Giggles, squeels, and coos

Our little Savannah is 4 months old! She is still such a sweet, calm little thing, but has definitely found her voice! She LOVES to squeal and scream, and we are just glad she seems to have a voice-box after all! We would definitely take these little screams of delight over crying any day. Lately she has really been enjoying her hands, and pretty much anything else she can get in her mouth. Her bottom tooth that was poking up, seems to have receded, but is now starting to protrude yet again, we're thinking to stay this time. Savannah is still sleeping through the night, about 6:30-6, then back to sleep until about 8:30. We're hoping it stays this way!! I honestly can't say enough how easy she is. She sleeps through the night, doesn't spit up, doesn't cry, and is, for the most part, always happy! She thoroughly enjoys watching her big brother and sister run around her while she sits happily in the jumperoo. Her most ticklish body parts are her little hips, especially when you scrunch her legs up. At her well-check the other day, the Dr. was checking her hips and scrunching up her legs and could not stop giggling! Of course Dr. Schrier thought that was hilarious. The possibly not so funny thing is she has to get an x-ray of her hips, because they may be dis-located. I guess it's common with breech girls, which Savannah wasn't breech, but it still happens in other cases. So it's mainly a precaution we are taking to get her checked out. If they are dis-located, she will just need to wear a brace around her hips that keeps her knees scrunched up for a month or two. Anyway...Savannah also decided to bring her 4 month birthday in with a bang...RSV. A very mild case of RSV however, thank heavens!! My other two kids NEVER got sick as infants, but I guess that's what happens when you have older siblings catching germs and bringing them home! I'm sure this is the first of many illnesses she will catch from them. Dirty little buggers. Just kidding of course. Kind of. :) Anyway, happy 4 months Savannah!!

Her 4 month stats:
Weight: 14 lbs 3 oz (50%)
Length: 25 1/2 in (90%!!!) She is our LONG baby!!
Head circ.: 40 1/2 cm (25%) They're pretty sure someone goofed when they measured her head at her 2 month appointment because it didn't grow much.

"Hi, my name is Chubby." Troy loves doing "Chubby" to her. Poor Savannah.

She is a drooling fool lately!

The "helicopter brother." Always hovering :) Also, notice the newly finished chairs!!...finally!

Our happy little princess. She's our blue-eyed girl!
