you can see it if you look hard in the back left corner
The frog that Beam and Poppy got Austin for Christmas came today!! He is so excited, he just doesn't understand "grow". We gave the tadepole food and Austin got up set because he didn't grow in front of his eyes. This will be interesting. He is afraid to walk away from it, at quiet time he told me I had to watch it and make sure he didn't get away. He has also named it "jump", because frogs jump he says. I tried to take pictures of it which was pretty hard because it is see through.
Because of the recommendation of "no bumpers in the crib" we were not so sure of what to do. I found these individual bumper rails on line but talk about expensive!! for a pack of 24 it was $100 and I have 36 rails. Now don't get me wrong I think they are worth the money especially after I started to make my own. The ones on line have zippers and are reversible and it does take a lot of fabric. But I still didn't want to spend all of that money, So I came up with my own. I have about 3 rails left in the back but for the most part they are done and she has not gotten any limbs stuck yet which is preventing her from waking up banging her head trying to get loose.

Savannah Has really started talking in the last week but she usually does this deep voice that I call her "monster voice". Its really kinda funny when she starts and keeps going.
She also has another tooth right next to the first one that came in last weekend. You can see the white but it hasn't popped through yet.

For Christmas Beam and Poppy got Austin a child recliner. At first he didn't use it to much, but lately he is using it more these are some pictures of what he likes to do the most in his chair. He is also wearing the pjs that Aunt Mel got him...they are pretty big but likes them because they have slippers as he calls them.
At Savannah's 4 month check up the doctor said offer her a cup of about 1 oz of juice. We don't do this every time she eats but at least once a day. She has grown to love her cup!! So much so that we can not bring it out until she has finished her vegetables or cereal because she just wants her cup. I am pretty impressed that she can for the most part anyway hold her own cup, we have to fix it at times but she does most of it on her own.

So after I was done work on the Sunday after Christmas we headed down to Downingtown to spend time with Valerie and the rest of the family.
The first half was spent with Beam and Poppy. We all had a good time, but I think Austin had the best time. Benjamin and Maddie came over to play several times. When we were on our way down he kept saying "we will see if Benjamin is there, we will see". Beam and Poppy got Austin a "Grow a frog" The entire time Austin thought it was a game and everyday kept asking everyone to play grow a frog. We are sending away for the frog tomorrow, he should have fun with it.
Valerie got to open her gifts at Beam and Poppy's house I think she really liked all her gifts, she spent a lot of the time watching her Charmed box sets.
Beam watched the kids so Rob and I could go out to dinner and Savannah decided she wanted to stay up and have Beam walk with her instead of going to bed.
Next it was off to Nanny and Poppy's. Everyone had a good time here as well. Austin and Valerie played with Olivia. Olivia is starting to feel comfortable with Savannah and is even playing with her. The best part is Uncle Rob use to have her trained to say Uncle Rob is my favorite, but guess what?? When he asked her this time, I really think she wanted to say Aunt Amy is my favorite. While she never answered him she kept looking at me and smiling. I can at least hope.
Rob and I went out for New Years while the kids stayed with Nanny and Poppy. All of the kids even Savannah stayed up to see the ball drop. Which I guess never really happened. Austin seemed pretty upset about this. But who went to bed at 8:00?? I think we know without saying.
Valerie got an mp3 player from Nanny and Poppy and spent the rest of the time listening to music. She really is becoming a pre-teenager.
Christmas this year was a little different in our house because Valerie was not there. We did get to spend the week with her though, which turned out to be really nice. But for some reason we didn't take any pictures.
On Christmas eve daddy and Austin tracked Santa and the raindeer, when Austin was in bed he called daddy and and told us he saw Santa's lights. Austin woke up about 815 and was excited when he came into the living room. Santa put his dragon castle in the back of the pile and after each present Austin was pretty sad and said "he didn't bring me my dragon castle". When He had only 2 presents left, he finally found the dragon castle and was pretty excited. If he opened up clothes he would just put the box a side. While he was opening a packaged he would repeatedly say what is it what is it!
Savannah never opened her presents until after her 1st nap of the day. She liked the wraping paper more than the presents.
Granny, Granpy, Aunt Mel, Uncle Bubba, Weezy all came for dinner while Pap and Ama came a little later. It was a very nice day...Thank you everyone.
