SJ || 6 Months



Tonight, as I fed Sadie her bottle, I had a flashback to the moment we learned SHE would be joining our family.  Her nursery is the same room where Jon and I sat, listening to the words, "It's a GIRL!," play out on a voicemail from the OB office left earlier that afternoon.

Her big blue eyes and her coy little grin, a grin that takes over her entire face, producing the most adorable dimples I've ever seen, bring me more joy than I ever thought possible. 

This weekend has been one that I'll tuck away in my mind, to pull out when the girls get older and they're screaming at each other for stealing one another's clothes, or boyfriend for that matter (...if Dad ever lets them date).

I just frickin' love the way Sadie giggles when Lara gets real close to her face, so close their noses could touch, and says, "tickle tickle tickle!"  I'm actually kind of shocked Lara hasn't smothered her by now.

Sadie doesn't realize it, but whether she likes it or not, teacher Lara will always insist on "reading" to her.

One thing teacher Lara doesn't seem to quite understand is the art of sharing.  On the regular, she takes Sadie's toys from her, which doesn't phase Sadie one bit, only to tell me that, "Sadie is sharing."


And she's dead serious. 
Stealing and sharing....right now, they're one in the same in our house.


And on that note, let's move onto Miss Sadie June's 6 month update!




Sadie June: By the Month


Sadie Weighs .....Close to 16 pounds!
Sadie's Height.....Not sure, but my guess is 25 inches


Sadie is Wearing.....9-12 months, and can even rock an 18 month outfit on occasion!  Baby girl is growing like a WEED!

Sadie is Sleeping....pretty well!  We continue to give her a couple tablespoons of cereal in her nighttime bottle, and that seems to do the trick.  It also helps if we feed her some baby food for dinner an hour or so beforehand.  Sis goes to bed around 7 each night and every now and again, she'll wake around 4 and need a bottle, but rarely.

Sadie is Eating.....7 oz on the regular.  And loving all the baby food!!  She put down an entire container of sweet potatoes yesterday!  Today, she tried green beans and the jury's still out on if she liked it or not.  She loves carrots and seems to favor any type of fruit.  I'm trying to get more consistent on feeding her 2-3x a day, but dang, I forgot how hard feeding is at this age!  It easily takes a good 30-45 minutes to get thru a serving. 

Sadie Loves.....when I kiss the bottom of her little feet!!  And seriously, I could just eat 'em.  Chunky little baby feet are just EVERYTHING.  Can I get an Amen!?!?

Sadie Hates....hmmmm....again, a tough one as the kid is a freaking angel baby.  I'm going to go with strangers.  She is totally a momma's girl and I totally dig it.  I'm just soaking it up because #toddlerhood is just around the corner.  And she will not like me one minute.  Love me the next. And the next minute, throw something at me.  So yes, I'll take my little baby loving me and only me!
