Niva went to the groomer for the first time today!
I figured it would help with her crazy shedding and I always enjoy the way a dog smells after a bubble bath at the groomer. Sadie had so. many. questions. about what kind of bath tub a groomer uses and what the process involves.
She keeps me on my toes with her questions! Her curiosity actually helps me learn so much. Sometimes I have to research a bit and get back to her, but I love that she is inquisitive. Also, Niva’s bandana was super impressive to Sadie. She was very excited to show Jimmy and kept calling it a “bamboo” instead of a bandana 😂
Sadie and I hadn’t been thrifting in quite some time, so we went to a new-to-us Goodwill and found a few gems! First up, we found my niece a dress for Resurrection Sunday.
We also found a collared romper for my nephew. Totally forgot to snap a picture, but I assure you it’s cute! Speaking of my niece and nephew, I am so curious to find out if they are going to have a little brother or sister in September!
Hannah and Josh have been calling this baby their “tie-breaker baby” since they have a girl and a boy already. I honestly have no feeling one way or the other of what the baby’s gender is. They find out next month!!
Sadie picked out a handmade dress at Goodwill and I love it. You just don’t see little details and handmade dresses like that much anymore.
Sadie continues to defy pretty much everything I thought she would be like when I was pregnant with her or how I thought I would parent her. When I was pregnant, I was pretty sure we would end up bottle feeding her. Nope, she never took a bottle. I picked out a cute cat pacifier for her before she was born. LOL. Not a pacifier baby.
She was absolutely going to sleep in her crib from day one. No…. she co-slept with us until she was around nine-months-old. I was sure her palate would be expansive when she started solids… and then she didn’t swallow solid food until she was around 11 months and is still a picky eater.
I was definitely not going to put her in super girly clothes. We were not going to do the glitter/pink/rainbow/unicorn/princess stuff. Her favorite color? It’s pink. She adores all things glittery, rainbow, unicorns, and princess-y.
I thought she would be shy and introverted like Jimmy and me. Also a big no. She’s incredibly social! She’s constantly talking to anyone and everyone. She gets me out of my comfort zone 😂
It’s funny how we think things will go as a parent or in life in general and I’m sure God laughs too. You know what, though? I’m so glad Sadie is a pink-loving, princess, picky eater, social butterfly. Because that’s who God made her to be! And she’s the best 😊
Okay, moving on from that tangent! Pittsburgh is currently in the weird in-between weather phase as we transition out of winter and into spring. It’s like the weather wants to be warm, but it’s also like no, just kidding!
Take this week for example: we had rain at the beginning of the week, sunshine and 50-degree weather today, aaaand we’re under a winter storm watch for tomorrow with 3-6 inches of snow forecasted 🤷♀️
Hopefully the snow isn’t too bad because my sister is moving this weekend! I can’t wait to see their new house 😍
