Life with Sawyer

Once Sawyer was home from the hospital the twins were fascinated him.   Meanwhile, Evan and I tried to figure out how to manage life with a newborn and 2 1/2-year-old twins.  

The moment Sawyer cried one of them would run to get his pacifier.  The twins would always make sure that he was covered with at least a blanket if not other things. . .

A very wise and close friend advised me and Evan that at our wedding we should stop every once in a while and just enjoy the moment.   I thought our wedding would go by very quickly and it did.   I did not think that our time with Sawyer would be so quick.   I wish I had stopped to just enjoy more moments with Sawyer.

  1. Lanie,
    Time doesn’t stop for anyone, does it? I wish I could go back for those “moments” and hold them just a little closer.

  2. It’s so unfair, but it’s these pictures that are the precious moments that will last forever

  3. Love that picture with Sawyer and the stuffed animals.

  4. I completely understand, Lanie. I always look back and wish the same thing for the short time we had with Aaron. I’ve tried to remember that for all things in life now…stop…soak the details in…enjoy the moment.
    I love the picture of Sawyer surrounded by so many blankets and stuffed animals! So sweet! What adoration and love from his brother and sister!
    Prayers and love to you all and sweet Sawyer.

  5. Hi… I just found your blog today through Danielle’s…

    I think the same thing about my Ethan- why didn’t I just FORGET ABOUT all the “meaningless” stuff in life- like cleaning, laundry, etc., and enjoy more of the moments with our son??? But, when I express this to my husband, he says this: “We didn’t know Ethan was going to die. We lived NORMAL LIFE with him. That is BEAUTIFUL to me- that he was a part of our normal family life! Besides, Ethan liked wearing clean clothes, too.”

    Now, I’m not sure Ethan really noticed how clean his clothes were, but the rest of what my husband says does bring me a little comfort…

    We DIDN’T know Ethan was going to die… we thought he was going to be fine, just like his sister…

    And I, too, LOVE that he was a part of our normal family life.

    I hope this brings you a teensy bit of comfort as you think about your Sawyer.

    Praying for you and I can’t wait to read more about him!
