Happy 5th Birthday Sammy!

Today you turn five Sammy! Here are five things we want to remember about Sammy in this, your 5th year!

  1. This year, trucks gave way to Super Hero, Transformer and Power Ranger action figures. (What IS the difference between them all, I ask?) Karate action and "saving the world" seem to appeal to you more than rocks and shovels. However, when it came right down to it, you chose the construction site cake over the Power Ranger cake!

2. Daddy coached your soccer team this year. This is the first year you played an organized sport. I use the word play lightly here because mostly, you just followed the kids up and down the field. Sometimes, you pretended that you were flying, and one time, when Daddy finally asked you to throw the ball in to play, you couldn't because you had been carrying a tiny dinosaur in your hand as you ran up and down the field.

3. You are at a new preschool where you are quite a ladies man. Your favorite friends are Charlotte and Charlotte. You wish for your birthday party was to sit between the Charlottes while enjoying your truck cake! (Below, Sammy with the Charlottes)

4. You are a great big brother to Lily!

5. You still love to snuggle at bed time, sit on laps for movies and get hugs and kisses from Mommy and Daddy!

We Love You Sammy!

Sammy is ALWAYS going to be a ladies man! I mean, look at him! Even my Mom, who has never met him is charmed by him.

Happy birthday, little guy!

Happy Birthday, Sammy! We hope that you had a great day, and can't wait to celebrate with you soon.

Mar, what a great picture of him. Those eyes are just beautiful!

First, I love number two! It just makes me laugh that he was carrying the little dinosaur in his hands. Second, he is very handsome. Third, one of the
Charlotte's mom used to be my French teacher in high school. Madame Conway.

I also wanted to add one if I could - He always says Sammy Reynolds Robert and it just cracks me up!
