September 7th to 17th - Precious Moments

Tuesday, September 21, 2010

It's back to school month which always feels like the beginning of a new year. My computer has been acting strange lately and I'm terrified my thousands of "Saige" photos will somehow disappear so I've been going through my many folders month-by-month and I just cannot believe it's been 20 months already! 

Trev and I have spent the last week getting organized with financial advisor appointments, cleaning out cupboards and closets, revamping our filing system, drafting our will at the lawyer's office (better late than never), updating Saige's baby book, etc. We stumbled across video clips of Saigelette and shared a few laughs and tears (okay only I cried); it's simply amazing how much this little girl has rocked our world. Not only am I scared of losing all her photos and videos, I'm scared of forgetting the little things she does that make us grin ear-to-ear. There hasn't been a day go by where she hasn't put a smile on my face and so this post is dedicated to all wonderful Saige'isms of the last while.

Thankfully Saige has become a great passenger and is quite content sitting in her carseat so long as the music is blasting. Unfortunately I still remember the days when she'd be crying so hard in the backseat that I'd either A. cry myself or B. pull over on the highway and console her. Now if Saige feels she's been in the car too long she'll say, "Mama, buckle off" - Lord help me when she figures out how to unbuckle herself.

Saige and the dogs are working on their relationship. In truth Maddison and Dakota should be far more loving towards Saige as she's the reason they go on more walks and get more treats. Our Saiger likes to walk Maddie with no parental assistance and she's surprisingly good at keeping Maddison in line. Saige also insists on giving the mutts "puppy crackers" at least once a day hence the reason they're getting so fat.


My personal favourite is when the dogs are barking and Sage scolds them by saying "shhhh puppies" or if they get into recycle she'll say "uh-oh, puppies bad".


This is how Saige goes down slides lately, screaming "weeee!" the whole way down.

I think I mentioned this Saige'ism before and I'm sad that it has come to an abrupt end. Saige used to say "welcome" instead of "thank you" which Trev and I thought was simply adorable. Now she says "dank d'you" which is equally sweet, but not as funny.


Trevor and I have no idea what to get Saige in terms of toys. Caleb's easy - if it has wheels he'll love it; Saige on the otherhand is a bit trickier to figure out - "typical girl" as Trev would say. Books are one of the few things she consistently enjoys and so to the library we go.

Such a big girl now. She's growing sooo much - too much for my liking - averaging about a 1/2 an inch every month.

As Saige gets older she's showing more of an interest in the t.v. and is quite smitten with the movie 'Babies' - I might have to breakdown and buy it now that we've returned the rental. It's truly amazing what they pick up from the darn television. For example I was watching 'Bachelor Pad' on PVR awhile back (poor choice of t.v. I realize) and there was a kissing competition on the show - Saige was apparently watching because she grabbed my face and tried to pull me in for a looong smooch! I screeched and she thought it was a hilarious game... what have I done?

Another thing Saige says quite regularly - and out of the blue - is "monsters gone". That is something my friends I had no part in; we have no idea where she picked that up from as there's no talk of monsters in our house. So weird. Trev thinks it's because our house is allegedly haunted.

On Thursday I left work early with a tremendous headache and had Trev and his lowbed pick Saige up from daycare. He had brought Saige with him to do an equipment move that evening and she came home absolutely filthy! She went straight into the bath - just look at those dirty little fingernails.

Saige has some seriously smelly feet. When she takes off her socks, she'll sniff her toes and give us an animated "ewww". 

Saige loves to dance, especially to LOUD music. She knows where the volume is for the speakers and will crank the tunes so loud I can actually see the picture frames on the shelves shifting from the vibration. She can go absolutely wild and often squeals in delight as she runs to her bedroom to put on her tutu.

Trev and I have recently made a commitment to live in this house for another 2 years regardless if a new baby enters our life. To make staying here a little more bearable we're trying to finish the renos once and for all. Ta-da!! the stairs have carpet. I initially had some reservations about shag carpet stairs in a carpet-less house, but I now love them - they're so quiet and cozy that Saige actually tries to play on them.

Hey Sara - put all your pictures and videos online with either Smugmug or Skydrive. The cost is peanuts and that way even if you back up your photos on an external hard drive and your house burns down, they are all safe and sound on the net.

Sean and I are looking into the same thing for our pics!
