the other day in the bath molly looked at my wide eyed, and said..."toots make bubbles" she the proceded to tell everyone she talked to about this new discover for the next 24 hours.

today she we were snuggling in bed, she said, "like that mama" i said 'like what, baby?' to which she replied..."mama hugs!" *swoon* i adore this child!!!

As molly and i were getting ready for our evening stroll i put on a tie dye t-shirt, made by cousin cooper, molly then said she wanted to wear a "sunshine shirt" so she wore tie dye as well....from here on out, tie dye will be known as

Fire Flies!

Molly stayed up late and went out to chase fireflies. She thought it was a hoot, loved the way they lit up...giggling in delight.

French Toast

Molly and I have been cooking together since birth. She loves to help...and has gotten really good. We made french toast for breakfast, and molly did a great job!

Petting Zoo

Daddy and Molly went to the petting zoo...molly saw ducks, chickens, pot bellied pigs, goats and rabbits...then wanted to do the slide!


Molly and I went to the water park the other day, she LOVED it!! This sweet girl has no fear...just like someone else i know.

Father's Day

Molly painted Joe this fantasic picture, she was very proud. We hung it on his office door.


molly loves hats!

Swim season

What better during a heat wave, then the pool! Molly and Annie traveled to the pool in style. Once there Molly had a blast in her floaty, then she got brave and wanted to jump in the pool into my arms from the side. She was loving it, but thought she would explore out of my reach when i put her on the edge of the pool. in a panic i quickly thrust my body out of the pool...with my swim bottoms, um not on my bottom. :/ thankfully, they did not go far, and i was able to grab molly before she tried to jump in the deep end. *sigh* life with a toddler is anything but boring!

Julia Child/Strawberry Shortcake

Molly loves her new chef hat, and wants to wear it everywhere, this was what molly wore to the library. I love that she has such a unique fashion sense.
I can't decide it she looks like a little strawberry shortcake doll or julia child.
