Call me "Stands with Feet"

Sam scooched over to me and slowly but surely pulled himself up into a standing position! Good Lord. Here comes trouble now! I predict he is walking by his first birthday, Christmas at the latest. I could be wrong, but that's the feel i'm getting now. He's funny - he grunts and sticks his tongue out when he's really working on something challenging him. THAT'S MY BOY!!!

The Next Larry Bird?

[Well, not that Larry Bird is the best LOOKING person, but i'm mostly referring to his "vertically gifted" attributes.]

Sam had his 9 mo. check up today. He's 31 inches long (that's 5 inches short of THREE FEET! Hehe... I like to think of it that way) and weighs 21 lbs. Doc says he looks good, is right on course, and by his stats, just might turn out to be a big boy! Ron and i think its funny to imagine he'll end up 6 foot 3 and towering over us. I would just love it! Wouldn't it be funnier if he was all pumped out and athletic to REALLY live up to his moniker! ;-) We'll just have to keep his hair long, i suppose.

The above picture: This is how Sam celebrated the two hepatitus (sp) shots he received this morning. He's wearing a "frog skin cap" (read: little blankie with a stuffed froggie on one corner) and a bull ring (read: colorful ring toy with a big rubber ball on it). I can't wait to see if he's the joker of the family, constantly cracking us up (not that Ron and i don't do a pretty good job!). He's already comical at 9 mos. old, that's for sure!

Telford Family Vacation

Well, its been just about a month - long overdue for an entry here. We went to Maine for a week and had a GREAT time. So did Sam, experiencing both lake and ocean water (he prefers lake - like his mom!).

Right now, Samson is cutting five teeth at once (is that a record, or the norm?). I call him Chompers. He'll be nine months old in a week. He's standing very strong and scooching around. Will he walk by Christmas? Watch out world!

Enjoy the photos!
