Who the hell's this kid and what 'cha do with my Sammy?

Things have been tough in this household the last week or so; we've been trying to wean Sam off the dreaded night feeds which hadn't been going well AT ALL! And, along with the perpetual snotty nose, Sam had decided he wasn't 'into' foods, thank you very much - and certainly wasn't going to drink any of that foul formula crap. He'd wait for the booby, even if he had to wait hours for it, in turn possibly dehydrating himself. Man, this kid is STUBBORN!

But the last 2 days, it's as if we traded Sam in for a newer, improved, somewhat 'better' Sam - he's been eating like a maniac; veggie burgers (what an invention! Fried in oil nonetheless but whatever works, right?), broccoli, cheese, and all sorts of goodies including the latest favorites - grapes (which interestingly enought come out the other end looking, well... pretty much how they went in!)! Then, the kid decides to sleep through the night, waking ONCE at 5:30am for a feed, then let mommy sleep til 8:15!

It's amazing how much more I love this kid after a good night's sleep. I mean I'll always LOVE him but, you know... I actually LIKE him a hell of a lot more after some solid zzz's.

Here's a somewhat entertaining video of Sam stuffing his face with his new favorite food.

Wish me luck that he'll be this easy til he moves out at 18? One can dream, no?

    Thats SOOOOOO cute! But seriously, did you starve him for day before sitting him down with his grapes??

    And ahhh, I can only dream about a full night of sleep - well, dream in the 1-2hours of sleep I get in a row... This too shall pass I guess which is the only reason I don't 'hates' you at the moment!

    The grapes actually came at the end of a very big supper - can you believe it?

    And don't worry, you don't have to hates me. As if out of the blue, the real Sam returned last night... sigh...

    Man, that boy can eat FAST. How does he manage to burn it all off? And I love the extra excited bouncey-bouncey action at the end. Just in case you weren't sure he was enjoying dinner.

    My Sam was up every two hours last night, too, which was a downer given how well he's been sleeping lately. We discovered the culprit in his diaper this morning: a couple of rabbity little poops we hadn't been able to smell during the night. Poor guy. My boy may love having boogers all over his face, but he hates having poopy drawers.

    Loved the video! The only thing A eats with such enthusiasm are Cheerios. She eats a lot of table food but is very inconsistent in what she likes from day to day.

    Poor other Sam! Nobody likes a stealth night poop.
