Savannah is 5!

I can't believe that Savannah is 5 today! It does not seem like it has been that long, although at the same time, I really can't remember what it was like not having her in our home! I guess 5 just seems like a big step since it means that she will be starting kindergarten in a few months, and I'm not sure I'm ready for that. Savannah has always been such a sweet little girl and as she gets older, her thoughtfulness just increases. Kassie took her on a date for her birthday and they went for ice cream and then Kassie was going to take her to the mall and Savannah told her that she thought Paris would want to go to the mall too and so they came home and picked her up. I think Savannah and Paris are both going to have a hard time being separated when Savannah starts school...they truly are best buddies and do everything together!

Here are some things about Savannah at age 5:

1. She loves to color and draw...we have hundreds of pages of artwork and all of it is really good!
2. Her current favorite princesses are Ariel and Sleeping Beauty.
3. Her favorite color is pink.
4. Her favorite food is macaroni and cheese.
5. She loves to ride her bike.
6. She plays with her Polly Pocket princesses for hours every day.
7. She LOVES Madison and talks to her constantly when she is awake!
8. She is learning how to read and can read lots of books these days!
9. Savannah is excited about starting kindergarten in the fall.
10. She loves to swim!
11. She likes to watch Strawberry Shortcake and princess movies.
12. She is so good at sounding out words and writing them...we love seeing all of her lists and letters that she writes all by herself! And we can usually read them without any help...yep, she's pretty smart!
13. She is 41 inches tall and weighs 39 pounds.

For her birthday she got a new dollhouse and has already spent hours playing with it. We figured that with 3 little girls, it was a good investment. We tried to go swimming, but only had about 10 minutes to swim before the thunder and lightning started so we went home and had macaroni and cheese (at Savannah's request)! We love Savannah so much and are so glad to have her in our family.
