What Boy Doesn't Love A Campfire?

Yesterday my Uncle Charley came over to MiMi's house
not only to visit but also to help MiMi with some yardwork
in her backyard.  And it was exciting because part of
the job called for a bonfire!!!

I think my Uncle Charley will introduce me to many new things
and so this is just the first ... my very first campfire!
Wait a minute ... one of these faces is not like the other!

There, that's better ... two scrunched up faces!

And, of course, we had to share the good times with
my brother, Simon. 
We want you back soon Uncle Charley ... you
come up with some pretty cool things to do!

In Sam's World I Am 6 ... Months Old That Is!

 Aunt Kerrian shares her birthday balloons
with me ... yea, 6 months old today!
 My BIG brother Simon was so helpful
in putting all the balloons in my reach.
 Well, Simon, thank you ... hey, can you see me here?
I got my 6 month check-up today too
and here are my new stats.
I am now 17.5 lbs. and 26 " tall.

For those of you who like to do that thing called
"comparing" ... at 6 months Simon was 17.2 lbs. and 25" tall.
Lookout BIG brother, you may be looking up
to me one day ... but, I'll always be looking up to you!

Sam's World Has Moved Outside!!!

It feels like my whole life has been spent playing indoors.  
Okay well it's only been five months
but that's a lifetime to me!
I'm just learning how to enjoy some new
and fun ways to play in my exersaucer and jumping seat,
but now that the weather is warmer, 
some days MiMi takes us outdoors!!!  
Turns out there's a whole new world out there
to play in a box filled with sand!!!
I've got time to watch Simon and learn the tricks of 
building piles with a shovel and moving them around
with the trucks and diggies.
But get ready, it won't be long before I'll be 
able to sit up all on my own 
and if I fall over in sand, no big whoops ... 
that might be fun!

Sam Says He Is On A Roll !!!

The weeks are passing by and I will soon be 5 months old!
My 4 month check-up was last week
and we are here to report just how big I am!
I was 15 lbs. 14 oz. and 24 inches long.
I'm almost ready to say 24 inches high because
I have begun sitting in my exersaucer and using
my legs to push myself vertical!!!

Another BIG new skill for me in this past week
is that I can now do a flip!
Well, okay not that kind of flip
but it's still pretty exciting, isn't it?

Sam's Biggest Fan Is Also His Big Brother!

When MiMi lets us have some TV time
with our friends at Sesame Street
Simon never lets me miss the good parts ...

And if I need some entertainment
when the TV is a No-No,
well look who is always ready to
rock my world!

Simon, I couldn't ask for a better big brother!
