Smurfin' Around







Georgia went to the movies for the first time ever yesterday!!! Most kiddos have probably been to the movies before 3 and 1/2 but with my hyper active child I was a little aprehensive until now. She did GREAT!!! We polished our nails smurf blue for the event!!! The movie was great and we had so much fun! It was unanimous we really want a smurf for a pet. I want Clumsy she wants Smurfette, Jonathon doesn't care :-) It is so amazing and fun when something we all loved as children our children get a chance to experience. Every Saturday morning I would watch the Smurfs at my Granny's house while eating fudge rounds and donut sticks. There were no DVR's, no re-runs,if you missed it you missed it until next week. Too bad, so sad. It was something I always looked forward to. The Smurfs and the Cosby's on Thursday evenings lol. My little G reminds me a bit of Olivia lol, maybe one day we can share that too. For now, we await the Smurfs to filtrate into all our local Targets or Wal Marts so we can get lots of Smurf stuff...for Georgia of course :-)

My Girl




Georgia-"Mama, that is a very fashionable hat"
Me- "Thanks sweet pea"
Georgia-"You're so pretty mama."
Me-"Georgia, you are the most beautiful girl in the whole world."
BIG HUGS and then...
SWOON......I LOVE THIS LITTLE GIRL. It is the little moments that transpire in less than a minute that mean the most. I hope her heart is always this loving. She will have so much to give to this big ole world one day. I can just feel it :-)

New Digs







Auntie Suna and Stephen got all moved in their new home a couple of weeks ago and we haven't had the pleasure of visiting yet...until this weekend. Georgia was in awe of the whole house, but her favorites were the bathtub that sits down in the floor, the sauna, the stairs, and of course the tree house. A REAL treehouse and Suna told her it was all hers. I mean, what 3 year old doesn't want part ownership in a tree house? I swear my little babies chest puffed up and her eyes were twinkling she was so happy. Suna loves her to pieces and I am fairly certain the feeling is mutual. Much love to the Vickers. MWAH!

Christmas in July



The obsession with Christmas continues. She loves to wear her Santa hat...even in 100degree weather, she tells me she misses Frisbee at least weekly (that is her Elf on a Shelf), and her favorite game on the Ipad is a Christmas tree game. Just last night we read How The Grinch Stole Christmas for her bedtimes(what we affectionately call her bedtime stories) and night before last it was Olivia Claus. I would say that Christmas year round could take the fun out of the real deal but I don't think that's even possible :-) She definitely gets it honest. Did I mention we got a new Ipad? OMG. Jonathon surprised us the week after Georgia's surgery and it is my favorite gift ever (besides Georgia). She loves loves loves it and there are so many games and apps that are just perfect for her. I guess it was really kind of Christmas in July afterall :-)

Fun and Fellowship












We spent the 4th of July with Ashley, Stacy and their two sweet kiddos, Greyson and Grier. They just live a couple streets over so we all walked over to the country club and watched their fireworks then came back for a fireworks show of our own :-) We ended up with every kid in the neighborhood at our house. It was SO much fun. I think I had a big stupid grin on my face all night long. I felt like we were the "cool kids" lol. Only we were the grown-ups... A special thank you to G's Aunt Natalie for her cute outfit.:-) Happy Monday, too bad this week isn't a short holiday weekend!

10 Days








Wow! Where has the summer gone? Is it really almost August?! We have been so busy and it seems like its go go go all the time in our house. On July 7 Georgia had her tonsils and adenoids out and tubes put in her ears. She did a wonderful job and she was so brave! She kept asking everyone after the surgery to look and see if they were still there :-) Upon our initial visit with the ENT they told us to expect her to be down two weeks. I laughed out loud (in my head) thinking, yeah right, this is a routine deal, two or three days tops. Well, as luck wouldn't have it, I was wrong. This poor thing was down and out for ten, yes TEN days. She isn't particularly a fan of Popsicles or anything mushy so getting her to eat was also a challenge. We were able to get her to drink and that was a saving grace. My mom came and stayed the entire week following the surgery so Jonathon and I could go back to work and that was a God send. Im pretty sure she has more patience than I do bc the whole process of medicine and food was just awful. Ugh. I am glad this is not something we have to do again. Georgia really was a trooper and hardly cried she was just so pitiful. Seeing my spunky vivacious girl down and out is not something I ever want to see again.
On day ten and as luck would have it, the day before Mom went home, she felt better. ALL BETTER. She went from virtually not eating to eating anything she could get her little sweet hands on. We had Cantina Laredo on the way to the airport and of course she tore up a quesedilla and some cheese dip :-) Obviously now it has been a little over two weeks and she is back to her old self with the exception of a really high pitched squeaky voice that sounds like she sucked all the helium out of a balloon. The doctor said it was temporary but I dont know....It did not improve her singing voice ;-)
For the first time in her short 3.5 years my baby is sleeping and resting. For those of you who don't know, she snored like a grown man. FOR REELZ. I have found myself walking in the room while she is sleeping and putting my hand on her chest just to see if she is breathing. She is and she is sleeping soundly. Now, Zane has taken up snoring...or maybe he snored all along and we just couldn't hear him for Georgia lol. Either way, I am so glad it helped! The doctor said her airways had 60 percent blockage. Poor kid.
I would like to say a belated thank you to every single one of my friends and family who were here for us/her during this procedure. I can't imagine what it would be like if it were something more serious lol because seriously you guys, this little girl is BLESSED!!! Thank you so much to everyone who visited the hospital and helped out along the way, for the stuffed animals, the balloons, the books, the flowers, the activities, the movies, the snow cone maker (no kidding), the new pajamas, the food care packages, the cards she got in the mail, the phone calls, the texts and the love, hugs and kisses. You guys are amazing and I was truly humbled by the outpouring of love over some tonsils!
Today we are going to church for the first time in four weeks and man we have missed it! I am excited! Also, I plan on trying to catch up on this blog, while simultaneously doing housework...because if nothing else I am a multi-tasker. Have a wonderful Sunday! XOXO

American Babies :-)







Happy ALMOST 4th! We have a big bag full of fireworks a.k.a. sprinklers and fountains thanks to Jonathon and we are patiently awaiting dark. We will walk over to Centennial tonight and watch the show and then come home and do our own little show for G :-) Yay! I think the 4th comes in second to Christmas for my favorite holiday. You gotta love the sparkle and you gotta love these two pretty fairies. They are too pretty for their own good.

America's Sweetheart











My American baby. So pretty. She wore this dress last July 4th as well. Little stinker hasn't grown much but oh how she has changed! Look at those long legs on the couch! Her Aunt Nat got her a new outfit for this year but we are saving it for the 4th :-) Notice the hair change in the pictures...some were before school this morning and some were in the evening before a trip to Wal-Mart with her Daddy. My money is on her coming home with a new toy. Jonathon is such a sucker. I hope everyone has a wonderful holiday weekend!
