That Sam-I-Am, That Sam-I-Am.. How We Love That Sam-I-Am.


Look who hit the double digits! Our sweet Sam turned 10 on February 4th.. with some rad new snowboard goggles, a new DS game.. and very large bag of Sour Patch Kids, to prove it!

I have been wanting to post a blog dedicated to our Sammy Lamb for some time.. so now is as perfect time as ever to celebrate the hilarious and unique being that is our Sammy boy.
This picture sums up alot.

The best part about Sam.. is that his mind is always somewhere you've probably never been.. and he's constantly imagining, day-dreaming, and creating out of the ordinary moments.. and um.. sticking pencils through apples-- cause, why not??

So to record a few tidbits about our Sam-a-lamb-a-ding-dong:
Almost since birth.. he has had a skill for getting way more food AROUND his plate, than in his actual, mouth.

He will spend all day in the tub just hanging out.. and ya know.. shoving stuff down the drain..

He is go-with-the-flow-er. A takin' his timer.
And never, ever, a hurrier.

He is a dresser-upper..

An observer..

And a dreamer..

And one of my personal favorite traits of our Lamb.. is that through his big-kid cool.. he is still an excitable, ever-enthusiastic, believing, kid.

Our boy is a skater, a snowboarder.. and lover of all holidays and celebrations. He is a giver of love and affection to his little sister and big dog.. and hugger, snuggler and affection giver to his Mom. He loves his family. He likes when everyone is home together.. just us.. and his deep laughter is silly and contagious.
He loves sushi, and snow, and getting under a blanket after he eats.
Since he was a baby.. I have often said I feel sorry for everyone who doesn't get to raise Sam.. how we love him. How lucky I am to be his Mom. Happy birthday wonderful boy.

Man, he sounds like every mom's dream....and girl's dream for that matter. Better watch out, he's gonna be married before you know since he's such a catch.

That was awesome Katy! My favorite pic is the apple through the pencil--who else but Sam would come up with that one when doing their homework?? We agree, he is a wonderful boy! (Make that a wonderful boy with some sweet new goggles! Which, by the way, will look great with your green coat when he's at school and we're up having a girls day at the mountain :) )

Make me cry! I miss all your sweet, adorable kids. Happy Birthday Sammy Lamb!

He sounds dreamy! But how do little boys suddenly become 10 years old? My "big" boy is about to turn 8...it all just slips away too fast. I so, so, so wish we lived close and our kids knew each other! Similiar minds and personalities...

Cute! Cute! Cute! Oops. I just remembered my boys HATE to be considered cute, but when you are there is nothing more to say.

Anna said...

Oh the memories that surfaced reading your blog about Sam! I remember some of those things about your boy...remember when he stuck his tooth through his tongue, and all the blood that followed? I felt terrible! Fortunately you were right there to comfort and take control, while I was passing out! Happy Birthday Sam! Hopefully we will get to see you again sometime before your 20th! Miss ya Katy!

Great pictures Katy, I love the one of him looking over the railing!! You can just see he is thinking!!

Abby said...

What a lovable boy! And he's so handsome too! I love the picture of the food everywhere around his plate...the OCD in me was glad it was your table though and not mine. Sweet post, sweet mama!
