Adam and Leah and Sammy came to Rhode Island on Friday... This was Sammy's
first visit to the State of Rhode Island and Providence Plantation.
He is getting to be so big... one year old and about twenty-five pounds.
Just like his father did at the same age, he pulls himself up and stands
and will walk if his hands are being held, but otherwise he seems quite
content with crawling. (When Gillian was born I had thought that I had
gained some parenting expertise from Adam -- so much to my shock and startlement,
Jill began walking by herself at nine months... and Jeremy was two weeks
earlier than that.) Of course once Adam did began walking he didn't slow
down at all... when he was in high school he was an accomplished runner
on track and cross-country teams all four years.
Sammy is delightful, friendly, cheerful, bright, animated, curious, talented,
etc. (Hey, you can trust me on this; after all, I am his grandfather!)
Oh yeah, and artistic and musical and talented in all areas.
It is marvelous to watch Adam and Leah with Sammy -- there are two loving
and dedicated parents. Of course there were times this weekend when they
were pushed to the background as Nanna and Grandpa just had to take over
playing with Sammy. *grin*

ones because the water is quite shallow and not cold and the surf is gentle.)
