Sammy's first Easter included a very wet and soggy Easter morning (good thing we hunted eggs the day before!), multiple overflowing Easter baskets, a handsome new outfit and lots of sweet family time.
...and it wouldn't be complete without a dancing monkey!

For the last week or two, Sammers has been staring us down while we eat - reaching for our utensils, drinks, whatever he thinks he can get his little paws on - so we decided it was time for him to get a taste of some solid food. First up, avocado! Yummers!
His first bite,
thinking it over,
trying again..but not so sure.
Daddy tries to convince him it's yummy.
And the final verdict.
We'll try again tomorrow.

My baby brother turned 29 this weekend. He's one year away from 30. I think that makes me officially olde. I'm not such a terrible sister that I forgot to mention his birthday; we were busy hosting his birthday dinner, grilling up animal and vegetable carcasses and I haven't had a chance to embarrass him yet.
Adam is one of the greatest people you could ever be around and the best example of a tender, compassionate servant's heart I know. I don't tell him often enough how much I like him, probably because he is constantly making me laugh.
I love that Sam and Adam share a middle name and I hope that they'll share other qualities too. If Sammers turns out to be half the man that A is, I'll feel like we've done our best job.
I love you Buddy and couldn't have made it through this last year without you. Thank you for who you are.
