Pumpkin Patch

The Dallas Arboretum is one of my favorite places to visit here.  Especially when they have the pumpkin patch, there are thousands of pumpkins and SK loved climbing on them all.  It's been such a great place to take Savannah Kate - I can turn her loose and let her run!  Usually that means I'm running after her most of the time, but since there is so much to look at she doesn't run too far.  On Mondays they had a petting zoo and a Kindermusik class that the kids loved.  Here are some pictures from a few of our visits this fall.

SK's 2nd Birthday Party

Savannah Kate's 2nd birthday party was such a fun day!  Her party had a sunflower/fall theme.  We had plans of having this party at the park, but a cold front came through and we moved it to our house.  SK wore an adorable sunflower outfit and had so much fun playing with her friends.  She loved it when everybody sang Happy Birthday and started clapping.  She got several really fun gifts (a kitchen, dress up clothes, a vacuum, the Cinderella movie to name a few) but if I had to pick I would say her favorite gift was the Pablo doll :) She truly never gets tired of Pablo! 

What a blessing!  A big thanks to our family (who had to drive a long way) and our friends who made us feel so loved.  Thank you so much for all your support during these last two years!

Savannah Kate is 2!

Savannah Kate must have known it was her birthday because she woke up bright and early, ready to play!  We started the day doing her favorite which is watching morning cartoons in our bed.  She loves to cozy up between me and Hunter, get under the covers and watch "toons".  I love these kind of mornings!  We had blueberry muffins for breakfast and she was very excited about the Pablo birthday candle (I should have turned it around for the picture).  After breakfast, Savannah Kate went to Mother's Day Out and took cookies to her class.  Her friends and teachers all sang Happy Birthday to her at lunch.

SK was very surprised when I came to pick her up after school with a Pablo balloon (the Backyardigans) and Mimi was with me!  Mimi brought a Rapunzel dress up outfit with high heels and a wig and she loved it!  Especially the high heels :)  We had dinner at Corner Bakery where they have her favorite mac and cheese, then finished the night at Sprinkles with some cupcakes.  We had a wonderful day celebrating Savannah Kate!  I still can't believe my baby is 2.  I just want to freeze her, I'm loving this age right now! 

Savannah Kate, just a few things about you that I love: how you like to say hi to all the animals when we're out on a walk, the way you kiss me when I drop you off at school, the way you greet Dada when he gets home from work, the way you wave bye bye to me every night before bed, the way you dance when you hear any kind of music and clap whenever a song is over, how you can have full conversations with your baby dolls, how you point to the park when we're outside, the way you laugh when swinging, the way you say "uh oh" and "okay", how excited you get when you first see me in the morning, the way you say hi to Belle everyday and try to give her hugs, the way you like to walk around on your tip toes, all your facial expressions, the way you like to wear our shoes, how much you love Pablo or anything with Pablo on it, how you know how to find Pablo on you tube on my iPhone, the way you eat sandwiches, how you fold your hands when we pray, how you like to wear all my bracelets and take your purse with you everywhere, and the way you say Mama and Dada with such love and enthusiasm in your voice.  I could go on and on.  I love you Little Kate!

Happy Birthday Savannah Kate!  We love you!

24 Months

Weight: 23 pounds (15th percentile)
Height: 32 1/4 inches (15th percentile)
Diapers: Size 5
Clothes: 18-24 months
Sleep: 10-11 hours at night and one 2 hour nap during the day
Current loves: wearing momma and dada's shoes around the house, carrying her purse around (especially likes to take it when we leave the house), shredded cheese, pickles, fruit and crackers
Dislikes: sitting in a high chair in restaurants, getting her nose wiped, when I don't let her play with my iphone and mac and cheese from anywhere except Corner Barkery or Panera Bread

 Just loves her purse!
At her 2 year check up doing surprise face :)
 Okay, so I've mentioned how much she loves the show "The Backyardigans", and Pablo is her favorite character.  Found this Pablo costume for only $5 and SK was so excited!  Pablo is a boy, but who cares :)
At her buddy Brooks' fun birthday party
This is how we shopped for over an hour at Target one day.  She even filled the bottom with canned foods.
Went to Bentonville for a weekend and got to meet baby Scarlett.  Savannah Kate was teaching her how to read or maybe to count to one.
Patrick and Danielle Williams were in town so we planned to catch a Ranger's game together, but since it was raining we finally got to take a tour of the Cowboy's Stadium.  Very impressive!

Just doing a little dancing in the park :)
