Savannah has been so much fun since the day she was born! Her vocabulary is pretty much as good as mine now. She is constantly picking up and repeating new words and phrases.
"Alligator Scared": A thunder storm woke her up from a nap one day and when I went in to get her she was crying saying "alligator scared". She must have thought the thunder sounded like an alligator. Now whenever it rains she says "alligator scared". Sometimes she says it when she's just sad or scared and there's no thunder around. I love it.
"It's my do it": This we hear ALL THE TIME! She is in the stage where she wants to do everything on her own. She went and got her own pajamas and underwear the other night and got herself ready for bed. She pushed a chair up to the counter the other day, got a banana, peeled it herself, and went and sat down and ate it all while I was taking a shower the other morning. She thinks she can do it all!
"Be happy!": She tells us this a lot when we get hurt (usually after she's accidentally kicked us in the nose or something!). She also takes great care of her sister by bringing her toys, covering her with blankets, and kissing her head.
"Two mits": This is her stall tactic at bedtime. We say, "it's time for bed", and she puts up her two fingers and says, "two mits!" asking us to let her stay up for just two more minutes (which usually turns into 30!)
Our little Hailey is as sweet as ever. She has taken her time trying new things. She rolls around now, but really didn't start doing it regularly until she was about 6 months old (she did it a few times at 4 months and then not again for weeks). She's still not sitting up, but getting closer. Her favorite thing right now is her johnny jumper and her sister. She has gotten to an age where she thinks Savannah is funny.
This morning I was listening to her on the monitor when she was waking up and she started making elephant noises. She did this for quite a while before I finally went up to get her. She isn't making any consonant sounds yet, but is a quiet smiley little thing!
