happy due date riv boy!

Saturday, December 20, 2014

Today is River Ron's due date! He came 5 days early on my Grandpa Ron's (who he is named after) birthday! Me and my Mom have been hoping he would be born on the15th but didn't think it would actually happen. 
This week has been so wonderful. River is the sweetest little boy and I'm so lucky I get to be his mom. I can't wait to share his birth story soon. It was such a crazy and amazing experience! 

My mom came early on Monday morning and stayed with us all week. She was so helpful when she was here. She stayed up with me at nights, cleaned our bathrooms, cooked for us and the list goes on and on. I may or may not have bawled when she left last night. I love her so much and so does River. I'm so grateful she was able to be here. 

I can't even put into words how thankful I am for all of the support we have we received throughout my pregnancy and since River has been born. The txts and sweet comments mean so much! THANK YOU! We feel so blessed to have such wonderful friends and family. 

Ryan. My sweet Ryan. He has been so helpful and wonderful. Seeing him as a Dad is just magic. 

That's all for now. 

I love my son! 


  1. Sami Jo, you are beautiful! We don't really know each other - I'm Jessie's friend. But I have so enjoyed watching your journey. You such a positive person and full of love and light. Thank you for sharing your story. You were meant for motherhood. Your baby boy is so precious! :)

  2. I bawled when my mom left after Cooper was born too. Hormones are out of control+our moms are amazing and we never want to be away from them. :) Love you so much. So happy that I was able to meet River and see you.
