First Halloween

Despite the last hour and the fact that he couldn't even have any of the candy that he work so hard at being cute for, Sawyer was all smiles. He didn't mind his monkey costume. In fact I might even go as far as to say that he liked it. But the thing that he loved above all about his first Halloween was watching his big cousins. Dinosaur Cooper and Ironman Dawson were, to Sawyer, the most entertaining part of a great Fall evening.

-Uncle Mark and the most precious Nixon-bear.-

-Ironman Dawson.-

-A ferocious Coop-o-saur.-

-Trev imparting the secrets of charming candy to Sawyer before the night began. Sawyer was a good student.-

Nine Months!

Weight: 19 lbs 7 oz

Height: 27 1/4 inches

Little explorer: He is becoming a little more mobile everyday. He scoots, he rolls, he sort of crawls in a forwards fashion and he's mastered cruising in reverse.   

Words: Sawyer is finding his voice! He now says momma and dadda (but not yet with recognition) and a whole host of other sounds.


Newest trick: This month has been a steep learning curve for Sawyer. Among his many new tricks comes the infamous raspberry. This new spitting trick makes for messy, messy dinner times!

Favourite toy:
Sawyer loves his singing teddy. He dances, claps and squeals in time with the different songs. It's so cute!

Yum, yum:
We have discovered that Sawyer loves pumpkin pie. And, if you're not careful, he'll finish off an entire piece in no time!

First: Our personal favorite memory from this month has been when our little man wakes himself in the morning singing. There is no better way to awaken than to the singing of an adorable little baby.

Finger Foods

Sawyer had recently really started to enjoy finger foods and as the pictures attest more than one member of our family are stoked about this new progress. Needless to say this is the beginning of a beautiful journey for Sawyer and his puppy! :)

Eight Months!

Words: Sawyer loves to make himself known especially in situations that call for peace and quiet. Take for example our visit to church on Sunday. While sitting in amongst 2000 fellow attendees the Pastor asks for everyone to take a quiet moment to reflect and connect with God. It was at the moment when the congregation was at its quietest when Sawyer bursts out in the loudest holler we've heard yet and not just one holler but a whole sentence of hollers!

Walking: No crawling or walking but he does stand very well.

Newest trick: Waving 'hello' and 'good bye'. And we almost think that he's starting to understand what a 'kiss' is. We've had a few slobbery cheeks to attest.

Favourite toy:
Anything that he can bang together to make noise. He even loves to rub things back and forth across his soother making a clattering sound.

Little explorer: Our little man is getting frustrated with not being able to get where it is that he wants to go. He lays on his tummy and flaps like a seal trying to crawl... so far he's made it to mom's candelabra once and had a wonderful time tipping all of the candles on to the floor.

Sitting in the bathtub. Trevor says that we are now officially a family... we have toys and an alligator mat in the bathtub!

Likes: Sawyer loves to entertain! He already has his dad's charming ways.

Favorite moment:
When he laughs so hard he snorts! There is nothing more adorable!
