My baby is ONE!!!!

Wow, even a week later, and I still can't believe it! How did she turn into a big girl? How is my little tiny baby one?! I remember bringing her home from the hospital like it was YESTERDAY. I remember how sweetly little she was, and how I would just hold her for hours because I knew how fast it was going to go, and yet I'm still not ready. She's SO big. And so smart! I know every momma says that, but Lord, she is SO smart! Some of our milestones.....

Savannah has 8 teeth, is 20 lbs 9 oz and 29 1/4" long (at birth she was 8 lbs 3 oz and 19 3/4" long :0) )

She knows how to sign "all done" and "more", give high fives, give kisses, give hugs, and waves "bye-bye" and claps when we say "yay!!". We are working on the sign for milk now.

She crawls EVERYWHERE and LOVES to push around her ride on toy!!!

She sings, talks, babbles CONSTANTLY, but her only real words are mama and dada.

She drinks all her water from a straw sippy cup, and we are working on giving her breastmilk from a sippy as well.

She LOVES people food. Her favorites are: corn, tomatoes, bananas, cheese and chicken.

Bath time is her absolute favorite! Lately she's actually been "swimming" in the tub and loves it! If we would let her she would stay in the tub for hours!

A lot of people have asked me how long I plan to nurse Savannah. I plan to let her wean herself. We are working on milk from her straw sippy during the day and nursing only at night. We are also working on sleeping through the night, and I'll be the very first to admit that this is her biggest issue. Savvy still gets up multiple times a night to nurse and it's wearing me down! We are going to have to be firm with her because she's so smart and knows how to get her way, but she's my baby and I'm not ready to subject her to that yet.

Savannah is funny, and loving, but sassy and spunky as well! I love my silly little peanut!
