My little pioneer baby.

Some of you may know that Sage got her middle name Elizabeth from a pioneer woman named Elizabeth Jackson. One day in my boredom I was going through Sage's clothes and found this cute bonnet that used to be my mom's. She looked like the cutest little pioneer baby in it. Maybe, just maybe, she was meant to be a pioneer girl after all..she would have been the cutest girl in the wagon train.

one of these days we'll have pictures without spit-up :)

Sage: It's what cute is.

I couldn't resist putting Sage in her bikini so I could get a snapshot of her splashing in the tub! I think it's time we take this kiddo swimming..she LOVES the water almost as much as I love her in this swimsuit.

She does have feet..I promise..I'm just a bad picture taker.

6 months..REALLY?!

It's been 6 months since this not-so-chubbaroo entered our lives and flipped everything upside-down and into place.

Current stats are as followed:

Weight: 14lbs. 4oz. - 19th percentile
Length: 27 inches - get this..91st percentile! What a long little lizard she be!
Head Circumference: I'm not sure how big her head measures but it jumped from the 1st percentile 2 months ago to the 14th percentile this month! I think her brain has been a growin!

New accomplishments this month:
Rolling Over! - this is where the brain enlargement begins.
Holding her own bottle.
Sprouting teeth. - these still are just sitting there waiting to come through..we have now joined the number of families who have be-friended and now praise teething tablets..they are our best friends..if you ever have questions about how to calm a teething baby, we finally have the answers! Sorry to all the family who had to hear Sage screaming over Thanksgiving when we didn't have the answers.
Playing with the frog toy. - to all of you this means nothing but to Quinn and me it means quite a bit more than that. Since Sage was 3 1/2 months she's been playing in her exersaucer and has never been able to get the frog toy figured out. All you have to do is push down on it's head and balls spin around in it's belly..yup she finally gets it!
Sleeping without a swaddle! - another HUGE accomplishment. We're still working on shortening how long it takes her to fall asleep and how many times I have to go back and give her her Binky but it's coming along rather nicely.

To end I'll leave you with my newest favorite picture of Sage. My friend Jess Peterson took these pictures and we both thought of a baby on a Gerber bottle when we saw this funny face. What a silly kid she is!

Thanks for reading! We love you all and hope you have a Merry Christmas!
