"Transformers, more than meets the eye. Transformers, Robots in disguise..." If you can finish this song, you are probably my age or older. Sawyer has found a new passion the past few months. He will ask me 100 times a day to transform and untransform his robots. Unfortunately, I am not skilled in this area at all. I can dress dolls and do hair and play house, but Robots? I have to tell him to wait till daddy gets home. I promise I am not trying to put it off. I really can't do it! He tells me to just read the directions, but I am still missing the transforming gift! He has played with them so much that he can now do most of them by himself...thank goodness! As for me, I am still learning the difference between autobots, megatrons, and deceptacons. Barbie and Ken will never live in my house will they?

If anyone is wondering why there are no new pictures or stories of adventure this past week, this picture should explain it all! So far, only Sawyer and I have had the plague. (no pukes for those of friends and family that have phobias!)We are praying that little Fisher will escape it as he already has his own issues. We got 7 hours of sleep in a row last night, but he spent it in the swing...YIKES! So if anyone has D batteries not being used, send them our way (just jokin) We do have intentions of training him to sleep in his bed, but who can complain about 7 hours!!!
By the way, notice Fisher's round face and double chin! He hasn't missed a single meal and is known to double up on meals too! The blemishes are from him clawing at himself in his crib. I cut his nails, but he still causes damage. He is desperately searching for his thumb...I hope he finds it soon!

Last Sunday after church, Sawyer came running up to me and said "mom, I caught a lizard!" I'm not afraid of lizards, but he definitely caught me off guard. I turned around and pretty much jumped as I was witnessing a very angry lizard snapping and hissing. Sawyer was sqeezing the life out of it and the lizard was beginning to break his skin. I've never seen such a proud look on my son's face! This is what Sawyer recalls of the experience. "I saw this lizard and I snuck up on it and I was so brave to catch it. It liked me holding it, he was smiling(this was actually biting). Sawyer reports, "you can catch a lizard at your church too, but don't catch an alligator lizard because they bite." This was the day we all learned about the northern California Alligator Lizard. When we googled it, the first sentence said, "when you see an alligator lizard, do not pick it up, they are known to bite!" Have I mentioned I love having boys?
