Almost 4, 2 3/4 and 11 months old!

You might be able to guess why this is a fun time of year for us, but also hard because my babies are growing up!

I cannot believe that Sadie is almost one!
Then to think that Owen is going to be four just can't be true! Then at the same time hearing the thoughts in his head and the grown-up things he says is just a constant reminder for us of what a sweet little boy he is. Yesterday at lunch we told him that he was such a kind young man. He responded, "I am not young! What's young mean daddy?" We cracked up.

Sadie cakes is 11 months old today! She is loving walking everywhere and can stand up without pulling onto something. She tried to jump yesterday, I am not sure if it was on purpose, but I couldn't help from laugh seeing a baby jump! She totally bit it though. She is really tough and has great balance. I think that the babies in the family always have good balance and quick responses though...they kind of have to for survival!

She still loves to eat, but can hardly sit still long enough to get it all in. She is up to 18 lbs 10 oz! And this girl knows how to SCREAM! It's not always a sad-cry scream, but she can be LOUD and high pitched. It's like she knew girls were loud in a different way than boys! We are constantly chasing her and re-directing her. It's a fun stage watching them explore and learn what's theirs to play with and what's not!
And our newest girly thing with Sadie is that I gave her pigtails for the first time yesterday. She has lots of hair at the back of her head, but not so much in the front. But her hair is getting long and even starting to get knots! So I got some little bows and I thought they were so stinking cute! And the good thing is she left them alone!

These pictures are from the zoo. We went as a family on Saturday and had so much fun! Blake took us to the Sea Lion Show and it was such a fun treat.
Look at her long legs! Is it just me or do they look LOOONG?

PIGTAILS!!! If only her hair would grow as fast as those legs! We got the biggest kick out of her waddle yesterday. Phillip was still talking about her last night(he's pretty smitten).
