so, being a mom of 2 boys is SO amazing! i love my little guys so much! sam has really warmed up to judah more and more. he loves to take his paci to him if he's fussing and his face lights up when we put judah in his lap. he also loves to rub judah's head and belly....something he has seen us do from time to time. it's the sweetest thing and absolutely melts my heart!
sam is now 16 months old and judah is 1 month old. time is flying already! they are both growing like little weeds. sam had a well baby check this past week and is holding steady at 27lbs. he's also taking a half flinstone gummy vitamin everyday because that child is the pickest eater ever! i don't know where he gets that from either. matt and i will eat pretty much anything. not sam though. his staples are oatmeal, grits, raisins, yogurt, gerber meals pudding, applesauce and mac and cheese. oh, and he likes sandwich meat and cheese. he also likes anything that is considered to be junk food. how do kids know what is junk food and what is healthy?? he won't even *try* most healthy foods. i gave him a banana the other day only to have him hold it in his hand and squish it like he was the incredible hulk. he then proceeded to pound it into the tray of his highchair. ugh. other than that though, he is doing fantastic!
he still sleeps like a teenager. it's unreal how long that child can sleep. i'm not complaining by any means but it really blows my mind! he is now going to bed about 7:30pm. he wakes about 6 or 7 am and talks to himself for about 10-15 minutes then crashes again until 9:30 or 10ish. we are so lucky! haha! we did try to get him to sleep in our bed the other day mostly just because we were feeling very sentimental and judah was in our room (in his bassinet), so we thought it would be fun to bring sam in. um, big mistake. he sleeps like a wild child! i mean, he throws himself all over the place. after thoroughly beating us to death he woke up (due to our laughing) then decided that it was really time to play! needless to say after 5 mintues of playing he wound up back in his room. in his crib. i'm not sure when (if) we'll try that one again!
judah is doing great and growing like a big boy! he weighs 11.5lbs now which is just crazy! sam didn't weigh that until he was like 2 months old! maybe even a little older! he really is a good baby although he does fuss some. i'm not going to act like he's perfect because then you all might get jealous. i mean, we do have beautiful kids so we don't want anyone feeling worse about theirs than they already do! hey, what can i say? i'm a proud momma!!!! and have you seen my kids lately?? anyway, back to judah. now that we are learning more of his likes, dislikes, and little quirks we are getting much better at offsetting any potential dramatic moments! woo hoo!
i'm posting some pics of the boys. the kicking pic is NOT actual kicking. we were all playing together on the bed and sam realized he could touch his foot to judah's head....which he did. literally. what can i say? he's a boy.
