Press play and find out!
Yeah that would be a correctamundo. I'm the mom whose boys can in-an-instant be unbuckled and ready for action. And
My little brother Adam. Just turned 29 folks. Just turned it, I tell you. And he and my sweet SIL Kim have one one adorable little girl.
Let's see. I don't think I really have ever introduced her to you before?
Only here, here, and here.
But whose counting, really?
MOLLYE ADDISON had her first overnight field trip to Uncle Kenny and Aunt Meghan's house!
Now this brother of mine was all hovery and all "Kim sent you an email with her schedule and directions", and all "make sure she plays with her fish in the bath. She loves her fish", and all "I have to get a picture of you with the boys and her before you leave."
So, of course, being the good big sister, I totally honored and respected his need for dawdling, excessive open-ended questioning only to reassure himself that his sister---mother of 2---really knew what she was doing with an infant, and the snapping of our pearly whites for scrapbooking's sake.
And Mollye's mama has just the best taste in clothes. Could this onesie get any cuter? The ruffle blue jean skirt too, but what about that onesie?
The boys and I ate Miss Mollye up. She is nothing short of a sweet doll baby.
And an eater, boy I tell you! Look at these teefers! She loves to feed herself. And happy as a lark as long as those bites keep comin'! The boys really liked being her meal attendants making sure she had just what she needed when she needed it!
Bath time for cousins! Daddy/Uncle Kenny is bath proctor in this house. And, yes, fish was there. He is in her hand, little brother Adam!
Now that's the stuff sewing machines are made for!
Back to the night-night story...Kenny came in to check on us, and saw me with stars in my eyes. He left and came back to get a picture. Rockin' baby girls just doesn't happen in this house!
The next morning it was off to the Red Bank Jubilee. k.Mac gladly donated a medium tote all dolled up RB style for the Lions Booster Club to raffle.
Loading a 4 year old, 2 year old, and 9 month old in and out of the car and getting there in timely fashion was a bit more oh let's say strategic than I was used to, but we rocked it out and got there just in time to watch the parade!
Here are a portion of the Lions. But forget about them. There's daddy in the back!
Mollye loved the band. She started just a kickin' and a smilin' when they came a ra-tit-tat-tatting by! Casey loved the miniature ponies and Eli loved the Shriner cars.
Lunch time was the best when you have on bibs like this!
I couldn't resist. I just couldn't I tell you. Mollye Bear makes my heart skip a beat and makes the presser foot of my sewing machine go-go-go!
Criss-cross backed sundresses...ruffled ribbon bloomers...pink flowers for buttons...
I am one lucky aunt!
And God gave me boys for a reason!!
