Well, I'm finally updating Sagie's b-day fun! It was a pretty low key day for the most part. I had decorated the house with lots of hearts and heart balloons, so she loved looking around at everything. Most of my day was spent making her cake! (photo courtesey of Jaxon)
Actually, I'm not really sure what my kids were doing the whole time! : ) I had activity days at 6:00pm, so the family came over around 7:15 for the party. We did some dancing, because my sweet baby Sage loves to dance. Even if it's just to my phone ring tone! We then opened her many presents. She got lot's of cute clothes. Heidi always says that part is actually for me. It's true. And then came the fun part. Although it took Sage quite awhile to really figure out that she had a huge hunk of goodness in front of her, she eventually made a decent sized mess out of the cake and herself. That's what it's all about right? I love the look on her face.
She got a bath, and the party ended not too long after that. Then she was off to bed, probably completly confused about the night that just had happened!

This first year of Sage's life has been a challanging one. I'm not going to lie, I'm not sad to see it gone. I love the girl to pieces, but with her RSV at 2 months, and then her consistent ear infections after that, she was a tough one to live with. Especially compared to Jaxon, who was easy! Not anymore of course. Okay, this is very negative...I promise I'm going somewhere with it all. These past few months as Sage get's older I can't believe what a sweet and funny little girl she is. I'm finally really able to see her personality shine through. She'll laugh at anything and loves her mom and dad so much. Anytime I sit down on the floor she'll run over until she's a few feet away, turn around, and then back into my lap. It's really cute. She loves her little brother and is so excited anytime she see's him. She's got the wild side that I'm afraid all my kids will have, and I just love it. I absolutly love having a little girl to dress up and to be my little princess. She's such a blessing in my life and I'm so grateful that she is mine.



I LOVE YOU BABY SAGE! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!

what a fun day. you are such a fun mom--your kids will look back on these picstures and agree.

i know what you mean about the first year being over. Jake was a piece of cake, and Cole was my colicky baby. isn't it funny how kids can be so different?

Happy 1st B-day Sage!

Happy Birthday to Sage! I love how you pulled the bear off the cake just for her. That's awesome.

Bridget said...

What a cute cake! And have you ever had a bad picture? You are so photogenic!

Kelsey said...

What fun! Sage looks so beautiful. I never thought she looked much like you before, but as she gets older I see more of you in her. These next months are my favorite. Nine months to about 18 are the best. I think that's why we keep having kids, to get to the good parts again!

Gosh, Sage is just the cutest little thing. I guess you had to endure those crazy awful fussy days to receive the blessing of a happy cute, dancing, beautiful baby girl who loves you for taking good care of her in her "trials".
That cake was awesome! Good job!!!

Sage is only 3 days older than Jacen....that is crazy. How come I never put two and two together?! Well Happy Birthday Sage! Oh and we need to talk...I need to steal some great Activity Days ideas :) Had no clue you were also Activity Day Leader.

Oh I see the competition with this family.. No one comment on any of their blogs and then they won't have any idea who is looking on whose blog!! I always leave comments on both so I guess I'm the weiner..... Happy 1 year old Sage. Tell your mommy you want a sister!!!! I'm getting tired of asking but how did your audition go?

Heidi said...

Party, party, party!! Can you believe you're getting ready to throw yet another party! That's what you get for being so good at it. Sage performed perfectly for her party. What a cutie.

Stacie said...

I was just looking at this blog again and I love all the pictures of Sage on her birthday. Hope you come visit soon. Take Care.

Maybe you have no clue who we are. It seems like ages ago. I was reading over you description of Sage and she just sounds so much like our Mikayla. We have now added an Andrew to the mix, and he is so much easier than she was. Maybe it is a boy vs. girl thing. If that is true, I want lots and lots of boys! I don't think my world could handle more than one sweet Mikayla.
