"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

5 months!

Notice the outfit change in between these two? It took me 3 shirts before we got a good one without spit-up! And of course, changing the shirt automatically changes the coordinating colors and we needed a new bow! Dressing a girl is exhausting!
Sadie is 5 months old now and we can hardly believe how big she's getting!

We are thinking she's around 13 lbs (we don't own a scale, sorry!)

She's started SCREAMING! The boys told me, "Sissy screams like Ragon!"

This is how the boys are when Sadie is up. I am trying to teach them about personal space, but it doesn't seem to be getting through!
I died because as much as I adore my niece, she has an ear-piercing scream that scares me to death every time I hear it! I laughed so hard that the boys thought of her when Sadie screamed!

She is on all four's rocking trying to crawl!

She loves standing while holding your hands and if you pull forward on her hands she takes steps! The boys love watching this!

Cooper is every bit of a two year old little boy (snot included). This morning we had a little struggle with a bad attitude. I told him we needed to pray that God would help him have a better attitude. While I was praying with him, he shouted, "I don't want a better attitude!"
HA! If that's not 2 for you, what is?

Owen....my sweet Owen! This guy could not be more like his daddy. It's amazing to watch the two of them together. Cooper thinks his dad's pretty stinking cool, but Owen pretty much hangs on Blake's every word and move. Owen is so sensitive and picks up on everything! He wants to make sure everyone is okay and taken care of...that is if there's not a toy involved! He might take you to the ground if you've got a toy he might like! We are working on this and I am hoping it's a stage!

Sadie has started to suck in her bottom lip like she's an old lady that lost her teeth! It's adorable!

Oh my gosh Sadie and the boys are so cute I want to hold that little girl seriously she is a doll! The boys are completly cute too but I know how 2-3 year old boys are hug or hold for a second and off they go. Her outfits are so cute I love dressing little girls enjoy the bows now luckily I did because as soon as Madison could talk and use her hands she yanked them off and about kindergarden I couldn't dress her up anymore, thank goodness I get to play dress up with Ashlein still some weekends. I love how you talked about God not liking the attitude I'm going to steal that one from you for Aaron he has had such an attitude I think they are ready for Spring to get here.

I cannot believe she is already 5 months old. Not possible. Who made the cute pants? I had a boo-boo bag made for Kynlee in that same fabric. LOVE it! Love that you are going through the same stages I am and to be able to relate. Love Cooper's comment. Sounds like something another little boy I know might say! (wink, wink) Love you guys!

NOOOOOO she can't be 5 months! That isn't possible! (that means I have been stalking you for 5 months too!)

Love the outfits, love the kids on their bellies, and love the lack of personal space. Love it all! I can hardly wait to have the three-kid circus come to my house!

Oh, btw...can't wait to see you at the playdate!

LOVE the outfit...how is is that she can wear that already? She is sooo stinkin cute! Love the bottom lip sucking...sorry she is screaming...I can only imagine where she picked that up :) Oops! The part that does make me happy - we only scream for our cousins! So I don't hear it every day - just when I am with you, Laura or Steph!

Look at those cheeks. I just want to kiss all over them. Happy 5 month bday Miss Sadie. Can't wait to see you!!!

Your children are beautiful, Molly!!! I just discovered your blog this week. Marianne Johnson from The Micah Project pointed me in your direction, b/c we have something in common. My husband and I have adopted 3 kids (all boys, so far)...two are full African American and 1 is biracial. Please visit my blog when you have time!

I miss you all!! Love the pics so much but makes me anxious to get to you!! Only 5 more sleepies and I'll be there!! Love you all.... Noonie

How cute are they??? I think the middle pic where Sadie and Owen are on their tummies...Owen huggin the cookie mix...priceless! The personal space issue will better itself when she reaches up and grabs hair and screams in their face...that's when Si learned that Jordann wanted some space. We couldn't help but laugh since we warned him that babies don't really enjoy being overwhelmed that way. Kids are the best entertainment!

Sassy Frass Sadie....I want to pinch those sweet little cheeks! How adorable are her outfits! I'm cracking up at Cooper's prayer. I'm sure my day is coming! And I'm in love with Owen's hair.. Your kiddos could not be an ounce cutier!

Laura said...

I love the bows....just love them! I remember being jealous of Erin Campbell growing up and how she always had the cutest bows! She even had a bow on her sling when she broke her arm! So, thanks for the bows! You do it for me, right? :)

She has got to be the pretties little thing ever! And the pictures of her on her tummy, then with her lip sucked in HYSTERICAL!

Tell everyone hi! Can't wait to see you on your next trip home.

I have pretty much just read your entire blog...well, not all of it but I will be back to finish...so much for going to bed early. I was just going to pop over and say hi and you've blessed my socks off!!!

Your family is absolutely beautiful and tears are streaming down my face and I am sobbing over Sadie's story. You are so gifted and your love for our sweet Savior is so apparent with every word you write.

Girl, I am the one who is going to be blessed from your email. I knew that before I visited but now I am certain. You have so much to teach me!!!

I love you already and can't wait to get to "know" you better. Kiss all those babies tonight...they are precious!!

And, I am praying for you as hubby works long hours.
