We just wrapped up a day of hanging out with a few friends. MQ and I had a play date with our buddies Milly and Clarabelle earlier today, and MQ just thought she was "big stuff" around those girls (even though she's only 8 months older!). I didn't snap any pictures because Sara and I were too busy talking and watching babies at the same time. I need to get some pictures of these girls together...they are too cute! I can't wait to watch them grow up together.
We then headed home so that we could watch baby Alex (8 weeks) while his mommy and daddy enjoyed a date night at the UofL game. Mary Quin was hilarious. She wasn't quite keen of her momma holding another baby...and some tears were shed when I wouldn't pick her up because I was holding Alex. I got out one of her baby dolls so she could "copy" what I was doing with Alex. It worked. She loved watching every move I made with Alex, and she copied it with her little baby doll. When I bounced Alex, she bounced her baby. When I put Alex on the play mat, she laid her baby doll down right next to Alex. When I talked to Alex, she would talk to her doll. When I put Alex in the bouncy seat, she put her baby doll in the other bouncy seat. When I kissed Alex's head, she'd kiss her baby doll's head. Precious! I think it's time for a baby brother or sister for MQ!!!
Mere and I took Lily shopping last night so that she could spend her birthday money (from December). She was sweet enough to let little sis, Nora, tag along. What a fun night with those girls! We first hit up Hobby Lobby to stock up on some art supplies, then to Panera for a gourmet mac-n-cheese dinner, and we finished up at Old Navy where Lils found some CUTE clothes! We had so much fun throwing clothes all over that dressing room!...and Lily has better fashion taste than any 7 year old I've ever met!
These next few pictures were taken the other day. It's been gorgeous outside these days, so we're trying to take full advantage of the sunshine!
Don't you just love those sweet, strawberry-blonde curls?! I have to admit something...when I met Eric, I thought to myself, "Maybe our kids would have curly hair since he has wavy hair and so do I". Well, here we are married with a child, and God sure did give us a little girl with curls, and we're so very thankful for it! You wouldn't believe how many people ask me if I "curl", "perm", "sponge roll" her hair! She's 1 people!!!....not sure how many 1 year olds have their hair sponge rolled...hopefully not many! Sorry, had to get that out there!
Until next time...
