Sam & Suzy: 18 weeks

We went to a pool party last weekend, which was so much fun! Our first kid birthday party with Sam. Sam went into the pool for the first time too. He was totally chill and enjoying himself. Sam got to play with his buddy Levi too. Seriously, life is so much more fun with a kid and we've barely even begun!

Remember a few weeks ago I said Sam was close to laughing? Yeah....still nothing!!
Ok, I will get an occasional giggle. I can tickle him and he'll squeal sometimes. He'll find things funny and get the biggest smile, but nothing comes out. Right now he thinks it's funny to put his hands in my mouth. I did get one giggle out of that.

Sam also loves looking at hands. He loves it when I sing him Itsy Bity Spider. I think I'm going to start using some sign language. I know it's still way too early, but it'll help me learn some sign language and by the time he's old enough to try using it, he'll already be familiar with some of the signs. I'm actually quite excited to teach Sam some sign language and help him be able to communicate with us when he can't quite say the words.

This week has been rockin'! I started going to the gym/aquatic center. I took a water class, which was great, but a bit too easy for me. But I my body felt so much more limber (limber up!). I'm going to try the deep water one next. I did Zumba too, which was totally fun and a great workout. Also, I've been making smoothies for breakfast (kale, almond milk, banana, frozen blueberries and pineapple). It saves me time, fills me up and is so healthy! Rob's parents are here again for a week. So let's see if I can be good and not gain weight. *fingers crossed*

I will admit, it's hard for me to leave to go to the gym. I feel guilty being away from Sam during weekday evenings. Will he have fun with just Rob, will he be awake when I get home? I think most of this is hormone related (isn't everything?) I just need to remind myself that it's ok. It's actually good for me. I will not give in to mom guilt!

I love those spring floats! Maddie used hers last month when we went to California and she loved it! Sam is so adorable! He is getting so big :)
