Dear Daddy,

I think im finally 100% recovered! Yesterday we had a day out with Nana, we went to play in the soft play area and I also ate cake!! We then went back to Nanas house and I decided that I wanted Nana's chickens to 'fly up to the sky' so I kindly let them out for her. Today Nana is coming to get me again so we can have fun as Harriet has a day off of school. I dont think she wants me to let her chickens out again though! I really wish you were here Daddy - ive forgotton your smell! Here is a picture of Mummy and Molly and George. It was early and she hadnt even brushed her hair! Mummy misses you a lot too.

Love Sam

Dear Daddy,

Sorry I haven't written for 2 days but I was so sick. Really sick. I ended up having to go to the doctors as I was just throwing up EVERY.THING Mummy gave me and I hadn't eaten for 4 days. The doctor was very nice and she said I didn't have anything wrong with me except a virus. She said I had 12hrs to stop being sick or I would have to go to hospital to get some fluids. Luckily my tummy heard her and stopped making me sick! Yesterday I felt much better and I was able to drink lots of water. I even went out with Nana Ann and we went to the toy shop and I got a playdough factory thing AND we went to look at motorcycles with Dave (but I like to call him 'Bobby' instead!!)

I have a pre-school visit organised for the 11th of July. Im so sad that you wont be able to come too :(

Here is a picture of Molly snuggled up with Lola! Molly is feeling much better too and she even ate some breakfast this morning! 

I love you Daddy

Dear Daddy,

Bad times :( I'm still sick. I haven't moved much all day again. We went out on a walk to see the river as it's really hot here but Grandad had to carry me in the carrier-back-pack as I'm too poorly to walk far. Mummy was getting a bit worried today as I really couldn't keep anything much down. Hopefully I will feel better tomorrow or I might have to make my 1st trip to the doctors here.

I love you so much Daddy and I wish so hard that you were here to lay down with me and make me feel better.

Love Sam. xx

Dear Daddy,

I'm still really sick :( I was being sick all day yesterday and a few times at night too. Luckily Ive only thrown up once today so far but I just feel so ill. I have a high temperature and I just don't want to move at all. We did go to the French Market in Saffron Walden this morning, but I just dozed the whole time and was very quiet. I wish you were here to give me a cuddle!

Dear Daddy,

I'm so sick :( I was up most of the night throwing up. Mummy let me come and sleep in bed with her as Molly had a fever too. Poor Mummy was going backwards and forwards between holding my sick bowl and taking Molly's temperature and giving her medicine. None of us slept much at all. I don't think Mummy even went to sleep. Here I am this morning feeling poorly with Lola. I have been sick 3 times this morning so far. I wish you were here to give me a cuddle!

Love Sam

Dear Daddy,

Molly has recently got really into climbing! she tries to climb on ANYTHING. Here she is two days after climbing on a box in the laundry room - she fell off and hit her face on a shelf! Poor Molly! You can see the bruise on her right cheek. She has also had a vomit bug. She sicked in her bed last night and she has thrown up a few times today too. Poor girl has had bad luck!

I love you Daddy, Molly really wishes Daddy was here to give her cuddles and make her feel better!

Love from Sam

Dear Daddy,

sorry I didnt write yesterday, we had a busy day at the base. Mummy went to see lots of different people! I saw LOTS of noisy planes too! They made Molly cry! I was very sad to hear about Grandpa Casey. I am glad that I got to meet him several times and I'm very glad that he got to meet Molly too. I will miss seeing him when we come to Ohio.

Here we are Daddy! playing in the sand. Molly loves splashing in wet sand! Notice how we're in long sleeves, no shorts and t-shirts here in England!! haha!

Dear Daddy,

It's Father's Day today and I miss you. I asked mummy again today if we could get in a plane and come and find you.

We spent the day at Nana Anns, we had lunch there and I played with Harriet. It was good fun! Im going to sleep much faster here than I did at home as Im so exhausted by bedtime!

Here is another one of my many, MANY webcam shots that I took all by myself!

Dear Daddy,

Today I stayed with Gran-nan and we did 'man stuff' while Mummy and Nana Jo and the babies went into Cambridge. This afternoon Mummy took me to the river while Molly napped. I saw fish swimming and lots of different plants! Im also getting really good at putting twigs down rabbit holes!

It was nice to see you on Skype today! I missed you yesterday!

Love Sam

Dear Daddy!

Here we are!! in my bedroom! Molly tried on your special hat that you let me keep!

Guess what Daddy! today we went into the meadow and took a container and I caught all kinds of insects. I found a ladyberg (and that is NOT a typo as you know!) a caterpillar, a bitey thing and a woodlouse. I wish you could have helped me!

It was nice to speak to you on Skype today again! I do wish you would wear something more than your underwear though!

