Sarah turned 5 months on Sep. 25. This month promises to hold LOTS of new changes. We are currently in the process of switching over to formula. Talk about a ton of work! She is being a trooper, though, I must say! We also plan to leave her for a weekend when we go to Chattanooga, TN for a wedding in October. Pretty excited for a getaway weekend but nervous about being gone from her for that long. It'll be good for both of us...and if she's not weaned by then, I'm pretty sure she will be after that weekend. (I promise, Connie, I will make sure she is BEFORE that weekend :)!)
Here are the fun things Sarah is up to these days:
-Sleeps from about 8 to 4, wakes up, moans and groans, gets the paci stuck back in and goes back to sleep until about 8...great sleeper! AND we no longer swaddle!
-Doesn't seem to mind being on her belly. Rolls from belly to back and back to belly but doesn't care to do it that often.
-My unofficial length measurement for SJ is 27 inches.
-She is genuinely content about 95% of the day. Takes about 3 naps a day that range anywhere from 1 to 2 hours.
-Smiles at just about anybody and for any reason. Might take her a minute but if you persist, you will get a sweet toothless grin.
-I can still leave her on a blanket or on her play mat for about 30 to 45 minutes while I do chores or work around the house. She is just fine to play by herself!
-Can find the television in every room no matter where we are...even restaurants!
I absolutely adore this little girl. She is sweet, cute and soooo lovable! I told Daniel the other day that personally, I think we have the best baby in the world! Ha, I know all parents think that! However, I will say Sarah has been just about the easiest baby I have ever met. Not that I really have experience or other children to compare her to but she is definitely spoiling us!

I'd always wanted to do a corn maze. There was one in a town not too far from Stillwater when I was in college but nobody would ever go with me. I would totally do this one again...if the weather isn't in the 90s! They even had a petting zoo, corn cannon, cow train and pumpkin patch...wow! Thanks to everyone who went...it was a blast...except for that whole heat thing. Enjoy the pics!

Bacon and Jalapeno wrapped dove breasts...surprisingly, somewhat tasty!

Said with such certainty, innocence and matter-of-factness. I love you too, sweet Kellen!
Kellen told me this three times yesterday. I think I almost cried everytime. I love Kellen's innoncence and sweetness. Some day he is going to make a girl the luckiest girl in the world! My other favorite thing he said was after being asked what color baby Anna's eyes are..."umm, probably brown." I love that a 2 year old says "probably" and uses it correctly! Thanks for letting me hang out with you guys, Shawn!
And yes, Daniel, it's sweet when you say it too! :)
(Btw, this little girl slept from 9 P.M. to 9:30 A.M., with that one wake-up around 5...Crazy!!)
