So next week we are going to the beach with the entire Rutter family. I am excited for many reasons however I am most excited because Danielle is going to take pictures of Savannah. I tried taking some of her today just to get a few and well lets just say this is not my specialty. Not even 1 came out right. Danielle will do much better I am 100% sure.

So Savannah is one week old. She is fitting in just fine. Valerie has changed a few diapers and she does a good job, she loves to hold her and give her kisses. Austin did help wipe her bottom today which I don't think he liked, he makes sure he tells me she is hungry when she cries that I need to feed her. He likes to hold her and makes sure everyone knows that she is his baby.
She is not a bad sleeper at this point either. She wakes up about every 4 hours at night and if she dosent I wake her up to eat.
I must say there is less crying this way, she loved being in the water. Is that any surprise??
Its amazing how much changes for babies. When Valerie and Austin were born you were not allowed to give them baths until the umbilical cord fell off. But now they say to go ahead and submerge them in water they find more problems regulating temp by giving them sponge baths that they prefer them to be completely in the water. Austin was of course there being a very helpful big brother.
