Phineas Samson – 10 months

Another month with our darling boy. He is standing on his own occasionally, but only until he notices. 🙂 Then he quickly sits or holds on again. Here are some moments from the past month.

It’s interesting to have another baby who puts everything in his mouth. It’s definitely been a while since we had to deal with that.  The other night during prayers, he happened to find a penny on the floor of the girls’ room. I took one out of his hand, but apparently not before he’d swallowed another one first. He was having symptoms that indicated it was still in his esophagus so yesterday was spent at the pediatrician and from there to the Children’s ER, where the nice doctor used a metal detector and a sonogram to locate and identify the object. After giving him crackers and nursing him in the exam room, he wasn’t throwing up anymore so the doctor sent us home with instructions to watch him for other symptoms and look for the penny in a few days. I guess his value is now priceless + $0.01 – is that anything like forever and a day? He’s not totally out of the woods yet, so we’re still being watchful, but at least I was able to get a current weight of 21.5 lbs for this hungry cutie.

Never a dull moment, even with #8. 🙂

    Beautiful boy! Prayers that he stops swallowing what he shouldn’t. This too shall pass. 🙂
