Home Across the Blue Ridge Mountains

The last weekend in July, Sawyer and I went to visit some friends in Asheville. Our friend Adrienne and her son Kaori also came to join us. Greg and Mary have a beautiful home on the top of a mountain with a rocking chair front porch and views that make it hard to leave. Sawyer did great even with our busy schedule. There was an annual festival happening and we went downtown for some fun. There was lots of catching up, playing with the boys and porch sitting. It was a great trip. 

Boys of Summer

Clearly I am behind on the blog. We've been taking lots of pictures but with all the travel and school and increase in work, I haven't been able to take the time to do more posts. So there will be a bunch at once. Here are some pictures from our summer adventures. 

 We managed to spend some time with my sister's family this summer. They came to stay and I watched all three boys while my sister and sister-in-law went to a wedding. It was an adventure!

I Like To Eat, Eat, Eat...

We went to Atlanta over the Fourth of July break because Carey had a four day pass. We thought it would be a good time to start Sawyer on solid foods. He's been very interested in what others are eating for about a month now. He will follow my fork or spoon from the plate to my mouth and has tried to grab for it several times now. We decided to start him straight on vegetables as current wisdom is trending away from starting with rice cereal. Especially for breast fed babies. The night before we left I pureed some carrots and when Carey got to Atlanta he fed Sawyer while I took pictures. It was hysterical. Sawyer was SO excited, until he got the carrots in his mouth. Then he wasn't so sure. :)

He REALLY wanted the spoon and kept grabbing for it as it went towards his mouth. Clearly he ended up wearing more of it than he ate. But we kept trying. 

5, 6, Pick Up Sticks

Happy 6 Months Sawyer! •It's been a whole half a year since you were born! •You still won't smile for these photos •You like to sit up way more than lay down, although you roll over and flail your arms and legs like you are swimming while trying to get upright •You do this half cough/half laugh when you are excited about something •You are interacting so much and it is so fun! •You've been drooling like crazy and gnawing on everything you can get your hands on but you still have no teeth
