mr sam is getting so strong! when i turned away, he was sitting on the floor next to his walker thing (we call it his scooter, since he scoots all over) and when i turned back, this is what i saw: he proceeded to fall on his face while i was messing w/ the camera. bad mama. but one of the (many!) things i love about this kid is HE DOESN'T CARE when he gets hurt! if it's a real doozie, he'll whimper or let out a few cries, but then he's over it. onto the next thing to chew or rip or otherwise destroy.
this is his favorite way to play right now--give him the basket of toys and he pulls everything out. it keeps him occupied and content to play by himself for quite a while, so the mess is noooo problem! i love that he's getting a bit more independent.
i've started watching my friend's little girl once a week. so far, so good...although if sam is around, i have to keep a close eye. he LOOOOOVES other babies, and would have no qualms about dumping her out of the bouncy seat and making a toy out of her!
sam is nearly nine months old...and i only JUST NOW got his abc's up on the wall...mostly because it required use of a laser level and every time i thought of it, the baby was napping. his room finally has something on the wall, and it looks pretty nice if i do say so meself.
