5 Months and A Lot of Pictures!

It's True! Sadie is 5 months old and continuing to grow. She is getting so big and is changing everyday. She is getting really good at sitting up and rolls all over the house.

She is still a very happy baby and we have to remind ourselves how lucky we are.
We are getting ready for the holidays and we got to take our picture with Santa Clause!!! We went to the mall and only had to stand in line for about 40 minutes. But is was all worth it too get Sadie's picture for her first Christmas. She was really great in the line, but got really tired right before it was our turn. She didn't cry of fuss with Santa, but she did not give her big smiles.

Santa was really great and was so nice. You can tell by his face what a sweet man he was.

We are so excited to be going to Utah for Christmas. We are leaving on December 22 and will come back January 3rd. Since the weather is Freezing in Utah, we had to get Sadie some new warm clothes. This is one of her outfits.
Sadie was a little sick this past month and had an enlarged spleen. She had to go and get her blood drawn and tested. Her veins were so small in her arms that they had to try each arm. It was really horrible and luckily her dad was there to hold her. The tests came back fine and then she had to get immunization shots in her cute, chubby legs. :( That was sad too.
I added a new addition to Sadie's room. This is it.
Sadie now loves to sleep on her stomach. She sticks her little bum in the air and sprawls out. She also drools a lot!!
The other weekend we got together with Nik and Anissa and Noah and Giselle and made gingerbread houses. It was a lot of fun to get together. Here is Nate constructing our house.
Still putting the house together......
And Ta-Da!! Here is our masterpiece. And yes, we cheated and bought a kit. No judging.
I bought this beanie and love putting Sadie in it.
Such a cute sleeper!

We are so lucky to have Sadie in our lives. We could not be more happy. Everyday is a blessing with her.
We are so excited to go home for Christmas and will have a lot of pictures to post. For now, Have a Merry Christmas and we Love you All!!

4 Months (and Halloween, yes I am a little behind)

Sadie is now the big 4, (months that is). Getting older and older, and cuter and cuter. She is starting to get into the really fun stage of knowing who you are every time you pick her up. She is smiling all the time and is getting closer and closer to having a belly laugh.

She is getting really close to sitting up by herself. Apparently she thinks she is a big girl.

Sadie loves to take baths! She is so happy when she is in there and will just play and splash around.

Here she is with Nate after church. She was trying to channel some Hawaii vibes. ( I think this is her way of telling us where to go on vacation)

This is Sadie just being cute.

We were able to go take some fun pictures of Sadie up by a lake by our house. It was really pretty. We are hoping that soon we will be able to utilize the lake more.

So for Halloween Sadie was a little Lamb!! I saw this costume and could not resist. The hat part was really small and did not fit on her head as you could probably tell but she did not seem to mind. For Halloween our ward had a trunk or treat in the elementary school parking lot. They have hot dogs, chili, and homemade root beer. Then we all decorated our trunks and the kids all walked around. It was our first time at a trunk or treat and we really loved it. It was nice to not have to get up and down to get the door and our dogs did not bark at all. It was fun to see all the costumes and to mingle with people from the ward and all the neighbors that we did not know. I think next year we are going to go all out with our trunk and costumes, (we did not dress up as anything unless you call regular clothes and us saying we were sheep herders a costume).
The costume did not seem to bug Sadie and she seemed to have a lot of fun. That is the whole 20 minutes that she was awake. :)

Overall it was a great holiday and hopefully Sadie will have some great memories. And yes, she loves you all!

Sadie's First Trip To Pinetop!

Ok, first things first. I went the mall yesterday and I just could not help myself! I have always talked about getting Sadie's ears pierced and I actually did it!! I know, some may think that horrible, but she looks so cute! She did scream, but after about a minute she calmed down and was fine. She has not had a problem since. So yeah...

The weekend of mine and Nate's birthday we decided to go to Pinetop! We invited Noah and Giselle to come, and of course Sadie and Rajko. We had so much fun.

The weather was really great. In the early morning and evenings, it was a little chilly but all you needed was a sweatshirt. During the day it was really nice and cool.

