Savannah Jo – FIVE MONTHS OLD!

SJ 5MO_8

Dear Savannah Jo:

There are two things that people always comment about you. First, they say, “Oh, what a pretty baby”! And, it’s true. Of course I’m a bit biased, but little Savannah, you are so adorable. You have creamy, milky white skin with rosy cheeks, a smile that lights up the room, adorable dimples in big, round cheeks and your EYES! Your eyes are breathtakingly gorgeous. It’s funny – while I was pregnant, I prayed for many things for you. I prayed for you to be healthy, to be kind and to have a heart for the Lord. But, I never prayed for you to be beautiful. And yet, I’m convinced God blessed me with the cutest baby of all! 

The other thing people always comment is, “What a happy baby!”. You LOVE meeting new people and it doesn’t matter if it’s your cousins or a stranger at the grocery store – if he or she talk to you, you give him or her a HUGE smile! Now, don’t get me wrong – when you’re hungry or bored, or tired, you definitely let me know! But, you absolutely adore going out and seeing new faces. My little social butterfly…

Daddy’s baseball season has started, which means we don’t see him as much. You usually catch him in the morning before he leaves and sometimes at night before bed. His team also travels quite a bit, which means long weekends with me! But, I hope that all this time together means maybe you’ll say “Mama” first? (Wink, wink!) We love Sundays, because we get to spend the entire day with Dad!

The weather is finally warming up, which means we are back to going on walks in your stroller. The other day, I started jogging for a little big (you know – just to test out the “jogging” stroller) and you started cracking up. I guess it was pretty funny watching Mom run, huh? We’ll be jogging a lot more this Spring, trying to get rid of this 10 lbs of pregnancy weight that just won’t seem to disappear. You were worth it though! 🙂

I love you Savannah. It’s crazy to think that a month from you, you will be half a year old! And, we’ll be gearing up for the Royal’s Season to begin! 

Your Mom.
