The faces of Samson

So, here is what we have learned, in five and a half weeks, about our little Samson..

He does not like having his diaper changed and he does not like waiting for his food. He has a lot of gas issues and he lets out monster burps and big big toots. He loves sleeping in my magic sling and he dislikes his swing.

He loves to eat and he loves to sleep (when he is not fighting it). He has very little quiet-alert time. Most of the time when he is awake, he is fussy.

He does not like riding in the car. He usually screams his head off any time we drive anywhere, whether it is a mile away or twenty miles away.

He loves being outside. Unlike most babies, the wind and heat do not seem to bother him at all. He much prefers that over the cool inside air.

He sleeps well at night, but has a really tough time sleeping in the morning hours. Between the hours of 6:00 am to noon every day, you can find me and/or Dan soothing Sam to sleep. It is a pretty tough time, especially when Elijah is home. Samson is very high maintenance during this time and it is hard to pay attention to much more than him.

He is our wonderful second child, and despite the foggy tiredness we are experiencing, we love him very much! We are sooo excited so watch him grow into the person he is meant to become. Sammy, WE LOVE YOU!!

Sounds like he is very high maintenance. But hopefully that will all change. I know it is hard right now and I hope things start to turn around in the future. Sorry you are having such a hard time. My prayers are with you in hopes that things will get better soon. HE is such a doll..

Crying or happy, he is still a cutie pie!

And look at that grown little man! Riding a bike... they're growing too quickly! I still haven't found that way to slow them down, but when I do, I promise to share:0)

Sound like things have been going well, despite lack of sleep:0/ Sorry I've been absent... just in a slacking, non-commenting mood. I'm working on that, but know I've been checking in watching those two handsome boys of yours! Give them big hugs!!
