I've been trying hard not to fall in the baby comparison trap--they're gonna get enough of that in their lives--so each child's unique qualities and experiences stand on their own. Yet it's a struggle, especially given just how different each pregnancy was: Sam's gestation was rife with crisis, Sadie's was fundamentally smooth sailing, even with Ericka's pain and other problems at the end. Of course they both were ultimately delivered by c-section and share perhaps 50% of their genes, so there's lots of stuff they have in common, too!
Anyhoo, I was poking around early Samuel pictures for his edification and mine:
Baby Zeetoo has a lot more fat--amazing what a few weeks of gestation can do!
Sadie getting the once over before the pedes scarpered off.
Big Bruzhoo was a preemie and much smaller than his sister, so needed an assist for a few hours.
Sadie and Mommy waiting to be given a green light to head down to Maternity.
A brief moment with Sam before he was taken to NICU.
We wondered for a long time if Sam would ever grow hair.
No such concerns with our girl.

Neppy and Kayla find comfort in each other as another two legger upends their lives.
The adventure continues...
