I'm sure there are more that I'm missing, but I think that is a good list

Samantha you have been such a trooper over these last 18 months. We have moved once and we have traveled many times back and forth from Tenneessee to Chicago. You do great in the car. Although sleeping hasn't been your thing for the last few months, its ok. I love waking up to you kissing me and saying "up mama". You are such a lovie. You have been going to bed about 8:30 pm and waking at 3:00 am to come in bed with me and then sleeping until 7:30. You also are taking a 2 hour nap still in the afternoon (please don't stop this...mommy LOVES this time).

What more can I say Samantha, you are the center of our world and we love every minute of it. You have so much love. These next 6 months are going to be so much fun. You are learning something new everyday. Samantha we love you more than words can say! Happy 18 month birthday baby girl!
