Heidi, of course, loved everything about the process.

We are all so excited for all the fun Christmas activities to begin!

I hate doing posts without pictures, but sadly we remembered to bring everything to Thanksgiving except the camera. What a shame, because we had a wonderful time. Heidi kept saying funny things before we left like, "I'm so excited for Firstgiving I am just going to bump off the couch." Whatever that means. We were all so excited to go, and it was such a fun trip! Heidi couldn't have had more fun with her cousins and they were all so sweet to play with her all day long. In spite of Savanna not sleeping as well as she usually does, she was still pretty happy and had fun exploring a new place. The food was delicious, like always. I ate way too much, like always. I definitely felt the overeating and lack of exercise last week when I was on the treadmill this morning. Thanks again to Jeff's wonderful parents for hosting a delicious, relaxing, fun holiday for our family! Next year we'll remember to bring the camera...

A week later I am still in shock we have a one year old!
We had her one year shots and check up last week.
Length: 27 inches--below 5th percentile
Weight: 15 lbs. 12 oz.--below 5th percentile
Still our tiny, little petite girl!
Most people ask if she is 7 or 8 months and always seem shocked when they see her walking around.
We love having little girls that are full of personality!
*Has 4 teeth (2 on top, 2 on bottom) and has 2 more top ones that just barely broke through.
*Sleeps from about 8pm-6:30am. Takes about an hour nap at 9am and a 2-2.5 hr nap at 1pm.
*Made the transition to bottles to whole milk easily.
*Loves to eat, but definitely prefers to eat what we are eating.
*Has a major, major sweet tooth and can spot treats a mile away.
*Climbs up the stairs and is learning to go down, but can't quite go down on her own yet.
*Laughs every time she sneezes.
*When she is sitting, she loves to randomly throw herself back onto the floor and start kicking her legs.
*Loves to wave.
*Loves to growl.
*Says mama, dada, more (mo mo mo), bob (we think this is just a sound she makes but Heidi always says, "Who's Bob, Savanna? Is he your secret friend?)
*Loves animals and squeals and points like crazy when she sees them. When we ask her where the cows are she looks out the kitchen windows at the cow pasture.
*We still aren't sure if her hair will be brown, but I haven't given up hope.
*Her eyes are still really blue.
*Not one person has ever told me that she looks like me, and she doesn't. She is the spitting image of her daddy.
*Such a good natured little thing. Even with a bad ear infection, you would never know.
*My favorite thing is to get her out of her bed because she is always so happy. She kicks her legs and squeals and tries to hide her binky in her little hands.
*Really starting to enjoy books. She will bring me books and then put her little body in my lap. She loves when I point out bumblebees and pretend there is one buzzing around to get her. When she sees a picture of a bumblebee she starts giggling.
*Loves to put things inside of bottles, boxes, etc.
*Very independent and usually likes to play by herself, but she prefers if someone is in the room with her.
*If she is holding something she doesn't want anymore, she will grab our hand and stick the item in.
Savanna is so easy to love.
She makes us laugh and smile every day.
We seriously cannot imagine life without our little sunshine.
We are so lucky to have her in our family!

We had the best time celebrating Savanna's first birthday! She looked so cute in her tutu
and she had an absolute blast with all of the balloons.
I made her a butterfly cake out of cupcakes. It turned out pretty cute in spite of my cake making/decorating abilities. I made it the day before and I swear she knew what it was and was squealing and begging for it the whole day leading up to her big day.
We had such a fun party!! We had quite a few friends and neighbors come and help us celebrate.
The weather was nice and the kids were even able to play outside for awhile.
Savanna was, of course, an absolute dream at the party. She is such a social little thing and would crawl over to everyone and wave at them. While we were eating dinner she would wave at different people and give one of her signature cheesers. It is seriously impossible not to be smitten with her.
Savanna was spoiled rotten with gifts! She was excited about all of them and Heidi and her friend Kaiden had a blast helping her unwrap each one.
I think Savanna's favorite part of the evening was the cake.
She was literally shoving the cake in her mouth as fast as she could!
To say she loved it is a bit of an understatement.
She was even sweet enough to try and share some of it with our neighbor.
I am pretty sure she would live on sweets if I let her. She was such a mess when the cupcake fun ended, but it was so fun to watch her enjoy her first cake. After the cake we scrubbed her up and while we were all visiting, she practiced walking to everyone in the room. She loves to be the center of attention!
Grandpa and Grandma Hunziker couldn't make it, but as always, they found the perfect gift!
Both of the girls have had fun playing with this rocking giraffe.
Heidi has had a blast showing Savanna how all of her new stuff works.
Happy, happy Birthday to my blue eyed beauty!
I really can't believe she is already one.
I can't even describe the happiness she has brought to our family.
We love you, Savanna!
