S is for…

Stubborn…or Sam…or, well, they are interchangeable right now.

He used to be so calm and laid back.  I am not sure what has happened in the last month but the little man has found a major stubborn streak. 

*When Sam wakes up in the morning he can not wait for one second to eat.  He immediately starts screaming like he is starving and has to be fed right then.  Nothing, and I mean nothing, can distract him.  Actually eating is like that for him most of the time.  When he is hungry, he is going to let me know!

*Every time I am putting the kids in to the car Sam throws his body around and fights getting buckled. He starts crying and arching his back.  I just have to let him thrash around for a minute and then sneak in and get him buckled.

*When I go to sit Sam down on the floor so that I can take care of something he straightens his legs out, arches his back, and wants nothing to do with sitting down.  If I walk out of the room, he goes crazy. I am pretty sure he can rival Reese when he cries.

*When it is time to take a nap he does not want anything to do with napping.  He thrashes around in my arms, cries, spits his pacifier out, and just makes things difficult.  Sometime I just have to lay him down in his bed, walk out, and let him cry for a little while.  Then I come back in, try again, and usually get him to sleep.

*He knows what he wants, when he wants it.  And he lets me know what that is!!!

Through out the day he goes through many emotions and behaviors.  Some other things that he is:




I wouldn’t trade him for the world.  Even when he is being a stubborn little stinker.
