self-gratuitous grandbaby post . . .

My dear daughter-in-law went back to working from the office yesterday. She'd been working from home, and was loving being able to both work and be a stay-at-home mommy. But her employer wanted her back on site, so yesterday was the first day. Since I don't work on Mondays, I jumped at the chance to help her out and spend some precious time with my darling grandbaby!

Unfortunately, I had an appointment yesterday morning, too, but Grandpa came over and helped me out for a bit. Sawyer loves spending time with his grandpa -- they read the Sunday paper together!

We did have fun yesterday! Sawyer amused himself while I put Crock Pot Beef together in the crock pot. I figured Mondays would now be a great day to do a crock pot meal, since all my favorite crock recipes feed 6-8 -- too much for just Todd and me -- and then Sawyer's mommy wouldn't have to worry about dinner! A win-win situation!

He's still constantly got something in his mouth . . .

And he's found out that his pacifier doubles as a teething toy. He can fit the WHOLE thing in his mouth. Kim told me she'd looked over at him the other day and he smiled at her . . . it was a bright, white smile, like he had a mouth full of teeth. It was the pacifier! LOL! He's such a ham!

I guess it really won't be too long before he does have a mouthful of teeth . . . the first two are visible down there, and from his behavior, it's obvious that more will soon join them!

The only reason he was distracted enough to let me take pictures of those two teeth was because he was playing with my camera strap (hence the closeup of his little fist)!

We spent a good bit of time playing and talking and singing. I had to lay out his special quilt (designed just for him!) on the floor and let him play a bit on it. It was funny watching him try and grab up the polka-dots!

I know he's saying, "Grandma, enough with the camera already!"

Lastly, some video . . . because I can!
