Sadie Ann // 18 Months Old

Watching your babies grow up is a curious thing. At every age and stage I think to myself, I love this age, I wish she wouldn't grow up. I'm particularly loving 18 months. 
Sadie Ann is constantly learning. 
She looks, listens, observes, and takes in everything. 
She imitates words, sounds, and intonations. 
She uses signs and {mostly} follows directions. 
She loves exploring new things. 

This girl loves life. 

She says dada, kay-kay for Katie, and nana for mama. 
She loves going outside and playing in the grass or with leafs off of the tree. 
She's warming up to her sister - she gives her kisses, plays with her feet, and gives her her paci. 
Sadie Ann is a wonderful eater - some of her favorite foods are avocado, banana, 
canned beets, butter beans, sharp cheddar, and tomatoes. 
Her crawl is lightening fast. 
She is able to stand and balance for several minutes at a time. 
She's taking a couple steps and it's just a matter of time before she is running around our home. 
She loves riding her bike and helping bake sweet treats.  
She loves saying her prayers and shouting Amen! 
She feels all genres of music deep in her soul and lets her body show it - this girls loves dancing! 

Her personality, happiness, and love for life make every single day and joy just to be in her presence. I'm so fortunate to have such a blessing and a miracle in my life everyday. 

This 1 pound, 6 ounces 11.5 inch baby is now 17 pounds, 3 ounces and 28.5 inches long!

Happy 18 months, big girl!
