Cake smash! (and an important Sammy update)

This Saturday found Sammy and me in Frederick, Maryland, where we helped his friend Lillian celebrate her first birthday in style.  And what's a first birthday without a bunch of cake-smash photos?

We then spent the rest of the afternoon watching all of the little ones run/crawl around and have a great time. There were about ten kids there, ranging in age from five months to six years old, and amazingly enough, there wasn't a single tantrum or breakdown (parents included).  One of the highlights of the afternoon was Lillian's new water table, which translated to a lot of wet, but happy, kiddos--Sammy included, which is why he spent the better part of the day in one of his diapers because I quickly tired of changing him into dry outfits.

Okay, onto the Sammy update--that's probably why you're here, right?  In the midst of all of the chaos of all of the kids playing and carrying on, Sammy took three honest-to-goodness steps.  He walked.  For real.  Fortunately I wasn't the only one who saw it--Lillian's grandma, Judy, saw it, too.  We both sat there on the couch, mouths agape.  It was like all of a sudden Sammy just made up his mind to go for a short walk and off he went.  It was amazing.  I suppose this means that Sammy might actually be walking by the time Captain Husband gets home in a few weeks--my baby boy is going to be a toddler before I know it!

Awesome! It sounds like it was a fantastic time. My son took his first unassisted steps on Christmas Day, and three days later he was scooting all over the house with his stand-and-walk school bus. Now he spends all day running full tilt, never stopping.
