Look Ma… My Hands

Sam recently realised he has these two very useful appendages sticking out from his torso. These things are called arms / hands, and are useful for:

  1. sucking on – tasty treats
  2. grabbing on to larger, encroaching fingers
  3. smacking unsuspecting faces

He has also found his voice, much to our dismay delight! most times, he will try to hold a conversation with anyone he sees, using his recently acquired language skills – cooing, and gurgling. this just makes our day. every. single. time. BUT…One scream can leave our ears ringing. especially when he’s HANGRY (hungry + angry = Hangry).

Sam seems to be developing well as a human being. Hitting his developmental milestones, and surprising us all the time with new actions.

I pray that Sam will develop into a fine young gentleman.

I’ll end with a bit of a poem that has stuck with me since I was 6. I hope that one day, Sam too will appreciate these words. To God be the Glory, The Best is Yet to Be.

“Grow old along with me! The best is yet to be, the last of life, for which the first was made. Our times are in his hand who saith, ‘A whole I planned, youth shows but half; Trust God: See all, nor be afraid!”
Robert Browning
