One Spoiled Girl

Every morning when I get my "Little/Big" man out of bed and we pass my bedroom he says "Baby Sam Sweep"? As we then continue on our way downstairs where Samantha is usually already awake and fed he immediately says "Baby Sam WAAAAAKE". "I see Baby Sam"? He then rushes over to her where I cringe that he is going to step right on top of her, he gently gets down on his hands and knees and lays right next to her. I must say it is the sweetest thing I have ever seen.
For those of you who know Gavin he doesn't really know how to play soft or talk quietly. He is often clumsy and destructive. But when it comes to his little sister he has from day one been so tender and sweet. He loves to sing her "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and tell her all the features of her face (as he is lovingly poking her in the eye). There is something about Boys and the way they love and protect their "Girls"!!!!!
As I said a moment earlier the Boys love their girls and Sam loves her daddy. When he comes home from work and she hears his voice she tries to talk to him. He can pick her up and in seconds have her cooing and smiling. That is rare and it takes me a LONG TIME to get that same reaction. Little Sam and Garrett have a Special bond and it is such a great blessing to have her in our life.

Samantha Jane

Thank you Cortney for letting Samantha be your guinea pig for practicing with your new camera. I truly benefited from this little photo session and it was an adventure all along the way.
As we started getting things together and Sam positioned we didn't realize how hard it is to mold a child "NATURAL LOOKING" into all kind of positions without them screaming and stiffening up. The first 30-45 min. was chaotic and we questioned if this was going to work out at all.
Needles to say when we got Sam to sleep she was much more delightful to work with (hehehe)! We were just a little more limited on the positions we could use.
Props to all those out there who make taking pics. look easy and flawless its hard work and Cortney you are incredible, so Thank You again!!!!!



Sisters Forever!!!
