The Energizer Bunny

Sadie is running right now. She sprints from the living room, into the kitchen, around through the dining room into the front hallway and then makes a last sprint by the bookshelf before making her way back into the living room where everyone is watching Wheel of Fortune. She leaves a mini path of destruction in her path, trailing board books, toys and occasionally a dish towel, behind her.

The tables and counters are no longer high enough to deter her grabby little hands and if a surface is too high, she's willing to climb to get what she wants. The other day I watched as she (quickly) launched herself up onto a chair and stood, grabbing hold of the tv and trying to hoist herself up onto the tv stand so that she could lower herself into her bassinet/toy bin to go after the cat who had taken refuge there. I jumped up when I saw her plan unfolding and stopped her just before a major accident occurred.

Today Sadie's favorite game was peekaboo. She would run up behind me when I was sitting on the floor and hide behind my back and then giggle hysterically while I pretended to "look" for her. She actually managed to stay quite for about three seconds a couple times, and then she'd giggle and start tugging on my shirt before completely falling over on a pile of pillows, only to start the game over again a few seconds later.

Sadie had a little time away from Mommy today when I went to the a doctor's appointment (to confirm that Sadie's going to be a big sister for the insurance). I don't think she even knew that I was gone (and it was confirmed!)!
