Dear Sawyer (8 Months)

Dear Sawyer,

Whoops, I guess we missed your 7 months post, you are already 8 months! We have been spending this gorgeous summer outside nearly everyday and I just haven't had the time to write a post. I just started looking after your buddy Jack a few times a week and you guys are hilarious to watch, you look like crazy little Italian men. It will be so fun to watch you two grow up together.

At eight months

- you are in size 4 diapers

- 12m - 12-18m clothes

- I don't know how much you weigh but at 6 months you weighed 21lbs and you have grown even more, such a big dude

- you have four teeth

- you give big open mouth kisses

- you love to play pat-a-cake and clap your hands

- you are crawling

- you are so snuggly

- you growl all of the time. When the dogs do their play fighting you laugh so hard and start growling like them

- your sister is still your number one fan and she is yours

- you were sleeping through the night for a week or so and now that has gone out of the window. You are too stoked to try out all of your new tricks you have been learning and now have no interest in sleeping.

- you are either super smily and happy or you make the most ridiculous frown and look like you hate life haha  (your frown makes you look just like your dad)

Willow Is Three

We celebrated Willow in true Ukee fashion...

She requested daddies famous crepes

Hiked the Wild Pacific Trail

When we came home a life-sized princess by Sharkys Balloons was waiting to play with her

We went to the Howlers for presents, bowling and dinner

That cake by Zoes Bakery was out of this world

We snuck off to the beach to say goodnight to the sun

Dear Willow,

You are three whole years old! I can't even believe how much joy you have brought us in your short little life thus far.

 You are wild, energetic, brave, compassionate, smart, adventurous, curious, hilarious, beautiful, kind, stubborn, polite, loving, fun, inquisitive, charming, whiny, sweet, I mean I really could go on forever.

You have been the absolute best big sis to your little bro. You are so patient with him. He will grab a huge chunk of those curly locks and you will just painfully grimace and wait for him to let go and then laugh afterwards.

You are such a performer, someone get this kid an agent. You sing and dance all day long. Shaking your hips and shoulders are your signature
