I can't believe our baby girl is 4 months! Time is flying by! We went to her 4 month appointment yesterday and here are her stats...
Weight: 15 lbs 2 ozs (88%)
Height: 24 1/2 inches (52%)
The best part about the appt. was that we can start her on rice cereal! That is music to a mothers ears when her baby doesn't take a bottle! We had fun with it last night...she is definitely interested, but doesn't really get it. She still prefers her hands!
We love you Savannah!

So, my friend Natalie had this on her inspiring...a must read prop. 8 supporters...

Elder Neal A. Maxwell, BYU Devotional 1978

"Make no mistake about it, brothers and sisters, in the months and years ahead, events are likely to require each member to decide whether or not he will follow the First Presidency. Members will find it more difficult to halt longer between two opinions. President Marion G. Romney said, many years ago, that he had 'never hesitated to follow the counsel of the Authorities of the Church even though it crossed my social, professional or political life.' "This is hard doctrine, but it is particularly vital doctrine in a society which is becoming more wicked. In short, brothers and sisters, not being ashamed of the gospel of Jesus Christ includes not being ashamed of the prophets of Jesus Christ. . . . Your discipleship may see the time when such religious convictions are discounted. . . . This new irreligious imperialism seeks to disallow certain opinions simply because those opinions grow out of religious convictions.

"Resistance to abortion will be seen as primitive. Concern over the institution of the family will be viewed as untrendy and unenlightened.... Before the ultimate victory of the forces of righteousness, some skirmishes will be lost. Even in these, however, let us leave a record so that the choices are clear, letting others do as they will in the face of prophetic counsel. There will also be times, happily, when a minor defeat seems probable, but others will step forward, having been rallied to rightness by what we do. We will know the joy, on occasion, of having awakened a slumbering majority of the decent people of all races and creeds which was, till then, unconscious of itself. Jesus said that when the fig trees put forth their leaves, 'summer is nigh.' Thus warned that summer is upon us, let us not then complain of the heat."

Caden and buds already...probably because we make them look at eachother all the time!
We had a fun Halloween! Doesn't Savannah make the cutest pumpkin? We woke up and went to Cottonwood Elementary to see old friends and enjoy the Halloween festivities with a bunch of crazy dressed up kids. It was so good to see everyone!
On Halloween night we had a family party at Josh's parents house and then last night we went to a party without Savannah where Josh and I dressed pictures, will just have to enjoy our little pumpkin!

What do you think?

So the majority of people have thought that Savannah looks like me...she does, but we just saw this picture of Josh for the first time and think she is a pretty good mix...what do you think?JOSH
