Pumpkins and the Pig Lung

It has been an eventful week in the Smith house. Steve, Sawyer and I went and picked out two huge pumkins that Steve is feeling very ambitious about. I am glad he is, I am not sure this is a project I would be very patient with. In addition, Sawyer has contracted H1N1 at daycare and on Sunday began spiking scary high fevers. :( It was a long week folks. Sawyer is really a sweetie pie, even when he is feeling so miserable. A perk for me is that he has been extra snuggly. This is also a challenge and my house is a manifestation of all that is dirty and cluttered right now. It is not easy to do anything with a 1 1/2 year old stuck to your side.

I was sad that Sawyer missed his Halloween party at daycare but went and picked up his handmade sheriff shirt to try on anyway. He is feeling better so he should get a chance to sport it on Halloween too. Isn't this photo priceless?! Thanks Grammy for the most adorable halloween costume!

Sawyer also accomplished a very impressive feat by climbing into his high chair unsupervised and unassisted... ahem, Steve! Look how proud he was when mommy got home and caught him!

Finally, look at these finished pumpkins.
They are so cool! Mommy kept saying so and so did Sawyer. He was very impressed and just stared at the lit up pumpkins for the longest time. Way to go Steve, this is why you are Sawyer's hero.

Sawyer is 1 and a half years old!

We are lucky our boy is a good eater. It seems that he will try just about anything. He even enjoys his daddy's chili. We have found that if there is something he is not immediately interested in trying if we find something for him to dip it in he will give it a chance. He loves to say, "Dip dip dip!"

Sawyer has started to really enjoy brushing those teeth. When I ask him if it is time to brush his teeth he starts running toward the bathroom saying teeth while pointing into his mouth. It is so sweet!

I just couldn't help myself, I had to take a picture documenting Sawyer's sleep habits. When it is time to go to sleep at night he lays down with his lion stuffed under one arm and his doggy under the other. If he doesn't like the way I cover him with his blanket he sits up and hands the blanket to me so I can try again. :) This is what he looks like the next morning with his buddies still in place.

Sawyer is loving to make us laugh. Today he was using his mouth to suck a little orange cup to his lips like a beak. He would laugh and I would laugh, we were both just rolling. Also just for giggles I love encouraging him to jump. Boy does he work hard to almost get up off of the ground. Sooooo sweet!

17 Months Late Late Late Late Late!

Sawyer is more and more adventurous all of the time. He is willing to try anything that he sees anyone else try first. If mommy is cooking, Sawyer is cooking too. If Leila goes for a run on the couch, Sawyer is right behind her and giggling like crazy. It is such a sweet time, watching him try everything out and starting to talk more and more. If only we could understand him!
Sink bubbles are a fine substitute for outside bubbles when it is time to make supper.
