Sweet Dreams

I am in a really good mood right now. I had a productive day and we finally bought Sadie a bumper pad and sheets for her crib. Sometimes I feel like a bad Mom because I didn't have a room painted and decorated for Sadie before she was born. I have even caught myself comparing our situation to some of our friend's and thinking that we were lacking in how we have welcomed Sadie into the world. Blake and I are living in our second 1 bedroom apartment. I'm not writing this post to complain. My point is that in the last 2 1/2 years, I have come to realize how much a person can do without. We take for granted all that we have and our "wants" get confused with our actual "needs." For example, we don't have a kitchen table. We take turns eating off the desk. To tell you the truth, I have gotten use to it. I won't know what to do with a table when we get one.

I had fun with Blake and Sadie picking out her bedding tonight. I set up the mobile before we put her to bed and I have never seen her that excited. I know she was tired but she laughed and talked to the rotating musical animals for about 15 minutes. Sweet dreams Sadie Sue!

I still think we should get a mini table that would fit right against the kitchen wall. I do miss the bar from our last condo.

It's amazing what a mobile can do for a baby. I love listening to babies talk -- especially Sadie. It was SO cute that night when she was talking to Brooks.

GET BABY, GET BABY, GET BABY! :)

I didnt realize you didnt have a baby mobile. I think I made sure all my kids and grandkids had one right away. It stimulates their little minds so much. And it is something familiar they like when going to bed or waking. Gradma Snow
