2 Links Remain

We have been counting down the days and somehow in a blink of an eye, we are down to 2 days until baby brother arrives.

Brag A Little

Just a quick update

  • consistently spells her first and last name correctly.
  • can identify her first name in print.
  • can identify all the letters of the alphabet (even in a random order)
  • counts everything and can count to 29 (when she gets to 29, she says 29....20! She doesn't believe me that the next number is 30)
  • knows her birthday.
  • is obsessed with birthdays and always wants to know whose birthday is next.
  • will take her clothes to the laundry room.
  • will clean up her toys, but needs a lot of encouragement.
  • is always up by 6:30AM.
  • goes to bed between 7:00 - 8:00PM.
  • likes to look at books and understands that the letters on the pages make up words. (When I ask Sadie to read to me she says, "But I don't know the words!"
  • likes to help with laundry. (Sadie helps sort laundry, load the washing machine, and pushes the buttons on the washing machine.)
  • loves the Chipmunks and sings Vacation (all the time)
  • is a mover and a shaker.
  • can put her shoes on the correct feet.
  • likes to pick out her own clothes in the morning.
  • will not jump in the pool at swimming lessons or at her Grandparents' house.
  • loves to snuggle.
  • enjoys eating popcorn and watching movies. (At home or at a theater)
When I was looking at pictures today while working on her Shutterfly album, I was so surprised at how grown up she looks now versus last year. It is amazing the change in one short year.

Sadie will soon be a big sister and I think she will be fabulous! Her brother is one lucky baby to have her as a sister!

21 Links to Go

The countdown has begun. We have 21 links to go until baby boy Jones arrives. To help Sadie understand how long we have until her baby brother is born we have created a chain of links. Each link equals one day and every day we remove one link and talk about being one day closer to the birth of baby brother.
