Sawyer 18 Months... plus some

I know... I am so behind! Sawyer is coming up on 20 months and I haven't even done his 18 month post yet!  I cannot even begin to describe how much I love this little boy!  He is so full of life and has such a sweet spirit!  He makes us laugh one minute and makes us want to pull our hair out the next!  He is busy, busy and has to be right in the middle of everything!  He has the cutest smile and most infectious laugh.  His little voice melts our hearts and I think he knows he can get just about anything he wants if he just asks for it.  He tries his daddy's patience every day (although Daddy didn't have much to start with) but he also has daddy wrapped around each and every chubby little finger! Skeet is the biggest pushover when it comes to his little boys... especially Sawyer.  I am sure as Cooper gets older it will be the same for him as well.  Here are a few updates on Mr. Sawyer.

He is currently around 25.5 pounds and at his 18 month check up he was 34 inches tall.  He was in the 92nd percentile for height and I believe around the 30th for weight.  He is just really tall and really skinny! He is wearing 24 month and 2T size clothes and is in size 5 diapers. 

He has been talking up a storm and been able to form 4-5 word sentances lately.  I have to admit that as much as I hate how fast he is growing up, it is nice to be able to ask him what he wants and have him tell us.  It saves us a lot of time and a lot of wasted food!!  Just last night as we were sitting in the Carl's Jr. drive through he said to me "I wan some fench fies".  It was so cute I could hardly get him a french fry fast enough!!   Most of the time we can make sense of what he is saying but occasionally he'll try speaking to us in his jabber language and we have no clue what he wants! 

He has finally developed a love for milk and we love to hear him ask for a "dink".  His favorite foods are currently bananas (nanas), cheese, corn dogs, chicken nuggets, spaghetti, oatmeal, eggs, berries of any kind, and ketchup, to name a few. 

He still adores Callie "Ca-die".  He loves to climb on her and give her kisses.  He went through a phase where he had to give her multiple treats a day but once she started having accidents in the house (the really nasty, stinky kind) we put an end to the numerous treats a day. 

His new obsession is plugging things in and turning things on and off.  He loves the Christmas lights on the house and according to him, all the lights are "pitty" and "boo (blue)"  We have no idea how to get him to stop trying to unplug and plug in the tree and other things around the house.  Especially now that he has figured out how to unplug the child proof outlet covers. 

He loves to play on our bed, have us chase him around the house, run around naked, get in the shower with dad, turn on his and Cooper's humidifiers full blast, pull things out of cupboards and drawers, and play with our iPhones or the iPad.  He prefers to be in your arms if you are doing anything so he can see what you are doing and make comments!

He hates having his teeth brushed, diaper changed, clothes put on, jacket put on, jacket taken off, going to bed, getting in his car seat, anytime daddy leaves, sitting in his high chair and getting out of the bath. 

We just bought him a booster seat so he can sit at the kitchen table and he loves it as long as we don't strap him in.

He likes to give you "5" and knuckles but it usually takes a lot of begging to get a kiss (unless you are daddy).  When he does give them, he gives the sweetest kisses and hugs. 

If I had time I would keep a journal of all the cute things he says and does.  He brightens our lives so much and we love every moment we get to spend with him!  He loves to make us laugh and is constantly being silly!  He is starting to love his little brother (most of the time) and loves to make him laugh and smile too.  He still gets jealous occasionally and tries to hit or push Cooper out of the way so we still have to make sure they are never alone together. 

I can't say enough good things about my cute little monkey.  He and his brother and sister are my reason for being and I am complete now that I am a mom!  I couldn't be happier.  No matter what else happens in my life, I know that I am so blessed because I have them and as long as they are taken care of and happy, nothing else matters!

Here are some fun pictures from the last couple of months...

I found your blog after you found out you were pregnant with Sawyer and i was also pregnant. So the whole time i compared my pregnancy with yours (promise i'm not a stoker! LOL) I had my son early (2/24/11) and he is 22 months old but i can not believe how much my son and your son is alike!

Anyway, i love reading your blog about your beautiful family!
