Signs and stunts

I haven't had a lot of pictures to share as of late. Unfortunately, Sam has discovered the view screen on the back and whenever I whip out the camera, he's immediately on top of me trying to get a peek at the baby.

That is, when he's not trying to launch himself off the couch and causing serious damage to his lip. We had the first really bloody incident the other day. He just sprinted right off the edge, smacked face down on the wood floor. Ouch. His lip got pretty bloody, then pretty puffy. Luckily all his teeth remained intact. It was very traumatic for all of us. I'm sure it's only the tip of the iceberg.

Sam has been using his signs, though he only knows two. Strike that, three. Today he successfully used the sign for thirsty after a 10 minute whining session while signing "more" in the high chair. I kept giving him food and he turned up his nose. Since "more" has become the universal sign for "give me that" and can be used to demand toys, cellphones, knives, what have you, I was quickly running through all the things he could possible want. Then I saw the sippy on the desk and asked him if he was thirsty and did the sign, and tah-dah! He did it. And I gave him the sippy, and he was happy. Now we'll have to see if it makes it through the great mind eraser of sleep into tomorrows repertoire.

Sam has also discovered his belly.

Which if you can't tell, he's pretty smitten with.

We are missing Daddy right now while he's in Montana snowboarding. Though I'm enjoying having the big bed all to myself. It makes the stretches of sleep much more restful. Not a whole lot to report, but here are a few more pics. Hope everyone is well.
