Talking with his baby brother
about no telling what

Rocking baby Elias to sleep

Drinking his BIG sweet tea

Wearing his hat during lunch

Always was scared of noises...
Although I'm not sure what noise
he was frightened over here.
He kept his hands over his ears...

The FIRST and ONLY time
Samuel got into the pool
was when it was first inflated.
Once the water was added,
he refused.

He dressed himself up in his sunglasses,
pajamas, and Mimi's shoes,
then actually posed for me.

Our little musician

Give this kid a milkshake
and you'll win him over...
