Time has flown by so quickly.... This needs to stop!! I've told Samuel he's not allowed to get any older or grow any taller. He's not obeying. The name Samuel means "Asked for by God" and for Bryan and I this was definitely the case. The Lord gave me the name Samuel before I had ever met Bryan and I wasn't even sure I would get married again or have more children but if I did, Samuel was the name for a boy. I had no trouble conceiving the girls but for Bryan and I, it took over 2 years so I felt like Hannah from the Bible. It was hard alot of the time because I felt like maybe God was punishing me for my past mistakes and that I wasn't a good enough mom to have more kids.
Samuel has been an awesome blessing for the last 10 years. He's a great mixture of Bryan and I too. He's got Bryan's smart brain and he's got my outgoing personality. He can talk to anyone, any time, any where, about anything and doesn't need any information to get started. (Bryan says that about me too) Adults love to talk to him and even when he was 3 or 4 he would carry on conversations with adults forEVER! He loves science and making up skits and puppet plays and doing projects that I like to akin to MacGyver. He's not afraid to make a fool of himself and I love that he's seemingly secure in who he is! He has several nicknames: Samo, Moo Moo, and Micah calls him Yo Yo. He doesn't like that one. YOUR AWESOME MOO-YO!!! WE LOVE YOU!!
