This phase is gonna fly by, so baby just hold on, ‘cause it won't be like this for long

So, Savannah is now two and a half months old. She is officially sleeping in her own room, and she is in the 90th percentile with weight. At her last check up, she was 12 pounds 11 ounces and 23.5 inches long! She has adorable cheeks and a nice round tummy - haha! She has learned to smile now, which is a lot of fun and she makes all kinds of sounds that aren't crying. It's pretty cute! She is also tired of being so young - she is ready to be sitting up and moving around with the rest of the big kids. She is almost ready to be put in her activity center or to sit in her Bumbo, but I want her head control to be a little stronger before I let her loose.

She's overall a sweet baby, but we discovered that she has reflux, which explains a lot of her fussiness. We are going back to the doctor today to see how she is doing and to see if there might be a better medicine for her. She's had her first cold and I think some sort of bug - there has been some excessive throwing up the last few days! Poor girl. But she still smiles and wants to snuggle, so she's not doing to bad.

So, I have a hodgepodge of pictures of her - the first one is the day she turned two months. The rest are random but funny or adorable and I thought I would share!

She's our little monkey.

Snow day!

She found her thumb!

Her first play date with Kendall - Cari's little girl. Cari is one of my closest friends from high school.

The dress she wore on the day of her blessing. My mother in law made it for her - it was beautiful and perfect!!

Extend your hand and I will lick it, throw the stick I'll run and get it, for just a bone I'll be forever in your favor...

So, Savannah's biggest fan, other than her parents, would have to be Bowser. Sure, he still has moments where he is jealous of the attention she gets, but we try hard to make sure he still gets some too. He has really taken to her though, and is so cute with her. When she cries, he goes to check on her. He is always coming up and giving her kisses, and he lays on the floor next to her while she is on her mat or in her chair. We have moved her into her crib now, and just this morning he has pushed her door open twice to go in and make sure she is ok. I think my favorite thing he does is when we are playing fetch with him, he will come and drop the toy next to her or in her lap and wait for her to throw it for him. They are going to have so much fun when they get bigger! Here are some pictures of the dynamic duo - my two little ones :)

She actually likes it when he kisses her...we don't let it happen for to long though!

He's protecting us - he heard a noise from the driveway.

Smile and maybe tomorrow, you'll see the sun come shining through, for you...

I have so many updates to do! I'm going to start with a series of my favorite pictures of Savannah. One day while I was holding her, she made these adorable faces while she was waking up, and I'm so glad my camera has a phone. I was able to get shots of them all. I think these were taken when she was one month old. (Can you believe she's 2.5 months already?! I can't!)
