Three Years!

My middle baby boy is turning three years old tomorrow! As all birthdays are, it's a little bittersweet because time is passing before my very eyes. It seems just yesterday we found out we were pregnant with Sam and now he's a big brother and growing so fast! This post shows some of his most memorable moments!

This picture was taken December 29, 2006. The morning Sam was born!
(cute crib bedding huh?)

The time had come. We were headed to the hospital just waiting for the big moment!
If you know Sam at all, then you would find it appropriate that it looks like I swallowed a basketball.

I am here haha!! Watch Out!

It's bath time. Look at that chubster!

Having fun with pawpaw!

This picture of Sam looks identical to Charlie, seriously If Huett didn't look so young I wouldn't be able to tell which was which!

Ava was holding Sam's hand during a long car ride. Sam's only big girl cousin!

Look at those double chins. (they get that from their mommy, unfortunately)

Baby dedication. Every boy in our family (Huett, Sam, Archer, and soon Charlie) has worn this christening gown. So sweet!

Mommy and baby! I love me some Sambo!

Here we were starting to see some early glimpses of the ham that Sam has become today

Choo choo at the zoo!

Mommy and daddy are so much fun! I think they are laughing at my big belly...

Sam's body was finally starting to catch up with his big head...

Happy Halloween! 2007

This kid'll eat anything...maybe we should've named him Mikey!

Getting bigger and more handsome!

Let the hair growing commence! Here is where his hair really started growing longer and thickening up!

Brrrr!! The water at Splash! is really cold!

and tasty!

I don't at all remember his hair ever being this light but the proof is in the picture!
Big brown eyes!

Worn out after a day of hard play!

here he is again, trying to get some laughs. It worked!

what a beautiful boy!

honestly, he'll eat anything (or drink for that matter).

After his big haircut, he looks so handsome!
Things I know for sure about Sam
1. He has 2 parents who love him dearly although he's a daddy's boy
2. He is truly a unique and precious gift from God
3. He keeps us laughing on a daily basis
4. He is a loving and sweet brother (both big and little)
5. I have a feeling he may have a few class clown awards in his future (might I remind everyone I was voted Wittiest {is that a word?} in my senior class at SCS).
6. I also know he'll break a few (or many) hearts!.
but right now, I am the only woman in his life and I will enjoy it while it lasts.
So Happy Birthday middle son!! I hope you enjoy us as much as we enjoy you!
And good luck giving up your pass-wass! (pacifier) I will be there with you every step of the way.
And Mikey, don't be surprised if I cry more than Sam does the first night we send him to bed without it.
I love you more than life!


  1. Tiffany, now this blog makes me sad and happy at the same time! Sad Sam is getting to be a big boy and happy that we have him in our lives! But I think the picture that Tim is holding Sam, he looks just like Charlie! And I have you know that he has more than one woman in his life-you should never forget GranGran and MawMaw!!!

  2. this made me cry

  3. I'm glad we've got the pictures, because with so many kids...i can't keep up with how fast they are growing! i don't think the time is going to slow down, so what are we going to do about it? tell mikey to start looking around for doc and his delorian! Happy Birthday Sam, I'll be "bad guys" anyday with you!
    love, aunt trisha

  4. Sweet Sambo.. my precious middle grandson..he is so special and I love him with all my heart! And yes I am sure he will be a heartbreaker,as well as his brothers, so Mom you had better get ready for all the crying girls, phone ringing,cat fights, Mom's calling,etc..regarding your son's that have broken their little girl's heart!!

  5. I have look at this site several times this week. just looking back at Sam the ham... He is such adorable little boy and I miss him so much when he is not around...I love you Sam
