Slow down!

Savannah is growing up so fast... too fast! She is 6 1/2 months old now... where has the time gone? I still remember when I found out I was pregnant with her. I was so excited, nervous, and thrilled. Now she is here with us and she is already 6 months. HOLY COW!

She is rolling over, eating solids, sitting up, laughing, smiling, cooing, clicking her tongue, puts everything in her mouth she can get a hold of, loves attention, loves her jumper, loves being held, recognizes Mommy and Daddy, etc.

I love this age! I can tell Savannah is going to be such a sweet girl. She is also a little shy at times. She will smile and nuzzle her little head in your shoulder when someone is talking to her.

She weighs 17 pounds which is in the 65th percentile for weight and is 27 inches which is in the 95th percentile for height. Me and Stephen always get a good laugh about that one because neither of us are very tall. We think she is going to be tall and skinny like my Mom!

She is getting bigger everyday! It is so fun to watch her grow and hard to believe how fast it is going!
I need to cherish this baby as much as I can because before I know it she will be a toddler!!!

One year older and wiser too!

When I was young I would count down the days until my birthday... and the night before I would always be so excited for the next day. Since my birthday is towards the end of August I always felt like the month went by SO slow. This year I didn't even know what day of the week my birthday was on... and the month of August went by SO fast! haha Regardless I am now 22 and it feels weird. I just feel like yesterday I was 19 and getting married. Now Stephen is graduated, I have one more semester until I graduate, we live in Orem, and we have a baby. It's so fun, crazy, and exciting to think of... so much has happened in the last 2 1/2 years.

I had a great birthday!

I woke up to these cute flowers from my sweet husband!
And spent my afternoon with this sweet, smiley girl!

That evening my family came over and we ate pizza, ate YUMMY cake, opened presents, and played Phase 10. It was a blast! I had a great birthday!!!! Thanks everyone for all the birthday wishes, texts, and fb messages! :)
On another note:
We gave Savannah her first banana to eat all on her own. It was so funny watching her. We were cracking up. She made a mess... seriously there was banana everywhere... even in between her toes. She was loving every minute of it though, it was so cute!
She is sucking every last bit off her fingers.
So So yummy!

*Thanks Maleen for the Bumbo tray... it has become very useful!

My little jumper!

Savannah cracks me up when I put her in the jumper. She LOVES it! When your strapping her in she knows whats coming and her little legs just start kicking like crazy because she is so excited. Her personality is SO fun. She is such a sweet girl and she is such a happy girl. (As long as she has a full tummy ;). When she is in her jumper she opens her mouth real big and squeals at the top of her lungs. She loves when people watch her jump and she will give them quite a show... she can jump so high. Here is a lot of pictures with her big mouth grin! I love my little jumper!

"MOM... look at me... I can do it!"

Calling all Moms!

SO I need some advice. Savannah used to be such a good sleeper. She would go to bed at 8:00 and would wake up around 5:00 to eat and then would go back to sleep until 8:00 or 9:00. For the last two weeks she has been waking up every 2 hours and just wants to use me as a human pacifier and then goes right back to sleep. I know she isn't very hungry because she doesn't eat long at all. I just don't want to create bad habits of nursing to sleep. I need advice from all you lovely mother's out there. Is this normal that she is waking up so often now? Is it just a phase she is going through?

Thanks! :)
