They're Walking!

This week, Molly just started WALKING ACROSS THE ROOM while I was on the phone with my sister, Ginger.  It was the freakiest thing I'd seen.  I was AMAZED.  People tell you, "....and all of a sudden, they'll just start walking!"  I didn't believe it until I saw it.

And in less than 24 hours, Macy started walking too.  She took about 11 steps!  Currently, she's taken the lead with walking.  She can turn and steady herself.  She's been practicing her balance for quite some time. 

Molly has the goofiest, most wonderful, super happy and jolly smile on her face when she starts walking.  She thinks it is so great.  I wish I had a picture of that smile.

Molly loves to look at books....this is what she was doing while we were on the side of the road...after our tire blew out this week.
We enjoyed a fun and busy week......we went to the zoo with Tajia and Bethany.  Lots of fun!
Macy is one happy girl!

"Pollywog Pond" at EdVenture....PERFECT!
That's my car on the tow truck.  One of my tire treads blew off as I was
driving down the interstate on the way home from our second adventure this week.
Thankfully, we easily got safely on the shoulder of the road. 

This summer has been wonderful .... I love spending the days with you, watching you play and laugh and wrestle and look at books and practice walking.  You two girls are the most amazing creations I've ever seen.  I love you dearly.  DEARLY.

Summer Time & One Year Olds

Girls, Mommy is so happy to have time to spend with you this summer.  You are full of life and laughs and energy.  I love spending the day with you and being the one who gets to see what you're up to first.  One of my favorite things is going in to pick you up from your naps and seeing the big, goofy, satisfied grins you have when you realize you're being rescued! 

Today and yesterday at lunch time, you did something so very cute.  Macy, you will reach your hand over to Molly and then Molly, you look over at Macy with a big ol' grin and reach back to her.  Molly, you laugh about it and Macy, you smile about it.  I love those moments! 

Molly, lately you've been "walking" (falling forward) with a jolly, Frankenstein-like look.  I love it.  You walk along the coffee table or wherever and then just go out on faith....falling forward with a big goofy grin on your face.  So sweet, so pleasant!

Macy, you are continuing to show off your balancing skills in the middle of the floor or wherever you find an opportunity.  You're serious about it!  But then, at times, you give that big ol' smiling-as-hard-as-I-can smile.  So precious.
