10 Months Old!

Dear Savannah,

You are 10 months old...the time is flying by, but you are still my little princess. Your joy is amazing, it inspires me daily and reminds me of God's love. You touch all those who see you with your joy, it's beautiful. You still are scooting around on your bottom, but you are very proficient at this unique way of locomotion. You pull to stand and cruise along the furniture with ease. You are sleeping in your own bed, waking up about once per night, and "crying it out" for you usually means 10-15 minutes; not too shabby! You still ADORE your brother, and he loves you! He likes to sing, "Hey, little cuteness, hey little cute!" and say, "She is SO adorable!" It's precious! You still say Mama and Dada interchangeably, eat solids including puffs/cheerios, wear 12-18 month clothes and size 4 diapers. In 2 months, you will be one year old, I can't even believe it. I am starting to plan your birthday party, how fun! I love you so much, and I am so blessed to have you in my life. You truly are my sunshine.

"and said to Him, 'Do you not hear what these children are saying?' And Jesus said to them, 'Yes; have you never read, "Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies you have prepared praise for yourself?"'"

9 Months Old!

Dear Savannah,

You are 9 months old! You have grown by leaps and bounds this month. You are pulling to stand, creeping along furniture, throwing balls, and scooting on your bottom (your version of crawling). You only say Da-da, and you are certainly Daddy's little girl. You are very patient with your brother, and Jackson is learning how to be much more gentle with you. You love to watch him play, and you really really want to play with whatever it is he is playing with. You just started eating puffs today; otherwise, your diet is still breast milk and baby food. You had your doctor's appointment today, and you weigh 21 pounds and are 29.25 inches long. Wow! You still wear size 4 diapers and size 12 months clothes. Tonight, we are trying you in your crib in your room; you are getting way too big to sleep with Mommy and Daddy! Your favorite toy is probably Jackson's plastic tools, but you pretty much will play with anything. You have such a twinkle in your eye, you are such a happy baby. We love you so much!

Love, Mommy
