Riding The Range With Daddy...

Day Cinq:
I was a little intimidated
with riding the pony at the farm
all by myself, so...
My brave, strong, handsome
prince of a daddy came
to my rescue!

Ahh, I love my daddy!

Hangin' With Mommy...

Day Deux:
This is how Magnolia rolls,
in the Baby Bjorn,
attached to mommy!
She even went on the hayride
at Sweet Berry Farm like this!

*p.s. do you notice something
in Miss M's hair? Why yes,
it is a hair clip that I am letting
her borrow. Can you believe it?
She is already sporting the look
I started way back when I was 3 months old!

A Week In Pumpkins...

Day Une:
We visited Sweet Berry Farm
this weekend. It was our first
long drive and day outing as
an entire family. Everybody
held up well. Even without naps.
Here we are, mommy's girls,
with our momma waiting
for the annual hayride...

We think this pic is so funny because
it gives you such a sense of what
life is like balancing a toddler and a baby.
Mommy's tip for Tuesday... Just laugh!
As Aunt Jen Jen once told her,
Life's too mysterious to take so serious!

*we will be posting a pic a day
of our sweet experience!

Mommy's Dreaming Of NYC...

Mommy and Aunt Summer in Central Park...
Beautiful BFF's Fall 2008...
Fall 2005 and...
Mommy preggo with moi, Fall 2006...
(love the pose Aunt Sum!)

Mommy needs a vacay.
She's so busy these days.
Taking care of me (I've been a little sicky)
and Maggie...she's just a wee little thing
who needs to be feed, held, burped, and changed
ALL the time!
Not to mention mommy is sewing.
Yes, you read that correctly.
She is sewing.
Sewing shirts for a holiday show
to represent Oh Fiddlesticks!

Exciting times, busy times, tiring times.
Mommy is even trying to escape in her dreams.
The other night she had a dream about
visiting her BFF, my Aunt Summer in
New York City. She said she
walked into her apartment and
there were candles lit and wine
waiting for her...

I think this was the sign mommy
was waiting for to buy her ticket.
So, last night she did just that!
Mommy is going on a little trip
to NYC to see her BFF
in December. She is ready
for some wine and girl time.
I think she deserves it, don't you?

Upside Down Crown...

I LOVE the way my sis is checking me out
or is she marveling at the way I wear my crown...
Maybe she thinks it's a little funny???
I just can't help but crack myself up, too...
YOU see, I adore wearing my crown and I MUST put it on...
all by myself!
This is why it ends up
as the upside down crown!
Maybe I will start a new
crown wearing trend???

Two Month Stats...

From serious...
to smiles...
And from smiles...
to serious!
(Me and my baby sis both at 2 months old)

My stats at 2 months: 11.2 lbs 23 inches
Magg's stats at 2 months: 10.2 lbs 22.25 inches

Maggs is already rolling over from tummy to back,
she coo's, laughs, smiles, and says "hi!"
She is currently sleeping in 6-7 hour stretches
at night, which has mommy and daddy thrilled!
Currently she is sitting in her chair, looking at herself
in her baby mirror, and cooing and laughing!
Too cute!

Well, it's true...
Mommy has come up with a few
new nicknames for Magpie.
Don't ask why, this is just something she does.
Maybe she's trying to get back at the world
for having to live through her childhood as
(and sometimes Missy Muffin!)

Here goes the current list:
Maggie Moo
Moo Moo
Moodily Moo
and my latest:

Do you have a nickname too?
Please share if you do...

From Fussy Baby To Happy Baby...

Playing on the floor...
with pup...
makes Maggie Moo smile!

Maggs has woken up to the world and
is full of smiles (when she's not gassy!)
She likes to play with her baby gym, stare
at herself in the mirror (who doesn't?), lay
on a soft blanket and touch pup or one of her
rattles (I need to introduce her to cashmere, don't I?)
and she LOVES moi (especially my hair!)

This past week Magpie has gone from fussy
baby to happy baby and we are all very excited about that!
(we are crossing our fingers and saying lots of prayers that it will last)
We are hoping the days of driving in the car with a screaming babe
are over. Although I am a good sport and just read
books, sing songs, or talk with mommy while Maggs cries.
Mommy has assured me that she is just tired, and does NOT like
her car seat. I have been informed that I did NOT like it either!
Stay tuned for more Maggie Moo news tomorrow...
Bon Nuit!

Stamp Painting...

Look at moi...
I painted today!
First, I dipped the cookie cutter or stamp
in the paint color of my choice...
(personally, I like to mix the colors!)
Next, I placed the stamp on my easel paper and...
Stamped! Stamped! Stamped...
I got really into this activity...
I was very focused on the task at hand...
I felt so calm...
The colors and textures were intriguing me...
I decided to stamp, and sponge paint a tree!
And I loved squishing my sponge stamp...
All done with my tree!
What do you think???

Why We Are Watching Oprah Today...

Can't wait to see Nie...

Sink Or Float...

My hands are included in the experiment...
I think they sunk!
I thought I would taste the water to
see if the flavor changed from all the objects...
Then I decided to lick my drumstick as well...
Ha! This was fun...
Let's do it again soon!

Mommy thought it was time
to do a science experiment.
She introduced me to sink
or float...The big question we
were trying to answer was:
Do apples sink or float?
I guessed that they would float...
and I was correct!
We also tested a button, a drumstick,
a Lightning McQueen car, a piece of
cut apple, a sticker, and a rock.

After our experiment we
made homemade applesauce
with the apples. It was delish!
Later that week I played sink or
float again, and this time we dropped
objects into the bath tub! Science is fun!
Hmm, I wonder what type of experiment
we will do next? If YOU have any
great ideas, please let me know!

friends, family, and neighbors
a little Magnolia Cupcake treat

adjusted to life with 2 girls!
We have been overwhelmed with the

We are so grateful for YOU all...
Merci Beaucoup!
