back to normal . . .

Finally, after two lovely weeks of extra long weekends and short work weeks, things got back to normal. Add to that there are no more physical therapy appointments cutting into my work day, and my four-day work week is really going to feel like it's dragging for a bit, until I get used to it again!

Yesterday I was back to normal with Sawyer, too. I can't believe how much he's grown - and that in just over two months he'll be ONE YEAR OLD! Good gravy!

Yesterday I got to help get him to his check-up. His pediatrician is wonderful! I had to laugh, though -- it's be AGES since I sent foot in a pediatrics office!

Sawyer was all about playing with that stethoscope! He is very healthy and growing both physically and developmentally as he should. He had his very first eye exam and did great, and had a little blood work done, too. He didn't even flinch when the tech took blood from his toe. He did flinch, however, and cry, when he got a vaccine. I cried too. What?!?!? He didn't cry for long -- maybe 15 seconds. He's a tough guy!

By the time we got back home (and he'd slept the whole way), the shot was a distant memory, and we had a fun afternoon making faces and playing.

I even managed to get a decent shot of the two of us!

He'd gotten a ton of toys for Christmas, and when I set him down, went right for the basket.

He loves anything that makes noise, so I wasn't surprised he pulled out the electronic book his Aunt Joc and Uncle Jason gave him!

But he also likes things of substance to put in his mouth, which explains why he liked this wood crane, with a mouth-sized magnet on it!

But only until his book made a noise and got him turned around to play with the buttons again!

All in all, it was a lovely grandbaby day!

For family, here's my fellow walking and talking . . . !!!

Is it any wonder that I love Mondays?

I love your Sawyer pictures! It's a different experience taking a grandchild to the pediatrician than when we took our own...it least it was for me, but I'm glad I got to do it a couple of times.
