I am challenging myself to post a picture everyday for a year! It will be a fun way to watch the 2nd year of Sawyers life go by. The first year went by too fast.

Day 336: An iPhone Snaps Kind Of Day

I have been feeling really disorganized these last few days, so I decided to keep it simple today with some iphone shots rather than getting out my big DLSR camera. Unfortunately they are not sharp, and I really don't like posting blurry pictures, but today I am cutting myself some slack.

Sawyer has been wonderful lately, as always. He always brightens my day and gives me lots of smiles and loves. He has been learning tons of new words and it is so cute to hear his little husky boy voice. I love it!

Day 335: Lunch Sass

He looks like he was being sassy at lunch today, but he actually was really well behaved!

Day 334: Little Yard Worker

Grandpa and Grandma are visiting this weekend and so generously bought Sawyer some kid sized yard tools. Sawyer was totally into the shovel. He worked pretty hard out there and had a really great time. His little face is so cute, he takes his work seriously.

Day 333: Sneaky Sneaky Mama

It is no secret that Sawyer loves chips, he doesn't get them often, and when he does, he doesn't get many, but I wanted to find an alternative to his little junk food cravings. I had these freeze dried apples in our pantry from a while ago and let him try them a few weeks ago. Definitely a big hit, and now he is happy to eat them anytime! and he thinks they are chips!!!!! Score one for the Mama!

Day 332: Flip Flops

I stopped at Old Navy today and grabbed some summer clothes for our upcoming vacation and grabbed Sawyer these adorable little flip flops. He wasn't too sure at first, but then I showed him they were "like Mommy's" and he allowed me to put them on. He seemed fine with them for awhile, but then we took them off. I tried to put them back on later so Mike could see and that was a big fat no. Hopefully he can get used to them, if not, then I am glad I didn't buy him the $25 pair I had been eyeing.

Day 331: I Hope These Really Are Washable!

He sure loved coloring with markers though! He did have some colorful hands and his shirt wasn't 100% gray when he was finished. :)

Day 329: Playing 'Side

Sawyer love love loves playing outside, or 'side as he calls it. It is really cute because he gets this little hopeful look on his face and says "'side?" How can I resist? Doesn't he have a cool outfit on today? I love it. :)

Day 328: Warm Sunday

We spent a lot of time outside today, however I don't have any pictures! AHH! I do have some cute indoor ones though.

Day 327: Yummy Breakfast

As a treat this morning, I made cinnamon rolls. I made some last summer and he didn't want anything to do with them, so I was interested to see how he would react to these. They were a huge hit.

Day 326: "Ball"

Today after I picked Sawyer up from "school" we had to stop by the grocery store before we went home. He decided he did not want to get into the cart, and threw a crying yelling fit. Sigh. But all was forgotten when I told him we would get him a ball. And by ball, I meant piece of fruit. I decided on an orange because if it were an apple or a pear, he would bite into it and people would look at me funny. He LOVED the orange and kept holding it up and proclaiming "BALL!" It was cute. Except we forgot to pay for it since it was in the seat next to him. After all our stuff was bagged and we were leaving the store I noticed it and we had to turn around and pay for it. THEN, when we got home I told him to go upstairs (we have to walk up a flight of outdoor stairs to get into the front door since our house was built on a hill) so I could grab the groceries, usually he does this just fine, except for today, when he decided to throw his ball and it went rolling down the driveway and then down the street. Our street is on a hill as well so it really rolled down fast. He was yelling "OH NO! BALL! OH NO!" so off we went, running down the sidewalk trying to catch the orange that was careening down the gutter. We got it though, and he had a grand old time with it.

Day 325: Resting on a Suitcase

Mike has been gone since Tuesday (I think I mentioned it in an earlier post, I can't remember and I'm too lazy to check) so I have been doing some organizing, cleaning, etc just to keep busy. This afternoon I worked on our coat closet and we keep our suitcases in it. Sawyer thought it would be a fun thing to lay on, and periodically he would close his eyes and "snore." His fake snore is just about the funniest little thing he does. I think he learned it from Bubble Guppies.

Day 324: Love This Kid

I just love him, his giggle is so infectious, don't you just want to giggle look at these photos?

Day 323: Oooh A New Toy

I know he doesn't need any new toys, but Mike left today for a business trip so I couldn't resist breaking up the routine and going to Toys R Us this afternoon for a new toy. He loves it! (I knew he would)

Day 322: Always Busy

Sawyer pretty much runs around all day long. He has a lot of energy and we always joke that he is "busy" because he is constantly moving from one activity to another. I blame his "busy-ness" on this blurry picture.

Day 321: Double Fisting

Today he couldn't decide what he wanted, so he was taking sips from each, half juice/half water from one cup, and milk in the other. (The 2nd pics looks like he is annoyed that I always take pictures of him, haha)

Day 320: Goldfish Are Funny

Sawyer and I made a little trip to Target this afternoon, our favorite store. ;) On the way there I hear him giggling really hard and I glanced back quickly and couldn't figure out what was so funny. From what I could tell he was just eating his goldfish, but when we got to a stop light I looked back and realized he was crushing his goldfish into his lap. Oh yes, quite hilarious. 

(Sorry the first pic is kind of blurry, the iphone camera isn't always the best)

Day 319: Mommy's Glasses

Why is it that the things he loves to play with are the things I don't want him to have? I know I'm not alone in this.

Day 315: Outside Time

Since the weather has been a somewhat nice lately, Sawyer has really been loving getting outside and just running around. Today he had a blast with one of his favs, the big blue bouncy ball.
