I took the kids up to my mom’s house for a 6-day visit two weeks ago. We had to leave Shane behind because he had to study for a certification test. We had a great time! I did lose my marbles a few times, due to lack of sleep, but my mom was great at talking me down from my heightened emotional states and we ended up having a good time. I had gotten used to Shane letting me sleep in until 8am, so I was getting a few hours less of sleep every night. Georgiana is consistent about waking up between 5:45 and 6:30 am every morning, no matter what time she previously woke up to eat. I think I mentioned this before. She’s still doing it.
My mom was really surprised at how she seemed to be developing so much just in the few days we were there. And she’s right! While we were there, Georgiana made great progress with holding her head up and also started focusing on our faces. My mom bought some tiny barrettes, which I honestly hadn’t thought about buying since she is so young. But, her hair really is long enough for them already. See?
And so, I bought a few more hair thingies at the Gilroy Garlic Festival yesterday. She’s so stinkin’ cute! (you got me saying this now Joanna!)
While we were at my mom’s, a homeless dog followed her home when she was out walking her dog Dora. Caleb fell in love with him and we named him Pip. He’s got a great temperament. Caleb carried him around like this for about 5 minutes and he didn’t fight at all. I’m not at all a dog person, but I really did like him too.
We also got to visit Derrek and Kainoa at there new rental house. It’s so awesome! Big and comfy and tons of trees around. Have a mentioned how much I love having family near by?
