sweetest girls room

I'm sure you've already seen this image if you are in the blog world, but if not, you need to check out this room at Life in Grace. Edie, the brain behind Life In Grace, is currently blogging about the rebuilding of her home after it was destroyed in a fire last year. Her new home is just beautiful! I especially like her daughters' room.

happy 3 months

Happy 3 months Georgia! We have turned a complete 180 with Georgia’s colic! Praise Jesus! It did peak over the past month, but she is moving in the right direction. She has been like a completely different child over the past week and a half and we are so happy! I do believe getting a handle on the dairy allergy is what helped. She is not sleeping through the night yet, but is getting oh so close!

What Georgia has been up to:
Babbling/cooing up a storm these days
She has found her hands and loves to eat them
She enjoys looking at her Baby Einstein videos
She loves her swing! I don't know what we would have done without it
She rolled over for the first time last night - tummy to back!
She likes bath time, especially when daddy warms up her towel
At our last appointment Georgia was 11lbs so I bet she is a little over 12lbs now - we'll see next month

We can't believe you are already 3 months old! We love you!

everyday conversations

Just a normal conversation with Georgia!

Do you remember playing the game MASH when you were growing up? At the top of your paper you first write MASH. Then you write down the names of three boys you want to marry, how many kids you want to have, what you want to drive and where you want to live, etc... All of this is determined by the number of ticks or rings that the scribe has marked down when the player yells out stop! The last part of the game determines what you will live in - Mansion, Apartment, Shack or House! I used to love that game. I'd live in any of these!

ramblings on being back at work

WARNING - this post is full of ramblings!

This picture has nothing to do with the post, but I just love how peaceful 'G' looks when she sleeps.

Well, I survived my first few days back at work and Georgia did great too from what Grammy and Granny B told me. Yes, both of our mothers are watching Georgia and we feel so incredibly blessed to have this opportunity. It definitely made going back to work ten times easier than it would have been had I dropped her off with someone I didn't know. In the three days that I have been back at work I've realized several things. First off, my perspective on life, work, etc... has drastically changed. Things that used to seem SO important just don't seem that important anymore. Secondly, every minute of my day is now very precious. Every minute at work is precious because I want to make sure that I get everything accomplished so I can leave on time each day. More importantly, time is so precious at home. My time with Paul and Georgia is very limited now. I've always been pretty good at prioritizing and managing my time, but being a mom has made me even better at it. You are forced to be! Every moment I have with them is special. I try to set aside a few minutes for me even if that means waking up early while they are asleep. That seems to work best for me. Lastly, the radio seems so new to me. Seriously, I haven't listened to the radio in 3 months. When Georgia is in the car I either don't have the music on or it is so soft that I can't hear it. I'm sure this will change, but driving to and from work this week, I heard so many new songs. It felt like a treat! Love the new Maroon 5 song and I also found 'Pumped up Kicks' to be a catchy song, but clearly I'm out of touch. I thought this song was just about having fun running around in your 'kicks'. I never know the real words to songs. Oh me! I live in a bubble! By far, my favorite song that I heard this week was 'I Get to be the One' by JJ Heller. What a sweet song. Well, that's enough rambling for one afternoon. My sweet pea is getting ready to wake up from her nap so I'm going to sign off for now. Thanks for the prayers as I returned back to work. All went well!

Hope you are enjoying your weekend. Be sure to cheer on those Clemson Tigers tonight!

more fall fun

Fall is such a fun time isn't it? On Thursday, Ashley and I took the girls to get pumpkins and to take a few pictures of the cousins. The weather has just been perfect. It was a fun little outing. On Friday we headed to the mountains to see the leaves. Our fall is shaping up to be a busy one so this is the one chance we had to see the leaves and boy they were beautiful. Here are a few pictures from the pumpkin patch and our weekend.

I do want to warn you that there may be another little break in my posts. I go back to work full time on Wednesday :( so it may take me some time to get adjusted to my new schedule. I would appreciate your prayers as I am going to miss seeing my girl all day.

I hope you have a great week!

sleep sacks

I love these pretty sleep sacks from Auggie. Georgia sleeps so soundly in her sleep sack. I may have to snatch one of these super cute ones for her!

duck season

Duck hunting season kicked off at our house today. Well, technically it kicks off tomorrow morning, but this means that Paul is up at 2:30 a.m. and not for a feeding:)

Thanks everyone for the thoughts and kind words regarding Georgia and our most recent challenges. I know that many, many folks have had colicky babies as well as babies with allergies. It is very comforting to hear success stories!

Happy midweek!

our little pumpkin

We took our little pumpkin to her first pumpkin patch over the weekend! The weather was awesome too. I was thrilled to throw on my boots and scarf. Speaking of our little pumpkin, things have not been too easy around here lately, hence the non-blogging. Georgia has been very colicky and we think we have figured out why-FINALLY. After switching pediatricians we found out she has a dairy allergy. She doesn't seem to like formula so I'm going dairy free. This is going to be a challenge, but I'm willing to do anything at this point. Hopefully I'll be back in the swing of blogging regularly soon. Hope you enjoyed the fall weather!
