Mr. Sam the Man is home! He came home yesterday and has been doing amazing. He’s got a few new battle wounds, and a whole new attitude. Not only is he sucking his pacifier like mad, but he’s smiling up a storm, acting ornery, and did I mention… taking (some of) his bottle!? Knock on wood… he’s been taking between 15-30cc at each feed. Compare that to the ZERO he was taking the last two weeks, and let’s just say Adam and I are more than ecstatic! 🙂
We’re so thankful to his nurses and doctors. And especially thankful to our family and friends for all of their support.
It’s funny, but since the boys have been born, we have seen such sincere support from the least likely of places. People I haven’t spoken to in years have contacted us and offered their love and kind words. People we have never met have sent us gifts, cards, food, you name it.
And what’s hard is that some people I truly thought we’d be friends with forever barely ask about the boys.
It’s strange how people deal with things, and it has made both Adam and I look at our lives and realize who we want to be as friends, and why family is so important.
Maybe a little deep for a Friday night? Maybe. Let’s blame it on the glass of Pinot Noir next to me 😉

Hi Trisha and Adam!
I am so glad to hear Sam is doing well! What wonderful news!! I think it’s beautiful you celebrate and recognize all the victories along your boys’ journey. I’ve been praying for you and your family–I will keep doing so. Enjoy your weekend,
Glad to hear the Stibbefam is all together again at home chillin on a Friday night!! What cute pictures of the boys–must say I love the 3 feet one too!!! Hooray for Sam the man drinking and sucking on his pacifier. I’m sure Grandpa Brad is getting excited to get back for another week with his buddies! We’re looking at 6 inches of fresh snow on the ground and wondering once again why we live here!!! Have a great weekend. Love You—Carol
Welcome home, Sam! Great to hear about his “whole new attitude”. Such cute pictures of Jack and Sam – but then they always are! I have to say that I also love the “3 feet” one! Enjoy your weekend.
Lots of Love….Nancy
Cute pictures 🙂 I LOVE that Sam is smiley and giggling now- he is happy to be home and feeling good! Jack looks like he could possibly be 3 ft tall, be growing a tooth and walking by Thursday. They grow too fast!
So glad to hear that Sam is back at home! Yea for the pacifier and the bottle too! The pictures are adorable as always! Grandpa Brad will be back on the scene soon too I hear! Have a great first Easter with your two lil’ bunnies! 😉
Oh YAY!!! I am so, so, so happy for you that everything turned out well and Sam is feeling better! Sounds like he is just thriving and that has got to feel great. Good job mama!
