The Sun Always Shines on TV

sheesh...where'd my baby go?

I like how Will is forcing Molly to turn her head. nice big brother.

Molly's too little to be this big. Piper was mothering her and was getting quite frustrated that Molly was too big for her britches.

Molly was rather subdued and Nora was looking dapper in her cute brown and pink duds. Nora fell asleep soon after this.

This was the only shot I could get of Molly, not moving. Piper? fuhget about it...she's a whirling dervish. (there ya go, Beck)

Here are a few pix from our park visit last night...it's hard to get Piper to stay focused on me long enough to get a good shot. and she's such a pretty girl too...all of the pix from this stage of her life will be her zinging by, too busy to pose! Punk. Love you, Miss P. :) You are a beautiful girl. and too smart for your own good! Levi wasn't in any of these because he takes off at this park...so try as I might, it's more impossible to get a pic of him than of Piper.

Nora, on the other hand, is laid back enough for all of us. I want an ounce of it for Molly. Just an ounce. She is changing right before our eyes. She's got this lovely olive-y toned skin and her hair is rich and blonde. Her face is so chubby and baby right now. she has the most kissable, firm cheeks. Her eyes almost look brown. How did you do that, B and Scott? I mean, we could say Scott isn't the dad but ga-dang, she looks like his Mini-Me...so what's the secret? I love that, when walking toward us, Nora was kicking and squealing when she saw Molly. I'm so excited that they have each other (I may take this back someday...) but even in our buggy years, I always dug my sister most. Who needs friends when you have a close one like that? (and we are 5 years apart)...Nora, Molly? you two little squirts are so blessed to have each other. just wanted to remind u both of that.

Molly decided to walk up the stairs all by herself just a bit ago. and since no one was watching her down stairs, why not? It's hard not to panic when I see her little hands come thru the gate...she is so durable though.

As for window girl? I continue to be amazed at Molly's unsinkable-ness. This window shot is the one I wrote of earlier. right after that, she got mad at me because I wouldn't let her go the spiral stairs alone. She is Miss Independent. Cousin Tory refers to her, lovingly, as Chihuahua...because they are active and climby. she's giggling over here right now...Will's working her over and tickling her. Wish I could put that on here...maybe after tomorrow? oooh, gotta figure out how to put video on here. that'd be fun. then you all can get tired with me.

Here are a few good verses that I gleaned from my Bible study this morning in I Corinthians.

I Corinthians 1:18: For the preaching of the cross is to them that perish foolishness; but unto us which are saved it is the power of God.

I Corinthians 1:27: But God hath chosen the foolish things of the world to confound the wise; and God hath chosen the weak things of the world to confound the things which are mighty.

I Cor. 2:4,5: ...And my speech and my preaching was not with enticing words of man's wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power: That your faith should not stand in the wisdom of men, but in the power of God.
I need to get my checkbook balanced...I have been productive while blogging today...kids are doing schoolwork, I'm paying bills and going through papers again. so David, if you read this? I'm busy busy busy while blogging. Happy Tuesday folks!

We had so much fun at the park last night. Piper was zonked out right after her bath-at 9:00! Woo hoo! That's rare for my whirling dervish (thanks for that, by the way). Thanks for the nice walk last night. Thanks to the kiddos for watching P while we walked. They're the best!!xoxo

Scerrrry Stairs.

I'm thankful God loves the foolish.



Brittany said...

Miss Molly is just delicious! It's so amazing how very fast they grow, isn't it? Makes a momma very sad! Of course, you would know well as a mother of a almost 14yr old! Just a few more days... Is he rubbing it in? Any big plans for the big day?

Tory said...

I absolutely love the fact that she is climbing the couch in the window, with her chubby cheeks and pacifier. There is nothing that screams daredevil quite like a pacifier. hahaha...I crack myself up! Anyway, thank you for taking the time to upload those great photos. How fun it is to share.

Hugs, t

B - it was nice hanging out with you, even if we were exercising and sweating, and then straining our necks (me)...good times.

Velvet - mollycake...her new etsy name. her hair is a lot like Sharkey's...

Stickers - what is wrooong with you? a baby of 15 months is showing u up on my scerry stairs...breathe. breathe. I, too, am quite glad that God loves me and my continually foolish ways.

Brittany - good point. having Will at 14 and Molly at 1 is weird. so glad it keeps me in the moment. most of the time. no big plans for the actual day, just some Waterman's farm market...that day or the next, depending on weather. we will have his party this weekend. hugs to ya, friend!

Tory - so true. nothing says "daring" like a Nuk pacifier and fat cheeks. you crack me up too...just so ya know. in less than 12 hours, my uploading of fotos should commence much quicker. yah!!

Love to you all! LY

Tory said...

Yay! Today's the day (the Lord willin' and the creek don't rise) that your whole U-verse will change. hahahaha...Love ya', shortcake!

Mary Zolene said...

Wow...your kids have grown up!!! It seems like just yesterday we were at your wedding..and you haven't changed a bit. I would recognize you and David anywhere. :)

There's no holding Molly back, is there? She grows cuter and cuter each day.

I'm with Nicky though....sceeerrryy stairs!
