Yes, it’s been a while. I’ve been in the middle of launching my search product (beta releases in November, December and January; full release real-soon-now) and it’s been harder to keep notes for writing coherent posts.
Luckily, Sadie waits for no man, not even her Daddy, and she’s been out adventuring. She finds it easier to adventure when she has her hat on, so it stays on all around the house.
Sadie’s been mourning the passing of football season. Football is pretty much the only thing we watch on TV when she’s around, so she’s taken a shine to it. She enjoyed playing with her Duplos while the Bears were playing in the playoffs.
She gets to participate more when the Patriots are playing, though. She get all excited when the Patriots score a touchdown. (She’s also excited that her hair is long enough to be Pebbles’d up.)
A couple of weeks ago, Sadie moved from the Infant room to the Toddler room at daycare. Such a big girl!
It’s a little more pressure now, because she can’t just crush all the other little babies any more — they’re all bigger than she is now. They also won’t heat up her food anymore, so she’s getting used to eating her lunches cold.
The biggest transition has been around nap time, though. They changed Sadie’s nap schedule from “whenever she feels like it” to “1-3pm.” Sometimes this leaves Sadie a little sleepy during the rest of the day.
Sadie still likes to “play with” the cats. The cats still like to “run screaming.”
Sadie is still a good eater, though she’s starting to get pickier and pickier. This morning, we got her to eat pieces of an omelet — a big step forward. She’s good with her vegetables and her fruit, but she’s not taking as much meat as she should be.
She’s popped out a couple of more teeth in the past week, and several more are quite obviously poised to appear. More teeth should help with the meat.
Sadie is quite adamant about walking herself. She gets all upset when you carry her on the sidewalk at the gym. She still falls down sometimes, but she is definitely a complete walker now.
Sadie is also now obsessed with her books. Some kids like trucks, some like dolls, but Sadie likes her books. She’ll demand you read them with her over and over again. Current favorites (i.e., books I’ve memorized) include The End, Fairy Colors, Moo, Baa, La La La, One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish and Good Boy, Fergus. I highly recommend them all.
Sadie just started learning how to color. We set her up on her little red table with her magic markers (washable!). Then, we let her go at it.
She likes the blue marker the best.
When she’s done, she has created a masterpiece worthy of the refrigerator.
Another month (well, two) has passed and Sadie keeps changing. Every day is different. Every day is special. See you again next month!
