took Sammy to our neighborhood pool today. It is our 2nd time there. The pool is amazing, the kiddie pool is huge w/ 2 kiddie slides, lots of water spouts that shoot up water. It is so neat to watch Sam's face. He still really likes being in his pool floatie. So I use that in the big pool, it's great b/c it has sun block visor in it. Today we took out the basketball & noodles and he loved it. His favorite thing to do is take my sunglasses off my head. He has started blowing bubbles in the water, it is really neat to watch him. He is zonked out right now. Normally he goes down for a nap from 130-230, but I took him to the pool from 12-1 so we took our nap around 2 instead, which I prefer b/c it gives me more time b/t the 2 naps so I can take him somewhere w/o needing to hurry home for naptime. Anyways, it's 330 & he is still zonked out! yay for a good nap!
he looks so peaceful too. He has been sleeping w/ his blue bear & blue little lovie & a green winnie the pooh blanket. It is silky soft, so I guess I kind of helped him pick his favorite blanket, b/c he really likes it! perfect size too
tomorrow Sambo is 11 months old! sob! time has flown! his hair is getting so long! he met BFF & duncan yesterday. we took them to the pool. it was so much fun, it will be neat to watch S & D as they grow up & see how they interact.
DS broke out severe again...this a..m i think it's b/c i ate peas last night. i hate this stupid FA crap....i get so worried about him...
he is such a happy little guy. so full of personality. shakin his head NO and he has started rolling balls back and forth to me & stacking toys! i love watching him as i see him try new things!
took DS to the children's museum again today, bought a seasons pass, so hopefully i will take him frequently. we went to storytime & he just crawled up to people to play w/ their feet & legs, it was cute! made the grammy's smile!
he really loved the music, we went to the theatre section & he was beboping all over the place, he didn't want to leave! ooh he is soo cute!!!
on a sad note, we were told to stop our food trial of wheat/soy...we are goiing to do a SPT test at some point they think we should come in soon, but as my DH mentioned to me, why rush it? what's the point? It would have been nice to give DS bday cake that was "normal" but WTH why does that matter? I will just make him a special order gluten free/applesauce cake...
anyways, a little down about that, but I know God won't give me more than I can handle
about 2 wks ago he said his first word besides momma dadda
it was "up" i was showing him, up up up ,lets stand up & then he stood up & said up!
yesterday & today he has been saying duck. he points to his rubber ducky & says it!
also yesterday, during our normal routine of bathtime, i sing & use my hands to "little bunny foo foo" and when i get to the part where it is "bops them on the head" he mimicked me & bopped his forehead!
last but not least, he has now mastered "gimme 5" he was doing it everyonce in awhile earlier, but now, he is really good at it! :)
sammy took four steps!! on july 30
july 31--11 steps
aug 1-- 11 steps.
he has also mastered, blowing kisses, high fives & we are working on pointing to parts of the face. like when i say, where is mommy's ear...he points to my hair LOL, so he is getting there!!!
sooo big! oh & we just started letting DS sleep in only a onesie & OMG he looks so cute & so big! IDK, but we have always put him in footed PJs b/c he doesnt use blankets, but I think he likes this free skin. :)
