14 Months

Dear Sawyer,

You astonish us daily with your cuteness and silliness. Here's what you have been up to the past month.

Learning words like crazy. Things we haven't even tried to teach you! Don't know where you picked them up, but we're glad you did.

  • All Done
  • Daddy
  • Momma
  • Uh-Oh
  • Bye-Bye
  • Hello
  • Please (Pah)
  • Okay (otay)
And you can communicate quite well without really using words as you are very good at pointing and grunting or shaking your head no.

You are getting a set of molars on top and your canines on top, but still only 2 teeth on the bottom. Your teeth total is 10.

You kiss and hug on command now. Mommy may or may not take advantage of this new skill.

Just a few days ago you started to stick out your bottom lip when you wanted something and we said no. It's very hard not to smile when you do this.

If you see your shoes you want to put them on.

When you're not sick and eating well you sleep through the night consistently.

You had your 1st diaper rash this month. It looked pretty painful, but you never complained.

Your newest favorite toys are your mega blocks and throwing the couch pillows.

You LOVE to be tickled. You even laugh just knowing you're going to be tickled. Every night the 1st part of the bedtime routine is tickle time. Usually daddy will chase you around the playroom tickling you until you are laughing so hard you can barely breath. This really wears you out because you are great about going to sleep immediately after we lay you down.

You've acquired a new climbing habit. I've seen you climb up the slide and then proceed to climb onto the craft table, which is a big no-no. You also love to climb into the toy box and then throw out all of the toys.

This month your personality is really starting to shine as you can easily entertain yourself. And one skill you must have learned from daddy, you make yourself laugh multiple times a day.

This morning before the craziness of the day began I held you in my lap while you fiddled with a toy. Miracle of all miracles you sat in my lap for about 10 minutes. Thank you for indulging momma in some snuggle time.

You have your moments of naughtiness, but for the most part you are a joy to be around.

Your daddy and I love you and feel so blessed that God has entrusted us with your life.
