4 Month Checkup and Shots!

Today (actually yesterday now), Savannah turned 4 months old! Yippeee! She is getting so big so fast! I can't believe how fast the time has gone by! So today, we made the dreaded trip to the pediatrician to get a checkup and some more shots! After her reaction to her two month shots, I decided to split them up! So she only got two shots and one oral one, and we will go back in about two weeks for the other shots!
Weight - 12 lbs 5 oz
Height - 24.25 in
The pediatrician said she looked great and her weight gain was good! He also said I could start feeding her some stage 1 baby food! So tonight I gave her some green beans! Yummy! She didn't eat all of it, but ate almost half the container. Good enough for me for the first time! Will post some pictures tomorrow! It's late now and Savannah is finally sleeping! So.... off to sleep I go!

Happy Anniversary and Cereal

This week has been exciting! Michael and I had our 2nd wedding anniversary yesterday! To celebrate (Mom and Dad kept Savannah) and we went out to eat at Texas de Brazil! It was tasty as ever! Also, Savannah got to eat cereal for the first time! Now... I know she isn't quite 4 months old, but since she has had cereal in her bottles for a long time now, I thought I would try it out! She did pretty good and ate a lot of it. Although, she was more interested in her hands! We all think she is teething now. She is drooling a lot, and is constantly chewing on her hands! Maybe a tooth will appear soon! Here are are few pictures! I also put a few of her Halloween costume!

First Laugh

Last night we were trying to get Savannah to go to sleep, but she just wouldn't! She was fighting it, and just couldn't seem to fall asleep. So I decided to give her some more milk. And when she was done with it, she started to smile with the bottle in her mouth. Then out of no where, she laughed for the first time! It was so cute! Now she has tried to laugh before, but this one was a real laugh! I was shocked and then started to laugh, then she laughed again! I tried to make her do it again, but no more! Oh well!

Wild Weekend

Michael, my family and I had a crazy weekend! I went to work on Halloween night and by that morning, I thought I was getting sick. My stomach was hurting really bad that night after I ate, and then by 5am my side was hurting. I got home and was trying to tough it out, but I just couldn't!

So by 2pm I was going to Care Now! Michael stayed home (because his boys were here for the weekend), so Mom took me! I got there and shortly after that they took my blood and noticed that my white blood cell count was really high. Off we went to go back home so Michael could take me to the ER. And so mom could get Savannah packed off to my sister's house!

We got there about 4pm and it didn't take long for them to get me checked in! Thank the Lord! And soon after that they got me an IV started, which of course was great because then I could have some morphine for the pain. Then we waited for the CT scan and then after they knew it was my appendix. So... off to surgery I went at 11:30pm!

All is great now! I was released on Monday to go home, just really sore and slow... although it is getting better day by day! We are so thankful that I got to the hospital in time! The dr said it would have burst on Sunday! Also, it is so nice to have family close by to help in the time of crisis! Michael and I are so blessed with a loving family!

Halloween Time

Thought I would post of a few pictures that we took during the month of October! Please have patience with me! Trying to learn all this new stuff, taking care of a 3 month old and ending up having surgery sure makes it hard! Not quite my month... but more pictures will come soon of Savannah in her Halloween costume!
