Savannah is 8 months old! I can't imagine life without our sweet little miss. She is truly such a blessing to our family, and I thank God every day for sending her to our family. At 8 months, Savannah has definitely found her appetite. She LOVES food! Much like her mama I suppose. This girl can pack it in I'm tellin' ya. She eats way more than Brooklyn and Troy ever did at this age. A typical day consists with her nursing in the morning (usually about 6), then going back to sleep for another hour and a half (bless her!!). Then she will have breakfast, a couple handfuls of puffs (my size hand, not hers!), a 2nd foods container of fruit, and 3.5 oz of whole yogurt. All that eating is really exhausting and she is ready for a nap around 9:30. She sleeps for a couple hours, wakes up, nurses, plays for a bit, then is ready for lunch. Lunch consists of a few puffs, and another 2nd food size fruit or veggie. Occasionally she'll still act hungry, so I'll give her some more yogurt. Again, eating is exhausting, and after lunch she's ready for her second nap of the day, around 1:30 or 2. She sleeps for another 1 1/2-2 hours. At 5 she is ready for dinner; more puffs, 2nd food vegetables/meat, and occasionally some more fruit. Then she is down for the count by 6, but not until she nurses some more of course! I tell ya, this baby is the angel of all babies. She makes my job so easy! At 8 months, Savannah now has 3 bottom teeth poking through, with the 4th just about there. Her two top teeth are also looking close to coming in. We are working on her cognitive learning and she knows all the sounds of the letters (haha totally joking! I'm SO not that kind of mom) But she does say "da da da da," "ma ma ma ma," "ya ya ya ya," and "gah gah gah gah." And if I do say so myself, she is dang cute when she talks! She can clap her hands, LOVES to dance, and loves playing "peek-a-boo," and "patty-cake." Her two favorite people in the world are probably Brooklyn and Troy. She still is content to just sit and play, and shows no interest in crawling, but definitely loves to stand, assisted of course, and loves her jumperoo. We certainly are not pushing the crawling, I am loving this easy stage! We love our blue-eyed angel baby!!!
We recently had a photo-shoot done of Savannah and all her chubby cuteness (by elbyphotography.com). You can see the pictures here: Savannah's 8 month photos
