Oh Sam. How our whole family loves thee. You see, Sam is our babysitter and Miles LOVES her. Like, “Hey Mom, don’t let the door hit ya on the way out” kind of love when she comes over. When you scroll through her photos, I think you’ll agree. You would want a babysitter just as happy, bubbly and fun if you were 3.
I love her too because I’m so comfortable with her that I will let her see my house when it’s messy (like REALLY messy) or me when I’m still in my jammies getting dressed or running around in sweats and no make-up cleaning. It’s the BEST kid of comfort you can have to trust someone with your kiddo AND your messy side. She’s just so open, relaxed and loving. I can’t wait to show Miles these photos. I know he will say, “THAT’S SAM! I LOVE SAM!”
We had so much fun on her shoot. I love how happy and carefree you are here Sam. It’s so you!
Sam, I adore this photo of you. You are so beautiful!
One part about Sam that is fun to see pop up around our house is her artistic side. She makes jewelry, clothing, bags, and even does her own photo shoots for the things she creates. It’s fun to see the remnants of her artwork float around our house too in the things she creates with Miles from time to time.
There were so many fun dancing photos, I couldn’t possibly choose just one.
I think everybody needs a great “throwing back their head in laughter” photo of themselves.
Here’s your slideshow Sam, with music written by John. Best wishes as you finish your senior year and prepare for college. The selfish part of me hopes you stay in town so we can keep you, but of course, I only want what is truly best for you. (I mean, Sam, how will I ever find another sitter that I could possibly wear my ugly sweat pants in front of?) We are so excited to see where your artistic vision takes you in life!
PS Sam is the FASTEST texter I know. She has some crazy phone keyboard skills!
