Sam is now quite the little talker. I thought it would never happen. I love to see his little personality emerge more every day.

K: What is your favorite color?
Sam: Red and blue. Because red and blue are for big boys.

K: Who is your best friend?
Sam: Daddy and you and Molly and Lucy (giggle)

K: What is Santa going to bring you?
Sam: HUNGRY HUNGRY HIPPOS. That's the surprise on Christmas time. And it's so noisy.

K: Why do you suck your thumb so much?
Sam: Cuz I can suck it in the daytime. In this room.

K: What is your favorite animal?
Sam: Well then, it's a horsey and a cow. We saw plenty cows when we were going...'Member the little pony at someones house? Kate and Trevor and Austin, remember their house? It was fun.

K: What are you going to be when you grow up?
Sam: Well, I really like to be a sootball (football) player. It's good to be a football player.

This was cut short by Molly waking up and Sam telling me, "Molly's waking up. Check on her please. Right now."
Then he got his Mickey Mouse flip flops and told me he was ready to go to the beach.
My life is pretty fun with this kid!

4 Months

Molly is now 4 months old! She is getting so big and just wants to play while I take pictures and not hold still. She rolled over about a week ago too.
Her stats:
Weight 13.5 lbs (53%)
Length 25.7 in (92%) WOW! Volleyball here she comes.
OFC 16.1 in (46%)
Likes: eating, sleeping at night, smiling, baths, her mobile, laughing when Sam laughs, chewing on whatever she can get in her mouth
Dislikes: any noise while she is trying to eat (talking, footsteps, noises made by Sam), being on her tummy, being alone

P.S. I made that flower clip. I'm crafty.

Jumping in freshly raked leaves must be instinctual. I was raking and Sam just came and jumped from pile to pile. Where did he learn that? We have had lots of fun playing outside.

Molly is getting big and loving her Bumbo seat. I love it too.

Lots of people tell me that Molly looks just like Sam. Sure, she's bald like he was. I didn't really see it until I saw this picture. She looks like a girl though, right?Sam and Devin were throwing up all day on Halloween so we didn't get to go trick or treating. Sam was so sad. So a week late we dressed the kids up and let Sam go. We went only to selected (prewarned) houses and they were all good sports. Sam didn't know the difference and he had a great time.Sam was a "B...I...U sootball player" Poor kid can't say "Y" or "F" yet. He was super cute!Molly was the cutest BYU cheerleader I've ever seen.
Devin was a giant tree for Halloween. Seriously. It went with his group thing at work. He did a great job on his costume and I only had about 1 hour of sewing the night before. Actually less than usual. He was successful in scaring many adults and kids. He also was voted "Favorite Costume" at Omniture and won the BIG $$$$. Not really surprised.

Devin with Sam and my dad. My dad is a little over 6 feet tall. My husband is pretty awesome!
