Sam's growing up!

Sam, you are SUCH a character.  You're latest mind-blowing comment was when you jumped into bed with us and asked "What's beyond space?"  When I explained that it was outer space, you looked at me like I was crazy and said "No, BEYOND outer space."  I don't know where you get these amazing ideas, but you are sure full of them.

You are also finding your challenging voice.  When I made you dinner one night, you took one look at it and said, "Mom, you made the absolute WRONG dinner!"  Ouch!

This morning you woke up and dressed yourself in FULL pirate regalia, including the parrot on your shoulder.  After school you came home and dressed up in the same outfit.  You are truly pirate at heart!!

You are becoming quite an amazing artist - your drawings blow us all away.  The level of detail you use is astonishing.  You are VERY particular about how things should look often taking over if me or Dad is drawing with you!  You love drawing skeletons, pirates, pumpkins, spooky scenes, and pictures of our family.  We both think you may become an artist.  You've said that's what you want to be when you grow up.... well, an artist AND a pirate!

You are really taking your role as big brother seriously - playing with and talking to Nicholas all the time.  Nicholas just lights up when he sees you.  You do dances for him, make sure he doesn't roll onto dangerous things, and are always sharing your (safe) toys with him.   Nicholas couldn't hope for a sweeter big brother!

We are so proud of you.
