Marathon Woman

Toni ran another marathon today. The weird thing is that it is kind of a non-event these days. She ran it then talked about taking Black Jack for a long walk when she got home. Smartly, she decided to go grocery shopping instead.

The Queen

My last post was in July? Well, I guess I've neglected the blogosphere as of late. That doesn't mean I haven't been taking some photos of Sawyer the Destroyer. Here are a few to tide folks over....
Sawyer has this really odd infatuation with Chapstick. Old photo from the old house, but wanted to share. 
This could have been dangerous.  She was pretty close to the rug.

A rare photo in this series that didn't capture boogers.  One of the few downsides of a good camera.

About to be up to no good.

Who needs pants with boots as cool as these?

One More from the Beach

This photo didn't turn out too great, but I think it captures the essence of the trip pretty well. Here's Sawyer with her cousin, aunts, grandma and mom.....

Beach Trip

Went to the beach last week in North Carolina.  I think it's safe to say that Sawyer is digging the beach this year.  It's a far cry from last year when the waves scared her.

Taking a walk with Grandma.

Just Chillin'

Here's Sawyer just taking a rest from a hectic day. I had to take the photo - she's never this still. Clearly, she takes after her mom.

By the way, the tune is from Jason Isbell's new album "Here We Rest", easily the best released yet in 2011.

Sawyer's Zoo Trip

A couple weekends back we took Sawyer to the Atlanta Zoo for the first time. It had probably been 20 years since I've been, so it was kind of new for both of us. Needless to say she loved it.  We'll have to take her back soon - already bought the family pass.

Sawyer at the Park or Cam's Jealous of Younger Brother's Photography Skills

I think I need to finally read the manual that came with my camera.  I can't have Brannon taking better photos of my daughter than I do.  Here's some proof of that he's seems to be the premier photobug in the family:

Terrified that GiGi's going to let go of her.
"You Must Be This Tall to Play Here"......nope, not a chance!

GiGi's in Town!

GiGi (or Gigi?), otherwise known as the Grandmother from North Carolina, came to visit over the weekend.  Some good shots of Sawyer messing around.

365 Days Older....

...but she doesn't look a day more than 364.  Here's Sawhorse munching on some cake. More birthday celebration to come this weekend when we take her to the Zoo.

Didn't take long to fall into a sugar coma.

She Works Hard For Her Money....So You Better Treat Her Right!

Grandma Russo noticed how interested Sawyer was when she vacuums and cleans up, so she bought Sawyer her personal set. I have a feeling that her fascination with cleaning will wane fairly soon, but for now she's taking it very seriously.

Clearly not pleased with the condition of the dog bed.

Samurai Sawyer!

Although my next post might contradict this, Sawyer's favorite toys thus far have been boxes and pretty much anything made of cardboard. She's especially entranced with the cardboard tubes in hangers as evidenced below....

It was a beautiful day in Atlanta. Sawyer felt like running all over the back yard and driveway.  Unfortunately, this resulted in a little trip-up that then turned into a face-plant. Here's the aftermath....

Pet or Child Gate?

These are Sawyer's best friends. She even howls at the moon sometimes with them. It's a beautiful concert....

Sawyer's worried about our taxation....

Sawyer's First Christmas

Here are some photos from Sawyer's first Christmas.  I imagine she'll get a little more out of it next year, but it was pretty fun nonetheless.....
