The Two things you would bring to a deserted island...via Survivor or something...and it an't be people...
(but just so are clear...I would bring my hubbie and daughter to the island :))
1. A Lighter - this is my "smart item" -WHY? - Duh... so I can start fires when i need to...
2. My pillow - b/c I'm not much of one to sleep on a flat floor or bed...
Since this was a short and quick post.... but oh so much fun.... I thought I would take a moment to update you on a couple of things...
1. I think I posted a while ago about starting Molly on a new formula...well it didn't go so good so we are back to Similac Advanced...and up to almost 6 oz. every 3 hours.
2. We started rice cerel last week and after 4 attempts...we are still FAILING!! What's the secret? She seems to HATE it! Should I try another flavor? Or just start her on a little banana or veggie?
"Dad...are you watching this? Why don't you tell her to stop?"
Notice, I didn't put my whole body in the pic...
Molly got her daddy a couple of pairs of shorts, a pair of flippy floppies, a couple of polo shirts (which I need to exchange the next time I go to Branson) and a card...
Please excuse my VERY white self...I haven't been outside much this year yet!! OBVIOUSLY!!
"Just chillin' mommy!!" She wasn't sure about it at first, but then she started splashing around and playing...
We are going to do it again soon! We LOVE the summer! (which is a good thing...b/c it is SOOOOOOO hot here in Springvegas!!)
Currently, I'm carrying my Dooney & Bourke that Justin got for me a couple of Christmases ago...I would visit it at both Macy's and Dillard's in the weeks leading up to Christmas...and I was so surprised when I actually got it. The only problem with it: it's waaaaaayyyyyy heavy...even when there's not much in it. (Which is never the case)
AND OF COURSE...my keys...those are only my car keys...see below for my other keys...
I have to carry these at work...so they are on a lanyard (spelling)
Usually, I put my car keys and the lantard so I don't lose them...Hope you enjoyed this fun little post.... I would like to know whats in your purse too...so leave a comment with your site so I can find out!!!
*Wearing size 1 - 2 diapers.
*Using level 2 nipples and eating 5 oz. ever 2 - 4 hours.
*Rolls from her back to tummy regulary and would actually rather be on her tummy
*Wearing mostly 0 - 3 clothes, but some are too small and others are too big. (baby clothes are weird)
*Wearing size 1 or 2 shoes...depending (again) on the brand
*Still struggling with the sitting thing but getting better everyday
*Can support almost all of her own weight on her legs (but, of course, is wobbly...duh!!)
*Talking more and more everyday...she is saying a few vowel - consinent combos
*On her tummy, can push herself up and lock her arms (think yoga)
*Our night time situtation is: 9:30 to 2:30, then she eats, then it's back to sleep until about 6:00, then eat, back to sleep (usually with mommy - I know, bad mommy) then finally up about 8:30ish...maybe sometimes 9:00
*She catnaps all day long...20 - 30 minutes here and there...which sometimes makes for a cranky Molly if Mommy decides to shop or something...she sometimes naps for an hour or so around 12:00 or 1:00.
And without further ado...here's Molly's 4 month "photo shoot"...I live for days like this...
Dancing with Mommy "This bores me!" The SHOE shot! These totally cute shoes came form this shop on Etsy! I'm probably going to order some in a bigger size as she gets older!
I finally bought Molly a kiddie pool today so be prepared for that cuteness to come soon!!
Head on over and enter in this awesome giveaway... she's great blogger momma....plus her daughter is soooooooo cute!!
He got the tickets for me on Valentine's Day. I was so surprised b/c I thought we weren't getting each other anything for V-day. PLUS...I LOVE CARRIE!!
A short review:
Sons of Sylvia were awesome!!!!!! Please check them out on You Tube or on Itunes!! They were on American Idol so you might recongize them! They sound kinda irish country. Plus the three guys are ver sexy musician brothers...I'm assuming their mother's name is/was Sylvia. :)
Craig Morgan was great!! He was very entertaining...and I love his new song..."This is ain't nothing"...amazing...
