when i am at home in the day it is just sam and i together. there are still things i have to get done and even though i do sit and play with him for a little while the laundry needs switching, the dishes need to get unloaded or loaded and there are still any number of other projects that creep into my day. while i work away trying to get things on my to do list done, sam has time to himself to explore and play. he makes new discoveries and advancements each day in the confines of his home. just the other day i found him inside the toy drawer. up to this point he has only been able to stay up to it and bend over into it to get things out. he has figured out how to get in and out of it now and loved walking around the corner to find him sitting in there completely content. i couldn't get wait to pull out the big camera for this series! i love capturing him in moments like this and it is not always doable. but today he was in there and didn't realize i saw him so i had time to get to my big camera and shoot before it all went away.
