3 months old

Riley is 3 months old today! Time is flying by! She's getting so big! Riley is getting better about taking more/longer naps during the day (there have been days where she has literally only taken a couple of 15 minute naps). She will still only go about 6 hours without eating at night, but I can handle that. She wasn't much in the mood for smiling during my mini photo shoot today, but I got some sweet pictures anyway. I'm so thankful for our perfect, beautiful, sweet little angel...

Sawyer's 3rd Birthday Bash

We had Sawyer's birthday party yesterday and he had a blast! It wasn't quite as hot as it has been (around 90) and the kids loved the water slide. Sawyer even had to be coaxed off the slide to open presents!

Could it be?

That my sweet, not quite 3 month old, baby girl is already teething? It appears so! Riley's been drooling like crazy and mouthing her fist and then a couple of days ago I noticed the very small white spot on her left lower gum. My mom said my brother started teething at this same age so I guess it's possible...

My baby, or I guess I should say big, boy is three years old today! Sawyer was born July 7, 2006 at 11:53 pm and weighed 6 lbs 11 oz and was 19 inches long. I asked him yesterday if he would stay my baby boy forever and not grow up and he said "No, I've got to get big." I'm going to attempt to list 36 things about Sawyer:

  4. He loves strawberries
  5. He likes just about all fruits and vegetables

  7. He has good manners, saying "please" and "thank you" without proding, although you do have remind him to say "ma'am" and "sir"

  22. He would always rather be outside
  23. He still likes to be rocked and insists on rocking before naps and bedtime
  24. He will only drink the Very Vanilla flavored soy milk
  25. He can hit a t-ball really well
  26. He's left handed
  27. He likes dental floss

  34. He loves "chocolate cook-lees" (oreos--they surprisingly don't have dairy in them)
  35. He likes to take pictures with my camera
  36. And finally, he is still not completely potty trained

Growing Up

My babies are growing up! Sawyer will be 3 years old tomorrow...I can't believe it. It seems like yesterday he was just a baby. And my baby girl will be 3 months old next week. Where does the time go? Here are just some random pictures from the past couple of weeks. For some reason, Sawyer has not wanted to cooperate with me taking pictures of him lately. Riley is becoming more interactive, smiling and "talking" a lot, especially to the animals that dangle on her bouncy seat. I'll make a special post tomorrow for Sawyer's birthday...
