Growing Pains and Night Terrors

Landon is my growing pain, night terror child.  The night terror's started just after Sawyer was born, when Nate took the new job at the hospital.  The change in schedule and such must have triggered them.  When it first happened I was annoyed.  Why is my child freaking out and why wont he calm down? What was his problem? But after I figured out that Landon was having night terrors I was able to handle them.  Thankfully they stopped after 6 months or so. 
The growing pains started a year or two ago, I honestly am not sure exactly.  But they only bother him (and me) at night.  He wakes me up squealing (yes, squealing) and so I get up, get some ibuprofen and rub his foot.  They are mostly in his foot, his big toe and sometimes his shin.  I will be glad when they go away.  He just grows too darn fast.  So, why am I blogging about this? One, he woke me up squealing last night with growing pains.  Two, I thought I should document things for the future. :) If you need info on either subject I found help here and here.

Oh Sawyer

The three B's
Baba:  The sippee cup of milk we can't seem to get rid of.
Binki:  The plug that is never far away, yet always being searched for, that really needs to be permanently lost.
Blankie: The sweet blanket Danielle gave us that's been used, abused, made smaller, and stuck into nose and ears on a regular basis.  I need to remove all corners from the blankie.  

(Sawyer saw these pics and said "that's me sticking my corners in my nose like this" and then proceeded to demonstrate the above picture as well as a double ear job.  Nice.)

I can't
Lately Sawyer likes to say he can't. Here's a rather cute example of his "I can't"
Mr. Naughty pants was having a rather disobedient day.  Daddy, trying to encourage him to be more like Christ said, "Why can't you be good like Jesus?" and Sawyer said "No, I can't be good like that" (said with a 'duh dad, don't be ridiculous' tone).
