Sam I Am

As many of you may know by now, I decided to stay home from teaching this year. While I am off this year, I decided to keep a friend of mine's baby boy named, Samuel. He is exactly one year younger than K and has the sweetest disposition. K loves having him around! She greets him every morning with "hi baby" and tries to get him out of his car seat~it's too cute. She enjoys entertaining him, annoying him, and even kissing him (which can be entertaining and annoying ;) LOL!) K has really "helped" him adjust to other children by squealing loudly right in his ear, taking toys away, showing him how toys work, sharing toys and other things, peeking in his crib right as he gets asleep, and many other helpful things. After a couple weeks, he learned to completely tune her out and not be as startled when she goes into LOUD mode (then again, I think we all have learned that to an extent). Having two around is not as hard as I thought it was going to be and definitely a wonderful learning experience for when we have our 2nd child (no...we are not quite ready for baby #2-we are just getting to the really fun stuff with K!)
