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!

Sam's World Reads Like Cliff-Notes, Not A Daily Blog

MiMi and I are really trying our best
to keep everyone up on my life ... BUT
MiMi set herself up for a real challenge I told her
when she started Simon Says two years ago.
Looking back, life back in early 2009 must seem 
so easy ... she seemed to have spare minutes galore
to chat away with you all on that blog.

Today it is a far different story isn't it? 
We are all getting along beautifully really ... BUT
two little boys is not just double the challenges
to MiMi's time but triple the use of her energies.

So bear with us ... these stories may come in batches
instead of dailies, but it will still be fun to have them
to read when I grow up and want to remember
my fun-filled days with my brother Simon and my MiMi.

On Thursday we all had a visit with some very good friends
of MiMi's and Simon's. Erin Spurrier and her kids Remy and Chase
hadn't gotten to meet me yet so they came for a visit
and it was love at first sight for all of us!
We had a good time getting to hug and snuggle. I hope that
they'll come back and play again soon.  Simon tells me
that they might want to go to the Tot Lot with us
one day when it gets warm! Yay!

 MiMi and I had a lot of "alone" time in early January.
You probably read about this on Simon's blog, but
he became very sick and had to spend four days in the hospital. 
While he was there, I stayed with MiMi.  We had to make up
some new ways to spend our time and MiMi 
grabbed her camera and tried out some portrait work.
 

Then there was my first bath time at MiMi's.

I have developed the talents to
begin sitting up ... thank goodness for Bumbo.
And, yes, it's not too early to begin getting my
chops at learning the ways of Sesame Street and friends.
Simon has a good time with all the lessons, music and dancing
and he wants to take me to the Elmo show one day too!

I am growing quickly ... MiMi will share my latest stats
with you after my next visit to the doctor's office in February.
But a guy's got to work at keeping a good looking body ...
And along with biceps curls, I like to do some legwork too ...
Well, this has been a look at some of the fun times
we have had in January after we were so very lucky
to get Simon back home and healthy again.
 Bye for now ... MiMi and I will be doing this again soon.

Sam's Life in Fast-Forward

I know that everyone thinks that the 
busy days during all the holidays makes
it feel as though it's rush, rush, rush.
Well, I've done my best to keep up and 
really so has MiMi, but she knows that
it's been way too long since she's been able to
share Me with You!

So here goes ...
 I've got a gym membership ...
 I played Santa in a local production ...
 I got the closest thing to a tattoo that I'm allowed ...
 I discovered my tongue and how to communicate with it ...
 I've gone hipstomatic ...
 I made a new friend with a cutie, Doria ...
I've learned that people love to laugh with me!
