All Smiles!

Sawyer has been all smiles lately!  It is so fun to go pick him up out of his crib in the morning and have him give me a huge smile.  He also recently learned he has a tongue and LOVES to play with it.  He is so dang cute!

He also is learning how to use his arms a little better.  He is constantly trying to bring them together or to his face to put in his mouth.

I can never resist taking pictures of him sleeping.  He is so precious!  He even sleeps like his daddy with his hands behind his head.

I think he is getting mad at me for taking so many pictures, he looks like he is ready to punch someone! :)

He is getting so big!  This picture of him is on his 2 month birthday, quite a difference from when we brought him home from the hospital!

Two months of catching up

So along with being new parents and having BOTH are computers break down, we are a little late on the updates.  It's been a month and a half since we have posted anything, so needless to say, we have a lot to cover.
Sawyer is now 2 months old!  I can't believe it!  He is growing so fast and getting so big.  I was a bit of a slacker of a mother and forgot to call to make his 2 month appointment, so it isn't until next week.  We are excited to see what his new weight and height will be, but I am sure he won't mind having to wait a little longer to get those dreaded shots. 
So let me back up a little...
Sawyer still loves his bath times.  I have a funny story about baths!  After his second or third bath I was drying Sawyer off while he laid on the couch wrapped up in his towel.  All of the sudden I felt something wet dripping on my foot!  I looked down and this is what I found...

He managed to pee right on my leg.  Funny thing is, he shot me right in the leg without dripping any on the floor or the couch or anywhere else.  This kid has good aim!

Last year Tyler and I had so much fun at the fair, we had to go again this year.  Sawyer was only a few weeks old, but we decided that having a baby shouldn't stop us from getting out and having fun!  So we headed down to Pueblo with my two brothers, sister-in-law, two nephews and my brothers girlfriend.  It was definately a different experience having a newborn, however, we found that Sawyer is not a fan of the Ferris Wheel, but he sure loves rollercoasters! Unfortunately my camera batteries died shortly after we got there, but we did get a few pictures on the way down. 

This is Sawyer's cousin Zach, checking him out and meeting him for the first time.  His other cousin Logan is in the front seat checking him out too.

On the bus, he was startled in his sleep, and this was the result.  He stayed like this for a minute or so.  It was pretty funny. (Maybe he was conducting an orchestra in his sleep)

Then when Sawyer was almost six weeks old, we decided to take him for his first MLB game. We went to see the Rockies play in Denver. He did great and enjoyed every second of it!

When he got home, he was exaughsted!  I had to get a better picture of his cute little baseball pj's too

We have had so much fun watching him grow. He is so fun to have around.  Being parents has been so worth all the sleepless nights.  We love him so much!

Sawyer's first photo shoot

At three weeks old we took Sawyer to get his first professional pictures done.  Here are a few of our favorites.

Such a happy family!
