Week in the Life - IV

Monday was for sure my favorite.  
Mondays are long though.  Not only is it Monday (ugh) but it is gymnastics day and Georgia has two classes back to back.  I get both kids to the gym and Jonathan meets me there after work and gets Milam and takes him home.  (And, Milam in his first JonJon of the season is literally my favorite thing ever.  He was so cute I just couldn't stand it!)
This Monday Jonathan got Milam and drove all over town planning a surprise Valentine's Day dinner for Georgia and I.  It was the sweetest thing.  Necklace and flowers for me.  Beanie Boos for Georgia.  Nothing Bundt Cakes for all of us.  Homemade chicken alfredo with broccoli.  YUM.
Tuesday was Valentine's day and Jonathan had to work late (which is why we celebrated early).  Milam and I hung out all day.  I let Georgia open her Valentine's day present while she ate her breakfast in my room.  Night gown, gummy bears, new water bottle, stickers, coloring set...can't think of what else and I didn't get pictures because she eats in the dark with just the TV on.

Milam got new footies, a teether, and new bibs.  He was really excited.
LOOK AT ME!  I'm wearing 12 month jammies...and I'm 5.5 months!
I kind of declared it Valentine's week.  Georgia was excited because she got to wear pretty red and pink all week.  And, she is very intrigued by the fact that she can make her hands into a heart.
This was my attempt to get a picture of Georgia while it was raining.  It was the best I could do.  On Saturday and Sunday it was 80 and 90 degrees.  On Tuesday it was 50.  Dressing her for crazy weather is hard.
 The sun did eventually come out and I snapped a quick pic of my second Valentine.  He is the cutest little chunk.
We ended Tuesday with dinner at my mom's since Jonathan wasn't coming home until super late.  They put their jammies on before we headed over there.  Dinosaurs for them both!
On Wednesday we didn't really do much.  Jonathan had to work late again and Milam and I just hung out at home most of the day and ran a few errands.  Milam is working on crawling SO HARD!  He is so close and is making a little progress each day.  Georgia goes to church on Wednesday with my mom and step dad so it was still just Milam and I at the end of the day as well.
Again, didn't do too much on Thursday.  Milam and I hung out most of the day and I experimented with indoor natural light photography.  Milam tries to grab the light and gets so confused when it disappears.
Once Jonathan got home we headed up to G's school for game night and had a lot of fun.

 And this one y'all.  She is giving me a run for my money.  So much talking back and attitude and tears and screaming.  It is so frustrating.  Hopefully this too shall pass.
I'm so excited that today is FRIDAY and two of my best friends are going to be in town this weekend!  Yay!  I'll leave you with another favorite...these three.

Weekends

February 13, 2017

I kicked off the weekend with another VoxBox through Influenster.  I got a lot of great stuff!
It was spaghetti night on Friday and I gave Milam a big handful of noodles.  He loved them so much and it was pretty much the cutest thing I had ever seen in my life! Plus it let's him work on his fine motor skills!
This kid likes to snuggle in our bed in the morning!  I've told her she can't get out of bed until the sun is up.  It is working on letting her dad and I get a few extra minutes of sleep.
 Jonathan and I had a surprise party to go to on Saturday night and then planned on going out to dinner after to celebrate Valentine's day early.  Georgia did not want us to leave.  She's used to being toted all over with us.  I had Jonathan snap a few pictures of us talking before we left.

We did A LOT of yard work on Saturday so when I cleaned up I used a lot of my VoxBox items to get ready for our date night.  (Shea Moisture Argan Oil and Almond Milk Shampoo and Tame Creme, Madam CJ Walker's Brassica seed oil, and Sinful Colors nail polish in Kiss Goodnight only on my ring fingers...PS I know nothing about hair care and makeup or beauty products!) and I got a LOT of compliments on my hair!  Yay!  Maybe I'll be out buying new shampoo today!
We all wore silly shirts with the birthday boy's face on them.  My sister in law and Jonathan both had Beyonce.  I was supposed to have Trump but it got messed up so I went with the Mona Lisa.
On Sunday we just went to sunday school and then brought Milam home to nap before we headed into Houston for some photo shoots.  Before the shoots I squeezed my own two cuties in!  We love visiting the city but know it is so not the place for us to raise our kids.
While I was working Jonathan took the babies to Discovery Green and they had a great time.
 First snow cone.  Heard he loved it!
 She is a monkey bar master!
Then, we went to one of our favorites.  Punk's.  It is southern food and so good!  My bitty baby passed out and Georgia played the night away on the faux lawn.  It is all enclosed so the kids can't get out.  Best place in town to go with kids.  Although one lady sat down (about my age) and looked around and not so politely said, "um...look at all these kids.  Ugh.....GAGGG!)  Really lady.  Mature much?!  Needless to say, they left.  If you go treat yourself to sweet tea, loaded tater tots, and a chicken biscuit!
Happy Monday and sorry for any typos!

