Georgia Lou Three Months Old


Georgia is three months old. The time sure does fly. She is sitting up with back support now, cooing and chattering all the time, and starting to pull up with her ab muscles.

Wyatt’s First Day of Kindergarten


We went to Wyatt’s open house at his new school last week. He started kindergarten and seems to be adapting well.


When we got home that first afternoon, the first thing he wanted to do was to love on Georgia. That boy is crazy for his sister!

Fourth of July

The Fourth of July was spent with my entire family. Yes, the Cook/Mastrario/Perry/Mathis family merged yet again for a family holiday. We had a great time with grilling, eating, swimming, and of course, fireworks. It was a bittersweet day. The next day was my first day back to work and Georgia’s first day at daycare. I’m so glad it was a perfect day!

July Recap

Wyatt got some spiffy new church clothes and then this happened: Social media vs. real life. He smiled for two seconds for me to snap a "good" picture. And this was two seconds after mama and daddy got here because he wanted breakfast and I wouldn't let him get something walking out the door because he wouldn't eat at 8:00 when I told him to.


He did end up smiling for a picture at church with his Pop.


Georgia’s birth announcement finally made it into the local paper.

Georgia Lou Cook Wiregrass Farmer Announcement July 13, 2016


Miss Priss got her ears pierced. Mama had to go with me for moral support but it actually wasn’t any worse than getting her immunizations done.


Wyatt was also a local star. He caught a huge fish and made it on the front page and the inside of the Wiregrass Farmer.


I used my Staples rewards and scored a ton of school supplies for our supply drive.


We have been visiting the cows and feeding them range pellets to get them used to us. Georgia doesn’t seem impressed with them but she really liked them in person.


We finished harvesting the gourds from the garden. I can’t wait until I can start decorating with them.

Amanda had Wyatt at her house and he bounced his way into the side of the “tramper-lean” as Wy calls it. She had to Snapchat me this cute picture where the filter makes a frowny face.



Georgia and her friend Landree (only one month apart!) got to hang out for a bit too.


One of my nearest and dearest friends Katy made Georgia this adorable onesie. It has her name on the front and her monogram on the bottom in the thinnest, fanciest glitter script!

Dickey Farms

We traveled to the small town of Musella, Georgia to make our very first visit to Dickey Farms. Mrs. Cynde Dickey and I have worked together with the Georgia Agritourism Association and our Georgia Grown Trails. She is the sweetest person and welcomed us with open arms. We had a blast, making sure to load the car to capacity with peaches, peach ice cream, and even a peach slush to cool me down.

When we got back we took one box of peaches and made jam at the canning plant. I loved how it turned out. We peeled and chopped the rest for cobbler and peach ice cream.
