While we were away, Sarah really enjoyed her stay with Grandma and Coachie….that is what they call my Dad…he has never been a Grandpa or Poppy, he is “Coachie”.
If you don’t already know, my Dad is a wrestling coach and has been his entire life….when I was pregnant with Nick, we were trying to figure out what he would call my Dad……somehow Coachie was what we came up with and it stuck!
Anyhow, Sarah came away learning some new things after her visit last week…..she has mastered the “flip” Coachie used to do this with me and Krisit(my sister) when we were little. He would hold us up facing outward and then flip us down and we would land on our feet…..just like Sarah did up there in the picture!
She also learned a thing or two from grandma while we were gone…….. Of course Mom had her out shopping each and every day, so I am sure she is on her way to becoming a shop-a-holic like the rest of the girls in this family….the obsession with shoes and handbags is just beginning…OK, I am exagerrating a little….the obsession is just with baby dolls at this point, but she learned something else……Mom, you are probably going to kill me for sharing this one, but I have to…it is funny!!!!
Sarah has been repeating absolutely everything that we say these days….I am thrilled, she is really developing her speaking skills and she is becoming a lot easier to understand….everything is coming out a lot clearer……….crystal clear! I am sure you might know where this is going…..My Mom was playing with Sarah, when she realized that she forgot something that was cooking in the kitchen and she said OH SH!T…..as soon as she said it, Sarah immediately started repeating her and continued to run around and say it!!!!
All I can say….I am glad she learned her new word from you and not from me!!!! We all better start watching everything we say in front of little Sarah!
Nick and Sarah’s reunion….this picture was taken Monday morning just as Nick walked through the front door for the first time in over a week. Sarah was so excited to see him……she squeezed him so tight, the poor kid could barely breath! I am not sure who was happier, Nick or Sarah?
