Month Nine

Sawyer is 9 months old! He's been a busy little guy this month; he started crawling, pulling up, and cut his first tooth! If I thought he looked like a little boy before, I had no idea what I was in for once he started pulling up. It's amazing how big he looks when he's standing! He is still an incredibly easy baby and I absolutely love being his mom. I know motherhood is what I was meant to do, which is such a cool feeling. Sawyer brings me more joy than I could ever explain. I love my little man!

P.S. He thinks the sticker he's supposed to wear in his monthly photos is a toy, so we didn't manage to get any pictures of him with it on this month. Oh well...we still took tons of photos!
