Well, for those of you who are interested in what this big boy is doing, and for my records here is what he is up to lately.
Walking - Sawyer took his first steps on December 3rd, but didn't start walking really well until a few days before Christmas. Now he walks/runs all over the house with the occassional spill, but he picks himself back up and keeps on going. He still hasn't mastered the art of standing up by himself, but I have no doubt that it's coming soon.
Talking - Sawyer babbles a lot, but the only words he will actually say are Mama and Dada. Dada is by far his favorite word. If Ian leaves for work before Sawyer gets up in the morning he babbles about Dada all morning long! It is so cute and I love that he loves his Daddy so much! Sawyer will sign "all done" regularly. "Please" and "more" are pretty sporadic, so we're working on those along with "Thank you".
Favorites - Sawyer's favorite things right now include, in no particular order: Whit (our black lab), Daddy and Mommy, anything with wheels, and tupperware/bowls that he can turn into drums. Sawyer also loves to dance to music and clap. I'll try to get a video up of that soon!
Food - Sawyer LOVES food! I don't know that we've found anything that this child doesn't like. He eats whatever we eat for dinner, including meats. I definitely can't complain about the way my child eats!
Sleep - Sawyer sleeps 12-14 hours a night and still takes 2 naps a day that are 2 hours each. What can I say? This boy loves to sleep!
Here are a few pictures from Sawyer's birthday party. We had so much fun and can't thank our friends and family enough for helping us celebrate!
Eating his cake! With as wild and active as our child is, we thought he would be a great cake smoosher, but he didn't! He would just stick his hand in, get a taste, and do it again!
Sawyer got a big Mega Blocks truck from Mommy and Daddy and he played with it until we had to leave!
He also played with one of his other favorite toys . . . Daddy. At this point, Sawyer drooled in Daddy's mouth, which he found to be hysterical, but Daddy was less than happy. : )
Uncle Josh got a cute, wiggly Christmas present named Cooper. Sawyer likes him when he's sleepy, but not when he's playful. He's not a big fan of having his ears bitten by a puppy.
Our family on Christmas Day at Granna and Grandaddy's house.
Grandpa Headley had the train set up again under the Christmas tree so Sawyer spent quite a while playing with the trains.
While in Georgia we celebrated Grandaddy and Sawyer's birthdays. Sawyer got his first taste of cake and icing, which he thought was great!
Grandpa and Miss Areatha took us all to the Georgia Aquarium and our little man thought it was the best thing ever! He loved all the big tanks and the many different kinds of fish. He stared in awe most of the day!
After the aquarium we went to the Varsity for lunch. Sawyer was a little tired, which turned into being a very giggly boy!
