Taking Her Turn As "The Favorite"

Okay I feel kinda bad, because I realized it's been a while since I featured little Georgia in a post.  It's not because I don't care about her as much or she doesn't do things to write about.  In fact if anything, she does or says things on a daily basis that are too adorable for words and, if I'm being honest, she's my favorite right now. Wait! Let me explain, before you deem me a terrible mother.  I love all three of my girls equally.  I really do.  I would never be able to choose one over another a la Sophie's Choice.  HOWEVER, there are times where I may LIKE one more than the others.  This is constantly changing according to the day, week, what's going on with them, what's going on with me, how old they are, etc.  There are times when I've liked each of them a bit better than the other, but lately Georgia has been in the lead.

It's mostly her age.  This is my favorite age. It was for the other two as well.  They are a  more self sufficient than a baby you have to do everything for, yet they are still baby like.  It's also the age, where they aren't  talking back and when they say silly things.  Sure they may have a temper tantrum, but you're quicker to forgive it.  Partially because they still don't quite understand everything yet.  Most of the time Georgia is her worst when her sisters are around.  When she's alone with me she is a peach.  A very sweet, Georgia peach.  (Sorry, had to.) We went to Target yesterday, while her sisters were in school, and she sat in the back of the shopping cart, munching on popcorn as I shopped for almost an hour.  I barely heard a peep out of her.

She is always saying things that are so cute and come from nowhere.  Her new favorite phrase is "is you say so!"  She hardly uses is in the right context, but she loves to say it to me.  I laugh every time.  She loves to sing. I hear her when she's alone singing songs she's learned from her class.  Then there is the funny thing she does after she's performed or gotten a big laugh for something she said.  I won't tell you what it is, because she does it at the end of the video I posted here.  I have no idea where she even learned that.  She is also very lovey, which is more her personality and not really her age.  Sometimes I will be sitting on the couch or doing the dishes and she'll walk up to me, kiss my leg and say,

"I wuv you mommy."

She does that to Andy to.  She'll randomly kiss his arm or a finger.   Two days ago, our friend Jamie was here visiting from Boston.  Toward the end of her visit, Georgia walked over to her and kissed her leg.  I thought Jamie was going to melt into a puddle right there on the floor.  It is really does take you by surprise and melt your heart when she does it.

Plus she's just so damn cute right now!  Her smiles and this one little look she gives me, which I can't even explain, just kill me.   This morning when I got her up I kept telling her I was going to eat her up with a spoon.  I say this often and usually she responds with

"Nooo! I not want you to eat me up!"

But today she told me,

"Go get a poon mommy!"

See!  It's things like that.  Put all that together and it's easy to see why I like her just a teensy bit better than the other two right now.  Especially, when I'm having to fight Lana on just about everything this week, and Sonya and I seemed to have a progressed our relationship to a state I wasn't expecting until she was a teenager.  Already I know nothing.  At least as far as she's concerned.  Don't get me wrong, Georgia has her moments and even her days when she's being the big pain in the ass.  Usually Sonya or Lana is being better at that point, moving them to a more favorite position.  But GG is just the one who seems to be the easiest, cutest, and most lovable these days.  Like I said I LOVE them all the same, but I'm sure all you parents out there know what I'm talking about.  Sometimes we just don't LIKE them all the same.  I would have never understood this four years ago, but now, now it makes perfect sense and you know what?  It's completely OK.

I mean how could I not favor all this cuteness right now??

*For whatever reason, blogger would not let me upload my video.  If you go to youtube here you can view the video.  Enjoy!

How come mine talks back already and yours doesn't??
GG sure is cute - dank you dank you!

Megan-yours talks back already because she's the oldest. I think Sonya may have started doing that at a younger age too.
