it's official! as of july 1st, i will only be working two days a week at the office, which means many more hours with this little angel. hoo-rah!
this is basically a cost cutting measure for the company. we were all facing cut-backs, but in my situation, it's not such a bad thing. my income will be cut in half, and i'll still have to do some daycare time (two longer days), but i'll also get a bunch more time home with sam. so come july, you will probably get much more information than you ever wanted about his daytime antics. beware!

a few highlights: here's a photo of two birthday girls and their cake (with sammy overseeing the activities)...

today was lots of fun. mom got to work from home, so my job was to entertain her. while she sat at the computer, i read... and hung out on the couch and napped (you can see my hair in this photo!)...
i'm not sure she understood all my stories, but she took breaks so we could eat and play silly games. there was a lot of laughing today. and i managed to have both the bouncy-chair covers go into the laundry. luckily, we were able to have lots of fun and find places to play without them.
i'm feeling pretty tired. mom says it's almost bedtime anyway. we're nearly finished with the first story in the big book, but maybe tomorrow you can start reading me a new one.
i'm glad you'll be home tomorrow. i miss you lots.
love -- sammy

was super good today. ate breakfast like a champ. waited patiently while mom packed the car and didn't whine when i was strapped into my carseat. came home wearing the same outfit i wore this morning. teased mom by not practicing rolling over. laughed at her silly faces. waited patiently while she had dinner and talked on the phone. went to bed like a little angel-baby. haven't pooped yet. am saving BIG mess for mommy later. don't tell. it's going to be a surprise.

had a good day today. came home with one wet outfit and one poopy outfit and someone else's pants on. laughed at mom when she tried to tickle me, when she put bottles in the fridge, and when she tried to feed me. wet another outfit. wet mom's outfit. got a new outfit. decided to test my lung capacity by yelling when i was happy. thought that went well so decided to yell when i needed to burp. it didn't help, so decided to try the combo of squirming and yelling. ate until i fell asleep. decided to give mom a break and stay asleep for my diaper change and being put to bed.
i might try that yelling thing again later when i've rested up. mom seemed to think it was exciting.
i miss you.

about a month ago i was really hungry for sourdough bread, so i pulled out my recipe and made some starter. every week since then we've been having sourdough pizza crust or a nice loaf of homemade sourdough bread. i meant to take a photo of the baked loaf, but it pretty much disappeared before i got the chance. it was yum yum yummy.

sammy had a rough night thursday night. lots of tossing and turning and wiggling and not wanting to be put down, which resulted in two very tired parents and one cutie of a boy who woke up just as happy and smiley and giggly as ever. his parents...not so much. we were terribly glad that it was friday and that we could sleep in this morning. we almost made it until 7. mike is still in bed now (lucky duck), but sam is wide awake and telling me that he'd like a little breakfast. it's a good thing he's so cute.

with any luck, i'll find out soon about my new schedule and it will include more time at home with my blue-eyed boy.
