happy first birthday, samson rex!


the last few hours have been incredibly difficult for me. when people tell me not to be emotional about my babies growing older, i don’t like it. just enjoy it, they say. well of course i am enjoying it. i’m enjoying it best i can. hooray! you are one! i will say all day long today! and i’ll be happy and proud of my little man and show him off and feel excited! but this birthday also comes with a big lump in the back of my throat. it’s just hard to accept that we’re already here. i thought the first year flew by with eleanor, but with a second baby? it’s like the speed of light. and i hate that. sometimes i feel guilty that there weren’t as many books read one on one with samson this first year as were read with eleanor during her first year. sometimes i feel guilty that his milestones– rolling over, clapping, crawling, weren’t made into the kind of spectacles we made eleanor’s into. of course we were thrilled with each and every one, but it was just different. my attention is always split and it makes me feel guilty.

but samson is such an easy going baby. always happy. always grunting and giggling with the biggest grin across his face. he’s laid back in so many ways and as his mama, i so appreciate it. sometimes i just can’t pick him up as quickly as i’d like because my arms are full of his sister, and he seems cool with it. like he understands and appreciates me anyway. i sure am thankful for this. it’s helps the guilt, even if just a little.

i nursed samson to sleep last night crying the entire time. but don’t fall asleep yet! i’m not ready for this day to come! wait! my baby! stay a baby! i’m just not ready….

but may 30th is here, and you, my love, are one!

so samson, my sweet little miracle who is my cuddle bug and big boy and darling mister and beautiful baby, i cannot tell you how much i love you. how much you make this family feel complete. how much you mean to me.  thank you for bringing so much joy into our family. thank you for forgiving me for not giving you the full attention i think you deserve but instead thank you for giving me so many hugs and cuddles and open mouthed kisses throughout the day. thank you for being so easy going and happy. thank you for being patient with me. and with your papa and sister, too. thank you for making me want to be a better person and mama every single day.

i cannot believe we are here. it feels like yesterday you were born. you have four big teeth with two more coming in and you took your first two steps without any help the day before yesterday.  i am so proud of you! happy birthday, baby boy!

i love you, mama.


here’s a little video we shared last year with family and a few friends when samson arrived. i love watching eleanor sign ‘baby’ when she meets him for the first time. it’s like you can already feel the love she has for him those first few seconds of meeting him. i’m so thankful they have each other.

and PS! if you’d like, leave a comment for samson below! i would love to hold onto them and someday share them with him. (i did this with eleanor’s first birthday and those comments from you were so sweet and beautiful. i look forward to sharing them with her someday, too.)

    Hey Samson! Happy 1st birthday! Looking at you and your sister’s photos on Instagram is always the highlight of my day. I’m so happy and honoured to be able to watch you grow up. Sometimes I wish I’m one of the toddlers going to the playgrounds your lovely Mama always takes you to, so that we could be friends!

    P.s. You’re so cuuute!

    Love from Malaysia

    HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAMSON! Watching you grow into the beautiful one year old you are today has been an absolute delight. You’re smile could light up even the darkest of nights and I have yet to see a smile that matches yours.

    Dear Samson,

    Happy Birthday! You don’t know me, but your smile and all the beautiful adventures your mamma posts on this blog make me hopeful that one day, me too, I will have such amazing kids as you and E are. I already have the founding stone – a great husband. Cross your baby fingers for the rest, please :).

    Baby boy, play hard, lough hard, make this world yours and of course, enjoy your birthday cake!

    Love to you all and thank you Naomi for you blog, you are such an inspiration.

    Happy birthday little boy!

    This beautiful poem for Samson, I just recently discovered it!

