And here we go again! Another month has snuck up on us. Saige is 10 months old today!
There was lots of celebrations today. We started out the day attending the 1st birthday party for twins, Liam and Grace. For those of you who don't know Liam and Grace, they are Saige's bestest friends. Watching Saige play with other kiddos her age was so fun! She's such a ham! We're still waiting for the "stranger anxiety phase" that everyone keeps talking about; so far Saige is a social butterfly - she loves meeting new people (especially kids!) and being the center of attention. No stranger anxiety for our girl!
Clif and Terra also celebrated the 5-year anniversary of their first date. Every year we go back to Bizarro, the restaurant we went on our first date. We reflected on all the great things that have happened in these past 5 years and how lucky we are. Who would have thought that 5 years after that first date there'd be a wedding, a house, a dog, and a baby!
Saige had many accomplishments this past month, with the most significant being her learning to crawl! At first she'd only crawl a few feet at a time but now she's truckin' Just this morning she followed Lovebug (the cat) all around the living room. She's also learned how to pull herself up to a standing position. There's no stopping her now!
Copycat games are a hit now too. You shake your head, Saige will shake her head. You clap your hands, Saige claps her hands. You wave, Saige waves.
We're starting to feel that the days of babyhood are almost behind us and childhood is creeping up on us. Saige is becoming more and more of a little girl versus a little baby. She's so independent and self-sufficent now! She crawls where she wants, feeds herself and vocalizes her likes and dislikes.
Day-to-day life with Saige has become much easier too. Not that she was ever a difficult baby, but now it's really easy. She's on a set schedule, goes down easily for naps and bedtime, sleeps through the night and almost never fusses. And there's always a smile on her face!
We are loving life!
