Listen here: when I was pregnant with Molly, and Juliette was very apparently still a baby, people in public (and some friends/acquaintances) would cluck to themselves and say, "Hmm, two in diapers...that'll be fun."
And I would counter with something along the lines of (but probably a little less smart-alecky), "What sounds fun about potty-training and having a newborn?"
Now that we've hit the iceberg of training with Jules, I just keep thinking, "man, diapers are so easy!" This is obviously short-term thinking, but is it terrible to say I'm glad she's been in diapers until now, with Molly being generally a little easier to care for too?
We had a great weekend full of trunk or treat at church, a fall festival attendance, a Halloween "spooky" concert, and even a fire in the fireplace. Here's documentation of some of that, though I'm going to withhold photos of their costumes until after Halloween night (it seems only right).
(Thanks to the venerable J. Grant Burke for these awesome pumpkin photos.)
As I said on instagram, I love how Molly is bracing herself in this one (a learned survival skill, at this point):
This almost perfectly captures my wild girl...
I saw someone (male) say on facebook that pumpkins and babies are like "mommy crack." Over the past few weeks, my social media feeds have definitely reflected this. And here I am, contributing to it.
On an unrelated note, we took our bi-weekly trip to Costco (when our biweekly grocery budget renews), and I wanna shout out to those double carts. SO FUN! Juliette holding the cheese, of course.
Crazy about these cuties.
Notes: Molly's headband is from my fave new-to-me headband shop, bloomies handmade. And their little peplum jackets are from baby Gap (Molly's here but Jules' isn't on the website anymore). So cute. Oh! And I am crazy over my Robeez mocs find on Amazon for Molly. They're even lined with fleece!
