school is now in session

School is now in session and it reminds me of when I used to go back-to-school shopping. Oh how I loved opening up that new package of pens on the first day! I still love getting new school/office supplies. Check out these cool supplies here.

it's my party...

...and I'll cry if I want to!

Georgia had her one month check up today. She weighed in at 9lbs 7oz and was 22 inches long. I think we have a tall one on our hands! She had to have a shot today. Georgia cried, mommy cried and daddy laughed at mommy. All is well now though.

Have a happy Thursday!

happy 1 month!

We can't believe that Georgia is one month old today! WOW! We are just so in love with our little one. We love that sweet face and can't get enough of it. Georgia goes to the doctor in a couple days for her one month check up so I'll have to report back with her weight and length.

What Georgia is up to these days:
-She loves tummy time/play time after her mid-morning feeding. She is happiest then.
- She loves when mommy walks around the house dancing/swaying with her. Mommy loves it too.
-She loves the sound of the hair dryer and typically will fall asleep when she hears it.
-She loves when daddy sings to her before bedtime.
- She is still working on the whole sleep during the night thing, but she definitely has had a few good nights where mommy and daddy get at least 3 or 4 hours of consecutive sleep!
- She loves strolling and car rides:)
- She is becoming less fussy during what I've been told is the 'witching hour (6-9)'. Mommy and daddy have had many conversations in the car during these hours while driving around to calm Georgia down. We are so proud of her though because each day is better and better.
- She is starting to smile and it melts our hearts.

We love you Georgia and can't wait to see what this next month has in store for us!

we couldn't have done it without you...

Time is just flying by. I can't believe Georgia will be a month old this weekend. SLOW down please! Parenthood is truly one of the hardest jobs I think, but definitely the most rewarding. I can't imagine our life without Georgia now. Paul and I have learned so much over these past four weeks. Here are just a few items that we couldn't have made it without.

The itzbeen is awesome. When you are so tired and your brain can't remember anything it's a great tool. All I have to do is push a button when I feed Georgia and change her diapers to keep up with the time in between.

We bought an ipod for Georgia's room and we have used it so much. It's loaded with lots of lullabies for our sweet pea. She seems to like the music or at least I do when I'm rocking her to sleep.

The Baby Boo Cradle Me blanket has been wonderful. It's basically a swaddle blanket with foam backing to support and protect the baby. I really like to hold Georgia in it when walking around the house. I'll also lay it beside me on the couch and she sleeps so soundly in it.

We use the moses basket every night. Love it so much!

And finally, thank you Eight O'clock Coffee. Paul and I couldn't have done it without you:)

Is there anything that you just couldn't have made it without those first few weeks? I'd love to know!

Happy weekend to you!

splish splash

We gave Georgia her first sponge bath outside on the deck. We thought the warmer temps would keep her warm and happy. She seemed to enjoy it after her hair was wet. And boy did she have some fluffy hair after her bath! Not too sure where that comes from. Happy Thursday!

the past two weeks

The past two weeks have been filled with doctor visits, visits from friends and family, Ashley's birthday and our first stroll as a family. Here are just a few pictures. We have been overwhelmed by the support of our family and friends over the past two weeks. The meals, cards, visits and gifts are all very appreciated. We feel so blessed to have such an awesome support group.

Georgia did not like being weighed.

She loves her daddy.

Happy Birthday Ashley!

Georgia meets her great-grandparents! Three generations of parents and their children all on one couch!

First stroll in the neighborhood - she loves it!
