{My sweet little pork chop.}

For being such a fussy little baby, Sam has really turned out to be such a good boy.  He is an absolute dream in the sleep department.  He's all about his little blankie.  As soon as he feels it in his hand, he sticks his thumb in his mouth, rubs his blankie over his face and it's lights out.  Without a peep, he sleeps at least 12 hours each night and takes 2 nice long naps every day.  And when I open his door to get him once he's woken up, his face just lights up with the biggest smile as soon as he sees me.  Makes my day, every single time.  He's a piggie in the eating department.  He can be picky about certain veggies, but for the most part, he eats like a champ.  And as long as you have an endless supply of cheerios, he'll sit contentedly at the table until we are all finished eating too.  And whenever Poppy is around him, there is sure to be a huge smile on his face.  He just loves to stare at her and watch every move she makes.  And she loves to play with him and help us take care of him, too.

{These two crack me up.}

As promised, here are pics of the absolutely beautiful bookshelf my dad made for Poppy's room.  She lives on this thing.  All day long, she asks me if I want to go read a book to her on her "library bench".
Isn't this what every little girl always wants in their bedroom?  I know I always did.  

Poppy and I have been trying to make it feel a little more like "spring" around here, so we decided to make these bird's nest cookies.  Didn't they turn out cute?  And they were super fun (and easy) to make with Poppy.

And with that, I'm signing off.  The warm sunshine of Florida is waiting for us.  I'll see you next week!

Wow, Sam sounds like the *exact* opposite of Spencer. I'm a tad jealous! ;-)

Have fun in the sun!
