Five On Friday

I am linking up again this week at The Good Life Blog for some Five On Friday fun! There are so many exciting things going on right now. Life is good!

And so it begins....Georgia Grace has mastered pulling herself up. And when I say mastered it I mean she wants to practice it all the time to reach proficiency ha! Notice Owen keeping a watchful eye. I've about decided he does not trust our parenting abilities.

Taking a quick break to pet Owen

And then he decided to become a doggy pillow in case she took a tumble. Best doggy brother of the year award goes to you, O-man!
I know this is one step closer to walking and that scares me to death. Ready or not, momma...

"Georgia was here" HA!
This was Wednesday night at church. We like leaving our mark everywhere we go. 

This may be TMI for some but "It's my party blog and I can cry talk about breastfeeding if I want to" :). Starting next week I am starting the weaning process. I have counted all the breastmilk bricks that I have scattered in deep freezes amongst our families and I should have enough frozen to get her through her first birthday. Unbelievable, I know! I have a supply that is every mother's dream. Several bf'ing moms have recommended gradual weaning to help prevent mastitis and pain so that's what I am going to do. Buh-bye, breastpump!!! To storage you go!

Fun news-the Murphy Hidden Valley Golf Resort residence are getting a pool! After many years of debating they finally caved to my begging suggestion that they had a perfect backyard for a pool and how much they would enjoy it. They will be breaking ground in the next two weeks and it should take two weeks to complete so we will get to enjoy it this summer! I'm over the moon about it. Georgia Grace loves water so this will be so nice being able to let her swim while she is at Gammy and Gran Stan's. I am also reading between the lines when I see this as a ploy to entice my siblings to come home more often ha! We will see if they bite on the bait :) 


Speaking of pools, today Georgia and her baby buddy Abbott had a pool date! They had a big time splashing, reaching over the side to play (and eat-Georgia) in the grass, funneling water in their mouths with toys (Abbott ha!), and reaching for the other's hair/bow. They were so funny. I'm glad Aunt Rachel brought Abbott over to play with us today. The first of many play dates I'm sure!

This weekend will feature a cookout, fishing, and a 4th of July kickoff event. Bring on the food and fellowship! Happy weekend, friends!


  1. Georgia is OH SO cute! Love her southern clothes and bow, precious.

    1. Thanks so much! :-) She has no choice but to be a girly girl ha!

  2. Your daughter is adorable. I'm so jealous of your supply! I found out my daughter had a mil allergy at 4 months so everything I pumped and saved up until then couldn't be used. On top of that I wasn't able to pump a lot so I don't have a stash to use to wean her. She'll be 11 months soon, I know I need to start soon.

    1. Bless your heart, MIL allergy has got to be the pits. That's great that you're still nursing! I am a huge BF advocate. Thanks for finding me ;)

  3. Found you through the 5 on Friday linkup. Nice to "meet you".

    Also jealous of your supply! Mine was lacking. :)

    1. Nice to "meet" you too, Jenny! :-)
      It's been great, I hope this doesn't mean I've drained myself for baby #2 ha!
