3 year old Samantha.

little miss 3 year old.
how we do love you so.

you are our sweet little sammy.
with your beautiful smile. crystal blue eyes. cascading blonde hair. and sparkly personality.

you are strong willed and determined. you know what you want. and you usually get it.

you desperately want to be one of the big kids. you love everything from pink and princess to worms and dirt.

your dance moves surpass mom and dad's. and your ability to sing "call me maybe" and "stuck like glue" is amazing.

you are sweet. and cuddly. and vivacious. and independent. and stubborn. and a lover of shoes.

3 year old Sammy oh how we love you so.

let your little light shine.

and your little heart sparkle.

we jumped off waterfalls.

we munched on snacks.

we got thrown off waterfalls.

we boated. we tubed. we water skied.

a great end to summer 2012.

sammy is very into writing these days.
I asked her to write "mom" for me...
this is what she wrote...

not too bad for a 2 year old!
this mom was impressed.
