This and that...

Hard to believe October is in full swing...where did September go?  But we are welcoming fall with open arms.  This is my absolute favorite time of year.  We are enjoying cooler temperatures, pumpkin flavored everything, college football and the anticipation of all the upcoming holidays.  Such an exciting season that is so beautifully coinciding with my maternity leave.  I am soaking it up. 

Graham is doing great.  Still eating every 3 hours or so...which makes for a tired mommy but I'll manage because I know it won't last forever. 

And just for my memory for the next baby (because I would have sworn Sawyer was going longer than 3 hours at this point but after looking back he wasn't) our nights go a little something like this: 
Gra starts stirring and grunting
I lift him out of his bassinet
Start the feeding process
 nurse on one side, burp, change diaper, nurse on other side, burp, hold and pat his back until he falls back asleep.  This process takes anywhere from 30 minutes to an hour.
Lay him down
Get back settled in bed and fall asleep
Repeat in 2 hours
All of this done illuminated by the video monitor so I can see my other baby.  And occasionally my cell phone...nothing like the internet to keep you company during those middle of the night feedings.

He's started smiling more and more.  I haven't caught a good on camera but I'm trying.  But it is so adorable!!

Sawyer is great too.  A wild man but the sweetest wild man I know.

He loves giving high fives!

and wearing his rain boots.

We had a little glow stick fun in the bath tub.  Thanks to an idea I saw on Pinterest -- don't you just love that website!

This picture is so random but I wanted to remember that right now every.single.time. we go upstairs Sawyer has to turn this light on and off and adjust the dimmer about 3 times before he'll keep climbing.

And finally some brother love.  So sweet.  Saw has just gotten where he really wants to hold "baby" -- only for about 2 seconds but it's the sweetest 2 seconds ever. 

This was the most random post ever.  I'm blaming it on the lack of sleep.
