Let me tell you about this little beautie! I love her... we love her! She has been so much fun! It's funny though. You think with your 3rd that you know everything there is to know. Hmmm. I was wrong. She has/had thrush. My other two didn't. What. a. pain! I've also had some nursing issues which have also never come up before. Ugh. Sadie also likes to spit up. A lot! Oh and cry... Every night. At 8 p.m. Without fail. This too is also new to me. What the?? People who have babies with colic.... I don't know how you do it. Seriously. I give you mad props! I, however know that I am so blessed to have a happy, healthy baby.
She has started to smile which melts my heart. She has the "Bradshaw" mouth. Long upper lip, tiny bottom one. She reminds me of my grandma. I'm sure she had her hand it that! ;-) Sometimes I think about how much she would love this baby and how she would have loved to hold her! But then I remember how she does and did. My grandma loved and held her before I did! How sweet is that knowledge?
Sadie is so lucky! She has so many people in her life that love her so much!
Anyway, she weighed in at a "whopping" 10lbs 11oz at her two month appt. last week! She is growing just like she should. She also had her first set of shots! (which do not get easier with each child, I might add!)! She is doing great and is so stinkin' cute! Now if I could just stay caught up on laundry! Man, who knew such a tiny little thing could produce sooooo much laundry! ;-)
Ok click HERE for a link for my photographer. She is a.ma.zing!
Click HERE for the headband info too! My friend Heather makes them and they are so cute!
Ben and I met almost 12 years ago. We dated for 3 1/2 years, fell in love at some point and then got married in the Las Vegas temple! We've been married for 8 years now and have two amazing kids with #3 on the way! I'm currently taking yet another break from school and working as a server in St. George. Ben is just busy being a teacher! Life for us right now is good!
January 11, 2012... Hiley has preschool at 9:30, it's about 12 mintues away. We're usually out the door at 9:25! Let's be honest, most mornings, I myself, am not ready. Anyway, on this particular morning, I was not ready. As I was dropping Hiley off, I go to get out of the car to help her. The conversation goes like this... H: Mom, don't get out of the car Me: Why? H: Are you going to go home and shower before you come back? Me: (cracking up!) Crap! Is this starting already? Yes, Hiley I will go home and shower...maybe! Haha. She cracks me up!
June 16th, 2011... We're driving and Benson says "Mom, Jesus made everything, huh? He made the Wal-mart, the bugs, the animals, the grass..." He is cracking me up with his Jesus questions right now but this one I had to write down! Love how he includes Walmart first.
October 27th, 2010... Benson is putting his spiderman costume on and says: Mom, why does this have boobs??! Me: What? It doesn't have boobs. Benson: Yes huh! Look! Me: No, those aren't boobs! Those are Spidermans muscles! Benson: Oh, ok!!
October 2010... Ben is fixing Hiley in bed late one night and whispers to her, "Hiley, your breath stinks." She opens one eye and says, " No, yours does!" Too funny!!
October 23, 2010... Ben takes the kids to get an ice cream cone at Artic Cirle. While in the drive thru Hiley says matter-of-factly, " I should get a job here." :-)
September 2010... Benson says: Mom, you like eat fresh? Me: Huh? What's that? Benson: You know, eat fresh! Me: No, Benson. What are you talking about? Benson: Look over there! The yellow sign. Me: Oh.... you mean Subway? Benson: Ya, Subway, eat fresh! Benson you are watching wayyyy too much T.V. :-)
June 25, 2010... Benson: Mom, remember when it said on the movie "there's a catepillar in my shoe?" Me: No, I don't remember that part? Benson: Yes, huh? The one we saw today... Me: Oh, you must mean "there's a snake in my boot?" Benson: Ya that's it!! :-D
June 1, 2010... Benson calls glitter "glibber". Too funny!
May 29, 2010... Hiley and Benson were arguing over something in the backseat. I'm not sure what Benson was about to do but all we hear is Hiley saying: "Do it, see what happens!" hahaha!
February 1, 2010... Hiley was combing my hair this afternoon. While she was combing it she said, "Mom, you look like an orphan!" Hhmmm, where has she heard that before? :)
January 2010... Benson: Mom, why is it raining? Me: I'm not sure? Benson: I don't want it to be rain-day, I want it to be Sun-day!!
September 2009... Hiley is 90% potty-trained! Yahoo. We still struggle with nights but I can handle that!
August 2009... After I gave Benson a haircut he said to me, "Mom, am I handsome or am I not?"
December 2008... While at my parents house for Christmas we had quite a few "grandma's" around. I think that sometimes its a little hard for Benson to decifer which is which. Anyway, my grandma was there and he calls her his "white grandma" because she, well, has white hair. One afternoon, he was playing with her and Hiley and Benson said, "Go on Hiley, go play with "black grandma"! We were all like what the heck?? Well, it turned out that he was referring to my mom who has really dark hair! We were laughing so hard!! I was very impressed though by his own little clever way of distingishing between his many grandma's!
October 30th, 2008... Benson says: Tigger and the Foo; Meaning: Tigger and Pooh. Benson says: Ouch my mose; Meaning: Ouch, my nose. Benson says: I pooped and I farted; meaning: I "sharted". Benson says: Pee in the Pan; Meaning: Peter Pan.
September 24, 2008... We're getting into the car this afternoon and Hiley is being sassy, as always, so Benson says to her "You drive me nuts, kid"!! Hhhmm, I wonder where he's heard that before! ;)
April 30, 2008... One day after Hiley turns one, we officially have a walker!! I can't believe it. She is still so tiny but looks soooo cute!! :) I can't believe it!
April 15, 2008.... Benson FINALLY goes pee in the potty!!! Hurray! I bought him a little seat to go on the big seat and he loves it. I'm so thrilled. We've been working on this for at least 6 months. We'll have to see if it sticks now!! Stay tuned to find out!
March 3, 2008.... We are all grocery shopping at Walmart today and Benson is just sitting in the cart. We have this little game we play.... I say "Benson" and he says "What" and I say "Whatcha doin'?" and then he usually says something I can't understand but today in response to this question he says.... "Just hanging out"!!! Not expecting that one! :)
February 3, 2008.... I walk into Hiley's room to find she has pullen herself up onto the side of the crib. Ah, this is new to me!! She has totally started to pull herself up onto things now.
Sometime in January... Benson tries to say the word "sucker" however his S's are a little like F's so we're in Pizza Factory where they have a nice little sucker display and to my absolute horror, Benson sees it and starts yelling for a "F*&^%$"! Nice.
January 31, 2008... Benson tries to say the word "testicle" and I laugh until I cry! Oh man, he's getting so big!!
