Samantha's Birthday

Here are a couple of slideshows of Sammi's 2nd birthday. We had such a fun time this year. We had a birthday party the Sunday before with her cousins Jace and Max. On Sammi's birthday, we took her to the park for lunch and out to dinner at Chuck E. Cheese with the Lindemans. The day after her birthday, Kyle and I took her to the Treehouse Museum in Ogden where she had a blast. Thank you friends and family for all the wonderful gifts and for making Sammi's birthday such a fun event. We love you!

Weird Girl

Sammi is so weird sometimes. For a couple of months she always opened the drawer in our computer desk, would load it up with stuff and then get in and play. One of her favorite things to do in her drawer is to draw. I guess it was just her size.


Our sweet Samantha turns 2 years old today! Happy Birthday Sam! I can't believe it. Two years really went by fast. Anyway, I thought it would be fun to post some of the funny things she says we call "Sammerisms". Here you go:

Jace, no, no!
Her cousin Jace is a week older than Sammi and whenever they play together, she loves to boss him around. She will follow him around and when he does something he shouldn't, she says in a very stern voice, "Jace, no, no!" This just makes us laugh because when Kyle was young his first sentance was, "No Keri, no!" Keri is Jace's mom and Kyle's sister. Like father, like daughter...

Oh Crap!
A couple of weeks ago, Sammi dropped something and said, "Oh crap!" Kyle and I just looked at each other and busted up laughing. I guess we have been using the "C" word a little too much lately. Since then we have been really careful about what we say around Sammi. The other day we were eating dinner with Kyle's parents and his dad was watching a BYU basketball game. The players made a bad play and he yells, "Oh CRAP!". Then Sammi goes, "Oh crap. . . crap, crap, crap." She also says "Oh shoot," and even one time said "flip, flip, flip!"

I gotcha Daddy!
Sometimes when Kyle picks up Sammi and carries her, she puts her arms around him and says, "I gotcha Daddy!"

Thank you much!
Whenever Sammi hands me something or if I give her something she needs, she says, "Thank you much!"

Awww Hugs
Sammi loves to give you hugs. She will often run up to you and throw her arms around you and say, "Awww hugs."

I gee (give) you pat-pats
When Sammi is crying and I hold her and pat her back, she sometimes pats my back and say, "I gee you pat-pats."

I'm comin' slide.
The other day I took Sammi to the park. She was climbing the stairs to get to the slide and she said, "I'm comin' slide!"

Ready to pray.

When we sit down to dinner or any meal, Sammi will automatically fold her arms and say "Ready to pray." Then she stairs at us while we are praying (she hasn't quite got the bow your head and close your eyes thing down). After we are done, she says "Amen!" Sometimes she has to pray 2 or 3 times before she is satisfied and will eat her dinner. The other day in Church after we had the opening prayer, she yelled really loud, "AMEN!"

Stinky Diaper!
When Sammi poops in her diaper, she will come get you and say, "stinky diaper" or "stinky pants". Then when I am changing her, she says, "Ewww, yucky. Gross."

Daddy bye-bye?
In the mornings when Sam gets up, she usually notices if Kyle is gone. Then she looks at me and says in a sad voice, "Daddy bye-bye?". Then when Kyle gets home from work, she always runs to him and says, "Daddy! Daddy home!"

Mommy, where'r you?
The other day, Sammi had woken up from her nap and was just talking in her crib. Then I heard her say, "Mommy, where'r you? Mommy, where'r you?" I just laughed because she hasn't ever said that before. I think she has been hanging around her cousin Ammon too much.

Oh, I'm funny!
Sometimes Sammi will be playing and she will just start laughing for no reason. Then she says, "Oh, I'm funny!"

B' careful!
When Sammi falls down or trips, she says, "You okay? B' careful!"

Garbage jumped
Sammi hasn't figured out the word fall yet and so everything jumps. She likes to jump off of the couch, which is scary unless we put pillows down. We have to watch her because she jumps anyway and says, "I jumped." She says jumped in this weird voice that is deeper than the rest of the words. The other day she threw a metal garbage can down the stairs which was really loud and then yells down, "Garbage jumped!"

Tickle Piggies

Sammi loves her little piggy toes. Sometimes she will tickle her toes and say, "Tickle piggies! Tickle piggies!"

Teasing Danpa (Grandpa Worsley)
Sammi loves to tease her Danpa. Her favorite thing to do to tease him is run to his kitchen chair and throw off his chair pad. Then she runs off laughing. Sometimes she will grab it and try to hide it or throw it down the stairs. She stands there and waits until he notices her stealing it. Danpa always throws a big fuss which makes her laugh even more.

Chocolate Milk
When we ask her what she wants to eat, she usually says, "Chocolate Milk!" It's all Grandpa Lindeman's fault, he got her addicted.

Pretty Hair
Sammi likes to get my hair brush out to brush her hair. While she is doing it, she says, "Oh pretty. Pretty hair."

When she does something she knows she shouldn't, she says her name in the exact tone of voice I use when she is in trouble.

Mote (remote)
Sammi is obsessed with watching her shows which includes Backyardigans, Dora the Explorer, Go Deigo Go, Tinkerbell and Curious George. She will often go get the "mote" and hand it to you so she can watch something. The other day, she wanted to watch something and I told her no and took the remote away. She then went downstairs and got the other remote, brought it all the way upstairs and was trying to turn on the TV. Is my kid addicted or what?

Shhhh, shhh, secret!

For all you parents out there who have their kids watch Backyardigans, you know that this is one of the episodes called "Secret Mission". Sammi loves this episode and goes around whispering Shhh, Shhh, secret. . . shhh, shhh, secret mission!

Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Star
Sammi loves music and to sing. This is probably her favorite song and when she sings it, it sounds like this:

Twinkle, Twinkle, lil' star. Howie wonders what you are. Up above the (mumble mumble) high, Like a diamond...(mumble mumble) Twinkle, Twinkle, lil' star, howie wonders what you are.
