Project Life: Week 25

Sunday: Happy Father's Day! The Girly got Handy a tree but we haven't had enough rain so we aren't going to plant it until the fall.

Monday: Dear nearly 3 hour afternoon nap, I love you! You can come visit whenever you like. Love, the Lady

Tuesday: The Girly went swimming for the first time. She had fun but it made her sleepy.

Wednesday: Bevo really wanted Handy to throw a ball for him. He kept bringing them over and leaving them by the Man's side.

Thursday: The Girly is getting so big! She loves to sit propped up on the couch or in the chair. Sometimes she tips over but that doesn't seem to bother her much either.

Friday: We took a mini-trip to see how she does in the car. As long as we stopped every few hours for her to eat she did a great job. 

Saturday: We went to visit some cousins on our trip. They all have daughters so we ended up with 6 girls under the age of 8 in the same room!

Project Life: Week 24

Sunday: The Girly wore the first dress we ever bought her to church on Sunday. We went straight to the store after we found out she was a girl and bought the outfit she wore home from the hospital and this dress with the flowers.

Monday: Bevo had another visit with the vet. Handy made to appointment before he knew he had to work 12 hours. Thank goodness the Dr. Pepper Queen came to stay with the Girl so I could take him. I would have had my hands full with both of them. 

Tuesday: Someone was too cool to sleep on Monday... she was awake for almost 13 hours straight. Apparently she had to make up for that on Tuesday to the tune of 2 morning naps and another nap in the afternoon.

Wednesday: The Girly loves to drool. Our shirts almost always have wet spots after we hold her for awhile. If it's this bad now we are all going to end up wearing bibs when she starts teething.

Thursday: Happy Birthday Gram! The plan was to go out to lunch but someone had their fussy pants on so we ended up going through the drive-thru and eating at home.


Friday: Magical Mystery Mushroom pizza of the month + Handy's buy one, get one sodas = a really good dinner. 

Saturday: Happy Birthday Mimster! (I have to get a picture for Saturday. By the time we got there it was dark and I didn't take any pictures)

Project Life: Week 23

Sunday: The Girly is finally fitting into her Longhorn onesie. Now I feel like she has to wear it all the time since she will grow out of it so quick... Hook 'em Horns!

Monday: Handy Manny got to be handy on Monday. I'm pretty sure the shower head is supposed to be in the shower... not in his hand in the kitchen. One trip to Lowes later and the new shower head is where it's supposed to be


Tuesday: The Girly is 2 months old!

Stats: 10 lbs 4 oz. 23 inches long (still in the 25th and 75th percentile for weight and length). We finally moved up to size 1 diapers. Her clothing is mainly 0-3 / 3 month size with newborn pants. She is sleeping 6 hours at night and (sometimes) takes 2-3 naps during the day. It's easier to get things done now that she eats every 2.5 - 3 hours.  

She loves to go places. She sleeps in the car and is usually pleasant when we are shopping/visiting/eating. She had to get some shots at the doctor this month and screamed her head off when they poked her. She drools a lot and likes to leave wet spots on our clothes. We have taken her to church the last 3 weeks. The play mat with the blinking star is her favorite toy and she loves to smile.

Wednesday: I'm so glad it's grilling season! We had our first ears of corn on the cob. They were pretty good. 

Thursday: This is what happens when I get to shop at Kohl's. I hadn't been there to shop for myself since the Girly was born. Of course I got things for her and Handy too.

Friday: The Peanut loves the new toy she got for her car seat. I love that it's an elephant and she loves that it jingles when it moves.

Saturday: We left the Girly with Nana for an hour and this is what we found when we got back. Apparently every girl needs their toenails painted for the summer... even if they happen to have the smallest toenails ever!

Project Life: Week 22

Sunday: We went to Dairy Queen after dinner since I wanted to get a Blizzard. The flavor of the month was Birthday Cake with sprinkles. I love cake and had heard that the Blizzard was really good. The plan was to take a picture before I ate it but it was so good I ended up with a picture of an empty cup!

Monday: Happy Memorial Day! 
love, Handy Manny, Mrs. G and the Girly

 Tuesday: I don't mind getting bills when they look like this.

Wednesday: They were giving out free samples of new Oreos at the store. Of course we ended up buying some. These ones are "creamsicle" flavor with vanilla and orange cream in the middle. They are soooooo good!

Thursday: This is how we really spend our days. The Girly has decided that she would rather be held while she sleeps than lay in her pack-n-play. If somebody holds her she will sleep for hours but if she is set down she will sleep for an hour tops. 


Friday: The Dr. Pepper Queen brought us a whole bag of snacks. They were all left over from the snack shack at school. Yum.

Saturday: Handy found these baby bunnies in the back yard. Thank goodness he found them before he mowed the grass.
