quite the little mother

molly loves playing with her dolls. she loves changing their diapers (usually they poop!) and picking out new clothes for them. recently she received a changing table and this makes playing with the dolls all the better. these dolls have multiple diaper changes - one right after the other because they're constantly doing an "i" (sorry alex!). she enjoys wiping them and then attempting to put a new diaper on. i'm going to have to watch sophie extra close or she's not going to have a diaper on and constantly be wiped!

in this video, you'll see molly with her doll on the changing pad. this time, the diaper doesn't go on all the way and she's whisked off to bed. complete with a kiss and a hug, the girl is ready to sleep. i'm refering to her as "the girl" because as of now, that's her name! she has girls and boys and one doll named sophie (this is the one that gets changed the most!)

cookin' up some fun!

molly absolutely loves her kitchen. she'd play in her room all day if i'd sit in there with her. matt and i tire of sitting in there cooking the same things over and over but nonetheless, we do it. she's quite the little chef and makes a variety of interesting concoctions. everything goes with everything! she cooks for us and for all her dolls and even makes the cats taste things on occasion (when they cooperate with her). cookies are one of her favorite things to make. she loves to mix them up, roll the dough and use her cookie cutters to make her cookies. then into the oven they go. only to come out about 10 seconds later piping hot!

smoothies are a big hit for molly. she loves drinking them. we call them the "special drink"! they usually are a special treat because we don't get the stuff to make them every week. this week, however, we did and molly has enjoyed one almost daily. she also makes smoothies in her kitchen as well with her little blender. a bit of everything - onion, asparagus, fruit, bread, donuts, chicken, "cow" (hamburger), you name it, it goes in. and let me tell you it's delicious! molly's special drink must be mixed for quite sometime to obtain the perfect smoothie and almost after each new ingredient is added!

this is also one of molly's favorite games - she sits in the cradle and tells matt and i what to cook for her. quite the little queen!
