Our Boy

Happy Baby

this was taken about 2 weekends ago when we went through the galaxy of lights. basically a walk through of lots of Christmas lights. sawyer started off sleeping and then he woke up. don't let this picture deceive you though. after about 5 min of the happy baby he got really mad because he had gas.

A Boy and his Bell

my parents had their Christmas tree up this weekend when we went to see them for thanksgiving. they put it up for sawyer because he loves to look at lights. this one little bell on one of the bottom branches held his attention and he loved it. he would sometimes involuntarily hit is but this one time he actually held onto is and pulled it off of the tree. we put it back on but he kept doing it. it was so funny. i love how babies amuse themselves.

Sleepy Baby

i love this about him. this is how my baby boy sleeps. it's great!



...then sad

Praise for Poop

so on sunday we went to sunday school and of course little guy came with us. he really loves to throw us off schedule too. we try to feed him right before we leave for church but he always manages to eat once we get there. no big deal we adjust. so i fed him once we got to sunday school. our sunday school class was somewhat different this week. it was definitely a cleansing of the soul. there were tears shed and problems spoken about. instead of our typical lesson we had a discussion time and lots of prayer. after my hubby opened with prayer we kept if open for anyone to pray. as people are praying i'm smelling something and just know that it's baby boys gas. i'm thinking oh know somethings coming. and sure enough after a couple of people are done praying and there is that silence he decided it was his turn and he let loose. over and over again. it was to much for everyone we laughed till we were crying. it was a much need time of laughter and my hubby praise God for His perfect timing and the much needed humor and our class definitely need at that moment. it truly was great. i never thought we would be giving praise for poop. poor little guy was laying in my arms looking around like "...what's so funny? why is everyone laughing?" he had the sweetest innocent face too. it was great.

Baby Boy News

on thursday we took him to have his next RSV shot. the appointment went great until it came time for the shot. they weighed him, 9lbs 9oz. the doctor said that he's doing really well with his weight. when it came time for him to get the shot the nurse put it in his leg and he turned beet red. he was almost purple and it wasn't until she took it out the he really let out a scream. after i scooped him up and held him for a couple of minuets he was okay. but while putting his all in one outfit on i noticed purple dots all over his jaw line and on his forehead. when we were headed out the nurse said that it was probably from him straining so hard with the shot and the doctor looked at it and assured us that it as okay and should go away. it's not saturday and they are still there but definitely fading. just pray that they completely go away.
he's doing so well. my mom came to stay with us for a week and my sister came for a couple of days and we had so much fun watching him laugh and smile at us. it was great.

Random Tuesday

1. What is your favorite Fall color (on clothes, on trees, etc.)? i love them all. green is my all time favorite color and it amazes me that leaves can change from green to all different colors. God is truely amazing. i love fall.

2. What is your favorite Fall food?almost anything pumpkin, apples, thanksgiving dinner

3. Do you like or dislike daylight savings time?i'm not a big fan of it getting dark earlier and i don't really understand daylight savings time. who came up with it? but i'm not sure if it's something that i can say that i like or dislike. the extra hour is yummy.

4. Do you like or dislike football?i guess i like it but my hubby is somewhat obsessed with it so sometimes i don't like it because of his obsession. i actually like going to the games and it's been years since i've been to one.

5. Do you have any special Thanksgiving traditions?not really. maybe we need to start some but just getting together with extended family is great to me.

6. What is the weather like where you live this time of year?i have a love/hate realationship with cold weather. i love bundeling up in warm clothes and drinking warm coffee, cider, coco...but really hate being cold. like right now my toes are feezing and i hate it. the weather is a strange thing here. sometime perfect and then we hear the next day the lows are in the 20's. WHAT! the south! you never know.

7. Share at least one favorite Fall memory. going on hikes, with my camera and viewing fall folage (as my hubby calls it) :)

8. What are you thankful for today? that my mom is here to watch my son, that my sister and grandparent are coming to see my son (and me too), that my hubby is such a hard worker(even when his job can sometimes get him down), that he has that job and makes just the right amount to have the perfect insurance so that we don't have this astronomical bill for baby boys first couple of days.

By The Way...

...i failed to mention that on october 29th my sweet little boy rolled over. i think that is something that is worthy of a post. :) he amazes me every day.

Back to Work

so today was my first day back to work since sawyer was born. it's good and bad all together. i miss him terribly but enjoy the time out and being with grown ups. still at the same time i ache for time with him and would love to be a stay at home mommy. i'm so indecisive. my mom is keeping him this week. she wanted an excuse to come up and see him and i am grateful for it. it made the first day back to work easier not having to get up and get him out of the house. he woke up and i just handed him to my mom. pray though. next week i will be a lot harder getting me and him ready as i go to work and get baby to m's mom. oh! pictures will be coming soon. i'm a little slow getting them put on a cd and then uploaded.
