At the beginning of the month, Sam started saying “ball” and pointing… Continue reading July 2017, Sam at 13 Months Old

April 2017, Sam at 10 Months Old, Easter, and Vision Board 2017

I ended my last post with the Peppa Pig show we took Ari to at the beginning of April, leaving Sam home with a babysitter. I worked the next two days, then took Sam’s picture a couple of days after he turned 10 months old. At the end of my last post, I also mentioned… Continue reading April 2017, Sam at 10 Months Old, Easter, and Vision Board 2017
