Little Man Sam

Thanks for peeking at my baby journal.
THis is my first baby & he is now 3 months old. A buddy on my birth board rec'd this thread to help track our thoughts & so we can reflect & remember them!
I hope I am good at refreshing this!

----------
My birth story--------
Sunday night, (8-19) I went to the hospital for my planned induction. The plan was to use cervadil (since I was just 1.5cm dilated), use the cervadil (cervical softening agent) for 12 hours. I got the cervadil at 10pm at 4 am I woke up in mega-momma contractions. (rarely happens with cervadil). I sat on the birth ball & thought of a happy place during the contractions and was able to breathe through them until about 6am. When I requested the epidural. I got the epidural 4 hours LATER!! I was 9 CM & it only worked on my L side! I was still in a lot of pain. By the time he got the epidural to work on both sides, it was literally about 30 minutes before pushing! (but I would do it all over!).
Anyways, when it came time to push, DH got suited up, to catch the baby! we used the big mirror, I pushed for close for 2 hours (it was pretty long, but I really wanted to do it without pitocin, so it was worth it!).
I watched the whole thing through the mirror, watched DH be the first to put his hands on our little boy. It was so beautiful. Then they passed him up to me for about 20 minutes of skin to skin. I was so happy, it was the most amazing experience of my life. In fact, just writing about it, I want to cry! It was so amazing! I am so in love with my little Sammy Smile

today--Sammy is about 3.5 months & I had to work part-time today. So after I got home, I took him to the craft store to buy a Christmas ornament, where we could put his handprint in. I decided that a new tradition of ours, as our family grows, each yr our LOs will make an ornament for the tree.

He loves to go to the store (we don't go too often, like once a week or so) & he gets so entranced looking at the shelves if there are bright colorful things on them.
He has a lumberjack hat (baby gap winter hat) & he looks too damn cute with it on. I am just picturing his cute little cheeks, big eyes looking up at the shelves with his funny little red lumberjack winter hat on.

He is taking a nap right now still in his car seat, I dressed him up today in little overalls & plaid shirt *when he is at home w/ our nanny he just wears his little footie outfits, so of course momma has to dress him up cute when she is home iwth him. I am going to take him out of the carseat & let him sleep on my lap---probably not the best thing for him, b/c he is soo sound asleep right now, but I miss him at work & love to hold him. He is getting to the stage, where he would rather me walk around vs just letting me rock him, so I am going to take advantage of it.

maybe I will keep up w/ the blogs on the weekends. We just got back from taking a walk. Our big happy family. Me, DH, Sam & our dog. It was freaking cold out. I think it has to be in the 30s. I had him in the Bjorn, with his winter hat on & then I was wearing DHs winter coat, so I could zip us both up. He did seem snuggly warm in there, since he was against my chest. He fell asleep during the nap & now he is upstairs in his crib.

Someday I will let him sleep in that crib longer than just naptimes, but for now, I just can't do it! He isn't sleepign through the nights yet. He wakes up after 3-4 hrs of sleep, then eats, falls right back to sleep, then he is up after 2-3 hrs & from then on it's every 2 hrs & that is it. He will keep sleeping, but using those intervals. So, for that reason, I like him in our room, but in his pack n play. I do also like the safety of having him in our room too, I just feel more comfortable with it. So for now, he will stay there!
I just ordered our Christmas cards yesterday & finished our Christmas calendar for the grandparents. I can't wait to get them!

well I just put Sammy to bed, so I have a few minutes b4 I have to shower & get ready for tomorrow. But tomorrow is Tuesday, hooray, I have a full day off.
I love my full days with him. It makes me kind of regret picking up extra hours this month. Since it is Dec & holidays, I felt kind of obligated to take the hours since they were offered, but tonight, while snuggling with DS & watching his cute little face...it made me think, nothing is more important than being with him. So I think after December, I was going to start an extra full day of work, but I think I will only do one 1/2 day of work.

I am still nursing DS to sleep. I bring him on our bed & I read him a few books. he seems to like it when I read the Sandra Boynton books- Moo Baa Laa & Red Hat Green Hat, i admit that I like to read them too! I can add funny sounds to some of the words---like OOPS, in the Red Hat Green Hat & DS seems to giggle or smile whenever I say that.
It just amazes me how every day I seem to notice that he is more alert.

