I am Sam

I want to try and capture each kiddo where there are in life currently.  Here is the first kiddo.

Meet Sam.

He’s 21 months old.  He loves playing outside, drive his cars around the house and take long walks in the park.
He is tall, slender, and will mostly likely reach 3 ft tall by the ripe age of 2.

 He doesn’t have an experienced palate yet.  He loves pumpkin oatmeal, lots of white foods, and carbs.  Milk tops the list, which he demands the moment he wakes up from a long nights sleep.  Crackers, pb sandwiches and bananas suit him just fine.  He has yet to hop on the Paleo bandwagon. 

He loves his big sisters, but at the moment, pals around with Eloise the best.  This might change next year when Lily and Sam have a little bit of time to themselves. 

He knows how to communicate to his sister’s well.  He is often found lying in a heap on the floor when they slightly touch him or refuse to hand over the toy they are playing with.
He’s very fluent in the language of baby, but occasionally he branches over to proper English.  His current English words are Mama, Dada, Nana (doubles for Nana and Banana), papa or poppie (doubles for puppy and papa), kah-ker (cracker), car, bye, hi, and of course, no and mine.

 He can climb bunk beds, book shelves and anything else that could send him falling a large distance to the floor possibly breaking an arm or leg.

Hair cuts are his least favorite activity.  His mom and dad have tried pinning him in their lap and that was an epic failure.  The movie trick was tried the next time, which proved to be a little less of a failure.  However, he still thinks his dad is the coolest guy in town.

He knows his way around a kitchen.  At the first sound of a utensil being pulled out of the drawer, he is sprinting to pull up his chair and begin cooking with his mama.  He’s still working on his culinary skills. 

When his mama doesn't need his help, she will gladly hand over the ipod to get his dinner finally on the table.
Sweet Sam is a blessing to the family.  We enjoy watching him grow and look forward to many more years to come.
