My Favorite Friend

Jackson has been telling me, "I love you, Mommy, you're my favorite friend." It's so adorable! And he has been singing some worship songs that he hears JW playing around the house. It's amazing, he knows all the words! He can sing, "Forever Reign" and "Love Came Down" very well. His latest favorite thing to watch on TV is AutoBGood, a Christian version of Cars that tries to teach a moral lesson. It's pretty cute, and a lot less violent than Toy Story, so we're taking a break from Woody and Buzz for awhile. I didn't realize how a seemingly innocent movie like Toy Story actually is a little advanced for a 2 year old. Who knew? Jackson is behaving a lot better every day, and he is so funny and such a little charmer. He cracks me up. He is a lot less violent, but he still hates getting his hair washed in the tub and changing his poopy diapers. He has been reading potty books more and "Pacifiers are Not Forever," so maybe he's thinking about growing up a little, we'll see. I'm starting to plan his 3 year old birthday party, which will be great fun, I can't believe how grown up he is getting!

6 months old!

Dearest Savannah, you turned 6 months old this week! I cannot believe that you have been with us for half a year now! You are such a delightful little girl. You are constantly smiling and laughing, taking in everything around you with your big eyes. You can sit up all by yourself and play with toys. Right now, you love to read "So Big" with Baby Elmo; you love playing with your triangle toy and your "O Ball," and you still love to amuse yourself in your exersaucer. You're pretty much done with the swing, although you will occasionally take a nap in it. We're trying to get you to sleep more in your pack and play, and you are doing a really good job. Your primary means of transportation is rolling around; I'll put you down in one spot on your back, turn around, and when I look again you're halfway across the room! You still adore your brother and you get a kick out of watching him do practically anything. He loves you too. :) You wear size 4 diapers and size 9 month clothes. You have your check up in a few days, so we will soon have your updated height and weight. We haven't given you your first solids yet; we're planning on doing so tomorrow, when Daddy and I can both be around to share in that special moment with you. We love you so much, sweetie!

Weight 19lbs 8 oz
Height 27 1/4 inches

Savannah is rolling over! Only to her right side, but it's almost immediate, when you put her down on her back, she rolls right over onto her belly. She's getting more and more comfy on her tummy, so hopefully (? am I crazy?) she will start to creep/crawl; Jackson pretty much skipped that stage and went straight to walking. Also, a few days after my 5 month update, she moved up to size 4 diapers (that's one size less than Jackson!) due to the amount of blowouts she was having daily. It's much better now. :)
Today, Jackson got his hair cut for the 3rd time, he looks so handsome!

What did you say?

Jackson said the funniest thing the other day! Grammi had come to visit, without her twin sister Aunt Jane, whom Jackson also adores. When Grammi walked into the house, Jackson said, "Where's the other Grammi?" He had never said that before, always referring to her as Aunt Jane. I was cracking up. I love you Jackson!
