2.5 Years of Little SG!

Sawyer Grace is halfway to 3 and I can't believe it. When did that happen? She is now 36" tall and weighs about 25 pounds. She is mostly 2T clothing and wears pullups during the day and size 3 diapers at night (same size diapers as Dayton since he was 7 months old)!

Most people say "they are so sweet with a spunky streak," but with Sawyer we think it's the opposite. This little girl's got sass and I'd say she's spunky with a sweet streak. ;)

She's super, super verbal and says almost anything and will repeat us constantly. I've already learned that I need to watch what I say...including the attitude in which I say it. She's super perceptive and will notice if I am in a bad mood or not happy.

Sawyer loves school and has lots of friends there! She does so well there. She loves to come home telling me all about her friends, her teachers, and the buggy rides she took! She also loves telling me about Stretch-n-Grow and songs and toys and games she plays. This month's shape is a circle and she has been drawing them like crazy at home. So fun to see her learning. Her teachers tell me all the time that she is so nice and sweet and friendly at school. I've asked them multiple times if they ever have to correct or discipline Sawyer and they've pretty much responded that she's I guess she's saving all of her fits and tantrums for us at home...and believe me, there are plenty! ;)

Sawyer has gotten more and more smitten with her little brother. She wants me to go get him as soon as she wakes up in the morning. She likes to play in the same room with him and wants to interact with him. She gives him hugs and kisses and tells him "good job, bubba!" when he does something she deems good. Ha ha!

I thought this would be a fun age to do an interview with Sawyer. The first time I tried asking her more than 3 questions in a row she ran away from pretending to be an airplane so I had to wait a while for a better attention span. ;)

Interview with Sawyer at 2.5 years old....

What's your name? "Sawyer"

How old are you? "I'm 2 years old. 2." (while holding up 2 fingers)

Where do you live? "Sawyer's at Rockwall"

What do you like to do with mommy? "don't know, momma, I don't know." When I explained to her what I meant she said "I play with Momma."

What do you like to do with daddy? "play with Daddy!"

What is bubba's name? "zero" (She got his name confused with his age) When I asked again she said: "Dayton!"

How old is Dayton? "zero" (and she makes a zero with her hand)

What do you like to do with Dayton? "I play Bubba"

What do you like to do at church? "play at church!"

What do you like to do at school? "play at school!"

What color do you like? "red and blue"

So as you can see, the common theme is playing. :) She hasn't gotten the art of answering questions down yet, but she sure can talk a lot without being prompted. Ha ha! I love my big 2 1/2 year old.
