Mallory's obsession.......continued

I don't think that is going to fit!

Doesn't she look like such a big girl sitting in that chair???

One, Two

Three, Four

Now take them all off then back on again

Look Mommy - I have a purse!

I just thought I would share some of the pictures I have taken over the last few days proving my childs obsession with purses (or anything that will fit on her arm). Please excuse the red shirt with pink pajama bottoms - she spit up after breakfast so I had to change her shirt. And we don't leave the house with Alyssa's hair like that - it was just to keep it out of her face. We are headed to Shreveport this weekend. We are going to my Grandmother's 80th birthday party. The girls start summer MDO next week!! Who-hoo!!!

Hot Springs, Onion Rings & Silliness

We went to Hot Springs this past weekend. Our friends Dylan and Mary were in visiting his family so we decided to go and visit them. My Mom and Mike went with us to help with the girls. We found a great house to rent. It was wonderful. Trey got to play golf everyday and I got to have a spa day. So lately Mallory has this obsession with putting things on her arm like a purse. She will put anything with a handle on her arm and pile on as much as possible. Well, we were eating at a nice steak house and our steaks came with a onion ring on top. Mallory reached over and grabbed Trey's onion ring and put it on her arm. I took this picture with my phone so it is not the best quality.
To most of you this picture may look like a kid being silly. To us it is a major milestone. Alyssa has not been doing "appropriate play". Which means playing like a normal kid with toys. She usually just puts everything in her mouth. Well, today I walked in the playroom and she was putting this bucket on her head and spinning around laughing and acting silly. I was SO excited! This is the kind of stuff Mallory does - just acting silly! And when Mallory sees we think it is funny she just keeps doing it! Well, Alyssa saw I was laughing and she just kept doing it!

Mallory couldn't even finish lunch! She will NOT go to sleep in the morning anymore but can barely make it through lunch! She still has the bottle in her mouth and is sound asleep! I love that her feet are crossed too!

We have great news! We have leased our house in Shreveport. The people we bought it from actually called us last week and wanted to lease it from us. We are going to take it off of the market and hopefully we can wait until the market picks back up before we list it again!

So we were in Monroe today at a Dr appointment and after we left Trey (in the new Tahoe) got CREAMED from behind!!!! We have not even had it a week!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Trey was stopped at a light and the car was going full speed not even paying attention and also make Trey hit the car in front of him. Thankfully no one was hurt. Unfortunately the new Tahoe is probably going to be in the shop for a few weeks. The car that hit Trey was demolished!!! I can't believe she came out okay. Praise God the girls and I got stopped at a red light and were not behind Trey. So it looks like I will not be posting a picture of the new car anytime soon! All I can say is UNBELIEVABLE!!!!!!!!

Measles, Tubes, Pigtails, & Ponytails

They are all smiles until they see the camera!

This is her first ponytail! Mimi bought this HUGE bow and I thought it would be years before she wore it. I guess I was wrong!

Her first pigtails!

Mallory & Alyssa both have ear infections. Mallory woke up Friday morning with 103 fever. I took her to the doctor and she gave her an antibiotic for the ear infection. I just happened to ask her to look in Alyssa's ears to find she had an ear infection too! Mal's temp kept staying high. We just couldn't get it down. We ended up taking her to the ER Friday night and we were there from 11pm-2am. We came home just to fight the fever for the rest of the weekend. She finally broke it Monday. We went to the ENT for both girls Monday because this was Mal's 4th ear infection. The doctor said Mal had the Rosiolo Measles (spelling?). Basically it is a high fever for about 3 days then a rash all over the body. Alyssa had the same thing when she was about 8 months old. Luckily once you have had it you can't get it again. Anyway, the doctor also scheduled Mal to have tubes next week. We kinda figured she would say that. Trey finally got a new car. I will post pictures of that next. Anyway, we are pretty busy around here. I hope all of you Mom's have a wonderful Mother's Day!!!!
