Our son Samuel Milo Story was born on a crystal clear August morning. I realize hundreds of thousands of people give birth each day, but Leah's labor was the most inspiring show of determination and physical endurance I have ever personally witnessed. But we made it through, and lying in bed, exhausted, with a new human in our arms was an experience that will always be filled with wonder in my memory.
Samuel is a strong and healthy, and learns a new trick or two each day. For now, we are engrossed in sleeping when we can, leaning heavily on support from family and friends, and spending hours a day cuddling and staring at the little guy in amazement. I can't wait to see who he will become.
