How is this happening?
When I look at Sawyer I see a little boy. Not a baby anymore. He’s grown so much just in the last month or two. You would never guess he used to have weight issues. He’s huge.
He’s standing and cruising, taking assisted steps, crawling, talking, and playing all day. He and Bennett have become best of friends, it’s so fun to watch them play.
He’s 20 lbs, 15 oz and 30 inches long. The doctor didn’t even mention the tests we never went back for and said everything looks great. We’re so glad to be out of the woods with weight issues! He eats a lot more table food now and I’ve stopped making purees every week. He’s not really interested in them! He would rather eat what we eat. He still gets pouches (we like Happybaby!) and baby snacks like puffs, teething biscuits, yogurt melts, etc.
He still loves bath time, riding in the stroller, eating, Sesame Street, and playing with his toys. He’s starting to hate his car seat and car rides, being in his crib while awake, and still hates the wind. We survived his first road trip and plane ride and are well on the way with planning his first birthday party! He loves to smile for the camera, can say Dada, Mama, Nana (my mom), and light. He can wave bye bye and loves to scream at the top of his lungs. He’s looking more like his Daddy everyday. He has two teeth and working on a couple more!
I celebrated my first Mother’s Day and had a great day with my boys. I’m sad that he no longer sits still long enough to snuggle, and self-weaned from nursing, but it’s also so fun to watch him learn new things and explore. I still rock him to sleep every night. He can put himself to sleep if I put him in his crib with a bottle, but I’m not ready to give up that time with him yet. I can’t believe in just about 6 weeks we;ll have a toddler!
