Daddy Love

Thanks Jared for all you do! 
Sam adores you....and so do I :)

It's a GREAT day to be alive!

Every morning is a great morning, 'cause I can roll over to this face smiling at me! Puts a smile on my face every morning. It's a better feeling than chocolate! :)

Sam's preschool fun!

 Sam goes to Preschool. He takes the bus 2 times a week, on Tuesday and Thursday. Before school started, he was excited, but the day came, he had his backpack on, the school bus honked out in front of our house, so we ran outside excitedly. We run up to the bus and then the moment of truth came for him when he had to leave mom. I asked the lady if I could ride the bus with him. She said no. So, I shoved him on the bus and off he went screaming. (He's a shy/clingy personality). After that, every time he talked about the bus, he said, "I don't want to ride it anymore. I'm tired of it." Now we bribe him with an ice cream sandwich. Every time we run out to the bus, I just keep repeating the words "ice cream sandwich, ice cream sandwich"  and then, push him onto the bus. (I need my free time.)   :)   It seems to work every time. Bribery is my best friend :)
His much-deserved ice cream sandwich

Sam at the computer

Sam is a little wiz kid on the computer. He knows how to use the ipad, Jared's blackberry phone, Grandma's computer and phone, VCR, tv, etc. He knows where all the games are located, as well as cool sounds. His favorite sites are PBS and Sesame Street.
