Milestones for Sadie Jane {the first 10 months}

This week Sadie hit a big milestone…she started crawling! And the sappy mom that I am, started to get emotional as I thought back to all of the milestones that Sadie hit over the past {almost} 10 months. So as she approaches her 1 year birthday, I wanted to take a moment — to pause time — and look back at Sadie’s milestone moments. These milestones aren’t all “textbook” milestone markers, but they were certainly big moments for us!

January 24, 2014 {9 1/2 months}
Sadie started crawling….looks like it’s time to child proof!

Our little munchkin is already trying so SO so hard to pull herself up from the sitting position to the standing position. She grabs onto whatever she can put her hands on and tries so very hard…sometimes it’s painful to watch just how hard she’s trying! But my guess is, the next milestone moment will be pulling herself up from sitting to standing…and it’s just around the corner!

guess who is sitting up all by herself?!
