This post is really just an excuse to show off Sam in his cute little hooded sweater!!
Not much news. Sam has been a little constipated and fussy today, but really he's fine. His sleeping has resumed to normal night time sleeping, and I guess he's over his growth spurt, because he's not eating nearly so frequently, nor spitting up so much. In fact, yesterday he went 7 hours between feedings! He ate at 7 pm, and not again until 2:30 am. Sam is learning to tell us when he's ready for bed, but Mom & Dad are sometimes slow on the uptake. Around 10:00 I expected Sam to have his before bed feeding but he wouldn't eat. He was screaming and screaming. Aaron came in and said, maybe he wants to go to bed?? So I changed him into some pajamas, gave him his vitamin, put him in his crib with his pacifier and he calmed right down. I think Sam is the one teaching us, not the other way around.
I am a little paranoid. A week or so ago when cleaning Sam's little butt after a big poo, I felt a lump under the skin near his anus. I have been keeping an eye out and it seems like maybe it's bigger? The skin there now is a little red so it's visible to the eye now. Should I take him to the doc? I think it's nothing. I think it is normal rectal muscle and I have now irritated the skin by poking at it. But I think I might take him in anyway. Lumps are scary.
