The one with the 9 month old

Say what?!! Yup, Savannah is a big 9 month old! It's hard for me to believe that she has been part of our family for as long as I was pregnant with her. She has definitely made our family more complete! Savannah continues to steal the hearts of many, including her big sister and brother, and of course her Mommy and Daddy. She has all of us wrapped around her little finger. And honestly, everywhere we go, she flirts and smiles at anyone who notices her. I am constantly getting comments such as,"Wow, what a happy baby!" Savannah had her 9 month well-check at the Dr this past Wednesday. I went in to her appointment knowing that she had a cold, but didn't really think it was a big deal since she hadn't really shown any discomfort (other than the night before she had a hard time getting to sleep). Well, this kid had a double ear infection!! The poor thing! The Dr. said they were actually pretty bad too. My point is, this just proves,yet again, how mild-tempered and mellow she is. However, that being said, she is starting to get a tad feisty. I knew it was only a matter of time. :) She can scream and squeal with the best of them! She is very close to crawling (but we are NOT pushing her!), she LOVES food, has started waving buh-bye to everyone (even objects haha), says Mama and Mom (which always catches me of guard, umm hello, you're a baby call me Mama or Mommy!!), has 4 bottom teeth, loves to dance...to anything! Including songs the kids will sing, and loves to clap. She adores her little leap-frog picnic basket, and is starting to really adore her babies. And she shows them love by eating their faces. Savannah also loves to "sing" in Sacrament meeting, and will grab hold of the hymn book the second we enter the pew. And when we start to sing, she does her own version of singing, "Ahhhyayayaya." It's definitely her favorite part of church, and admittedly, mine as well. Another little thing she has been doing lately is shaking her head back and forth when we say "no,no,no." We can already tell discipline is something she laughs at! We love our sweet Savannah!!

I LOVE this baby age! So fun and their personalities seem to explode! Enjoy her, I swear time goes faster with baby #3...well, except for when you're in the checkout line at naptime with three overtired kids...that's when time freezes temporarily for ya ;)

Nine months! I can't believe it. She definitely sounds like she's coming into her own. So sorry to hear about the ear infections! It's amazing what kids can go through and not even make a peep about it. She is sweet as could be, I can't believe it's just another 9 months until she's in nursery!
