Coloring- with markers, pens, and makeup

Saige sure loved to color.  As soon as she could crawl, she was finding any marker in sight.  Unfortunately, it was usually a permanent marker.  At first she just put the drawing utensil in her mouth.  She found this intriguing for a while, until she realized that when drawing on things other than her self, she was able to sit back and admire.

Whenever Saige was silent, we knew when we found her, it wasn’t going to be pretty.  It always made me happy to see her work, no matter if it was on her face, the couch, walls, or floor.  Sometimes, I would be her partner in crime.  Of course not with something that wasn’t removable 😉

Baby, you were such an artist.  Excited to see the masterpieces you have created in heaven.



She loved wearing/trying on glasses.  I was fortunate enough to watch Saige at an eye clinic while our mom was examined.  We had SUCH a good time trying on glasses and fooling around in the main lobby.

Dancing and Singing- Filled with Videos!

At the young age of 2, Saige loved to sing and dance.  This story has multiple videos of Saige dancing and Singing!!

Her Papa and Mama always had music playing.  Saige learned some dances with Papa at a Pow Wow in Milwaukee.  The below video shows her doing the dance.  Papa is videotaping.

The next video our Mama took when Saige jumped out of the bathtub for the first time and started dancing with Mama and Papa.  Surprised Mom, as she did not know Saige could climb out of the bathtub!

In the below videos Saige is dancing with Shauna, Adam and Andrea!! These were taken in October 2015-

After Christmas, Mama and I took Saige to the mall for the first time!  It was close to closing time, so there were not many people there.  Saige was able to check everything out and not worry about running into people.  In this video, she passes the store Pink, hears music and starts dancing.


In addition to dancing, Saige really tried hard to sing 🙂  In this video, she is singing “I’m Worth It”.  Little did she know, she totally was!!!

OR, Sometimes Saige would tell mom to “stop it”(stop singing).  She learned this from hearing mom tell Buckler (their dog) to “stop it” all day long.

These videos are a great way to hear and see how awesome she was!



She really did not know or have a passion for football.  She sure did look cute in Packer gear though!!!  The first image, I took of her when she was a week old.  The next photo is when she was about 3 months old.  The remaining photos were taken at age 2.  I screenshot a bunch of snapchats my sister Shauna sent me while I was at work:)


Like a lot of children, Saige loved animals.  She had a dog named Buckler.  Me and my sister have animals that she knew by name too!  I have 2 rabbits Kandy and Korn.  She would call both “Kon”.  They were terrified of her.  Shauna’s dog Oakley loved Saige.  She would call him “Okey”.

With Buckler, she would learn many things from our mother.  Whenever Buckler would bark, Saige would sometimes say, “Shut up” or “NO”… and them babble on.  Saige was really good at imitating what she learned.  Of course most of the imitating was done on her own terms.
