Lucky #13

I've never really had a lucky number.  But, I guess if someone asked me, I'd say it was 26 because that's the day of my birthday.  That number comes at the end of my email address & was my number in high school lacrosse, but that's about the extent of my passion for it... And, it hasn't really brought me any luck per se (lacrosse success not withstanding). 

Anyway, I officially have a new favorite number - 13.  I'm pretty sure this is supposed to be "unlucky," but it certainly has not been for me.  Most obviously, Sam was born on JULY 13th.  But, funny enough, we also found out that we were going to be parents on the 13th - of November.  (Which also happens to be my dad's birthday).  So, as you can see, we've had some pretty big blessings come on this day.

Sam was born exactly eight months from the day we got our + sign.  The whole pregnancy felt LONG; but now that he is here, that fall Saturday morning seems like just yesterday.  We can hardly believe we made this little cutie, and he is ours to keep... already.  Crazy how that works.

Ok, I better stop my blubbering (bare with me for a few days folks).  Here are some pictures Howard took of Sam on his second day of life.  (Man, I love having friends with photography skills.)

We think he gets cuter every day!

P.S. I just realized that 13 + 13 = 26 (math isn't my strong suit, ok).  Maybe I was onto something all along.


  1. What a little cutie Sam is. Enjoy every second of him!

  2. Aw, he's adorable! Look at those bright blue eyes!

  3. 13 is my lucky number! I was born Oct 13th, my first son was born Jan 13th.... it's a good day of the month! :)
