A few weeks ago (who am I kidding, it's almost two months ago now) Sawyer had her preschool graduation. I'm using the term graduation very loosely here as she's got another year of p-to the-reschool coming up. This year we went to a cute little in home joy-schoolish preschool at Ms.Cynthia's in the next ward over. It was just Tuesdays & Thursdays for two hours in the morning. Sawyer's friend Taylee Anderson was also in the class & drove with us everyday.
At graduation she we got the portfolio of all the art & little projects that Sawyer had done over the year, which was great, to have it organized, because knowing me, they would all be in the city dump by now if she'd have brought them home everyday. I'm that sucky of a mom/in HATE with clutter & storing things.

(that's my new trendy phrase I've just made up. "I'm in hate with...". You heard it here first.)

Anyway, here she is, walking at her graduation ceremony, ready to proudly present her mother with her "protefrorio."

Newest family member

Ok things have been a little nuts around here. Not only a new baby, but also another new member of the household, my niece, Cydney has come to live with us. We initially were just kind of joking, the beauty school she wants to go to is around the corner from our house & we have a largely uninhabitated basement...8 days later she moved in! She's working at Advanced Title with(ish) Matt, and it's been awesome to have her & get to know her better.

Sawyer, of course ADORES her & can't wait for her to come home every night, so that she can torment her, which Cyd puts up with sooo well. I think she must be missing her six little brothers, there's no other explaination for her limitless patience.

I thought it would be a fairly big adjustment, but it's been nothing but great. She helps me with the dishes & cleans up after herself, plays with my kids & puts up with Matt's jokes. A completely pleasant change.

Lame blog

My blog is lame lately. This is why.

But, seriously, have you ever seen a cuter guy in a cuter outfit? I think I need to buy it in every size available. Since he's almost grown out of all his 0-3 month stuff anyway. Those pearl buttons kill me!
