Mother to Samuel Robert
January 29, 2015
Samuel was our “Bonus Baby” or so we called him. The news of our pregnancy was a surprise. Our kids were 9 and 11 when we found out we were expecting. We had always wanted a third child but so much time had passed we didn’t think it would happened. We so excited to learn that we would be adding a new member of the family. My children helped with names and dreamt of the future they would have with their new brother or sister. The day we learned that our Bonus Baby was a boy, we immediately went shopping and bought the most adorable baby outfits. My son, who is a baseball fanatic, picked out a special baseball rattle for his brother. The two of them also agreed on a stuffed Dumbo for Samuel that would hold a special place in his nursery.
