Samuel turned three recently and we celebrated him with gifts and a cake for breakfast before Papa left for work. Samuel is a really precious kid. He is so sweet and very observant. If he notices something that needs to be done he will quickly try to help.
"Sure Mom!" is his usual cheerful reply when I ask him something. Its pretty amazing to have such a pleasant toddler... all through his twos he remained the same. He is one of a kind!
Samuel loves to do whatever the big kids are doing (which sometimes causes frustration!) He participates during our school time as if he is doing their level of work. He works really hard when he's coloring a picture, so it was sweet when Trader Joe's called a couple days before his birthday to let us know that he had won the coloring contest that month for the 2-4 year olds.
