1 Month Old!!

Well Sadie is actually about 5 1/2 weeks now, I have just been a slacker about the posts. So here is a picture of her at 1 month! She is growing so so much and has cute chunky thighs. I went and had her weighed, just to make sure that she was gaining weight and getting enoung to eat. She now weighs 9 lbs 14 oz!!! So she is getting enough to eat for sure!

She still is as cute as ever and I love all the clothes that we have for her!! Like this cute onsie. She wore it well. :)

We are still very lucky with Sadie. She is such a good baby! She is eating about every 3-4 hours during the day and is sleeping about 5-6 hours at night. She loves to be held, maybe a little too much. She will fall asleep in our arms and if we try to set her down anywhere, she will wake up and wonder why you are not holding her. Mmmm... I am guessing this is not good.

Sadie seems to enjoy bath time. Since she is still so small her body is not all the way in the water so we have to keep pouring water over her to keep her warm. But other than that she seems to have a good time and she smells so so so good!! I love the smell of fresh and so clean babies!

We were lucky enough to have Nate's sister and her family visit us. We were able to visit and catch up and then we went to dinner at El Pollo Loco. It was so great to see them and to have family visit. It has been really sad since my mom and Nate's parents have left. We really miss our families an cannot wait to be able to visit!!

I just thought this picture was so cute. We are learning about all the new baby gadgets, this being one of them. There are so many things out there for babies it is crazy!
Well Sadie has hit the little awkard stage of being too big for newborn clothes, but does not fit into her 0-3 month clothes, as you can tell by the picture. I guess she will have to wait until she is closer to 3 months to wear the skirt. And I promise she does have two legs.

All three of us went to church today for the entire time. Sadie did great. Slept through all of sacrament, I feed her during sunday school, then she was awake for half of relief society and then went to sleep. But the most exciting thing of the day was her outfit!! I am in love with her dress and was so excited that she (somewhat) fit into it. So of course we had to take some pictures of her in her cute sunday outfit.

Well that is all for now! I have to start work in a week and am not excited at all. I am going to take the next week and soak up all I can of Sadie because it will be so hard to leave her. And I promise that I will be better at keeping everyone updated! Love to All!

Grandma and Grandpa Fisher

Well week three is just about over here at the Fisher household with the little lady. We were lucky enough to have Nate's mom and dad come down here for the week. They got here Saturday afternoon and we were so excited!! Sadie is grand-child number 8 on both sides of the family. On Sunday we took a fun adventure. We drove to Tortilla Flats, a little place along Canyon Lakes. And when I say a little place, I mean population... 6. We stopped and had lunch and then had to try the "Prickly Pear" ice cream. It was a lot of fun and the scenary was so beautiful. Sadie was such a good girl and slept just about the whole way. That evening we went to Larry and Tere's house and had dinner with them, Noah, Giselle, and Rajko, and Nik and Anissa and their family. It was such a great evening with, as always, really great food. Isn't the future couple so cute!!

On Monday, we went to Babies-R-Us and Target. We got some really cute clothes and some bottles for Sadie. I cannot wait to be able to dress Sadie in all the cute things that we got for her. At the moment she is still in her newborn clothes, but not for long! She is one good eater!! And she is already getting little thunder thighs!

Tuesday we took a little tour of Arizona. We all went to the Mesa Temple and visited the visitor's center. It was a really nice trip and once again Sadie did great!! After the Temple we drove to Queen's Creek so Nate's dad could visit a old mission companion. Sadie was getting hungry by this time so I fed her in the car while the other's chatted. We were glad that we were able to stop and let Nate's dad get in touch with his old companion. Then we HAD to take them to Bahama Bucks to get a Bahama Mama Rama!! They put ice cream in the bottom of the cup, then shaved ice, then your flavor, and then this tropical whipping cream. They are so so good!! So good that in this one week, we have already had three. :)

On Wednesday, Nate's dad was flying out at 4:00pm. So we spent the day chilling and getting ready to take him to the airport. It was really sad to see him go. We loved having him here and he helped out so much. Thanks so much Dad Fisher!! We Love you.

Thursday Nate had to go to work for a full day. The last three days he was able to just go in for a few hours and then come home and spend the rest of the day with us. So thursday we just chilled at the house and waited for Nate to come home. Then we got ready and we went to see Harry Potter!! I was so excited to finally see it since it came out the same day Sadie was born. Sadie was so good in the theater and did not wake up once. After the movie we went to Applebee's for dinner.
Friday, Nate only went to work for a half day since he missed all of us so much! Since we had gone out the night before we stayed at home and hung out. We ordered Pei Wei ( like P.F. Changs) and watched a movie.

Saturday was another sad day. Nate's mom had to go home. :( She flew out at 1:30 pm. We had the morning to get ready and make sure that everything was packed. Nate's mom was so helpful the entire week, cooking meals, doing laundry, cleaning, and most importantly hanging out with us and holding Sadie. On the way to the airport we had to stop one more time to get another Bahama Mama Rama! (Sorry Dad Fisher, wish we could have sent one home for you). It was really sad to see Mom Fisher go. I'm not going to lie, there were some tears shed! Thank you again to both Mom and Dad for sharing this week with us and for everything you did! It made us really miss home and family. We hope that we will be able to visit soon and hope that you can come again soon! We love you!!!
