happy 5 months Georgia!

I seriously cannot believe Georgia is 5 months old today. I know I say this every time, but she is growing up so fast. She is so much fun - smiling and giggling. Now don't get me wrong, she still has some bad days, but the colic is gone. She still fights nap time and will definitely let you know when she needs something:) We have made a barricade with pillows and blankets in our living room. The girl just rolls and rolls and rolls. On several occasions I have had to quickly catch her from rolling up under the couch. What a delight Georgia is though. We love her more and more each day and are enjoying seeing her personality beginning to show. Happy 5 months sweet girl!

What Georgia has been up to:
She is rolling all around
She has tried rice cereal twice now and doesn't seem to like it - we'll keep trying
She grabs her feet
She has learned how to squeal and it is so cute
The giggles have picked up this month-I'll have to post one of the videos sometime
She tries to hold her own bottle
Her hair is growing back in and it looks like the color may be very close to mine
She was almost 14lbs at her last appointment so I bet she's approaching 15lbs. now
No teethies are showing, but I think she is teething - she is eating her hands and drooling

christmas-y things

We've been doing your typical Christmas-y things here: receiving Christmas cards, making ornaments, going to Christmas parades, singing Christmas songs, wrapping presents and seeing the lights. We've been busy, but are enjoying the season with our little one.

In case I don't get back on here before Christmas, I hope you and yours have a Merry Merry Christmas!

swimsuit season?

I don't even want to think about swimsuit season for me, but I already ordered one for Georgia. I couldn't help it. Gap was having their 30% off anything deal and I couldn't pass it up. I ordered the matching hat too. If only they had this one-shoulder one in my size:) They now have 35% off your purchase so you can save even more than I did. The sale ends Friday!

into the beautiful

Earlier today, Paul's PawPaw slipped into the beautiful heavens. I feel that as I get older, I am reminded just how short life is. This was Paul's last living grandparent and tonight I was just thinking about our grandparents and how some of them have never met. I picture them just sitting around in heaven talking about us and looking down upon us. I hope they are proud. One day we will see you again! We covet your prayers!
