I want to keep updating on our time in China so I don't forget, but as we approach one year at home, I want to record some of favorite things about Sammy right now. First, this kid has the best smile. Seriously, for a child labeled deformed because of his mouth, he has great dimples and an infectious laugh. When we first came home, Sam didn't have any fat. I even asked the pediatrician about the large boney protrusions on his forehead. Now there is a nice thick layer of fat on his forehead and you can't even see the knots. He lets me rock him to sleep every night now. I rock him long after he is asleep and just feel the weight of his body and head on my chest. I smell his hair and rub his cheeks. His hair is fabulous. When he first got home, John Hinton said that Sam's hair hurt him. Now, it is luxurious. I could not have asked for more out of John Hinton in this last year. He is such a great big brother. They fight and love. They are brothers. John Hinton cries when Sammy gets in trouble for pinching or scratching.
No lie, they wear me out, but I have no regrets.
