Pulling herself up

I was laying on the couch speed reading the newspaper this afternoon. Georgia was playing on the rug in front of me. She started to crawl towards me. Next thing I knew, these cute little eyes were peaking above the couch seat at me. She had pulled herself up to her knees. I gave her a big smile and said "good girl!" She then pulled her legs up underneath herself and stood! She was so pleased, standing holding on to the couch and started screeching like a wild bird at the top of her lungs. She did this about a dozen times today on two different couches. I can't believe how strong she is getting!

Unfortunately our camera is still broke, so no pictures to share.

A couple more mexico pics

The pics are slowly leading in from Mexico. Here are a couple more...

Another Inch. Another pound.

Georgia had to go to the Dr. on Friday. They were a little worried about a flat spot on her head but all is well. The big news is that she gained another inch and another pound! In just a couple of weeks. She is now 28 inches long and weighs 19lbs 2oz. Must have been that Mexican sun!

Georgia is also getting around quite well. She can easily drag herself from one room to the next and is staring to try and pull herself up on things. She particularly likes to pull books out of the bottom shelves in our living room and her room. We are hectically trying to baby proof the house. Hard thing to do when you have so many home improvement projects going on...

Still waiting for more Mexico pics from the fam... I've included a couple of others I had below.

View of our sitting area and balcony from the bed. The balcony had a jacuzzi tub, a hammock, two lounge chairs, and a table with a couple of chairs. We could have lived out there!

We spent the last week in Mexico for Justin and Dana's wedding. It was great fun. We got to see lots of family, fished, swam with the dolphins, boogie boarded, slid down the slide at our pool, spoke poor Spanish, went to the market, and drank lots of margaritas. Our camera broke, so we didn't get many pictures but lots of promises for more. Here are a few to start with.

The view from our bathroom window. All of the rooms as Brisas Del Mar overlooked the ocean. It was great!

And of course the newlyweds!

Mr. and Mrs. Roberts

Georgia, Brendan and I met up with my good friend Kevin from High School and his lovely new wife Emilia today. Thanks to Facebook I found out he had moved here in June! We had a great lunch and hope to see more of them!

Kevin (with half a smile) and Georgia. Already best friends.

Fun times!
