This Week's Obsession

She & Him's new album (Volume 2) came out this week, and I just love it. You should buy it. If you want to try it out first, it is streaming on
I guess in honor of the release, Cotton is re-running their Zooey commercial. I just want to wear these clothes.
I also want my hair to look like this:
Probably wouldn't look this cute on me, but a girl can dream...
Happy listening!

Per Request: A Good Sadie Update

For those of you who aren't super excited to hear a bunch of baby talk, you may want to come back for my next post. This is a full Sadie update, per request of family and long distance friends.
Here is a picture of our little family. Just wanted yall to remember that Stephen and I are still here. Unfortunately, this picture was NOT taken on St. Patrick's Day. We just love green this much everyday.
I have to remind myself that just because I'm in the mood to wear whatever color, doesn't mean that Sadie is in the mood to wear it. We end up looking alike way too often. I'm working on it.
In other news, Sadie is a string bean, and we're working hard for her to gain some lbs., per Dr's orders. So this has started...and it's adorable. She sucks on her lips between bites and just about makes a fish face. So cute.
She's tried Rice cereal, bananas, apples, pears, and prunes (due to a bad encounter with some iron enhanced vitamins).
Stephen is going to be really happy that I put up a picture of him making an "eating face." He teases me that I'm doing that really bad. I tried to tell him it is my way of teaching her how to use the spoon correctly. :)
Another fatherly influence that Stephen has asserted is hair brushing. Last weekend, he thought it would be a good idea to part Sadie's wet hair on the other side. It looked nuts. I think she thought it was really funny. Her hair is curling- pretty exciting/scary. Here's how it turned out. Don't worry, we took her to church like this.
This one shows it way better. Plus, how cute does she look in that big chair?
It basically stuck straight up in the back.

On a totally random note, I used this for the first time last week:
All I can say is MAGIC. Don't be afraid. You won't drown. Just breathe through your mouth. Spring is the perfect time to give a Neti pot a whirl. I would like to take this opportunity to thank my mom for this gift.

I will also try to put a video of Sadie in action up soon. I tried to do one this post, but it was too large for blogger. Stay tuned.

A Year Ago...

Some of you may remember this unfortunate incident. Although he looks like a furry friend, Mo Wrigley was not. We attempted to rescue Mo from the Lab rescue. We gave him a super cool name, Wrigley, only to be randomly attacked. No kidding! We returned him. I sobbed...despite the attacks, I'd grown attached.

The next day we came to understand why I'd bawled my eyes out. I was pregnant :) It is amazing to think about how different things are now. Can I get a what what from all you new parents out there? I can definitely still remember what life before Sadie was like, but I wouldn't trade in that cute little peanut for anything. I remember feeling really speechless when I found out I was pregnant. It took Stephen about an hour to realize that I wasn't kidding. Then the daydreaming began, and now here we are living in this. It is just really unbelievable how much things can change- and how they can be even sweeter than you could ever imagine.

In other recent news...
You know you're married to a CPA when...
We're almost at the end of another busy season for Stephen's work. We can't wait to have this one under our belt. Stephen has been such a trooper- Sadie and I are so proud!

Since Stephen's been so crazy busy, these folks came and paid a visit...
How cute are they? We had a great week. They helped so much with Sadie and helped me get caught up (and ahead) on some around the house type items. Thanks, Mom and Dad- you're the best!

Sadie is really chugging along. Her 4 month check up went well. It's fun to watch her learning and starting to really play. Notice the focus below.
More to come soon! Sorry that I've been MIA!
