Happy Father's Day

         Smooches for  Great Zadie!

Happy 1st Father's Day Dad!!
Nanya & PopPops 60th Anniversary

We have had a lot to celebrate so far this summer.  Last weekend we were in San Antonio to celebrate Nanya and Pop-Pop's 60th wedding anniversary.  Yes, I said 60th!!!  It is really inspiring watching my grandparents grow closer together even after all these years!  They are quite a team.  They held a beautiful brunch on Sunday for our entire family and some close friends.  I know how hard Nanya and Pop-Pop worked to pull this even together and it turned out wonderfully!  Sami really enjoyed getting to see her cousins, Lexie and Chase.  They were so sweet to her.  Sami laughed and laughed at Chase and Lexie was so adorable calling her "my Sami".  I am so excited Sami has cousins close to her age to grow up with.  So much fun!  Mikey, my brother in the Marines, was able to come as well.  It was great to see him but it was way too short a visit.  

Today we got to celebrate Adam's first Father's Day.  We went to brunch and enjoyed some great time with family.  Zadie was so adorable with Sami today.  We got some cute shots of them together.  I love watching everyone interact with Sami.  She is so loved!  I love my husband so much and I love how sweet he is with his little girl.  Happy Father's day Adam and to all those dad's we know and love!

Sami's 10 months old!!!

Sami turned ten months old yesterday.  10 months!  That is just too close to 1 year.  Sami is really enjoying her ability to crawl these days.  She loves being able to discover the house all by herself.  I really think she loves her independence.  We can see the light bulbs going off in Sami's mind during the last month, but I really see a difference in her understanding in the last few days.  She listens to people so intently and I know she understands much of what I say.  She is waving hi and bye, trying to clap, pulling up on everything, doing "so big", and lots of other cute tricks!  She's full of smiles and laughs.  She is a ton of fun these days!  I love when she reaches for me and gives me a hug and kiss and I can't wait for the day when she says "mama, I love you"!!!
