.:The Bakery:.

Hey Buzz,

So I wanted to share with you a funny story that Grandma Freed called and told me earlier this week while you were at her house. I should preface by telling you that one thing you love to do at the park is feed the ducks, and typically the diet that you provide them consists of large chunks of nearly-stale bread. On to the funny…..

On Monday,¬†December¬†2nd you were at Grandma’s house and as Grandma was getting ready for the day, not unusually you were playing in her shower. It was your “bakery”. You take the orders, bake them, and then serve them with a smile. You asked Grandma what she wanted from the bakery and she said, “Ummm, how about a cake?”

“No…” you replied. “Cake is for birthdays.”

“How about bread?” She asked.

“No, bread is for ducks.”

So we aren’t exactly sure what it is that your bakery actually bakes, but whatever it is, I’m sure the logic behind your product is flawless.

We think we also might know why it is that you don’t particularly like bread.¬†Because its for ducks, obviously.

Thanks for always making us smile.

Love you kiddo!

.: I Fink :.

Hiya Boo!

As parents, it is truly a marvel to watch the brains of you little people working. Sometimes its as though we can actually see the parts of your thoughts moving. Progressing from one to the next, putting together this infinite puzzle we call life. As your daddy and I have been able to watch you do this, we are amazed at how your little processor works. You hear a word one time, and then are using it (and correctly!) in a sentence. You watch daddy fix things and the next thing we know you’re rigging your own tools to fix something on your own. To watch your mind work is truly, well, mind boggling.

So you’re learning to think, or as you pronounce it, “fink” on your own. You do this constantly throughout the day. From deciding what you want to eat or drink, to which stuffed animal friends you want to take to Grandma’s or Staci’s, to which direction you want to sit on the potty. Yes, when left to your own devices, Daddy or I typically will respond to your calls from the bathroom for “Help!” or even just to “Yook at me!” to find you straddling the toilet, turned around backwards but getting the job done.

One such thought this weekend was especially….special. You came into our room, early Saturday morning. I helped you up into our bed and you asked for a “bottle”, which in our house is actually just a sippy cup with milk. Daddy was getting up to answer natures call at that time, so he said he would get your sippy. On his way out of our bedroom, in a barely awake voice you said, “Daddy…….” He didn’t hear you. So you said again, “Hey Daddy!” to which he responded, “Yes, Bug?”. You paused and then said, “I fink Mommy loves you.” Well, you’re absolutely right and Daddy and I both loved your observance.

As you grow older, and continue to learn new things, see new things, and experience new things, I would encourage you to always think for yourself. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t do whatever it is you want to do. Stay close to your family who loves you and would do anything for you and always remember that being you is what makes you so special.

I fink! I fink! I fink you’re pretty amazing!

Love you Boosey!



.:Let’s Potty!!:. – Part II

Hey Buggy, just adding to the memories here…..

Two more funny things to add to your potty stories:

March 21, 2013 – You went Number Two on the potty at home tonight! You were so excited when you were done, you looked at the Two and then ran and told Daddy, “Daddy, I pooped a pine cone!”

March 25, 2013 – You went Number Two on the potty at Staci’s again today – I know this because at 2:55pm, I got a text message from Staci that said “Sawyer: I did a banana poops!”

You had a really great weekend in regards to the potty. One “wet” accident and one Number Two accident. You’re doing so well, great job Sawyer!!

Your biggest Number Two fan,


.:Let’s Potty!!:.

Dear Sawyer,

Well, we’re in the thick of it. Potty training, that is. So far I’d say that this experience has not been as bad as I thought it was going to be. Or rather, as bad as I’ve heard other people describe it.

You have been REALLY good about going….uh, number one on the potty but there’s still some work to be done with number two. You still like to find a quiet place and do your business on your own and I can’t blame you, we’ve just got to get your quiet place to be in the bathroom…….on the potty.

The point of this update is to share with you a funny little tidbit from yesterday. You were at Staci’s as you usually are on Tuesdays and Wednesdays during the day. You are still wearing diapers at night, and so before we left the house yesterday morning, i changed you into a dry diaper not knowing if it was going to be a “good day” or a “bad day” in terms of potty usage. I received a text message from Staci at 10:13 a.m. that had me laughing hysterically and so VERY proud of you at the same time. The text said:

Sawyer just told me she had to poop. Sure enough, she did! After she was done she told her friends to come look at it. Lol!” (As you get older and get to know more about your Auntie Laura, you will definitely SEE more humor in this!)

Today, at Grandma Freed’s, you were in another room when Number Two was coming, and you yelled to Grandma to “Come here, Grandma, faster! faster!” Grandma didn’t make it in time and you told her, “Oh no, dere’s poops in my jammies. I sorry!” Its all part of the process and with this like everything in life, we’ll have successes and we’ll have oopsies. Whats important is that we’re getting there, and with every oopsie we learn a little more.

I’m so proud of your potty accomplishments! I know that looking back one day, these little things will seem unimportant and yes, I realize that they are just a part of your growing up – like every kid does and that at some point every kid has similar potty training experiences. But they are monumental as I watch you accomplish them and I am so honored that I get to share these milestones with you.

I will ALWAYS be your #1 fan, even when that means being excited about your #2’s.

I love you, kiddo. Keep up the good work!
