Molly 8 months

I am a few days late in getting to this because, hello Christmas! haha. I can't believe how time continues to fly and here we are at 8 months for Molly. She is doing awesome. Just recently she's started getting separation anxiety and she started reaching and crying for her mama. Feels good to be loved and wanted. :) Here are my favorite pictures this month:

With her cousin Hayley (we compared baby pictures of Hayley to Molly over Thanksgiving and you can definitely tell they are related!)

Bundled up and ready to go cut down our Christmas tree!

Sunday selfie. I was trying to distract her with my phone. 

The best place in the world.

Watching grandma and her cousins roll out dough at Thanksgiving.

Ready to eat her first Thanksgiving meal!

Molly and her new cousin, Lincoln.

Her eyelashes!!!

Getting ready to swim at Little America. She didn't love it, but I bet she will next year!

For her 8-month pictures we decided to take them in front of the Christmas tree. I took them all at different times of day, so the lighting is way different in all of them.

I can't believe next month is 9 months!

Davis turns 3!

With Davis's birthday on a Sunday this year, and the day after we got back from Thanksgiving in Idaho Falls, we kept things pretty low key this year. After church we made homemade pizza and opened his presents. Davis really loves cars and trucks and his favorite tv show right now is called "Blaze and the Monster Machines." He was very excited to unwrap some Blaze toys and new trucks from his grandparents, nana and papa, and us. He was even excited about his new Blaze sippy cups!

Naturally, he had a Blaze cake. He loved it and it made me smile to see him so excited about it. We invited over a few of his friends and their families to come have cake and ice cream with us, and I could tell he felt pretty awesome.

We all had a good laugh as he went to blow out his candles and he kept blowing over them. He kept blowing so hard and couldn't figure out why the candles wouldn't go out! It was so cute.

Whenever we asked him hold old he was going to be, he insisted he was turning 100 :)

We are so very lucky to have Davis in our family. If you know him, you love him. He's always drawn people in with his huge smile. He's our most independent and stubborn child so far, but he's also so sweet, helpful, and loving. He's always wanting to help me with whatever I am doing, whether it be loading the dishwasher, doing laundry, or moving groceries out of the cart to be scanned. His little voice is the cutest thing ever and I love listening to him. 

His birthday questionnaire:

Here are a few other notes on Davis at 3 years old:

-Still loves his "mimi" (pacifier), even though we really need to just bite the bullet and get rid of it
