Baby Sadie
It baffles me when I check on her in the night and find a big baby in her crib.  My mind flashes back to, what feels like yesterday, when she was a tiny floppy head, swaddled infant. I feel like she has been a part of our life forever.  She is so curious. 

Her personality various every day; she can be the happiest baby on the block OR she can me the hardest baby on the block. When she is happy we have so much fun together. When she is cranky she spends a lot of time on my hip!  However, she smiles all the time and it is just a beautiful sight that I pray I never forget.  

Sadie Grace completes our family, she is dainty little tiny girl that we needed and all adore! Jake, Judd and Anna Kate love her SO much, it makes me so happy to see them playing together so much lately! Sadie is doing new things everyday, she is talking so much (we can understand one word so far, “Dada.” She is now walking when I am not holding her and she loves to drink out of a sippy cup.  

She has one bottom tooth and more coming soon-the drool is a sure sign, wearing a size 3 diaper, 6-12 month clothes. She is in the 90% for height and 25% in weight.

As of August 1, she was completely weaned. It was time to break away from this special bond that we shared for 9 months. My body helped her grow inside me for 9 long months.  I then provided food for her, for another 9 months.  It is a very bittersweet ending to an enjoyable path we shared. I must admit that we are both doing quite well with this adjustment.

I love you so much, Sadie. Thank you for teaching me daily how to give more of myself and to love with a love that is deeper than I have ever known.
