January 2010

A new year has brought a lot of changes for Mr. Sam - he's now crawling and standing holding on to furniture and toys! At his 10-month checkup, he weighed 17lbs 12oz and was 28.75 inches. He is getting much more demanding, and his favorite game involves chasing and then tackling the cats. The cats are not amused.

It feels like we've all been sick all month, but we did manage to find some time for fun in between sneezes. One of the best parts was a visit from our friends, Reza and Teresa, with their son Julian and their iPhones.

Here are our pictures.

Christmas 2009

We had a wonderful Christmas, spending Christmas Eve with the Russells and Christmas Day with the Matousek/Pilkanis clan. Emily and Sam had a blast opening all of their presents and were surprised with a Christmas Eve visit from Santa. Emily kept Great Grandma very busy with games of tag and showing her all of the toys in her room - what a great Great Grandma indeed!

Overall, Sam's first Christmas was a huge success, and it was incredibly fun watching Emily enjoying her family and gifts.

There are a lot of pictures here, but the kids were so cute I couldn't resist posting them all.

Enjoy our pictures!
