Amos & His Family

Amos & His Family

My name is Amos. I am three years old. I have two big brothers and one big sister. I guess that makes me the baby of the family, but my mom says I'm a big boy now. She told daddy that I have lots of new tricks. Her favorite is when I surprise her with a kiss. I have been singing a lot and she always knows what the song is, even though it's really humming. Twinkle twinkle, ABC, One Little Finger, I love those songs I have been hearing at my school. I p ..

Amos & The Beach

Amos & The Beach

My name is Amos. The beach is my good place. I am happy as a clam wallowing in the sand. I play with my big trains and the shells my sister finds for me. I like to run in and out of the water. I like to chase my brothers and sister. I do not like icky moon jellies. I can't go to the beach and not ask for ice cream. My mom says that's my idea of peas and carrots. I don't like peas and carrots, but I do like a nutty buddy on the sandbar. I a ..

Amos & The Sled

Amos & The Sled

My name is Amos. I have a red sled. My mom bought it when she was having her first baby, my big brother Thomas. I had no idea sledding would be so fun. I rode down a big hill with Thomas, Russell and Blair. We fell off and I didn't cry, I laughed. Mommy said you could have knocked her over with a feather. She was shocked. I don't know why. I like new things. It wasn't that cold in my snowsuit. My mittens were annoying, but I wore them  ..

Amos & The Snowsuit

Amos & The Snowsuit

My name is Amos. This is my snowsuit. My mom bought it at a yard sale in Key Biscayne for $5. I am the fourth person in our family to wear it. I can say "no" for snow. I wasn't quite sure what snow was, but now I know. I have been practicing sitting in my sled in my snowsuit. I'm not a fan of hats or being cold. I'm thinking me bundled up and walking on ice is not ideal. Being inside, eating yogurt raisins, and playing with my school bus may be pr ..

Amos & The House

Amos & The House

My name is Amos. This is my house. My grandfather, DB, bought it for my sister at a yard sale before I was born. DB may act tough, but last year, he moved it beside the pool so I could use it more. I go inside and then stick my head out the window and say, "Hello!" I like for my brothers and sister to say, "Knock Knock!" I'm getting so tall that I have to duck to get through the door. I never hit my head though on that. I love my house. It's all min ..

Amos & The Foot

Amos & The Foot

My name is Amos. That is my foot. On my daddy's pillow. I am not a big fan of sleeping in my crib. Really, I just don't like sleeping by myself. My mom and dad don't relish sleeping with me though. I don't know why. I may be a teensy bit squirmy. My mom says I may have won a few battles, but she is going to win the war. I'm not so sure about that. I'm awfully perseverant. Not to mention, very cute. I can't help it if I get lonel ..

Amos & The Grandmother

Amos & The Grandmother

My name is Amos. This is my grandmother. Her name is Mamie. I can almost say it. She thinks I can. She loves me and worries about me as much as my mom. I was crying in the kitchen and she kept saying, "What happened?", over and over and over. I couldn't tell her. That's the hardest part, my mom said as she picked me up and kissed me over and over. I felt better when we cooked eggs. I said, "hot, hot, hot" and said, "nana," so she helped me pe ..

Amos & The Fear

Amos & The Fear

My name is Amos. Did you know I fear very little? I used to be terrified of school buses. My mom and I would wait for my brothers and sister and as it came near, she said I would tremble and clutch her her shirt. I ride a school bus now and it's not scary one bit. Nothing else scares me that I know of. My mom says it's a little bit of a problem. Today I ran around at the yacht club and she was terrified I would fall in the dark water. I get so tickled ..

Amos & The Pool

Amos & The Pool

My name is Amos. I adore the pool. I am much better at jumping but my feet still won't move. I take my mom's hands and make her hold me. She said I jumped in last summer and even went under. I do not remember that. It sounds unsafe. I swam with my big brother and my daddy. I squeal and screech and laugh mightily the whole time I'm in the pool. My mom says that why I swallow so much water. She promises we can do swim lessons when we get home. ..

Amos & The Ouchie

My name is Amos. I cried a lot this morning. My mom almost cried too. I have no idea what's wrong with him, she kept saying. Maybe the antibiotics are hurting his tummy, she wondered aloud. It wasn't my tummy. I hate that medicine though. It takes two people to give it to me. I'm stronger than I look. Mom decided we needed a change of scenery. I never cry on the golf cart. We rode the golf cart to the beach. Ah-ha, she said, when I ..
