Happy Birthday Saywer!!

One year ago today Sawyer joined our little clan. It's insane to me how fast the time goes.

Sawyer has developed quickly in his short little life. Crawling at 4 months, walking at 9, and 7 fully grown teeth by the time he was 11 months old!! His size on the other hand.....well, he's a little on the runty side of average. But we don't mind. His tinyness just makes his personality a whole lot cuter.

And when it comes to personality, Sawyer has got it in spades. From the time he was just a couple of months old people have been telling us how happy of a baby he is. He is ALWAYS smiling big toothy grins and it doesn't take more than a little poke in the ribs to send him into fits of laughter. He is such a goofy little kid too. He loves making faces at you and doing anything he can think of to make you laugh. He loves when the boys play with him, but he's also completely content just sitting on the floor and playing by himself or dragging his puppy on a string behind him as he walks circles through the house.

We are so blessed to have been given this wonderful little boy. We love him so much and are excited to see what he will become. Happy Birthday Saw-Saw!

A year of Sawyer

Tomorrow is Sawyer's 1st birthday. It's so hard to believe that one year ago today I was nervously preparing to go to the hospital. I was so worried about everything that could go wrong (typical me). Thank God everything went perfectly and our little angel came into the world. It's been an exciting first year. Watching him grow so much in such a short amount of time has been a lot of fun for all of our family. He's such a crazy little boy and we all love him so much. So to celebrate Sawyer's first year on this earth, here is a group of photos. One picture for each month that's he's been with us.

Welcome to the world little boy!

Little McSawyer had a farm......

For Sawyer's first birthday party we've picked the theme of "baby farm animals". I was looking online at party stores and right when the decorations caught my eye, I knew that was it. The plates and stuff are SO adorable. So even before I ordered the party supplies I hopped on ebay and bought him a baby sized straw hat. I immediatly knew that I wanted to dress him like a little farmer for his party.

Last week Logan and I dressed Sawyer up in his party clothes (overalls, a plaid shirt, and his little hat) and took him down into the valley for a photoshoot. I wanted to put a picture of him in his little hat on the front of the invitations for his party. He of course wouldn't keep it on. I would set up the shot, count to three, and Logan would pop the hat onto Sawyer's head right before I took the picture. But it didn't work too well. He had that hat off faster than I could take a photo!! So even though I didn't get the picture that I was hoping for, the ones that I DID get turned out great. At the request of Grandma Shellie, here are the pictures from Sawyer's farmer photo shoot.
