Samuel is so entertaining right now! I really like all the development that happens in the first few years. This, though, has to be one of my favorite stages. He's saying new words every day. Yesterday he worked a whole puzzle without getting distracted or throwing any pieces. Big milestone. He also told me what the pieces were as he was working it. Bigger. I just can't get enough of that little guy!
Dad was working on the kitchen floor last night, using a pry bar and hammer to remove some of the boards. Samuel entered the scene and the boy was in heaven! He'd never looked as happy! He pointed to dad's hammer and squealed an "ooooooohhhhhhhhhhhh" and then labeled it as a "bam bam". It only got better for him when he realized there was another "bam bam". Sam used the pry bar appropriately, had fun with the hammer, and cried when he had to leave the construction site to go to bed. Oh, to be one. Chris and I are hoping that my dad can teach Samuel all he knows and that Samuel will be as talented as dad. Then when Dad's not around to fix and build things, we can call Samuel.
