The 15th week of Jorgia's life was a little challenging. Trev was out of town hunting starting on Wednesday night. We braved it at home by ourselves one night -- other than lack of sleep -- things were fine. Mom was coming to stay with us Thursday night, and thank goodness she did! I came down with the stomach bug with a vengeance! YUCK! That thing is going rampant through Hope. I have heard of a ton of people that have had it recently. No fun, no fun at all. Fortunately, it was short-lived. The next day was pretty much a blah, do nothing day. Saturday, I was determined to get THE picture for the Christmas card. The photo session that day convinced me that a) I'm not a photographer, and b) I need to go to a photographer next time!! We were able to get a few decent shots -- the ones I included on here were before Miss Jorgia had eaten -- she didn't have too many smiles!
Another milestone was met this week -- Jorgia rolled over from her back to her belly!! She has only done this once that we know of, but Trev and I both witnessed it! She is getting so strong, and loves to stand up while supported. She will be walking before we know it!!
Darby Kate is a spicy little thing -- I'm starting with the spice part because as I am typing this she is screaming her head off throwing a temper tantrum with "Miss". This age is very challenging -- the discipline part is especially difficult. I have mixed emotions about spankings. Trevor is convinced they work. I don't see what good it does to do something like spank after a child has acted up -- especially if they have just hit someone. They hit someone so you "hit" them back -- what is that teaching? Also, they say not to do it when you're angry, which is typically right when the incident has happened; but yet you are suppose to the address the situation ASAP. SO confusing and conflicting. What to do, what to do. I am definitely not the perfect parent. Far from it. I have so much to learn and improve on. My patience wears thin and I react in ways I shouldn't. I hope and pray that she ends up sweet and kind. But, if her behavior now is any indication............we might be in trouble!! :)
Gotta go for now -- situation is OOC (out of control) with Miss Darbs -- say a prayer for ALL of us!!
Jorgia had had enough for the moment -- feed me mama!!
