The sweetest baby girl!


Today is all about Molly! She has done some of the most amazing, sweetest things, I don't want to forget about and want to share!

Yesterday, she was in the kitchen with Eric while he was making dinner, found a rag and started wiping down the floors and table. She helped me vacuum by holding on to the handle. She also picked up all the food she threw after each meal! She LOVES the trash can!

This morning when we all woke up, she wanted to give Jack a hug, but he had to go potty ALONE! He kind of woke up on the wrong side of the bed, didn't have his coffee yet, really he just wasn't awake enough this morning. He did NOT want his little sister in there this morning, so he slammed the door in her face. too bad her hand was in the crease of the door and her hand was stuck in between the door and door frame. Poor baby! She screamed and cried for the longest time. When he came to apologize, she started crying again, she told him! But after she calmed down and Jack woke up more, they hugged and made up as friends and siblings do. She is very forgiving!

Finally, he was in the bathroom again before nap time (with the door closed and no hands were hurt) and going number 2, he yelled he was all done and needed me to help him wipe. For those of you who don't have a 3 year old, moms and dads help their kids out by wiping them after number 2ing. If we didn't help, we would go through an entire roll of toilet paper each time. So, I go in there to wipe him and I hear Molly right behind me. She had gone into her room, gotten out her wipes and brought them to me!! SO SWEET!!!! Jack said thank you to Molly and laughed at her, but I told him she was trying to help her big brother! It melted my heart! She is such a wonderful little girl!

Thanks for letting me brag!!

Now a little update on the Brewers!! Another hot, humid August day in Katy and wouldn't trade it for any amounts of snow or ice! We've been having a very relaxing past couple of weeks with lots of time at the pool, playing at home and going to our friends houses! As always, Jack and Molly are as busy as ever and it's getting harder to keep up with them! I feel like a huge, fat cow (with the mustache and dark nose, don't forget!) and still feel like October is a very long time from now...too long...way too long. The baby is healthy and all my appointments are going great, I'll take the mustache (as long as it goes away once the baby arrives).

Jack is signed up to play soccer this fall, so cute! I can't wait to see him in his little shin guards, running all around the soccer field! His games are every Saturday, from September 26th (the best birthday present I could ever imagine...well, as a mom) to November 14th. Practices are once a week, so it's a little something extra to help get out some energy, he has a ton!!

Speaking of lots of energy, we were getting ready to go to the pool yesterday afternoon and Jack was running, maybe sprinting from our office to our family room. I guess he wanted to do some laps, get in some exercise, not quite sure. Our office is in the front of the house, so he ran from the office, through the front hallway to the family room windows. When he was almost to the windows he tripped on fell headfirst into the windowsill. I wasn't in the room with him, but heard him hit his head and it was the worse sound. He has a huge goose egg on his forehead, it started to bleed under the skin, and he was screaming. Being the levelheaded parents we are, all four (five?) of us jumped into the car and headed to the hospital...in our swimsuits....Molly with no shoes. We were there about 2 1/2 hours but it was worth it. They did a cat scan on him and it was so hard watching him go through it without being right there next to him. It was so cute with his little crocs sticking out of the blanket on the long table, I just wanted to squeeze him!! He did great until the machine made a noise and a started crying, moving all around. Once I calmed him down, Eric and Molly weren't in there, and the technition promised a toy, he was fine. Everything is great, no fractures or clots, we just need to keep an eye on him for any odd behavior or illness. Trust me, he was fine on the way to the hospital, talking to us and telling us everything that happened. The doctor held up one finger and asked Jack to follow it, Jack kept telling the doctor Molly is one while following the finger and holding up one finger.

Molly was a trooper and did great! She loved the ER room we were in because of all the tubes and machines and kept saying hi to everyone. At first we just held her because she didn't have shoes on, but about the 2 hour mark, she was running down the hallways, laughing at us. She was great entertainment for all the nurses and patients. Her swim diaper did hold up the entire time, so our adventure to the bathroom was exciting because we saw the vending machines, a wheelchair, and washed our hands. Fun times!!

Jack slept in our bed last night with Eric, I opted for the coach in the playroom because our bed is too small for Eric, I and my stomach, I couldn't imagine Jack in the mix. He seems fine, eating normally, talking, running, and being his usual self. He even told me that his new room was with Daddy and I sleep upstairs now. So, we're done with him sleeping in our bed! His head looks a lot better today, so thank goodness it's just a big bump on the head!

We haven't taken pictures of the goose egg, but I added some pictures of our fun summer!
