This boy, y'all. He melts me. Matt and I have had the best time watching him enjoy the fun things the season of Fall has to offer. Last weekend, we made a trip to Inman, SC to visit Johnson Farms for some pumpkin picking. Watching the joy Sam experiences when he visits somewhere new or learns a new word or trick, is the sweetest reminder of why I became a Mama. He loved everything. From the decorations and apples to purchase, to the pumpkins and gem mine, he was in awe. Not to our surprise though, his favorite thing actually ended up being the pumpkin patch. And as much as he loved picking up pumpkins, it was the dirt and rocks that he was able to sink his hands in that made his heart happy.

He's changing every day and I just want to bottle up every memory so that I never forget the sweetness that comes with each stage. The way he says please {"peeee"} and lights up with pride when you praise him for it melts my soul. When I walk into a room after being gone for longer than a minute, that same sweet prideful smile shows up on his face. He's still a Mama's boy through and though and it's everything I ever wished for. He loves babies and small children making it hard for me to put off having another one. He calls them "bee" instead of baby, the same way he does when he sees a picture of himself on my phone. It drives me crazy when he dumps out every bag of snacks I give him because prefers to eat them off the floor. Be careful if he ever offers you a bite because it's probably a soggy one that's already been in his mouth. Refuse to choke it down and you will absolutely break his heart.

I adore the way he scrunches up his nose when he smiles or he's being sneaky. The sound of his tiny footsteps hitting the hardwoods as he runs in circles reminds me to be grateful to Jesus for the miracle that he truly is. I say it repeatedly, but he truly is a dream come true. I live for this kid, y'all, and I wouldn't change that for anything.
