Sawyer is just entering that stage where you need to write down every single thing that comes out of her mouth because it's just too funny! I love her observations on life & especially her sassiness. I'm sure I'll hate it when she's 13, but right now I love seeing her little personality develop. I honestly can't say that I understand "baby-people". You know, the ones who want their infants to just stop growing, they want to savor every baby thing. I have never been that way, I love seeing Sawyer learn & grow & half the time I just sit back & let her figure things out herself because I simply want to see how she figures things out. She's really so smart, I'm not even biased at all. Baby-people are crazy anyway, those first six months are pretty much my own personal hell, what with all the sleep-deprivation. Hopefully I'll be better about it the next time around.
Anyway, this week she has come up with some zingers, and since I have that whole tapeworm problem, I can't remember but two of them.
1) On Wednesday I was trying to get Sawyer to climb up into the car and she was trying to set the world's record for Most Effective Dawdling by a Two (almost three) Year Old. Anyway, I won't say I didn't have a "tone" when I said "come on Sawyer, please climb up into the car!" To which she replied "okaaay, Mom! Don't freak out!" Seriously. I laughed sooooo hard! I think she learned that phrase from her dad. It certainly wasn't me.
2) We are staying at Becky (Matt's sister) & Craig's this week to watch their kids while they are in Russia. Pretty much the greatest job ever, these kids are all so cool & are so kind to Sawyer. Anyway, we were all lounging on Becky & Craig's bed when Caroline asked Sawyer to go help her make some Orange Julius which, of course, she wanted to do. She crawled across Matt to get off the bed, who decided that she's just the perfect weight for some chest presses. She got all huffy about being delayed & said "DAD! I have no time for this!"
I cannot imagine a cooler kid. I just love her to pieces. As my good buddy Jill said on Monday, "she is just full of joy." Everything is so awesome to her. If I whisper anything to her, act like it's a big secret, no matter what I say, she'll squeal with delight! I love you, Boom-Boom!
