I have lost a "Sawyer!"

As you know, I have been trying to get healthier and lose weight.  The other day, Sawyer was playing in the bathroom with the scale.  She got it turned on, and asked me what the number said (she is only good to about 23 or so.)

I looked over and told her "You weight 36.7 lbs, honey."

Then it occurred to me.  I have lost a "Sawyer'. As of today, the official total is 40.2 lbs in just under 12 weeks.

"Sawyer, I have lost you!!"  I tell her.

She looks extremely confused.  After all, she isn't lost.  She is standing in her bathroom, looking right at me.

"No, I used to have the same amount as you on my body and now it's gone!  I lost you!"  I excitedly proclaim, gesturing like crazy.

Now a panicked look has entered her eyes.  She knows that babies grow in tummies and I think she is worried that I am going to try and put her back.

Finally, I hugged her and congratulated her on being found and not being in any one's tummy and for weighing 37 lbs.  She was happy and toddled off. 

I just congratulated myself quietly.  :)  It's better that way.
