We got out the trusty Papasan chair cushion. We used this for Mili too. We did it more for Mili's head since she was very top heavy for a long time. With Sadie, we are trying to give the poor people that live under us a relief from the constant foot banging.
Just wanted to share our growing Sadie Beth's sitting pictures.
I got them out last night for two reasons....It was going to be warm enough to wear them and mainly because I have not done laundry so they were the only ones clean....smile.
Mili was elated to say the least. She absolutely LOVES them and doesn't want to take them off. We now have a request for some Spiderman "Jamas" as she calls them.
When I put Mili to bed last night she said, "Mommy, I love my new jamas and I wish I had a cape so I could fly high high in the sky." (the shirt actually has velcro on it for a cape so it probably did come with one but we won't tell Mili that). I DO wish these "Jamas" made her faster than a speeding bullet. It takes FOREVER for her to complete something these days.
Just thought I would share the pictures I took of her being "Super Mili" last night.

Sadie's head has improved but in this picture you can see how flat it still is behind her ear.
Some cute toes and FAT legs. I just want to EAT them!!!!
The Elvis look! (hair and all)
Innocent look (even though everyone in this house knows it is not true)
This is the same way I find Sadie every time she wakes up. She is trying to find someone to pick her up. She thinks if she makes eye contact then she's gotcha.
A wave for everyone back home in Arkansas!!!! I LOVE this face!!!

I just wanted to show off my hot hubby and tell you all what a wonderful job he is doing. It is hard work to get the pounds to drop off and I am very proud of him. He is wearing clothes that he has not been able to wear in a LONG time.
In Mili's words, "GO DADDY GO!" Keep up the GREAT work!!!
WhooHoo, His legs are ROCKIN' these days!
I LOVE YOU!!!
I asked Mili if she wanted to go out and ride her bike this morning and her response was, "No Mommy, the sun is too bright and I can't see." This poor child has her Aunt Aimee syndrome. She can not see in the sun and it actually debilitates her. She will cover her eyes with her hands and completely stop walking if the sun hits her eyes. I guess we need to invest in some good baby sunglasses for her. She ask for her sunglasses everyday that the sun is out.
Mili is getting good at riding her bike. She goes forward and backwards over and over until she gets bored. You know our balcony is only so big and I can't even imagine the funnest home video if I were to try to take both kids and the bike down the stairs for her to ride in the empty parking lot (I think I would pull out all my hair before I got down the several sets of stairs and to the back of the lot, well maybe not since I wouldn't have any extra hands to do so....smile). So for now, Mili just has to be a balcony bike rider.
Here is our caged baby....
Feet straight out, it cracks me up.
Happy and waving at Mommy.
Trying to throw paci overboard.
Hope you enjoyed our sweet caged animal.
You turned 7 months old yesterday. Time is really flying by and I love being your mommy more and more each day.
You are trying really hard to copy sounds and form some kind of babble that mommy and daddy will recognize.
Sitting with no help is becoming easier for you. A clothing basket is your favorite sitting place.
I love the way you cock your head to one side and give me the biggest toothy (or gummy) grin.
We haven't seen any teeth yet but you are chewing on EVERYTHING.
Cackling with Mili is one of your favorite activities.
You are EXTREMELY ticklish in MANY places and mommy and daddy take advantage of this often.
You are starting to show love to your Pooh Bears by giving them nice long hugs and big, sloppy kisses (or bites, which ever one it is).
It never fails, no matter what time I am eating it is your poopie time (such a nice aroma while eating).
Speaking of diapers, it is getting extremely difficult to change your diapers these days because you grab everything in sight and are trying to roll over at the same time. This usually results in a kadywampous diaper that will leak....smile.
We are going to start calling you "Rodeo" because you have a habit of swinging anything you get your hands on over your head like a lasso....too cute.
You love story time and would love to eat the book as well.
Eating your fruits and veggies has not yet appealed to you. You are very tight lipped when the spoon comes toward your mouth. I hope you will learn to love them like your sister does.
I love that you are starting to do my one syllable laugh, "HUH!"
When I put you in the bathtub, I love the way your legs stick straight up in the air. You soon relax and have an enjoyable bath time.
You are developing some of mommy's characteristics or quirks. You like the way the sheets feel on your bare feet.
I hope your headbutting will soon be in the distant past. My chest and daddy's arms can't take many more bruises.
The way you move your feet in circles reminds me of when Mili did that with her hands.
There is nothing like being woke up by you lifting both your legs and bringing them down on the bed. The POP is unbelievably loud in the middle of the night.
You are having some stranger anxiety and some separation anxiety already. I hope this will soon be over.
You are starting to recognize the signs for "milk" and "eat".
You are a delight and I am so glad God gave you to me!
I love you all the way to the moon and back and then some!!!

Mili sang "Jesus Loves Me" on the big stage in the big church today with her "Quarter Note" friends. She is little Miss Bossy these days. When she was practicing this morning I was taking pictures and she stopped in the middle of the song and said, "NO, Not yet Mommy!!"
There are two videos below. The first one is from first service and I took it. It is not as high quality because after almost three years with this camera, I still don't know how to use all the buttons. The one from second service Brian took with higher quality.
In the first video you need to listen for Miss Bossy. She says, "NO!!!" to the boy standing next to her (Clayton) because he is touching the microphone. She told me after the service that Mrs. Kimberly told them not to touch the microphone and he was touching it, Mommy. Then she looks over at James (the little boy on the other side of Clayton, 2 down from Mili) and says, "James, sing with us." So she is not only bossy but nosey, noticing that he was not singing at that present time.
Hope the grandparents are happy with ALL the pictures. Mili took the last picture of Brian and myself. I didn't even have to crop it (Brian has a funny look on his face because he is telling Mili how to run the camera, "push" is the word).
Hope your Easter was/is Fantastic and that you have reflected on how fortuate we are to have a loving Savior who gave EVERYTHING (including his life) in order to FREE us.

Here are some of the children who attend the school. The only boy in this picture is the family we helped the week I was there. We did repairs and painting on his home (1 1/2 hours away and his mother travels that everyday on a bus with him so he can go to school, GREAT mom
There is never enough coins for her to put in the piggy bank. I hope she always wants to give BIG to the cause of Christ.
