Sadie Love

I was just sitting at the computer in our family room and Sadie was standing on a chair in the kitchen playing with some measuring cups on the counter. I peeked around the corner to make sure she was doing ok, and I caught her trying to climb up onto the counter. So I said "SAAADIE" in my firm voice and she looked at me and smiled really big. Then she made her kiss face at me(which looks like a fish face) and I made one back at her. But that wasn't enough. She climbed down from the chair and ran all the way to where I was sitting, all the while keeping her fish/kiss face on. Then she gave me a big kiss. Sigh. It was great. I love it!

Isn't it funny... when you have a kid, you take TONS of pictures of them! Since I got a digital camera right before going to college, I took so many more pictures than I had in my entire life. And then, I got married and Rob and I took lots of those unflattering holding the camera out in front of you pictures. When we had Sadie, wow...I seriously don't stop taking pictures. Sadie is such a good sport. I guess I don't take as many as a lot of people, but I take so many that it is hard for me to keep them organized. Anyway...that is just a long way of saying that this post is FULL of pictures! :)

This is the first day I put Sadie's hair in pigtails. It was so darling. Although, I couldn't get them even after three tries, so I had to just deal with it all day. That is, until she pulled them out at the park. But just look at her...she is growing up. Sigh.

Our friends built this cool "roller coaster" for a film thing. I guess to film moving shots smoothly, but when we go over and it is set up in the yard, the kids love it! Sadie seriously rode this thing for about 20 minutes. Ha!

We went to Wheeler Farm in Salt Lake while my parents were here. It is a pretty cool place for kids to see all the animals up close and it is FREE! There are things you can pay to do like pony rides or milking a cow, but we just walked around and fed ducks. It was a fun day!

Sadie loved hanging out on the air mattress with my parents. Her favorite was bouncing on it!

When my parents were packing up the car to leave, Sadie crawled in and wanted me to put the seat belt on. She sat in there a good 10 minutes (if not more) and had a huge smile on her face the whole time...well, until I tried to take the seat belt off her. he he I guess she just wanted to go home with her grandma and grandpa!

My dad brought this back inverter thingy with him so I could try it out. My back had been hurting pretty badly for a long time and so I hung out upside-down for a while. I still use it because surprisingly, it has helped my back feel better!

Grandpa and Sadie hanging out in the grass.

We took her to the water park again and she had a blast! Here she is trying to sit on the water squirting out from the rock. So funny!

This is one of my favorite pictures. Two of my favorite people looking good in the grass!

Whew! That was a lot of pictures. Check back tomorrow because I will be posting a video from the waterpark that is pretty funny! Have a great day!

Lacking the Motivation

I just really like this outfit. Sadie isn't making the best face, but her clothes are cute!

Lately I have been lazy. Well, not too lazy, but it seems I am lacking the motivation to get anything done. My days usually go something like this: Wake up around 6 or 6:30 (whenever Sadie wakes up...) and sit on the couch with her as she drinks some milk. Then after a while, I get up and get breakfast for the both of us and while she is strapped in her chair, I clean the kitchen. Then I am pretty productive until about 10 am when Rachel Ray comes on. I do things like laundry and organizing, or picking tomatoes from the garden. Then it seems like after 10 I have no motivation to get anything done. seriously. I sit around and play with Sadie, but that is it. Maybe that is why after a year and a half of living here, our house is still not all. he he.

In the evenings, I usually get out my sewing or crochet stuff, but it has been weeks since I have done any of that. Sigh. Last night I started getting a bunch of material out so I could cut out some patterns and start sewing, but after I got out the big mess, I really didn't want to do the work. So I just sat on the couch with piles of material surrounding me and kicking myself, because now I had to put it away. Weird.

That is why I am soo proud of myself tonight! I sewed a little dress from start to finish while I was watching Never Been Kissed. I didn't really want to get started, but once I did, it was great...even if I did sepnd more than half of the time ripping the seams where I messed up. It was awesome. I feel so refreshed. Maybe my motivation has come back! Hooray.

Anyway, I thought I would share a few cute things that Sadie does. She is such a sweet little girl. Randomly throughout the day, she will come up to me with her arms opened and say "huuu" meaning hug. She gives the best hugs too. And then after that, she will pucker her lips (it looks like she is trying to make a fish face) and want one of those from me too. I love it. And today I was reading her a book before nap time and one of the babies in the picture looked sad so she said "huuu" and hugged the book and kissed the baby. It was so sweet. I love that little girl! I just wish Rob were home all the time so he could see all of the cute things she does. I guess she is my motivation for most everything I do during the day. And I love it!

I really need to blog more!

I have been really lazy lately. It seems like I haven't been doing anything with my time these days except sleeping, cleaning and playing with sadie. I haven't picked up any of my craft stuff even though I really want to. I feel like I don't want to make a huge mess just to have to clean it all up before Sadie wakes up. Anyway...

I thought I would try to do better starting today! My parents came to town for about a week and a half and we loved having them. They always think they are just taking up space but it is just so great to have them here. Sadie loves all the attention. And we ate really good while they were here too! :) Here are some pictures of their visit.

She loved playing with uncle Scott. Well, I don't know how much she actually played with him, but she loved to give him everything that she found on the floor.

Grandma and Sadie playing in her "pool".

Grandpa and Sadie sharing some twizzlers.

Family picture after church. Sadie was not too happy.

The night my parents came, my Dad treated us to some frozen custard. Sadie really enjoyed eating it, but I think she enjoyed feeding it to everyone else even more!

Well, they have only been gone for about 6 days, and we already want them to come back!
