Happy thanksgiving!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday with family this week! We had a great time with jc's family, in augusta, GA. I know, it's 3 hours away from my family and kind of weird we do all our holidays in Georgia, not texas. But it's a great part of the country, so it works for us!

We got back yesterday and it's kind of nice to have the weekend to recuperate and hang out here.

We are noticing daily changes with Molly! She has a full-blown, super-cute (not to mention sharp, yikes) tooth! She is sitting up really well, and scooching herself around with her arms. She's drinking water from a sippy cup (kind of) and eating avocado, sweet potato, rice cereal, and banana. That's in order of how she likes them so far. Rice cereal used to be a bit higher on the list but I started giving it to her with formula instead of breastmilk and she still sometimes shudders when I give it to her. hilarious!

this past week...

This past week we've had some fun developments with Molly!

First, a little tooth is popping in -I wouldn't have noticed it, but she was gnawing on my knuckle and I felt it! It's very cute!

We tried avocado this morning and she seemed to like it - I only gave her a little bit, but she ate it all.

We started giving her a sippy cup with water in it. She knows how to suck the cup and get the water, but she doesn't actually want to drink it, so she spits it out. It's just a cool toy to her. Smart girl!

Perhaps most importantly (just kidding), she went shoe shopping at nordstrom with the Crawford ladies:)

Molly's new friend

We had friends Corrine, Drew, and their son Brayden over for dinner last night. Brayden is 8 months old and a real cutie! We had a great time together and it was really fun seeing the little ones interact. I got a cute shot of them looking at each other!

Baby food

Molly started eating sweet potatoes this past weekend! She seems to like them as much as her rice cereal, and today ate all the rice and sweet potato I fixed for her at lunch. What a champ!

So, I'm learning to make baby food. (Did you doubt I would?) Here are some of the sweet potatoes I made, and froze in heart-shaped ice trays. Kinda cute I think :) We're going to give her avocado in a few days, so that's the green goop in the background. (Soon to be all over her face!)

cowboys game + Molly

JC set up a little compound for Molly since the cowboys game is on - it serves multiple purposes.

First, it prevents Molly from watching the game, which she would willingly stare at like a zombie, but it might turn her brain to mush. Second, she gets her tummy time without being able to roll over immediately. (Note the strategically placed pillows.) And third, she can play with her daddy!

True Love... sticking your finger in someone's diaper at 3 am to see if it is poopy. And it is.

Some of Molly's great grandparents

Here are Mubber and Poppy at their church's fall festival:

In case it's not obvious to you, Mubber is Hannah Montana and Poppy is a Pittsburgh Steeler. (He was going to go as a Jonas brother or Michael Jackson, but I guess the costumes didn't work out.)

Don't you LOVE this???

We started Molly on rice cereal last Saturday! What fun. Except that it's really disturbed her sleep during the day AND at night. (Ahem, gas... Lovely.) Like we needed another sleep disturbance!!

Anyway, besides that, it's pretty cute and she seems to be injesting it.
Well, except for this morning (that's what the picture is from)!

Crawford fam photo shoot

What started as JC's mom asking his brother Alan to come home from Baylor yesterday to take a Christmas card picture morphed into a full-blown photo shoot! Our good friend Mary Kathryn ended up coming over ... and we got the CD of pictures less than 24 hours later!

If you're in the Dallas area, she is a very talented photographer and also designs Christmas cards...

We'll use one of the pictures for our Christmas card - so I don't want to give too much away right now! :)

Molly's first football game...

Didn't go so well.

We went to see uncle drew play last night. When they forced a fumble and the parents all went crazy, she had a total breakdown!

We tried to tell her that she has to like football because we live in Texas, but she wasn't buying any of it. It's kind of sad, but her pouty face is just so cute!

pretty in pink

Molly's currently drooling all over my pillow. (It's my fault though, I took off her bib for some pictures...)
