Sawyer is 13 Months Old



It's so crazy that one year has already come and gone.  I can't believe that my baby is not officially a "baby" anymore (of course she will always be my baby).  1 year and 1 month..... so weird.  Where has the time gone?  Unfortunately today she is not feeling very good.  She is running a temperature and teething.  Yuck. {Obviously no picture from today because she is not in a camera mood.  The one from above will have to do.  It was taken last week.}

Darling little love:

- You are not walking yet.  I know it will happen any day now though.  You are furniture walking, and you can balance standing up.  You don't seem to have any confidence in yourself that you can stand by yourself for too  long.  At church the other day you did take one baby little step before you squatted down making sure not to have to balance for too long.
- You have your four front teeth on top and bottom and on the bottom right you cut a new back tooth a few days ago.  You have three more between the top and bottom that are trying to come through.  It appears that you are in quit some pain.  Poor girl.
- A week ago we weaned you from your pacifier and you've done great!  (Minus getting sick the past few days.)  I've been so impressed with how you have just fallen asleep all on your own without having to have the pacifier.  It's just been a little bit more difficult to get you back to sleep if you wake up in the middle of your nap-- but you are getting there.  I was worried you would start sucking your thumb, but so far you haven't-- yeah!  To be honest I thought that it would have been a more difficult process with you because you were so attached to it.
- We are in the middle of weaning you from breastfeeding.  We are down to one feeding a day.  You are doing great, and haven't seemed to notice or mind that your not taking breastmilk as frequently.
- Speaking of milk- you've transitioned great into drinking whole milk-- as long as it has a little Ovaltine in it to sweeten it up some.  :)
- You eat pretty much everything that we do,  but you have an opinion about what it is.  You don't like avocados for sure, and several other things, but I can't think off the top of my head. :)
- You certainly understand the word "no" and don't like it when we use it in regards to something you are doing.  You quickly stop when we say "no."  You seem like so far you are one who will want to please easily.
-  You are so laid back and chill.  You don't seem to get frustrated or upset easily.
- You are pretty independent.  You play by yourself great!
- You are wearing 12 month clothing.
- Your curls seem to get looser and looser the more your hair grows out.  If we don't assist your curls at all then when your hair drys it appears to be straight with a little wave to it.... kinda like the best of both worlds.
- You take 2 naps a day.  About 2 hours each.
- You are starting to recognize signing now. You have started signing "done" and "more" but I don't think you quite understand what they mean yet.

My sweet little girl, you are just so precious.  You have been so much fun & I have just loved watching your little personality develop.  You are a joy to be around & I still love how much you like to cuddle with me.  Your little smile is to die for!  Thank you for being such a sweet little baby girl.  I love you more than words can say.  My heart truly is crazy for you.
