Fond Memories of my 3rd born child Samuel, born October 17th 1999 at 10:34am, turns 6 today.
Happy birthday Baby boy.
His first attempts at walking with the table..yeah, taking it with him. We called him Samson.
When I weaned him, he was nursed the longest out of all of my babes.
His first jokes
His first road trip
His first swim with Daddy.
His first dances
His first weeks at pre-school, we had the hardest time getting him stable in the environment, But he eventually grew to love it.
His bug fascination
His funny faces and sounds
His speedy ways at homework, to surprise me.
Him sitting in front of a man listening intensely to the importance of respecting and loving his mother
Him holding books, why he loved it, I'm not sure, but it worked.
Him running out to the car to make it on time and earn points with mom.
His apologies when he is sincere.
His loving hugs before bed.
His enthusiasm in telling me a story about his day.
Sam has the wits and comedy of the Coyote, the sight and intensity of the Dragonfly, the strength and introspection of the Bear, and the wisdom of the great Owl.
I love my sweet Sam, he melts me with every smile and laugh.
I am blessed.
