December Daily 2011 :: Day 07
Samuel turned 10 months today — that’s two months away from being a year!! Oh, my! Where did the time go?
Because it is my little man’s 10-month birthday (and since it is his first holiday season), I thought it was appropriate to devote a page to him. Here’s a look at Day 7.
Journaling :: 10 at Ten Months — Samuel, at ten months, you …
1. Love to climb all over us. And pull yourself into a standing position. You love viewing things from this new vantage point.
2. Rock on your knees more and more every day – getting ready to crawl on all fours. You army crawl like nobody’s business – especially when you spot something you want.
3. Clap your hands in excitement.
4. Fight sleep. Everyday. Would rather play than sleep – that’s why naps at school are only about 30 minutes per day. You are so interested in other things; you can’t lie still while we change your diapers or clothes.
5. Reach for us all of the time. You love to be held most of the time. Occasionally, you wiggle your way down to stand. And when you want to stand, you won’t bend your legs to sit.
6. Love your toys. You especially love to knock down blocks.
7. Whine and kick your legs when you see a bottle.
8. Are a scientist in the making. You like to pick little things up with your thumb and pointer finger, hold it out in front of your face, and examines it fully by moving your little hands around.
9. Adore your dad. You like to visit him in his office. When you see him, your eyes light up, you squeal in excitement and flash the biggest smile ever – a smile that shows off your two adorable little teeth!
10. Love to snuggle and rest your head on our shoulder. We must admit – we love it too!
Tucked in this envelope is the story of Sarah’s quilt. I helped my friend, Jeanne, turn an idea of a photo blanket into a cherished heirloom. I designed the quilt and Debbie from the Creative Needle meticulously pieced everything together and quilted it with love. Debbie, your work is absolutely amazing.
Samuel loves to take the books out of the basket and look through them. Tonight, he did just that. He took them out one by one — touching and examining each with eyes of wonder and delight.
