Sunday, October 7, 2012: Hi Sam! I miss you already Sweetheart. Yesterday was a little strange. Unfortunately I will have a lot of time to think about it. I have friends running a marathon in Long Beach and later we are on the Jiu Jitsu World Championships down the street. One of the guys I train with every day is going for a World Championship. I am excited to see him compete.

The other day I was told your ballet was starting up again. So I get to the house at 11:00 to accommodate. When I get there, I find out you never went to ballet. Here we go again with nobody knowing what is going on. To make matters more interesting, a friend of  Adriana Coronel Tenorio (AKA Adriana Howitt Coronel, Ari Coronel, Ari Coronel Tenorio, Ari Howitt, Ari Howitt Coronel) was there to babysit us in her absence. Why? I have no idea. She really did not interfere until 4:00 rolled around. That’s when she was trying to coax you into telling me to leave. Obviously Adriana did not catch anyone up on current events, or this was always going to be business as usual. You kept telling her friend “NO” and kept playing with me. That was adorable.

Other than that, it was a mellow Saturday. We spent most of the time with you curled up either next to me or on top of me as we watched cartoons. I did not care as long as we got to spend time together. Later in the day we did some chalk drawing on the back patio. I took a great picture of your “I LOVE U PAPA (with a big heart)”. I love it Sam! I have it as my wallpaper on my cell phone so everyone can see it. I LOVE YOU SAM!
