Some Updates

Well, it has taken me a while to do it, but I am finally updating the blog!! Hooray! These past few weeks I have been sewing sewing and sewing for a lady that gave me a bunch of fabric to make her some clothes for her. Mostly little jumper type dresses, but I just gave her 6 tonight and it feels good to have it all done. Well, not really, I still have about 7 or so to make, but I am going to take a little break I think. So I finally have a free evening to post some pictures from Halloween. We were kinda bums this year because I was pre-occupied with this other sewing project so Rob and I didn't even dress up. But Sadie was a little Minnie Mouse Ballerina. So Cute! I made the little ears and put the ribbon up her legs to look like ballerina shoes. The actual costume is from her grandma Kevan. She was the cutest little Minnie Mouse there ever was!

We missed most of the trick or treaters (not that we get that many) because we went and visited some friends and got back pretty late. But it was fun. We did get a ring on the doorbell at about 10:15 just as we were crawling into bed. I literally had just asked Rob if we remembered to turn the porch light off...and DING DONG! Rob answered and apparently it was some high school kids dressed as the Aquabats or something and they sang an entire song of theirs. I guess it was Mormon band or something. Rob knew who they were though so it is a good thing that he answered the door.

Here is some proof that Sadie was the cutest Minnie Mouse on Halloween.

We are just leaving the door and she already has candy in her hand. Sheesh.

CHEESE! This was the best we got. See the pink NERDS in her mouth. Yeah.

Daddy was helping her get ready.

So this post was entitled updates wasn't it?! Well, one update is that SADIE IS POTTY TRAINED!!!! Seriously. Like completely Potty trained. I totally didn't expect it to happen so fast, but I guess she was just ready or something. I literally bought the potty on a Saturday and didn't really start trying to teach her about it until tuesday morning(although and Sunday morning we got lucky and she actually went on the potty) By Thursday she was pretty much good. Since then there have been 2 accidents and one of them was because as she was sitting down on the potty, Rob called and she got distracted and started dancing. I guess she forgot that she had to go. Ha ha. But seriously. It is awesome. I didn't even really do much at all...she just caught on really quick.

This is a picture of her standing in my shoes next to her little potty. Don't worry, there isn't anything in it or anything, and her dress is wet because we were playing with water in the sink. We are so proud of her!

Update #2- I am teaching Sadie how to clean the house. Just kidding. But the other day we did have fun pretending with water. She is very good at getting everything wet, just not wiping it up afterward.

My parents were in town for a weekend and Sadie just loves her grandparents. The entire day after they left, every time that she heard a car outside she would yell "grandpa" and run to look out the window. She was so dissappointed when he wasn't actually outside. Thats ok though because we will be in Arizona visiting them in a few short weeks for Christmas.

Here are some pictures of their visit.

I know this isn't the most flattering picture of Sadie, but i just had to show that my mom painted her toes. This is her blowing on them so they don't get messed up by her touching them. Notice Sadie is wearing her Big Girl Undies!

Grandpa and Sadie on the swings!

Sadie went down this slide with Grandpa soooo many times. She was just loving that he would go down with her because I usually just make her go down by herself. By the time she was done on the slide, her hair was sticking straight up!

More slides with Grandpa!

And finally the last update...

Sadie is going to be a big sister!!! We are so excited to add one more person to our little family. I am due May 1st and we couldn't be happier.

I guess that is all of the updates for now. Hopefully it won't take me another 2 weeks to update this thing!

Our daughter is so cute! She gets it from you. Oh, and I like the picture with the hair sticking strait up. Maybe she'll start a new fad?

Lindsay said...

That is amazing that Sadie was potty trained so fast. We like the idea that Sadie will be a big sister.

Congrats on Sadie's adventures! When they're ready, they're ready. It took me a few tries to figure that out with Aria. Excited for your new baby! When do you find out?