Week in the Life III - All The Love

February 10, 2017

I've started a new tradition that I stole from someone else (if it was you please leave a comment because I can't remember who I'm stealing it from!) of having a fun little night on the first Friday of every month.  Georgia is very serious about her Friday movie nights with us (that we started when Milam was born) so now I just add in a few extra fun things on the first Friday of the month.  This past Friday was the first Friday of the month and it was a good one.

When Milam got up we headed to Montgomery Bakehouse, our favorite local bakery and picked up some goodies for the night.  I wanted to make sure I snagged some good stuff before they sold out of my favorites.

I've been trying to get Milam to stay up right in his bouncer to let his food digest since he spits up so much (and now that I think about it he's been occasionally coughing in bed...I wonder if he has reflux?) and found him like this...guess I should strap him in from now on.
 Nope, he can't crawl yet but he was trying SO hard to get to the back door today.  Not happening bitty boy. (I edit and add words on SnapSeed on my phone when I'm going to be using Insta Stories, which is where I posted these - MrsEmilyPowell)  Please don't judge me by my Insta Story typos.  I never catch them until it's too late #momlife
I bought three cookies and three macaroons so we could each have one.  Georgia LOVED hers.
I finished decorating for Valentine's day a few days before I took these but it was super cloudy outside so I couldn't get any good pictures.  Even with full sun outside it is still super hard to get good indoor images in our house.
I literally just threw everything up within a few minutes but I still like it.  The entry way needs some work and the shelves were just an after thought.  I really like the mantle area though.

I put Milam down for a nap after school pick up and Georgia and I melted some chocolate chips to dip the cookies we already had in.  It was a quick fun cooking project and she enjoyed it.
Once he got up we ventured outside to soak up a little vitamin D, which I've heard can prevent the flu before we got too cold and came in.  We're weak here in Texas.
After baths and putting Milam in bed I divided out our treats, bought Trolls on Amazon, and we settled in for family movie night.  It was a really cute movie.
Saturday, I had a bridal shoot that went really well and when I got home Megan and Paul came over for dinner.  Seth and Georgia get along really well and this was Seth when we asked him to tell Georgia bye.  PS - G is about to take a bath hence the weird hairspray hair.
Sunday, I skipped church but J and G went.  I dare not type this out but none of us has been sick the winter season and I know SO many people who are sick to M and I just stayed home.  I really don't want to chance it.  G was born in May so she was older/bigger when she went into the winter than M is.

After they got home Georgia went down the street to play and then her and her friend came back over here to play some more.  They played the entire afternoon and evening.  It was so nice but my goodness she's getting big!
That evening we watched the Super Bowl with mom and step dad and of course had football cupcakes.  My husband played football in high school, had a offer to play college football that he turned down, and even coached football (begrudgingly) for a few years, and honestly he is just not that into sports on TV.  So luckily, sports are something we don't have on very often ;)
Monday was a busy day.  Milam was unhappy and irritable which isn't his normal style.  It is also gymnastics day.  After we had dinner and got M to bed I sent Jonathan and Georgia to Chiller Bee. Jonathan picks up M from gym and makes dinner and said M was pretty bad so I decided to let J and G have some quality time since I get to watch her for two hours at gym.  And her in her new star wars pants just because.
Tuesday we spent a lot of time outside and running errands.  We also had my mom, dad, and step dad over for dinner.  We see them a lot.
Milam is so enjoying his baby food.  We are making it ourselves and he literally cannot get enough.  He's sitting in my lap as I type this and talking to this picture of himself :)
On Wednesday Milam was up early so we went on a walk.  He took bad naps even with Tylenol and crying it out so we spent a lot of time in the back yard and a lot of time in the stroller.
Thursday was a good day and we still spent a lot of time outside.  We've taken walks every day this week because the weather has been so mild.
I snapped this picture while Georgia was waiting on my step dad to come get her and take her to school
Then, I snapped this of Milam because he is getting so big.  The days of leaving him on a blanket on the floor are almost over.  He doesn't stay put anymore.
 To kill time at the end of the day I took Georgia outside to ride her scooter.  She loves that thing.
 Then she was exploring and looked over at me and said, "I'm! So! Brave!"
 One of her favorite things to do is get Jonathan's junk bin and some tools and build things.  Keeps her occupied for a long while!
We started off our day bundled up and ended it almost hot.  TX weather is so strange.
 Hat hair
 Georgia's super healthy super lovey after school snack...
 Some of just Milam and I...
Annnnd...with that...we are onto another Friday!  Happy weekend everyone!
