Milestone weekend!

What a super fun & exciting weekend we had! Mollie has just been an absolute angel (what's new?!) during the days and nights. For all new parents, or seasoned ones for that matter, a good night's sleep for baby AND us is soooo lovely! On occasion she'll wake up once at some point, but just need to be patted and loved for a second, then she goes right back to sleep. For the past week at least, she has slept straight through the night...7pm-6:30am!! It's been awesome. So awesome, that I've now taken to waking up about 5:30 for the day and enjoying some quiet sofa time & news time with my cup of coffee.Ahhh.

So, Saturday morning Molls wakes up after her 11.5 hr slumber and we go into the living room to play for a bit. The girl was on her stomach for just a few seconds and she ROLLED OVER! After the first time she did her new trick, of course we had to video it:)

Some of you without children might be saying big deal, but really, when you have this little tyke that doesn't make any movements other than kicking legs, swinging arms and laying on back or tummy time, anything new in their development is exciting:) And it's a proud moment too...your little one is growing up & learning!!

We also ventured downtown on Sunday for '2nd Sunday', where they close a large part of King Street to all cars making it the perfect place to go with a stroller! Another brilliant Charleston happening, just doesn't get enough PR! Second month in a row now, the only place I hear about it is on the early AM news ticker.

Mollie and I ran into some friends, had some frozen yogurt at this new shop (well I did, M just watched in awe), danced to some fun tunes and then a couple hours later, she zonked out in the car on the way home. All that socializing can wear a girl out:)

I so wish Charleston would do this every Sunday or even twice a month! The weather could not have been more perfect or the people nicer. Shops had racks of items or tables outside, some places had little nibbles or drinks set out, it was just wonderful. We had a great time & of course Mollie was a ham to just about everyone who came up to her, young and old...smiling and squealing- just stealing hearts of course:)
