Samson, 15 months (almost)

Sam is so hilarious these days. He is such a little boy lately instead of a baby, and his vocabulary grows every day. For my own documentation (Because I still look back at my Jackson posts to compare), I wanted to record some of the new things he says and does.

Words he can say:
No-no-no (with scolding finger)
Dooooon-toukk (Don't touch)
Jjsh (juice)
Hi-eee (Hi)
Bah-Bah (Bye-bye)
Ni-Ni (Night-night)
dawh (dog) (The woof-woof sound shortly follows)
duh (duck - not so good at the execution of this animal sound, but he does try)
DAH-duh (Jackson)
YAAAY! (with clapping)
Peeeee (Please)
Mooh (More, which he can also sign)
Tanka (comes out throaty at the end -Thank you)

He can also fold his arms for prayer on demand, give a scolding finger with the no-no, show you where his hair and nose are (and other parts of face on a good day), and he is starting to sing what sounds like the Alphabet song. He can tell you the sounds that a car, a dog, a cat (MEEEE-OOOOW, super dramatic), and a cow make. He gives hugs and kisses with sound effects, too.

But my favorite thing is how much he LOOVES his brother Jackson. If Sam is awake and running around, you can always find him following close behind Jackson. If Jackson plays with blocks, Sam is, too. If Jackson watches a movie, Sam does, too. If Jackson is playing Nintendo (or trying to), Sam is sitting there holding the spare controller, too.

Ahhhhhh! That is awesome. :) How fun that they love to be together.

I love your family picture, too. It turned out really well.

Are you getting ready for school to start again? Miss you.
