Sammy doesn't say Pony Tail, she just says Pony.  So Pony it is when she comes over and I fix her 'do.

I do it

Sammy prefers to tie her own shoes.

Saturday, May 29, 2010


Tie-it is Sammy's way of saying, "Shhh, QUIET"  the baby birds are sleeping!!  (right behind the light is their nest)

Sammy showed up in theses the other day and I was laughing so hard!  Leave it to Mommy to find True Religion jeans for her daughter!  I just love the fact that when this girl bends over you see an Elmo diaper not a thong!

Mmmm, Parmesan

The other day at lunch, Sammy saw a tub of parmesan cheese and decided the world would end if she didn't have it.  As you can see, the world didn't end.  You're welcome.

For you, Auntie

Sammy had just put the binkie in Camden's mouth and then she decided that Auntie needed one, too!

Fashion plate

Everyone knows that before you leave the house, check the mirror.  Hat? Check.  Coat? Check.  Necklace? Check.  Gladiator Sandals? Check.  Ready to go.

Sammy loves her noodles!  She's become a two-fisted eater with them!  Be careful Sammy; if you take after your Mommy's side of the family, no problem.  But if you take after your Daddy's side of the family, pasta will be the death of your hips.

More bubbles

Sammy's friend Sherill keeps plenty of candy and toys available for a little girl who visits at Mommy and Daddy's work.  By the time Sammy was done blowing bubbles, the soap had saturated the carpet in spots and her dress was soaked too.  No need to add detergent to that load, Mommy.

Beach Babe

Sammy and her posse went to Tahoe for a day of sunning.  Notice how her hair is starting to whip around in the breeze?

Where's your token, buddy?

Sammy is learning the fine art of backing up a 40' coach.  She just can't reach the pedals yet.

For those of you who didn't get to enjoy this on you go!  One of our all time favorties!

Rosy Cheeks

Sammy got some rosy cheeks from her trip to Tahoe with the girls.  She was SOOO tired from that day, she slept in till 9am!!!  I had to go and check on her just to make sure she was still breathing!

I'm ready for my close up, Mr. deMille

Finally, enough hair for a ponytail.  I only had to wrap it in the band about 20 times!

(sometimes my reference humor sails over the younger generation.  If you do not understand the title...please google it.)

I can explain

Rubber Band Shooting from Lorna King on Vimeo.

Um, well.  Ah.  Every two year old with absolutely no reference for logic or reasoning should always be shown how to shoot a rubber band.  Especially if said two year old is about to have a brand new baby sister named Whosits.  Because you know, when they're in their teens...Sammy will be shooting Whosits for getting into her clothes.....

I should have known

Letting Sammy feed herself slightly liquid foods is a testament to a grandmother's patience.  Actually, I have tons of patience because I hold the camera in her face all the time waiting for moments just like this.

I'm still laughing

When Sammy woke up from her nap yesterday, her hair was a blonde whirling dervish.  I couldn't stop laughing at how wild it was.
She's gonna hate this when she's 14.

Monsters Inc

When the movie Monsters Inc came out, we took the kids to see it.  'Kids' being a relative turn.  Yes, we still took kids to see Disney movies...WHEN THEY WERE IN THEIR 20'S! Anyway....:::cough:::, Mommy gave me this stuffed animal, Sully, for Christmas because she knew how much I enjoyed the character.  When Sammy was watching the movie yesterday, I gathered up Sully and gave it to Sammy.  She carried it around with her for the whole morning.

Back in the saddle again...

Hi folks!  We're back from our wonderful vacation but let me tell you...we sure missed all the little ones back home!  Thank you again, Mommy, for keeping this blog going with current photos and for doing the same with Panden's (Camden's).  First day back with Sammy involved watching Monster's Inc.  Daddy liked watching it, too.

Horsie ride

This is one of Samantha's two horses that she has.  This is her after nap horsie and the other one is the morning and before she goes to bed horsie.  She loves riding them!  This one that she is riding used to be my horse when I was little.

That #6 she just doesn't like to say!

Saturday, May 8, 2010


Finally we are seeing Samantha get some hair.  Still no haircut in the near future, but it is curly in the back and very blonde!!!  She actually has hair blowing in the wind!

Friday, May 7, 2010


I was trying to get a picture of Samantha and her new horsie pjs, but apparently she was more interested in watching Clifford!  She was like, "what?" get on with the picture.  There was no card with these pjs but we think they are from Uncle Mitch and Aunt Christy :-)

An we're out...

Poor Sammy has a moler coming in and so she fell asleep on the floor at 12:30pm and Christopher and I had to wake her up to eat at almost 6:00pm!!!!  She then proceeded to fall asleep on me around 7:15!!!  Poor tired little girl!

Ready for bed...

Samantha in her robe that she got for her birthday, comes with bunny ears and all.  She puts on the robe and slippers every night and says, "warm."

American Girl Collection....

Nana and Papa had bought Sammy the bitty baby from the American Girl collection.  Well I found some bunny slippers and a robe from the American Girl Collection and Sammy LOVES the robe and slippers.  However, I am not going back to that site anytime soon, talk about becoming broke!  (this was a bday present from us)

Driver's Seat

Samantha's Daddy started a habit of letting Sammy ride on his lap when pulling into our driveway at home.  So now, all she say's is "lap, lap."

1,2,3 and blow....

This was on Sammy's actually birthday...I made her a brownie with some whipped cream on top.  She was very excited to blow out her candles, however she was not going to let go of those balloons!
