Happy first birthday to our spunky girl, Sadie Rae!
I must admit that writing this post has been so difficult for me. Every time I go to write something, the tears immediately start flowing because my little baby isn’t so little anymore. This first year has flown by and so much has happened in such a short time.
Sadie, you have already taught me so much about being a Mommy and I have never loved anything in such a fierce way as I love you. I thank God every day for entrusting us with your little life and that He blessed us more than we deserve!
It’s so hard to believe that one year ago today you came into this world! You were a little helpless person who is now a talking, toddling little toddler!
One year ago today you looked like this:
Today, you look like this:
Weight: 21 pounds (50%)
Height: 30 inches (78%)
Head: 46 cm. (75%)
On your 1st birthday, you love:
- Walking with Mommy & Daddy holding your hands (the only time we get to hold your hands)
- Dancing to music
- Stuffed Animals
- Flipping pages in your books
- Saying “hi” and waving to every stranger that passes
- Frozen blueberries
- Imitating us and learning new words
- Wrestling with Daddy
- Saying “hi” to the trees when we open your windows as soon as you wake up
- Head bonk kisses with Mommy after nursing
You don’t care much for:
- The car seat. You’re ready to turn around.
- Holding hands.
- Diaper changes.
- Teething. We won’t hold that one against you though!
- People you don’t know getting too close too quickly.
- Chee (Tree)
- Puh Puh (Pumpkin)
- No, no
- Boo (Book)
- Moo (when she sees a cow)
You’re uniquely you:
You are very outgoing and talkative. You either use the words you have, or babble in your own little language, but it is never silent in our home since you have so much to say. You say everything using your hands and lots of facial expressions too. You’re a little stubborn because we know you are plenty strong and capable of walking by yourself, but you think crawling is faster or Mommy & Daddy can lend a hand. You love making us laugh and you know you’re funny. You stop whatever you’re doing to dance to whatever music comes on and then resume your agenda. You’re simply a spunky little thing with a huge, playful personality.
