Sawyer’s Latest Toddler Milestone {Plus $150 Babies R Us #GiftCard & Pampers #Giveaway}

Earlier this week I took out all our photos from 2012. It was so much fun looking back through Sawyer’s first year. I forget sometimes just how little and precious they were. All the boys have grown so much over these two last years! Sometimes I don’t even realize just how much time has passed until the old photos come out.

TWO Sawyer James Laundry Basket Milestone

Another thing you notice looking through the first year is how many milestones they hit. That first year is full of them! The first bath, the first food, an even the first tooth. We might be well out of our first year but we’re still hitting milestones. The things Sawyer has learned over this summer has been countless but some of his favorites have been these:

Learning how to eat his own ice cream cone:

Learning how to use the hose all by himself. He likes to show off that he can even do it one handed now:

He learned how to run in the rain and enjoy it:

He even learned how to ride his bike!

But most importantly he learned ‘duck face’ with his big brother.

We may be bigger and the milestones might not be coming as fast but one thing that hasn’t changed is we’re still in Pampers. Sawyer is on the go and Pampers does a great job at making sure no matter the adventure he stays dry and most importantly he stays comfortable.

  2. http://Katie%20S says

    My son just turned 2 years old. He actually just started telling me when he needs a diaper change! I couldn’t be happier! We aren’t potty training for a few months still because we are expecting another baby in just under 8 weeks and I know we should wait until after we’ve all adjusted to the new baby. But, I’m so excited to know he is on his way to being ready to potty train! Also, he started sharing a room with his big brother 2 weeks ago and has adjusted so well! He’s turning into a big boy himself!

    My daughter’s new milestones happened all at once. The first was no more nursing (at all). The second being sleeping in her own bed every night as opposed to in our bed or on the couch with me. And the third being using the potty (she went straight to undies, no trainers) without more than a handful of accidents to speak of, including during the night. She is 2.5 and and we just hit it all at once and have not looked back.

  71. http://Betty says

    All the potty achievement comments reminds me of the lunch outing when my daughter was 3-ish. We were military and at that time stationed in England where the country has some definite ideas about children and manners in public. So anyway, we were trying to manage a restaurant lunch and our neighbor took the two girls to the ‘loo’. mine came back sooo excited and fairly loudly shared how the stool was PINK! There was silence in the room and then everyone continued their quiet conversations. What a milestone day that was. And yes we did work on having an inside voice. That little girl is now an engineer and has 3 friends that had summer babies. (all boys)
