Sadie at Seven Months

I’m currently writing this when Sadie is almost eight months, but hey–better late than never, right?! Here’s what has been up with little Sader Tot during her seventh month of life.

Growth Sadie is now a little over 15 pounds and is 26.5 inches tall.

Wearing Six and nine month clothes and size three diapers.

Eating Sadie is still mostly nursing, but enjoys a good cob of corn every now and then, which is funny because I was obsessed with corn while pregnant with her. She really likes to feed herself with a spoon and seems to enjoy yogurt and some purees!

Personality Our little gal is happy and silly. That’s the best way I’d describe her!

Nicknames Sader Tot, Tot, Totling, Tottle Berry, Tottle B, Todd, Toddy, and Mini Jimmy.

Sleeping Sadie is beginning to sleep a bit more at night! Or maybe we’re just getting better at sleep training, lol. We put her down around 7-8 pm and she usually wakes up at 11 pm and sometime between 2-4 am. Then she’s up for the day at 6 or 7 am!

She’s taking two or three naps a day of varying length. She’s doing much better with sleeping in her crib, too! We love looking on the baby monitor and seeing the crazy positions she ends up falling asleep in.

Looks Like Her dad! A few people have said she looks like me, but I think she mostly resembles Jimmy.

New Skills Sadie is sitting up really well and so close to crawling. She dances to music by shaking her head and moving her body and it’s absolutely adorable. She also is trying to climb everything! She has continued to babble more this month, too.

Likes Being in mine or Jimmy’s arms as much as possible, her toys, books, Baby Einstein videos, our pets, taking baths, putting anything in her mouth, sitting in her highchair, being in her carrier, and being outside.

Dislikes Being put in her car seat, having her head and arms put through clothing, and seeing me walk away from her.

Favorite Products Puppy stuffed animal, ball pit, baby carrier, stroller, school bus xylophone, stacking rings, shopping cart cover, and high chair.

Other Notes I’m not sure when right or left handedness is determined, but we think Sadie might be a leftie. She has two bottom teeth and we thought more were coming in earlier this month, but nothing yet. We’re thinking her eye color is hazel at this point. She has a little bit of separation anxiety with me, even to the point of not wanting Jimmy to hold her at times.

Last but not least, she met her cousin, Remi! My brother and his wife welcomed their daughter on Sunday and baby Remi is doing great! She had a full head of hair and Sadie was obsessed with touching it, lol!

I think that’s everything for month seven! It was a fun one for sure. We are so thankful to the Lord for Sadie and the blessing of her sweet little soul ❤



  1. Aww, Sadie’s such a little cutie. 🙂

    Her dancing sounds so adorable too. It would be fun to see that on a vlog!

    Congratulations to your brother and his wife on the new arrival. How did Sadie react when you held Remi? I remember when my sister held my brother’s new baby, and my sister’s baby started to cry almost as though she was saying “hey there, I want a cuddle too!”

    1. Thank you, Grace! I will totally have to get Sadie dancing into a vlog! I’ve been thinking about filming one soon since it has been quite some time since I last vlogged!

      Sadie fussed when I held Remi, lol! It could have been because she was tired, but I think she was a little jealous! I can totally see how it would be the same situation for your sister with your brother’s new baby!! It’s crazy how they realize who we are in relation to them at such a young age!

  2. Those stuffed puppies from Amazon are adorable! No surprise that she likes dogs. 😉 And you know, from pictures I really see a lot of both of you in her! At first glance she looks so much like Jimmy, but when I look again I see a lot of you. ❤

    1. She loooves those stuffed puppies! So much so that we bought her a second one, haha. The long arms and legs make it easy for her to hold it and she loves chewing and sucking on its paws, haha. Teething life!

      Yay! I love hearing you see some of me in her!

  3. That’s so interesting that she likes corn so much & that was one of your cravings! I do wonder if there is some connection there. So sweet with Sadie & Remi! Congrats to your brother and his wife! Loved reading this update, Allie ❤

  4. She’s so cute! What a cheerful little gal. I think she looks like the perfect combo of both of you. And I just recently heard that hand dominance is evident around age 4. No clue if that’s accurate or not.

    1. Aww, thank you, Amy! Cheerful is definitely a great way to describe Sadie!! I like that you think she looks like a combo of Jimmy and I. Yay!! I am so curious to find out if she will end up as a leftie by age 4!

  5. That’s SO cute that she likes corn & so did you when you were pregnant with her! I wonder if it will always be her fave?! 😂

    She totally looks like Jimmy but also a ton like you, too! The photo of her in bed with him is adorable, she is so tiny!! ♡

    Congratulations to your sister on the new beautiful baby!! 🎉
