Gabes First Fish

This is long overdue but I'm finally getting the video up of Gabe's first fish, caught about a year ago with Papa Featherstone.  It's a bit slow at the beginning, but it's worth the wait.

Sam's First Words

Wednesday, May 4, 2011

Sam is one year old!!

I can't believe it but Sam is officially one year old as of yesterday.

I thought I would write the activities of the day -  "A day in the life of Sam".

Woke up about 7:30 am and had morning snack (a little milk). Squirmed to get out of my reach as I tried to change his diaper. Joined us for morning prayers - didn't close his eyes but was a distraction as he climbed up Gabe and mommy.

Ate cheerios and yogourt for breakfast. Clapped when he finished. Went upstairs to help with the laundry - mostly banged on the washing machine - it sounds really cool.  As mommy was folding laundry snuck into the bathroom and sampled the soap. Mommy confiscated the soap. Found the garbage and tried to eat some paper. Mommy confiscated that as well.

Time for morning nap - after getting dressed and reading some stories. Sleep for about 1 1/2 hour.

Wake up have a snack and time to go to the grocery store to buy a birthday cake. While at Wegman's Sammy enjoys the wonderful pizza - loves to chew on the pizza crust. Keeps Sammy occupied the entire grocery trip.

Take Gabe to preschool.

Come home and wrestle with mommy. Loves to jump on mommy and growl.

Another nap. While in bed, throw blankee on the floor and cry for a bit until mommy retrieves it. Throw it on the floor again - this time no response from mommy. (sorry buddy).

After a very short nap (due to blanket dropping) go get Gabe from preschool. Try to stay awake when we get home but still very tired. Make another attempt at a nap. It works.

Wake and have some milk and dinner - spaghetti and meatballs - YUM.

After dinner have about three bites of chocolate cake - not too sure he likes it.

After dinner we open presents and have a dance party. Sam bobs his head and shakes his booty.

Bath time - the highlight of the evening and then bedtime.

That is pretty much the gist of it. Sam isn't walking yet but he can crawl fast and walking isn't too far away. More adventures will ensue, I am sure of it.

He is such a fun, happy baby. He laughs easily and he is loved by him family very much.
