Sam is 15 months old today!

Look at this smiley kid!  He's 15 months old today! Little Sammy.  I wish I had the time and energy to blog about him every day because he's such a cool kid.  Except for the fact that he wakes up at 4:30am every. single. day.  Hence the no time or energy to blog because I'm putting Jack down to sleep at 7:30 and going to bed at 8:30.  But it's all a phase and it's hard to be mad at him when he's usually quite chipper and adorable at 5am.  

I had thought that this age was so great with Jack and I remember why.  Sam learns new things every day and says new words every day.  He can communicate now with pointing, grunts, and words if he really wants too.  "Milk", "crackers", "kitchen", "cookies"….of course.  Because he's brother is obsessed with junk food.  He also tries to sing the ABCs which is so cute.  He's FINALLY into a book or two…the alphabet board books.  I am rejoicing that he will sit through one whole book!  Unfortunately what he's truly obsessed with is TV.  One bad week with two sick boys when the TV was on a lot and now Sam wants it on all the time.  So we will see how that goes.  But one day soon he'll be able to talk and it's going to be adorable.

Sam loves going to all of our social outings whether it's play dates at someone's house or a playgroup park outing or a holiday party.  Just yesterday he went nuts at a Valentine Cookie Decorating party with like 25 kids.  He was so jazzed just to be around all those kiddos.  (p.s.  the opposite of his older brother.) 

Yup, he's certainly a charmer.  A stubborn, won't-sit-still, blonde little boy but a charmer none the less.  

For better or worse, the boys seem to be getting along a little better.  Jack pushes him down and yells at him less and Sam follows after him like a little puppy.  They play together after dinner and I thought it'd be awesome but now it's just TWO boys climbing on chairs and jumping and banging on things.  So not sure I'm happy Jack is teaching Sam all of his terrible habits.  

Sam doesn't seem to mind though because he thinks his brother is pretty cool.

Even when he smothers him in a wrestling match.

Happy 15 months Sam!
