Future Chinese acrobat

I think the picture speaks for itself.

Funny enough, he seems to have been working towards this his whole life:

Three years for Sammy!

(Cue music for "Sunrise, Sunset")

Is this the little boy I carried?
Is this the little boy at play?

I don't remember getting older, when did he?

When did he get to be a beauty?
When did he grow to be so tall?

Wasn't it yesterday when he was small?

Sunrise, sunset.  Sunrise, sunset.
Swiftly flow the days.

But seriously.  Our little Sammy is growing up!  He's silly, bouncy, grumpy, happy, belligerent, flexible, diaper-change-averse, loves playing bumpies with his cars, cuddly, affectionate, strong-willed (or is that stubborn?), independent, funny, strong, and playful.  We love our Sammy and wouldn't have him any other way!  Happy birthday, Samuel!

Some videos

Elinor babbling at the camera.  She's usually much, much louder.

Sammy being... well, Sammy.

Flowers for Mother's Day

I made these last week. They weren't for anyone in particular, so I ate most of them myself.  :)

Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers in my life!

Happy Star Wars Day!

And May the Fourth be with you!

A few things to note:
* Turn the volume up and enjoy this lightsaber battle with real sound effects from Darth Sammy!
* The right motivational sound clip is all you need to turn a battle in your favor.
* I sort of can't get enough of that Charlie-Brown-esque dejected stance from Darth Sammy as soon as he's beat.  Awesome.
