Joyous Day!

I had such a great day today.  My mom, sister and Sammy came over to my house today, and we just had so much fun! I love seeing how much my Mom is enjoying being a grandmother. These pictures really say it all!



Sam continues to charm us every day. Lately, he has become keenly aware of music. He loves hearing music, clapping to music and even making music!  Today, his favorite toys were two painted wooden spoons that he tapped together and made some noise!












































He is now 13 months old, and has learned to stand on his own without holding onto anything. He's not walking yet, but I think it will be happening soon!

I love the squatting picture! He's trying so hard to stay standing AND hold onto those spoons! Love that kid!!!

Walking is the beginning of the end... you will then have a toddler, and the babyism is gone. Sniff Sniff. My baby is 15 months old and running the world, now. Next up... high school graduation! (Okay, so I exaggerate, but the growing happens quickly!) I am torn. I love every single thing she learns, and all of the stages she is in, but I am sad that my baby is growing up so fast!

Love your photos. Sam is a definite cutie! :)

Oh I am so excited to hear about your adoption! What a blessing indeed.

And your nephew Sammy is the cat's meow!!

Any minute is right! I'm guessing he'll be walking at least some within the week!

Ooohh! Sammy is such a big boy now! I still cannot believe how it seems like just yesterday that you announced his birth to the blogosphere!

He is adorable! You and your sister look just like your Mom! Such beauties!! XO
