STOP growing, Savannah!

We had an awesome Christmas! My whole family was up here and it was so fun to be at my parents cabin all together. Savannah had a great 1st Christmas...spoiled as always! We woke up at the cabin and had Christmas with my fam and then drove down to the valley to spend the rest of the day with the Chase's. It was perfect to have both families so close for the holidays!
Yep, that's my baby, the one crying with her head down...all this craziness exhausts her!

We figured out why we can't get a good picture of our "Savannah Smiles." Our camera is very delayed and a little red light comes on first, which is what distracts her and is why we get a stare. Maybe next Christmas I will ask for a new camera!
Anyway, this week, more than any other week, Josh and I have been amazed at how big Savannah is. She must have had a growth spurt or something. She is outgrowing all her clothes, eating everything, and playing with her toys like crazy. We are so in love with her...her huge smile, her giggles, her voice, her spastic excitement...everything about her is perfect! I can't believe she is already 5 months old. We can't get enough of her!

Merry Christmas!

I tried to get this cute picture as my "header" at the top. Didn't work out so well...someone will have to teach me one day! Anyway, I love this picture and I LOVE Savannah's Christmas outfit! You will have to excuse the hot pink bow. We did this last minute. I hope everyone is enjoying the holidays...it's been hard for us to get into Christmas this year, but we're trying. My whole family is coming up for a white Christmas. I am so excited (not for the white part!)
p.s. Savannah has slept through the night for the last 3 nights! Yahoo! I don't have my hopes up though, you never know with this little one...things are always changing!

Belated Thanksgiving...

Before I update you on our amazing Thanksgiving, I wanted to include a little photo shoot of my 4 1/2 month old...why is it that whenever I try to take her picture I get the face she is making in the top picture? She is not interested in the noises, songs, dances I do to try to get her to smile...she is only interested in the flash/silver camera, and her favorite blanket. I swear she is the most smiley baby out there, I just need someone to help me distract her!

We went to California for Thanksgiving. I only took 3 pictures. Bummer! It was so much fun and the weather was to die for. There is nothing better then Josh spending 5 uninterrupted days with us. Thanksgiving morning we ran a 5k. Did I say ran? Maybe Josh did, but I walked most of it! I am so out of shape! Josh then went Jet-skiing and after we had Thanksgiving dinner. No wonder I am so out of shape...it was yummy.

The rest of our time was spent hanging out with the family, both mine and Josh's, celebrating my Birthday and playing with our baby girl!
Funny story...Josh's mom, aunt and I were shopping in Santa Monica with Savannah on me in the front carrier. I guess women in CA aren't around babies very often because over 15 people stopped to look at her. They especially wanted to know how I got that bow to stick to her bald head. I made comment after the 3rd person stopped me, but by the 20th we were laughing so hard. It was like she had never been out in public before. Babies in Utah just aren't that special I guess!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We are so thankful for everything we have...now on to Christmas...can't wait!
