Georgia Kate is 21 Months!

Georgia are 21 Months Old today.  I have never done a post like this for you, but you are changing so much and I thought that it would be fun to document all your changes and how much fun you are these days!  You are so much fun to be around and I just love your personality.  I have to say that I have loved you at every age, but this is my favorite.  If I could make you stop growing right now I would!

I was worried because I didn't think you were ever going to talk, but you have really started talking and using your words.  You definitely understand EVERYTHING we are saying to you.  Some of your sweet words are "dada", "pink", "go", "pease" (please), and a few more that I can't remember off the top of my head.  You are going to be a smart little girl!

It is so nice that you LOVE school now.  You jump out of the car and head right in without looking back.  It is kinda sad because you don't even mind leaving mommy and daddy, but it is nice because you are so happy going to school playing with your friends.  You are learning so much there and your teacher has even started working on potty training with you.  She thinks you are ready because you take her a new diaper every time you have a wet diaper.  On the days that you don't go to school you get to play with Annie. She loves you and you love her.  I am so lucky that we have such a great place for you stay while Mommy is at work.  Y'all play play play! I am so happy that you love where you go during the week while we are at work. It is hard to leave you sometimes, but I know that you are in good hands. 

I love you so much and can't wait to see what the Lord has in store for your me and your Daddy.  He has created a beautiful little girl that is growing up so fast and I can't wait to see what wonderful things you will do one day.  I love that you are getting bigger and growing up, but I sometimes wish I could make you stop for a little bit.

Love, Mommy

Beignets and Elfkin

We have had such a fun time in Ruston with Gogo and all of our other family.  Georgia Kate has been such a sweet girl and has really been the perfect angel.  Yesterday morning Daddy and Georgia Kate went and got beignets from Crescent City Coffee shop in Ruston.  Georgia Kate LOVED them! She ate 4 or 5 of these!  When she woke up Elfkin, our Elf on a shelf was sitting on the box ready for Georgia Kate to see her!  Hope you are all enjoying your time with friends and family during this holiday season. Merry Christmas!

Tinkerbell and Christmas Trees!

I am so far behind on blogging so I thought I better catch up before Christmas day rolled around. Our sweet little girl is really into Tinkerbell these days!  She LOVES her!!!!  I am not really sure why she has become her new infatuation, but she definitely is her new best friend.  We figured this out one night when a Disney commercial came on and Tinkerbell went flying across the TV Georgia Kate went crazy!!!!!!  She left the room and went straight to her playroom.  Robert and I looked at each other asking "what in the world?"  She came back with her little plastic Tinkerbell figurine.  Ever since then Georgia Kate LOVES all things Tinkerbell. So...we get an ornament for her each year and this year she picked out a Tinkerbell ornament.  It is actually really cute when she runs to the tree to show everyone that graces our doors HER ornament.
She also loves our Christmas tree.  She runs into the room every morning to turn the lights on and as soon as we get home in the afternoon she runs straight to the tree and turns the lights on.  We have this cool little button she can push and poof they come on.  I couldn't pass up this sweet picture of her holding up her ornament! Doesn't she look precious!

Halloween Party at School

Georgia Kate's little school does a cute little parade at Halloween and then has parties in their classrooms. I was in charge of the party for her class so I took the day off to be a "mommy".  I always say that I am not quiet ready to be a "stay at home" mom, but I do want to take the time off so I don't miss out on her fun things that she gets to do.  So...Gogo was in town and I decided that I would volunteer at her school that morning and then be there for the parade.  It was LOTS of fun!
We had little pumpkins for the kids to decorate and one of the dad's brought pumpkin cookies with icing and sprinkles.  Georgia Kate LOVED it and had so much fun doing these little activities. I really didn't think that she would take the time to decorate her cookie or pumpkin, but she did great! We had a really good time and I was so glad that I took the time off work and most of all I was glad that Gogo got to see her at school.

 Miss Ashley...her sweet teacher!

 I loved this beacuse she looks so grown up...she was showing me where her classroom was.

 We bought this book for Miss Ashley and the classroom

The other little girl in her class dressed up like a cheerleader too! 

Pumpkin Patch Fun!

We took Georgia Kate to the pumpkin patch this fall and we had so much fun with her.  Obviously last year she didn't really know what was going on and she just kinda sat there, but this year she was all over the place.  She ran from pumpkin to pumpkin and had the best time ever.  Robert's parents joined us for the fun and they really enjoyed watching Georgia Kate play.  She is getting so big and really had the cutest personality!

 I had to post this picture because I thought that is totally showed you Georgia Kate and her current personality and how she is always on the go!

18 Months Old

 This is my sweet baby girl at 18 Months old...kinda late since we are about to be 20 months old tomorrow! I just thought these pictures were adorable and wanted to share them.  Georgia Kate is such a sweet girl and we are enjoying her and her personality so much.

Sweet Home Ruston, Louisiana!

Robert, Georgia Kate, and I packed up and headed to Ruston a couple of weeks ago. We had so much fun and enjoyed seeing all kinds of friends and family. I was headed home for my 10 year reunion, which was nothing like I thought it would be, but it was fun to see old friends. I never thought I would say this, but I love my life in Orlando. I did enjoy seeing friends, but I must admit it was great seeing my family. I hadn't seen my grandmothers since I was in town last March for my Grandfather's funeral. It was good to just hang out and spend time with the people I love. There are lots of pictures! I am so sorry, but I have been so bad about blogging. Hope you enjoy the pics and the glimpse into my sweet family! I think they are pretty close to perfect!

Georgia Kate and my sweet Grandmother. She has just recently moved into an assissted living and Georgia Kate loves to go visit her!

Georgia Kate getting on the door! This door was at my grandparents old house that we grew up going to. When I was in college they moved to another house and brought the door with them. It had lots of memories and they wanted to keep those memories going! I can't tell you how many times my Pawpaw measured our height on the door!

Of course she is helping!

The Family headed out to the picnic for my reunion.

My precious baby girl...look at that smile!

Go Gators!

Go Gators!!!!!!!
It was a great Saturday in our household last weekend as I am sure that is the case for most of you good southerners that love fall and LOVE football. We had been looking forward to last Saturday for weeks. We had the best time last weekend watching games and just hanging out.
Even though the gators really didn't show up and play their best we still enjoyed dressing in our orange and blue and getting ready for gameday. We started out our morning with a little College Gameday and then moved on to the Florida game and ended with watching the good ole tigers play. It was a great day and we enjoyed did Georgia Kate. Look how cute my little gator girl is.

Back to School

Georgia Kate started preschool this past week. We were so nervous about how she would adjust since she screams every time we leave her. She did GREAT and we were so proud of our little angel. She seemed to have adjusted well and I think that she really likes her new school. I love these pictures. She was loving her photo session this morning. How cute is her backpack?

All ready to go with her cute pink backpack

How many years do you think she will give Daddy a goodbye kiss?

Playing with the baby...she loves her a baby
