Now that the twins have arrived, you’ll be seeing Ellis and Elizabeth here on the website from time to time.  Today I’m starting this journal to share my bundles of joy with all of you and thank you for your support during my pregnancy.  I appreciate all the well wishes and advice for a first-time mom.  You guys are the best fans ever!

    I’ve been watching your shows for years now–you’re very funny. I have been hoping you would take off enough time to have kids– you just seem to be the type to be a really good mom. I’m sure your kids will grow up with lots of personality and life-enjoyment. Keep up the good work. Looking forward to seeing Mommy Sam on the road.

    Samantha and Kevin, You DID GOOD!! Your babies are so beautiful and you look radiant! I know you waited a long time and I think Elizabeth & Ellis were well worth the wait! Enjoy every minute of their “babyhood”, even the sleepless nights, being covered in baby food and formula, etc. because it goes by in flash.

    What beautiful, precious babies! I’m so happy for you and Kevin–and the grandparents, too! I have three grown children, but when I look at your new babies, it seems just like yesterday that I brought each of mine home from the hospital. The time really does go by in a flash! Take time off and enjoy your blessings!

    Your babies are so beautiful! I envy you just starting your family. The absolutely happiest days of my life were when by boys were babies. I never had any postpartum depression, instead I was high on joy! Tired, yes, but I knew how fleeting babyhood is so I savored each moment. I remember standing at my washing machine crying one day because instead of onesies and pajamas I was holding a tiny pair of blue jeans. It goes so fast..time is w/o mercy. Live in the moment!

    After I retired in 2007 I had the opportunity to tour the world with you. Then you were gone. Now I know why. To have your beautiful twins. They are just adorable. Enjoy watching them grow. It is the most important part of your life. What a beautiful family you have.

    I am thrilled for you both! They are precious! I have followed your shows over the last 7 years and have enjoyed your wit and adventures. I was so excited when you became engaged and hoped that one day soon you and your husband would become parents. Both were meant to be and just seemed to fall into place…and both were worth waiting for. Wonderful!!!

    My how things change. Years ago when I was at home with my newborn I’d watch you on TV jetsetting all over the world carefree and fancy free and think, “Man, she’s really living the life.” Now, I’ll bet you’re realizing, albeit very tiredly so, us moms are really living the richer, fuller life for sure! Congratulations, and welcome to the mommy club!

    Put new diaper down and change diaper on top, that way when you are ready you just pull out old one and then plop down on fresh. Just pull front of new one up and you should have less sprinkler like events. Used to work in newborn nursery in hospital, works like a charm.

    Just Googled you today..enjoyed your show and wondered where you went. Congrats on the twins! My twins are almost 26 years old…Yes! They do get easier the older they are. Both married with carrers in medical field. I didn’t think I would survive the first year! Bless your beautiful family! Watch out though…double the trouble when they become mobile. Cereal and shortening make a huge mess with two of them involved !

    Adorable!! Congratulations!!

    Yes sleep when they sleep .. drop everything, no matter how important it seems, and sleep.

    Other best advice we ever got was no binkys (pacifiers). This way they can find their own fist/fingers to suck on and not start crying out endlessly for the binky at night. If they already use them, ween them quickly.

    Enjoy. Enjoy. The love you feel will only grow.

    I see the boy is winning against inanimate objects. While I’m not a mom I remember that my mom always put a washcloth over my brother’s…ya know…whenever she changed his diaper. Now if only his potty training had gone as well.

    Just saw you on HSN and you had had the twins, you look marvelous, so happy for you both. They are absolutely beautiful and you all have such love in your first family photo. We have followed you for so long and SOOOOOO happy your family is finally complete. No advice, you will figure it out, just hold on, enjoy the chaos, it will go faster than you think. Blessings to you all.

    Twins… as a father of twin fraternal girls who have just stepped across into the (cough) wonderful world of “TEEN” [a magical, mythical land where dad transitions from cool to … uh … well … less cool and the sudden flood of hormones provides an interesting diversion from rational thought] I congratulate you and, with true sincerity, I wish you all the very best. May you find rest in the first two years and may blessings abound.

    Hello Samantha and the best to you, your husband and the twins. I wondered why we had not seen you on the travel channel as in the past and now I know. Hope to see you again as we really missed your trips and the excitement you exhibit about travel. Many of the places that we have visited out of the country were inspirations from your show. Thank you Samantha and can’t wait to see you again.
