My good pal LDB has been visiting for the past few days, getting a glimpse of what life will be like for her come late April. Here's to Samson's little future playmate in Portland, Oregon! May you take it easy on your mommy and daddy; they're nice people.
Samson certainly had his best face forward for our first overnight house guest since his arrival. And by "best," of course I mean "crybabyiest." I won't lie to you. Something happened on January 1st, and apparently Samson hates 2008. I may be exaggerating slightly, but the boy has spent a considerable amount of time in the last week crying, spitting up, and getting ready to cry. To be fair, I'm comparing this new Angry Baby Syndrome to weeks of a quiet, watchful, sleepy baby, so any amount of crying or unsettledness will translate from my perspective as wrathful baby vengeance for something I must have done to displease him. But, thankfully, he's still sleeping all night, saving his energy so he can cry and spit up on me.
