I know Christmas isn’t just about the presents, but I do LOVE Christmas shopping. For my kids, for my husband, for the mail man. I just love trying to find someone the perfect gift, the gift they need but don’t even know it. I’ve had so much fun deciding what to get my boys for Christmas this year, and made up a fun inspiration board with my favorites for Sawyer this year. He isn’t getting all these things, but any of these would make for a happy happy Christmas morning. Sources for all the items are listed below.
I can’t believe how big Sawyer has gotten. Every time I turn around, I feel like I’m looking at a grown boy. I never thought I’d get so worried about getting older so young, but I just want to stop time. We’re at a pretty good place right now- both boys are sleeping well and Sawyer is potty trained completely finally. What more could you ask for, right? Here is Sawyer in his church outfit from Sunday, outfit details below!
I haven’t post a new blog in a month. I didn’t mean to, it just kind of happened.
In the last month, we and most of our extended family has had the flu and an awful cold, Sawyer had the flu twice. Rhett has been to the E.R., Sawyer had to have an outpatient surgery; there have been ear infections and a run of thrush. Brandon’s sister and her family came to visit, as did two of my brother’s and their families and my sister and her family. We’ve gone to the lake three times, celebrated lots of people’s birthdays, celebrated the fourth of July, Brandon started a new job, I’ve gone back to doing photo shoots, Rhett has more than doubled his birth weight, and he went to his first concert.
I’ve missed blogging, but we have been busy busy just living and loving life.
If Sawyer could just stay this size for a few months I would love it. He’s just so perfect and cute, and I am in love with this outfit he is wearing. I love putting him in moccasins and got the cutest Navajo print ones from Bens Favorite Things on Instagram (check them out!). It’s so hard to find boy clothes that are cute, and not covered in logos. This is the perfect toddler outfit to me.
We had the best Labor Day weekend at the lake, and I decided to go the entire weekend camera free, so no pictures, sorry! So many times when I have my camera I feel like I have to take so many pictures and capture all the moments, and while it killed me a few times not to have it, it was so nice to just leave the phone and camera at home and get away for the weekend. We camped out on an island in the middle of a big lake in Alabama with Brandon’s family, it was so much fun. My parents and some of our friends were also out there this weekend so it was fun to see everybody and hop boats and spend time with so many people we love. Labor Day weekend always feels like a bitter sweet goodbye to summer for me.
