Georgia Marie and This Is Me Being Fabulous

Sometimes the stars align and I am the mom I always wanted to be. Today was one of those days.


Ezra got to pick the mix (yes, it was from a cake mix, I'm not
entirely perfect), the frosting, the colors we wrote in, and what was written. I even gave in when he insisted we frost the cake right now, hence the pockmarks. I truly am THAT fabulous.

Onto Miss Georgia...

Name & Meaning: Georgia Marie. I adore Georgia's name and always have. It's the most common first name out of my kids, but it was well worth it in my book. Georgia was always my favorite state growing up, despite the fact I've never lived there or even been there (or maybe because I've never lived there ;)-it just always seemed so southern-bellish and refined to me and in my mind, the name always had that same feel to it. As for her middle name, Marie, it's on the very common side, but it's my middle name and my Aunt Janet's middle name and I've always thought it was very we used it. Spencer, in particular, pushed for Marie more than I did, for some reason...I suspect he was just sick of talking about names.

Age: 21 and a half months (1 year, 9 1/2 months for those not used to Mommy-speak)

Nicknames: George, Georgie, Miss Georgia, Georgie Porgie, Middle Little, Georgia Me, Missy Doo, Jorge (pronounced a bit like Horhay), Princess (those last two are Spencer-specific), Spoiled Diva (that last one is me-specific...just kidding...kinda).

Favorite Activities: Playing with cars, reading books, getting into my makeup, putting on necklaces, playing with her best frenemy (see Ezra's post for definition), her cousin Ella, and drinking water out of my contact case.

Favorite Foods: French fries, cake, ketchup (in Georgia's world, it's an entire food group), milk, juice (like Ezra, Georgia also drinks all day long), pancakes, chocolate, and any other kind of candy you can think of.

Least Favorite Foods: Cheese, cottage cheese, chocolate milk (odd girl, I know) and...that's about it. Despite her small size, Georgia actually loves to eat.

Favorite Music: The Backyardigains theme song (she loves to dance around to it), hymns and primary songs, random songs from my blog, and the music on her toy cell phone, which she also thinks is dancing-worthy.

Favorite Toy: Necklaces, toy cell phone, cars, and anything that belongs to me.

Favorite Book: Her puzzle color book and Goodnight Baby. She's also a big fan of Princess Lillifee.

Favorite Item of Clothing: Shoes...really any of them, whether they're hers or not. Hairbows are also a fave.

What Makes Her Happy: Daddy, eating chocolate, hanging out with Auntie Steph, a fabulous makeup brush or great necklace (hmm, maybe she's more like me than I realized...).

What Makes Her Sad: When Daddy goes to work, when she can't have any more candy, when she can't go outside with the boys because it's too cold.

Funny Words or Phrases: "No, I will!" (said with a cute Southern accent), when she calls Scarlett, "Honey" and Ezra, "Ezie," she calls her pull-ups "princess panties," and says "eww, dwoss [gross], icky," usually said after she has an accident (or I try to put a dirty-ish bib on her) and right before she says, " 'nother one," insisting we get her new underpants.

Mmmm, this post was fan.tas.tic!! I smiled from start to finish (and there were giggles throughout). Your cake was super-fun for starters and I loved the personalized frosting. So fun.
Georgia is such a doll. It was funny reading about her even though I get to see her nearly every day (much to both of our enjoyment). She is one of my very favorite people in the whole world. She has such a soft spot in my heart. I love her to pieces. Georgia is such a diva...and I love it...spangly necklaces and all!!
