June 10, 2008

Hi. Today was a pretty cool day. I saw a friend for lunch and Sam and I ran a few errands. Oh yeah, and we saw a picture of our new baby for the very first time. We even heard the heartbeat. Yeah, it was pretty cool. This casual composure is totally fake because I'M SO FREAKING EXCITED!!!!

The newest member of the Sinanian family, Tiny Baby as Sam calls him/her, will arrive around June 10, 2008. We have just seven short months to go. There is so much to do and prepare for in that time. The main thing being that I need to wrap my brain around the fact that YES, I am indeed pregnant, and YES we're having another baby. Holy Shit, people. While I sit here in utter disbelief, feast your eyes on Tiny's first headshot. There are even little arms already! How beautiful!

All grown up

Sam woke up from his nap today and spralled out on the carpet to take in a few minutes of "Go, Diego, Go!" while he relaxed. He was lying on the floor, arm perched under his head for a pillow, with his legs casually crossed and just chilled. As I walked past, I flashed to 12 years from now when he is a teenage boy, doing that exact same thing, watching car remodeling shows or MTV.

A bit later, I was straightening up the office when he came in holding a cheese stick.

Sam asked, "Mama, Sam have cheese please?"

"Did you get that out of the fridge by yourself?"

Sam replied, "Yes."

"Did you close the door?"

"Yes!" he said, with a tinge of "no duh, Mom!" to his voice.

I gladly opened the cheese stick wrapper for him and sighed because, like it or not, he is still growing up.

Happy Birthday, Sam

My Sweet Sam,
Time has gone so quickly since your last birthday. Look at how much you've grown!

Mommy and Sam (age 1)

Sam (age 2)

Two years ago, you blessed me with your birth and you continue to be my miracle. You humble me with your tenderness and amaze me with your keen observations. You don't miss a thing! This past year your personality and vocabulary have exploded! You delight Daddy and me every day.

I feel so blessed that God gave me such a unique and amazing child. I love to watch you grow and learn. You've even taught me many things in your two short years. You've taught me what it is to love with every fiber of my being. I've learned to have patience when I thought I was at the end of my rope. I now know that the stubborn children are more work, but that they love as hard as they fuss. I have learned that being your Mommy makes me whole.

Happy birthday, my sweet son. May this year bring you fascinating discoveries, new adventures and more love than you can imagine. You are my little buddy, my sweet son and my very heart.
