Sam is 2 months today!


There's our Sammy! Can't believe what a difference a month makes when they are so little.  If you care to compare, here is Jack at the same age.


The past month has been full of ups and downs. Around week 5 and 6, he hit some peak fussiness where he cried almost all of his awake time. That wasn't too fun. He had (has) some gas issues too so I've cut out a lot of dairy and that seems to have helped. Or maybe he's just getting older. But the past week he's been lovely and pretty darn happy during the day. As long as he's being held of course. :)


The nighttime hasn't been too terrible either (fingers crossed). I know we're due for a sleep regression but for now it's very manageable. He'll go down between 7 and 8 and then will sleep until sometime between 11:30 and 1:00am. Not too bad! After that he might go down for another 90 minutes and then after that he just wants to be held in bed with us. Like I said, it's not great but we seem to be managing.


I feel a little bad for the poor little guy because his life so far consists of getting dragged to Jack's school and activities. And he is NOT a fan of the car. Not as bad as Jack's hyperventilating and choking, but bad enough to cry and wail for 30 minutes straight. Hopefully he'll grow out of it in a few months like his big brother did. I try to remember to talk to him specifically and play with him one and one and engage him, but sometimes it's hard with Jack wanting so much attention. I'm sure it'll even out soon.


But, all in all, Sam is pretty darn adorable. It's hard as hell to go places with the two of them but I'm trying to enjoy how small Sam is because I know it'll go by super fast. Happy two month birthday Sam!

"And... I'm out."


  1. I can't get over how much he looks like Jack - it is crazy!

  2. Hooray! Sounds like he's doing great! He is also totally adorable. I love that you do these monthly posts for the boys :)
