These pics are from Mother's Day and Baby Dedication.
I can't believe how fast this little man of mine is growing up! Sam is all over the place now and gets there very quickly! He wants to be walking really bad. He will push his toys everywhere and walk taking really high steps. I don't think it will be very long before he is walking.
Sam is eating very well now. The little guy has 4 teeth on the top and 4 teeth on the bottom. Table food has made him pretty happy. His mama is very thankful that he is NOTHING like her when it comes to what he will eat (maybe more like her in the quantity). He will try just about anything you put in front of him. Okra and squash are some favs and last night at the Red Elephant he ate broccoli and loved it. YAY!! He likes green stuff! He's not too big on pieces of fruit, I think they are still a little funny in texture to him. He did eat some peach slices the other night and I was very entertained as they slid all over the place as he tried to tackle them with those sweet little hands.
Sam weighed close to 21 pounds at our last drs visit. We have had a little run at the drs office lately. Sam had viral bronchitis about 3 weeks ago and some type of eye infection going on a couple of weeks ago, so we are looking forward to being all better again soon hopefully. Right now we are being visited by Mr. Snot and Cough. They seem to be regular guests around Folkes Lane even though we have tried everything to ban them.
Sam loves water!! I'm sure you remember all of the bath videos and pics from even NICU days. He still loves a good bath, but now.....he has seen brighter days when it comes to water. Mammaw bought Sam and his cousin Elizabeth a small pool about a month ago. We pulled Sam's out last weekend. He wasn't so sure about it at first but warmed up quickly. Although I will say that he was more intrigued by the blades of grass he was trying to eat while playing in his pool. Yesterday afternoon his Aunt Cori sat him on the steps of the big pool and he splashed his little heart away! I do believe that the pool will be a hit with this little guy.
I am so happy to say that school is out for the summer and I am looking forward to playing with my sweet little boy. I'm sure there will be a lot of pics taken in the next couple of months. I will try my best to update a little more often. A couple of other things that have taken place since Sam's birthday post would be the Baby Dedication that we were thrilled in being able to participate in this year on Mother's Day and he had his 1 year pics done at the studio and oh how sweet he was during that process.
I am so thankful for this precious little guy!
