Dear Sam

Dearest Sam,

Today marks your 10th month of life. At least outside the womb...I can definitely attest to the fact that you have been making an impact on my world (and body) for a lot longer than that. Several times today I caught myself looking at you and wondering where the past 10 months have gone. In some ways it seems like you just arrived, peeking your sweet head full of dark hair into our world. Other times, I can't remember there ever being fewer than four of us.

I had my doubts (and some days they resurface) that I could juggle two boys 2 and under...thank goodness your big brother turned 3, right? : ) But, I was reminded this morning that God chose us for one another. You for my son and me for your mom. He blessed our family with another precious son and brand-new brother who has been such a joy. We're all enjoying watching you master new skills. Like your closed-fist wave. Your expanding vocabulary, which includes da-da, ba-ba & occasionally ma-ma. Your growing affection for standing. Your ever increasing appetite and insistence that you can indeed eat whatever everyone else is eating.

I'm so thankful you are a part of our family.

Happy 10th month, Sam! I can't believe you and Amelia have been around that long already, but like your mommy says, I have trouble remembering when you weren't here eating puffs by the fistful and laughing at all those other silly babies who still only digest jar food. You sure are a sweet boy, now slow down the growing because I'm not ready for you and Amelia to be 1!
