So this morning I had to take Sadie to the doctor's to check on her pneumonia. First of all I could not find my keys, still can't find them. So, Nate had to bring me his keys and I was late getting to the doctor's. Sadie didn't want to go to the doctor's but I told her she wouldn't have to get a shot and the doctor would just listen to her chest. Get to the doctors, all is okay, Sadie will have to go to Primary's to get a chest x-ray to make sure it's completely gone. No problem. But, the doctor notices I didn't get a flu shot for Sadie, whoops! We never got them growing up, so I forget to get them for my kids. Carson got his in November, but needed a booster (no big deal, he did fine).
So, Sadie has to get a shot, and she has a meltdown. An emotional, histerical meltdown. When the guy comes in to give her the shot, she is so histerical that they have to call in 2 extra nurses to help hold her down. During this whole thing she is looking at me and saying, "Mommy, please don't let them give me a shot," and I start crying. I couldn't help it I felt so bad and the tears just started coming.
The best part is that when we finally leave and get into the car, Sadie, who is still sniffling, says, "Mommy, I was really brave, huh?" and I could not help but laugh and say, "yeah, Sadie you were, and I am having a GREAT day!"

Okay, so when did Sadie become a little girl and not my baby? When did she all of a sudden grow out of sippy cups and become old enough to be dropped off at a birthday party? It all happened so fast. And when, this is the big one, did she become smarter than me? One day I'm teaching her how to count to 10, and the next day she's BEATING ME in the game "Memory." And trust me I've tried. I did beat her once, but only because I put Dora on to distract her while we were playing.

Why do our kids have to pick up on our bad habits? I can say "oh my gosh" once and Sadie is saying it 20 times a day. (I know it's not that bad, and sounds cute coming from a toddler, she was 2 at the time, but it's a little too close for comfort). But, then the few good habits I have, or try to have, they don't seem to catch onto. Like cleaning up, I clean up after myself, why can't my kids figure that one out?

So, let's go back about 4 years to the week before I had Sadie. My mom was in town and we went shopping at Gardner Village. At the candy store there, my mom bought some easter candy because it was half off (if you know my mom you will understand). One of candies she bought were these little balls. They had a hard candy shell, then a thin layer of creamy milk chocolate (I'm talking Dove creamy) and then a soft mint center. I ended up taking them to the hospital when I had Sadie, and while sitting in there trying to figure out nursing, watching daytime TV, I ate those sweet little balls like they were manna from heaven.

3. Thomas the train, he loves Thomas. He will play train for hours.... that's great!
4. "Blanket." He loves his blanket, mostly when snuggling and sleeping, but it kind of goes along with "Binkie" and "Monkey" in the good-night routine.
5. "Boots." What can I say, the kid loves TV. But not just any TV show, he could watch Dora the Explorer nonstop all day long! (I don't let him of course.) But the first thing he says when he gets up the morning is usually "Boots."

Well, we flew back from WA. on New Year's Day. It's always sad leaving my family, but also always nice coming home to our home. Here are some pictures from our visit in Washington.
We went to the Seattle Science Center and watched "Santa Vs. the Snowman" at the Imax theatre there, hence the 3-D glasses. I had a fun visit with some high school friends, Mo (middle) with baby Asher, and Rachel and her 3 cute kids. It was fun catching up and seeing their kids in person for the first time.
Sadie and Jayna (Ramie's daughter) got matching ballet dress ups from Grandma Adams, they had a blast dressing up and dancing together.
