Marian is a Big Sister!



That's right. We are expecting a new baby Goodwin next spring!

I've had to stop most extra activities (including most sewing) for now just to concentrate on making sure I'm getting enough to eat to feed three people (Marian is still nursing full time) and getting enough rest. I've also had to start out on the baby food journey with Marian a lot sooner than I had planned - but i think she is plenty old enough, and absolutely *loves* getting to eat her "bites" at mealtimes. So far she eats lots of soft cooked egg yolk, banana, summer and winter squash, blueberries, some green beans and green peas. Planning to try avocado and carrots next. If anyone has suggestions about good baby food recipes or recommendations for a baby food mill, I'm all ears!

She is getting so big! Seven months old already!
 Her personality is really popping - she is such a sweetheart. (most of the time!)

She also loves wearing Dad's hats...

 and taking baths on the porch...



Marian sometimes enjoys going swimming in the creeks, 
but she mostly enjoys playing with the rocks on the bank.

Marian loves to watch animals. She always gets very excited when she sees 'Violet' the cat.


Occasionally she will condescend to play with her toy basket on the floor for a few minutes.

...and of course she loves hanging on Dad's arm. One of her favorite things to do is going around with Dad outside while he is working. She intently watches everything he does.

I take way too many pictures of Marian asleep - but I just can't help it! She so adorably soft and cuddly.

We are so thankful for the new baby on the way! I am so anxious to know whether Marian has a sister or a brother!
Got quite a few posts coming to catch up on what we've been doing the past couple of months.

(If you want to keep up with our little family a bit more frequently in the day-to day, I post quite a bit as 'atlantavictoria'on Instagram.)
