Brooke's First Haircut

This afternoon my mother-in-law and I took Brooke to get her first haircut! I have been meaning to do it for awhile now, just to even it out and trim it up, and I am glad I finally went. It was like the last step for turning into a little girl and getting out of that toddler stage.

Before: Look at all those crazy curls!

She was a little angel while the lady cut her hair.

After, a cute little summer bob.

Curls all over the floor. Don't worry, we saved a few.

Mommy and Brooke!

Happy Easter!

We had a great Easter Sunday. The morning started with an Easter egg hunt in our house when Brooke woke up. She found all 15 eggs in about 2 minutes. We attended church in the morning and it was great to fellowship with our congregation that He is RISEN and we are forgiven. We spent most of the afternoon at Dustin's grandma's house for lunch and an egg hunt. The rest of the evening was spent at Dustin's parents house. Here are a few pictures from the day!

Molly was getting into her basket...

The Easter bunny at GiGis. We take a picture with it every year.

Hunting for eggs outside

She put a ball in her dress and walked around like this.

Molly was content on Papa's shoulders.

Easter pinata!

LOVE for the bunny.

Happy 10 Months Molly!

What a perfect way to celebrate my 400th post! Feel free to take a field trip back to my first ever post, my how things have changed.

Molly turned 10 months old on Friday and the pictures were a disaster, mainly because Molly had a cold and was miserable. You can even see it in her little red eyes. I planned to redo her pictures but wouldn't you know, she is still sick and passed it along to Brooke and I.

First I would like to share a video of a few of her tricks.

I cannot believe she is saying words! I know it isn't uncommon for babies to talk this early but Brooke didn't really utter much until she was about 13 months old, and even then it was just "dog". Molly will watch our mouths and try to repeat much of what we say to her.

See her poor little sad face?

Molly crawls at super speed now and is into everything. If you were to stop by my house unannounced you would probably ask if I had been a] ransacked by a burglar, b] a mini-tornado went through my family room. But if you know what's good for you, you won't say anything! She pulls up on almost anything but isn't taking steps yet. She hasn't even tried to stand on her own yet but I am sure she could. We'll have to get Brooke's push toy out of storage to see if she is interested.

Molly still has a major aversion to most foods, although she is getting braver in sampling them. The only night we got her to try some small pieces of chicken. The big thing is she feels like she needs to feed herself. Don't even think about trying to spoon feed her!

I haven't had a chance to measure or weigh her yet but I know that she is much taller than Brooke was at this age, but also skinnier. Oh my opposite babies.

I am working on an updated banner for the blog so hopefully you'll be seeing that in a few days!

Remember Me?

Yeah, me. My name is Jessica. I have two little girls and usually update a couple times a week. Well, I'm back. I'm not sure where I went, but I am back and here to blog. Things have been a whirlwind around here. Having two under two can be challenging on the best days, but it has been extra rough lately. With Molly crawling all over the place and Brooke hitting her "terrible two" stage, I barely have time to wash a dish in the sink before one of them is crying or they are in some sort of hair pulling fight. I thought I had until the teenage years for this!

Here are some picture updates. Tomorrow will be post number 400, which will be Molly's 10 Month update!
