Samantha 3.5

Samantha Brynn turned 3.5 on the 17th. 
Since the beginning of this month I had been planning a very big celebration.  She was going to bring treats to school (cause her real b-day is August 17th), and we were going to prepare a special Half-Birthday dinner together and everything...
Then she got sick.  For the whole week!
YUCK!
Although, it has given me LOTS of snuggle time, I just can't wait until  she is feeling like herself again.

In the past 6 months, we have seen so many wonderful changes in Sam. 
She has taken on the Big Sister role proudly.  It amazes me everyday how much she loves her brother!
On the school front, she LOVES it!
(even if she completely under-performs for her teachers)
We have seen HUGE gains at home with her language.  Even extended family members have noticed her open up to them!

Samantha is one special girl.
Always bringing sunshine to every room.
She's the most compassionate child I've ever known.

Sam, You are a Gift from God!
Even though you are small...
DREAM BIG! 

 When you cry be sure to dry your eyes
'Cause better days are sure to come

And when you smile be sure to smile wide
Don't let them know that they have won

And when you walk, walk with pride
Don't show the hurt inside
Because the pain will soon be gone


 Sam 0.5 

 And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue


'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

 Sam 1.5

When you laugh be sure to laugh out loud

'Cause it will carry all your cares away
And when you see, see the beauty all around and in yourself
And it'll help you feel okay
And when you pray, pray for strength
To help you carry on
When the troubles come your way

Sam 2.5

And when you dream, dream big
As big as the ocean blue


'Cause when you dream it might come true
When you dream, dream big

Sam 3.5
