Clever Container

I am officially announcing that I am a new consultant for Clever Container.  It is a very clever company that specializes in organizational items for your house, car, and life.  
 Look at all the amazing stuff you receive when you become a consultant.  It felt like Christmas in the G house, and let me tell you...organization is something the G house needs.  Just an FYI, the baby was not part of the package.
 But Baby G is enjoying all of our new stuff.
 From file boxes, shoe storage, shelf dividers, and much much more.
 Baby G liked showing off the couponizer.  He is all about saving $$$.
 And the bag he is sitting in is actually a handy bag to have in the trunk of your car to store your groceries in for the trip home from the grocery store.  Or, of course, you could use it as a baby carrier as I am doing here.
 Mmmm...and apparently the belt hanger is very tasty as well as a great organizational item.
 Yes.....very tasty.
Already becoming a consultant has been a fun experience.  I suggest you go to www.clevercontainer.com to see all of their other wonderful items.  And if you are up for it you can contact me for any further information on purchasing products, hosting a party, or becoming a consultant.  Baby G looks forward to hearing from you.

Try Try Again

Baby G has been trying and trying to pull himself up.  He can do it if he has a little help.  Here is a video of him the other day pulling up but he was sitting on my leg so I don't know if that counts.

But today he was trying to pull up all by himself on the coffee table.  Unfortunately, he didn't quite accomplish his goal and just so you know.... he only cried for about 3 seconds after the taping of this video.

Messy Eater

On this particular day Baby G decided to smear his peas and carrots all over his face.  He thought it was hilarious...and actually Mr. G and I did too.  Plus he looked super cute.

Basketball Jones

 Baby G is proud to announce that he has learned how to dribble a basketball.
 Baby G absolutely loves his little basketball and he especially loves dribbling it.  Check it out for yourself....

Not bad for a 7 month old.
I'm sure it's no surprise to you to see that Baby G also enjoys eating the basketball.

Computer Savvy

There is a baby website that has a game called peek-a-boo and anytime the baby pushes a letter on the keyboard an object pops up and says "Peek-a-boo."  
 Baby G absolutely loved the game.  I couldn't pull the kid away from it.
 He would giggle and cackle like crazy.
I sat him on the floor and he even stood up so he could continue playing.  I wonder if this means Baby G is going to be a computer geek someday.  Or maybe it just means he loves to play peek-a-boo.

Blessed

"Behold, children are a heritage from the LORD, the fruit of the womb a reward.  Like arrows in the hand of a warrior are the children of one's youth.  Blessed is the man who fills his quiver with them!  He shall not be put to shame when he speaks with his enemies in the gate."

Psalm 127:3-5

Phone Pictures

 For the last 7 months I have been taking pictures of Baby G on my phone and I love going back through my pictures to see how much Baby G has changed.  I enjoy it so much that I thought you might too.  Because it was a phone camera the pictures aren't of the highest quality but they bring back a lot of wonderful memories for me.
