Sadie's now 15 months old. These past couple of weeks, she's suffered from a croupy cough, double ear infection (with fever for 3 days), and now the snottiest nose ever. She now have 12 teeth. Front 4 on top and bottom, and now 4 more molars. Whew...it's no wonder she's been sick.
She weighs a little over 24 lbs, and is 32 inches long. She's now officially HALF my size. She's gonna be a tall girl for sure. She's still in the 90th percentile.
As for me, since August I've lost almost 40 lbs. Yep! It's true! I've been a part of two weight loss contests, the first in the fall up to Thanksgiving, and now up through April 9th. It's helped me SOO much. Me and my "prettiest losers" are having a great time. They're my strength! I'm so thankful for my Praise Team girls. Their prayers, encouragement, and constant support are getting me through this weight loss! I've also been attending Jay's Boot Camp for the past 2 1/2 months...and THAT has helped a TON! I love it!
Daddy's doing great! He's super busy, I'm super busy, and baby longs for nights when we're both home at the same time. She looooves when mommy and daddy are together with her!
That's it for now. I have to figure out how to upload my Iphone pics so I can show you how big she is. And of course, I may have to have Craig take a pic of me... :)

She's clapping now, too. After her 2nd cousin Rhealyn's 1st birthday party, she decided she needed to learn how to clap like everyone else. She thought maybe she'd get some presents, too... Rhealyn claps, she got a present... Sadie claps, nothing, but awwwww... Funny!
Into mommy's purse!! Whoo hoo, lip gloss and jewelry!
Trying out my new ride... Eeeerrrkkk...slow down!!

The food was amazing - the only place I've ever been where they serve two, sometimes three types of potatoes at every meal. I was in LOVE! Can you believe we didn't gain ANY weight...WE WALKED SEVERAL MILES per day!!! Otherwise, I'm not sure I'd fit in my clothes to get home. Sadie LOOOOVED the food. She ate off of our plates most meals, especially our desserts. She also had THEIR baby food... in which she gobbled up every time! Her diapers were unbelievable!!! Yesterday, she had FOUR dirty diapers...she's just trying to get it all out of her system! She's probably the one who gained weight! She left a baby, and came back a little girl. She's pulling up on us now and standing!!! She's crawling backwards!! She's sitting longer than ever! We saw her develop more in Ireland than here at home. Her hair even looks like it grew an inch!
She was the STAR of the show EVERYWHERE we went. Even strangers commented that she was "GORGE"...short for Gorgeous. Literally, everywhere! Waitresses, people in the elevator, people in the airport, people on the plane... EVERYWHERE. We know we have a pretty little girl, but boy was she popular. She is SPOILED now! She was held by EVERYONE on our trip. We will have pics soon...we have A BAZILLION to download... be looking out for it!

She now has TWO teeth, still working on the top ones. These have been tougher on her than the first two... I was hoping they'd come in before we left for Ireland... We still have 10 days as of today... So we'll see.
She had her first ear infection last week... It was caused by her allergies, which were caused by her teething. The fun thing with this one... boogers literally coming out of her eyes. We thought maybe she had pink eye... No. The doctor said her sinuses were SO backed up, that boogers were coming out of her eyes, b/c they had nowhere else to go... YYUUUUMMMYYYY!!! One dose of Amoxicillin, the gunk was gone. I'm a believer!
She's really trying to scooch her way around right now. She definitely finds her way around her crib. One minute she's got her tooshy sticking in the air in the upper right hand corner of the crib, the next minute, she's on her back in the lower left hand corner... kicking the monitor. Lovely sound at 2 AM.
Last night she went down at 9, mommy tried to wear her out...she's been going to bed around 11 or midnight for about a week or so. She was exhausted. However, she slept until 1...and wanted to play. She would not go back down. Really cute sounds coming from the monitor, but not at 1:15, 1:30, puking at 1:45, crying at 2, playing at 2:15... I was utterly exhausted this morning. And b/c Craig goes to work so early, I got her and me ready by myself this morning... My hat goes off to single moms... you guys rock. B/c there are days, I'm not sure I'd know what to do without Craig's help! It was by the GRACE OF GOD that I got up by 6:45, got myself ready by 7:15, woke her up at 7:20, bathed her by 7:30, fed her at 7:40, burped her 3 times (wow for her), and was out the door by 7:57 to go to Daycare. That's all while running my clothes in the dryer to UNwrinkle, making sure the humidifier was emptied. I never got to undo her sheets with puke on them... but hey...I was doing good to do the humidifier.
B/c I'm working Mother's Day Out Summer Camp Mondays and Wednesdays, it's really hard for me to get her to daycare by 8:15, and back up to the church by 8:30. I'm telling you, God's hand guided me all morning. All while feeling as though I needed to puke, as I had caught Craig's bug from last week. I would say I was proud of myself...but it was truly God's hand in it!!!
