Sara 2.5

Sara is two and a half today. My goodness she seems so much older than that. She has left all the baby stuff behind and just a pleasure to be with. She has conquered potty training with not a single accident in the past week, thrown away her binkies, and talks and plays like most 3 - 4 year olds. Fortunately, she still loves to snuggle and thinks I am cool, so she hasn't completely grown up.
Sara's currents are as follows:
Height: 39.5 inches
Weight: 38 lbs
Favorite color: pink
Favorite treats: starbursts (pink), ice cream, soda (pink soda), rootbeer floats (what she selected for a prize when she became the "potty princess")
Favorite food: salmon, noodles, tomato soup, french fries
Favorite game: dress-up, coloring
Hates: nursery, messy hands
Regularly used phrases: You hurt my feelings, I lug you, I'm not [adj/pet name] I'm Sara Rosalie Randall
Favorite Shows: Max & Ruby, Wow Wow Wubbzy, Barbie: Thumbelina and 12 Dancing Princesses, anything Ariel
Favorite Books: Knuffle Bunny, Pinkalicious, My Pretty Pink Purse, Olive the Other Reindeer
I often catch her: covered in bling, sorting anything - particularly my paperclips, singing in the bathroom, playing with mermaids, kissing Eliza, carrying around a favorite book and "reading it"
Sara has so much personality and makes me laugh regularly. My favorite two funnies this week were 1 - coming out of Walmart she hugged me and said, "Mom, it is way Brrrr out here." and 2 - to Jason while he was boosting her on the potty, "I no pee on Cinderella. I ask her if it's OK and she say 'No way, Jose'". She is also incredibly polite; always saying please, thank you and excuse me. And, she just has a way of charming anyone to death. I think her saying, "Name, you da best." Might help with that. Oh, how we love our Sara!!!


  1. Nice work perfectly capturing our little Sara right now. This post is just HER! She is so much fun and we're so lucky to have this little bug in our lives. Love you, Sara!!!

  2. She is one beautiful, smart and charming you Sara!

  3. Sara is such a cutie - just chock full of personality. And growing up too fast :(

  4. Sara says the most astute things. She's going to win the "Miss Personality" contests one day. I sure love special Sara.
