We are getting our daily grind on today….making a dent in the laundry and minding the home where Lilah and I spent some time cleaning her play room and then made beds eh hmmmmm .we.made.beds. Que the round of applause, please! Gigi came down to play and had coffee later in the morning. Delilah enjoyed the one-on-one play sesh with Gigi on her jumpy jump while showing off her dancing skills to her favorite song, Springsteen. If you haven’t noticed we are totally owning Wednesday!
Sawyer is now 6 months old and growing like a weed. Seriously, where did my little newborn go? He is eighteen pounds of pure happy and is in love with all things food and play. He is still exclusively nursing and has little interest in the bottle; however, we did have a break through last week when the hubby and I went out for a date night. Our little dude finally took an 8 ounce bottle sending him into a deep sleep trance that resulted in a solid eight hours in his comfy dockatot. He and his sister were fast asleep when we got home and although the hubby and I had a super fun night filled with yummy food and cocktails, we both missed giving them their bedtime hugs and kisses….the hubby was a tad bit more accepting of missing our bedtime ritual than I.
Sawyer has just about mastered sitting up on his own. His favorite pastime is to sit up with the boppy pillow behind him on the floor with his sissy. He loves to play with his dump truck and watch sissy play with her shopkins and barbies. Sawyer is always down for some play time in his entertainment saucer and a good episode of Barney and Friends. He is obsessed with Barney and goes into an excited tizzy when he sees that purple dinosaur.
In between play time he prefers to be chowing down on anything edible. He shows extra smiles for strawberry yogurt, carrots, pears and anything savory with chicken. He houses puffs and yogurt bites and more recently was introduced to diced avocado and scrambled eggs, he’s a vacuum, people! He is gumming all the soft finger foods like a pro and even picked up a few of the puffs and fed himself today, sigh. I really am so excited about this milestone but secretly I wish he would just stay his 6 month mama-lovin’ self forever.
I was asked last week if we are going to have a third, and I really didn’t have an answer. I just don’t know. We love having a baby in our home and I adore being a mommy, so perhaps….but then I remember how uncomfortable pregnancy is for me, especially at the end, and I think we have been blessed with two healthy babies and our family is perfect as is. Honestly, the hubby and I both flip flop and we haven’t thought that far out, so maybe. Right now we are enjoying and trying to savor Sawyer’s short window that we call the “baby phase” because we will blink and he will be five, you mamas know the deal!
