23 Months Old

Could Samuel actually be this close to turning two?!  I'm just amazed at how quickly time passes and how blessed I am to be his mommy.

In his 23rd month, Samuel:
Wore size 4 diapers.
Wore size 5 1/2 wide and extra wide shoes.
Wore mostly 18 month clothes.
Broke his leg in two places.
Wore a temporary cast for a week.
Then was given a big blue cast...
     just in time for KY to win the tournament!
Was a big fan of basketball.
Did not like having to crawl and NOT walk.
Asked to be held quite often.
Enjoyed a visit from Brother James.
Actually LIKED James.
Was still very shy and timid.
The attention from his cast was way too much!
Loved listening as books were read.
Was a big singer.
Could count to 10.
Said most all of the ABCs.
Devoured sweets...  especially cake.
Helped Mommy and Daddy celebrate
     their 5 year anniversary.
Got an Easter basket from MDO,
     although he couldn't "hunt" any eggs.
Missed a whole month of MDO.
Learned to pull up and stand on his cast
     within a quick two weeks.
Didn't like having his picture taken.
Looked awfully adorable on Easter Sunday.
Would not smile for the camera.
Had a favorite stuffed bunny rabbit...
     that went EVERYWHERE with him.
Had his 2nd birthday party a month early.
Shared his party with Daniel who turned 3.
Loved his birthday cake!
It was a personal pan pizza cake.
Did not enjoy the attention at the party.
Was still a big fan of Sesame Street.
Started liking Hot Wheels.
Could talk extremely well.
Carried on conversations.
Followed detailed directions.
Got his cast taken off!
Did not need a temporary cast.
Walked on his own just hours after removal.
Celebrated Daniel's 3rd birthday with:
     a milkshake, Taco Bell, visiting Daddy
     at work, Cracker Barrel, and movies!
Always asked for hamburger and fries.
Told us exactly what he wanted
     his baby brother's name to be.
Anticipated no longer being the baby.

The biggest smile from the sweetest face

Daniel started an obsession for pirates,
so Samuel went along.

Mouths opened wide for a bite of cake!

Grinning upon opening his Easter eggs

Looking at the bugs on their
bedroom window...
Samuel is standing up!

Did not want to smile

Showing Mommy his bunny rabbit

Is that a smile?
Walking around on his cast
at his birthday Pizza Party

Where is Samuel?
Looking for his presents.

Look who he found:
It's Ernie and Cookie!
His two favorite characters!

Watching Alvin and the Chipmunks with Grandpa

After a long night of partying,
Samuel slept peacefully.
