Molly turned 10 months on Christmas day so I'm understandably (I think) a few days late on her post. Usually I don't include the day of in her month recap but I will include only this tidbit. On Christmas day, Molly began to walk on her own, reliably.

For the week leading up to it, she's been taking 2-3 steps now and then. For a few weeks she's been standing on her own and waving her hands around or walking while holding on to furniture and walls.
No hands!

When we took Bobby trick or treating we brought Molly along in
Bobby's old turtle costume. People actually gave Bobby extra candy for
his sister. BABIES DON'T EAT CANDY! So I ate it.

I like turtles

Choosing a pumpkin.

My pumpkin after falling down and smashing it's skull open.

Holloween
was a success! Bobby was dress as a lion and roared at everyone who
opened their door to him. We made down one side of our street, so about
15-20 houses before he had to go home to use the bathroom. After that,
he enjoyed handing out the candy.

Lion vs Turtle

Bobby's
pretending has gotten to the level of... untruths, for the sake of a
good story. This usually involves being the victim of some brutality at
the hands of one of his friends. We have ways of knowing when he's not
telling the truth. Ways that we may still employ if he ever reads this
so I'm not listing them here.

Making a Duplo Giant

Above is the giant from Jack and the Beanstalk. The shirt is original 80's and says "Anthony" on the back. He loves it.

We've
started having fires in the evenings and Bobby uses his 'big strong
muscles' to carry the log 3 feet over to the fire place. He's very
valuable to us because we are very lazy.
Also you know what he loves? Popcorn. And if you shake chemically created pickle flavour all over it? HOLY SMOKES!

Bobby
is super into Brent right now. Only Brent is allowed to do bedtime. If I
walk into the room he goes "Get out! Get out!"If Brent goes out to run
an errand without running it by Bobby, the whole time he is gone Bobby
wails "I WANT MY DADDY!!!!" through tears. It's so awesome for me. I
mean, the tables used to be turned when he was a baby and little toddler
so it's nice that things are evening out.

My guys - 6:30 pm

Bobby was playing in another room and just walked up to Brent on the
couch and lay next to him. Within 10 minutes they were both asleep. It
was 6:30 pm.

A cousin had her borthday party at a huge indoor
playground. We had never been before and I was afraid because I heard it
was insane. It IS insane but it was also a blast. We are going back for
another birthday party this weekend and Bobby will Lose His Mind.

At the indoor playground aka kid crack

On this day:

In 2010 - "Tea Time with Tyrone"
In 2009 - "plays hide and seek with his penis"
In 2008 - "Just pretend I’m there ok?"
In 2007 - "MY BOOTS LEAVE SNOWFLAKE SHAPED FOOTPRINTS!"
In 2006 - "the difference between good and bad fats"
In 2005 - "Cabbage Rolls"

Ears make everything better

The
biggest news is the crawling. It's not scooting or army crawling. It's
really full blown crawling! In addition to this, she pulls herself up
onto things and walks along them and will walk when holding someone's
hands. She once stood on her own for a full 10 seconds before crash
landing.

Happy Laundry Day


The big news this month is that Molly has been eating food. She is a GOOD eater, you can tell by her thighs.

Mean Goalie

Bobby is out of the summer thing and into the fall thing this month.
He’s noticed that some leaves are changing colours. To him this means
“the trees are turning into Naple Trees and fall is coming”. There is no
correcting him.

As you may be aware, I attend the Orleans Farmers’ Market every week unless I’m out of town. Only recently did I discover that there is a weekly draw to win a bunch of free goods from the vendors and I won on my second try! (find out what I won)

What a muffin!


So I am now halfway through this maternity leave thing. Molly sure is growing up!

She now sits up and plays with some toys, however, she's wobbly so she sometimes crashes. The fun thing is she doesn't mind!

Besties


Bobby spent half of the last month at home with me and the other half in daycare. I would like to say that I kept up the awesome vacation momentum but I didn't. It's a LOT of work. It would be a lot easier without having to take Molly's 4 naps a day into consideration.

yum! If you look back to the post about Bobby, Molly was there for everything. If she was participating or caring about it is to be debated. There have been a lot of changes for her to deal with, Bobby being home from daycare being the most significant. How can she be expected to nap when there's someone else around entertaining her all day? And traveling, although fun, is also exhausting. Snuggles with Siblings Unlike Bobby who clung to me for dear life as a Baby, Molly loves swimming. We've been in several times and although we have a thing for her to float in, she prefers being held so more of her body is immersed and she can splash around. It really tires her out. After-swim nap I love these shorts. There is no other story behind this photo. I love these shorts! Molly's hair changes so much throughout the day. Tight curls, super straight, Kramer... we see it all. Bright She's finally learned to roll over and it be a happy thing instead of a cause for a major freakout. Just today she started rolling back again as well however that part usually involves smacking her head on the floor. First Happy Rollover As always, her favorite person in the whole world is Bobby and most times they are together, this is what is happening:

On this day: In 2008 - "10 pm last night" In 2007 - "This coming from the woman whose eyebrows are tattooed to her face." In 2006 - "The raspberries are now the property of several spiders." In 2005 - “but slow…because that’s how you get to know a woman” EDIT this looks crazy because livejournal isn't working from my computer and I've posted this from my phone and don't have full functionality. I'll fix it as soon as I can.
