Friday Favorites

Hi and happy Friday! What do you have going on this weekend? I will be doing some baking… surprise 😉Today I’m sharing some favorite things from my life lately. Let me know in the comments what you’re loving lately!

1. Taking Sadie on adventures. We visited Jimmy at work yesterday and Sadie loved seeing all the construction equipment at the shop! Other adventures lately have also included: seeing snakes at the creek (she had so many questions after that experience!), Starbucks dates, swim lessons, and pet sitting together. (more…)


Sadie at Two Years Old

We’ve got a two-year-old on our hands! Here’s what’s up with Sader Tot at age two.

Toddler eating snacks in bathing suit

Growth Sadie girl is 25 pounds (28th percentile) and 34 inches (64th percentile).

Wearing Mostly 2T clothes and size 7 shoes (her feet are big like mine, lol).

Personality Happy-go-lucky, cheerful, independent, and shy with strangers.

Toddler on Jeanette's Pier in Nags Head

Eating She nurses about four times a day and is a light eater with solids. She likes mac and cheese, peanut butter and jelly, chicken nuggets, yogurt, eggs with cheese, croutons, and smoothies.

Nicknames Sader Tot, Tot, and TT.

Sleeping Lately she’s been going down around 8 PM and getting up at 7 AM. She generally takes a nap after lunch for an hour or two.

Toddler at restaurant

Looks Like A mix of Jimmy and me and sometimes a bit like my brother when he was a toddler!

New Skills Sadie has been talking so much lately! It’s like language has started to click for her and she puts words together to make sentences and repeats new words we teach her. We started working on potty training and she was doing fairly well, but I think it was just too early so we are going to hold off for a little longer.

She’s great at feeding herself with utensils, goes up and down stairs well, and can wash herself in the bath. She started homeschool and has been learning colors. She knows a lot of sign language, too!

Likes School, stickers, balloons, our pets, her grandparents, wearing bathing suits, being chased, going to parks and playgrounds, reading, watching Clifford, picking out clothes to wear, putting on shoes, playing with baby dolls, puzzles, and play doh.

Dislikes Getting in her carseat, being put in a stroller, having her diaper changed, being told no.

Favorite Products Reusable stickers, disposable placemats, fine-motor hedgehog, sippy cups, flashcards, arts and crafts book, hand sanitizer, potty, reusable water activity pad, and Biscuit books.

Notes She has a nasolacrimal duct obstruction which makes her eye look glassy and glazed over but doesn’t bother her otherwise. I also think she is getting her two year molars and they are a doozy, lol.

I can’t believe Sadie is two! At the same time, I can hardly remember life before Sader Tot. I’m so blessed to call her my daughter ❤
