Sammy's tricks

Here is an old (a couple weeks old) video of Sam that shows off pretty much all of his tricks to date. He is so tickle-ish that it's pretty easy to get him to laugh. The clapping is new again. We wouldn't do it for awhile, but now he'll do it on demand. Then he'll climb on anything he can--uh-oh! Enjoy this happy video!

A demonstration of one of Sam's b-day presents

My mom sent Sammy some of those squeaky shoes for his birthday! I tried them right on. They fit perfectly and I LOVE the squeak! Thank you so much mom. The onesie he's wearing was made by my friend Amy. It has a 1 in the middle of the bat (which is glow in the dark) and on the back it says "you've had a birthday shout hurray." I love it!

Sammy turns 1!

I made the cupcakes, Mom Bigler provided the cute candles, and Kellie made the little snakes out of marzipan.

On Sunday while we were in Ojai for conference we had an early birthday party for Sam. I made cupcakes and I got some pictures of Sammy enjoying his. These turned out just like I wanted! We all sang happy birthday to him and I think he got that we were singing to him. At first Sammy didn't like the cupcake, because the frosting was sticking to his fingers, but then he got a taste and ate up all crumbs that he could pick up with his little fingers. Then after he enjoyed his cupcake, he went begging for cheesecake. I think he had a fun time.
