17 Months

Weight: 20 pounds 2 ounces
Height: 29 1/2 inches
Diapers: Size 4
Clothes: 12-18 months
Sleep: 11-12 hours at night with at least 1 nap during the day
Current loves: car keys, being outside and Elmo. Whenever she sees Elmo's face on anything she starts jumping up and down, so cute!
Dislikes: napping (major sleep strike the last few weeks, but more teeth are coming in so maybe we'll get back to normal soon), when I take the iphone away from her and coming in from outside, even if we have been out there for hours.

It's amazing seeing how quickly Savannah Kate learns new words now and tries to repeat everything you say. Words that she can say now are: dada, momma, pawpaw, Belle, cracker, quack quack, bath, hi, bye, baby, buckle and no. We have to be careful when we say bath because when she hears "bath" she starts saying it over and over and runs to the bathroom and tries to take off her clothes. Have I ever mentioned how much she loves taking baths? She loves it! It's her favorite thing to do all day and she will get upset if you don't put her in once she hears the word bath.

Speaking of taking her clothes off, I caught her trying to take her diaper off the other day! Hopefully that never happens. She has gotten much better at helping me get her dressed and she tries so hard to put her socks and shoes on by herself. This girl loves her shoes :) 

Elmo is her first crush!
This is the only drawer in the kitchen that's not locked so she has a lot of fun with it :)

16 Months

Weight: 19 pounds 14 ounces
Height: 29 1/2 inches
Diapers: Size 4
Clothes: 12 months
Sleep: 11-12 hours at night with 1-2 naps during the day.  Somedays she takes two long naps and somedays she only takes one 30 minute nap.
Current loves: putting one of her coats on, opening any drawer or door she can find and pretending like she is asleep when she is supposed to be napping
Dislikes: eating (she's on a major food strike right now), not getting to go outside (mainly because its cold) and not being held in the morning - she really tries to demand being held for the first hour she is awake.  Never fails - everyday.

Biggest news is that Savannah Kate is offically walking! She thinks it's hilarious every time she takes some steps.  She still crawls around most of the time, then will stop and suddenly take a few steps, laugh out loud and then return to crawling :) 

We have been through a tough time this last month while trying to heal from our miscarriage.  But even through our pain, God gave us a beautiful blessing of seeing our daughter walk for the first time.  She has been our ray of sunshine and once again God's timing was perfect.

 Couldn't get a good 16 month picture and she refused to put down her makeup brush
 Loves watching PBS on the iPad
Who cares if it's cold - we are happy to be playing outside!
