Georgia June Update

Georgia is 15 months now!  After she turned a year I figured I'd stop doing monthly updates but honestly she's changed a lot in the last two months since she turned one so I figured I'd update if not for anyone else but myself to remember these huge milestones that she's hit these last couple months. 

G hit 2 big milestones since she turned one; the first one was she finally started teething!  Just a couple weeks after I stopped nursing her and right after she turned one, she broke her first few teeth all at once. She's been a drooling, snotty, feverish mess since, but she looks adorable with her top two front teeth!  The top two are just about all the way in and the bottom couple are working their way through.  It was definitely something I was glad did not happen while I was nursing!  

The other big milestone was Georgia began walking!  She had been cruising the furniture and taking a couple steps here and there for awhile, but just did not seem to have the confidence to walk.  She could FLY with her push walker, but wasn't ready to let go.  Finally, on Easter we were at my Grandmas who has a house full of carpet and that seemed to be exactly what she needed because she took off.  Our house is all hardwood and I think it maybe effected her confidence, once she hit the carpet, that was it & she's been walking ever since.  It's seriously adorable and so fun!

Georgia can say a few words like hot, hi, bye, kitty, ball, and back.  She can blab up a storm of her own words too.  She is still sleeping in our bed but we are hoping to move her to her crib permanently once I get pregnant again.  She sleeps through the night now and it's magical.  Once I stopped nursing, she immediately began sleeping 10-12 uninterrupted hours.  She's slowed down on growing which is nice because we have been able to get a lot more use out of all the clothes!  She's currently wearing 12 month and some 18 month clothing.  Her appetite is that of a grown man.  She eats anything and everything.  Her favorites are fish, cheese, blueberries, bananas, and pouches.  She's still napping 2x a day and still drinking lots of breastmilk and whole milk.  She's an absolute joy to be around and almost always smiling, however she is a toddler and has her moments.

Last month we took off for a quick family getaway to the Wisconsin Dells, it's about 3 hours north of us so it's an easy place to zip up to where there is a lot to do, even in the off season there was enough to keep us occupied, especially with a baby.  Most of the popular places there are big resorts like Great Wolf, The Wilderness, and Chula Vista, however I didn't want to spend over $200 a night so we opted for a smaller hotel with a mini water park in it which was perfect for us and was only $110 a night.  We ended up having the entire water park area to ourselves for most of the afternoon Saturday and Georgia had an absolute blast making Joe take her down the slide over and over.  We did Paul Bunyan's which is a "shanty" with breakfast served family style.  Delish and so fun.  The weekend was perfect and just what we needed.

Last weekend we celebrated Mother's Day!  Saturday mom and dad had a parents night out and Georgia slept over at grandmas.  Mama had too much to drink, but really enjoyed a date night out with daddy, just the two of us.  Joe got me a huge orchid for mother's day and Georgia and I spent the day with my mom at the winery and then visited with Joe's mom and my grandma.  The weather was cold and rainy all weekend which was kind of a bummer, but we still had fun.

Other than that its been pretty quiet around these parts.  Looking forward to another Memorial Day weekend coming up pretty quickly here, but other than that we don't have too much planned which is nice.  We have been soaking in all the warm weather and trying to get outside as much as possible.  Georgia has been obsessed with bubbles lately and also loves to play on the neighbors swing set.  We will be looking forward to pool days and lots of outside time this summer plus traveling to Georgia for our FET for baby #2!
