well this Tuesday Sammy gave us a big scare...he threw up a lot & threw up bile..then got very lethargic, where he was falling asleep as we were stimulating him...it was so scary, we took him in, he had xr taken & during that time, is when I realized how deep my love was for him, i was so worried it is just unbelievable...i love him with all my heart. i would do anything & everything for him to keep him healthy & safe...
it's been a few days now & he is doing better...
hope he keeps improving.
Today if Feb 28.
My little guy was just diagnosed with allergies
i was so so sad after the appt, I cried all the way home. He was dx w/ severe nut allergy & then he was also dx w/ tomato, milk, oat allergies...
gosh, it makes me so sad...i am so paranoid of the severity of the nut allergy. how he could get anaphylaxsis & nuts are hidden in so many foods...
well, DS just woke up, I gotta go
Today sammy is approaching 6.5 months. Oh my, I just don't know where the time goes!
Although I love him more than life itself, things have been really hard. I stress so much over him after learning about his food allergies & his eczema is really bad. His skin feels super soft, I bathe him in special baths nightly & he still itches. I really didn't want to use RX steroid, but I think I may go ahead & get it filled.
He hasn't STTN, YET! It worries me about his health, not getting consistent sleep, but I honestly am now starting to enjoy my little snuggle muffin right next to me in bed. He is so cuddly when we sleep, that as long as he just wakes to eat I hope it is ok for him.
He is actually taking a nap in his crib, thank goodness! he hasn't been doing that lately either, but he is now & I am soo happy! I always make sure to put him to bed in his crib, the first waking session, i bring him back to our room b/c that is when he starts crying & scratching. He doesn't cry though if he is in bed w/ me nursing...
oh well, it is working for now.
He is soo happy during the day though, so usually in the day I am worry free. it's just the nights w/ the itchies. It also worries me his head is small 25-30%. The drs say not to worry b/c all nurses measure differently & as long as it is consistent it doesn't matter, but I guess being a mom is full of worries.
my little snuggle muffin is slumbering nicely right now in his crib. I need to go get ready for my annual OB appt.
Sammy is now 7 months old. MARCH 24.08.
We went to ILs for Easter on Sunday. It was a lot of fun. he played w/ his cousin who is 5 wks older & they weren't too interested in each other, but Sammy did try to eat his hands & arms, LOL, he wants to eat everything!! well, put everything in his mouth.
His skin has been doing really well. He seems to be much happier & it's interesting b/c he is "talking" & giggling a lot more now too. Poor little guy, w/ teething & itchies, he probably was too occupied to just enjoy himself. He seems a lot happier.
He is asleep right now & I just want to eat him to pieces!!
its been so long since i have updated! DS can now stand by himself holding on to things & he is v. happy! his skin is looking good, as long as the weather is nice.
he has been doing well on solids.
i did pears for him this week & next week, we will do parsnips.
in the evenings, i rock him 2 sleep i n the living room, then i email/type or watch tv til close to midnight, whenever he wakes up.
then i bring him up to bed.
his grandma V. came to visit today, & he really liked seeing her, i think he likes her glasses the best! it honestly is the first person he has really seen who has glasses besides his grandpa L.
anyways--DS is getting so big!!
he is making the sound Tee Tee Tee all the time now!
Sammy is now 9.5 months oh how the time flies.
we just got moved into our new house, after moving cross country.
He is crawling all over the place, standing on his own unassisted (only short period of times! He first did this that I noticed on June 1). with my sis Jackie.
He loves standing up and exploring anything & everything! Grandpa R set up his swing in our backyard last night. We had such a wonderful evening, they are leaving today which is sad, since they will now live so far from us, but we had a wonderful BBQ on our backyard picnic tables, while Sammy sat in his swing, very relaxed & content, he eventually fell asleep in the swing. I hope DH & I can have a lot of nice nights out there, with DS on the swing, fall asleep so we can sit out and listen to the crickets & unwind! I am very excited to have a nice backyard.
DS top two teeth are getting much bigger, it is so darn cute to see him smile and see teeth on the top and bottom. He is so cute, I just love him to pieces!
He should be walking any day now! At least I think, since he loves to stand unassisted...we'll see! Tomorrow is Father's day!
So my little Sambo turned 10 months on Friday. He is getting to be such a big boy. He can stand unassisted and he is so proud of himself. He gets so giggly and squealy when he plays with balls or anything new! He is so curious right now and is on the go! he does not sit still for a moment's rest, he has too much to see and do!
we had a playdate with Kat, she brought over her 2 LOs and we went in our pool. Sammy was a little curious and seemed to like the big kids
I noticed tonight he got a 5th tooth! I think 2-3 more are popping through right now too!
He broke out terribly today but tonight his skin feels so soft? I have been taking him on 1 hr walks from 730 to about 830 every weekday morning and he seems to like them, well I do at least and he seems peaceful in his stroller either chewing on a box of raisins or babbling away..................
He has some cute surfer style board shorts which are almost like pants on him. I let him wear size 2T b/c he is crawling and I hate to see his knees bareskinned on the ground and the look so dang cute on him b/c they almost go to his ankles LOL!
sammy finally clapped today! he loves to do it now and looks so utterly proud of himself!
he loves to eat blueberries right now. i took a bath w. him this a.m. and let him eat the blueberries in the tub since they are so messy & he pooped on me! he hasn't done that for months! i dont think i will give him food in tub again, probably gets his GI tract moving...
we have a jacuzzi bath and I take a bath w. him daily. so we can put the water really high, basically to right under his chin and he loves it! i love turning the jets on and massaging my feet while holding him while he plays w/ his duckies and blocks.