Carrie was....she was... just.... there are no words to describe how she was...amazing, great, the best, inspiring... and I could go on and on...she was sang "How great Thou art" amd I got
goosebumps. I like her before the concert last night but now....she's one of my faves!!!
Thanks babe!!! I love you!!!
1. I'll start with the most disturbing and "worst enviromental disaster in history". It's day 59 of the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico.
Pictures like the one below are all over the internet and the news and are some of the saddest pictures I've ever seen. You know, I think of myself as enviromentally conscience but not a huge one. I mean, I drive an SUV, I don't recycle, and I use styrofoam...but I THINK about the enviroment. I believe in Global Warming...and think that even if it's not real...that shouldn't give us a reason to be irresponsible.
I have to say...I voted for Barack Obama. I son't think of myself as a Demoract or Republican but I would say that I think a bit more liberally than say...my husband. Without giving you too much...or pissing anyone off... I think that being more understanding and accepting than critical and of people is a more Christain way of living.
But I'm a little upset with the way that President Obama has handled this thing. I know he's a politican but I actually thought that when we elected him, he was going to do things differently. I would be a little bit more intense when it came to issues. Really, President Obama...it's took you 58 days of oil spilling into the Gulf to address the nation? 58 DAYS!!!???
You couldn't come to us before now? You couldnt just come on and say to the American people that you are pissed and BP will pay? (And hopefully they will) I really think that this will get him beat in the next election...and I'll be honest...unless the Republicans nominate someone ridiculous...like Sarah Palin or Roy Blunt... I'll probably vote against him. He's bought into the Washinton CRAP!!! He's being so controlled by what everyone around thinks is "politcally correct" that I think he's CHANGED!!!
Now, I didn't watch the speech last night (I was, stead, watching Carrie Underwood and Craig Morgan dance around and entertain us on stage)...but I DID watch it this morning...and I thought it was okay. It wasn't anything too exciting. BUT... I LOVED what he said about the oil spill influencing our need to find a clean energy source.
2. You know, I was going to talk about Miley Cyrus and Perez Hilton, and Linsday Lohan next...now, there's a trio that probably should be illegal...oh wait...it is b/c Cryus is underage!! (p.s. That's why he's in trouble..apparently he posted a picture of Miley with no underwear...bad Perez!!...That's just gross!)
But instead, I think I will chat about something a little bit more "local" than dumping billions of gallons of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. I don't watch Days of Our Lives, but I do daily watch The View...
I don't agree with everything that all the women on the View say...in fact, I disagree with every single "View" about something. I may agree with Elizabeth on one thing but disagree with her on another. In my opinion (and that's what this post is all about)...
1. Elizabeth needs to calm down a bit...she's a bit radical about her conservatism. She says some things sometimes that I would not consider to be "christian" at all. But overall, she's okay.
2. Joy is wayyyyyyyyyyy too liberal. Somethings she says, I would like to throw something at the tv...
3. Whoopie is my fave!! I love the way that she plays devil's advocate.
But yesterday, I was so disappointed in Elizabeth. Kathy Griffen was the guest and I will admit...she is disgusting and, most of the time, is not very funny. But apparently, Kathy has said some things about Elizabeth (and Sherri for that matter) that were not very nice. First, Elizabeth was sooooooo unprofessional and just plain mean herself. Kathy is a comidienne and gets paid to do what she does...make fun of people! (She does it well....disrespectfully but well...she gets the rise out of people she wants)...
My question and point to this story is this...Do people really think this is a christian way of acting? Doesn't the Bible say to forgive all? Now, I will admit, I'm not the best at doing this...actually... I SUCK AT IT! But I'm trying to get better. But, frankly, I'm tired of people using God and christianty to bring judgement to their fellow man.
I know I probably didn't do very well at getting my point across...but I hope you get the point. Let's be more understanding of each other. Let's not judge but accept and maybe, through understanding, we can witness to those who need witnessing.
