What a great girl. My girls are really working on knowing what their jobs are and getting in and getting them done. Molly may have her own way of doing things (like putting it all on the counter and then putting it all away, but hey it gets done! Way to go Mo Money! Sure love you!

This was Stella's art work she left on the wall at the Dr. office! Did I mention that this was done with dry erase crayons? Nice. I turned my head to watch Molly walk to the bathroom. When I turned back that is part of what I found! AWESOME!
This is what she did later.... I started to wash it off before I took the pictures. Both of her arms were covered from the bottom of her sleeve to the tips of her fingers! This was done with dry erase markers. She told Molly that these were her "Tattoos"! Really? Oh boy! Kris and I spent Kris' lunch break looking up "Painful tattoos" on YouTube! I think we did a first rate job at freaked them both out!
The end of a very long day!
she had a few good quotes for today.
After scrubbing her arms almost raw trying to get off ALL of her artwork while she showered we got her out and put on her pink jammies and she said...
"I love these jammies, they are so warm... and I never want to get a tattoo."
Later that night she had been asleep for about 2 hours. She got up. While trying to get her back to bed she said
Stella: "But I can't see my room."
Me: "It's in the same place it's always been"
I know right? how funny am I?

So while commiserating on the phone with a friend today about how hard our jobs as moms are and you never know if your doing it right she made reference to this article and I had her email it to me. It's a good reminder to me and I LOVE it! It's real and I can totally relate. I'm posting it here so that I can read it over and over and and know I'm not the only one that feels this way!
K tell me this picture doesn't look like a move out of that 80's music video? I don't even know what one it is, but the one where she is on the chair and pulls the cord and the water comes poring down! She had been doing this all day! So funny! I just kept thinking of that video.
Happy Birthday to me!

How much do I love this baby? She is so great! Really she is absolutely perfect in every way!
She is almost 7 months and I keep telling people she is 6 months, she is, but I just have such a hard time thinking that this is all moving so fast.
Here we are trying solids on for size. I have tried a little on and off for the past month, but she has not really been interested in it at all. I have not pushed it. Thinking that was a milestone that we could dodge for a while. But I think we are to the point I really need to get her eating solids! Today was the beginning of our new routine! Wow! I wish these moments would slow down a bit.

This New years eve was spent at my brother and his wife's house! They were so nice to let us all come over hang out and provide me with a whole try of Costco salted caramels! (Really I think I ate the whole thing, so good and every lb I gained was totally worth it;) They had the most darling set up, Sierra did such a great job on making us all feel special with the set up and all of the fun stuff they did! She is a great entertainer! I am the lamest person ever and realized I had left my camera at home when we were almost there... BOO! Sierra sent us a cute thank you note with this pic of Nora so I thought I would call this good for New Years Eve! Thanks for the photo shoot Sierra! I also stole this pic off her blog so you could see the cute set up she had going! So fun, delicious and beautiful! It was the perfect way to ring in the new year. So here were highlights of the evening. We ate like I said my favorite hat to be the salted caramels, but everything was amazing! We played games, chatted, my kids tortured their dog Elenore, Stella pulled the plug on the countdown (Cam was way nice about it and had it up and going for the count down) And then the new year was rung in by fun horns, poppers and confetti that Sierra had gotten! It was so much fun for all of us! Thanks for a great party!
