In a nutshell

I'm not really sure where this past few weeks have gone so I'm just going to wrap it up...

March 12
Baby Shower for the sweetest Emily on the planet! I love her and her baby so much.  I can't wait to meet Baby Y!  She did a post on her blog, so I'll let her do the talking {just know the feelings are ditto!}
March 18-20
We celebrated this Q-te in white getting married on April 16! Another trip to SSI?  Don't mind if I do!
I could not say enough about Laura.  She is by far one of the most incredible people I've ever met.  I cannot wait to be a part of her wedding!

The same weekend, Jason took Georgie to Sumter to visit her cousin Shep!  Yes, he is 11 1/2 months older than her...

March 22
Three days before Georgia hits the 11 month mark!
The weather got so nice that we've been trying to be outside as much as possible lately.
I wish I had this in video.  G was dancing back and forth the whole time.  She loves being on Da-da's shoulders!

And, she's way to busy for mom's kisses...

March 25
We { I } celebrated Bird & Branch being 6 months & Georgie being 11 months!!!!  with a fun trip to Ikea!

March 27
Then the sick baby junk set in... and let me just say, I wouldn't wish a sick baby on my WORST enemy (... if I have any).  Ok, and I'm not bragging, I promise, but Georgia is such a good sleeper.  When we put her down around 8ish she doesn't wake up until about 7.  That's every night.  So when she started waking up at night whining, we knew something wasn't right.  Anyway, after 3 sleepless nights and a fever that spiked to 103.1, we took G to the ER to get checked out at 1am.  We got home at 6 am with three negative results for pneumonia, UTI, and the flu.  But, as thankful as we still doesn't help us figure out why in the world she had a fever that high.   

Monday was no better, except the fever never got that high again, but Jason and I still weren't satisfied.  Thankfully, we're super annoying first time parents that insisted on calling the doctor again to let them know something still wasn't right and we needed to come see them, AGAIN!  Well we took her back yesterday, they did tests on her for strep, mono, etc. they found out that her white blood cell count was too high so we took her back for an antibiotic shot. she slept much better last night and woke up without a fever now! so yay!
Prayers are always welcomed in this household!

So, yeah, that's our life the past few weeks!  I really am going to try to get better about not waiting 2 weeks between posts... "try" being the key word.

Product Thursday

I've decided that us lady's need to help each other out.  Men have tons of website to read about electronics, guns, fishing equipment, bikes, etc., etc., etc.
But I feel like women are different.  We want a first hand opinion on what our firend's, cousin's, sister's thought about a product.  Not to mention if we can learn from someone elses mistake, how great is that!
Ok, all that to say every now and then i might start posting a product that i LOVE or hate, just in case I might be helping someone out!
First up, the dreaded sippy cup!
I've been through 3.  Playtex was one, and I can't remember the other two off the top of my head, but they're in the garbage.  That's right, I didn't even save them for back ups.
Georgia has used Dr. Brown's bottles since the day she was born and we've had great success.  Some mom's don't like them because of "all the parts" but we loved them!  The parts really weren't an issue if that's all you ever know.  So when I read that Dr. Brown's also made sippy cups....SWOON!
I have seriously loved this thing.  NO leaks, NO spills, NO breaking.  I never thought I could love a sippy cup this much, but I do!
Hope this really helps somebody!
Oh and happy St. Patty's Day!

Mommy Time

Two weekends ago I had a fun little Trunk Show with two of the best girls I know!  We had an absolute blast and I can't wait to do another one.  But I had two little guest travel with me...
How sweet are these two?!
 Then mommy's little lady had to help her shop on King Street (in her skinny jeans, non the less).
Love them!

16 Days?

Has it really been that long since I have blogged on our family page? Good grief...
If you ever want to keep up with what I am doing you can always visit Bird & Branch Redesign (which by the way, if you follow me on this blog, you should really click over and follow me on my other blog!)
But I just wanted to do a little update!

Sweet Georgie has 8 teeth now...yes E.I.G.H.T!

She had her first tasting of vanilla ice cream this past weekend and it was a HUGE hit!

We found out she isn't allergic to milk when she accidentally chugged a juice cup of whole milk from another little boy (another 'yay' that she likes milk),

Grass in the toes is just as fun as sand (which makes her mom a happy lady),

And outside is her favorite place to be!

The curls are becoming ferocious,

And she is really starting to talk up a storm!

10 months

Ok, I will be posting a better 10 month post, but I had to let it be known!  Our little one is only 2 months away from being O-N-E!!!!!!!!!!!  (holy-moly, i need to breathe)  One word, three times:
progress, progress, progress
Georgia now...
...has 6 teeth! four on top and two on bottom with two more on the bottom working their way up
...crawls!  But the thing is that she only crawls when she wants some where to pull up.  She can sure motor, but she just wants to pull up and walk.
...talks up a storm
...laughs like crazy
...loves being chase around the coffee table (video to come on that one)
...and you can tell she's really starting to understand what we say to her.

I just love her!
She's sick right now and it makes for two sad parents, but she's a trooper!
