How was your week? Or WEEKS in our case? We are an absolute mess lately.
Moving in about a week. But beyond that ... we just need to make it until June! Or at least that is what Mommy says.
So I turned 21 weeks on Monday! And I have a big birthday this week - 5 Months on Friday. Happy Birthday to me! We will share my 5 Month Update soon.

Sadie's Week 21 Update
Super Sadie at 19 Weeks:
Super Sadie at 20 Weeks:
Super Sadie at 21 Weeks:
Weight: I'm thinking I'm pushing 15 lbs now. Or close to it. What is your guess?
Height: Maybe almost 25 inches?
Health: Knock on wood - I haven't even been sick yet (except a yeast infection diaper rash. Well, that sounds pretty sick to me!)
Sleep: I slept pretty great with Mommy when she was home with me for Spring Break. I need my Mommy! But the good news is ... I am sometimes doing better with the Grandparents during the week.
At night ...many nights I sleep through the night (from about 8:00 pm until about 4:00 am when I want to eat - sometimes later). Sometimes I wake up a few times. Sometimes at night I go down right away and just sleep - sleep - sleep. Sometimes at night I have a crying fit, but I eventually go to sleep.
One big thing that happened ... on the last Sunday of Spring Break (3/17) my LUCK ran out with my bassinet. Mommy passed on my (and Max's) bassinet to a friend that is having a baby in April. Bye bye Bassinet! For now I am in my pack and play, and I haven't really had any issues with it. Finally - hello, more room! Mommy was sad though to move on from my bassinet.
But she is now going to start crib shopping. We are looking for a modern white crib - not too terribly expensive. Any suggestions?
Diet: Same - just Mommy's milk!
Social: I was super social Spring Break week as you might have read in our previous post. This week I've just been with the Grandparents while Mommy is at work so I don't have anything new to report.
Clothes: Mommy washed all of my 6 months clothes (I don't have too many - hint hint hint Tia Tam and Grandparents hahaha ... also Mommy said she is going to spoil me with some new clothes soon. I do however have a lot from my brother, but Daddy keeps saying "she is dressed like a boy!" No, I am just liked a mini human. What does it mean to be dressed like a boy?). I'm still wearing some of my 3 - 6 months clothes, but she put away most of my 3 months clothes. Tear, Mommy says!
The 19th Week photo has an outfit from Gap. The next two Weeks the outfit is from Carter's. Mommy is a train wreck and put me in the same outfit both weeks. Actually she wants me to tell you, that she had a different / nicer (not just a onesie) outfit for my photos ...but I would either throw up or poo all over them. Mommy said she snaps photos when she can since she is also busy watching brother!
Baby Gear: Ya Ya got the monkey I am holding in many of the photos - Miyim Simply Organic Lovie. I love my monkey! What type of lovie does your baby have ...?
Crying: Well, the opposite of crying - I am smiling and laughing in the photo above - at my brother of course! He is really my favorite person. I always smile and laugh at him. Mommy has had a hard time getting a photo of me smiling (see: watching two babies), but she loves this one she caught!
Nothing out of the ordinary as far as crying for me... I sometimes still need to cry to go to sleep. If I cry during the day it's usually because I am sleepy.
Likes: I LOVE eating my toes now. I also love being outside. I love when Mommy wears me. I love to watch Daddy read at night during bedtime stories.
Postpartum: From Mommy - About the same. Hair falling out, and now my face is breaking out - joy! I'm still trying to now focus on watching my diet and trying to exercise more. It isn't easy to fit it in - esp working FT! Any tips? (Working FT plus two babies = not easy. Not fun. Not ideal. Anyone else agree?)
Milestones: I think the biggest ones are growing out of clothes (see above), and I am now eating my toes. I think we forgot to write down the exact date of this. Mommy says - Mommy guilt! I also sat in a bouncey seat for the first time at Ya Ya's house. Mommy's going to get a new one for our new (temporary) house. Mommy and I think we had one more bigger milestone, but now we are forgetting. (See trying to juggle working FT and two babies, above).
What is Max Up To This Week?: He continues to be obsessed with trains. Choo choo! He also now likes Curious George in addition to Caillou. And he's been playing in the Secret Garden at Ya Ya's. Oh, he also (for the first time - without Mimi) went with Auntie Dana to play with Cousin R at their house for a bit.
How about you? What are you up to this week?
