Sage is 11 Months Old..Look How Far We Have Come


I can't help but thinking about this time last year, how I was already on hospital bedrest, wondering how big our baby would be, would she be a boy or a girl, would she be ok, and now look at us. She is absolutely the best thing in our lives and constantly keeps us laughing. She has changed so much so much so quick. She is crawling all over the place now (which made these pictures almost impossible) and standing and walking around furniture and will even stand on her own for a second, I am sure she will be walking in no time. She FINALLY got her first tooth that broke through, I was starting to get worried, so I am finally feeding her people food. ALL THE MOMMIES OUT THERE, WHAT DO I FEED HER? I feel like such a dork for asking, but I don't know what is good and what isn't. I have started her on whole milk, and she eats bites of toast with jam and cheese, and sometimes some noodles. Are scrambled eggs ok? I have read that they can cause allergies like peanuts, in that case what the heck kind of birthday cake am I suppose to get her, tofu? She has quite the personality and keeps us on our toes. When she knows she isn't suppose to do something she shakes her head No and then sometimes will look right at us and do it anyways with a big smile on her face and a mishchivous laugh. It is hard not to laugh and stay firm. She is talking alot too. We have our premie assesment at UW in February because they fear that premies will fall behind, but I don't think we have that problem. She acts so much like an adult sometimes it cracks us up. We gave her some of our old cell phones and she pretends to dial and puts it to her ear and talks, she flips the pages in her book and pretends to be reading, and types away on her little laptop thing, just like Mommy. And she LOVES to dance, we even taught her how to hula since her room is Hawaiian and we play Island music in there.
When I think back on this year, I can't help but be thankful for how blessed we are to have such a healthy, happy, beautiful baby. Merry Christmas to everyone!

You guys are super blessed!! She is such a doll, and such a charector! She looks so much like you in those pictures I think Mia. Hope you guys have a Merry Christmas too! I am going to try, but I'm seriously doubt I'll make it to the 30th the way I've been feeling lol. At least I'm hoping I don't make it to the 30th!! I'm ready now lol. One more week and most likely they'd be able to go home with me as soon as they are born, so we'll see. Love you guys!
