Boys have tails!

Apparently they do co-ed potty breaks at Saige's preschool. We learned this after she stood in front of the potty and said "boys go pee-pee like this" while giving us a demonstration. Then, she announced that "boys have tails!"

That's right Saige, keep thinking that.... boys have tails.

First Broken Bone!

While playing at the park, Saige fell and broke her collar bone! While breaking a bone is never fun, we have to say this hasn't been that big of a deal?!? Saige cried for a few minutes after her fall, then got up and started smiling, playing and laughing again. After a few hours of continuing to wince and say "Oww-eee!" we decided to get her checked out. At the hospital we thought for sure we were wasting our time, as we watched her run, draw on a whiteboard and point at the fish in a tank. But then, low and behold, the doctor told us she'd broken her clavicle all the way through. Since being home she slept through the night and continues to be happy, happy, happy! All we can say is, she is one TOUGH kid!

2 1/2 and full of life!

Our little Saige isn't so little anymore! There isn't a drop of baby left in her now - she's 100% kid! Potty trained, talking in sentences, going to preschool..... she's a kid!

So, before describing how smart Saige is, let me state that it's not just ME being her mom and thinking she's so smart. We hear every day from people who meet her (teachers at her preschool, friends and babysitters) that she is SMART. Not only is she very verbal, but she has a comprehension of the world that is astounding. At 2 1/2 years old, here a few of the things she knows:

- The entire alphabet, including words that start with various letters.
- How to spell her name.
- How to negotiate. Meaning if you give her one piece of candy, she'll ask for two. Give her two and she'll ask for three. Give her three...... you get my drift.
- The names of EVERYTHING. From cement trucks to the Space Needle to xylophones, she knows it all.
- Saige also knows her birth date, last name and the city she lives in.

A few recent quotes of Saige's:
- After she lets a loud fart, Mom asked "What do you say?" Saige replies "Thank you Fart!
- After seeing our friend Annie at 9 months pregnant, Saige proclaims "Annie can't fit in an elevator!" Then, a few weeks later, after she'd had the baby Saige said "Annie can fit in an elevator now!"
- When asked what her favorite candy is she replied "Saige's!"

Saige now has nicknames for everyone. Mommy is also known as "Mom-ya" or "Mommy-Pod" and Daddy is known as "Dad-ya" or "Daddy-Pod." Tica is "TicaBell" and Love Bug is "Lubby."

We're mercifully past the mommy-only phase. Saige is now equally content to spend time with her daddy and showers him with hugs and kisses. She also insists he gets her out of bed in the morning (mommy's favorite). She now also sees Daddy as her "protector" and wants him when she's scared or had a bad dream.

All in all, we're doing great! Cruising into childhood at mock speed and loving every second of it!
