his big brother. You think he likes his new scooter?

And finally here is some video of the little guy...ENJOY!
