Playin' It Cool

Our little Savannah is becoming quite the little grabber (in the nicest sense of the word). :-) Over the last couple weeks, Savannah has become more adept at using her hands. Savannah loves to grab her bottle, Daddy's nose, and Mommy's cell phone.

Also, now that Savannah is learning how to play with soft toys, she's able to entertain herself for a few minutes while I fix dinner, make bottles, or wash dishes. Our little girl is becoming more independent!

Love You, Daddy

Dear Daddy,

I love when you give me a bath each night.

I love when you blow-dry my hair after my bath.

I love when you do tummy time with me on the living room floor.

I love when you let me snuggle on your shoulder.

I love when you take me for a ride in your truck.

I love when you hold me high in the sky.

I love when you dance with me.

I love when you make silly noises.

I love when you take me for a walk around the neighborhood or mall.

I love when you tickle my belly.

Happy Father's Day!

I love you, Daddy!




Finger Lickin' Good!

Seeing Double? Take a look at the pictures of me and Savannah below. Both were taken when we were 3 months old.

It's pretty obvious that Savannah looks more like her daddy than her mommy. However, Savannah seems to have inherited my long fingers, big feet, and tall height. Perhaps she'll have some of my personality traits as well! :-)



Tough Cookie

Our little Savannah is a tough cookie. In addition to getting her second round of shots last Friday, Savannah has also battled a cold, a fever, and the flu over the last few days. Plus, our sweet girl is cutting her first teeth.

As one would expect, Savannah's been fussier than usual recently, but she's been a real trooper. Even when she's not feeling well, Savannah still manages to grin, talk, and play with her hands, feet, and toys. It also helps that Grandma Barbara has been staying with us and giving Savannah some extra TLC.

We'll be glad when Savannah feels better!

Look Who's 4 Months!

The last month flew by, and Savannah turned four months old on June 12! During her four-month well visit last Friday, Savannah received a good report from the pediatrician.

Savannah weighed in at 13 lbs. 6 oz., which is in the 50th percentile. At 26 inches long, she's already in the 95th percentile for her height. We predict that Savannah's going to be a tall girl. Savannah's legs are adorably squeezable ham hocks, but the rest of her body is long and lean. Savannah is growing so quickly that she'll start wearing 6-9-month onesies within the next couple weeks!

Making Memories

This weekend my mom, my brother Michel, and Michel's girlfriend Sherri drove from IL to NC to spend some time with us before they traveled to Wrightsville Beach for some fun in the sun.

Savannah enjoyed meeting her Uncle Michel for the first time, as well as...

...smiling and talking to Grandma Judy and Aunt Renee!

Sweet Feet

Look who discovered her feet this week!
