Welcome, Bradley!

Ben and I spent today playing with Bradley.
What a miracle this adoption is for our family.
He was bored with the whole affair...
Phoebe was very curious.
Maybe she was wondering why Bradley's
clothes were changed so often.
New babies have to figure out the basics.
New parents have to figure out the basics, too.
We are concerned that Phoebe is having
big sister issues.
Are you my mommy?
Where's the one with the big ears?
Check it out:
Ben Stephen, Ben Samuel and Bradley Samuel.
Hopefully the swing will mean some
sleep for 2 parents tonight.


  1. Great pictures! So I almost just typed ... I think it's neat they they are all B.S.'s (but that sounded really bad)!

  2. What a cute little guy! We can't wait to meet him.

  3. he is so beautiful!!! Congratulations!

  4. I love the picture of Phoebe curiously peering up at her new baby brother... I'm so happy for Sam and Melissa!

  5. Kyle says "Cute pictures!" (Bradley and Kyle have matching cowboy blankets from Aunt Mary, so Kyle thinks Bradley is a keeper for sure.) We're so excited for you Sammie and Melissa.

  6. This is so wonderful. Congratulations. How do you reason with a dog?

  7. Yes, indeed, he wore all three of those outfits while Dewey and Papa Ben were here. (He likes to tinkle on himself.) And there was even another outfit after they left!

  8. so glad SOMEONE posted a pile of pics!! as a friend of melissa's who never sees enough of her, it is much appreciated!! congrats, grandma & grandpa!!!

  9. Thanks for posting more pictures. We are so happy for you all!
