S-L-A-C-K-E-R it's been a while.  I am such a slacker - over a month since my last blog post.  The truth is, I RARELY get on my computer anymore.  What little free time I have is usually spent doing other luxurious showering, vacuuming, washing dishes, etc.  You'd think being home all day would mean lots of free time, but 8-month-olds are demanding little creatures. 

What's new with us?  Sam has two teeth!  He also babbles Da-Da and Ma-Ma, but still doesn't have a clue that those words mean dad and mom.  His obliviousness doesn't stop me and John from getting extremely excited every time he babbles them, though.  He also learned how to clap his hands a couple weeks ago.  Our latest challenge with him:  the dreaded diaper change...not for stinky reasons, but for the unbelievable physical workout (not to mention patience) it entails.  About a week ago, changing Sam's diaper started to feel more like wrestling an alligator.  You'd think a grown adult would be able to outsmart and display more physical strength than an infant, but you're wrong.  No matter how hard you try to keep him lying on his back, he manages to roll onto his tummy and then, just to rub it in, he laughs at you.  Such a stinker.

Hey!  Look at my new teeth!

Mr. Serious

There's my happy Sam


Sam and Ted - See below for flashback photos of Sam and Ted from when Sam was 3 weeks old.


Excuse me...I'm trying to change your diaper, Mister! think you're so funny, don't you?  ;)

My boy

Whatchya thinkin' about, Sammy?

My handsome guy
These videos are a little long and somewhat boring, not to mention were from a few weeks ago (yeah...I bet you really want to watch them now... *sarcasm) - Sam's a lot more coordinated these days and picks up puffs like a champ.  Hopefully I will post some more recent videos very soon!  :)
