The First Post for 2009

I know, I know... and it better be a good one.

So what's new... Well a lot actually. Scott and I are expecting another bambino. We are very excited. I was extremely ill for the past 17 weeks so that is one reason I have not been able to write. Its hard to think and write when your head is permanently attached to the toilet bowl. My poor husband has been such a champ in trying to take care of both me and Sam. Did I mention that when I use to get up for my 1am vomit attack my darling ever so caring husband put ear plugs in his ears and went back to sleep. G-d I love him...

I have also been working. I started teaching again this past Oct. and decided to do 2semesters in a row which has been very time consuming, but fun so I'm not complaining.

Sam has been great! He has had two small colds which he has been handling like a champ. He is continuing to develop and surprise us each and every day! He has a new thing he does where he pounces on us like Tiger. Its very cute, but not very safe for me as he is always aiming at my belly. Sam is already starting to beat up his little brother and he is not even born yet. And if Sam takes after me in that regard we are in BIG trouble... I tried to kill my little brother on several occasions when I was a little and a few times in recent years...

New Year's Pictures... Then and Now...


Sam is the youngest member of the Friar's Club.

Hanukkah... Sam made out like a bandit this year. All of his grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins, spoiled him as usual.

Sam's Mimi and I cooked. She makes the best brisket and I make the best potato pancakes which make for the perfect Hanukkah meal. And we know where Popi's priorities lie (doesn't even look up to say cheese). I have no pictures of Sam lighting Hanukkah candles because our menorah broke. I really am so bad at being Jewish, but I am trying... My potato pancakes were made from scratch and remember I have been vomiting uncontrollably for the past 4 months so that has to count for something right???

Sam is standing at the couch all by himself... He really is doing so well. Better than I ever expected!

Sam is trying to comfort his mommy during her time of nausea...

Sam loves his bath. And he really does have the cutest tushy in the whole world!!!
