I almost feel guilty for my lack of posts lately. And it isn't like Samuel hasn't had a lot of new tricks the past few months either, in fact he has which keeps us so busy. I mean heck, I even forgot to celebrate his 14 month birthday!
So my toddling boy is testing his independence daily. He likes to walk on his own and looks at you like you are a crazy person if you try to hold his hand. Oh and even more crazy if you tell him he can't walk in the street only the sidewalk. I know, I should totally let him do that...

Speaking of vocabulary, he is starting to use is words in the correct context. His vocabulary consists of Hi, hello, bye, more, me, mommy, da da, thank you (dan do), and he attempts book. He says a whole lot of other words but I have yet to find a baby translator to tell me what he is saying. But we are learning to communicate.

Well there you have it. And all before Samuel even woke up. I
