Here are some highlights of Samantha's short toddler career...
*Insists on using her own utensils. Not baby spoons, either. Both the utensils and the food on her plate have to be identical to the rest of the family.
*Has emptied cartons of eggs on two occassions.
*Took a marker to all the walls and the fridge the other day.
*Takes great pleasure in unrolling toilet paper and putting it all in the toilet.
*Can climb up the bunk beds.
*Loves cars and trains..."dars" and "nays". Sam was screaming while I was putting her in the car the other day, so I said, "No screaming in this house!" Benjamin looked at me and said, "This isn't a house, this is the car." Sam gives me her most precocious glare and finger point and says, "DAR!!"
*Yesterday, we went to a friend's home to pick cherries. I turned my back on Sam for approximately 6.3 seconds, turned back around, and found her on the top of a 6 foot ladder (not at the top, ON the top) with her hands in the air yelling, "So Big!"
What a character she is!
