Sarah Sweetheart

"Sarah Sweetheart" has become our little name for our girl. I guess it's kind of like calling Jake, "Jake the Snake", except you know, edgier.

I love this little girl.
She is just so sweet.
She's pretty even-tempered and laid-back.
She loves attention and will try her best to smile and flirt to get you to talk to her.

She loves to be held outward so she can see what's going on.
She loves her hands... especially shoving them in her mouth as often as possible.
She adores her big brother and is always trying to watch him and what he's doing.
She loves to eat and is getting pretty good at the whole solids thing.

When she's sad she gives us fair warning by sticking her bottom lip out as far as humanly possible. Then come the real tears.
She's a great night-sleeper and has taken very well to her crib in the kids' room.

She startles easily.
She rolls over and is working on sitting.
She laughs and squeals and tries to talk to us.
She looks pretty in everything.
She hates bath-time.
She looks like her daddy.

I love her smile, her double-chin, her big eyes, her birth-marks, her chubby legs, her cleft chin, her dark hair, her Jakey nose... I love everything about her.

I always hoped for a little Sarah. I just can't believe she's really mine.

Yep. She's pretty adorable. It's crazy how fast she's gotten her personality.

Also, I personally like "Mr. The Snake" even better than "Jake the Snake" :)

She is so adorable! She looks so much like Blaine but I think she also looks like her pretty mama. I even think Sarah looks like me a little too. Am I vain? Sometimes.

Sarah sweetheart is darling! I want to snuggle her!

We nicknames Sloan, Sloanie Bolognie. (although I know it is spelled bologna, i think.) :)

She's beautiful. I love the close up pictures of her and the whole "bottom lip" thing. I love her huge eyes too. What a beauty. There is just something different about having a girl, isn't there? They "melt" you in a different way than boys do.

What? Devyn is in high school?!

Sarah seriously is such a sweetheart. I love these pictures and I love that little girl. I love it how she tries so hard to please, too. She's so much fun.

I love her. You kind of threw me for a loop the other night when you said she's already FOUR months old!!! Wow! She is perfect, Alicia. :)

Oh my goodness that sweet little chin! What a beautiful girl. I kinda want to see her little lip stick out. Is that mean?
