miscellany monday - Link Up HERE

1.  Georgia update:  She STILL has thrush because the gentian violet was a HUGE fiasco!  They gave us the wrong kind at the pharmacy (the kind with 10% alcohol) and it burned her mouth and throat.  Jonathan and I were about ready to kill the stupid pharmacist.  She couldn't eat...she would just scream.  Poor baby...that's why she's had all of these strange symptoms lately and wasn't sleeping like herself.  At one point she was screaming so hard that her entire onsie was soaked in sweat because she was so worked up.  I don't think I've ever felt so sorry for anyone in my entire life.  Well, we went back to the dr. for her 2 month shots and they gave us another prescription and she is back to her normal self...but still has thrush but no mouth or throat burning now.  Thank goodness...and she's sleeping all night again (HUGE sigh of relief!)  Also, she did great with getting her shots.  Her reaction wasn't fussiness or pain but rather excessive drowsiness.  It was hysterical really.  She pretty much slept for 24 hours minus eating.  Notice the slightly purple lips...yeah, that's still left over from the medicine.  (It's not there anymore but it stains for about 24 hours.)


2.  I've ordered these bloomers for G's 3 month pictures.  (We're doing 3, 6, 9, and 12 months and I'm super excited!)


3.  I also ordered these pants for Baylor homecoming (we even made our hotel reservations over a month ago!).  Georgia needs a different Baylor outfit for each day she will be in Waco.  So far she has a BU dress and these pants.  Of course she now needs a shirt to go with them.



4.  I bought a bookshelf to go in the front bedroom.  It was a 15$ GoodWill find and it couldn't be more perfect.  All of this furniture will eventually be Georgia' big girl room furniture.  Love it!  I know it looks cluttered right now.  I just threw some stuff on there very quickly while The Peach was napping.  Let's just add shelf decorating to the list of things I suck at...right along with mantle design.  Sigh...


5.  A few weeks ago Jonathan tore up a HUGE shrub in our yard because it was just getting too big and out of control.  It's the large one on the right.  In the after picture you can see the damage it did to the shrub behind it but now that the large monster is gone that will hopefully recover.  We still have a ways to go with re vamping the landscaping but it's hard to find the time with a two month old!

6.  I made G another rosette headband/bow thingy.  I think it's pretty cute!


7.  I officially know how to use my monogrammer.  Watch out world!  So far I've done onsies and a few dresses I already had.  Anything fabric with a space large enough is fair game.  I also did two bath robes.  But...on the robes I used tear away stabilizer and it SUCKS!  Once you tear it away it leaves the fabric very warped.  I'm thinking I just need to throw it away.  At least I was just practicing on cheap bath robes.  Oh, and my first attempt at applique was a massive failure.  The "E" is totally off center.  Oh well, at least I tried!  I need to download some new fonts for my machine as well...when I find the time.

Love the headband and all the clothes. Little girl stuff is so fun! How scary that she was given the wrong medication. It must have killed you to realize it was the wrong one and actually was hurting her :(

Patrice said...

I love that you have a monogrammer, and am also very jealous! I would have way to much fun with that thing! Found you through MM.

Lyndsey said...

Ditto Mallorie - where is the dress from? and do they sell boy stuff? I'm looking for a cute BU romper for Liam, but all anyone sells are like Razorbacks, Old Miss, UT, etc....
