We made an impromptu visit to the farm today. All Molly wanted to ride her horse Skip. But once she saw she could ride the cow, Skip the horse was forgotten.
Molly says (in her broken words, grunts & whining) “No Mom! I’m not leaving. I want to ride the cow again and again. Actually mom, I want to stay right here forever!” Then I say, “icecream? Molly”.
Brian is gone from the night so we are having a girls night in. We ate Thai curry and spring rolls for dinner (the curry/spring rolls weren’t a hit with Molly so she had a big bowl of Berry Berry Kicks cereal). Then we watched (1/4) the Disney movie Brave. Oh that red hair. Then it was time for bed. Kate (I) had an amazing night sleep last night for the first time (pretty much) in 6 months. Let’s hope tonight is just as great. She beat Molly to sleep tonight.
Talk about Disney princess eyes.
Kate is 6 months old! She loves this bouncer, her Sophie the giraffe and playing peekaboo with Molly. She can roll across the room, arch herself out of any seat and cries if I walk out of the room without her. Next up rice cereal.
Brian wanted some Kongo bars and Molly pleaded to help. A quick pan of treats turned my kitchen into a flour mess. But I did have a cute helper.
Last Sunday Molly tried to take her friends scooter and she actually took off with it down the sidewalk with no intention on coming back. So I bought her one and a helmet. She is in heaven and is quite good at riding it. Look how big she looks!
We hit the open house last night. My always favorite is seeing the upholstery throughout.
This was a less glamorous activity we did this past Saturday. We asked people to donate items that they would normally give to the DI and then we advertised around the neighborhood about a yard sale where everything was free. I found some treasures for me and the girls and so did a lot of other people. This activity was a lot of work collecting, setting up, taking down the “treasures” on tables. But I think people found some great things. I know Molly did. And we got rid of most the items.
Before church pictures Kate is sitting up on her own and rolling over. She is between 5 and 6 months old. Her sleeping at night is getting better because she rolls into her tummy as soon as I put her down- which is where she likes to be. I think I remember seeing a picture of Lisa when she was a baby with this same look on her face.
This is the face Molly does when you ask her to look at the camera and say cheese. I think Aunt Lisa taught her this look.
I love these girls.
I just thought I’d share some pictures from today while Molly is in timeout for pulling Kate’s hair and hitting her in the face. 😡
