Philadelphia Freedom!

After this post I will have two more posts until 400. Crazy, isn't it?

Two weekends ago we headed out for a short trip to Philly. My whole family lives there so we go two to three times a year. This time we headed home to meet our new nephew Logan, and for me to attend a baby shower for my best friend from high school.

We got in late Friday night and went non-stop from that point. Saturday we went to Giggleberry Fair in Peddler's Village where I met up with some mom friend's I met online. Brooke basically spent the whole time running around in the mountain.

Afterward we went to the Kid's Castle in Doylestown with my parents, brother and sister-in-law, and two nephews. Brooke had a blast climbing all over this thing. I used to go here when I was a little girl!

My new nephew Logan. So serious....

Sunday we went to church in the morning and then I went to my friend Jess' baby shower. She is due with a little boy in June and I cannot wait to meet the little cutie!

Afterward we headed up to my brother's house for dinner. We went back to my brother's house on Monday as well to take pictures of the boys and just hang out.

We had a great time and we look forward to seeing everyone again this summer!

Happy 9 Months Molly!

Molly turned 9 months on Tuesday [which was spent driving 12 hours in the van from Philly back to Indiana, that blog post is coming soon!] and we had her pediatrician appointment this morning. She is in the 25% for weight at 17lbs 11oz and 75% for height at 28.5 inches. Looks like our girl is going to be tall and skinny! She had a great check-up and all is well.

Molly is crawling all over the place now. She was doing an army crawl for awhile but finally figured out how to add those legs. Now she can boot scoot almost as fast as I walk, at least it seems that way when I put her in the family room and by the time I get out of the bathroom she has already torn apart half of Brooke's room.

She has one tooth. Yepp, just one. She has had it for a couple of weeks now and it doesn't appear that any more are joining it any time soon. Poor girl.

Molly has a mind of her own and will let you know when she isn't happy with you. She will scrunch her nose and yell at you if you have offended her in the past minute or so, and will continue to do this until she feels like forgiving you. It is actually kind of cute.

Dustin and I have decided that she is going to be taking her formula to Kindergarten in her thermos. The girl refuses to eat baby food and thinks puffs and mum mums are the most disgusting things ever. Perhaps she likes finer dining, we'll have to shoot for salmon and steak soon.

Happy 9 Months Molly Moo!

Things I wish I had known...

Here is a random list of things I wish I had known in high school...

1. Tanning is really really bad for you.

2. You will regret your belly button piercing once you become pregnant.

3. Get good grades and apply for scholarships because the less years you spend paying off school loans the happier you will be.

4. Fake nails are full of bacteria and considered tacky in most social circles. Who knew?

See. Random and short.

I haven't blogged in forever! Believe me, I have sat down at my computer to write, I just couldn't seem to form words that would matter to anyone, even me. So what have I been doing instead?

1. Working out. I started the C25K program and finished up Week 2 Day 3 this morning. I am so tired, I have no idea how I am going to do Week 3 but I will find a way. Amazingly enough, working out for 2 weeks straight hasn't even helped me lose a pound.

2. Reading. I have read a ridiculous amount of books in the past couple of weeks. I am up to 26 books total since the beginning of the year. My most recent reads were The Maze Runner and The Scorch Trials which are part of a trilogy. HIGHLY recommend them if you are into YA Sci Fi type books.

3. Writing. Reading motivates me to write, so I have been writing a lot. I have always wanted to publish a book, which probably will not happen with the current state of publishing, but I am at least going to write one. It is actually coming along quite nicely for now, but there is always that revise and rewrite part.

Now that the snow has finally melted off our lawn I plan on doing some pictures with the girls outside, so look forward to those!
