Fun Times in Missouri

Well we made it to Missouri without incident on Friday. Sawyer did an awesome job being in the car, and was really only fussy for the last couple of miles (really...I am not kidding). I need to give props to Sarah because she did a great job moving between the front and back seats keeping me awake and Sawyer occupied.

We have spent the last couple of days lounging around my parents house, reading, watching soccer, playing golf and just generally relaxing. We were able to take in a movie on Sunday night and I would say that we both really enjoyed "The Incredible Hulk", it was better then the similarly named move that came out in 2003.

We are packed and ready to go out to the lake tomorrow and then we are going to spend a week enjoying lake activities as well as more relaxing with family. My uncle John and aunt Carol are already here, and more of my dad's family will be trickling in over the weekend. Check back for more pics and posts in the next couple of days.

Sawyer's Stats

Sawyer had his four month check-up yesterday. He weighed in at 17 lbs 2 oz and 26 1/4 inches long! He came down with a cold on Sunday, so the shots he got during his appointment only magnified how miserable he was feeling. He was really fussy and cried more than we've ever heard him cry. He seems to be feeling a bit better today. We're hoping he's back to his laughing and smiling ways by the time we leave for vacation, if not, the drive could be very interesting!

Summer Movies

The summer movie season has started! It will be a bit more difficult this year with Sawyer to get all our movie watching in, but we've already been able to get in two of this summer's most anticipated releases!

On May 31, bright and early, I met my BFFs, (Best Friend Forever, Minor likes to call my girlfriends this!) at the Waterloo Ice House for a great breakfast before we headed off to see Sex and the City. If you're a fan of the series, you're going to love every minute of the movie! It was a great morning, spent with some of my closest girlfriends.

That same evening after dinner, Minor went to Indiana Jones with some of our friends. He enjoyed it and said it was a pretty good summer movie. I guess he needs to see a few more movies before he knows where this one ranks in his best of summer list.

We're hoping to catch a movie or two during our upcoming road trip, as we're thinking grandparents may love some "quality time" with Sawyer! :) Speaking of the grandparents, here are some recent photos of the little comet, just for you! We know a post without pictures of him is not a post you like, so here are some pics just for you! We're really looking forward to our upcoming visits!

Sawyer's New Trick! He discovered his toes at the grocery store on Memorial Day. He's often trying and quite successful at getting them into his mouth.

Sawyer enjoys his Jump & Go! At the moment he's most interested in the toys in front of him, but I don't think it will be long before he figures out he can make himself move in this.

Sawyer's ready for our lake house vacation! He actually likes wearing hats at the moment, so we continue to encourage this, especially with the Texas sun!

Sawyer's begun reaching out to touch Sabine when she is near him. Sabine continues to be very patient with Sawyer and is always willing, much to my dismay, to give him lots of kisses.

Sawyer's 4 months old! Such a big boy!

Sawyer's Exersaucer...Daddy likes to call this toy ADHD Playground!

Daddy had to put the Exersaucer together, which took some time. Actually, I should of taken a picture or two of that event! :) Sawyer loves to watch the lights light up. He's amazed every time he pulls the strings that make the lights go.
