maybe a few of you have wondered at some time or another why this kid's mug rarely makes an appearance on my blog.
it's probably because he can't sit still for even a millisecond.
here is photographic evidence:
this, and this.
as you can see, I haven't banned him from the blog, it's just that I can't ever catch him.
and real quick, a little blast from the past:
at the time I was expecting him, I knew I was having a boy and that I was going to name him Sawyer. (what I didn't know, was that my parenting skills were about to be tested to the max.)
and so, after being told I was to head straight to the hospital while at a routine doctor appointment, Sawyer finally clawed his way to freedom. from the moment he gulped in his first breath he was already shaking his fist at the world, howling about terrible invisible injustices.
yet despite his quirky ways, boundless energy and the inability to talk without hollering, he's got a twinkle in his eye that far exceeds the mischievousness of the likes of Tom Sawyer. I see it as a determination to succeed in whatever he does.
yes, life with Sawyer has been everything but dull. it's been filled with laughter, love, joy, excitement and the odd urge to want to staple his mouth shut at times.
I wouldn't have it any other way.
