Happy 3rd Birthday to my dear, sweet Sawyer! 3 years ago, you came into this world with a vengeance and haven't stopped living with that spirit. You surprised us all (we thought you were a boy) and made me a mama to a baby girl. You haven't stopped surprising us.
This past year, you have truly started coming into your own. While you still look up to your big brother, you know what YOU want, and aren't afraid to let anyone know it.
You LOVE to swing. If I mention going to a park, you ask if there is anyone on "your sings". You could be pushed for what seems like hours. The joy on your face makes it pretty easy to want to keep pushing you higher and higher. You have such a special bond with your daddy. You still love for him to throw you into the air as high as he can, over and over.
As summer arrived, your love for the water has really started to shine. You always have the biggest smile on your face in swimming lessons, and couldn't wait for your turn in the water. My little water baby! You still share your love of baking with your mama. Your first to help me mix the batter (and taste test it). Chocolate chips cookies are your favorite to bake, though cupcakes are a close second.So much has changed since this next photo was taken a year ago. And yet, so much is the same. Your spirit, your fiery personality, your love for your family. You became a big sister, and handled that beautifully. I look forward to watching you grow in your role as you and Hudson grow up together.
My sweet Sawyer, happy 3rd birthday. We all love you so very much. I hope you get "everything" like you asked for. But most importantly, I hope you realize just how special you are when you see how many people come to celebrate you this weekend.
