Soccer, Another Cold, and Boomerang Practice

This week we had Sawyer's 2nd soccer practice and he was so happy! I remembered to bring my zoom lens so I got some slightly better pictures this time. He loves soccer and has asked everyday since Monday if it was soccer day. The kids are so cute and I love watching Sawyer do his thing. Blair and I sit on a blanket and she eats snacks and plays with toys. I recently started supplementing with 1 bottle of formula a day (I can't keep up with her) and she was so cute relaxing and drinking her bottle.

I love the tongue

That same day I took Blair in to a late evening doctors appt (I love that our place is open late, we got a 7pm appt). She was wheezing that afternoon and we wanted to make sure she was ok, turns out she just had another cold that came about right after she finished a round of antibiotics from her LAST cold. These back-to-school germs a brutal! 

Still smiling!

The next day I rearranged the playroom and Sawyer kept saying "our house is so different!" They both like the new arrangement and I do too.

Not the best picture of her, but this totally encompasses about 90% of the pictures I take of her. She is so funny and nuts, (blinking, crazy hair. racing towards me)

her little bottom teeth are too cute. Her top 2 are poking through now! 

Mike surprised Sawyer with a new boomerang a few days ago. Sawyer has been into boomerangs the last few months, (I'm thinking I remember something from a Jake and the Neverland Pirates episode). I got him a traditional looking one over the summer but it doesn't work well, and the one Mike got (triangle shaped) was a slam dunk. We went to the park today and tried it out, Sawyer insisted on bringing the one I got him so it turned into a boomerang day. We also brought a frisbee, can't have too much fun!

she is still getting used to her shoes....

I love my little crew!

Harvest / Soccer / Walking Fool

After starting our garden back in April earlier this month we finally had our big harvest. We had some zuchinni and peas earlier in the summer, but Mike's pride and joy tomatoes and jalapenos were ready for picking. Sawyer was happy to help with the tomato picking (and we got him a new shirt and shinguard-socks for soccer on this day so he had to try them on/wear them for the rest of the day).

He was stoked

Blair was sporting some hilarious pigtails

not too shabby!

The next day was Sawyer's first real day of soccer. We had gone last month to a little practice hour and Sawyer loved it so we signed him up.  If he could, he would wear his soccer socks everyday.

Blair had fun eating snacks and playing with toys on a blanket

Sawyer was adorable and the coach was really good with these littles. I messed up and brought my wide angle lens instead of my zoom lens, so these are ridiculously cropped and awful. Oops.

Blair wanted in on the water bottle action. Thankfully Sawyer didn't see this happening. 

Later that week Blair had a pony tail, I took it out and this happened. I love her crazy hair!

This week was supposed to be week 2 of soccer, but after we left the house I found out it was cancelled due to poor air quality (there was a forest fire Northeast of us), Sawyer was pretty bummed but it was for the best.

This handsome boy is still adjusting to school. I think he loves the learning aspect but is having a hard time socializing. The first two weeks of school he said daily that no one wants to play with him, but this last week I think things are getting a bit better. He doesn't ever seem to be too upset about it, and he loves singing new songs and telling me about his day (and I love hearing about it).

Blair started taking steps right after she turned 10 months old, and now she pretty much walks everywhere. It is hard for me to get a video of it but I was able to get this little gem. 

She just makes me laugh. I love her crazy spirit. 

I asked Sawyer what his favorite thing about school is. (Please excuse the mess of the house, these kids are hooligans.)

Yup, a waffle for dinner.

And from today - Sawyer asked me if I like his moustache, who wouldn't? (also note the game-day jersey)
