Samuel David Banks

Wow! It's been almost 2 months since I've been on here. I apologize to those of you who actually care. So get ready because there is about to be a plethora of posts coming your way!!! I hope you can handle it. So I'll start with an event waaaay back in February. The third to be exact. Sam and I blessed our beautiful baby boy that day and our families came out to witness our little baby receive the most beautiful blessing I've ever heard. Sam is the best daddy in the world and hearing him ask his Heavenly Father for all the things he wishes for his baby was so special and it brought tears to my eyes.

We bought a little white shorts-suit for his special day, and he looked so stinking cute in it I couldn't help but laugh every time I looked at him. Thanks Mom and Dad, Heather and Annalisa for all your help with that little outfit. You are all the best!!! These pictures are from when he was 6 weeks old, so it's funny to see them now - as he is now a LOT bigger and chunkier. And has a little more personality! But here they are:

From the left: my dad, mom, brother-in-law Michael, sister Shelley, me, David, Sam, Lisa's husband Dee, and Lisa (Sam's mom). Sam's dad Jerry was also there for the blessing, but he had to cut out early before we took pictures. Thanks for being there, Grandpa Banks! We love you!

Wow! Sam--your mom is a babe. I can tell you're related--wait, that didn't sound right. They are two separate, and appropriate comments.
1) You look like your mom
2) Your mom is very pretty.

I'll stop now.

Ha ha ha. Jenna I can always count on you for a laugh. And I agree on both accounts. And I don't separate the two.
