Hair by Christy

Since we moved to Lake Stevens, our friend Christy has been insisting on Marcus and I having a "babymoon".  So last Thursday, which was Marcus' birthday, we took her up on her offer and dropped Bradie off for the night!  And I am sure it took Christy all but about five minutes before she had her hands on Bradie's little head.  I guess I've been blowing it by asking Bradie if she wants ponytails...instead, as I learned from Christy, hair is now on the list of "Now its time to..."  :)  I was making it an option and of course she would say no.

Who knew my daughter with crazy Frodo hair had such a cute face!*

Our time away was fun for a few hours.  I had one of the best restaurant burgers I'd ever had at Bobs only to rid my body of it approximately six hours later!!! :(  I was so miserable I thought I was going into labor for half the night!  Oh well at least I didn't have to worry about waking Bradie up.

The next morning Christy and I took the kids to zoo and they had a fabulous time.  Uncoaxed, Bradie began telling the details of the day to her daddy at dinner that night. All about the lion roaring and the elephant taking a shower and the gorilla that was scratching his back. She says and does the funniest thing right now, I kinda wish I could freeze time.  Just today she was "fixing" my ears with the medicine that is apparently found in Lego blocks? All while talking this quiet, half-gibberish in the same tone as mommy does as I explain the day or when we change diapers. I burst out laughing and so did she... she thinks she's pretty funny!







*well, I did, actually :)

Bradie looks so cute! So Marcus was born in January too! Sounds like he was born right between Josh and Dan...
