Project Life: Week 42

Sunday: The Girly loves her da-da. She will tell you if you ask her too. She has stopped talking about bu-ba and started talking about da-da all the time. 

Monday: We lit a candle for Camden's sister Addilee and all the other little babies that died in the last year.

Tuesday: This is real life. An impromptu trip to First Care for my back made for a busy evening. We came home, ate dinner, Handy picked up my script at the pharmacy, came home and we went to bed!

Wednesday: Let's hope she is always this happy to do laundry.

Thursday: Handy and I celebrated our 4th anniversary with donuts and flowers.

Friday: A stuffy nose for the Girly = some medicine and spending the day in her jammies.

Friday: We got a coat for the Girly last June for $9.00 at Babies-r-us but she didn't have a hat. Problem solved! This hat is the cutest thing and it even came with matching mittens. Somebody's ready for the snow.

Project Life: Week 41

Sunday: The Girl likes to be up high. This is the highest place in the house!

Monday: We finally got a new comforter set. The one we were using was almost 5 years old. It had faded terribly on the Handyman's side and had a hole in it. I like how this one came with toss pillows. It has euro shams too but we don't have the right size pillows for them yet.

Tuesday: State Report Cards came out today and our school was rated EXCELLENT! We got cookies as a reward for all out hard work. Yay Rockets!

Wednesday: 6-month well baby check for the Girly. We were at the doctor's office from 4:25 until 6:45. She got a book, a sticker and 4 shots. We got Wendy's for dinner.

 Thursday: The Peanut likes to ride on Handy's knee when he bounces her. She has even fallen asleep while bouncing. I usually sing "Sally the Camel" while we bounce.

Friday: Last week I went shopping for some new brown shoes. I found a pair that I wanted but they were $95. Thank goodness I didn't buy them. I found these new ones in my closet while looking for a sweater. I had completely forgotten that I bought them! So now I have new brown shoes.

Saturday: Time to make baby food! We made sweet potatoes and apples. I think it was kinda fitting that Handy was wearing his Texas hoody while making baby food that was Texas orange.

Project Life: Week 40

Sunday: We took the Girly to visit Miss Heather. We hadn't seen them in ages and it was nice to get to have lunch. We laughed that between the two of them (the Girly's hips and Miss Heather's wrists) we could get one good person.

Monday: Dinner was the best grilled cheese ever! Swiss and bacon with avocado on french bread. Yum!

Tuesday: This is what happens when the Lady tries to pack the pump bag at 5 in the morning. No lids = saran wrap from the cafeteria and rubber bands to the rescue. The funniest part was putting the bottles in the cup holders of the car so they wouldn't spill on the way home.

Wednesday: It's fall! I love putting this wreath on the door every year. Too bad the day I hung it up it was over 70 degrees.

Thursday: I finally got around to sending Mount Union the Girly's birth announcement not to long ago and they sent us this awesome welcome pack. I'm pretty sure the certificate of preliminary admission is my favorite part.

Friday: The Girl is 6 months old!

Stats: 15.5 lbs, 26 inches long. Size 3-6 and 6 month clothes. Size 2 diaper. The harness has set her back a little bit with her scooting but she is sitting up like a champ. She loves her cereal and has been using a sippy cup to drink water. She loves any toy with a tag and to read (more like chew on) books. She talks all the time (it sounds like ba-ba-ba-ba) and blow raspberries. She will smile at anybody if you ask her to "ham it up". She has been waking up two times at night (usually once around 1:30 and then again at 4) and she has two teeth. 

We had a visit today to get her harness adjusted. They said everything looks good and we go back Oct. 23 for a second ultrasound to check the positioning of her left hip and the range of motion.

Saturday: We went to the orchard to get apples and some cider. They had a bunch of pumpkins in front of the store so of course I had to put the Girl in them for a picture. She was more interested in eating the straw they were sitting in than smiling for a picture.

Project Life: Week 39

Blogging by Handy Man:

 Sunday:    Looks like I stirred a little to hard while making granola bars.

 Monday:   Thanks to Charlie for bringing in eggplants we got to have fresh eggplant parm.

Tuesday:   Took the Girly to Akron for her appointment and now she has to wear this harness for three to four months. She has gotten use to it now at first she hated it.

(We were up constantly the first two nights... like ever hour and a half. Thank goodness that didn't last too long)

Wednesday:   Ella loves her brother but we have to make sure she doesn't hurt him.

Thursday:    Thanks to all our lovely family we don't need to buy the girl clothes.

Friday:     Looks like the Girly loves to snack on her bib while waiting for her cereal.

Saturday:    The Lady got the Peanut a bean bag but it looks like more of the filling got on the floor then in the bag. Well at least Bubby didn't get to them.
