Found it!

Today I had to return overdue books to the library. Ugh. I'm totally blaming it on the library's computer system that didn't tell me the books were overdue until they were 3 days late.  (and they didn't even send me the "warning you have books due in a couple days email")

Anyways, while Georgia was eating breakfast, I was trying to collect the books and get everything organized so we could get out the door. I could NOT find one book. I looked twice in Georgia's bookshelf. I looked in our bookshelf and in her toy bins around the house, trying to find it.

I hadn't seen it in a couple days. I know it was a book Georgia had enjoyed, so I asked her about it. She said she didn't know. She finished eating and I got her out of her chair. I started getting dressed and finished getting everything together.  All of a sudden she comes out of her room saying, "Fount it!" Sure enough it was the correct book. I still don't know where it was, but I am just amazed that she understood the title of the book I was looking for, and knew where it was (or remembered what it looked like!)
There's a lot going on in this little fashionista's brain!

2-years old!

Georgia's first wedding
This is obviously quite late. Georgia has been two for over a week now. The reason I am hesitating to post this is that I want to do a "photo-shoot" with her, and haven't gotten to that yet. Oh well! I will try to write about her being two and when I get to taking pictures, I will post them.
She loves being like mommy

Height: 36.5 inches
Weight: 30 pounds
Shoes: 8

Helping mommy make some cookies - probably eating more marshmallows than we used in the cookies 

Speaking: It is amazing the transformation that has happened over the last couple months. Georgia has always had a high vocabulary, but just recently has started putting words together to make sentences. Now, most of the time she speaks in 3+ word sentences. She learns words so quickly, some new ones are "snowman" and "Christmas trees" and "playground", "jamies" and so on. I am guessing she has a vocabulary of 500+ words.

Sleeping: Her sleeping still isn't where I want it to be. She wakes up once a night, I think mostly because her diaper is soaking wet. She sleeps from 8pm to 7 or 8am, and then wakes up once from 4:30-6:30 and will go back to sleep after that. Her naps have been a struggle, with her sleeping only 1.5 hours most days - and taking up to an hour to fall asleep.

Loves: Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, stuffed animals, playing pretend, naked time, coloring and painting, nail polish, McDonalds playplace, whatever she can do to be like mommy (pushing a shopping cart around, putting on makeup, nail polish and wearing my shoes)

Hates: bugs, spiders, bees 

She LOVES the beach and asks that we go almost every day

Breakfast the day of her birthday - notice her Mickey Mouse balloon ;)

Daddy come back!

I have not been very good about updating my blog.... I'm going to try to do more often, shorter posts, especially now that Georgia is talking a lot more! She sure says some cute things that I'd like to remember.

Georgia snuggling with Dave just a couple minutes after she woke up from a nap.

Dave left for a short business trip on Sunday. He was just driving an hour away or so, and came back today (Tuesday). We told Georgia that he was leaving during lunch, a half an hour or so before he left. The first thing she said, (looking straight at Dave), was, "Daddy, come back!" And of course he reassured her that he would be coming back. She repeated it maybe 10 times throughout that half hour, and gave him a kiss goodbye before he left ;)

She just loves her daddy so much!
