Fun at Twin Pines Park

"FHE" at the Park!

6 months with Sam

Today Sam is 6 months. I can't believe it. It seems like I just had him. His personality is really starting to come out. We had so much fun with him in san diego since he was the only child for a few days (jake stayed with ma ma and papa).

Some unique things about sam:
**Sam is so happy.
**He loves to kick and splash in the tub...and when he kicks he keeps his arms straight down so it looks like he's river dancing...its so cute.
**He also moves his head from side to side like he's singing a stevie wonder song.
**when he's tired he will turn his head to the side and just fall asleep. If I'm putting him to sleep I just have to cover his face with the blanket and it takes seconds for his eyes to roll back and close.
**he can win any staring contest

**His long perfectly curled eyelashes

**that he's wearing 12 month old clothes!!
i love how he falls asleep on my shoulder with his mouth open.
**i love how he smiles at me when I come and get him after he wakes up.
**he is just such a good baby. He really only cries when he's tired, hungry, or has a dirty diaper. What a sweet baby he is.

Let's Go GIANTS!

Here is Jake and Aya (one of Jake's favorite people from church) at the game...sharing a blanket and some snacks.

Jake borrowing Aya's Giants hat. It was a Mini-Mouse Giants hat, but Jake still looked tough in it.

Jeanna and Sam enjoying the game.

Jason and Jake, with the Bay Bridge in the background.

Go A's!!! (Oops, I mean Giants.) The Giants were hosting an LDS Family Night at the park this night, and a bunch of people from our ward went. It was fun, but it was an evening that means we only stayed until the 2nd inning until our family (Jake) was ready to go home. But the train ride up and back was really fun too.

Jake & Sam

Sam just turned 5 months. He weighed 17 lbs at his 4 month appt (90th percentile). He has 5 deep rolls between his bum and his knees :) He is rolling over now, so if I leave him on a blanket for a few minutes, he will be in a totally different place when I come back. Becoming mobile is on the horizon. He is also more interested in playing with and sucking on rings and toys. Today he was babbling "blah blah blah" literally. He is still an awesome sleeper, so squeally and so happy.

Jake just turned 21 months and he is as fun as ever. He is such a good talker. He loves to say his ABCs whenever we go anywhere. He loves to read letters and numbers on signs, licence plates, etc. Some of my favorite things he says are "woim" for warm, "bettie" for better, and how he says "yeah" for almost everything you say in such a matter of fact way. "Jake do you want some fruit snacks?" "yeah"

He loves Baby Einstein movies and is so smart. He repeats everything we say or do even my frustrated sighs and comments like "oh my goodness". And he loves to give "squeezes" (hugs), to mommy, daddy, and sam, especially when he's stalling at bedtime. And it makes you feel so good when he says I love you. "I you much" He's such a sweet little boy!
