Veggie Sadie

Just a few Sadie updates:

Earlier this month she went thru a phase of not eating anything AT ALL. Just a tiny bites here and there but would not sit down and eat a meal... well, that changed a couple weeks ago. I'm glad it did cause it got me worrying.
She's eating but is still very picky. She's picky, yes, but only picky between her meats, fruits and veggies. I mean, she LOVES her fruits and veggies and HATES her meats. Mike says she's going to be a vegetarian.... we'll see about that. I'm glad she's at least eating the healthy stuff. She loves apples, strawberries, bananas, oranges, broccoli, cucumbers, a little bit of tomatoes and carrots... those are her favorite. I have yet to try out new things with her. As for meat, she barely eats any... The only thing meaty she'll eat is chicken nuggets. We had chicken last night for dinner, she ate her rice and veggies but poked at the chicken. Not sure what to do to get her to eat meat!

When Sadie sleeps at my mom's, i'm gonna guess she's always with her Tita Feeya a.k.a "Ala" haha. This is her mitten that Sophia turned into a puppet. Sadie loves it and gets us to play with it all the time .

She is saying a lot of words and knows more than I thought she knew. The other day we were going thru her animals book and she listed almost half the animals that were in the book, I was surprised. The few she missed were hippo, panda bear etc. But she pretty much knew the basic animals.
Speaking of animals, she knows most of the noises the animals make. But when you ask her what a horse makes she says, "yeeehawww". She'll learn eventually.

She is getting to be quite the dancer and actress. She'll sometimes sit on the couch with me and we'll just make every face we can possibly make to each other. Her facial expressions are hilarious. She loves to dance like a ballerina which gets me so excited to put her into dance that much more! And she definitely knows how to wimper when things don't go her way. And when it doesn't, she'll walk away facing the ground with a pouty face and she'll shrug her shoulders. It's quite funny.

Come back Coady

we love visitors

This past weekend we had Mike's little sister and bro-in-law come visit for a few days. They arrived to a home with music blaring and no one being home at the time (Mike was at work and I had quickly left to pick up Sadie from my mom's)... but good thing the weather was nice oh, and the back door was open too haha

It was also Sadie's first time meeting Amanda and Coady. She was so shy at first, crawling in a ball and laying on the floor barely making any eye contact. But not even an hour passing by, she was all over the two. She LOVED them, especially Coady... pretty sure she forgot Mike even existed. Sorry Mike :P

Saturday, we ordered pizza and watched the fights.
Sunday, we lazed around for half the day, Mike took both Amanda and Coady out of the city to try his sled out for a couple hours. After, we went to the movies and watched Drive Angry in 3D -- it was an alright movie but it was a waste watching it in 3D i think... nothing very special about it being in 3D.

2 tickets to watch Drive Angry in 3D - $31.99
Popcorn and drinks - $14.34
Coady running up the escalator with drink and nachos in hand, tripping and trying to save his food therefore ending up with a deep gash in his knee - priceless.

So as we were on our way to the theatre, Mike and I get to the top of the stairs/escalator and as we're walking we a hear a crash. We look back and I see Coady pretty much layin on the escalator comin up with some nacho chips on the floor. He gets up limping towards the table with condiments on it and puts down his nachos and drink and rolls up his right pant leg up and all you can see is blood. He had run up the stairs, somehow lost balance or tripped and fell on the escalator. The edge of the escalator dug into his knee cap and it left a deep gash. It was so bad and so much blood coming out of it. It was nasty. All the while, both Amanda and Mike were laughing pretty hard (ok, I might have had a few laughs in there as well). Mike was totally enjoying it the most out of all of us I think. When we got home Coady cleaned it up and put a band-aid on it but it just wouldn't stop bleeding it. I was pretty disgusted looking it, I couldn't handle seeing all that blood. It left poor Coady gimp for the night and a bit the next day. Coady - now you know not to run up escalators :P

After cleaning up blood, we decided to play Monopoly - till 5 in the morning. It was a fun night tho.

Monday was Coady and Amanda's last day here. Everyone slept in pretty good considering we all went to bed at 5 a.m. We went to South Centre Mall and Chinook to do a little shopping. Sadie loved it, she was running around every where. Thank goodness Coady and Amanda were around cause I was running out of energy chasing her around. She is definitely a handfull, good thing she's cute haha. After we had a late dinner and just relaxed till it was time for bed.

So good having them visit. Mike definitely missed them. We were talking and he was saying how homesick he felt when they left and that if I had asked him if we could move up to Fort Mac, he would say "yes" just like that. We are excited to see the whole family when they come and visit when Mackenzie is born. It will be nice to see everyone again!
