My First Mother's Day

On Sunday we went to church in Fulton and then out to Jalisco for lunch.  We hung out at home afterwards and Matt hung up the hammock he gave me for Christmas.  He gave me a lounge chair and a baby book for my Mother's Day gift, and then we got some Champ's chicken and had a picnic in the backyard.  It was a great day!

Weenie Roast

A while back Matt built a "fire pit" in our backyard, and we had been itching to try it out.  The weather has been so crazy that we haven't had many chances.  We took advantage of one (sort of) warmer day in April roast some hot dogs and make s'mores.  Sage wasn't thrilled with the weather, but we had fun!

4 Months Old Today!

Miss Sage is four months old today.  I can't believe it was four months ago that we met! She has made me a better person every day and I can't express my love for this little chunk.  She weighs about 14 pounds and is practicing talking all the time.  She has been rubbing her gums together which makes us think she might be teething.  My sister Megan says it makes her look like the Godfather. She is definitely drooly. Her new favorite thing to do is start kicking as hard as she can as soon as we put her in the baby tub, so we get drenched and she splashes all the water out. 

 On Saturday night we put her in her crib in the nursery for the first time since she has been sleeping well, and she did great! She slept 8-5:40, ate, and went back to sleep until 8:45.  Yes, I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but up until this weekend she was sleeping in a Pack 'n Play in our bedroom.  It was just easier to not have to go so far when she woke up in the middle of the night. She has started sleeping 10-12 hours at a time now, so it seemed like the perfect time for the move.  She didn't even seem to notice the difference! Matt and I think we are getting spoiled because she is such a sweet baby.

Sage has her well baby checkup tomorrow, and Matt will have to take her by himself.  She is getting shots, so I really wish I could be there to comfort her. We only have three more weeks of school and then a whole summer of Sage time though!

In other news, Matt will be the HEAD girls basketball coach at North Callaway next year!  He will also be assisting with baseball and is very excited about the new challenges.  He would eventually like to be the head boys basketball coach, but is happy to have the chance to run his own program with the girls.  We are both happy that he won't have to coach anything in the fall and will have more time for barbecuing and tailgating!
