I clearly remember my blubbering about him turning 10 months old! How is it that he's gone and grown into a big three year old already?
But alas, he is. A big, big three year old.
And he truly is such a big boy now. I am proud and amazed at how he's grown in the last year, both in size and in all other way. He is such a smart little guy and is so expressive with his thoughts, although not always through his words but always with his eyes and actions.
He's such a sweet a cuddly fellow too. He loves to snuggle up with us and gives the best and biggest hugs to those he loves Yet he's a rough and tumble guy and he loves to tackle you to give you some of that love! He's also busy physically and loves to explore and will climb on anything he can swing his leg over or pull himself up on. He doesn't stop from dawn to dusk, he's the energizer bunny for sure!
And that determination I have spoken of in the past...well that has grown with him as well! He is still the most strong willed person I have ever met. Pair that with his intelligence and he is one tough little fellow! He absolutely knows what it is he wants and will make sure any around him know as well!
His favorite things right now are anything that has to do with construction. I now know the names of every construction vehicle on any site or roadside thanks to Sammy-Wei! He loves to see and hear the equipment working! He also is really interested in airplanes. He has always enjoyed watching them fly overhead and to fly on them, but now he tells me that when he's a "big guy" he'll be flying one too. A blue one to be specific!
So as sad as I am that my baby boy is actually not a baby anymore, I am thrilled with all he's learning and doing and growing into. Sammy is a joy and a blessing and just so uniquely Sammy-Wei! My three year old boy....
And here's some random pics of my handsome and darling little dumpling on his 3rd Birthday!
Happy Happy Happy Third Birthday my sweet darling boy!!!!!
Mama loves you always and forever.
