Today is Sawyer’s first birthday! What?! I absolutely can’t believe it has already been a year since he was born! Where in the world did the time go? However, I feel so excited because he has learned so much and is always such a happy boy! It’s crazy how even the simplest things are so exciting when it is your own child. Something like pointing to an object may not seem like that big of a deal to most people but when you are the one to raise them and see them go through a phase of only eating, pooping and burping and all of a sudden they’re communicating! It’s HUGE!
It’s very funny actually, I have recently noticed that there are many conversations like this in our house; Sawyer: “baadaaaaaaay.” Me to my husband: “oh my gosh…oh my gosh! Did you hear that? He said BATH TIME!!” My husband: “I think that’s a reach, hun.”
At one year he is now walking, saying a few words, laughs all the time, points at things and is showing so much personality now! In fact, he is even getting a bit sassy. Giving dirty looks or yanking MY phone away from me when I try to take it back from him. He can be quite a stinker but he is SO much fun! I love spending my days with him.
1 Year Old! Happy First Birthday to my amazing little guy! ❤
What I am about to say, I still can’t believe…Sawyer is starting to walk! WALK! Okay, how in the world did that happen?! Wasn’t I just bringing him home from the hospital? It is only a week and a half away from his first birthday. No doubt, that will be an exciting yet teary day!
He isn’t fully walking yet or standing up on his own but he will take a few steps after letting go of my hand. Everyone always says, “ooh boy, now you will really have your hands full!” Which, is true but thankfully Sawyer is a mega crawler…super fast, stands up on everything, climbs everything ands gets into eeeverything! So hopefully that has accustomed me to the “having my hands full” stage even if just a little bit 😛
The dvd’s is a big thing to get into right now. They are low and easy to access and I haven’t thought of a new place to put them. To be honest, half the time I just let him pull them all (and I do mean ALL) out of the shelves and play with them. I mean, he’s sitting there entertained for a good amount of time and not harming anything…go for it! But the other struggle, dog food. Oh my goodness the dog food!!! Is anyone else’s child obsessed with dog food?! We have a huge great dane so his bowls stand up from the ground. It all started with him standing up to the bowls and digging his hands all in his food and putting it in his mouth. Gross. So finally I’ve been putting the bowls up if he is venturing around and playing. So that helps. But now the problem is he somehow finds any itty bitty piece of dog food crumb on the flood. Doesn’t matter how much I sweep or vacuum. He will find it! And yet, won’t touch the perfectly clean and cooked peas I try to feed him, go figure.
As crazy as things can be with a little one crawling around, it is my favorite thing in the world! He is so entertaining, makes me laugh and I am constantly having new stories to tell ❤
