Fantastic Firsts!

This week held a lot of FIRSTS!! This was our first trip to the zoo, the first time I caught her REAL smile on the camera, Savannah's first out-of-town trip (Hello, JENA!), and the first time she took a bottle!! She is getting to be such a BIG GIRL! :o)
CHEEEEESE!! Her first big, real, wonderful,
heart-melting smile that has been captured on the camera!!

I love this gorgeous baby!
And no, Jennifer, I did not put lip gloss on her!!
That's just her natural pink shimmer. :o)

My little monkey getting ready for ZOO DAY!!!!!!!!!

This was her reaction when I told her Sadie and Rylie were going to the zoo with us!

Aunt Jen clapping for HER little monkeys!

Poor Sadie got jipped (sp?)..... Stinking Rylie called shotgun.

Sadie....wishing she had her own stoller like Savannah....
Rylie....wishing she had more birthday cake to eat....
Savannah....wishing she was home in the air-conditioned house.....

Savannah's FIRST bottle and she took it like a CHAMP!
She's still a breastfed baby, but we wanted to make sure she could take a bottle for those days when Mommy will be out shopping...... :o)

Daddy's first time to feed the baby...it was PRECIOUS!

Savannah's first trip to JENA!
She and Grandmonty snuggled for hours. :o)

After bath time....
I had to take a picture of those HUGE eyes!

All snuggled up like a bug in rug....
I'd snuggle up with this bug ANY day!

Sadie and Rylie's First Birthday!!

I know these pictures are slightly out of order, but Jen hollers at me if I don't update the blog often enough, so I decided to stay up late and post these pictures! :o) Sadie and Rylie had their very first birthday party and they could NOT have been cuter!! They had such a wonderful time and it was clear to see that they will want CAKE for every meal instead of gross peas and carrots! Savannah was simply the best baby in the whole world....just ask her Nana!! She slept most of the time, but I have a feeling that this time NEXT year, she'll be helping Sadie smear icing all over Rylie and running away with all the presents.....
Savannah also went out to a public restaurant for her very first time! It was sooo much fun and I was SOOOO proud of how well-behaved she was.....yeah, yeah, she was asleep the whole time, but STILL....she was VERY well-behaved!! :o)
Savannah in the car on the way to Texas Roadhouse....
I would LOVE to know what she was thinking!! HA!
I LOVE this picture!
Can you tell how proud Papa T and Nana are of this sweet baby??

She slept the entire time!

Thanks, Mrs. Dixie, for the PRECIOUS outfit! She looked like a doll baby!
This is us getting ready to go to the Sharbono's for Father's Day!
I think we are ready for the Kentucky Derby, Dad. :o)
Haha!! I love my goofy family!


Savannah snuggling with Carson.....

Sadie and Savannah's FIRST HUG!!
You can tell they already love each other.
Watch out, Rylie.

In deep prayer and meditation....Hey, Grammie!
This looks just like you when YOU are in deep prayer and meditation! HA!


Sadie and Rylie in their very first CAR!
Does it get any cuter than this????


Jen and Hez setting up for the birthday party....


Sharbono-Brinker-Poole........love my sisters.

Savannah in her PARTY dress...
TOTALLY a princess, already...

Please notice how all the labels face outward...
and there are the same amount of each...
and the colors are alternating...
I am SO proud.

Sadie and Rylie had their own personal birthday cake to enjoy....
and ENJOY THEY DID!
My birthday presents for the girls!! I LOVED THEM!

Opening their presents...

One EXHAUSTED birthday girl :o)
Loving on her daddy...

Look how high she can hold her head up!!

Daddy telling her she was not allowed to date until her 80th birthday.

HAHAHAHA!! Savannah's face says it all.


Playing with our cousins!! Oh, how we love them!

We've Got A Nine-Pounder, Folks!

June 10, 2009 was our official one month birthday. We went to the pediatrician for Savannah's check-up...SHE WEIGHED NINE POUNDS! Pop says we should change her name to Porky... She's now 21.5 inches and we sometimes catch a smile or two! :o) She's growing up fast!!
Wade started working at Rapides ICU on Monday and is loving it so far! He is taking the NCLEX next Thursday, so please be praying that he does well! Otherwise, it's going to be a LONGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG summer. Love yall!
Poppa T got Savannah her first guitar outfit!
She's gonna be a ROCK STAR like her Poppa T!

Uncle Kurt and Aunt Mandy came to visit! We can't wait until Carson gets here!!
Savannah is already chunking the deuce to Carson!

She'll be walking any day now... :o)

Being a brave girl for our one month doctor's appointment!

We're not so brave anymore...

The pediatrician checking Savannah's heartbeat. It's perfect! Thank you, Jesus!

We grew ONE whole inch!

Yay! Savannah made all A's on her test!
Already taking after her momma...okay, okay, and her daddy too. :o)

So Jen went to the appointment with me and left Sadie and Rylie with Aunt Magic.
So much for all the magic...
This is what we found. Haha

This is what you get for free labor with Heather. We better start paying!!

Home Sweet Home...with daddy!!

Daddy was so proud of his nine-pounder!!

Does she look like daddy or mommy? What do you think?
Depending on who you talk to, it's different every time...

All tuckered out from her big day!

Happy One-Month!!

Yayyy!! Savannah was 4 weeks old on Sunday and to celebrate, Wade and I took Savannah out to an old LSU walking trail and had a family stroll! It was sooo nice to get out of the house and since Savannah LOVES to be outside, we had a WONDERFUL time....until a friendly man who possibly escaped from prison sat down and began making bird calls at the passing cars. At that point, we packed up and headed home. It was DELIGHTFUL.... :o)

I love her face in this picture...
she probably can't even see anything past her car seat,
but at least she pretends that she can!

Our sleepy baby getting used to the weird bird-call man...

SOOO happy to be out and about!
Oh, and I was Princess Pocahontas for her birthday.

Sweet daddy strolling with the baby!



Sleeping Beauty.
She doesn't look like it here, but she really DID love her shades!

Yeah, we are still wondering about her too, Savannah....
Savannah LOVES her Minnie Mouse and plays with her at EVERY diaper changing!
Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Who is the finest baby of all?
S-A-V-A-N-N-A-H!!
(Jennifer and Heather, don't make fun!)


Savannah!! Did you steal Pops' belly?!?!
ha, Just kidding, Dad!!

I have tons more to post, but Savannah is hollering....that's my cue!
But I PROMISE to post them soon, Poppa T! :o)
