Meet Georgia Riley Macklem... My beautiful daughter was welcomed into the world February 17,2010 at 9:25 am weighing in at 7.10 lbs. It's hard to believe that she is a month old tomorrow, I guess the saying "time flies" was first said by a mom.
It's been a bit of a challenge to blog and be a new mom but I promised I would try to at least once a week (something I haven't held up to).
I'm going to do my best to keep to my word and because I spend almost all of my time with Georgia, she will be the next features of my blog.. I'm going to blog a bit more about motherhood until I get my projects going.
Motherhood has been amazing so far..I think Amazing is my favorite word since Georgia came. She is a true blessing..so calm, relaxed and happy. She eats and sleeps a ton but when she is awake(which is more and more everyday) she is so calm and focused. Georgia will stare at pretty much everything around and take it in with curiosity. She has got to be one of the loudest sleepers I have ever met.. She has so many noises grunts and groans the are followed by a few head tosses..not sure what side she wants to sleep on. It is so funny and amusing to watch during awake hours but when your trying to sleep it can be a bit tough..So she is in her crib now..which was a hard transition..but best for the household.
Here are some pictures of her first few weeks..

A little smile..or gas..but I like to think they are all smiles :)

I finally got a photo with her a few weeks later.. it's hard trying to get a good shot holding a baby..
