a day of firsts…

June 1, 2010

Today was a monumental day in the life of our little Sam!

A day of major firsts and milestones reached.  Well, as major as things can get for an 11 month old!

In order of least to most important…

1.) Sam tried ice cream for the first time today!

Raise your hand if you like ice cream…

…yep, he’s a Rigney!

(I’m honestly questioning whether or not this one really is the least important.  Feels dishonest.)

2.) Goodbye, bottles!  Sam will only drink from a sippy cup…

Now, properly holding the sippy cup is another story.  However, in his defense, his other hand was occupied with cleaning out our refrigerator one. item. at. a. time…

You thought I was kidding.

3.) Sam started walking today!!

Now, his walking is by no means perfected, but he took actual steps today!  I mean, it’s not like we are counting how many steps he took (seven to be exact).

**Disclaimer: These videos contain seriously annoying, overly dramatic, extremely high-pitched, crazy-in-love-with-her-son praises throughout.  Watch at your own discretion.  No babies were harmed in the filming of these videos, just their ears…due to the seriously annoying, overly dramatic, extremely high-pitched, crazy-in-love-with-her-son praises coming from the producer.  You’ve been warned.

and now for some bloopers…

Sam would like to give a special thanks to Bill, Cindi, and Regan Walsh and Talitha Piper for being an incredibly supportive audience for him tonight!  He is especially grateful for the ice cream.

    What a BIG day for Sam!! My favorite part is when Sam can’t figure out how to stand up until he has Joe’s pants to pull up on. =) What fun! Mommy will be busy keeping up!

    Oh…I just saw the “Sam Walks!” videos. They remind me of my Sarah taking her first steps about 21 years ago. I’m so glad you’re recording so many of Sam’s firsts. You won’t be sorry you invested your time this way….but, you already know that.
