One month

Sawyer,

You are one month old. I cannot believe how quickly time has flown by. I am at home with you and enjoying every minute of it. Most days we take walks, watch tv, read, run errands, do laundry, clean and relax.  You nap....a LOT! Some days I spend hours in a chair just holding and staring at you.You have already grown so much and there are clothes that no longer fit. You have amazing head/neck control for your age and each week you have more and more awake times.  When you are awake, you are very alert, your eyes are open and you check out everything, especially lights and fans. You make this face, your dad and I call "the Bill Cosby" when you are waking up, it's my favorite. I can't wait to watch you grow and see your personality come out but at the same time I want to keep you a baby forever.

You are eating well, every 3 hours. You sleep a lot. You have a witching hour (8:00am-11:00am and 5:00pm-7:00pm) when you are unhappy and nothing helps, its not everyday. You sleep on walks and in the car but as you get older you tend to be more alert during those activities. You don't mind the bath but are not always a fan of being changed. You have peed on me and your dad and last night your dad got more than he bargained for when holding you (your third blowout in 3 days).  You don't mind the pups barks or kisses.

I could go on and on.....we love you so much!

Love,
Mom

Weekend review

This weekend we had a lot to celebrate. Mike (brother) graduating from his masters program, mother's day and my birthday (31). Our weekend started on Thursday night when Bugs and Izzie spent the night. Kelly flew in early on Friday morning and after picking her up from the airport we (Bugs, Kel, Sawyer and I) all headed over to St. Patricks for show and tell (we were the show), the kids loved us! They were all able to come over and look at Sawyer and ask us questions, things they wanted to know: where we were born, where we we baptised, how old are we, etc. We then met up with P at the mall and had eye treatments at the Estee Lauder counter (she had a coupon). Mike (BIL) arrived around 5:30pm and we picked him up from airport before heading to dinner at Portofinos.

Saturday we got mani/pedis, took a walk, relaxed and all had dinner at our house, the boys golfed and Bugs went to Beer, Bourben and BBQ. On Sunday, Mark made us all breakfast and we relaxed at home until late afternoon and then all headed over to P & B's for dinner. We had some extra "family" at dinner, Bugs' roommate Megan (we share a birthday), Chris and Leslie (Mike's roommate).

It was so great seeing Kel and Mike interact with Sawyer, they are going to be GREAT parents.  We are all so excited for the arrival of Baby Adams in July.

Special Visitor

My best friend, Meredith came to visit last weekend. She arrived on Saturday afternoon and left on Monday morning. We relaxed, we ate, we drank (wine, yum!), we ran errands, we watched movies, and she held and loved all over Sawyer. We determined the last visit we had that was just the two of us was in October 2011, when I went to Mount Pleasant for her baby shower.

As we get older and our lives evolve (jobs, husbands, babies) we don't have as much time to spend together and just relax. We both always say we wish we lived in the same city because she is the only friend I feel like I could call and ask to come sit on my couch while I clean my house, etc.

Miss her already.