    “You are my I love you”

    I am your parent you are my child
    I am your quiet place, you are my wild
    I am your calm face, you are my giggle
    I am your wait, you are my wiggle
    I am your audience, you are my clown
    I am your London Bridge, you are my falling down
    I am your Carrot Sticks, you are my licorice
    I am your dandelion, you are my first wish
    I am your water wings, you are my deep
    I am your open arms, you are my running leap
    I am your way home, you are my new path
    I am your dry towel, you are my wet bath
    I am your dinner you are my chocolate cake
    I am your bedtime, you are my wide awake
    I am your finish line, you are my race
    I am your praying hands, you are my saving grace
    I am your favourite book, you are my new lines
    I am your nightlight, you are my sunshine
    I am your lullaby, you are my peek-a-boo
    I am your kiss goodnight, you are my I love you

Happy birthday Samson!

  17. tRiSh

    Happy first birthday, Samson!
    It’s been a pleasure watching this first year of yours unwrap and seeing all of your smiles and little curls, you are one of the cutest little baby boy and I’m thankful for your mama and papa and big sister, Eleanor that they share a little bit of you with all of us.

  18. Kristina

    You know, I am coming up upon the birth of my second child, a boy, and I already have a three year-old daughter. These past few months I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t a little ambivalent about the thought of having another child, changing our family dynamic – and will I be able to handle it again? I can say that this video came at such a good time. It filled my heart with warmth to see a sister and her brother and to remember that THAT is why we’re doing this. So thank you for sharing.

  19. YUWI

    Oh God, i do feel jealous with you family. So far as the only child my parents have, i sometimes wonder how that feel to have brother or sister. Especially brother, and that makes me grow up mostly with the boys. Enjoyed it!
    So, Happy Birthday to my-future-lil-bro. Wishing you all the best. And I hope one day we could catch up somewhere. Much love from Bali, Indonesian (You guys should come here anytime!) xoxo

  20. Jaana

    Beautiful post, Naomi – I’m sitting at work trying to hide the tears. What a sweet, smiley, happy boy you have! I grew up with a brother only 11 months younger than me and I feel like I’m getting a glimpse at what life must have been like for my mom. At the time he was born, she also had a three year old – I think she must have been a little bit nuts – but I’m so grateful that she had us so close together. I have seven siblings, but my brother and I have always been best friends, and I can see that will be the same for Eleanor and Samson.

    Happy Birthday, little Samson! :) My special wish for you is that you grow up to be a strong, healthy, kind, happy, creative rockstar (just like your mama). :)

  21. Sinead

    This is hands-down the sweetest video I’ve ever seen! Little Eleanor blowing baby Samson a kiss is so precious :-) Happy birthday, little guy!

  22. Erin

    Ok, I am sobbing. What a sweet post for him to read one day! Happy birthday Samson!

  25. olivia

    Happy 1st birthday cutie Samson! I’ve been following your momma’s blog since before you and your sister were born. I hope to be half the mom to my children that your mom is to you. You are so very lucky. It’s been a joy watching you grow. It seems like just yesterday I was waiting and waiting to see if you were born yet. I’ll never forget it. Your family has touched our lives in so many ways and I consider myself lucky to get to watch you grow. I hope your day was filled with love and happiness, and some cute clothes because we all know you got the style goin’ on. Love from MN. Xo, Olivia

  26. Marissa

    Oh. My. Goodness. That video!! Too sweet,

    Samson baby, you are so very blessed. What a wonderful family you have. Look at the love from your papa and mama, the adoration from your sister. What big and beautiful hearts they have. How lucky to be surrounded by this. And I think you’ve had something to do with this ;)

  27. Meghan B.

    You just voiced all my feelings as of late. My little man will be 5 months tomorrow and my daughter is only a month apart from Eleanor. I totally understand how you feel. Maybe it’s a boy thing, but it’s like they know you’re overwhelmed already and so they come with sweet, understanding little spirits. Oh and you look absolutely beautiful in that video.

    Happy 1st Birthday, Samson!!! I’ve enjoyed watching you grow. Your family and hundreds of strangers have fallen in love with you, your enormous smile, and how freely you share it! Here’s to many more smiles to come :)

  28. Maria Figueiredo


    Just passing by to leave you a big kiss. I LOVE watching your family grow and see what a great mother you are!
    I have two girls of 12 and 8, and I love them like I can’t put it into words, and reading your texts sometimes, is as it was me!
    Samson, you are the cutest boy ever, love your smile and your peaceful face. Hope you will stay like that forever, Happy!!
    Lots of love, from Portugal!

