Aunty Caron made you your birthday cake and the cupcakes. It was such a wonderful day. Samantha, we had such a fun year with you. It was so fun to discover your sweet personality and everything about you that makes you so special. From 11 months you started to pick up a pen and somehow you knew exactly how to hold it. You would sit with the pen and paper for up to half an hour. It was fascinating watching you. You definitely liked to work with your hands building, organizing and coloring (scribbling). Your first word was "no". Not surprising as you definitely express what you life and don't like. You are such a beautiful little baby that is going to bring us so much joy and happiness. I love you to pieces! With all my love, Mom
