It's been a busy weekend here at the Schlumpf-Butler household. Sam continues to get used to his new surroundings. His schedule is getting more regular, but unfortunately it includes only very short naps (usually about a half hour). He is sleeping pretty well at night, although it can take a long time to get him down.
He attended his first birthday party--for our friend Lincoln, who turned 2, on Saturday morning. It was a great party, outdoors on a sunny day, with about 20 people. There were Bloody Mary's for the adults and an Elmo cake for the kids. Sam especially loved the balloons.
Sam has been eating solid food, too. In addition to the yogurt mixed with rice cereal, we also added sweet potatoes yesterday and he loved them. He likes to feed himself and puts the spoon in his mouth. I love messy kid-eating photos. Look at those hands!
On Sunday our friends John and Leigh Ann visited with their daughter Josephine, who is one month younger than Sam. Sam was even a bit taller than Jovie. She was wearing this adorable sweater I knit her when she was first born. She looks so girly-girl in it. I think Sam and Jo-Jo will be good friends.
