It's the Great Pumpkin!

Here are a few quick snaps of Sam in his 1st Halloween costume.

and here's some video of the big day!




Despite a serious case of jet lag, he was a total trooper and came happily along with Alissa yesterday to do some Trick or Treating at my office. He couldn't eat any of the candy that people were handing out, but he definitely charmed the pants of everyone.

In other news, Sam had his 4 month doctor's appointment today and passed with flying colors. He's in the 90th percentile for weight and head size (no kidding!) and is in the 70th percentile for height. So it looks like he's still on track to start for OU as a Tight End in 2025. Whew!

The doctor also told us that he's not teething yet, despite his near constant drooling and his need to put anything within reach directly into his mouth. We should see some teeth poking their way through within a month or two, but for now Sam's still all gums. Also in the next two months Sam should start eating some solid foods, beginning with rice cereal mixed with formula (Yummy!) and moving on to fruits and vegetables. I really can't wait to start feeding him, though I'm sure the walls and floor of our dining room will never be the same.

When he's not discovering the incredible new world of food, Sam should continue to develop his motor skills, building up to crawling and (God help us) eventually walking. He really impressed the doctor with his ability to pull himself up into a sitting position and the way he likes to "stand up" when we hold him.

And last but certainly not least, the doctor relieved our worries by telling us that the slightly flat part of Sam's head is perfectly normal and that he won't have to wear a helmet. Personally I was looking forward to painting it crimson and putting an OU on the side, but Alissa was pretty horrified by the possibility. Chances are that he'll always have a less than perfectly round noggin', but if he ever grows any hair it should hide it pretty well. And besides, when you're as big, tall and good looking as Sam is, who cares if your head's a little lumpy!
