Project Life: Week 37 and 38

Sunday: We went to the DG family reunion. There were 4 babies there all under 6 months old. Paw Paw thought the Girly needed to taste some sweet tea. I'm pretty sure more of it was spilled down her front than went in her mouth.


Monday: Both of our kids love to strut. We have been trying to take Bubby for more walks before the weather gets too cold.

Tuesday: The girly finally found out that if she pushed the buttons on her exersaucer it would play music. We can also set it to say the colors or make animal sounds.

Wednesday: Handy gave the girl his empty V8 bottle. She probably thought her supper had been super sized. 

Thursday: Homemade Chinese food for dinner. Handy was happy! The crab rangoon were really yummy but the General Tso sauce wasn't that great. 

Friday: We needed to go to Sam's Club in the worst way. It had been months since we were there. We stocked up on some things and had to get this piggy sleeper for the Girl.

Saturday: Rocket rah, Rocket rah, Rah rah Rockets! Mimi went to the football game with us... thank goodness. We made it through the Homecoming court and first quarter before the girl got fussy and we got really hot. We stood by the fence for the second quarter and headed home at the half. 

Sunday: Miss Carol made some tutus for the Girly. They make her look even cuter than normal... If that's even possible.

Monday: Handy found the recipe for homemade Chic-fil-a. I ate most of it before I remembered that I wanted to take a picture. We baked the nuggets instead of baking them but they were still super tasty.

Tuesday: Buddies! Bevo is always interested in what his sister is doing. I think he likes it when she goes to be though because then he gets quality time with his people.

Wednesday: The Girly got a package in the mail. I can't wait until she is big enough to wear this cute outfit from the Columbus Couple. Those socks are just too cute!

 Thursday: We had a surprise visit from Gram. The Girl was happy to see her so they had to get their picture taken.

Friday: Now that the Peanut has baby biters we get to brush her teeth. She needed her own toothbrush and toothpaste. We got a longer handled brush too. It's supposed to make it easier to get in her tiny mouth... we will see.  

Saturday: Two football games in two weeks! We went to see our favorite cheerleader. It was chilly but the girl was a hit in her bear jacket. She was super bundled up and toasty.

Project Life: Week 36

Sunday: I usually put the Peanut on the bed when I dry my hair. For some reason the blow dryer always puts her to sleep. Unfortunately we can't let her sleep since we are ready to go. 

Monday: We went to Nanny and Paw Paw's for Labor Day. The best part for the little kids about visiting is feeding the fish. 

 Tuesday: We took the Girly to a specialist to get her hips examined. The pediatrician thought she may have hip dysplasia so he referred her to an orthopedic doctor just to be safe. They checked her out and said her hips looked perfect. We go back on the 25th for an ultrasound just to be sure.

Wednesday: The Girl is 5 months old! Stats: Still 13 lbs. Size 3-6 and 6 months clothes. Size 1-2 diapers. She eats every 3.5 - 4 hours and has started eating cereal. She still wakes up once at night usually around 3:00.

She started going to the Pond at church and is rolling around like crazy. She holds her head up like a champ and tries to scoot around on her tummy. The exersaucer is her favorite toy and she spends a lot of time in there. She is learning lots of stuff from the babysitter's daughter who is a little older than she is. They have become pretty good buddies. 

Thursday: Pinterest has made making the grocery list super easy! Rather than think about what we want we just check out the recipe board. There are always great things on there and it keeps our menu interesting. 

 Friday: Handy gave our pizza box to the Girly. She thought it was a pretty good toy... too bad it was empty!

Saturday: It's finally cool enough for Sweet Cheeks to where her baby Chucks. I'm glad her feet didn't get too big before we could wear them on her.

Project Life: Week 35

Sunday: We took the Girly to a class at church for the first time. One of us had spent the last 3 weeks walking around in the hall with her during the service so we decided to take her to the Pond. She did great and was happy to see us when we picked her up.

Monday: This is Handy's solution to sitting down when the girl wants to stand up. As long as she is high in the air she is happy. I don't know if I want him training her to be an acrobat at her age.

Tuesday: Handy surprised me with crazy daisies and the new tobyMac cd. I like surprises.

Wednesday: I think I have officially earned the title of "bag lady". I have so many clutchy objects that I have to make two trips to the car before we leave and when we get home.

Thursday: The Girly is really starting to love her exersaucer. I think it may have replaced her baby mat as the favorite toy around here.

 Friday: We went to calling hours for Grandpa Fawver. I'm glad he got to see Ella at the beginning of the month. She liked rocking in his chair with him.

Saturday: We took the Girly to her first baseball game. She was more interested in Handy's empty pepsi cup than watching the game. She did great and didn't get too fussy. There were 2 other babies in our section so we didn't have to worry about being disruptive.
