I will never get over the fact that she is mine. She is full of sunshine and smiles and has such a happy personality.
She loves her iPad and is obsessed with videos on YouTube Kids. Maybe she’ll be a YouTube star one day! Ha, let’s hope not! She loves to play with her LOL dolls and dress up her Barbies. She is a girly girl and is always wanting to put on some makeup, do her nails, and walk around in her dress up high heels! She still wears a ponytail to school almost every day but looooves it when I let her wear her hair down or with a headband. She’s always asking me if she looks like “a teenager”. While she has strong opinions about her wardrobe, we can still come to an agreement…most days! Purple anything is still tops in her book! One of her most favorite things is to go for a drive and hang her head out the window – she can’t get enough of the wind blowing in her face and hair!
I wrote this for her birthday two years ago and it is still 100% accurate: “She knows the power of her snuggles and hugs and uses them to her advantage with Maxwell! He would hug her all day if he could and she never lets him! ha! Maxwell loves her the most. She and Spencer are buddies and, if it’s just the two of them, they shine! The play well together and are the best of buds. She loves Dad and lets her light shine on him occasionally but Samantha is definitely a Momma’s girl and wants me to do everything for her. It’s wonderful and exhausting.” Yep, still 100% true! She probably says “momma” 563 times a day and comes home from school with some kind of love note for me pretty much every day. I’m one lucky momma!
Samantha is really coordinated and athletic. You’ll find her doing cartwheels just about every day no matter where she is! She loves her tumble class and is really liking her new dance studio. She was a star in soccer this year and can be as tough as any little girl out there. I love her hustle!!
This happy little girl has rocked Kindergarten! She’s made so many new friends and has the cutest group of buddies. The masks and strange circumstances of this year haven’t slowed her down one bit. She’s thriving at school, learning to read, and making the most of every day.
My little girl with the big personality! She’s friendly and happy and just a true joy. She’s also strong-willed and full of opinions. I wouldn’t have it any other way!
