Sam sweats a lot when he sleeps. The other day Sam fell asleep in my arms so I got to play with his hair.
It got all sweaty so I played with it. See how it's sticking up? He's got enough now to style!
Look how long my hair has gotten! It's way too long. Sam it always grabbing it and my hair is everywhere in the bathroom, clogging the sink and I'm constantly picking it off of things. It was driving me crazy!!!
So I cut it all off! All 13 inches! I donated the braid to Locks of Love. It is super easy to do now and Jared even likes the style.
It was fun to shock everyone at church. Some of the primary kids even commented on it.

On the 17th Jared and I went on a hike with some friends of ours from church--the Spencers. It's fun spending time with this family because they have a son that is just three weeks younger than Sam. This hike was HARD! But the guys were man enough to carry the kids the whole time--so that was nice. I like to think of us as adventurous and not crazy for taking our 6 month old on this hike. BUT, as you can see, it sure was a beautiful trail.

Hanging out with Daddy

Jared was trying to watch the TV and hold Sam at the same time. This was the only position that worked. Sam gets so squirmy and when you don't let me squirm around he gets mad. So he squirmed right up on to Daddy's shoulders and was content to play with Daddy's hair until the end of the show.

He loves his jumper!

THANKS MOM AND DAD for this thing! He loves it so much. And he has even learned to swivel around to see all the toys.

More News!

Last week was such an eventful week for Sam. He got a new jumper, a new room and... a new tooth! It is his bottom left front tooth. It cut through on Saturday afternoon--poor guy. He has nor been a happy guy for the last week, and I'm afraid it's not going to be over soon. The right tooth doesn't look far behind.
"Please, no pictures!" said Sam.

Sam's new room

While Jared's mom was here for Easter she helped me put up Sam's crib and re-arrange his room.
Having the crib up lets me put things under it so it really cleared and opened up the room. I wasn't expecting that.
I wanted to take pictures to remember this moment in his life--his first night in his crib!
The the next morning--he slept through the night, so he must like it. He is such a good boy.

Happy Easter Sam!

My parents gave this to Sam for Easter. It is actually a gift for me too because my arms were getting super tired from helping Sam jump in my lap. It is such a fun toy!
Sam loves it! And he knew just what to do when we first put him in it.
The rainbow behind him is his favorite toy (the seat swivels) but this part lights up and makes music and animal sounds.
He just goes crazy in it. We saw him just look back and forth between the toys. He was probably thinking "so many toys--where do I start?" THANKS MOM and DAD! We love you

two random cute pictures

No reason, we just wanted to take some pictures of Sam. This is the closest we could get to a smile when the camera is out. He usually just gets this spacey look on his face--wondering what this thing is that we keep putting in his face. You've all seen that face.
