Monday At Our House

Today was an awesome fall day. We slept in a little then went to swim lessons. It was Georgia's third week and Miss Karen said she is doing great and even asked if we'd taken her swimming during the week! All she wanted to do was go under water and blow bubbles. Forget trying to get her to float on her back, she would flip right over and duck her head under. At the end of class, Miss Karen even put some rings on the steps and Georgia went underwater by herself and got them. I'm amazed at our little water baby at only three weeks in!

She took a super long nap when we got home, so I was able to get a lot done around the house. The entire downstairs is out of boxes and most of the upstairs is. I really want to start decorating but I don't know where to start and we are way over budget on our spending for this month already. We put everything on our credit card and pay it off every month, our bill closes on the 20th, so about the time Mimi gets here to keep Georgia company, I'll be out finding fabrics and starting on some projects!

After Georgia's nap we took a long walk to look for some "quack quacks" (more like "kyack kyacks") and play in the park. Speaking of quack quacks, Georgia is talking so much now! I really need to sit and make a list of all the words she is saying. She knows there is a name for everything and she is able to communicate her wants and needs pretty well with me. There are some words that she says and gets frustrated when I repeat them back incorrectly or can't figure out what she's talking about. I'm dying to know what's going on in that little mind of hers!

She picks out her clothes every morning. She just gets right in her closet and pulls on something that she wants to wear. This little Laura Ashley sweater suit was great for today's weather. And I love her in baby pink, it makes her cheeks look even rosier! This is such a sweet age. She is getting so big (too big) and doing so much for herself, yet she's still my tiny little baby who needs me for so much.  I have a feeling that will sum up the way I think about her for the rest of my life - always as my baby even though she's growing fast.
