Note: We tried to post this last Friday morning (Thursday night), but Super Sadie woke up and well... here we are! It's the thought that counts, no?
Okay, so we didn't do so well with our Wednesday blog, but please stay with us here. Two more weeks until Mommy's summer break from school!
So I (Sadie) am officially 6 months now ...going on 7 months next week! How the ... did this happen?!?!? So what week am I now...? Well, who really knows, and Mommy and I are too tired to count tonight. But I will be 7 months officially on May 22nd! Wow.
So how has your week been?

Sadie's Week WHO KNOWS Update
Weight: Well, first ... remember how Mommy use to take photos of me on my back? Well, there is no stopping me now. Photos like that are hard to come by now!
Not sure about weight. I was a lil over 15 lbs at my 6 months check up (Mommy is too lazy / busy to look it up right now, wow). We are going to guess about 16 or 17 maybe?
Height: Not sure. We'll get back to you on that one. Actually both of these stats are written down on something that is in my closet, that is in the room where Max is sleeping... yep, Train Wreck family.
Health: Knock on wood again - almost 7 months, and I haven't ever been sick! (Meanwhile, brother has a fever this week.)
Sleep: I was doing really well at night ...but then Mommy moved me out of my bassinet, and then we moved. I've been waking up, and I've been wanting to sleep with Mommy. And Mommy has been too tired to do much different right now (hah! Tricked her!).
But Mommy is starting to slowly work with me more at night, and she said in a few weeks when summer starts, she is going to focus on it.
As far as at the Grandparents... I've been doing better at Mimi's in my bed. I think I like my swing at Ya Ya's. I have them all fooled, obviously.
At night I sometimes also roll on my tummy to sleep. Then crazy Mommy hovers over me, and she wakes me up.
Diet: Liquids - I've only ever had Mommy's milk! Yay for making it to 7 months. Mommy and I are shooting for a year.
I didn't have food until I turned 6 months - way to hold out on me. My first food was rice cereal that Daddy made (Daddy makes all of my food). I also have tried sweet potatoes, rice, bananas, and apples. We will try new things this week too. So far my favorite is apples. And sweet potatoes. I'm also eyeing Mommy's chocolate.
Social: I don't go too many places during the weekdays with the Grandparents, but Mommy and Daddy sure do keep me busy on the weekend.
Last weekend wasn't anything too unusual - we hung out a lot with family to celebrate Mother's Day (Happy Mother's Day to my Mommy and ALL the Mommies!). And we went to Froberg's Farm to pick strawberries! (My second time to go there). This time Mimi and Grampi went with us.
Clothes: I'm pretty much in 6 months + clothes, although still squeezing in some 3 - 6 months clothes. Tear! In these photos I'm in a Carter's outfit.
Baby Gear: Last weekend Mommy bought me a little seat to eat in (and sit in). Max is still in a high chair (although probably transitioning soon to a booster - so much easier to keep that crazy brother confined though... haha. And we will probably eventually buy me a new high chair, but we are temporarily in a small apartment, so a small seat works for now. And this new seat is SO much better than the Bumbo! We high recommend. So what is it? The Mamas and Papas Baby Snug! I actually preferred to get the seat that changed into a booster seat, but it was not available in the store or on-line.
Crying: I think I've been crying less at the Grandparents. Mimi has told Mom I haven't cried at all a few times.
But basically I like to cry (sometimes) if I'm not near Mommy. It keeps her in check!
Likes: So many new likes since we last talked! I love being on my stomach, rolling around, sitting at on my own, moving to the sitting position on my own, getting in crawling position...doing push ups and so on. I take baths with my brother now, and I really like swimming on my stomach. I have ZERO fear of the water! I can't wait until my first swimming experience. We have a pool at our resort home (temporary home) so we will do that soon (it's going in the 90s this week). I also really like playing with brother, and basically holding or chewing on anything.
Postpartum: From Mommy - not really too much new to report. I am looking forward to summer break to get some more rest and catch up on a LOT of things. I'm still losing hair, and still trying to get into a better eating and exercising habits. What are your tips?
Milestones: So many since we last talked! Many are mentioned above. I'm keeping Mommy, Daddy, and Brother on their toes (and me, sometimes in plank position). The biggest one this week is CRAWLING! As of Thursday, 5/16 - I started making small crawling steps. Then as of Saturday (5/18) I started crawling! So much easier to get places that way. I also had avocado for the first time on Saturday - the best so far! Serve me up a margarita with that next time, please.
What is Max Up To This Week?: What is he NOT up to this week? That is the question. My big brother was off and on feverish this week, but nothing alarming enough to take him to the doctor. He's talking up a storm, and he's making me laugh like crazy.
