Me: Ezra, do you have to go potty?
Ezra: No, thank you. I'm good. Thanks for asking, though.
Seriously. He then informed me that my hair "looked silly".
Georgia has recently added "bow" (as in hair bow) to her repertoire of words, including Mama, Dada, Ez, and this. She also says "hello," but only when talking on an imaginary phone. What does this say about my daughter?

That's what little girls are made of.
That's right folks, the newest addition to our little clan is definitely GIRL! That means that the 21 out of 32 of you who guessed pink were right. While I was hoping to reuse all of Ezra's baby boy clothes that I have boxed up, I'm sure I'll manage to find the enthusiasm to go shopping for some more pink and purple;);) . It'll be so nice for Georgia to have a sister, and hopefully, eventually Ezra will have a brother too. I love to picture two little girls running around, so close in age (in matching dresses and big ol' head bows, of course).
As an added bonus, another baby (but a girl especially with all their absolutely necessary accessories) is a great excuse to buy a super-nice, luxurious new diaper bag. If you're around me much, than you know my diaper bag is literally attached to my hip. I swear I break out in hives if I have less than three diapers for each kid on me. I've got my eye on this one. We'll see if I can convince Spencer to get it for me for our anniversary in August or maybe as a push prize for the new baby.

After searching on more online used-car websites than I knew existed and calling at least 75 dealers personally (apparently import minivans are more than a little scarce in Oklahoma), we found our match out in Broken Arrow (about an hour and a half drive east). It's a 2003 Honda Odyssey with 90,000 miles on it. We got it for the fabulous price of $9,500 (I'm very proud of Spencer who stuck to his guns and got them down from $10,000). It has an automatic sliding door on both sides, rear air (which our Montero did not-our poor kiddies would end up with red faces and their hair so wet with sweat it'd be plastered to their foreheads), a fold-down option for the third row, and you can slide one of the middle captain's chair to the center, so that you can have the aisle on the side or in the center. It's in great condition and looks fabulous, especially considering it's five years old. Overall, we're quite pleased with our recent purchase. WooHoo for family-friendly features!

(Drum Roll, please)
My leg hair now grows much slower than usual, along with being finer and lighter. WooHoo! Bring on the bi-monthly shaves!
Feeling the baby move regularly is kinda nice too. Also, I must officially "look" pregnant because even strangers are mentioning it. It's always fun when you don't just look fat.

Georgia attempting to open her first birthday present (I love how the gift bag is bigger than her:)
Georgia admiring Grandma's handiwork (note the Skittles clutched in her sweaty little hand. She wouldn't let go of them for the rest of the present-opening).
Georgia enjoying said Skittles.
The cupcake flower I made for her birthday... I know, it's nothing to write home about, but I was please at how well it turned out.
The Birthday Girl enjoying her cake. She wasn't so sure about it when she found out she had to get her fingers dirty, but wild horses couldn't hold her back once she tasted the frosting.
Happy Birthday Miss Georgia Marie!
