the tooth!

i was finally able to get some pics of the tooth! yay! sam wasn't the biggest fan of this process though....can't say that i really blame him! it's still kinda hard to see but this was the best we could do! enjoy!

isn't he a doll!!!!!

sam loves to take his bath. i think it's his favorite part of the day. when we are finished with bath time everything in a 3 foot radius of him is soaked! the funny thing is that today we tried putting him in a kiddy pool with my brother (jeffrey, my 22 year old brother, got bored and filled up the little pool my sister uses to lay out in so that he could 'play' for awhile) and the child screamed bloody murder! he then proceeded to get so worked up that he threw up....all over my head (don't ask how he got above my head) and all over my scrubs. it was so nasty and it smelled horrible! amazingly enough though, it didn't bother me all that much. i always wondered how i would handle spit up and poop and other wondrous glories of motherhood and to be quite was rather easy.

i also threw in a pic of sam trying his best to get to mia. she would lay just out of his reach and when he got close she would scoot back. poor baby just wanted to play with the puppy. she is really good with him and he is 100% fascinated with her. i love watching his face light up when she comes around. too cute!

a dentist dream....

ummm, not so much actually. after feeling around those little gums and watching the drool and the runny nose i finally stuck my finger in sam's mouth (we all do it) to find a most delightful present....a teeny tip of a tooth! of course i was elated! i called everyone i could think of to tell them that my baby had a tooth! what a huge moment! sam and i did a little dance, hugged and sang. i don't think he really understood the magnitude of this slot in time. well, little did i know the terror that would evolve over the next few days.

the night of my little discovery was wonderful. he went to bed at 8pm and woke up at 9am....just like he used to. the following day though was horrific! see, this whole first time parent thing is one ginormous learning experience. simple little dental me very innocently thought that because a portion of the tooth was out (and sam had done really well up until this point) that the worst was behind us. boy was i wrong! that whole next day i could not wait until matt got home just to obtain some relief! and then that night......ugh.

and to think.....only 19 more baby teeth to go! yippee..........

i caved.....

okay, so i finally decided to jump on the blog train and can i say that i'm a little overwhelmed?? facebook is so much easier people. you just jump on your profile, check out the pics, see what everyone has planned and how they are feeling, posts some nice comments on other's walls or photos and then boop, you're done! so easy.

any advice from you avid bloggers out there is more than welcome. poor me, i'm gonna have to spend tomorrow trying to figure all this stuff out.

this whole blogging thing could have a little something to do with that cup of coffee that i drank...which has kept me up until now....3am! i remember when i could drink coffee then head straight to bed. obviously that isn't so any longer. no wonder adults drink this stuff in the morning! i guess this is what happens when you become a big girl! caffeine acts like it's supposed to!
