Nathan replaced the photos on our photo wall with pictures from Samuel's first year of life. So sweet!
Enjoying some nice weather outside while Grammy walk the birthday boy around.
Hmmm. Chili for lunch.
Apparently we have made it to the stage of goofy picture poses from Lucy.
Again, goofy girl. :)
Singing "happy birthday" to Samuel.
Ben "helping" Samuel blow his candle out.
Sam's first bite of anything cake-like (that I know of). He has issues with gluten, so I ended up making gluten-free chocolate cupcake. They were really good!
This face means he approves.
Playing with the fun pull toy from Nana. All the kids think this thing is the greatest. It is really cute.
I can still hardly believe our little man is a year old. He is not near walking, which isn't surprising since both Lucy and Ben walked at 15 months (hopefully he will be soon...our backs hurt from holding his hands as he has us "walk" him around the house). You can tell he wants to keep up with Lucy and Ben, especially Ben. He loves being wherever they are, and trying to get into their things. He is saying more words (Mama, Daddy, no, ruff ruff ruff, yes, uh oh...I can't remember the rest right off hand), and is able to communicate what he wants much better than Ben was at this point.
We are so grateful for this little guy. He is so sweet. Really, so sweet. Although I am ready for him to walk, I know that I will miss how often we get to carry him about these days. I can't believe he is going to be a big brother in four months!
