Happiness Photo for Paper Mama

April 28th, 2012

Hi y’all. I’m not really back but I wanted to take a second to enter this photo into Paper Mama’s contest for a photo the exudes Happiness. It’s perfect: Sam’s happy and so is his daddy!


The Paper Mama Photo Challenge

Missing in Action

February 20th, 2012

Hey y’all. I know it’s been ages since I’ve posted anything. I just want y’all to know that everything is fine….great actually. Basically in the the last weeks Sam has become extra active and interactive meaning he needs more entertainment and he’s even more fun to play with now!

Basically I decided that I’d rather spend all my time playing with him and enjoying his smiles and taking pictures than staring at a computer writing words that were starting to seem forced to me. I really do appreciate y’all following my little blog, but for now I’m going on hiatus.

I know I’ve got some avid readers (i.e. family members) who are probably pouting at their computer screens right now thinking they’ll never see another picture of Sam. Well think again. I’ve created a Picasa site for y’all to follow along with (family and friends)! You can also click on the purple Picasa button on the right side of my blog.


I’ll still be taking Sam’s weekly and monthly photos and posting them there. I’m also going to continue to post my 365 photo project photos there and any other pictures I deem share-able. I know some of you might miss my writing, but I just don’t want to miss a second of time with my rapidly growing baby boy.

I’ll miss all you wonderful readers! For now….

365: Our Top Pics for December!

January 24th, 2012

I know I’m a bit late with this seeing as how we’re already more then half way through January, but better late then never, right? :)



If you’re interested in the rest of our photos from December, go here.

And yes, we have been taking photos still for January. I just haven’t had a chance to post them yet.

Friday Font Fanatic, Vol. 29

I figured I’d pick a font to honor our trip to Idaho this week. Here’s a snippet of the Idaho State Song in CK Woodsy.

You can download the font for free here!

Have a great weekend!

23 Weeks Old!

January 18th, 2012

Hey y’all! Another week flew by! I swear he’s gonna be one before we know it.

Sam really is doing great. He’s such a happy baby. I love making him laugh. And all the cute little noises he makes. Even when he farts. Who woulda thought all that would be so dang cute?!

He’s officially transitioned out of his swaddle! I know I kept asking, how is the transition made? Well his swaddle was in the laundry so I put him in a sleep sack and haven’t looked back. I do have to make sure his nails are super short at all times or he’ll claw the crap out of his face though.

He’s started sleeping longer stretches at night too! He’ll wake for the last time around 10pm (sometimes it’s 8pm) and then not wake up until sometime between 6am and 9am. It’s awesome! Although now that I’m writing this I’ve probably jinxed it but that’s okay. We’re gonna mess up his sleep schedule tomorrow anyways when we leave for Idaho.

Sam’s also starting to roll over more and more. I’ve even seen him roll from front to back a few times. And he seems to be trying to crawl but can’t quite coordinate it all. He’s got his legs going but doesn’t get that he needs to push up with his arms at the same time. I give him a month and he’ll probably be crawling all over the place. I guess it’s time to childproof the house!

My aunt requested a picture of Sam with his giant teddy bear since the weekly photos on here make it hard to see how much he’s grown. I thought it’d be fun to share with y’all as well.

Look how tiny he was at a month old! He’s so big now!
