In the shower: "Dad, are you putting air conditioning in my hair?"

Sam to me: 
"Guess what my dinosaur name is, mom...
Crackodon...because I get up at the crack of dawn."
Daddy had a role in creating that one!!!

Relax, Baby

this morning, when I told you to relax around the baby, you said: "Mom, if you want me to relax, take me to Hawaii."
I hear you, Sam!!!!
Only later did you tell me that you pilfered that line from Garfield, the DVD.   Wow!

Nicholas - one month old

Nicholas, you are a dream baby.  You LOVE to be in the swing -- you just fall asleep right away!  If only you would sleep for more than 3 hours during the night  :)  You are a champ of a sleeper during the day, though.  You are such a content baby; you barely fuss and cry.   You have 3 cries:  I'm hungry (bird call/shreek), I'm gassy (grunty), I'm sleepy (cooing-cry).  

It's been a month since you were born and we love you as much as ever.  Your brother, Sam, adores you -- always wants to kiss you on the cheeks, says how cute and little you are, gives you your "paci" when you fuss, and is a great helper to me when I change your diapers.

I just love being your Mom.  xoxo


Today Sam said:
  • Only people with big boobies get shots at the doctor.
  • The baby looks funny... Like an old man.
  • Mimi, are you older than Dad?
Sam, you are a hilarious kid!!
