So I've decided since I forget to blog and then when I do I have SO much to catch up on that I need to try to blog once a week and I'm going to try to do that on Fridays or at least before the weekend is over!!

We've had a good week! Tuesday night was my first night alone with Sam and we had fun. He crashed about 730pm and slept until 445am. Wednesday night we spent the night with Grammie and it was fun. She let us sleep with her in her king size bed! Sam liked that since he loves to stretch out!

We went up to size 2 diapers this week! My little man is growing so fast and we increased his formula! We have been putting cereal in his bedtime bottle for the last few weeks but I think this weekend we are going to give it to him by itself in his high chair! I am excited about that. Sam has become a bottomless pit! He turned 4 months old yesterday and we go Monday for his check up. I always love to hear that he is doing great but not looking forward to the shots.

When I came home last week Frazier told me to come in the back door b/c something was wrong with the front door. I walk in and Sam is asleep and I think he is walking me down the hall to see Sam but he walks me into the living room and on the mantle is a 16x20 picture of my sweet dumpling. It is my mom's day gift but he couldn't wait and I couldn't either! It was so overwhelming for me. For those of you who know me well I never knew I'd be able to have a baby and I'd walk into friends homes that have pictures all over their walls of their child and then last night as I ate my dinner and watched TV I was in my living room looking at a picture of our son and it just took my breath away. Often in life people question God why this or why that when something bad happens but I find myself saying what did I ever do to deserve this precious life. Not a day goes by that I don't thank God for my beautiful baby!

Please keep our sweet friends Margaret, Darren & Annsley in your prayers. Annsley has RSV. We hope she feels better soon!

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Sam is napping beside me on his pallet. We've been watching Brother Bear today and playing. He has changed so much in such a short period of time!! We had his 3 month pictures made a couple of weeks ago and he did so good. I was a little worried b/c he had fallen asleep on the ride over and sometimes he's ill when you wake him up but he did so good and smiled. I have attached a few of those pictures. He had his first trip to home depot and I don't know who was more excited Sam or Frazier. Sam and I played in the buggy and he laughed and smiled. I think he was laughing at my singing but either way we had a good time.
When Sam was born he didn't sleep in his bed much and he became a HUGE fan of his bouncy. Well since then he's always slept in his bouncy (the best gift ever, thanks Margaret!) and recently I've been concerned with what we are going to do when he grows out of that but thankfully he is starting to nap on his back more and roll to his side. Yesterday he was napping and rolled onto his tummy and napped for 3 hours. As precious as it was I don't think we'll be encouraging 3 hour afternoon naps because it was 1230 am before he went back to sleep. We tried to let him sleep in his bed last night and he laid there in the crib for about an hour and just played then he was wide awake....he ended up sleeping in his bouncy but while he was in there he didn't cry so I take that as step one...stay tuned for updates on that one!!
We had to take him to the Dr. this past Tuesday. He had a diaper rash that was causing his skin to crack and bleed. Dr. Bob said this is not uncommon and that the rash had yeast in it. He gave us some antibotic ointment and Sam is doing much better. He also was horse when he cried and sounded like he had baby larengitis and was stuffy and had a low fever. Bless his heart Tuesday was a rough day for him. It took him a few days to get back to normal but now he's doing much better!! Internet isn't cooperating so video for later..hopefully!
