A Very Late Halloween Post

That will be mostly adorable pictures, I promise. That way, you will have to forgive its tardiness. Lest you think I’ve forgotten big brothers…(and, for the record, they are now of an age where it’s MUCH more fun – and way less lame, I’m sure – to go trick-or-treating with friends than with Dad and […]

Yellow Bike!

It’s finally here! We’ve had the bike for not quite 24 hours, and I think he’s only been off it long enough to sleep. First, the stills: Favorite quotes: “I park my bike in the office.” “We don’t eat bikes. We ride bikes.” (this morning) “We go to Grandma and Grandpa’s house.” “The big truck […]

Singalong Sam

Published by under Baby D 2010,Samuel Lewis

He sings songs from school, songs he’s heard at home, and sometimes just songs he makes up. He even sings a couple of prayers (the one they say before lunch at school and the Shema at night before bed). Here are two of my latest favorites.

Making a Baseball and Basketball

Cake, that is. With Sam’s second birthday just around the corner (AAAAAAACK!), I’ve started thinking about what to do for his birthday cake. I had about decided I’d do the busy-working-mom thing and order a cake from Kroger. But when I stopped by Sara’s house to drop off a Blues Clues cake pan (because she’s […]

Where Does 18 Months Put Us?

Published by under Baby D 2010,Samuel Lewis

Well, now that he’s almost 19 months old (on Sunday, aaaaaaaack!), I thought I’d do an 18-month stats update for Samm-0. At his checkup, he was 26 pounds, 11 ounces (60th percentile) and 32 inches tall (38%…so a little on the short side). He still had some fluid on his ears from an ear infection […]

Big Boy

Every day it seems that Sam shows us something new that he’s learned. He’s getting to be a Big Boy so fast–faster than I am ready for. Examples of Sam’s Big Boy status– He willingly gives up the paci when it’s not naptime, bedtime, or other cranky times. He even uses Paci as a bargaining […]

15 Month Update

Well, as you can tell from my last post, Sam has hit 15 months and had his necessary checkup. He was not the happiest of campers at the doctor. Normally he’s happy and charming until it’s time for shots. But at this appointment, he screamed at the stethoscope touching his skin and being laid down […]

Babies Don’t Keep

Have you ever heard the poem “Babies Don’t Keep?” Most people probably at least know the last two lines of “So quiet down cobwebs, Dust go to sleep. I’m rocking my baby, and babies don’t keep.” I’ve always loved those lines, and the whole poem (which I’ll put below) chokes me up every. single. time. […]

Party Time!

Well, it’s been nearly a week since Sam’s first birthday party, and I truly think the only reason I haven’t been flogged for not having a post up about the party is that I have at least posted some pictures on Facebook, and I’ve shared some more through Picasaweb. In short, Sam had a FABULOUS […]

One Year Ago Today

Published by under Baby D 2010,Samuel Lewis

One year ago today, I was filled with anticipation, nerves, and excitement (and epidural drugs), ready to meet the baby boy I loved so much, even before I met him. I can’t believe it’s already been a year. Sam, you have changed, and changed my life, so much. I love you more and more each […]
