Okay, I'll admit that we have slacked a
little lot on the blog as of late.
So here's a little catch up in no particular order (since I really can't remember the order of when everything happened anyway.)
Wanna turn heads? Make waves..or splashes like Molly. That's right Molly's took a dip... actually two dips in the pool in the past couple weeks. She's a brave soul and even tried going completely under.
I recently went to a relief society activity where we talked about gardening. I'm no green thumb. Actually, I've killed every plant I've owned. But I've always liked the idea of pot gardening so I'm starting with herbs. Let's see if I can get the cilantro, basil, and green onions above dirt. It's not looking promising since my friend, who is growing the same herbs, already has sprouts in her garden.
What's stressful, time consuming and hard all over? The GMAT prep course Rob just started. It's keeping him pretty busy, which is giving Molly and me a taste of what grad school is going to be like. Not sure I'm ready to loose my husband to homework just yet.
A couple Saturdays ago Maceys was doing a free pancake breakfast. Since it's not in my nature to pass up something free, and not in Rob's nature to pass up food, we decided to let nature take its course. We showed up 2 hours late and skipped the wait in line. I distinctively remember thinking how fun it was to go as a little family. I love spending time with my two sweeties.
Speaking of food, our ward also threw a BBQ that evening. We traded some S'more bars (remember these) for hamburgers, hot dogs, and some yummy sides.
I did just get my hair cut, but this mess was not from getting my hair done. This is the amount of hair I've been losing just taking a shower. Actually, I've lost more since I can't catch every hair before it's on the way to clog the drain. It's been steady since month 3 postpartum. I'm hoping the hair loss slows down soon. Molly and I are sick of finding Mama's hair between our toes and everywhere else we go. (I hope nobody loses their lunch from this picture; and if you do, sorry in advance.)
Last Saturday, Molly did her first 5K fun
run walk with us and our stake on the Jordan River walkway. And of course there was another free pancake breakfast to follow. And you all know how we feel about free food. Wink wink.
BTW the Jordan River walkway is preddy pretty. We enjoyed seeing all the blooming trees, the yellow-headed birds, the swaying reeds and the frogs croaking. We may or may not have liked the mosquito swarms. I'm looking forward to more
runs walks along this path.
This past weekend Tiffany and Doug came into town to run some errands. Since I can't pass up spending time with my sis, and Rob can't pass up food, we had some delicious food at Lugano's. Molly came with and sat in a high chair for the first time.
This is the way I've been finding Molly just about every time she wakes up. She thinks those balls are so fun and has found a way to get under the bumper to them. She was a little confused (can't you tell?) as to why I thought it was so funny! Who knew yarn balls could be so fun.
Okay, if were talking about getting into things... Molly got to this today. I swear I left for one second and somehow those arms grew longer and she was able to get her hands on this.
The other night you might have found us cuddling on the couch watching this little ditty. I told Rob earlier that day I was in the mood for an old movie and this is what we saw.
Molly begged me to paint her cute little toes. And since I'm a mom now, I have to match my little girl right? It was so much fun to match her I almost went out and bought us matching dresses, bows, and maybe thought about going into Target's portrait studio for a matchy match photo shoot. Oh wait we're not in the '80's any longer. I think we'll just stick with the toes.
Molly is quite the social butterfly. Her favorite people these days are the other little girls in the ward. She can't get enough of them.
Last but not least. Tomorrow we're heading down to Arizona for Rob's sister's wedding. We are so excited for her and of course we love weddings!