    I have seen you grow to be one years old, and it brings me such great joy to come back to this blog and read about your momma’s day to day happenings raising you and your sister. You appear to be the smiliest little man with a great big heart for your sister, momma, and daddy. I wish you the best-est birthday and can’t wait to observe and read about all of your upcoming achievements!

    Dear Samson,

    Selamat ulangtahun! I know you may not understand what I just said as it means “happy birthday” in Indonesian. Well my country is very far from where you live but I am always happiest to see the big smile on your face.

    Don’t grow up too quickly Samson! But if you are, I hope you enjoy every second of it with laughter.

    Your family is truly blessed and I always pray for all of you. Again, happy 1st birthday, Samson!

    Hugs&Kisses from Jakarta, Indonesia,

You’re so handsome and sweet-looking and every picture I see of you makes me laugh. I bet you’re going to grow up into the funniest heartbreaker ever. Take care of your mom and your big sister :)


  60. Ali

    Happy Birthday Samson!

    When my little brother was a child, I may have slapped him around and made him cry a time or two (or twenty), and once aggressively hurled him off of a picnic table when HE was a year old. So-my birthday message to you is that when you are older, remember that even though you and your sister may get into rows (unless, of course, she is much kinder to you than I was), she loves you very much and wouldn’t change you for the world.

    Now 21 and 19, my brother and I are the best of friends-we only have to glance at one another to know what the other is thinking, I would be lost without him. Best wishes to you on your birthday!

    Happy Birthday to cute Mr. Samson! Based on your posts, he really does seem to have such a wonderful personality, and isn’t patience such a huge blessing as a personality trait? So happy for you and them that Samson and Eleanor are such good friends. Siblings are a wonderful wonderful part of life!

  65. Carla

    I’ve been following along since early marriage days, and I just have to say you two have created such a beautiful life. Happy Birthday Samson!! You come from good genes!

  66. Jezamine

    Ohhhh I just teared up reading your blog. My baby girl is 3 weeks behind Samson and she really is the best thing that has ever happened to me. She fills my heart and makes me smile every day at her new antics and her mischievous face. Truly a blessing having her in my life. I know June 18th will be a very poignant day and I too will be breaking my heart as I put her to bed! My baby is not a baby anymore. But also looking forward to the next chapter of our life. So excited!!

  67. Happiest of birthdays to you Samson. Know that you are loved. Know that the world is in your hands. Know that you can do all you can possibly dream of and more…

  68. Alessandra

    This post is so precious and so sweet, a mother’s love that anyone can see! I admire it greatly. Samson, you adorable little boy, you are so loved by you fam bam, and {anyone I’m sure of it} who comes into contact with that little smiling face! Happiest of birthdays! The world is at your fingertips :)

    Samson! Happy FIRST Birthday!! I love watching you and your family grow. I’m about to be a sophomore in college and I’m about as far away from knowing what I want to major in as I am from the moon. Which is a pretty long way off. But the one thing I do know (and have known for a long time) is that I want to experience the miracle of having a family that I helped create. Crazy to think about it, but you’ve inspired me in so many ways and you’re just a year old! I can’t wait to see what else you do as you grow up! xoxo

  72. Jenny

    Happy birthday you beautiful boy! I love seeing you play and grow and laugh and laugh! Wishing you a lifetime of amazing birthdays! :)

    Happy Birthday little man, your momma loves you so much everyone from all over the world knows it!

I don’t think your momma could handle that!

    I’m just doing major catch up on all of your blog posts of late and I laughed when I came to this one. My little boy, Donovan, and Eleanor were born on the exact same date, and now I have an almost 2 week old that was born on Samson’s birthday too! Our kiddos BOTH have the same bdays. :) Love your blog and glad you all seem to be enjoying a beautiful beginning to your summer!

    Happy belated birthday handsome Samson!! I have truly enjoyed every smile of yours that your lovely mama has posted on her blog!
