Truth Tuesday.

Here are my truths/complaints/secrets revealed.
  • I want a house. Really, really bad.  Because when we get a house we can have storage, and 4 bedrooms instead of 2.  And we can have more kids.  
  • I want another baby.  Really, a house is the only thing holding me back.  Because I know that we can't possibly squish one more thing in this tiny 2 bedroom apartment.
  • I LOVE staying home all day with Sage but really would enjoy getting out once in awhile for some "adult" time.
  • My house hasn't been deep cleaned since Sage arrived.  I've organized and cleaned the surface of everything, but deep down, it really needs a cleaning.
  • I hate cleaning.  Which is why my previous truth is what it is.
  • My visiting teachers are coming over tonight, and I don't want them to.
  • I hate Utah for one reason.  The ridiculous cost of registering/inspecting your car, yearly. 
  • I'm scared to death of taking Sage off of baby food/formula.  I eat unhealthy as it is.  Now I have to try to feed Sage healthy?  I don't think I know how to do that.
  • I love food.  Chips, crackers, ice cream, hamburgers, fries, salads, popcorn.  Lately this is what I have been eating.  Go ahead and judge. 
  • My favorite show(s) are Grey's Anatomy and American Idol.  Quinn hates them both.  So I never get to watch them.  Unless I throw a tantrum and act like a child..which I usually do.
  • And lastly, I love being a mom. And watching Sage grow and learn and make messes...like below.

Yes it's blurry, but aren't all of my pictures?  I'm not a professional. I guess that's one more truth to add to my list.

Happy Tuesday!  What are your truths for today?

What do we do at our house?

We walk.

Quinn and I have been holding off on buying a gate to block our stairs for some time now.  The problem is with our stairs we'd have to buy a gate with a door on it and they cost $40.  Something we think is a complete rip off.  So rather than waste money on a gate that we'd only use for a few months we decided to teach Sage to climb the stairs instead.  The thing is, this girl can climb.  She's been playing at the base of the stairs for a few months now and has finally found the independence and freedom to climb them.  Granted, we still have to hover right behind her because she's still a little tipsy here or there, but the babe is awesomely coordinated, something she didn't inherit from her mother (who falls up the stairs, often.).

And Happy Monday!

As of late.

Lately I've been lazy.  And I mean really lazy.  Sage has been sick and not sleeping.  Then I got sick and couldn't sleep.  So the house is a mess and I'm still not up to fixing it up.  Eventually.

Last week Sage got a new tooth, her top left center.  And it's ridiculously adorable.  It's about as big as her two bottom teeth combined.  It's huge.  People now lovingly call her Buckwheat. Yep its that big.

Sadly, I don't have a picture of it. Because Sage hates having her face touched in any way.
So just imagine in your mind how cute it is.

This however, I can get a picture of.  Sage LOVES to stand up.  She pulls herself up to anything that she can and has now become quite a nuisance at messing everything up that she gets her hands on.

Here she is attempting to pull out Bobdog's fur, or yank on his tail, or poke his eye.  I'm not sure which. Poor poor kitties, lucky lucky Sage.