We bought a video monitor & I am downstairs typing & looking up at the monitor. He is wearing his "cute as a mouse" white fleece PJs & he looks so cuddly!

well that's all for tonight--time to get ready for bed myself Smile

Sam is taking a nap right now. We bought the video monitor which I really love & feel much better about him sleeping in his crib. Although, i still usually give in & have him stay in our room in the PnP. I am getting a little more comfortable with the though every day though...

he has a cold today & I can tell he just doesn't feel very good. His ezcema is flared up & I lathered him up in the hydrocortisone cream, so hopefully that will make him feel better. I hate it when I see him so itchy & there is nothing that I can do about it...sigh....

we took him to the mall to see Santa yesterday, but the line was probably 2 hrs long:eek: so we decided to wait! I will just take him by myself on Tues, i wanted DH to come, but it wasn't worth the wait & he said he is fine to just look at the pix Smile

I took Sammy Christmas shopping yesterday & wore him in the Bjorn, he did really well & loved looking at all the shelves & ppl. But I am not taking him out today since he isn't feeling well. Last night we went to his nanny's birthday party. It was pretty neat b/c all the families she has ever nannied for showed up, even from 17 yrs ago.

gotta run!

took Sammy to see Santa today. Waited only 30 minutes in this line. The santa was so adorable, with a real beard, he looked magical! Smile
DS did a half of a grin for the camera, but it was adorable, he was looking like WTH is going on? Priceless expressions!

He finally fell asleep! He has been losing hair, my poor little balding Sammy! He almost has a comb over with long hair in the back of the head & top of the head but the front of the head is what is balding! oh well, I know it's common but I didn't realize how much I liked his hair until now that it is going away!
Since he has ezcema, I had a hard time lotioning his scalp w/o it looking like he had gel/grease in his hair, so at least I can lotion up his scalp now & hopefully in a few months once the weather gets more humid, the dryness will stop.

that is my only worry with DS. So I should feel very blessed that all I have to worry about is his dry skin. I feel so lucky & blessed to have such an adorable little boy! Smile
love you Sammy boy! good night

today is Friday Dec 14.
we had a rough day yesterday Sad poor Sammy boy broke out with eczema rash head to toe, I almost took him to the hospital last night. but he seemed to do ok after I bathed him & put steroid cream all over him.
the weather here is changing quite a bit, it's getting cold & I know this weather really bothers his skin.
he has been in a good mood though, so I shouldn't be worried I guess.

He is now wearing size 9 months for all his clothes. I can't believe how fast he is growing! I need to go through his clothes again & put away all his 6 month outfits. I saw a 1 month old when I was at a restaurant for lunch & he looked soo teeny tiny, it almost makes me forget how small he was!

Sammy is taking a nap right now. He is in his crib & I have the video monitor on. He is sleeping sucking his thumb. He started sucking it about 1 week ago, it is really cute, but I just hope he breaks the habit when he is a toddler, I don't mind it now & maybe it is just a phase.
He is wearing his snowmen sleeper fleecy pjs, he is soo cute & his hair is starting to grow back. the top of his head got really thin & just the past few days it almost seems an inch long! amazing how fast it grows!
Sam has now been through 2 snow blizzards, I have yet to take him outside & take pix! He has a snowsuit size 6-9 mos & I think he will be too big for it! Can;t believe it!

Sat. continued...

I was a little nostalgic tonight, I went through the boxes of packed clothes & I found his coming home outfit & it was soo tiny! It is a little sad, that it is hard to imagine them so tiny again, but nonetheless, I love him so much & am having so much fun with him as he is getting bigger!

wow, he has already had his first Christmas. We went to ILs for 5 days it was a little tough, I think being out of his routine, teething, sleeping in new place, loud yappy dogs, so he was kinda fussy, but overall we had a great time.

so cute to have him dressed up in his Christmas outfits & red hat! I opened gifts w/ him on my lap & he would try to eat the paper, so we have some cute pix! his cousin is almost 2 & kept wanting to "kiss the baby" it was really cute & something I am sure when they are 10 & 8, we will laugh about later on!

He is snoozing on my bed right now.
I hope I am not creating a monster, he sleeps pretty good, but he falls asleep right after BF & since I have been working more lately, I miss my cuddle & holding time with him. So I will sometimes nurse him then let him sleep next to me just so I can cuddle him.
like right now.....

So, DS rang in the new year with DH & me!
It was about 11:55, DH poured up the champagne in our wedding flutes & we were all ready to have the big kisseroo then drink our champagne, DS woke up!
We let him cry (just wriggling around crying) until the ball dropped, did our kiss & drank a little. I then got him up & he was giggling so we had fun with him for about 30 minutes b4 he passed out. It was so cute to see him, it was as if he knew something exciting was going on downstairs LOL!

OMG--I just love love love it when he wakes up from naps, he just looks so refreshed & happy! His cute little smile & the CHIN! I just want to nibble it up!
I love his endentulous little grin!

It's funny b/c just lately I have noticed he makes these funny conversation sounds. He sounds like Grandpa Simpson w/ this old man type voice. It is hilarious!

