This month was a big month for our family. With the help of Aunt Christie, we drove 33 hours (4 days) from Indiana to California. Sweet little Sawyer slept the entire way and did amazing at night in the hotels. He’s already shaping up to be a ‘go with the flow’ kind of kid just like his brother. We reunited with daddy after being apart for 2 and a half weeks.
My babies seem to grow faster then most babies and Sawyer even more so then Sebastian (by a lot). At 6 weeks old I had to pack up most of his 3 month clothes and start putting 6 months clothes on him. We just recreated a photo of Sebastian in his Tigger sleeper and looking at the date I realized Sebastian was 6 months when he when he wore it and Sawyer is 4 months younger! He’s also already in size 2 diapers. I wonder how tall he will be as an adult!
With Sebastian, I went back to work at 9 weeks and am so happy I get to stay home with my guys! Leaving Sebastian to go back to work was so hard and now I don’t have to leave them until hopefully kindergarten. So far I have loved being a stay at home mom.
For me, the weight is coming off a lot slower then last time. With Sebastian I was already down to pre-pregnancy weight by now. I still have about 15 pounds on me and nursing makes me so hungry so I’ve been eating a lot. I’m sure all the walking I’m doing in the city and caring for two boys, the weight will come off eventually. No rush, we are all healthy and that’s all that matters right now.
Stats: 14 pounds 1 ounce 24 3/4 inches long. Big boy!!
Likes: Looking at mommy, playing with daddy, playing on his play mat, sitting in his swing, going for walks in the carrier
Dislikes: I can’t really think of anything he doesn’t like.
Nicknames: “little brudder” (how Sebastian says brother), “Soy Sauce”, “Little man”
Firsts: First trip to California and San Francisco. First time staying in a hotel. Met Aunt Christie, Aunt Jennie, Uncle Peter and cousin Adelaide.
Milestones: Smiling (first social smile 4 weeks 1 day), hitting toys on the play mat, cooing, tracking
Sleep: Sawyer goes to sleep anytime between 10:30-12:00 and sleeps for about 6-7 hours, wakes up to eat and goes back to sleep for a couple hours.
Here’s a flash back to Sebastian at 2 months.
