Cason's Musical

Cason and Molly are going to our church for summer mini camp! It is 3 days a week 3 weeks this summer. 2 of the weeks are Olympic themed but this past week was a music camp. The final day of camp all of the kids aged 3-5 performed the songs that hey had been learning. Cason and his cousin Reid were in the same class so they were right next to each other during the performance. Lets just say there was not as much singing as there was playing. I am not sure that Cason sang much of anything! Oh well, we had a blast watching him and Reid up there!

Yes, this is in the middle of the performance!

Very proud of himself!

15 month old Molly

Molly is 15 months and had her well visit last week.
She weighs 22 pounds and is 30 in. tall.

Molly is starting to say a lot of words! Mama, dada, bubba (although Cason hates that and tells us that is not his name!), dog, bye-bye, hi, uh oh, milk,more and points and asks, "that?". She can imitate what we are saying too.

She can wave hi and bye and blow kisses. She also has been giving us these really cute open mouth kisses! This past week she has mastered the pucker and loves to kiss us! She is also starting to run and thinks that it is hilarious!

Molly still loves doing whatever her brother is doing. She likes to dance, look at books, play outside in the sandbox, take walks, and of course be held!

Her favorite foods are cheese, chicken nuggets, french fries, chips (I know, Mom of the Year), strawberries, grapes, and pineapple.

She is sleeping really good at night! If it is really quiet in the house she will sleep until 9 or 9:30 in the morning. She takes after her mama!

The newest thing about Molly is her temper. I guess she is starting the terrible two's a little early. She has starting throwing these horrible fits where she screams as high and as loud as she can. She also gets mad at us and spits at us and hits us. Pretty much whenever someone does something she doesn't like she spits. It is very embarrassing in public! After talking to her pediatrician we are going to start really short time outs. This should be fun!

Despite Molly's very strong personality she is still really sweet. She gives the best hugs and kisses and loves to cuddle. I love this little girl more than words can say!

Happy Birthday America!

This year we had the chance to participate in my parents neighborhood parade the weekend before the 4th of July. It was SOOO hot but the kids had a blast!         
Molly in her cute patriotic outfit that Aunt Tory gave her! It was a little big so she ended up just wearing the shirt/dress. Next year I bet she can wear it again!

Riding in the parade. Cason loved yelling, "Happy Birthday America". Molly did not like riding in the wagon so I got to carry her the whole way.

There were bounce houses!

Cason and Molly enjoyed eating a blue snow cone

The actual 4th of July was pretty low key. We went shopping, took naps and hung out around home. Sometimes we can see the Rowlett fireworks from our backyard so we told Cason he could stay up to see them. About 9:15 I decided to drive to a parking lot near our house so we could see the fireworks a little bit better. It was just Cason and I because Molly was already asleep but we had a lot of fun. The two of us set in our car and watched the fireworks that were right across the street. It was perfect!

Happy 4th!
