So in just a few hours Orson and I are on the way to Branson, MO. I am kidnapping him for some well deserved alone time. I think it will be a ton of fun. I went to Branson with my fam when I was younger and I can't wait to show Orson the town. Savannah is staying here in Austin with my sister-in-law while we are gone. Anyway I just wanted to let everyone know in case you were wondering where I disappear to next week. Love You!

6 Month Check-up

So today Savannah and I went to see Dr. Esparza. She did really well with her shots. I always make sure to have a bottle ready for her, and as soon as they are done with her shots she gets her bottle. So far, it has worked wonders. are her stats.
*16 pounds 10 ounces
*26 1/4 inches
*42 centimeter head circumference
The doctor said that she is moving right along. She grew a tons since the last visit....I think she put on something like 3 pounds and grew 2 inches. She went from being right up the middle to being in the 70-75 percentile for height and weight. So there really is a reason why I get tired carrying her all over the place.
Other than the stats here are some more cool skills.
*sitting up by herself
*pulling up
*playing with her toes
*eating just about any jar food
*loves pickles, pasta and potatoes
*talk a bunch (no words though)
*reaches towards person when she wants them to hold (rescue) her
*chews on anything and EVERYTHING including my toes (eww!)
I think that is about all that I can think of right now. She is just tons of fun. She loves to laugh and smile. Whenever we go out people always comment on how much she smiles and how happy she is. When she gets really excited she pants like a little puppy dog. It's hilarious. I'll have to try and get it on video one of these days. Orson and I just like to sit and watch her explore the world. She is definitely a blessing in our lives.
