Changes...


Like a typical younger sibling, Sawyer has wanted to join in from the time he could first focus on Ian and watch him run around the room. Up until now, he's just been reading with us, playing with the toys, and coloring occasionally. Then yesterday, while Ian was molding some play dough, Sawyer climbed up and pointed to the containers, looking at me imploringly. I obliged and was thrilled to see him mashing and molding right away. He played long after Ian had left the table and I was happy to sit along side him making snakes and stars and animals.

I realized this is the beginning of the end. The 'baby' is nearly behind us now. He's becoming less and less satisfied with sitting with me or being carried around, he wants to jump in and refuses to be left out of anything. Since he began walking, the world has opened up and his eyes are noticing things for the first time...his little brain working overtime, turning thoughts inside and out. What a wonder life must be for him...


And as if to punctuate his toddlerhood....his first haircut by our favorite guy, Justin. Despite Sawyer's look of uncertainty, he did great.

Goodbye baby... hello little boy.

Andrea, this makes me so sad. I know this next stage of having the boys play together is exciting and fun, but saying goodbye is so hard to do. I know Asher is right around the corner and I am not ready for it!

Sawyer is such a sweetheart, and he loves to do "big boy" things like his big brother... I love my two boys so much. -JC

Wow! He does look like a little boy with that haircut! It's so much fun to watch them want to be just like their older brother. Chandler takes his role as big brother very seriously and is really catching on to watching what he says and does because he knows the other two are watching. We must be doing something right! Ian looks like he is a very sweet big brother too.

oh my god that's so sad. We've been feeling it a lot with Isabella for a while though. Every time I am reminded of it it's so nice to know we'll have another one in a few months:). The new haircut is adorable and that little Ian is such a doll!!
