The last time I wrote a Sadie update was when she was 11 months old. So much has changed since then!
Growth Sadie is 21 pounds and 30 inches tall.
Wearing 12 and 18 month clothing and size five diapers.
Personality Determined, silly, opinionated, and cheerful.
Eating We’re still nursing about four or five times a day. Sadie isn’t super into solids (she looses interest pretty fast and wants to play 24/7!), but does well eating scrambled eggs with cheese, toast with jelly, smoothies, yogurt, crackers, spoonfuls of peanut butter, and sweets like cookies and cake.
Nicknames T and TT (which is short for Tot, which is short for Sader Tot).
Sleeping She generally goes down for a morning and afternoon nap that lasts between 45 minutes to two hours (<– two hour naps happen like once in a blue moon, but are lovely when they do happen!). We try to put her to bed at 7:00 pm and she usually wakes up between 6:30 and 7:00 am.
Looks Like A mix of Jimmy and myself.
New Skills Sadie is climbing everything, running, and saying words! She can say mama, dada, cat, May May, ball, book, baba, night-night, and yum. She knows sign language for “more” and “all done,” can point to her ears and belly button, and can wag her finger and hum no, no, no (to the pets, LOL). She also knows how to give kisses but is very selective about doling them out.
Likes Reading. From the moment she wakes up, Sadie wants to read books. She will say “book” like a question and point at her bookshelf. She likes to pick out books and bring them to us to read. She definitely has her favorites, too. She likes anything with flaps that lift, sounds, and touch and feel-type books.
Other things Sadie likes: Mavis and Malcolm, balls, waving at people, bath time and water, other kids, going to the park, phones and technology-type things, sled riding, electric toothbrushes, blankets, purses and bags, having her temperature taken, climbing things, blocks, her grandparents, going on walks in her umbrella stroller, being outside, taking medicine, trying to put on shoes, dog leashes, playing on the couch, pretending to cook, the vacuum cleaner, the blender, putting hats on, washing her hands, being held, being chased, going to the library, and baby dolls.
Dislikes Waking up in her crib, diaper changes, having to stay in her carseat or highchair for more than a few minutes, not getting attention from mom and dad, and us walking away from her.
Favorite Products Umbrella stroller, Babies Love books, Oxo Straw Cup, Fruit Feeder, Babyganics hand sanitizer, Huggies Little Snugglers diapers, Huggies Natural Care wipes, stacking blocks, Step 2 kitchen set, Noisy Baby Animals book, Munchkin Snack Catcher, GoGoSqueez pouches, Melissa and Doug play food, and Minnie Mouse ride-on airplane (<— affiliate links).
Notes Sadie had an amazing first birthday party in September (that I should post about at some point, haha), a sickly Thanksgiving, and a lovely Christmas. She has slept over at my parents’ house twice now (once when I worked a Walmart demo and once when Jimmy was in the hospital), my in-laws and sister-in-law have babysat her a few times, and she currently has her second ear infection, but is taking the antibiotics like a champ. She also has a mouthful of teeth!
I think that’s all for Sadie at 15 months! She has grown into such a sweet and fun little blessing and we love her so, so much ❤
What an amazing update on Sadie! It made me laugh and cry. I feel like its all happening WAY TO FAST! I’m so proud of you and how well you and Jimmy are raising Sadie to be such a sweet little girl, and most importantly – in the LORD! I’m so happy that she likes staying here with Dad and I, and that we have so much fun with her. She is non-stop, as you mentioned, and I’m literally exhausted when she leaves. I don’t know how you do it beautiful mama!!
Keep up the great work at being an amazing mother!!
I miss her!! Reading all this and seeing the pictures makes it worse!
I love you Allie!
That is so stinking cute that she with say book and point to her bookshelf! As a huge bookworm I love when kids enjoy reading too.
That first picture of her makes her look so grown! She is at such a fun stage! She is growing and learning so fast right now. I love how much she loves reading. Definitely a favorite of here too. 🙂
Ugh I freakin’ love her!! She just gets more & more adorable each post. So freakin’ cute that she wags her finger & tells the pets “no no no” & that she’s selective about her kisses. 😂 Glad to hear she had a wonderful first birthday! Can’t wait to hear all about it whenever you have the time to share. ♡
