He's Four

Happy Birthday my little Sam man!

Despite the fact that I keep asking you to stay little, you keep getting bigger. I really wish that you would listen better! You've changed so much in the last year. Other than the fact that you still poop in a diaper, there really isn't much that is "babyish" about you anymore. You use words like actually and supposedly (but you also say "Lady pop" and "Lemolaid". You can dress yourself. You don't want to eat off of your plastic Elmo plate anymore. You still love trucks and anything that moves, but your interests are expanding. Dinosaurs and The Land Before Time movies are your latest faves.

You are a great big brother. Gracie is very lucky that she will always have you to watch out for her. I know that sometimes she drives you crazy, but you always do such a good job sharing with her and teaching her how to do things. I love watching you play together.

You run everywhere you go and have more more energy than anyone I have ever met. You are faster and more coordinated than any of your friends, and you know it. While I wouldn't say you are humble, you are most definitely very gentle and thoughtful. You have a very tender heart and I am so proud of you.

I hope that no matter how big you are, you always know that your mommy loves you. You will always be my best buddy.

Happy B-day Sam!!!! I love the "Lemolaid". It is sad when they outgrow those kind of cute sayings and words.
