My mom, Stephanie and Mike Ross, and Judy Rosenberg got to see Samuel as he was whisked off to the NICU. My dad was getting a minute by minute report over the phone while he was out entertaining Irene. The next few hours are a bit of a blur to me, but I do remember being taken upstairs to see my little man. Luckily Peter was with Sam and captured these pictures and a movie of his first “bath”:
And if those pictures are not enough to make you smile… here is the video of his first bath:
All of those pictures were taken before I got up there. Finally, around 10 pm they wheeled me in to see Sam.
Here is what went on when mom got to see and touch Sam:
For those wondering about Sam’s name- here is the quick background:
SAMUEL: named for my mothers brother who was killed while riding his bicycle in 2004 as well as my father’s father- just an amazing man whom I admire and love.
WILLIAM: named after Peter’s father and my mother’s father
