Finally, a real post

As you can see in the pictures below (and to the right), March has been a pretty fun month. Sam turned 3 months old on the 17th and has really started having fun, playing with toys, making sounds, standing up (while supported - just wait for the video coming soon) and going on adventures to the zoo and two art museums. He's had lots of guests including a really nice visit from Grandpa Jerry for a few days last week. Our friends Ryan, Devon, Dana, Jay, Dave and Tracy have all come over at different times to play too. That's not to say he hasn't had his troubles, most recently throwing his sleep schedule out the window. But all-in-all, he is doing quite well - and continues to grow in all directions.

Quick March update

So, the last couple of weeks have been fun. Sam is really starting to interact with things. He can sit in a bouncy chair and stare at Mallory the Monkey and/or a set of plastic rings. Sometime he even bats at or grabs them and has lots of fun making them rattle. He also has fallen in love with himself when he looks in the mirror (like father, like son).

Last week, Sam went to the zoo for the first time with Mom and Auntie Zaidee and his cousins Grace and Nico. Sam had a blast looking at everything, though, we are unsure if he actually saw an animal or not. Overall, he is really starting to show his personality as a curious and generally happy (lots of smiles) little guy.

Also - on a somewhat related note - we received a very nice diaper bag in the mail the other day, however, it did not come with a card or any note. If you were the kind soul who sent that to us, leave a comment so we can send a proper thank you.

Update: A big thank you to Jeana for the beautiful diaper bag AND rocking octopus!
