Stitch had an appointment with her ophthalmologist yesterday.  For the first 9 months of her life she went to the ophthalmologist at least once a month.  She hasn't been for a whole 6 months.  I was really excited to get a picture of her sitting in the exam chair since she's big enough now to sit there by herself.  The office is really big.  It has 2 waiting rooms, the general waiting room and then the pediatric waiting room.  She did really good in the general waiting room but as soon as they started walking us back to the pediatric waiting room she went crazy and wouldn't let go of her death grip on my arm.  It broke my heart that she remembered and was so terrified.  Last time it took me, the doctor and 2 nurses to pin her down to dilate her eyes and to do her exam.  :(  Luckily this time they didn't dilate her eyes so it was more of a pleasant experience, although she still hated every second of it.  I've been so frustrated because she will not leave her glasses on.  Her doctor said she has learned to focus the best she can with her glasses off so when we put her glasses back on her it's like she's wearing two pairs of glasses.  She said Tessa's eyesight is bad enough that she should be "guarding her glasses with her life," so she gave us a prescription for eye drops that will make Tessa's eyes super blurry, to the point she can't see a thing with her glasses off so hopefully we'll get her out of the habit of taking them off.  She usually takes them off when she gets mad at someone.  She usually rips them off, it's her way of being defiant or rebelling, and then screams at the top of her lungs, so this may be a tough habit to break.  May the force be with me.  I wasn't able to get a picture of Tessa but I did get a pretty picture of Princess Savannah sleeping on the way home.  Ha ha!

I've been waiting for a picky eater because I've never met anyone as picky as me, and I figured I probably deserve it.  Ha!  I now introduce you to the worlds pickiest eater.  It's been such a struggle in the last month or so to find food she'll eat.  I can always count on oatmeal and fruit but those are the only things she consistently eats.  Everything else she spits out after 2 bites.  I made PB&J the other day and she was in heaven.  Today's been a long day, she's sick and teething so she hasn't been happy and I've done anything to try to keep her comfortable... she's had PB&J for lunch and dinner today.

Savannah went to her first gymnastics class.  Watching a bunch of 3 year olds in leotards is the cutest thing I've ever seen.  I love Savannah's bum in her leotard.
Anyone who knows Savannah knows she is obsessed with dinosaurs.  She spends the majority of her day acting like a dinosaur; whether she's eating, playing or watching a movie, she's still a dinosaur.  When gymnastics started Savannah couldn't see us, we were behind her behind the glass.  She was super nervous and was shy at first.  I loved observing her interact with other kids and adults.  For the first few minutes when she was nervous she pretended like she was a dinosaur. I love her awesome imagination and that her comfort zone is being a dinosaur.  She did so good!  Her favorite part was walking sideways on the balance beam.

Since Savannah was a little baby she's slept with her blanket wrapped around her head. Not just loosely, but dangerously wrapped around her head. I go into her room several times a night to take it off. The top picture is how I've found Tessa the last few nights and the bottom picture is Savannah every night.  Is this how all children sleep? Silly girls.
