8 Months

It's hard to believe that another month has flown by and Savannah Kate is now 8 months old.  We've had a lot going on in the last month and some big firsts for Savannah Kate.  She is sitting up now, rolling both ways, sleeping on her tummy and has her first tooth!  She went on her first vacation, went to the beach, the pool and the lake all in the last month.  She also rode on a four wheeler and Hunter is very proud to announce that she rode on a horse for the first time! 

Weight: 14 pounds 13 ounces
Height: 26 1/2 inches
Diapers: Size 2
Clothes: 3-6 months and 6 months
Sleep: 10-12 hours at night with 3 naps during the day
Current loves: smiling at strangers, discovering new toys (especially things that are not really toys) and giggling and laughing out loud
Dislikes: getting dressed, having those things that are not really toys taken away from her and still strongly dislikes green vegetables

Within weeks of having her completely on formula, Savannah Kate got pretty sick at her stomach.  It was only a few days before our vacation so the doctor had me switch to a soy formula to see if it would help.  She has seemed to like the taste of it better than the regular and she started feeling better within days.  It could have just been a virus or the new tooth that came in, but we're sticking with the soy for now.

Savannah Kate is still sleeping and eating great.  Changing her diapers are getting a little tougher because she tries to roll around during the process.  I'm learning how to put them on her while she's upside down.  I can only image what it will be like when she's crawling!  She can roll over both directions, but she hasn't figured out yet that she could roll across the room if she wanted to.

We are constantly getting comments about how laid back and mellow she is.  She's also great with strangers and will let anybody hold her.  We've been very blessed to have such a happy little girl! 

 If you look closely you can see my tooth!
