The Time Has Come Again's that time of month again. Portrait time. She is now 3 months old, and growing like a weed. Orson measured her yesterday with his trusty tape measure and she was 24 inches. Today at grandpa's house we weighed her with offical baby scale she weighed 13 and a half pounds.

She is playing with toys now. At Grandma's we put her in the exersaucer and she had so much fun. She didn't even care that no one was paying attention to her.

Also I took her to Sears last week and had her portraits taken. I've decided that I am gonna do three of the poses that we took when she was two weeks old, I'm gonna do every three months. That way I can really see how much she's changed.

Then of course, we just had fun.

She did a really good job, but at the end she definately let us know that she was done.

Things are still pluggin along

So, a week ago I went back to work. Although I am only going back part-time, once a week, just to bring in a little extra money. I am actually at a different location which happens to be digital, so it's been alot of fun. I love the freedom it gives me. Savannah hangs out at my in-laws with grandma, grandpa, Aunt Merridy, her cousin Alexandria and her cousin Jessica. They love getting time with least that's what they tell me. I have also set-up a photography website, so that if anyone wants freelance work I have a site that you can place orders and a lab that will print them. Not that I am going to be out pursuing that, but just in case it's needed, it's ready. And last but not least, I am getting serious about my Partylite business again. I loved doing shows for the short while that I did it, and I can't wait for people to start hosting more. Hint! HINT! So I'm postin a m ess of pictures...since I'm behind again. These first few show my holiday project, I made slings for all my sister-in-laws, and I must say that they turned out pretty cute. This is Merridy holding Jessica in the cradled position. She was excited because she can use the tail to cover her up if she needs to breastfeed.

This one show Jessica sitting up. She loved it becasue she was still close to mom, she is DEFINITELY a momma's girl.

As far as Miss Savannah goes. She is growing a mile a minute. She is up to eating 8 ounces every 3-4 hours during the day. She usually goes to bed anywhere between 10pm-12am and sleeps until 9am-11am. I love her tons. One of the problems we have been having this week is that when she wakes up the bed has been drenched, so I am trying a size 2 diaper at night, we'll see how that goes. The other nighttime problem we've had lately it that when she's tired and it's time for bed, she screams bloody murder for like 5-10 minutes and there is nothing you can do to console her. It's so annoying.

This is her after eating those 8 ounces of formula. She always looks drunk after she eats. She literally just flipped over in my lap. She was Done!

I almost have to laugh at her because her face looks so funny when she does it. Savannah has also begun to find the beauty of toys. She is getting much better at spending time on her tummy. We have this little mirror thing that she loves looking at.

When she is on her back she like to look at her underwater themed mobile. The other night I left her on her back under her little arch and she played by herself for like a full hour....well almost...I think she fell asleep for a few minutes somewhere in there. Oh, I almost forgot she has two favorite toys...a Baby Einstien star that sings and link-a-dos. She loves those silly little rings so much. I got them to hook some toys to her carrier, and she just wants the rings. She's funny! Hmmm, what else...oh! She is cooing and laughing alot more now. If I put her feet to her cheeks she laughs like crazy. Of course I can't get her really good laughs on camera, she gets shy.

Big Smiles for Mom

Just so darn sweet.

Yup, we are already teaching how to pray before going to bed.

She has also found her tongue...she licks everything repetitively. YUCK!

And she's done...can't you tell...She always tucks her little chin down in her neck and snorts. She's cute. Any takers?

P.S. I took her to get her three month portraits today, so I should be able to post hose sometime tomorrow.

This is thanks to my friend Allison...she had this on her page and I loved it so I stole it. This will put to rest all the debate. She a perfect mix!

It's Been a While

So as you can see, the poor old blog has taken a backseat to life for the time being. The really sad thing is that we really haven't been doing anything. New Years Eve, my mom watched Savannah and Orson and I went to a friend's house for a little get-together. Orson made root beer for everyone, he loves doing that. Of course we got the ooo's and ahhhh's from the crowd because of his keg and tap. But it was fun. We came home about 11:30 and I then spent the next half hour sitting in the bathroom with an upset stomach. Way to start the year I tell ya. Hopefully that was not a sign. Wednesday the 2nd, Mom, Desi, Logan, Savannah and I went to see The Polar Express in 3-D, which by the way I think I'll make a new Holiday was incredible. Mom left the next morning, and Desi and Logan stayed until Sunday. We had fun just hanging out, and playing Ratatouille on the Wii. It's addicting. Other than that life has been moving along. It's hard to believe that a year ago, we didn't even know that we were pregnant or, how much our life would change during 2007. Here are some pictures of our last week, out farwell to Grandma Karen, and our time with Logan and Desi.
