Catching our breath

We've had a busy weekend. Had everyone over for tv night on Thursday. Logan was asleep when he arrived so we put him into Molly's travel bed (think mini-me pup tent) and then put Molly down about an hour later. She went down without any issues and both kids were able to sleep until Logan went home for the night. I'd call that a major success!

On Friday we had everyone over for a 4th of July bbq. Everyone got some swing time in (memo to self: check weight limit on swing before Jamie comes over again). There was a ton of great food and Grandma Marsh and Hickson were able to visit with all the little ones. Once the majority of folks left we decided to stay in and skip the fireworks since Molly was getting tired. She went to bed around 9 and the fireworks started up around 9:30. The adults enjoyed a movie projected onto the side of the house while sitting in the hot tub as Molly slept soundly in her room. Good to know this doesn't wake her up as the hot tub is right outside her bedroom window.

Saturday was another busy day. N took Molly on a jog in her jogging stroller which caused her to pass out for her morning nap. Then that afternoon we headed over to Amy & Dean's house where Molly was able to spend some time with twin boys that are just about to turn 2. Molly was more interested in Amy's stairs and toy box than the older men. We hit the pool, which Molly loved, and headed back for dinner. Molly's second nap was basically in the car on the drive down so she was starting to get really tired and cranky. She passed out on the drive back home and slept for almost 12 hours. I think she's going through another growth spurt.

Today we headed up to Oakland with Grandma and Grandpa Marsh to visit Aunt Tracey for brunch. Then we had another bbq for Grandma Hickson as her birthday was on the 1st. Molly just had a bath and is currently playing with her Fisher Price Little People farm house with her dad. Well, dad hasn't moved for a few minutes so dad might be napping.

Molly is crawling all over the place now and pulling herself up on everything. Hence the lack of posts these last few weeks. I know pictures and video are the priority so I try to get those up when I can. Have some from this weekend that I will try to get up later tonight when Molly goes to bed. Just wanted to take advantage of the few minutes of downtime and bring everyone up to speed on what we've been up to.
