Look Who's Talking, Smiling, Walking, Having a Birthday

You know that with children or grandchildren, they are always doing something new as they are growing and learning...

Smiling...
Eli is smiling ALOT these days. He is already over 3 months old and his mommy and daddy report that he is such a happy baby. He is easy-going, sleeps through the night sometimes and is now sharing a bedroom with his big brother.

I can't wait to hold him again and be on the receiving end of those beautiful smiles!:)
Grammy loves you, yes I do...


Talking...
Sam is busy with so many things, and recently discovered his belly button! We all love hearing him talk and play, and give his little brother hugs and kisses. One of the new things that he says is not just "I love you' but "I love you so much". (Grammy's heart melting here...:) Jess said recently that they make each other laugh...precious. (sigh:)

No, Sam's feet aren't having a growth spurt! He loves wearing his mommy and daddy's shoes around the house. He puts them on and "goes" somewhere and then "comes back home" So cute:)


Jess made these sweet guitar jammies for Sam. (she is very creative:) Sam just loves music and guitars. He also know many songs by heart...isn't that a funny phrase when you think about it?...memorizing by heart. Daniel and Jess have sung to him since he was a baby, lullabies and also children's church songs. Amanda babysat for Sam and Eli last Saturday and she told me that Sam can sing "O Holy Night"and that she was trying to keep with him:)

Of course, learning electronics is a part of growing up now! And a must for emailing Grammy one of these days:)
I love you Sam!



And look who's saying some words now AND is having her FIRST BIRTHDAY on Friday!
I am lovin' her pigtails:)
Sophia!!

What a beautiful smile:)

Sophie is on her way to walking...



Sophie's birthday celebration is going to be this Saturday in Pittsburgh. We can't do a trip now, but believe me, we will be celebrating also from here!:) Her mommy and daddy are also dedicating Sophie to the Lord on Sunday at church...what a wonderful weekend.




And look who shares their birthdays this week! Yes, Sophia was born on Amanda's birthday last year- what a blessing they both are!!
Happy Birthday Girls-- We love you!!
