Going from one child to two is quite an adjustment. Thus a lack of picture taking. Thus a lack of blogging. Thus lots of complaining from family about lack of pictures. Please accept Sammy's apologies as it is really all his fault.
Sammy is nursing pretty well. We had a few days of stress but my friend in Praque saved the day as we figured out the nursing problems came from the pacifier we were using.
Sammy sleeps pretty well too. He'll sleep about 4-5 hour chunks at night. Once we moved him out of our room we all started sleeping better.
I can't say Renae is the biggest fan of Sammy. Sometimes she'll come give him hugs, but in general, she doesn't interact much with him and does not like it when he cries. Her catch phrase "Too loud!" everytime he cries is getting old . . .
I'm feeling much much better than I did after Renae's birth. And I highly recomend having a second child as the transition isn't nearly as shocking as having a new baby. I've loved having Jesse around more too since he doesn't exactly have a typical 9-5 job.
People here are saying Sammy looks like Jesse. But we still really can't tell. His eyes are small like mine, as the pediatrician so kindly pointed out. To me, he still reminds me a lot of Renae when she was a newborn so who knows who he will look like.
Speaking of the milk man . . . you know that joke in English about a child looking like the milk man, as opposed to the father? Well here they say the child looks like the plumber. Interesting.
I think we're safe with either culture's jokes.
We had a visit from Tep who gave Sammy a Nacho Libre outfit. So cool.

And I stole the picture below from my future new sister-in-law, Tarica. Love it!! I think Sammy looks just a wee bit like Tim, don't you?
