Sam's Song

Sam loves the song "Twinkle Twinkle Little Star" and he sings it all the time. It is one of the cutest things I have ever heard. My heart turns to butter every time I hear his little voice singing those words all mixed up and spoken 1/2 way right. Every time I pull out the camera though, he stops singing. I FINALLY got it on video, but I assure you, he can sing it way better than he does in the footage I got. He normally sings the song all the way through, and you can understand it. He kind of gives up half way through this time and starts singing his own tune, then comes back to the song. This will give you an idea though. I am still following him around with the camera hoping against hope that I can get him singing it loud and clear. Enjoy.

While trying to catch the song on video, I caught something else that is just as precious. When Sam gets shy from the attention being on him, he has his own way of diverting the attention. He will get a shy little smile on his face and then his hand will shoot out and he will softly pinch your face or arm or stomach or whatever and pretend to eat you. It is HILARIOUS!!! He truly will pretend to eat you bit by bit when he is shy, in order to divert attention. In my opinion, all it does is draw even more attention and lots of laughter. He cracks me up.
Here is footage of Sam "eating" Ben because he is shy of the camera being on him.

And yes, that ugly, big huge king mattress on the floor has served as our bed for the past 5yrs of our marriage. We got it at the D.I. for $20. It has served us well, but it is way past it's time to go. TODAY we are headed to the furniture store to order our BRAND NEW GORGEOUS BEDROOM SET!!! We found it this weekend, and we really like it! I am sooooooo excited, I can hardly wait. We both love it and are so excited to have a beautiful, sleek, elegant (but not too elegant)masculine (but not too masculine) bedroom, that actually looks like a bedroom! Yippee Skippee!!!
Next will come the comforter, sheets and all sorts of fun fancy decorative pillows. I just need to make the decision on the colors I have been debating on. It will be so fun! I LOVE HOME DECOR!
