The girls were flower girls for the first time in Hannah Prisock's wedding, and they loved every minute of it! Their Aunt KK made them look adorable, and they loved getting their hair done & getting to wear a bit of makeup. Both made it down the isle and did exactly what they were supposed to do. Now, they can't wait to do it all again for their Uncle Brad and Aunt KK's wedding!!

We got a huge surprise on Friday when I walked into Makenzie's room to look for a toy for Presley. I just happened to glance over at the fish tank and noticed something didn't seem to be quite right. Upon further inspection, I quickly realized the tiny little things swimming around in the tank were baby fish! Apparently, our Molly fish (who was specifically supposed to be male & the only fish of this type we have) was pregnant when we bought her & she had babies. Molly's have live birth instead of laying eggs & upon further research, I found that they can have 12-30 babies their first time & up to 60 after that. Not only that but a fertilized Molly in a tank (even without a male fish) can continue to have babies for up to 6 months. WHAT???!!! You can imagine the excitement in our house when Makenzie got home from school on Friday and I showed her the babies swimming around in her fish tank! When I first noticed them there were only 3 babies swimming around, but I went in to feed them Friday evening & noticed she was acting strange so I decided to watch for a minute & I got to witness her have another one...very neat, really! I would love to post a pic, but you would never be able to see them. They're all smaller than your pinky fingernail & clear colored. As of right now, all 4 babies are thriving & eating...crazy! Hmmm...think we're going to need a bigger tank lol!

I've noticed Presley playing with one of her babydolls a good bit this week, and maybe it's because she has a new baby cousin or maybe she's just trying to be a "big girl" like her sister, but she's every bit the Little Mommy lately. I just love to watch her take Tucker (a friend's little boy who stays with us on Monday & Tuesdays) or Britlee's (her cousin) hand and tell them all kind of sweet things as she's leading them around. Too cute!
Yesterday, when we left home to pick Makenzie up from school, we'd gotten about 2 miles down the road when Presley gasped. I quickly asked her what was wrong to which she replied (in a horrified voice) that she'd left her baby at home all alone. She went on to BEG me to turn the car around and go home because if her baby woke up while she was gone, she would cry. I couldn't help but get tickled. Presley has never really taken an interest in baby dolls before-especially not like this. I tried to make her understand that her baby would be just fine until we got home & that she'd sleep the whole time we were gone. Presley said ok, but I could tell she was REALLY worried about her baby. When we got home, she ran straight to the bedroom, and I just had to follow along. I hid outside her door and watched & listened as she picked her baby up, showered kisses all over her, and told her how sorry she was for leaving her. Aww....
So, last night as I tucked Presley into bed, she also tucked baby in as well. They said their prayers & she kissed her goodnight. This morning, Presley made sure baby was bundled up in a blanket and ready to go (complete with diaper bag) when we got ready to leave to take Makenzie to school. She even buckled her into the carseat!
All of this really just blows my mind lol. I mean Makenzie doesn't even play with babydolls like this! If you know Presley, you know she is NOT the sweet, nurturing type. She's my little, rough tomboy. To see her be so affectionate and gentle with her babydoll just amazes me.
Can't wait to see what she comes up with next!!
