Have you ever noticed how time moves faster and faster the older you get? I remember as a kid, Christmas took SO long to come. Thanksgiving to Christmas felt like ten years. Sawyer is 9 months on Friday, and I feel like we’ve only had him for a week, and yet I can’t remember life without him. Although I do remember many nights of staying out late, and using the bathroom without a little boy at my feet.
But I digress- I cannot believe how quickly Sawyer is growing and learning now! In the last month he has learned to crawl and pull up everywhere. In the last two weeks, he has learned how to shake his head no and does is every time he hears "no" or "don’t," is walking around the furniture, can clap his hands and does every time he hears someone say "yay" and waves hi while making a cute noise that sounds a lot like "hi." He even picked up a boy doll yesterday and held it up and said "dad dad dad." Does that count as a first word? No matter what, it was precious! I’ve been so busy watching him grow and playing with him lately that I haven’t taken many real pictures, but lots of video, so here are some still frames from the video camera.
We have been loving this warm weather, and enjoying watching the rain from our porch. We can’t wait for Spring to come! I can’t help but already start planning the rest of his first everything and yet I don’t want him to be enough to have first birthdays or anything like that. I want my Sawyer boy to stay small forever!
