Savannah's ears...

We took Savannah on Saturday to get her ears pierced. She started crying as soon as I held her head. The girl did one right after the other so it was done in less than a minute and she calmed down as soon as we put a bottle in her mouth but it was so hard seeing her so sad. She looks awful cute though!!! You can't really see it in the picture though. I'll try to get a better one this week.

Happy Father's Day!

We had a great day today. My parents kept Savannah last night so Pat and I went to the sprint car races and we ran into some friends. We just hung out and had a really good time. Then we got up and picked up some steaks and went to my parents. We had steaks (I had a Tofurkey Kielbasa), red potatoes, squash and corn. It was all so good. I had a couple Shiner Blondes too. I have to say that may be one of my top beer choices now. I think I still like my Corona better though. lol. When we got home we fed the baby some cereal. Which by the way she loves. She was eating away at it. We stopped feeding her because we didn't know if it was okay. lol. The doctor said it usually takes them a while to get a hang of things but this girl eats it right up. I'm sure it's fine but I don't want to give her too much. Savannah then got a bath and went to bed. It was a really nice and relaxing day. I even got some sun.

She's already a daddy's girl. She'll just sit and watch him play his game. She likes all the action on the screen.

Fun day at Kemah...

On Sunday, Savannah and I went to Kemah with my Aunt Sheila, Veronica, Beth, Mia, Emma and Ally. It was a good day other than it got a little warm and we were running from shaded spot to shaded spot. They don't have a lot of shade there. Plus I was nervous putting sunblock on the baby since I never asked her dr if it was okay (I finally asked and she said yes, yes, yes so I guess I don't have to worry about it anymore). Savannah rode in the double stroller with Emma and she loved it. She was talking away and playing with her toy. Emma kept trying to touch her. It was super cute. We ate at Brick Oven Pizza and it was yummy. As we were leaving, Beth's car wouldn't start and can you believe we couldn't find jumper cables. Her battery was dead and it is weird that it happened to her because my battery just went out two weeks ago. Luckily they don't live too far away and her husband came to the rescue.

4 month stats...

Savannah had her 4 month check up yesterday. She had to get a shot in both legs and then a medicine orally.She is growing beautifully as her pediatrician always says. She is 14 1/2 lbs and 25 1/4" long. She is my little chubbers. Her dr said she could start trying out cereal so we tried it tonight. It was sooo cute. Of course she only had a couple spoons full but the dr said it's good to get her used to eating and then at 6 months she'll be ready to start eating all the good stuff. My goal is to make all her baby food. I also want to do organic fruits and veggies. I will buy some organic baby food for when we are out and stuff but for the most part she will have all fresh stuff. I feel like this is way healthier for her.

I haven't been breastfeeding (pumping and feeding by a bottle) for a month now and I am kind of having regrets for not sticking with the pumping. I hope the next baby will not have a latching problem and I will be able to breastfeed. Actual breastfeeding was so rough on me and Savannah and I just couldn't handle it any longer. Also, she was always hungry and I didn't feel like it was right for us. Pumping absolutely sucks and I am very proud of myself for doing it for 3 solid months. I'm also not sure if Savannah has a milk allergy and if the breast milk was what was causing her horrible fussiness. Once I quit giving her breast milk and put her on sensitive formula she was a way happier baby. Oh well, it's over now and maybe next time it will work out better. I guess I shouldn't beat myself up over it.

Here are a few pictures of my poor baby and her bandaids and some of her eating cereal.

4 months...

So I am getting pretty bad about blogging and I hate it. I wish I had the words to fill a post every day. Most days I don't even get on the computer. I try to get better. Maybe some day I will be. Now that I've been getting Savannah to sleep around 8 maybe I can start posting more. Now enough ranting about

My once newborn baby is no longer little. She is getting so big. I swear she grows like a weed. She can now touch the floor in her jumper. I had a book underneath her feet and I kept switching it out to a thinner book. My parents came over for dinner today and my step dad said he bet she didn't need the book anymore. We took it out and there her feet hit the ground. It kind of makes me sad. I was snuggling her to sleep tonight and realized how long she's getting.

She's been chewing on everything. Her toys are now getting lots of use. Her favorite has to be her Sophie the Giraffe. We take it everywhere. It's like a paci to her. She just chews away on that thing. I read that most parents love that toy but I didn't think it was going to be this great. She goes to her 4 month check up tomorrow so I'll know her stats then. She has to get more shots and I am so not looking forward to that.

I've had to put away Savannah's 0-3 month clothes. And soon I will need to put away her swing and chair. I have a feeling the swing will be hard to part with. She loves it. When she gets cranky we'll put her in there and she'll usually drift away to sleepy land. She has an outside swing at my parents and likes to fall asleep in it as well when we swing her. It's too cute.

I need to do some blog updates on everything that has been going on. Hopefully in the next few days I'll post some pictures so be on the lookout! :)
