A Sawyer Post

This sweet, little girl. These past 9 months have been heavenly! 

She's been sleeping through the night since she was 4 months - right when we started her on solids. She's in bed by 7 and doesn't wake up until 7/8. Maybe she does and I just don't know it! Since school has started and I've been heading upstairs at 6am I'll hear her talking away. Maybe she is just super patient!! She is a great nap taker too. A good 2.5 hour one in the morning and at least 3 hours in the afternoon. 

 She has been such a fun baby! She is all over the place! My other kids took their time doing things, but not her. There are rooms to explore and food to eat off the floor. Haha! We have our very own puppy! We love it when she does this with her binkie. It's even more funny looking when she sticks her tongue out! 

Her first time sitting -  5 months. She's been a rolling maniac since she was 1.5 months!

6 month photo shoot and she did not want to cooperate! 

She started crawling at 6 months. Slow down baby!!

And immediately right after she started crawling she figured out how to pull herself up to the couch!

Look at those pudgy fingers! I love squishy baby hands!
She is so happy and just waits for someone to look at her so that she can unleash her smile and maybe do her excited screech!

We switched over to the bottle at 7 months. Sad day for me. 

Today was her 9 month check up. It's not fair that time goes so quickly! Isn't she pretty?

Growth record:

At birth: 9 lbs 8 oz 20 inches long
2 weeks: 10 lbs 5 oz 21.5 inches long
2 months: 12 lbs 10.5 oz 24.5 inches long
4 months: I've gotta find my paper!
6 months: I've gotta find my paper!
9 months: 18 lbs 10 oz 28.3 inches long.

At 9 months she waves, dances to music, has ZERO teeth, loves to eat everything but green beans or any bean for that matter, loves her family - she gets super excited to see Nathan and the kids after they've been gone, tries crawling up the stairs (we've had one fall), has had 2 ear infections but other than that she's been very healthy. We all love her so much!

Last Day of School!!

During the last week of school we were smack in the middle of moving. The girls had fun sleeping in their clothes and making tents out of their mattresses!

 Keslie with her Kindergarten teacher - Mrs. Manske
 Anika with her 2nd grade teacher - Mrs. Ingram

During that last week of school I went and ate lunch with Kes. This is the board that has a picture of her and the ONE other person in the school that got enough paws to earn recognition! Isn't she awesome? 

We were so excited for summer to start and to not have any schedule to follow. To sleep in, play "stories" all day, swim, vacation, and stay up late! =)
