playroom changes!

hi! aren't you glad it's friday?! i am. not a whole lot planned for this weekend-well a pampered chef party that i'm excited about because i'm in desperate need of kitchen tools! and we're having friends over saturday night! but other than that, just some furniture rearranging, spray painting, and
 project life-ing!

so sadie's playroom has been in need of a little sprucing up.  it's a {small} room with a bunch of toys stuffed into it. but the way i had the room set up wasn't really working for us, so yesterday we did some organizing and rearranging, and now sadie and i both love it!

here is a view walking into the room. i got that adorable pink butterfly at hobby lobby yesterday!
looking into the room...mike found the ABC foam rug at Lowe's yesterday, and it has been quite the hit around here.  plus it's educational, so i'm loving it :) the storage shelf i got at ikea forever ago, and the pink toy bins i got at target. i had the shelf on it's side but it takes up less room standing up. i tried to put the toys she plays with more in the lower shelves so they're easy to get to.
i moved my desk/computer against this wall and her table and chairs against the wall too. i had her table in the center of the room but it just took up too much space, so this way she can color/draw/etc. while i'm on the computer. the ABC canvas i *LOVE* ! got it at target last year, and it's just precious (plus educational-do you see a theme with me?)
the CREATE letters my sister and i did at a donna downey class years ago, but i just love them so much still! and the pink floating shelves i got at target on clearance last year.
and here's miss sadie enjoying her playroom!
happy friday!

2 years old!!

i canNOT believe sadie is 2 years old! she turned two one week ago, but i've been really sick the past week and haven't felt like blogging...anyway, she is a ball of energy and so much fun!

she weighs 33 pounds, wears, 2T-3T clothes, and size 8 shoes
 some of her new favorites are playing "campground", using shovels to "dug" in the ground, and painting pictures
 she takes one nap every afternoon after lunch and goes to sleep around 8-8:30 each night...she sleeps about 11 hours at  night...she recently climbed on top of crib, so we bought a toddler bed but haven't transitioned her to it yet.  mainly because mommy and daddy aren't ready for it!!
 she uses complete sentences for everything now...we have great conversations each day, and i stay amazed at everything she knows/remembers
-she counts to 16 in english and 8 in spanish
-she can say all of her ABC's and knows her colors
-she knows the words to most of the songs we sing
 her favorite shows are little einsteins and mickey mouse club, she loves to watch the tinkerbell movie, peter pan, and cinderella
 sadie is all about climbing right now...on fear at all!
 she is sweet and kind and introduces herself to most anybody. we love her so so much!!

here is our 3rd attempt at a family pic the other night ;) oh well.

sadie-isms at 23 months

 although the picture above looks like sadie is sticking the flower stem up her nose, she wasn't!! i just thought she looked so sweet in this picture. 

here are a *few* of the funny things, she's saying at 23 months...
 "mama, you are the sweetest mama i ever seen"

at the dinner table she will ask mike "daddy, how your day is? how the kids?" cracks us up every time

the other day she was putting socks on her hands and said "this is fascinating"

puts her hands on my cheek and says "don't worry mama, we'll fix you up."

mike put her blanket over her chair and ottoman like a tent and told her to use her imagination.  the blanket fell and she said "oh no, my imagination fell over."

if something falls or she drops something she says "uh oh sabedego" instead of "uh oh spagetti-o"...i love this because she usually says all of her words so clearly, so it's cute to have one mispronounced!

i cannot believe my baby girl will be 2 in exactly one week!!