Miss you Daddy

Dear Daddy,

I thought the link might make you smile - like a 'cheese stick' I now know LOADS of the words. I sing it to mummy!! 'putting bottles on the ice, like a a cheesestick' I like to sing it over and over actually. I also like to sing 'P!NK' and will sing 'right right turn out the light, we gonna lose our minds tonight, what's the deal yo?!' No one can say im not cultured Daddy!

Today I have come to the conclusion that you live in the computer! so that's what im sticking with for now as when I see you, that's where you always are! I wish you would stop living in there and come and live here with me! The bedtime routine isn't quite the same without you winding me up into an insane frenzy!

So, Daddy - today we played at home. Nana Ann popped over and helped me build my train track!

I miss you Daddy...a LOT xxx

Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Dear Daddy,

Today we went for a walk to the rec. I spent ages on the swings with Uncle George. I said that I missed you and that I 'wanted to go back to your house' so, I'm still confused about where you actually are!

Mummy found over 120pictures of me on the computer that id taken on the web cam all by myself! Here is one to show you:

 And for good measure here is one of me and Mummy. We have to use the webcam now as the camera has died and the cable is in the box you shipped to us - that still hasn't arrived!!

It was so good to see you today on Skype Daddy. I love you.

Love Sam

Dear Daddy,

I built a tower with Mummy using ALL of the blocks today - well actually, it's an 'airport'. Last night I decided I wanted to come 'home' to see you. Mummy explained where you were but I still don't quite understand really.

Today we went to Saffron Walden with Nana! we went to your favourite place - the Mocha!!! I even had a chocolate milkshake! Nana found me a massive trainset in your most hated shop! Im going to add it to the trainset I already have to make a HUGE one!

Miss you Daddy,

Love Sam xxx

Dear Daddy,

Today Nana Jo got some more balls for the play pen! I loved it! While Nana Jo and Mummy were at Tesco Gran-nan and I went to the shop and got some weesties and ate them under the big conker tree on the village green!

Here I am in our very own ball pit!

Friday, June 10, 2011

Dear Daddy,

Today we spent the day with Nana Ann. We went to a nursery (a plant nursery) but it had a play area which was SO fun - I even did a wee in it for good measure! This meant that Mummy had to take my wet trousers off and my wet underwear and thankfully she had a spare pair of my underwear in her bag - but no dry trousers. So I got to go around the rest of the nursery in my underwear! it was really fun! We went back to Nana's house and I played with Harriet and Ryan. We played choo-choos and I got a bubble gun which made bubbles ALL over the garden! I wish you could have been there!!

This picture is actually from yesterday but I thought it would make you smile. It shows a point when Mummy was in high demand with two babies hanging on her legs, both wanting to be picked up!

I miss you Daddy.

Dear Daddy,

I got a bit confused yesterday, I thought you were lost. It's hard for me to understand that you are away for so long. Mummy told me you were at work, but im wondering when you'll be home? Today I have been wondering if you will bring presents when you come back as Mummy said you might be back for my birthday next year. I hope you are. Today was a nice day outside, we played in the sand and on the swing. Here is Molly. She is feeling a bit better today and she LOVES the swing.

Im so confused about where you are Daddy and I cant wait to see you on Skype next week. I love you very much.

Dear Daddy,

It's so nice having a dog again! I think Lola remembers me from when I was a baby! Today I stuck stickers on her to make her look pretty and she liked it!

Guess what Daddy!! Molly got her 1st tooth today! Sorry you missed it! I stuck my finger in her mouth as always and felt a sharp tooth poking through on her lower right side! Now she will be able to bite me!

Nana came over this morning and took some photos of Molly, George and I so hopefully there's some good ones I can show you! I

I hope you enjoy moving into your new dorm room tomorrow!

Love Sam ♥

Dear Daddy,

Poor Mummy - Molly was up almost all night as she has a cold today. Uncle George was up all night too with vomitation! When it rains it pours I suppose! Nevertheless we managed to get into Saffron Walden with Nana Ann and she got me a new plane and a sticker book!

I got to speak to you on Skype today as you're finally in Korea! The countdown is on!

Here I am eating grapes from Waitrose! 

we all  miss you Daddy. Molly wishes you were here to wipe her snotty nose!

Love Sam

And, we're OFF

Dear Daddy,

we're off, our 'year' starts here. We made it. The flight was fun. I enjoyed seeing all of the different planes. Mummy made a video.

When I first arrived here at Gran-nans and Nana Jo's I was amazed by all of the flowers and trees! I couldn't believe how many differnt colours there were!

We went to see Great Grandma Jenny on Friday and yesterday we went to Saffron Walden and to Nana-Anns house. Today I have been helping Gran-nan in the garden with planting broccoli plants.

Molly is OK Daddy! she is doing lots of sleeping and playing with George.

Here we all are watching the computer with Gran-nan.

I love you Daddy

Love Sam
