eight months old


and here we are. another month into this parenting gig. this morning i said a little prayer thanking the Lord for another month with our sweet sawyer. (and of course for our sweet cayden. we're about three months out from his THIRD birthday.)

with that being said, sawyer, you light up our lives in ways we never knew were possible. this month has been no different than the last seven. you amaze us, and continue to show us just how different you are from your brother. right now, we're dealing with your second double ear infection... so try as you might, you DO still have things in common with big brother. mama and daddy aren't thrilled this is one trait you're sharing, but we'll get it all figured out.

you moved up to the next classroom at school this past month. there are kiddos already cruising in this class! you've showed us that you're ready to learn about the whole crawling thing after only being in the class a little over a week. tummy time isn't quite as awful for you and you're starting to push up on your hands AND knees! you also like trying to figure out how to go from sitting to tummy. your poor little face has met the floor more times than we can count lately, but you seem ok with it.


you still prefer pureed foods over anything solid. you will stick toast and other bread-like food in your mouth but quickly remove it. that's ok, we'll move on when you're ready! you do like the little puffs and yogurt melts. and i suppose that's a step in the right direction. during the week, you still nurse in the mornings and at night; you have bottles at school that are about half breast milk, half formula. i feel like our days of nursing are starting to dwindle, but i'm going to keep at it as long as you're willing to keep at it!

big brother is still your favorite person. the two of you had a giggle war the other night. cayden would laugh. then you would laugh in a higher pitch. and then cayden would try to top you. the two of you went back and forth for a while and totally enjoyed each other. i have to say that daddy and i thought it was ridiculously cute.

i suppose you'll start crawling sometime in the next month. sigh. and that's alright, i suppose. we are so excited to see what fun you (and your brother) will be getting into. you are both such a joy. we love you to pieces...
