HO Ho ho

It's Christmas Eve!  Santa will be visiting Sammy for the first time tonight...we are totally excited!  :)  Sam visited Santa at the mall last week and also got his first Christmas stocking.  We're all set!

In other news...Sammy has officially started laughing when you tickle him.  He's also started "complaining" in the evenings when it gets close to bedtime (see videos below).

Here are a bunch of pictures and videos from the past couple weeks since my last blog post...enjoy!

Waking up is hard to do

...aaannndd  he's back to sleep.

I love this munckin!

Hey Sam!

Good Morning, Burrito!

I love snuggling with him.

A day in the life

For all you baby gawkers out there...enjoy some more of Sam! 

Earlier this week Sam reached out and grabbed on to one of his dangling toys for the first time all by himself!  :D might not seem like much to most of you, but it's a huge baby-step for Sam and his development (and the fact that it was the highlight of my week just goes to show all you people out there with real lives just how fascinating staying at home everyday is LOL...thrilling.)   ...I think I need to get out more.  ;)

Holding On Strong!  :)

Worn out after play time


Another exciting part of our routine is bath's Sam's FAVORITE thing to do!  I love watching him splash and have fun.  :D  


Here are some photos for Aunt Nina of the onesie she got Sam.  I love it!  :D

And in other news...guess who doesn't like hats anymore:

Two Months Old!

Today Sam turned two months old!  He's full of smiles these days and is learning how to talk (...well babble)...and I'm LOVING every second of watching him grow!  Here are some photos from his big milestone today.  I'm also including some photos at the bottom from the past week (Thanksgiving week).  Sam was lucky enough to see almost ALL of his grandparents this holiday...which is pretty cool considering they live 500-1000 miles away!!!  :D

Hungry boy

Check out that Sam the Samurai hairline...he's all peach fuzz except for the ponytail he's growing in the back.  LOL

I love these chunky toes!

Uh oh...we found our thumb!

He turns me to MUSH!

Ugh!  I want to eat him!

My chunk-a-lunk

Sweet cheeks

Hi Sam!

Love that face!

He's looking out the window.  haha!

My pretty baby

Showing off those killer eye lashes!

Smiles Aren't Free

Here's another somewhat random post full of cell phone pictures and videos.  :)  Sam is seven weeks old today!  Over the past week he has learned how to smile in response to us making fools of ourselves.  He makes us work for smiles...they aren't free or easy to come by. ;)  The last video in this post shows a little smile I got out of him this morning.  :D

I'm starting to realize all the nicknames we've given this little guy so far.  New ones come up everyday, but I thought I'd compile a little list of the main players in this name game.  I'm not sure if this kid will ever know his true name.

Sammy D Who Nugget --- Who Nuggz --- Nugget --- Pumpkin Pie --- Whoa Nells --- Munchkin Man --- Lovie --- Lovie Smith --- Sammy D-licious --- Scrumptious --- Pumpkin Head --- Sir Poops A lot --- Milk Drunk Love --- Chunk --- Chub-O-Lubz --- Stinker --- Nugg-A-Luggz  --- Nuggy Nuggies In His Huggies
