fat rolls, sucking fingers and rice cereal !

Violet has just been growing by the day !! She is getting so big ( as you can see by the ROLLS on her body) and just beaming with JOY! She is the happiest and sweetest thing. She had her 4 month check up this week- weighing in at 16 pounds ! She is already wearing 6-9 month clothes!!! Dr Huss wanted us to go ahead and introduce rice cereal at least one time a day for iron and vitamin D since breast milk is deficient in that - and VIOLET LOVES IT ... she just licks those lips! haha! She can also roll from tummy to back ... and holds her head up really well too. Time is flying... and I just want to hold on to every second. I can't believe Georgia is about to be 3 !!?? I am lovin' on these babies and cherishing every CRAZY part of the day... they just won't be little forever. Ok - here are a few sweet pics.. and back I go to folding laundry while they are both asleep!!
Looks like someone sucks their fingers like Sister!!!??

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year !!

Wow, December flew by and I can't believe it's 2011 !! We had a wonderful Christmas with family in Ringgold, GA - this was the first year that Georgia really understood Christmas ( well... sort of !? haha!) She understood presents for sure but not the real meaning of Christmas! I look forward to the time when she can really listen and understand that Christ was born to die ... for HER! The Christmas season is always so packed with things to do and places to go... it seemed to move way to fast ! Another awesome part of December was ALL THE SNOW we got here in Nashville... a few times during the month it was snow and ice AND then a WHITE CHRISTMAS! ( we also had a white Christmas in Georgia so we were really excited!) Here are some pics from festivals, snow days and Christmas . We are so grateful for the birth of Violet Joy in 2010 and we are ready to see all the GOOD THINGS God has planned for us in 2011! Bring it on !!
