1 Year Down! How Many More to Go?

Wednesday February 11, 2009

I can't believe I have a one year old! It has been so long since I've been at this stage that I forget how fun, and crazy and downright tiring it is! Samuel is walking, climbing and opening drawers and throwing their contents everywhere. He is starting to do those little things that parents think are the smartest, and cutest things ever...like pat-a-cake, pointing, shaking his booty and open mouth kisses, which I have decided are the best kisses to get.
Sam's birthday was on Friday the 6th and we celebrated with a small little party including our immediate family and grandparents. He had his own cake which took a tumble off of the counter, luckily it was still in it's package, so it could be somewhat salvageable so he could destroy it anyway. It wasn't funny then, but it's funny now. 
The party was fun, and Sam got spoiled. He was so cute with a stuffed animal Gorilla that Brandon's mom bought him. He looked at it, smiled and then leaned his head against it and snuggled. It was so cute.
He is so animated and at that stage where he is inquisitive about what everything is and how it all works. He absolutely LOVES Natalie and she can pretty much do anything and he'll laugh at her. He is a cross between Gene Wilder and Kelsey Grammer (in the Cheers days), with his crazy curly hair. We just let it go because by the end of the day it looks like you didn't comb it anyway. 
I feel so blessed to have our little man, and yes, even grateful for the time we had to wait before he got here. You never know the growth you will go through, or what you learned until the blessings come and you take a look back at the trials. WOW that's deep, I better go before I bust out and start singing Hymns.
I say these things....HAHAHA, Just Kidding!
