12 months! 1 year! wahoo! So this month, I offered Sam a cracker and a toy, laid him down and by the time I opened my camera, he had eaten the cracker and was up and ready to move. Laying down was not happening for this birthday boy.
Sam loves eating oranges, splashing in the bath, playing with his collection of wheeled objects, walking along furniture, opening and closing things, and giving big cheesy grins. He was sick for most of Christmas break and and ever since, he has started laying his head down on your shoulder when he's just woken up, ready for a nap or not feeling good (since we seem to be on another round of sickness). It's dreamy to have him snuggle so much.
He also likes to wipe his nose all everything, especially a clean shirt or the couch. He's getting two more teeth and we are thinking that we may actually need to cut his hair, at least around his neck.
He says uh-oh, mama, and dadablahblah on repeat. He likes to open the kitchen drawers and we've just moved all the dangerous things and let him have free reign. They are only young once, right? He got some blocks for Christmas and loooves to clap them together or knock over a tower that you just built.
