10 months...


Sayer is now 10 months. For all of Sayer's sweet and sensitive nature, he has got quite the attitude. It has been coming out a bit lately, and I think it is hilarious. I may not think so when he starts walking and talking and throwing tantrums, but for now, it's pretty cute.
Sayer is very big on cuddling. He is becoming increasingly attached to me, which I'm not too sure about... as long as he is good to stay with a babysitter, it's all good. He loves to cuddle, and when Asher tries to intrude on our cuddle time, he will literally push Asher away. He is not afraid to "speak" his mind. He gets furious when Asher or I take something away from him. A few weeks ago, he was playing with a twisty-tie from a bag of bread... well I intervened and he was ticked. He dramatically threw himself to the floor, repeatedly slammed his legs down onto the floor, and threw a full on tantrum. I have never seen such a little baby throw such tantrum. I admit that I thought it was hilarious.


Sayer is very musically inclined. Whenever he hears music or singing, he will automatically start dancing, or in other words, bouncing up and down. It is so cute. Today Nate was clapping for him, and he got SOO happy. So we think he is going to love the stage. We only wonder what instrument he is going to want to play. We are pretty sure we are going to get Asher a mini guitar... he is obsessed. He does really well with it too. He is not rough with it, he will just sit and hold it nicely and strum away. I think he would be content to sit and do that forever.

Sayer loves to play with toys... not baby toys, but cars and trains, and all those big boy toys. I love it when he will entertain himself for awhile, going from room to room, finding things to play with. He does this frequently and will usually keep it up until Asher eventually pushes him or takes a toy from him... does something that ultimately ends with Sayer in dramatic tears. He is getting tougher though. I try not to give him attention when he has a minor bump or fall, and he has started to not cry as much after them.

Probably the funnest thing about Sayer is his crawling. He is such a deliberate crawler. I don't know how else to describe it. He is just so fast, and so precise with his hand/knee placement. It's like he's a perfect crawler. It is just so funny to watch. All I know is that this kid is going to be a riot. He has so much personality. Along with that though, I imagine will come his fierce little temper that we get glimpses of every once in a while. It is very different from how Asher ever was. But something tells me that he will be just as challenging. Fabulous.

Oh yeah, one more thing. I think Sayer's first word is "Asher". We noticed him saying "A-der" a lot, and when we would repeat "Asher", he would say it again. It makes sense if you think about it... why wouldn't "Asher" be his first word when that is what he hears being said all day long... "Asher, don't do that", "Asher, that was naughty", "Asher sit down and eat your food", "Asher, it's time to go to bed"... and on and on and on. It's pretty precious. We will have to try and get it on video sometime so we can get a second opinion.

He is so stinkin' cute...at least your not as jaded as us. When Jax' strong attitude showed itself starting at 6 months we lived in fear of what was to come! hahahaha

Your boys are both so adorable! I can't believe Sayer is already 10 months old - time flies!! That is cool that Ace Young not only went to church, but to your ward - that's pretty cool. And James would be so jealous that Richard Bushman is in your ward - he loves Rough Stone Rolling and is amazed at all the research and resources that Richard Bushman used in order to make sure that the book was as accurate as possible.

Maisey throws the same little tantrums. I have to try and not laugh since they will probably only get worse but it is just so funny to see someone so little wigging out!
