Yeah, that's the whole outfit. Bloomers. I am such a disgrace to SEC moms.
(Don't worry, I didn't actually just let her hang out all nakey and cold like that for the whole game. Just for a picture. She wore regular non-festive clothes (like me, evidently) most of the time.)
Add 'appropriate UGA game day wardrobe' to the long list of things I still need to acquire. But then again, maybe it was this very outfit that gave the Dawgs the good luck they needed to win? Now maybe I'm obligated to have her wear this 'outfit' for the rest of the games to make sure that we keep winning? Football superstition problems are real here, folks.
OH, and just to keep things really real- shortly after this picture was taken she had a really impressive Diaper Situation and her Super Amateur Parents managed to smear it onto the white, freshly ironed (by my mom, not me, obviously) bloomers while trying to change the diaper and clean things up...FAIL. Oh well. One day we'll get better, surely.
On Sunday afternoon we traveled to deeeeep South Georgia to visit my sister and brother-in-law. They wanted to meet Millie before their own baby joins us later this month, but Sarah is forbidden to travel anymore, so...a road trip with my parents it was. We had lots of fun, ate tons of ridiculously good food, and took exactly ONE picture in the 30 hours we were there:
Aww...Millie's hanging out with (or on, as the case may be) her cousin Laney! And Sarah's 36 weeks, in case you are curious.
Sarah and Mark had a list of Parenting Tutorials they wanted us to demonstrate while we were there. Millie was mostly a good sport, so we managed to teach and demonstrate the basics on swaddling (using both velcro swaddles AND muslin blankets...I know, advanced stuff!), diapering (and how NOT to change a dirty diaper, which is my specialty), proper car seat/stroller usage, bathing (this actually IS my specialty), bottle cleaning, and several lively discussions on things like scheduling/routines and how to tell why babies are crying. We also broke in all of Sarah's baby and nursery things- Camilla approved of everything. And she was also a little jealous of how complete and put-together Laney's nursery is. Or maybe that's just me. I guess I forgot that most people get to have all of their showers and get everything done/prepared/set up before their babies actually arrive. That's not how we're rolling at our house just yet. Oh well. It'll happen.
Luckily we made it back home to my parents' house Monday in time for Bachelor in Paradise. AND THEN IT STARTED STORMING AND DIRECTV LOST ITS SIGNAL AND I MISSED THE FIRST 20 MINUTES ANYWAY. Not bitter at all. But then the signal came back and Twitter kept me up to date on what I missed, so all is well. Also, I have some really deep thoughts regarding BiP- 'deep thoughts' being a super subjective thing at the moment. But that seems like another topic for another day.
We had another super-squished drive back to Athens yesterday, but now we're home and staying put for a few days, so that'll be nice. I have some little projects around the house I want to work on, books to read, and a sweet baby to cuddle...so laying low at home sounds 100% great right now.
Millie turned four weeks old yesterday!! On the one hand, I can barely believe we've known her for a whole month...but on the other hand, I can't even remember what my life was like before her. It's weird. Monday night she started imitating me when I would stick my tongue out. I thought it was the best thing ever and clear evidence that she is the smartest human on the entire planet. And then yesterday I get the 'your baby is four weeks old!' email from BabyCenter and they're like "your baby might start imitating you when you stick your tongue out!"...and they stole all the glory out of my little prodigy's achievement. Oh well. It was still the most adorable thing I've ever seen. She also makes tons of noises that sound like dolphin communication sounds, especially when she's mad (reasons she gets mad: the bottle is empty, I'm putting a shirt on her, or we're fastening a clean diaper. Truly we are villains...). We think she's tattling on us about how mean we are to her dolphin friends. She clearly has lots of dolphin friends. And a lot to say to them. It's adorable.
Have a great week!!...is it okay to say that on a Wednesday?? Ha. Better late than never, I guess.
