Sam's first few days



I have developed an understanding of and sympathy for women with new born babies - now I see how difficult it is to get anything done and the feeling of perpetual exhaustion.


Sam is into EVERYTHING and already displaying quite a turn of speed.




He's an absolute darling but unless he is asleep it's hard to take pictures of him AND be engaged with him and doing whatever is necessary at the time. He will be this little for such a short space of time and I don't want to miss having a record of the first couple of weeks.

  1. Having done the baby thing fully the once (4 years old) and being part-way through the second time (8 months old) I can fully empathise with your situation.

    It will be interesting to see how Sam's colouring changes over the coming months, but one thing's for certain - he's always going to have the ah factor!

    I love the pose in the last image.

  3. This is causing serious difficulties in this household.....daughter pestering father to become a dog owner again and mother's eardrums split because of the decibels (argh, oooh) emitted when viewing new photos!! Thanks for the warning on these last ones! I'm not immune to the pics either he is gorgeous!!!

  4. It won't suprise you to hear I love the nose shot. Just my kind of picture! I assume that is mud and not gravy he is wearing on his beard?

  7. Lovely comments, thank you all, especially friends who haven't commented before (hello Jen!)

    Sarum - if you want any assistance get daughter to phone me. By the time I have given her a blow by blow account of the last 4 days she may well not be so keen on getting a dog :}

    CB - yes, it's mud, he hasn't discovered gravy yet but does a good milk moustache!

  8. Love, love, love all these pics - particularly high-tailing to the fence at high speed!

    Bet you're knackered (I remember puppy days at home, but have chosen not to let on specific hair-raising exploits so I don't put you off!) but also bet that you WOULD NOT SWAP FOR ANYTHING!

    It'll be lovely to hear how his personality grows as he does - but it's clear that he has grabbed you both already, despite the hard work!

  9. I love the pictures, specially the one where he's running off to something he's seen near the fence. I bet that you'll soon forget the difficult parts of being "mum" to a demanding newborn and look back at the photos and think "aah, how cute he was" just like the rest of us are thinking at the moment.

  10. I think the first pic is my favourite, you just want to give that cute little face a big sloppy kiss!

  12. You can NEVER post too many puppy pictures. I think it is the blogging equivalent of putting Princess Diana on the cover of a magazine!your hit rate will soar!
