My mom, Stephanie and Mike Ross, and Judy Rosenberg got to see Samuel as he was whisked off to the NICU.  My dad was getting a minute by minute report over the phone while he was out entertaining Irene.  The next few hours are a bit of a blur to me, but I do remember being taken upstairs to see my little man.  Luckily Peter was with Sam and captured these pictures and a movie of his first "bath":

Nice profile

Good look at Sam's head

Big hat... little head

And if those pictures are not enough to make you smile... here is the video of his first bath:

All of those pictures were taken before I got up there.  Finally, around 10 pm they wheeled me in to see Sam.

Here is what went on when mom got to see and touch Sam:

For those wondering about Sam's name- here is the quick background:
SAMUEL: named for my mothers brother who was killed while riding his bicycle in 2004 as well as my father's father- just an amazing man whom I admire and love.
WILLIAM: named after Peter's father and my mother's father
