Dear Sawyer Dylan (8 Months)

Dear Sawyer Dylan,
This past month you have constantly been on the move!  I'm sure you won't be slowing down anytime soon which is fun to know.

Here are a couple of the things you have amazed me and your daddy by doing this past month:

  • You have started crawling rather quickly, especially to things that you want to investigate.
  • You also love pulling yourself up on things...which was scary when you first started doing it because you didn't really master getting back down on to the ground until quite a bit would frequently pull yourself up on to something like our coffee table and then fall down and hit your head, resulting in loud crying for a minute or two...thankfully you have figured out how to get back down recently.
  • You have already figured out how to climb stairs.  One day at Grandma and Grandpa Keller's you climbed from the living room to the middle of the stairs before I noticed what you were up to and then continued your climb to the top of the stairs under my watchful eye in no time!  This meant a new baby gate was quickly purchased and installed at our house!
  • You are teething which means you haven't been sleeping as well as you once were...this means waking up at various times, anywhere between 11:30 PM and 2 AM and then waking up for the day at 6:30 AM.  Mommy missed the days when you would sleep until 7:30 AM or 8 AM.
  • You continue to giggle and smile which always puts a big smile on mommy and daddy's face!
  • You celebrated your first Valentine's Day in Denver with auntie Mac in Denver (mommy and you could our first road trip just the two of us while daddy was in Portland)
  • You visited Breckenridge for the first time!
Thank you for being the cutest baby on earth and for letting us continue to learn with you on a daily basis.

Love you,
