Sawyers stats and Race for the cure! Picture overload

We did the race for the cure on May 8th. My cousin ashley bless her! Had shirts made that said three time survivor Mary Elen Belnap and on the back it said I wear pink for grammy! It was such a powerful overwhelming experience. I cried pretty much the whole race. We got her a wheel chair which she sat in for maybe 1/3 of the way. She said she wanted to get out because she didn't want people to think she couldn't walk on her own. She is the bravest most positive women in the world. She is in so much pain and still she is the sweetest most fun person to be around. When we would pass people they would yell "yay for grammy" It made her day. And when we crossed the finish line she raised her arms up and cheered. It was very sweet and I know it meant a lot to her to be with all those other great women who are battling the same battle as she is. It was very special to be a part of that amazing experience. Now onto Sawyer. We got his 4 month shots down on thursday. I HATE it so much. This time braydon came with me. He was so happy and laughing until she gave him the shots then he was a very sad baby. His leg still has a big bruise! His stats are weight still 50% his height is 73% (tall boy) and his head is 64%. So he is doing great!!! We started rice cereal and he started sleeping in his own room.... well when he does sleep he is in his own room. We are hoping he will start sleeping through the night soon. Cross your fingers. He is still such a happy baby and getting more and more fun. He talks in his sleep and he talks all day long.... He is really spoiled and never gets put down. I am thankful for all the people who love him and who are so good to him. We are so thankful that we have such a healthy happy sweet boy! He brings so much joy to us!

A- About the bravest person I know

My mom, She doesn't get enough credit for being the person she is. She works hard, She is kind and accepts everyone, She is a great friend, a great spouse my dad adores her, a great friend, a wonderful grandmother, a really fun mom, easy going, easy to talk to, brave, and so many other things. My mother helps so many people and mostly me. She lets me live with her and she takes care of my baby while i work on mondays. She is so good with Sawyer and He LOVES her. I am grateful that she is my mother and she gave birth to paul and I. The pictures i'm going to put up capture some of what my mother is... caring, the best friend anyone could have, take care of you before herself kind of person. I am thankful she birthed me. She has taught me what is to be a mom. I hope i live up to her excellence. She is amazing and has been trough more then any mother should have to go through and she still gets up and makes people feel like a million bucks. I love my mother and i'm eternally grateful to heavenly father for letting me be her daughter.

Lots of pictures!

We haven't been up to a whole lot because it's still been kinda cold. We did go outside yesterday for about 15 minutes to play in the grass. He wasn't so sure about it at first, but then he really liked sitting in his bumbo in the grass. Things he is doing
* He is now grabbing his feet and rolling from side to side while on his back
* He talks in his sleep and smiles in his sleep
* He laughs all the time
* He cries when we get in the car but stops as soon as I take him out of his car seat and he smiles like nothing ever happened
* He is starting to recognize people. People he really likes.. GM laura GP Eric, uncle paul my aunt lisa uncle ben and aunt em... and of course his mommy and daddy
* We thought he might start sleeping through the night because i few nights he only woke up once well now he is waking up between 4 and 6 times a night just to be up
* He only likes to nap in his bed he won't take naps easily if it's not in his little bed.
* He loves his jumper but can't quite reach the floor, but he knows if he leans hard to one side he can touch one foot, but he loved to play with the things on top!
WE love out sawyer and he is growing up and getting so big on us. He will be 4 months on thursday!!! I can't believe it. I'll update on his status from his doctors appointment next week!
