Little Sammy is 2 1/4 years old! Except I can't call him "little" anymore because he's huge! He really looks a lot older than he is.
Sammy remains a lovely, happy, mild-mannered boy. Sometimes he tries to copy Jack's angsty moods and yelling but it's just not the same. He doesn't have it in him. :)
He's started at preschool for just a couple of mornings a week and, after a brief adjustment period, he seems to really like it. He loves other people, other kids, and playing with all the toys and outdoor equipment. And, in a huge 180 from my experience with Jack, every time I pick him up from school, Sam immediately, unprompted, starts telling me all about his day, what he played with, who played with him. It's adorable.
So happy 2 1/4 birthday Sammy! We love you!
