All About Sam

I feel like I haven’t kept up with Sam and his milestones as much as I did Reese.  So I am going to do bullet points about Sam so I will remember how cute and sweet he is right now.

*He cracks us up! If he does something that is funny and we laugh at him, he will do it over and over again.

*He is talking a lot…especially if Reese is not around.  When Reese is here she talks enough for all four of us but when she is gone Sam tries to get all of his talking in. He repeats most things that we say. Anything that has an ‘F’ sound in it sounds like a ‘B’ when Sam says it…”Bish” instead of fish, “Bone” instead of phone. One of my favorite things that he says is “Reese”.  When he says it it sounds more like “Reesssssssse”.  He always says “thank you” and will continue to say it until you say “you are welcome” back to him.

*He is clumsy. Very rarely does he NOT have a bump or bruise on his head.  Just today as we were leaving to go get Reese at VBS he was so excited and was running to the car and tripped in the garage.  I heard his forehead bang on the ground and it scared me to even pick him up.  He bumps in to walls, doors, cabinet corners, etc. And usually he has only tripped over his own feet or was not paying attention to where he is going. I know there is going to be a day when we are rushing to the ER for stitches or broken bones with him. I like to say that I think he was supposed to be Becca’s son because he is soooo clumsy. When he gets hurt he will come to me with his “boo-boo” and make a kissing sound so I will give it a kiss. (If you watch these videos on here, you will see the bump on his forehead from today.)

*He LOVES Reese.  He wants to be doing what ever she is doing.  Since Reese has been at VBS this week he is constantly asking where she is, “Reessssssse?”. I don’t know how he is going to handle her being gone for four days a week once school starts.

*Sam has ALWAYS been a great sleeper! But recently, for some reason, he has been waking up at night.  He will wake up at various times at night and will stay awake for two hours.  At first he would cry when ever I laid him back down so I would be awake for that full two hours too trying to keep him from waking Reese up.  Now when I lay him down after rocking him for 45 minutes (wide awake) he will lay down and then start whining.  I just ignore him from my bed but I am awake as long as he is. It is frustrating! I am not good at being awaken in the middle of the night for no good reason…ask my college room mate! Ha! I am hoping I can get back my super sleeper soon.

*He still has his pacifier.  It is totally my fault.  I know it needs to go but I am scared! I think I just need to make a goal and get rid of it.

*I think Sam has picked up Reese’s love of coloring.  Yesterday while I was on the phone they both ended up coloring together for a while.  This morning while I did the dishes he was coloring alone. 

*He is VERY good at entertaining himself. 

*He is so loving.  Each night before he goes to bed he will give everyone a hug, kiss, say “ni-ni” and “wa woo”.

*He is MESSY! I have the vacuum next to the table because he throws or drops his food all over the floor.  There are certain meals that I just strip his clothes off of him because I know they will get ruined if I don’t.

*He is adventurous. He climbs on the furniture and runs full force to play. I can’t wait to take him to the beach because I think he is going to love the ocean. He loves the water and loves to jump in it over and over.

*He is fun! He is sweet! He is the cutest little boy I have ever seen! I am so blessed to be his mommy!!
