Two Months

Two Months
For comparison purposes...

One Month

Georgie weighs in at just over 12 pounds. Maybe it was growing pains making him so fussy?!?

What Do You Call Him?

Rather than 'ask what is his name', they ask 'what do you call him'. Funny!

Blogging Kick

I'm on a blogging kick. Here are a few recent pictures of Georgie...

Cowboy George

I know something...

My what big eyes you have!

I am hesitant to say this...George is settling down. He is sleeping longer and having periods of contentment. At times when he cries I can talk to him and he will smile while crying. We hosted his playgroup today and he was only awake for the last 10 minutes of it. For the first time he took a nap on his own for over two hours! Tonight I was going to hold him to sleep but he would not give it up. I put him down and have not heard a peep in 3 hours! Woo hoo! For the past week he has consistently slept for 6 hours at night. So I need to sign off and sleep myself...

Worded Wednesday

The Nestle version of Nutella in Azerbaijan.
Wonder if the name would impact sales in the west?

Are You Ready For Some Football?

Caroline's first soccer game.

Surprisingly football or soccer is a boy sport here. We found an American league for the girls. Their first day was intense. We took a taxi to the fields. Side note: Caroline rode in a car almost everyday for her first five years. Now she rides on a car once or twice a month and feels sick each time. All this to say: she was sick as we pulled into the parking lot. She drank cran-blueberry juice for breakfast. She was amazed because she'd never seen pink puke. The driver's second language was English. He kept looking at me. What could I do about it? I used all but one wipe to clean her up. Georgie would need to hold it until we returned home.

The rest of the morning was without drama. The girls were assigned their teams. They had a clinic with real Spurs. It was impossible for me as the solo parent to be on two fields at once, all the while wearing George. I managed to be in the right place during injuries and water breaks. We capped off our American morning with lunch at McDonald's. I'm still surprised I managed have them at the fields on time on my own after staying up too late doing tax work. Soccer Saturdays will be a breeze with two parents. The girls will have a good season!

School is Back In

We are starting our second full week of school. Things are busy but it suits us. Georgie is along for the ride - while I am wearing him. The girls are up and ready to go every morning. Mary Kate is now in the upper school. She is in a house and has a big sister. Caroline thought year 1 would be all work and no play, but they still have "golden" time.
