Comments: Sam's Romance Continued

As a parent just starting out, it is amazing and magical to watch your child grow and their awareness (or lack thereof) stands out so starkly to our own sometimes jaded outlook.

My daugher, Samantha (Sammi), at 18 months old somehow already rules her daycare. All the other kids lavish attention on her and become estatic when she reciprocates. She also plays her hand when she wants specific toys and/or to participate in different activities.

How fast their awareness grows. You wonder how she can be so seemingly cognizant in some areas and at the same time oblivious to so many other things. I can only hope that I can experience her life in so sweet a way as you describe.

Keep up the good work. Your writings express so well what others of us have a hard time speaking, let alone forming into complete sentances. If I were to attempt what you have accomplish here daily, it would read something like this:

"Today she (pause) and then he (pause) there was a hug (pause) ahhh, you should have seen it (pause) and he was so shy (pause) but loving (pause) and she cares enough to (pause) well you had to be there. (tear wells up, I turn my manly back to the crowd and pretend to have a bug in my eye)
