4 months down!

I had my 16 week baby check-up today. Everything went really well! I am measuring at 16 1/2 cm (which means 16 1/2 weeks), all my blood work came back great and the baby's heartbeat was 140 beats per minute. Our ultrasound is scheduled in 3 1/2 weeks! We are so excited to finally see our little baby (and no we are not finding out the sex of the baby).

Quilt #2

This shows the front and the back. The back was blue (material that Sawyer picked out) with a red border.

One of the two types of squares that made the entire quilt.

The second square. Annie loves flowers - the material fit her perfectly.

I have finished my second quilt!!! This one I made for my mother in-law (Annie). I gave it to her at Thanksgiving - I am just so grateful for the son that she gave me.

Why Gr-Ma is the best!

Gr-Ma lets me play with doll houses!!!!

Gr-Ma lets me empty all of her drawers!

And my Gr-Ma sits down and talks to my cousin, Treyton, and reads him stories over the phone!

Hey Everyone,

My mom told me to update her blog so I thought I would tell everyone why my Gr-Ma is so AWESOME! My mom always talks about how AWESOME her mom is but these are just some of the reasons why my Gr-Ma is the BEST one ever!!!

I love you!

Baby #2

The test was taken the night of Friday October 2nd!!!

The very excited parents!!!

I'm not real sure how excited Sawyer is for being a big brother; but I'm sure once he sees the little one it will be love at first sight!

Learning how to eat is so much FUN!

Eating applesauce with a spoon...did pretty good.

But drinking the applesauce is much easier!!!

This also works pretty well just lean forward and eat right off the tray!

Okay...that kind of gave me a back ache so now I'll try to use my fork.

Dear Jesus...please help me learn how to eat my food; it's kind of hard. AMEN!!!

First Steps

Sawyer took his first two steps this evening!!!!

I was in the kitchen putting my pizza on the piazza (sp?) and Sawyer was standing holding onto my legs. He then let go and lead against the cupboards. I looked down to make sure he had his balance and then took a side step to move to the sink to throw away garbage underneath. When I relooked at him he had a look in his eyes that said "I want you mommy". So I took another step back and just reached down my hand. He then reached towards me and put his left foot forward and then his right foot! He fell down after that.

I was pretty excited so we called daddy at work right away!

Birthday Weekend

On the 4th of July Sawyer decided to get a little adventerous. He climbed up on his bench and then sat on the back of it...I held my breathe the whole time. He has excellent balance though and he never fell.

I just couldn't help it. He makes some of the greatest faces while doing his "business".

On his birthday GramMie came over and surprised him with ice cream! We took the lid off the container and while I had my back turned to get the bowls out he reached down and dug right in. This is one of the first pictures we the end him and GramMie were a lot more messy.

Daddy had to work on Sawyer's birthday. So after daddy left for work Sawyer and I had lunch at Aspen (were I used to work) and then we made cookies. We then visited daddy on his supper break and shared the cookies with him and the rest of his co-workers. We had a lot of FUN!

Papa decided that it would be a "good" idea to take Sawyer for a bike ride on his birthday. When the helmet was extremely heavy and this is actually the only picture we got of him holding his head up; otherwise his head was resting on the windshield. He hated the helmet and started to scream. We took the helmet off and then him and Papa coasted/walked the motorcycle down the driveway while it was turned off.

Happy 1st Birthday!!!!

This was Sawyer this morning opening up one of his presents. It was the Little People Farm set. He loved it!

Sawyer eating the waffles we made him for breakfast. First time eating waffles and he loved it! When daddy was going to put a little bit of syrup (I know the picture shows a lot of syrup and that is because there was a came out faster than what daddy was thinking) he tried drinking out of the syrup bottle.

This is Sawyer still in his PJ's waiting patiently for mommy and daddy to finish making his waffles.

This is Sawyer sleeping in this morning. I could have cried here but I held it in. I just remember laying him in his crib on July 4th when we got home from the hospital and he had so much room when laid down this way. Now...he is all scrunched up and his feet hanging out of the bars.

This was on Tuesday...he got his first haircut! He did so well. Sat all by himself in the chair and sat so still for Brenda. Thank you Brenda and Vibe Salon...YOU ROCK!
