We Moved!

So there has been some big transitions for Hank and I. Obviously giving birth to our first baby was the big life change of the year. We sorta compiled upon that by moving to California two weeks after he was born. The drive went smooth and we had an amazing reception when we arrived. Both Hank's parents and a lot of my family live in Ventura county in California so we are feeling very blessed to have so much love around us. Here are some fun pictures of all the people who love and welcomed Sam to California!

What a wonderful welcome Sam received! I guess he is a pretty special guy... I loved the pictures. My favorite was Sam after his bath. Good look this next year in California. I'm happy for you to have so much family around!

We can't wait to come and see Sam too. You all look so happy. Believe me Sam will be one spoiled guy. I love how it is OK to spoil a newborn. You can't love and hold them too much, its impossible, its what they need! And its even better when there are lots of people about to share the cuddling with, because you can have a bit of a break!

I just read your full story on the birth. I'm so glad you posted it all. It's been so long since I've been through it, that it's so great to hear again about everything. You're a tough woman Leah! those contractions can be CRAZY painful, and it sounds like yours were just that! You guys are already the most doting parents, and I just love hearing how excited you both are! Good luck with all the unpacking, and I can't wait to hear more details about everything!