DS is still asleep. Lately I have been able to put him down around 930-1000ish & he will sleep til close to midnight, then I BF him & put him in the PnP in our room. I am now willing to let him sleep in his nursery, but everytime he wakes up right as I am going to bed & it is just convenient & secure to know I can BF then put him in our room...someday soon though, IDK!

It is so wonderful to have DS back to his normal self, he had a few days where he was super fussy--maybe teething? but finally, happy baby is back!!
yay!!

today was pretty upsetting for me.
i took DS to the regular Dermatologist since there is not an appt available til end of March for Pedi-derm, so when I was there, the jacka$$, who was very impersonal said, we need to get an MRI of the brain b/c he could have a lesion on it. B/c DS has a red macule on the back of his head that his pedi didn't know what it was, but he wasn't concerned.
I was a little concerned, but kind of thought it was a birthmark or PWStain.

but anyways, needless to say, I will be sweating bullets if I have to wait til end of March to find this out...I am going to try like hell to get him in sooner.
if i truly think of my gut instinct, i am not worried, after looking up information re: capillary lesions etc...but I just truly don't know...I just want my baby to be happy & healthy & safe....

hooray! today was a great day. we went to the pedi dermatologist & she told us NO worries at all about the birthmark on the back of his head! hooray!
I am soo glad he doesn't need an MRI.

he still does have ezcema which needs to continue to be treated but I can handle that!
he is taking a nap right now & just starting to stir, so I am off!

OMG-he is too cute for words. he really has been melting my heart lately. I went to the mall w/ him today, to buy him cotton PJ sleepers to help w/ his scratchy/itchies...
anyways, when he woke up from his nap, when I was strolling him around the mall, for about 30 minutes, he just kept staring at me & everytime I made eye contact w/ him or said "BOO!" he would bust up in giggles. OMG it was so cute.
I love it when he is giggly. I can't believe how beautiful his giggles sound. It really is the most beautiful sound I have ever heard. It's amazing how a sound can make you feel so happy! Smile
I love you Sammy boy!

little Sammy is upstairs asleep right now. I am thinking of starting rice cereal this wknd. maybe on Sunday, so DH can video it. i can't believe he is 5 months 2 wks already! geesh time has flown!

he was so giggly and happy today! he took a really long nap & so did I, he didn't sleep v. well last night, not sure why? but lately nights have progressively gotten worse...he just doesn't like to sleep more than 3 hrs ever! i just hope he gets enough sleep, i will be patient and I know i will get my sleep shortly. just want whats best for him.

i switched to 100% cotton pjs (no more fleece) even though it looks comfortable, i noticed they sometimes get scratchy after a few washings. but anyway, he is in size 12 mos! I can't believe it!!! i bought a bunch at Childrens' place & they fit kind of snug, it makes him look long & skinny! which he kind of is!
his height was 27 inches (95%tile)
weight was 16.5 lbs (50%tile) that made me sad to see his weight go down to the 50%, but his height sky rocketed this month, so maybe that is why his % are off.
well it's 11:20 pm & I better get to bed, i have a long night ahead of me!
but he is worth it Wink

babble babble babble

the sweetest sound I have ever heard! today I would count it as his first "words" day. He has been babbling so much, the sound he makes is such so sweet, I just can't believe my heart melts so much just to hear his voice! oh he is so adorable!

We were able to get some on video today, I just love him to pieces Smile

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... Sad
hope he keeps improving.

Today if Feb 28.

My little guy was just diagnosed with allergies :cry:
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 Sad

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!

10 months June 23, -08

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!

Good morning! stretch! hmm, what time is it? could be 3am, 5am, 6am, 7am LOL! Do you think I am getting too big for the bassinet? Maybe the miracle blanket will help me from wriggling around.

Look how happy I am after my nap, looking up at my teddy bear mobile!


Snack time! this occurs about every 2 hours, see my boppy in the picture, that is how mommy is able to NAK on preg.org so often Smile




Now it's time for mommy to clean the kitchen, I like to chill in my swing while she does it. I look like I am ready for a nap!


My mommy loves to prop me on the recliner to pose for pictures. Getting ready for our walk.


My doggie Ginger, leading the way on our 2 mile walk. This is the same walk my parents did every night, while mommy was preggers with me.


Time for mommy-alone time, she is going running & showering while daddy does tummy time with me. Well, tummy time doesn't last too long, I am much happier playing on my back!



Bath time! hmm, I don't look to happy, I just pooped & daddy drained my warm water.


Chillin in the bouncy seat while my dad studies and mommy gets ready for bed.


well that's all folks! time to repeat it all again! Hope you enjoyed! Smile

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.

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

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!

too cute

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! Smile

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. Smile
