Can you get a load of this face? I just want to kiss him and hug him and nom on his chubby arms and legs! Apparently the apple doesn't fall far from the tree, because Sammy had pretty much the same reaction to his cousin, Henry, that I did.
I'm pretty sure Sammy's thinking something along the lines of "ZOMG BABY! Must. Tickle. Now." in the above shot.
Sammy wasted no time at all in playing with his cousin, repeatedly going in for "tickles" and some corporal cuddling. Fortunately Henry is super easy going and he handled all of Sammy's affection remarkably well, especially for someone who had been up since 3:15 that morning.
For their first day together, I think the two boys did remarkably well. I think they're going to be the best of buddies by the time Henry has to return to Pennsylvania next week.
