I normally shy away from posting videos of my kids because I understand that 10 minutes of an infant trying to roll over may only be interesting to the person who carried that infant in her womb for 9 months. But some of you have been asking, and this here video is classic Samson. It is jam packed with all the hits: baby chick, an egg hatching, me being referred to as “Ma”, and a warning from my son to me to stop being so careless.
All my boy wanted for his 3rd birthday was a train cake. He was ecstatic to also receive a watch, a globe, and piles and piles of books. Oh, and this camera is a huge hit. All he wants to do today is go to the zoo, see some amnimals, and take pictures of them.
Happy birthday, my (still little) fellow.
…and then my heart exploded.
P.S. Let’s hear it for Hubby who shot these from the hip.
July 11, 2010 and July 11, 2011. Same face.
And, I can’t NOT post this one. Also from July 11, 2010.
On the eve of Samson’s birthday, I picked up prints from a roll of film that I had no idea was almost exactly 1 year old. It was rather fitting to get a tiny baby surprise (4 days old!) right around the time we’d be celebrating his 1st birthday, which, by the way, we did up—all up!–on the weekend, so stay tuned for photos from that raucous party.
– banging on windows
– yelling at airplanes
– pointing out interesting things in airports (lights, artwork, sculptures)
– yelling at little trucks that carry luggage
– sleeping on his tummy with his bum in the air (which was hard to achieve on the plane, so there was a lot of thrashing, and not a lot of time for Mummy to sleep)
– airplane windows
For you: a little video of some of the yelling.
