Blessing Pictures

Since in her first blessing dress pictures Sadie looked like she didn't have a neck, we decided to get some more taken.  I'm so glad we did because look at how cute they are!  My friend Gwen, a fabulous photographer, just came over to our house and took a bunch of shots of Sadie in her dress.  
My Grandma Hawkins made the dress years ago and Sadie was the first great-grandchild to wear it.  
I think she looks like a porcelain doll in these pictures!  Isn't she cute?  And looking more like her mom everyday.  Kidding, she looks just like her dad.
Along with the blessing dress pictures, my friend took some pictures with Sadie in a big pink tutu!  It was so fun.  Sadie had a great time playing in the tutu.

Sorry About The Last Six Months

Okay, okay....I know I'm the world's worst blogger.  It's not that I don't like to blog, I just forget.  No excuses, I will try to update you more often.  The last six months I have been busy trying to keep up with my very mobile, very curious child.  She is now eight months old!  She crawls all over the place, pulls herself up to stand and tries to get into everything!  It's so fun to watch her learn new things.  During our recent trip to Utah (I don't have pics from my sister yet), Grandpa Dawson taught Sadie how to clap!  We have so much fun together and I'm always a little sad to put her to bed at night.  Look at how big she is!

I can't leave her alone for two seconds anymore.  Just yesterday she learned how to get out of her Bumbo.  That's right, babies CAN get out of them.  I'm just glad I learned about her new trick without her falling off the counter.  I was doing dishes and one minute she was sitting in her Bumbo, the next minute she was lying on the counter trying to help me.  Not too long ago, when she was still scooting instead of crawling, she pushed herself under the couch and couldn't get out!  She thought it was funny for a minute and then realized that she was stuck and started screaming.  

She is very photogenic.  I guess it's unusual for babies to have dark eyebrows because she gets comments all the time on how nice her eyebrows are.   At least she got one thing from me (and  her charming personality of course).

Sadie chews on everything.  Just after she turned seven months she received her first two teeth.  She loves to bite toys, graham crackers, and mommy.  

One of her many talents, Sadie is an expert at rolling her tongue.  It is constantly moving in her little mouth.

But the best thing about Sadie is that she's always happy.  You can get her to smile pretty much any time of the day.  She loves watching Baby Einstein and her face lights up when the caterpillar comes in during the opening credits.  She laughs all the time and loves attention, of course.  I am so lucky to have this little angel in my life.  She makes me smile every day.

The Boppy Has Many Uses

Since the nursing isn't going so well, we have found other fun ways to use the Boppy!  Sadie loves using it as a way to strengthen her neck muscles, she loves to sleep on it, and we've also found it helpful when her tummy hurts.

Dinner With the Albrights

It was so fun to have the Albright family over for dinner when Grandma Jamie was in town last month.  There are so many little kids running around (and laying around) when we get together now!  

You can see Paige and Sadie hanging out on the floor during dinner.  They were born only a couple months apart, so they should be good friends as soon as they can walk and talk...

Sadie and Ryan

Sadie's favorite place to sleep is in daddy's armpit. He must wear good deodorant because she snuggles right up against him and falls asleep!
Now that we finally got our rocking chair, Ryan rocks her to sleep.  I think that he falls asleep before she does, but he gets the job done.

They are best buds!

Pool Party!

So, Ryan decided that Sadie was ready to take a swim at two months old! She actually loved being in the water. She just floated on her back until she got too cold!

Not a Good Blogger...

Sorry that it has taken me so long to post something. It's funny how fast the days go by when you're a mom!

Sadie is getting SO big. She's almost 3 months old and weighs about 11 pounds. She fits great in her clothes now (for the first month she didn't fit in newborn clothes at all). We had some fun pictures taken of her. Here's a sample...

Here she is in her crib...

And this was a candid shot taken when I was holding her over my shoulder...

I will try to update more frequently! Ciao!
