Today we had the privilege of attending the 8th annual Hope Floats event put on by KinderMourn. KinderMourn is an organization that supports grieving parents in Charlotte, NC. The annual event Hope Floats allows folks to adopt one or several rubber ducks in memory of a loved one. We were there supporting my sister, brother-in-law and niece remembering sweet baby Bizzell that went to heaven about a year ago. 18,000 rubber ducks were adopted and raced down the rapids at the U.S. National Whitewater Center. What a neat sight it was to see them all at once.
We have hope and confidence that we will see baby Bizzell again one day. We can't wait to see you soon!
The past month has been an active one. I think I said this last month, but I am just loving this stage. Georgia is full of personality and is crawling all over the place. I have made a pallet on our rug so she doesn't get hurt if she falls. She rarely stays on that rug though because she loves exploring. The air vent is her favorite place to visit! She has lots of new facial expressions that keep us laughing too.
What Georgia has been up to:
- She says mama, baba, gaga
- She is starting to wave her little hand and it is so cute
- She still only has two teethies
- Sleep is improving, but was interrupted by an ear infection this past month. I'm sure my bragging about her sleeping through the night a couple nights in a row jixed it too:)
- She weighs right at 18lbs and is 28 inches long
- She loves her puffs
- We've lowered the crib and I have caught her several times trying to pull herself up
There's so much to keep up with these days regarding social media. It is exhausting honestly. I'm not sure if you've seen the 'donut - social media explanation', but I saw it sitting on a printer the other day and thought it was humorous and dead-on with the explanations (not sure who the credit goes to). I apologize for the small photo. Just click on it to enlarge. Enjoy!
Our Easter weekend was a blast. We kicked the weekend off 80's style for a friend's 30th birthday party. Sadly, we owned every piece of clothing we wore. The party was great fun!
Saturday we attended an Easter egg hunt in the most beautiful backyard I've ever seen. I had complete yard envy. It was so much fun to see all the kids running around grabbing the eggs and just having a ball. After the egg hunt, we walked downtown Belmont to grab some dinner alfresco. The weather was perfect. All I have to say is thank goodness for puffs! Georgia wouldn't have made it through our dinner without them.
On Sunday, after church, we enjoyed lunch with our families. It was a great weekend indeed!
I hope you have lots of fun Easter weekend plans ahead - I know we do. Let's not lose sight of the meaning of this weekend though.
It's about a man named Jesus that died to save you and me and HE OVERCAME death. I'm reminded daily when I look at Georgia that we serve a risen Lord that still performs miracles and loves us oh so much!
