Our little precious toddler today
Simply unbelieveable....my baby is 1 today. We spent some of last night in the same way we spent it a year ago. Not sleeping well with extra weight in my abdomen area :). The only difference was that Savannah was curled up on the outside of my stomach (and she is about 14 pounds heavier).
She finally cut 3 teeth this week and her nose was running so bad last night, she kept waking up unable to breathe well. So at 1am and 2 am and 3am AND 4am, I got up, tried to suction her nose, then hold her and rock her until she calmed back down.
Whew - after all that wishing that my baby wasn't turning 1, I am definitely glad I am past that no-sleep-newborn-phase!
Here is a little video of Timothy singing Happy Birthday to Savannah first thing this morning.

It's a hit!
We celebrated with a gourmet lunch of hotdogs, french fries and macaroni and cheese for lunch. Savannah used her new Dora bowl and plate from the Pier family.
Savannah spotted her balloons halfway through eating her lunch.

Yum, yum birthday cake. Savannah was very timid at first then got the hang of it. I was freaking out trying to take this video because I thought she was going to burn her finger.
After a bath and some new clothes, Savannah was ready to ride her horse again.
We keep waiting to see if a new baby cousin arrives on Savannah's birthday. Right now Missi's tummy looks like a pumpkin.
We have Savannah's well-baby checkup on Monday, so I'll update this post with her most recent measurements.
