Learning to Sit and a Spring Weekend

The weather has been so nice these last week, finally we are getting some Spring weather; although I hear that the rain is coming back in a few days. This weekend we spent a lot of time in the backyard, took our first trip as a family of 4 to the Farmers Market, and Mike and Sawyer planted a garden. Blair is perfecting her sitting skills and I couldn't be more excited. I love the sitting baby stage - so cute, so wobbly.

We love getting fresh vegetables at our local Farmers Market, well technically it is called the "Saturday Market" and Sawyer calls it the Super Market. We go by our own rules. We went yesterday for the first time this year and Sawyer said he was going to pick out a vegetable. I have never in my life seen him eat a vegetable aside from baby food (kind of ridiculous) but we were encouraging him and he was excited. He wanted to get a carrot, but we couldn't find one. I told him we had carrots at home, and he settled on picking some beets. Wouldn't you know, he didn't eat either. Maybe next time. Blair was a good girl and sat in nicely in her stroller making her little baby noises here and there. Sawyer pointed out every single dog he saw, he was very excited about seeing dogs. I love that boy, he is a funny kid.

Once we got home the boys worked on getting a spot in the yard ready for a garden and then they planted the plants we bought at the market. Blair and I hung out too, she was bopping around in her saucer.

Today we ran some errands and spent some more time outside. Blair decided she didn't want to be good napper so she had some cranky moments, but all in all, it was a nice family day. I told Sawyer to put on his shoes because we were going to leave to run some errands and he asked me what errands were. I said "it is where were go to a few places and get some things we need. Like today we have to get Blair some diapers and Bugaboo some food." He said in the same tone I was talking in "and get Sawyer some fish." It was hilarious. He is always scheming ;)

I know I have too many pictures to post, but I really did my best to narrow them down. I just never want to forget Sawyer and his cool long hair (though I do think he needs a haircut) or Blair's chubby cheeks and roly-poly legs. I love everything about these kids and I will never regret all my pictures.

We let Sawyer fall asleep in our bed one night-shark shirt, shark stuffed animal, shark blanket

How sweet is she in her sun hat? I can't take it!

She noticed her feet

She's going for them

I was loving seeing her toes through the screen

Blair also had some food for the first time! Oatmeal and sweet potatoes, she wasn't all that into it despite how the last couple of pics look

Also.... Happy Birthday Mom and Dad! : ) Love you!
