Sam eating carrots

Dave fed Sam carrots and rice cereal mixed on Saturday night. Sam was babbling away and spitting the carrots and generally having a great time. Here he is enjoying his supper!

Fall leaves

On Saturday I raked the yard and, for fun, stuck Sam in the middle of one of the piles of leaves to see what he thought. When he wasn't trying to eat them, he really enjoyed the sounds they made as he moved his foot in them. (Sorry about the traffic noise in this one; one of the hazards of taking video outside.)

Sam driving!

Last weekend we were in Saskatoon for Thanksgiving. All of Sam's grandparents were there as well as his cousin, Lily. On Saturday we went to the Western Development Museum. Here is Sam driving with Lily. Thankfully he knows how to shoulder check before he passes :)

Sam the firefighter

We're not sure what the point of the hats were but Sam looked really cute in his! And this is the last of the swimming posts.

More of Sam's swimming - Part 2

Sam loves loves loves kicking when he is on his back in the water. This lesson he didn't get to be in the life jacket which was too bad because that may be his favorite thing in swimming. He kicks and moves his arms and talks and loves the freedom to move he gets. Anyways, here is a sample of his kicking.

Sam's surprise during swimming

Sam is very grown up. He can even have this done to him during his swimming lesson, without complaining.

Sam swinging

Sam has found something new to do while Mommy does the dishes! He seemed to really get the hang of it today. Unlike this weekend when he was very floppy, today he was sitting back and really getting into it.

And here's a hint as to what's coming next week:

Sam drinking from a cup

Sam drank from a cup for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Here he is at Oma and Opa's house this past weekend. Oma is holding Sam while he drinks some water. He gets pretty excited about the cup!

Sam is six months old!!!

Sam turned six months old today. He stuck his entire soother in his mouth backwards and freaked out. I think it hurt. He went to Kindermusik and sat for about 20 seconds. Then he had a nap. He was happy in the car while Mommy and Daddy ran one errand. And he got new socks and a Hallowe'en sleeper at West Edmonton Mall. Then he went to the synagogue and helped Daddy make a decoration for the sukkah. After that he was so tired he went to sleep all by himself, after Mommy fed him. This is a video we took of Sam, while we were singing "Happy Half Birthday to Sam." Daddy was changing Sam into his night diapers and pajamas as we were singing to him.
