The Weeks in Review

Just when we thought life couldn't get any better along came Saige! We welcomed our beautiful daughter on July 1, 2009 at 4:32 AM. Weighing in at 7 pounds, 10 ounces and 19.5 inches long. We feel so blessed to have her in our lives and to share such love!

Grandma Julie gave Saige her very own tent! Perfect for peek-a-boo!

And Grandpa Steve made Saige her very own chair! It also doubles as a stool which we're hoping Saige will be using very, very soon for climbing up onto the potty!

Saige's First Step!

Saige took her first step today! Now it's really official - we have a toddler!

Thursday, July 15, 2010


Today Saige had her 1 year check-up. Doctor confirmed it - she's doing great! She now weighs just over 23 pounds and is in the 70-75th percentile for both height and weight. Saige is ahead of most with regards to her teeth - she now has 10 teeth, 2 of which are molars!

Still not quite walking but she's darn close! But even though she can't walk she can still crawl at lightning speed and get into EVERYTHING!

Happy 1st Birthday Saige!

We've been stalling a bit in posting the photos of Saige's birthday party(s). This is partially because we've been out-of-town, but partially because it's still hard to believe.... our little baby is one! This birthday marks the end of babyhood and the beginning of toddlerhood. Crazy!

Crazy to think that just one year ago we were meeting our beautiful daughter for the first time. Crazy to think that just one year ago we became a family of three. Crazy to think that our little baby is now talking and almost walking. Crazy to think that there was ever life before our Saige.

In this past year we've watched as her personality and looks developed. We now have a vision of what she'll be like as a child, a teenager, and even an adult. She'll be a blue-eyed blondie, with a mind of her own and a happy disposition. She'll be a social butterfly and not one to be shy around others. Maybe a bit of a tomboy too.

Saige is now soooo close to walking! She's walking around furniture and can push her walker-car thing around. She's also able to balance without holding onto anything for a good 30 seconds. We're guessing she'll take her first step any day now. It's so funny... we claim we don't want her to start walking, yet we constantly encourage her.

As for talking, Saige is being funny..... A month or so ago she was saying several words (Dada, kitty, yum-yum and Mama). Now, it's only Mama. Mama, Mama, Mama..... We know it's just a phase but Mama is all she'll say. Poor Dada.

Saige had two birthday parties. The first was here in Seattle. There were babies everywhere! Saige got her first taste of sugar and she LOVED it. The second party was in Mt. Shasta at Grandma's house. Again, the sugar was a hit! At both parties Saige had adorable bunny cakes. Saige is so lucky to have such wonderful friends and family to celebrate with her!

And speaking of friends and family, we must give a special thanks to everyone for their love and support during this past year. We survived! And we did a pretty darn good job if we do say so! But we couldn't have done it with out you! Maybe love is blind, but we really don't remember this past year being so tough - Terra never really experienced any exhaustion, Clif and Terra got along great and still managed to find some time together, and they both kept up a social life. Not bad!

With the closing of year one, we're now looking ahead to the new adventures we'll be having with Saige. We're so lucky!
