Kaileigh's 1st Halloween!

Today, Kaileigh celebrated her very first Halloween. She dressed as the cutest little lady bug in the world. First, we went to Miss Lola's house for a party. Nik dressed in my scrubs and I dressed in his flight suit; we were a big hit!! Later, we went trick-or-treating with Gabe and Madelyne, Kaileigh's very best friends. She didn't last long, but still had a nice time! We hope you enjoy the following slide show!

Nine Months!!

Hey there everyone!! Can you believe that Kaileigh is nine months old already?? She is really turning into such a little person! Yesterday she finally mastered clapping - and is now very amused by it! She also is crawling and standing up like a pro! She enjoys playing with the pots and pans, taking dvds off the shelf, and snuggling with Bella! At her nine-month "well-baby" appointment she weighed in at 16 pounds and 27 inches... still in the 25th percentile. She did have an ear infection a few weeks ago - and has recovered nicely from that! All in all, she is a very happy and healthy baby!

We wanted to thank everyone for dontating to our March of Dimes walk. However, the whole event turned out to be a disaster. Apparently, betweent the time I scheduled it in February and the actual walk, the date was changed from October 17 to September 26!! Needless to say, I was not very happy. I have to call the administrators and ask them if we can apply those donations to a future walk?, or what? I will keep you updated.

Recently, we joined our friends the Hatfields and Solanos at a corn maze/ fall festival. Kaileigh really enjoyed meeting the donkey, miniature horse (my kinda horse), goats, and billy goats. And believe it or not, it was a pretty cold day!! Halloween is right around the corner - we will have some good pictures for you then!

We will be coming home December 5-13th for an early Christmas celebration and Kaileigh's Christening. We can't wait to show you how much she has grown!

Enjoy the following slideshow!!

March of Dimes

Hey there family and friends! I am running late for work, so this is going to be a short post - and for that, I appologize. This Saturday, October 17th is the March of Dimes. Nik, Kaileigh and I will be walking in Pascagoula, MS at 8:30 in the morning. We are very excited to be a part of such an amazing organization!! I am writing to ask if anyone would like to donate?? We are not asking for much, $5.00 is plenty!! Please do not feel pressured to sponsor us, if you can't do it, we completely understand! However, if you do want to contribute, click on the March of Dimes link below and follow the prompts to "Donate to this team" for the Savva family. Thank you, we truly do appreciate it!

And in good form, here are some pictures of the REASON we want to walk: our miracle!!

Haha... i probably shouldn't post this... she is going to hate me some day...
But how could you not LOVE that tush?!?!
Up high!

We drive around the house in this racecar!
