Sam has entered the world of imagination. I love watching him pretend these sticks are "big jets" "flying really fast". I get endless entertainment watching him drift off into his own world and catching the little phrases in his land of make believe. He gets much of his inspiration from the books we read together and movies he watches. It is so funny to see him close his eyes and say "speed, speed speed" (from Cars). He loves to build things with our couch cushions. Latest creations include a garage, rocketship, and tall tall tower (which he climbs with sticky shoes to rescue princess Daisy).

This smaller stick is a "rocket ship" and it is "flying really high." He brought this "rocket ship" home from the park with him and wanted to sleep with it that night. He resumed his rocket ship play when he found his stick the next morning.

Sam isn't always off in the land of make believe. He loves his new frog boots and is on the look out for puddles whenever he has them on. I love his exuberance and joy!

He is SO cute!!!!
I can't believe how big he is now. What a shock, he was still a baby when you left and now he is a Big boy!

He is so cute. My boy is doing the same type things, it really is a blast just to watch. You're nicer than I am on the stick thing. I've never "allowed" any of my kids to take their "toys" home from the park and what not. That never did seem to keep them out of my washing machine though. Clank clank clank! :)

He is so cute! It's so fun to watch them grow up and learn new things!

What a cute boy! I love his imagination. It's such a great reminder to us to stay young :) If he does still sleep with the stick, I'd love to see a picture! Elijah was pretending today that one of his sisters' Barbies was an airplane :)
