Mr.Sawyer 1 year!

Mr. Sawyer is One!

And honestly? I'm having a really hard time with it. I am always stunned with how different everything has been between Asher and Sawyer. When Asher turned one, I was upset but it felt like a natural progression, and we were all ready for him to be a big brother. But with Sawyer, he still feels like such a baby.

One word to describe Sawyer it would be mercurial:
mer·cu·ri·al  [mer-kyoor-ee-uhl]
1. changeable; volatile; fickle; flighty; erratic: a mercurial nature.
2. animated; lively; sprightly; quick-witted.

He knows exactly what he wants, and he will let you know if he is not getting it. He is smart and stubborn, and will not allow himself to be distracted from what he really wants. This causes many tears because he likes to sneak in the bathroom to play in the toilet, climbing everything, and taking whatever Asher has.
He knows quite a few words but he will say them when he wants to, he doesn't play the 'Sawyer say mama' game. And he won't do any baby sign language unless its his choice, which most often leads to him doing a sign that he invented all on his own that we have figured means 'I want that, give it to'
But he will give kisses, high-fives, little bonks (head bump), and 'mugga-muggas' if asked... usually.

He is a big boy (100% for height) with a BIG personality.

He can be a little bit shy sometimes, but even when he's being shy he will show off his big smiles.

He loves to eat, and will eat almost anything. Most of the time his bad moods can be made better with just a little bit  (or a lot) of food.

He started walking at 11 months, and is always on the go! At the grocery store he hates being in the cart and insists on walking, he loves going to the park to climb & slide. He likes to chase Asher and try to do everything he does, they are definitely best friends.

He is a big sweetheart who loves cuddles and lot of one on one time. Which of course makes me have a lot of mommy guilt, that I just can't give him as much attention as he wants-or as much as I gave Asher as a baby.