Here are Rajko and Sadie watching Baby Einstein.They really enjoyed it and it was helpful when we were eating dinner.

We had to make sure that Sadie had some warm shoes while we were up there so we couldn't resist getting these leopard print Ugs.
Here we are walking around one night and stopping by the club house.
This was Sadie's first bike ride! We were able to bring up all four of our bikes and we borrowed a trailer from Nik and Anissa, (thanks guys!).
Sadie was all bundled up and ready to go. One day we rode to the family dollar down the street and got stuff to make s'mores. Another day, we followed a paved path around the town. It was a lot of fun to see the area and be out. Sadie loved the bike rides. I think that we are going to have to purchase a bike trailer so we can take her on more rides.
Noah and Giselle watched Sadie one day so Nate and I could go biking. The area was really really pretty. Not much of a mountain biking trail, but it was still a great workout.
You can't really tell, but Nate is catching some air on a little jump.
This was our cabin that we stayed in. We are really grateful that we have our time share and that we are able to share it with others.
On the way home from Pinetop there is a great lookout spot that you can take pictures. We may have gotten a little carried away, but it was fun.

Thank so much to Nate for planning the whole thing and booking the resort. Also thanks to Noah and Giselle for driving and coming with us. It was a lot of fun to leave the stresses of life and go relax up in the "woods". (Yes, I know that they are not like the woods back home, hence the " ". ) I think that we may have to make this a yearly event and all that want to come are welcome!!

3 Months and Counting!!

Sadie is now three months old!! I can't believe how fast it has gone. She is now pushing about 11 lbs 12 oz. She is definitely growing and she does have the thighs to prove it. Once again, here is an overload of pictures and what we have been doing the past month!
Sadie has gone to the "Spa" twice now. And when I say "spa" I mean that while she is sleeping I have painted her toenails. It is so cute. She is a girly girl, no question about it. (sorry the pictures are a little blurry)
Sadie is still a big sleeper, (no complaining here). She takes naps and does pretty good when we put her down at night.
And my favorite is when she will take naps with me!! There is just something about a baby sleeping with you. :)
Monday night we were able to spend time with Nate's cousins Christina and Dan, and Tom and Candace were in town. It was really great to talk and catch up with them. Then we all went to dinner at a Mexican restaraunt.
Nate and our cute little family!
Sadie got this cute hoodie from some of my co-workers. It is a little too big, but she still loves to wear it and looks so darn cute!
Sadie is such a good girl that we are able to go out to the movies. This past month we were able to go see The Proposal again, as well as Surrogats.
Last weekend we spent Saturday night hanging out with Noah and Giselle. Their ward had a ward talent night and asked them to dance. There was a lot of good food and it was a fun night. Although it made me miss dancing! I may think about volunteering Nate and I for something just so I can dance with Nate again.
Every Thursday night Nate has been playing indoor soccer. Sadie and I usually go and cheer Nate on. It is really fun to go see Nate play. He is really good, although he may not agree. In his last game he made a goal!!

Sadie is really getting strong. When we put her on her tummy she is great at holding her neck up. She is also getting close to rolling over.
Sadie is smiling so much!! It seems that every time you look at her she is smiling. She is really getting close to laughing too. She gets so excited and about to laugh but then doesn't get there. But really soon.
Gotta love the dog. He has not been a star on the blog lately since the baby, but he is still here and we still love him. He does really good with Sadie. Everytime I come home from picking her up he is so excited to see both of us and always gives her a kiss.
Sadie is in a little bit of an awkward stage where she is getting too big for her 0-3 month clothes, but all of her 3-6 month clothes are too big. But I am really excited for her to fit in her clothes. We have some really cute things.
Well hopefully this post will give everyone a good update on what we have been doing and give the grandparents sufficient pictures of their little Sadie. I still can't believe how blessed we are and the joy that Sadie brings to our lives. I am so grateful for Nate and for all the help. He is really great with Sadie and there is just something about a dad and his little girl.
