When Sam decides he is ready to do something he gives it all he's got. Saturday Sam and I had lunch with my friend Lauren and when Lauren was talking to him he started to shake his head no - well of course we laughed ourselves silly so he kept doing it - needless to say Sam is still doing it to get a good laugh. Later that day when we got home he started to baby talk and low and behold the words dadda dadda dadda came out of his precious little mouth - I immediately screamed for Dan to come into the room and Sam continued to chant dadda dadda dadda with drool coming out of his mouth of course. We can't keep him quiet, all he wants to do is talk. (see video below)

Sam still has a cough from the cold he had a month ago, he has been waking up early in the morning having a coughing fit and it usually wakes him up. So he is sleeping through the night until anywhere between 4am and 6am depending on when the coughing fit hits him. Dan and I are getting at least 6-8 hours of uninterupted sleep now (again) YAH! Since Sam goes to Daycare 4 days a week he will probaly have a cold all winter, which means Dan and I will probaly get in on a round of the cold a time or two - Fun Times with boogery noses this winter. I will be stocking up on tissue (the soft kind).
Sam is starting to mimic things. Dan blows raspberries and Sam joins in with belly laughs to follow. I smooch (kiss) on Sam every chance I get and now he is learning how to give smoochies back to mommy ... Dan took some video, it is the cutest thing in the world.
I think our little man is ready to start eating solid foods ... I am trying to wait until he is closer to 6months old, but we are ready and waiting. Sam and I picked up his highchair, splat mat, baby spoons (turn color if food is to hot - totally cool!), bowls, and of course Rice Cereal at Babies R Us on Wednesday (my day off). He is starting to show the signs - he is constantly grabbing for our food if is sitting on our laps and he is interested in drinks - he can be playing on the floor and if I take a drink he stops everything to watch. So keep your eyes peeled for video when that starts. I am reading Super Baby Foods and I am convinced that I can make Sam's baby food for a while - just call me Martha Stewart ... I will give it a try and see how it goes.
A couple of weeks ago Sam and I went apple picking (first time for Sam and I) with our friends Amy, Ciara and Sean. We had fun. Below are some pictures from the trip.
