How are you? How was your weekend? We have so much to catch you up on! Max was hit or miss with his blogs last week, but we will do better this week (Sadie here) - or try at least. Mommy has been very busy with many things ... taking care of me and my Super Bro, gearing up for our big holiday trip to NYC for our 3rd Annual Houston Rockets Road Game Trip (our focus this week on our blogs!), Christmas, Max's 2nd Birthday Celebration, and more of course. Whew.

Sadie's Week Six Update:
Weight: Mommy thinks I am definitely 8 lbs now. Maybe pushing 9 lbs?
Height: Mommy guesses that I am longer (than before)!
Sleep: Not much improvement or change on this end. Some nights are good, and some nights are not so good. Well, I'm probably sleeping okay - not sure about Mommy! I still nap a lot during the day, but I have longer awake times. Mommy tries to keep me awake for "activity time" after eating time.
Diet: Mommy's Milk!
Clothes: About the same as last week. The outfit in this post is also from Target (from Mimi - thank you!). A lot of my hair accessories are too big or come off easily so I don't wear them too much. And Mommy is so use to having a boy ... so she isn't in the habit of putting them on me yet, but today I wore one! How do you like it? I'm not sure I know (remember) where it is from, but it may be from Gramby.
Baby Gear: Mommy finally ventured out with a double stroller the week leading up to my Week Six update (it was passed down from Mimi). It's a Chicco Stroller (the same as my car seat) that is similar to this stroller (this may be the same one). Mommy said it's HUGE ... and a bit of a pain to push around (depending on the place), but she also said it's nice to help keep us confined in one place (aka in jail!). What do you think? Do any of you with more than one have a double stroller?
Crying: About the same! I can't remember if I mentioned this, but I cry in my sleep. I like to keep Mommy on her toes.
Likes: I'm not sure I have anything new to share. I do like being held by Mommy a lot - esp at night sometimes!
Postpartum: From Mommy - Leading up to Week Six - about the same. The lack of sleep is probably catching up with me, but I am hanging in there! Week Six was a big week for me too because I had my postpartum check up, but we will talk more about that in the blog for next week.
Milestones: So many as always! Sadie here ... I had a playdate with Mommy's friend Sandy and her kids N and A. Okay, Max had a playdate and I slept ... works for me! (Thanks for having us). I also had my first outing (in the double stroller) with the Train Wrecks (Mommy and Max) at Rice Village. We met Mommy's friend Sarah and her baby O. We also had crepes at Sweet Paris Creperie. Mommy got s'mores crepes, can you really go wrong with that? And my brother wouldn't eat his (kids) Nutella crepes - is something wrong with that picture? On the weekend leading up to my Week Six Birthday, I went to my first holiday (or any for that matter) parade near Gramby and Pops house! I have some really fun milestones that happened after Week Six so stay tuned.
What is Max Up To This Week?
Big Bro Max started the Elf on a Shelf tradition recently (for the first time this year). Do you participate in this tradition? Max is calling his Elf "Shan-ta" (Santa) so Mommy thinks he is really just confused. Either way, Max is having fun ... every morning he likes to say "hide hide hide hide" (because the Elf is hiding). More on this Elf adventure soon!
We have lots more to share with you this week including our Weekend Update, Whole Foods Citrus Challenge and Recipes, our upcoming Houston Rockets trip and more!
