1 year and 1, almost 2, months later

Loving her ability to walk!
funny girl!

It feels like Little Miss Sami has mastered so much since she turned 1 on August 3rd. She is walking like a pro, even occasionally trying to run (definitely falls 100 times a day!), babbles all day long, loves to pretend she is talking on the phone, squats to pick up toys, dances to music, says "mama" and "dada" (sort of), signs many things, LOVES books (yay!), is growing a healthy mullet (thankfully it curls up so it isn't so noticeable), can dribble a ball (as in soccer dribble), throws balls (and her lunch, not a fan of that one), eats everything (except hot cereal), helps clean the floor, gives kisses and hugs (my favorite) and blows kisses. She is definitely loving that she can communicate and is showing signs of really wanting to talk. She loves hide and seek and peek-a-boo games. She loves attention, and gets it most of the time (yikes!). In fact, the other night we had City Group at our house and she wanted everyone to stop talking and to pay attention to her. So, she just started sitting and falling back on her head over and over again thinking she was being funny. It was strange actually, but I knew she just wanted everyone to look at her. I have got my hands full I think!

I am really excited the weather is cooling off. Sami loves going outside, and she is finally at the age to really start enjoying the outdoors more actively. This fall should be a blast. In other news, we are heard me right. Baby #2 is on the way, due in May. Not sure what all that is going to look like, but for now we are just trying to push through the tiredness of the 1st trimester.

Sami is headed to Austin tomorrow morning with her Nan to visit the Austin family. I get an entire day and two nights to myself. What to do, what to do! Oh, I know, lets get a mani and pedi to start!!! I am sure I can find plenty to do! I will be excited to see Sami on Sunday, but I am going to make the most of my time with no responsibilities!

Adam is in the heat of his golf with Q-school right around the corner. We are praying for him to make it to the PGA Tour this year, but if not we know God has good things for us in the future. We are looking forward to having a little more clarity, either way. Thanks for all your support and prayers!
