Update coming!!!

OK...so it has been 7 months since my last update...so a LOT has changed! We have moved from our apartment to a house that we love! Sadie is 18 months old now...and TJ will be three YEARS old next month! WOW!!! So...I have lots of pictures to sort through--then I'll post the official update! Thank you for your patience!

Well, I cannot believe it--Sadie will be turning one on Tuesday this upcoming week! And today we had her party! It was a GREAT party with lots of close friends there, and we ate and ate, and then ate cake! The cakes turned out perfect and we have LOTS leftover that we will eat off of this week.

Sadie was the hit of the party of course--from her entrance in the video below...to the green icing all over her...to eating watermelon herself. :) She is such a sweet baby girl and a true princess at heart, living up to the meaning of her name!

So, happy birthday to Sadie--and here are lots of pictures for you to enjoy the day with us!

Snow day update

We finally had SNOW in Alabama this year! Who knew it would come in March?!?! It was a good one, even though it didn't last very long. But we managed to get out in it, throw snowballs, take pictures and freeze our fingers before coming back into our warm home! TJ just LOVED playing in it! He would just ask us to kiss his freezing and red hands to make them feel better--because I'm guessing they hurt they were so cold! And he just cried when we said time to come in. He is such an adventurous 2-year-old...and we LOVE that about him!

Sadie and I snuggled under her warmest blanket while we were outside. She wasn't in the snow playing like TJ, but she sure was cute all bundled up! Enjoy the snow pics!

Update Needed!

Hello all! A lot has happened since my last post! First of all...Sadie pulled up to standing at around 7 1/2 months, and now she's "cruising"--which means walking with the help of holding onto furniture (or us--whichever is closest). :) She looks so cute to be cruising! She is also eating more and more table foods now--THANK Goodness!! I thought we were going to be serving baby food forever! AGH! She likes to eat beans, pasta, and real veggies and fruits! She still loves her some applesauce though! And if only she'd get those first teeth in!

Then Christmas happened! It kinda came and went this year. We went up to South Carolina and got to see just ALL of our family! (Well, except the extended ones.) It was so nice to see everyone and we got lots of pictures with TJ and Sadie with their cousins! That's the first time we've all been together in YEARS! It was such a nice trip!

And TJ TURNED TWO YEARS OLD!!! Can you believe it?!? I remember just before he turned one...he started walking like he'd been doing it all along. Well, this year, just after his 2-year mark, he has started talking more and more like he's been forming sentences all along! Amazing how the milestones happen right on cue! Now, he is also about to get his two-year molars in. I can only tell by the fact that he chews his fingers in the back of his mouth--which he's never done. He is also hungry all day, and may be about to go thru a growth spurt. For part of TJ's Christmas, we put his "new" bed up--a twin bed. We've had it in his room for a few months, but finally put his new sheets on it and pillows, for him to sleep on when we returned home after Christmas. It looks nice for his room to have only the twin bed in there, and no longer have the crib set up! And he loves sleeping in it! He rolled off only once at the foot of the bed (where there is no rail) when he was playing. And one night, he cried out at about 1 o'clock in the morning, and when I went to check on him--I found him asleep on his rug on the floor. He didn't fall out--he must've just gotten out of bed and fallen asleep down there! HA! I've turned his bed around where the feet are at the wall, and the headboard keeps him from rolling off at the top, and the bedrail on the side keeps him from rolling out that way. He has done great since doing that!

So...I guess my next update will be in a week. My BIG 3-0 is next Tuesday. I used to think 30 was old! Now, from what I hear, it's just "the next 20"! Yay for that! :) I have several goals this year, and one of them is to get back to looking like I did when I WAS 20 while I'm 30! :) I will keep you updated on my activities and my progress as it goes. And maybe (MAYBE) I'll get up the nerve to do some "before" pics to show you AFTER I'm done! :)

I am thoroughly enjoying TJ and Sadie at the ages/stages they are in now. I am looking forward to the day that we can go out more often (when our entire day isn't full of naptimes), and when they can BOTH talk and interact more with each other. Right now, TJ is saying "I love you, Sis" in his own special way--and I fall in love with them both over and over again each day!
