First Haircut

Today Morgan got her first haircut.

 As you can see it was long overdue.

 She did really well. She just sat there and let her grandma do whatever she needed to do.

All done! Thank you, Linda. Now we can actually see her beautiful baby blues again. :)

My granola girl

Morgan doesn't like to have any clips or bows in her hair. (much to my dismay) She prefers to let her hair go natural and wild.
I know, she needs a haircut badly!

Morgan also loves eating with her hands, being outside, playing in the sand and dirt, and if I would let her everyday she probably wouldn't wear clothes.
Unless it is her daddy's undershirt :)

She also hates to wear shoes and socks. It seems like two seconds after I put them on she is working hard to take them off.

Unless, of course that is all she is wearing!
What a silly little girl we have. I love her so much!

Climb every Mountain

couch, chair, table, or toy box

I have a hard time keeping up with her lately. She is very curious and ALWAYS on the move. Lately, her favorite thing to do it turn the oven light on like 30 times in a day. She also has moved on from the kitchen cabinets to our desk drawers. I need a nap!

When Morgan was first born my mom would always ask me "Are you singing to her?".  I would have to admit that I wasn't singing to her as much as I probably should, but when they are so little and sleeping most of the time you just don't think about it. Well, at least I didn't. I understood that It was important for a babies calmness and security as well as making a connection with their mother. So, I listened to my mother and made sure I sang to her. Then as she got older I could tell that she was interested in my singing and it made much easier to remember to do it more often.

I was thinking about what songs I sing to her and I realized that I have a handful that I tend to shuffle through. Sometimes I will be holding her and trying to think of a new song. That is when "Crazy little thing called love" by Queen or "Hold On" by Wilson Phillips will come pouring out of my mouth. I have a pretty large memory bank of songs and I find it funny that over and over I sing the same ones.

Here is my list of my favorite "lullabies" to sing:

Blackbird-The Beatles
Somewhere over the rainbow-Wizard of Oz
You are my sunshine
Homeward bound -Simon and Garfunkel
Freshman-The verve pipe (I know strange choice, but it is mellow)
Favorite things-Sound of music

I really don't know why I picked these songs as my go to songs. Really they picked themselves because they kept coming to the front of my mind. So, I am curious. What songs do you sing to your children? And if you don't have children what songs where sung to you as a child or when you do have kids, what songs do you plan to sing to them? I think I need to add a little variety to my set list. :)

Trip to the dairy farm

Last week my good friend, Emily and I took our Kiddos to a local dairy farm.  I heard about it from some women at church and we thought it would be nice to let Morgan and Joe see some animals close up.  Plus, we heard they had amazing chocolate milk. : )
All in all I think it was a good, cheap trip. It was neat to see the kids point to all of the different animals. Joe is a year older and can name them by name, but it was fun to hear Morgan moo when asked "What does a cow say?" (She also says "woof woof" any time she sees a dog and kind of grunts for a pig)

Oh and they were right. That chocolate milk was delicious!
