Is it sleeping in if you were up all night?

Here it is 8:54 in the morning and I am just crawling out of bed, and Sawyer is still sleeping!
As I was getting up I was trying to remember the last time I slept this long? My next thought was is it really sleeping in if you were up all night?

Sawyer had a HORRIBLE night! At 1:04 he started crying, I gave him 15 minutes and went to check on him. He seemed to still be asleep, I rubbed his back til he stopped crying and went back to bed. Five minutes later he started again. 15 minutes pass and I went back in, same thing, back rub, back to bed for me. Five minutes later...crying. This went on for almost an hour. Finally I just brought him into bed with me. This worked for almost 20 minutes. He did not like being in the bed with us, so Mark put him back in his bed. He was good there for all of five minutes!
At this point everything for me became a blur since I was just so tired! I do remember him opening his door and looking out than running back into bed numerous times, me trying to put him in our a bed a couple times and him up playing for awhile. I guess he was just not tired.
Finally around 4:30 I went into his room and I held him for awhile and told him he really needed to go night night. I gave him kisses, laid him down, and rubbed his back. He fell asleep and is still asleep right now!

The only thing I can think of was he just had too much stimulation during the day. We had some other kids over most of the day, he got no nap, and than we went to some friends house.
So today we are going to spend a nice quiet day at home!

Friday Stuff!

Mark is home today so he went with us to the flip zone so I got to take some photos! I am really lovin this class! Sawyer gets to run around and play and have so much fun, and at the same learn things!
Sawyer has done very good job with his new bed! He slept perfectly the last two nights! We had a few issues today with the his naptime but we worked thru it!
That is it for now!

A Big Night!

Tonight Sawyer will not be sleeping in a crib!

We FINALLY found him a fire truck toddler bed!

He really liked playing with it when we put it up and was not at all upset when we took the crib to the basement...he even helped us carry it!

We just put him to bed and so far I have not heard we will see how his first night goes in his new bed! Im kinda bummed! that I will not be here when he wakes up in the morning, I will be at work! I guess we did not pick a good night to start!
I took some other photos of his room since we finally got some decorations up! I bought the letters for his name and added the painted wood shapes that I got at Hobby Lobby, I think it turned out cute! We also got some wall stick-ons that match his bedding we just got! All we need is some curtains and a shelf and his room will be done!

Weekend Review...

Friday started with a class at the Flip Zone! It was a blast! Sawyer ran around like a crazy man!

Friday night after Sawyer went to bed I went to the neighbors house for a few drinks!

Saturday we hung out around the house and played outside (since it was such an awesome day out) til Mark came home than all three of us went to the neighbors house again for some more drinks! We let Sawyer stup about an hour over his bedtime before Mark took home and put him down for the night...I stayed out and played til sometime in the middle of the night! My neighbors are so much fun, I love to hang out with them!

This morning after Sawyer's nap we took him to the park for awhile! We played on all the equipment, but he liked the slide the best!

We than headed over to Joel and Cassie's, we practiced saying their names the entire ride over, he must have said each 10 times easily, but of course when we get there he would not say Cassie! He kept saying Amy!

We went grocery shopping and when we got home Chris and Klo were waiting in the driveway for us..with chocolate cupcakes!! What a nice surprise! We hung out with them for awhile and had yummy BLCT's for dinner!

Today is going to be a long day! Mark is at the track so I have to take Sawyer to day care...which only sucks b/c she is in Blue Springs and I work in Lee's Summit. So I have to wake him at 545 to get him there and me to work by 630! Than I do not get off til 5! To make it an even worse day, the other assistant at my office wont be there, so I have to do alot more work!
It is probably just going to be a long crappy day!

A New Bed!

Today we finally got a new bed! Since we moved we have had our box springs and mattress just sitting on the floor!

Mark got it all set up and it hit me that this bed is a different size and we had no sheets, so I went off to shop!

I was not impressed with my selections, I went to Bed Bath & Beyond, Target and Kohl's...I ended up back at BB&B and got one of there bed in a bags...that will have to do for now!

We still need a dresser so I will be on the hunt for that!

Sawyer is always trying to help. While Mark was taking the old mattress out, he of course was right there helping!
I can not say enough how much I absolutely adore that boy!

A Baby Shower!

Today we had Amy's baby shower! I went completely untraditional with the colors being pink and brown!
I had decided for food I wanted to do different kinds of kabobs! We had a pizza, cheese and sausage, mexican, fruit, and strawberry shortcake kabobs! Just to make them festive we (and when I say "we" I mean Mark) cut some of the ingredients out with these cute little animal shapes! Of course the shower would not be complete with out some Misty cupcakes (they are the best in the entire world)!! We had chocolate and white!
Amy got lots of very girlie things! The blanket she is holding is one of the last blankets my Grandma crochet before her hands got to weak...she is lucky that it is girl colors otherwise it would have been mine! She also got a bassinet, a baby bath, lots of blankets, clothes, bottles and other baby stuff!
I think it turned out nice and I hope everyone else enjoyed themselves!

Sawyer is such a big helper around the house!

He will take his plate when he is done and put it in the sink, put his dirty clothes in the hamper in his closet,

and he even helps with the laundry! If Iput the wet clothes on the door he pushes them in for me and when they are dry he pulls them out...even if it means climbing into the dryer!

I found out today that Sawyer can now say sentences!

He said "I want a bite!" and " I want to go bye-bye!

It was super cute and I was so surprised and excited to hear it...except for the second sentence! This one he decided to announce very loudly in Hobby Lobby...over and over again! So as I praised him and encouraged him to use his words, while we also discussed using inside voices!

The toy of choice today was the legos! He has this little wagon to keep them in, so when he was not pulling that, or dumping them all over the floor, or building things, he was climbing into the wagon!

Sunday Night Blues!

I have to go back to work tomorrow, this is going to be rough after having a week off! It does not help thinking about how incredibly busy we are going to be since the Dr. has not been there for a week either!

I did have an awesome week off! I do not think I cleaned anything and I did not do any laundry but I did spend a lot of time with my Sawyerbaby! We played, laughed, sang, danced and got in the pool! We hung out with his girl cousins, did a little shopping, went out to lunch and had friends over! He just gets to be more fun everyday! He is learning so much too! He really is just a rockstar kid..and I am so happy that he is mine!
I did finally get my ribbon organized! It is all bagged and on the day I will take a photo for you!
We also got a few things done in the house! We got a ceiling fan for the kitchen, took the mirror down from above the fireplace, got some decorations on the wall and hung new lights...again maybe one day I will take a picture!
That is it for now...I must get to bed!
