Kids are funny

I remember saying how much I wanted Molly to talk and communicate with me and now I can't get her to stop! The kid loves to chat... just like her mother, huh? Here are a couple things she said the other day that made me crack up!

-Blake laid down with Molly to help her fall asleep. He was about to get up because Molly's eyes had been closed quite a while when he let out a toot. A few seconds passed and Molly started making sniffing noises. Then out of her sleep she said, "I smell something..." Blake was busted.

-We were all in the car exploring Grapevine for fun photography spots and were trying to find Rockledge Park. We looked it up on our phones and were following directions but still couldn't find it after driving over a half hour. I could tell Blake was really starting to get frustrated. After abandoning the directions and going on a hunch we turned on to an obvious street that we hadn't tried previously. Clear as daylight was a sign for Rockledge Park. By this time the park had already closed. Blake slammed his hands on the steering wheel and exclaimed, "You've got to be freakin' kidding me!!!" I was a little nervous that Molly was going to cry because Blake rarely yells. Instead she exploded with laughter from the backseat and said, "Daddy is a silly MONKEY!" over and over. I couldn't hold it in and started laughing. Before we knew it we were all laughing in the car over Blake's serious anger explosion.

Two year olds are hard, but boy are they hilarious!

Pumpkin Patch

We just got back from the Pumpkin Patch with Grandma and Grandpop Brady. Bit (Molly calls Brett, Bit) came too which was tons of fun! We picked out two pumpkins--a big one for Mommy and Daddy and a baby pumpkin for Molly. We had a great time playing on all the attractions, but Molly's two favorite things were the popcorn and haystack house. I posted a lot of pictures... grandparents love pictures.

Chasing Birdies

My friend Keri owns a company called "Chasing Birdies". She makes the cutest clothes. In exchange for clothes, I did a photography session for her. I think I came out with the best deal!! Here are some fun pics of Molly.

Let's Play Ball!

Molly is a girl with many talents and Blake and I are just trying to keep up. Nana and Pocket bought her a whiffle ball bat and ball and she has become very interested in batting. I'm surprised to say that for a two year-old, this girl has got some eye-hand coordination. So we all went to the park today to play ball, and of course, throw rope for the dog. Zoe would die if she knew we went to the park without her! I reluctantly included a pic of me and the dog for all of you who wanted to see my big belly... yes, I'm big and preggers!

It's pretty scary when the ball is coming at your face! Better close your eyes...

Gymnastics Class

Blake and I enrolled Molly in a gymnastics class with her buddy, Kaiya. It is so much fun to see these two tumble around the gym on Mondays! Born only one day apart, it has been hilarious watching them develop into adorable little girls. Their teacher is Miss Diane and she stays very focused on the rambunctious pair. We heard a lot of, "Molly... Kaiya..." and usually followed by, "Please sit down!" or "it's not your turn, yet". Here are some pics of their adventurous Mondays (quality is poor due to the awful lighting).
