Sam's First Meme

Stephanie from Adventures in Babywearing very kindly tagged me with this meme recently. I’ve kind of been feeling like lately I’ve been writing way too much about me, me, me and not nearly enough about Sam, Sam, Sam though. When I saw that Jamie from All Things Avery had done this tag from her daughter’s perspective it was the perfect solution. Now I get to refocus on Sam, do the meme, and you guys don’t have to keep reading about me. So, Sam would like you to know the following things about his personality:

3 Things That Scare Me
Loud children.
The flying circus tent in Teletubbies – the one that houses the dancing bear.
When mommy makes strange noises to keep me awake in the car when we’re just a few minutes from home.

3 People That Make Me Laugh
Tyler & Maki (our cats)

3 Things I Love
Obstacle courses
Figuring out something new

3 Things I Hate
When I try to escape to the place behind the potty and get caught before I can pull the cap thing off of the base.
Being picked up and taken away from an area I am exploring.
When Mommy doesn’t share her food.

3 Things I Don’t Understand
Why I can’t grab the stream of water poured from a cup.
How to fall asleep by myself.
Why I’m not allowed to push through the screen door

3 Things On My Desk/Table
Car puzzle
Geo Trio
Nesting cups

3 Things I’m Doing Right Now
Plotting my next potty escape…or my next waking.

3 Things I Want to Do Before I Die
Mommy’s not even willing to discuss me in the same sentence with that word so I guess we have to skip it.

3 Things I Can Do
Hammer – watch my video. I’m REALLY good at it.
Make mommy laugh.
Stand for a few seconds all by myself.

3 Ways to Describe My Personality
Impatient, especially when it comes to people making my lunch too slowly.

3 Things I Can’t Do
More than I can list. Walking and talking are pretty high up there right now.

3 Things I Think You Should Listen To
I like songs with lots of drums.
Anyone who is saying “Bye bye.”
Mommy, but only if she is talking about nummies or trucks.

3 Things I Think You Should Never Listen To
Anyone saying the word “no.”
Babies that yell during playgroup.
Anyone saying there is “no biting.”

3 Absolute Favorite Foods
Toast with peanut butter
Grilled cheese…cheese of any kind
YoBaby yogurt - blueberry

3 Things I’d Like to Learn
How to catch the ball
How to catch the cats
How to read my books

3 Beverages I Drink Regularly
Milk from the nummies
Whole milk
Apple juice

3 Shows I Watched as a Kid
Sesame Street
Lots of tennis, but I don’t pay much attention to it.

3 People I Tag
I want to tag all of Mommy’s friends that she thinks have one child. That way, if the mommies want their kid to have a meme, they don’t have to choose between their children. Or the mommies could do the meme about themselves. Or they don’t have to do it at all, and that’s ok, I won’t be offended. So I tag:
Baby A

Gee, Sam has such a one-track mind with those nummies. What a boy.

Your boy is a great hammerer(is that a word?). Very cute. Congrats on winning friday flicks!

Oh, this is such a great way to do a meme! I was all smiles.

The video of Sam hammering is priceless! I love the neutral look on his face as if he’s just thinking “get it done, get it done, get it done!”

I bet the cat was wondering why you were filming the baby and not him/her! It's funny how he/she tries to get into the shot.

That video was so cute! That was a great way to do the meme, Jamie had an excellent idea!

Very nicely done!! You should save this so Sam has a memento of what he was into at this age... and Gray is really into pushing through the screen door, and picking at a tiny hole (or what USED to be a tiny hole) in the screen. Thanks for playing along!

Love that video, Mrs. Speilberg. It's late so I was laughing on the inside. The hammering, oh the hammering. Makes me think I need to find that contraption for Miss A.

Love your cat.

Your husband is cute.

Stay tuned for Baby A's tag.

That video made me howl, and fascinated my three year old. SO funny. Thanks to you, this meme made it all the way to me, and I just thought I'd follow it back to see the others.
Great job, and Sam has a great name! My littlest is a Sam too :)
