The fairies, by the way, were a group of 3 teenage girls who walked around gossiping, wearing jeans and fairy wings.
But it was to benefit some kid thing or other so we bought some tokens as donations.
Sadie in the "Lollipop Land."
Sadie in the "North Pole." Note the broom and dustpan left right there. Sure, this is a safe area for kids! Plus, all that delicious styrofoam I saw the kids eating.
The "Ice Cream Sea." I think this needs no description.

So there's not too many pics. But we wanted to show you Sadie's potato mustache. She loved the food, especially potatoes.
Dinner was delicious, the company was wonderful. Fun!
And now I am done posting for the night! Look below and you will see many other posts. I am making up for all those times you came here looking for a Sadie fix and I denied you!
Anyway, here is a video of Sadie enjoying the box it came in.
Sadie loves to read her books. She loves to have me read to her but now she has begun pulling all her books that are out off the coffee table shelf and "reading" them.
And if you put them back she pulls them all out the minute she realizes you've put them away. They must ALL be out. She's her mother's daughter.
And she points and talks like she's reading.
Here's a dark, not so great video of her and a book. I'm working on getting one of her talking to her books.

Here are some pictures from the party we had today. One of the moms was kind enough to let us all descend on her house. There were about 10 babies altogether.
So what does a mom do who just spent all weekend at a wedding in NY and doesn't have a costume and refuses to buy a store-made one? She makes one at the last minute (9pm last night) and makes her daughter a mummy!
It was very cute and everyone liked it, including me.

Sadie started cooing and got extremely excited when she saw the pumpkins. Then she yelled & laughed at the tractors and got royally pissed off when she wasn't allowed to "walk" holding one of our hands.
The 3rd picture down is Sadie blowing a raspberry. She loves it and if you get her started and do it back to her she will go for 5 minutes straight. It's pretty funny and well worth the complete spit-drenching that occurs. I don't mind a little baby spit.

From me to daddy and back. She just let go today and took a couple of steps toward me. Then we sat across from each other and she went back and forth. She's getting pretty good at it in one day!
I guess soon she'll be taking off on her own around the house. It's amazing to watch her go. She is just the cat's meow, I tell ya.

But first you should know that she is clapping! I will post a video soon. And she said "CAT!" while pointing at Mr. Bird (the cat). Hooray!
At the park:
Just hanging on the couch. She cracks me up with this pose. She often sleeps like this too:

Well, she finally figured out the old knee-leg crawl the other day. Now she no longer looks like a wounded soldier or a thirsty desert-stranded person. She looks like a baby crawling, which is what she is. And it only took us moving the last vestige of our adult house off to the side. The baby officially owns us.
The day we moved the table she crawled. It's like she'd been waiting. The hardwood floors were too slippery. And now that she figured it out on the rug the wood is easy-peasy too.
So far a chair is gone and now the coffee table. So our rug is now a giant play rug. Which is turning out to be fun for everyone. I think we should all have playmats, they remind us to get down on the floor and hang out- view the world from a different place than from our butt on the couch.
But, anyway, here's her first real crawl!

So at 6:45 while eating dinner this is what happened:

Yeah, I Creep!
Sadie has been sort of moving around but seemed unable to control the direction she traveled in. Well, here is video proving that today she figured out how to get where she wants to go!
And all this with an ear infection which has made her cranky for 1-1/2 weeks.
