33 hours and 4 years

October 5th, 2002
My sweet little Savannah was born.
It took us 2 days to name her because I HAD to wait to meet her to give her a name.
She popped out with red hair and I couldn't believe it.
Her name fits her perfectly.
She is the epitome of a redhead.
After 33 hours of labor and a terrible spinal headache from the epidural one of the first things I said was "I would do that 1000 times just to have her."
I'm so proud of the lovely little girl she has become.
She rode her first roller coaster ride yesterday at Disneyland and belly laughed through the whole thing. I'll never forget that.
I love her more than life itself.

Happy birthday Savannah!!! She really is the best little girl I know.

Which ride was the maiden voyage for Red?

Gingers Mom said...

We rode Thunder Mountain first. SO FUN.
Then we braved Splash Mountain. Eeek! She rode in the front. I was so scared. I told Dan, over and over "hold onto her as if life depends on it!!"

Her face in the picture at the big drop looked TERRIFIED. I felt bad. But she said, "let's do it again!!"

What a doll!
Thunder Mountain and The Matterhorn were Evan's favourites. We didn't get to Splash Mountain because of the line ups. ~sigh~ We'd love to go back and visit some time soon...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY SWEET SAVANNAH!

She is so adorable. All of your kids are. How DO you do it???

Happy birthday, kid!

Happy Birthday Savannah!! She is a beautiful little girl. Are you sure she's four, not fourteen?! I bet she is a great big sister to her little brothers too. If she is anything like Virginia, she loves having little people to boss around! What a brave girl to go on Thunder Mountain and Splash Mountain! Hope she had a great day.

I can not believe how big she has gotten. No long a baby but a little girl. I my goodness. I have presents....I'll be sending them soon. Just been late. That beach picure just shocked me at how big she has gotten.

She is a cutie! Our daughter will turn 4 next month and is about the same age. Only we live in Savannah and her name is Katie. (Katherine) An Irish name but we didn't get the red hair and freckles we were expecting.

Happy Birthday to Savannah! She is beautiful. I came here on Dr. John's marathon instructions, and had to really hang out for awhile and appreciate the familial pride and closeness...yer girl is gorgeous, as is the whole family. the bouncy ball photo is my favorite. Little miss S. looks like a sprite, with hair flowing like that...magical.

Cuppojoe said...

Yeah, daughters are pretty cool, aren't they? I didn't go through labor to get mine, but she means the world to me just the same!
