As the title of this post clearly states...I have no time to blog anymore :( (I have even tried 3 times the last couple of days to post this short and sweet post and even have G in my lap right now trying to get this posted!)
Lots has changed since the last update...4 months have past and Georgia is 6 months old. Here are some recent pics of the little one!
Georgia loves looking at ceiling fans, smiling at mommy and daddy, and falling asleep in our arms. She is liking baths better, still doesn't t like to be cold at all and has started to "talk" to us. She loves it when there is lots going on and loves to soak in all that is around her. She is sleeping 6-7 hrs at night and has gone 8 hrs three times within the last week. She is still sleeping in our room but we are going to transition into her crib soon...which will be a sad day for mama! We have found that Georgia travels well and is a pretty flexible baby. She is such a joy and we are loving every moment with her.
On November 14, 2011, (5 days before due date) we went into the hospital for induction at 7:30 and Georgia Renee James was born at 6:36 pm. She was 10 lb 7 oz and was 20 inches long. She had a full head of dark hair and was beautiful!! It was such an incredible, life-changing day!!!
Yesterday, Georgia was 1 week old. She has been such a joy and we are loving every minute of it. We have had a lot of visitors and help this first week which we are so grateful for. More to come as far as birth pics and other pics.
Soon we will get to meet our sweet Georgia! Only 10 days (or less) in fact! We have been getting things ready and are almost done with the nursery.
I just reread my "23 weeks" post- how my goal was to finish her nursery before my third trimester. Well here I am 38 weeks and still have a few finishing touches to do in there! Well it was a good goal...just didn't come close. Well my revised goal is to have it done by this weekend so I am hoping to be able to post pictures of her room by Monday. I just love it and can't wait for all to see it!!!
This is what hunting looks like when you are around 8 months pregnant. *disclaimer: my doc ok'ed the hunts
Dove hunting at 7.5 months
*for some reason I felt more at ease with a towel around my belly cause I thought it would muffle the noise more. Not sure if this did anything-probably not but it did give me peace of mine and made me look more ridiculous than I already did.
Deer hunting at 8.5 months
*we were hunting out of a ground blind not a tree stand (safety first!)
We bow hunted and I say "we" because Jonathan had to help me get my bow back since I have lost my core strength due to the baby bump and can't draw as much as I used to.
Some perks about hunting when you are this far along...
1) Extra attention to comfort. Now Jonathan has always been concerned with my comfort when we are hunting or anywhere for that matter. But it is magnified when pregnant. Notice the recliner chair that I sat in while dove hunting versus what Jonathan is sitting in which is the norm. His, not so comfy. But mine was heavenly.
My deer hunting chair didn't recline but was just as comfortable!
2) "Hunt-side" service. Jonathan would always drive me right up to the blind or the area where we were dove hunting, help me get settled in and then go park the ATV far away and then walk in. Normally I would just walked in with him but not this time-carrying 30 extra lbs and his first born child! I got valet service! He knows how to treat me right!!
3) Comfy wardrobe. Since I haven't found any maternity hunting clothes (probably for a good reason!) all I was left with were some old ones of Jonathan. But they were big and comfortable even though they weren't the most flattering or fashionable.
Didn't get a deer this go around but there is still more season left! Just will have to wait and see if I'll be able to go after Georgia arrives. Hopefully, by then, I will be able to fit in my own hunting clothes but I still might request the special treatment.
