The Bucket

It's amazing how little Sam is. He sleeps in a small Rubbermaid (TM) bin with a foam pad in the bottom. It's really easy to carry, light, and best of all, free! Last night Ellen sent me to the guest room to sleep...I'd been getting behind and apparently it showed in my demeanor. So, 8.5 hours later, I'm a new man. And now she is sleeping...

I love the craziness of this new life. As tiring or strange or inconvenient as it might be, the little man is worth all the effort.

It's so great to be a family. To be Daddy and Mommy (though after almost two weeks of life Sam still has trouble with enunciation). This is the greatest of all things. It gives me hope. It makes everything just a little bit better.

And all the free food our friends keep bringing over is great, too.

Oh, it is so sweet to be parents! I love seeing the photos and my how the house has changed since we were last there. What a wonderful (and crazy) change but like you said, sooooo worth it!

Big hugs from the Anderson's
