The other day Cole and Savannah laid on the flood together and read a Dr. Seuss book. She looked at each picture while he read. He had her full attention. Even me and the flashing camera didn't distract her. It was so sweet that I thought I'd share my photos.

Ok, so we have been working more on Savannah's tummy time and I think we are finally seeing some improvement! Nothing remarkable, but we'll take what we can get. She is getting her head off the floor a bit more and looking around a little. She's been moving her body more too and kinda twisting her body while she's on her back- pretty good for her! Here's some photos of our improvement.

So, it's been over a week since I've posted. Cole had a birthday- his 26th! We didn't do much to celebrate yet. We just spent the morning enjoying our girl before he went to work. Hopefully we'll get to celebrate more this weekend. I was sick for a few days and Cole let me stay in bed most of the day. He had no problem taking care of Savannah without me (except feedings of course!). But that shouldn't surprise anyone. He's a great daddy (have I mentioned that before?). I could hear the two of them talking/cooing and laughing from the bed. He even gave her a bath by himself which was so sweet to listen to. One of my favorite sick days ever! Cole cleaned up the house and cooked for us and everything. Savannah and I are very blessed to have him! Other than that it's been a typical wonderful week with the sweetest baby ever, but here are some extra photos for those of you who check the blog daily.
I love these next two photos. While we were in Lexington, I went to get Savannah out of her pack-n-play after her nap and she was trying to get her hand out of her swaddle. She's gotten quite good at getting her arm out and once she started getting both arms out and wearing her swaddle like a towel wrapped around her after a shower, I decided it was time to stop swaddling. But this photo seems to have captured that "What? I'm not trying to escape?" look.And then she thought it was so funny! She's so clever!

It was so fun having all three cousins together for the first time! We were able to get them fed and happy long enough to get some great photos. Here's how they turned out:
Addie is so sweet kissing "BabyYapes" and "Bana's" feet.

It was such a gift to get to see Savannah with her grandmother this weekend! They had lots of opportunities to spend time together. After her bath, Savannah got spoiled with her first hair drying!

We finally got to meet baby Yeats this weekend! He is such a cutie and Valerie is doing so well being the mommy of TWO little ones! He is now three weeks old and has the prettiest complexion! He looks just like his daddy and is already putting Savannah to shame with him night time sleep schedule! We also got to spend some more time with Addie, Savannah's biggest cousin. She is absolutely adorable! Beautiful with so much personality! I wish I had a video of her dancing at Jonathan and Whitney's wedding this weekend (which was gorgeous, by the way). She was the first one on the dance floor and drew quite a crowd! She loves to dance as much as her Uncle Cole! And she was so sweet with Savannah! She let Savannah take a nap in her crib and after she woke up, we put Addie in the crib with her. She was so gentle and gave her kisses on her forehead and when she started to cry a little, Addie put her pacie in her mouth for her. So sweet!!

We have had so much fun watching the UPS horse do so well this year! We were all ready to see Big Brown win the Triple Crown on Saturday. Cole brought home UPS buttons for us all to wear and we all got dressed in brown. We couldn't believe how the race ended! We kept waiting for him to make his move and fly past everyone but it never happened. For those of you who didnt keep up the race for the triple crown, Big Brown won two of the three races and was trying to win the third race on Saturday. Sadly, Big Brown finished in last place, the only Triple Crown hopful to ever finish in last place. Even though the race was a disappointment, watching Savannah and her daddy was adorable! They looked so cute in their matching brown and Savannah watched her daddy the whole race. She is so crazy about him! PRECIOUS!

I have a few more pictures I want to share. All kind of random, but thought some of you may want to see them (especially you grandparents!)

Ok, I'm going to copy Joelle and make a top ten list of the things I love about my baby. It'll be hard to narrow it down and I'm sure it will change each day, but here goes...

I love giving Savannah her bath. She really loves the water and seems so relaxed in the tub. Tonight I gave her a bath and she looked so cute and smiley I couldn't help but take pictures. I thought I'd share just a few (of the dozens I took) with you all.

I am loving this age! Savannah just keeps getting better and better! What a precious gift she is! Every day she seems more smiley and has even started laughing every once in a while. I look forward to hearing that sound more and more! I could just stare at her all day. Cole is still the best at getting her to smile. She grins just hearing his voice and the two of them can carry on conversations just by cooing (or "hoo"ing). It's adorable. I had to share some pictures of the smile that lights up our world every day!
