Sadie is 11Months!

11months and 1 more to go until our baby turns ONE! 

-Top teeth came in and she has the cutest little gap between them.
-Opening and closing doors (her fingers have been squashed a few times).
-Sadie got croup or just a really bad cough and cold? We took her to the doctor three times in one week and we still didn't get a clear diagnosis. She didn't eat solids for over a week and lost almost a pound. She was very clingy to Mommy, so we read in bed a lot! Super sweet!... Seriously, she touches something and catches an illness! Even though she wakes up at night, she is really a trouper during the day and doesn't cry much at all.
-Still nursing! I never imagined I would be nursing this long!
-She started taking her fingers and moving them up and down on her lips to make the cutest funny noises. She taught herself that!
-Crawling and standing up on everything. She is very busy now!
-Knows how to press the iPhone button
-Knows how to throw the ball for Maddie now!!! I mean this is Big!
-We had to call Dish. Sadie apparently ordered "GI Joe" on the remote, while we looked away for 2 seconds. Ha!

Strawberries, raspberries, bananas, green beans, and cheese. Refrigerator and the dishwasher doors, anything she can tap and jingle, remotes/iPhone, peek-a-boo and touch and feel books.

Hates: Getting dressed, diaper changes and her stinky feet touched! It's a battle every time! She's not a fan of teeth brushing either and Mommy came up with a silly song to get her excited, ha!

First ride!

Sadie is 10 Months!

Sadie is 10months (I lost my whole post and had to make time to write it again). 
This past month Sadie has done so many milestones and we are just so proud of our little girl!

Stats: 21.1lbs and growing like a weed! Fitting in 12month clothes now.

Milestones: Her second word "Dada," putting pieces of food in her mouth, crawling (no more army crawling), standing up by herself and three top teeth poking out!!

Events: Daddy turned 30 in the beginning of the month and had a big group of friends and family stay at Lake Norman, went on a boat ride, some of my California friends came, we started going to storyime at the Library, took 9month photos, went to DC to visit with Uncle Scott, Aunt Karen and Cousin Aiden and went to a huge pumpkin patch. Grammy flew out and visited for a week. We stayed in Durham, NC and toured Duke and Chapel Hill. Grammy actually saw Sadie's first crawl! Had a rough night in the hotel and a few nights after that, so we took her to the Doctor. Sadie had Hand, Foot,
 and Mouth virus! Same week she was teething and we went back to the Doctors and she had her fourth ear infection! Poor baby and very tired parents!!... For Halloween we had our friends the Matney's over and went trick-or-treating for the first time! The babies were adorable! Miss Sadie was a little lamb (of course), I was the Mama lamb and Darrin was the wolf. ha! 

Loves:Tapping and banging anything, the dogs water bowl (she crawls super fast when we aren't looking to splash, gross), loves to move all around while dressing her, dropping things on the floor while in her highchair, getting Maddie to wash her sticky food hands (gross again), sleeping in cars, kisses, holding anything in her hands and examining the textures, horsey ride, songs, stroller rides, and books still!

Sadie is 9Months!

Sadie is 9months (well, two weeks ago) and can't believe we are already planning her first birthday already!

9 month checkup stats: 19.14lbs (69%) 29.5" (96%)

She has her Daddy's good looks, but she's a Mama's girl alright! She said her first word "Mama" beginning of 8months! She usually says it when wanting out of her crib;)
Chunky foods: loves cheese, cherrios, yogurt, puffs, eggs, deli meat, bits of carrots and bananas, but still loves her beets, sweet potatoes and mangos.
-Sadie went on her third flight to California to visit family. Also to celebrate an old roomies wedding and my 32 birthday! She was amazing on the plane and was so content smiling at the old ladies and pounding the pretzel snack bag. 
-Oh sleep! It has been an issue since 7 months and awful when we were in CA. She hates pack-n-plays, but when we got back we let her cry it out in her crib more and she's been a lot better. S is napping more in her crib too!
-Sickness: Unfortunately, it's been a month of sickness again:( Double ear infection, fevers, major cold, sore throat and runny eye. She's been a trooper, but there was some sleepless nights and even one night on the couch.
-Some events: went to Brew Do beer fest, play date with Laura and Nolan, went to Homeplace and she tried southern mash potatoes and ice cream for the first time. Then Nana babysat while we went to a VT football game.
-Loves: Electronics (especially the monitor, iPhone and tv remote) paper, us singing to her, stroller rides, dog leashes, and now knows Maddie's love for disgusting dirty tennis balls. Caught her with her mouth on one, ewwwww!!!

9 Month check-up and flu shot;(

Sadie is 8 Months!

Sadie is 8months (well two weeks ago, but I'm finally getting the chance to blog)!

August was filled with swimming lessons, no sleep and teeth for our little girl.

Sadie and I, my friend Laura and her son Nolan made a 9am swim class every day for two weeks. We never missed a class and our babies were the best kids in the pool! So glad she loves the water and that we started her early. The two year olds in the class had the hardest time. We hope to do another class in the late fall again.

Since Sadie started teething at 7months she decided to have major attachment issues at night. We saw the doctor about it and it's pretty normal around her age. We started sleep training her more this past week, but the past month and a half has been tough at night. 

New milestones:
Two bottom teeth, loves to wave her hands and say "All done" in sign language, waving, transitioned to a pink camo sippy cup, cheerio's, sitting in a high chair at restaurants and a grocery cart. Loves the book, "Eight Silly Monkeys," stroller walks, and loves swings!

She has done a few more milestones since turning 8months, but I'll wait to write them in her 9month post...

Super Girl!
