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!
