Sawyer is 22 months old! Yikes! I almost have a 2 year old on my hands. Cannot believe it.
Here's what she's up to these days:
- talking up a storm - saying something new everyday! Recently I taught her to say "two" when someone asks how old she is…I know we aren't there yet, but I figured it would be too confusing to switch from 1 to 2 in just a couple of months, plus she needs the practice. ;)
- wearing size 3 diapers and ready to potty train. I just need to get my act together and start!
- wearing 18 month or 2T clothing
- playing with dolls constantly. Feeding them, kissing them, carrying them in her little carseat, etc.
- loving Elmo and Sesame Street! At some point everyday she brings me the "mote" (remote) and tells me "Elmo!" I can't resist when she does this.
- Giving us hugs and kisses - love love love them.
- playing well with others on playdates! Her current best friend is Avery (Kristin's daughter) and she talks about her often.
- She loves Mathis (Charlie's & Ginni's son) and talks about him every single day. We don't know why. Haha!
- She refers to Dayton as "Bubba" or "Dayton" or "baby" and will say "baby cries" whenever he fusses.
- She is into throwing away his diapers…but she has started throwing away clean ones, too, so I have to go find them every now and then.
- This past month she showed more independence in the Chick-fil-A playground. She wants to play in there so bad, but wants me to be in there, too. She cries when she notices that I walked out, but she is getting better and better. :)
- She went to "parents night out" at c|Life and had a blast! She didn't cry when we dropped her off and she didn't want to leave when we picked her up! Same thing when I took her to the gym…when I got there to pick her up she didn't want to leave. Made me smile. My baby is growing up and branching out. :)
- She is eating more and more kinds of food. Still in love with turkey, chicken nuggets, milk, grapes, and apples. She actually ate an entire kid's meal at Chick-fil-A one day. Impressive!
- She takes a solid 2-3 hour nap during the day and usually goes to sleep between 8pm-9pm at night and wakes up between 7am-8am in the morning. Oh, what I'd give to have her sleep til 10am sometimes!!!
- She now folds her hands and bows her head when we pray at dinner. It's cute. :)
- She tries to sing the ABC's and successfully sings one line of Ring Around the Rosy: "Ashes, ashes, we all fall" haha.
- She tries to count and knows most of the numbers, but gets them out of order. :)
- She loves to drink out of normal cups with straws. If she sees you with a cup with a straw she WILL ask you for a "dink!" ;)
She's a hoot and we love her to death. Here are my favorite pictures of her from the past month…

I just love when she falls asleep in the car after church…this was my attempt at getting a picture of her in her cute dress before she took a nap and got all "disheveled looking"
