Four Months!

Little explorer: With many more to follow... a trip to the Rocky Mountains. A few weekends ago Sawyer and I ventured to Shunda Creek Hostel for a stagette. Lucky Sawyer. The weekend was wonderful. We hiked, hot tubbed (sort of), and had a huge breakfast. Thanks Kim for the wonderful getaway and thank you Laurel for providing the excuse.

New smile: smiling + giggling + blowing bubbles = slobbery messes. Don't get me wrong, Sawyer is still adorable; he's just adorable in sopping clothes.

Newest trick: Sitting in his Bumbo. I know that this doesn't quite count as sitting up but it's a pretty big step. He just doesn't seem at all like a baby when he is vertical and playing with toys.

First: Going to bed at 9:30. It's been a long journey of sleepless nights and fitful days but Sawyer now seems to wind down at around 9:30 instead of his usual midnight. We are so thankful for the schedule change and are embracing our few hours of "free time" in the evenings.

Favorite moment: Sawyer now seems to play shy. If he does end up having a quiet side, he definitely comes by it honestly...

Trying to learn: Two fists are better than one. If it's not his soother in his mouth, it's a few fingers or a fist (or both fists for that matter). These past few weeks Sawyer has learned the art of grabbing, holding and somehow everything seems to find it's way to his mouth. Now if only he could figure out how to put his soother back in.
