Play Date and the Cookie Monster

We had a fun morning. We had a friend come over and stay the morning with us so his parents could go for an ultrasound to find out if he was having a little brother or a little sister!!!

They played pretty well together. He is about 7 months older than Harper. And MUCH more mellow and easy going. ha! I love that they were both in their fleecy pj's.
Isn't he cute? I loved this picture!
This was CLEARLY taken with my phone and not my camera but I'm sure he doesn't play with a teapot at home much. ha! I told him it was coffee so he wouldn't lose his man card. :-)
Harper missed her morning nap and normally doesn't nap in the afternoon but we both needed some rest so after he left I fed her lunch, gave her a bath and bottle and put her to bed and she slept for two hours! When she got up a package had come from my Uncle Bob and Aunt Linda so I let her open it.
They got her this cute outfit and shoes! We love them!! They also sent a nice donation for the Ronald McDonald House that we are excited about.

AND:

I almost didn't post this next part because I told Scott I imagined I would get lots of comments about what a bad mother I am but I remembered that my 2010 resolution is to blog for US and it was also TOO funny not to remember.

Harper has a drawer in the kitchen that she can play in. It has tupperware and her bottles and snacks and she is happy to play in it forever. So she was in it this afternoon and I went right next to her in our laundry room to load the dryer. I was just there for a minute but I realized that she had gotten quiet and went to check on her. I couldn't find her but I heard a noise coming from our pantry. The door was partially shut and the light was out but this little mouse had found the package of oreos on the bottom shelf and was helping herself:
I gave her a little taste of Oreo a week or two ago and she liked it so much when I put the package away she nearly turned purple she was so mad. I guess she remembered the goodness. I know it's just awful but I was laughing hysterically that she was double fisting the oreos.
(I should explain that I just happened to have the camera sitting out on the kitchen counter so of course I took this before I got her out of there. But I had to GRAB those cookies out of the hands of steel. She did not want to let go. And then Dawson took off with one and I had to open his mouth with both hands to get it out. I sort of think they may be working together as a team).
I'm thinking that next weekend when she gets her own cake - she is not going to have ANY problems putting it away! ha!

Good girl, Harper! What girl doesn't like Oreos?!

Kim @ Kim and Mikey said...

Harper's double fisting of the oreos had me doubled over in laughter. I can not wait to have little moments like that with my Joycelen. Thank you for sharing you life with us....such an inspiration!

Amy said...

I don't see anything wrong with it at all. I think it's HILLARIOUS! Although... I'm not sure about the "I've Been Good All Year" with her new Oreo theiving ways! :)

Way to go, Harper! You have good taste! My son would be SO proud of you. Oreos are his favorite!

Wade's World said...

That's so cute. I love that the picture with her oreo mouth her shirt says "I've been good" ha! Have a great week!

The Speight Family said...

Love the oreo pictures! So funny. Emerson got into the christmas cookies one morning and the look on her face said it all....I am caught!

Also, Emerson had the Hartsrtings outfit last year. So cute!!

Rachel Moss said...

This is priceless! I am so glad you grabbed your camera. My daughter would have done the exact same thing!

Casey said...

Oh, that is the funniest thing I have ever seen! And don't for one minute think you are a bad mother. That is the priceless moments that make being a mother so wonderful! I am pretty sure my daughter was drinking sweet tea by 10 months! That's just one of the things about living in the south. (we are from SC)

The Bells said...

I just spewed chips out of my mouth when I saw the picture of her eating the Oreo's! Hilarious! I also like the irony of her shirt..."I've been GOOD all year!" Love it!

Rebekah said...

I LOVE IT!!!! I can't believe sweet girl will be one year old in a few days! Man, it goes too fast!

Colleen said...

Kelly that picture and the fact that she got into those oreos when you were out of sight is HYSTERICAL funny! It's one of the cutest things ever. Let that baby have an oreo!!! She loves them.

I know you are excited about her birthday! Can't wait to see pictures. She has turned into a little girl!

Krystena Kae said...

It's ok Harper. I feel the same way about Oreos. Just wait till you learn to dip them in milk!

stacy@dooLITTLETHINGS said...

Love it Kelly! So funny. Looks like she pulled out another package of cookies but knew she wanted the Oreos. And the fact that she has on her "I've been good." shirt is too funny.

Oh, and just wanted to say that I feel terrible that your worry about negative comments. I think you're a great momma and I love that you are gracious enough to share your life with us.

Have a blessed day!

Jenny said...

I love that she did this while wearing a little shirt that says, "I've been good all year!" That is so adorable! Being a mommy is just the best!

Kelly, I love today's post! It makes me wish mine were babies again. YOu are a great mom. I have dozens of "bad mom" stories by the way. (I even asked poison control if they were tracking me...) I was cleaning my bathroom and to keep them away from harm, I put all three in front of the TV. Maybe 10 minutes later I walk through the kit. to check on everyone and one of my 1 year olds had pulled a chair up to the sink and was sitting in dishwater taking a bath. There is no possible way to keep your eyes on them at all times.
A tip--make sure your oatmeal is higher up. Mine was sitting at about 18-mo. height...you do the math.

the bowlin family said...

I am literally laughing out loud at the picture of Harper cramming ithe oreos in her mouth. :) Kelly, you are one of the best moms ever. Don't ever let anyone tell you otherwise. And I am a complete stranger, ha! :) I love the oreo story. We all have stories just like them. And laugh about them for years.

Puttin' On The GRITS said...

Just wait until she gets that ranch dressing!

Heather L. said...

I can tell from the picture how tight she was holding those Oreos - too funny!!! Glad you posted those - if there's a mom out there who can't relate, I'd love to know who it is. We've all been there!

Staci said...

Oh my word!!! That's too much! I guess good thing they weren't Double Stuff Oreos?!?!

Unknown said...

That by no means makes you a bad mother. I am impressed that you were able to get such a good picture that fast. Too funny! She is a smart baby- goes straight for the good stuff. Ha Ha!

Kimberley said...

Love the pics!! I too laughed out loud! I caught my son with his hand in the toilet just yesterday if that makes you feel better. :)

ardith said...

Cute, cute story! She's a girl after my heart- gotta have her chocolate!!

The Wallace Family said...

Oh my that is so funny and made me laugh so hard!! I love the picture of you holding her. I think her and Dawson are DEFINITELY working together! At least she has good taste! Yummy:)

Katie Patterson said...

Ha!!! Love the Oreo story!!! Your not a bad mom at all. You could send that picture into Oreo and maybe get a commerical gig out of it for Harper...The last picture looks like she is saying..."Got Milk".

Just this morning my friends and I were talking about this kind of thing. One friend said she had to bribe her son to take his medicine by telling him he could have a chocolate kiss. The other friend said that her little boy had an Oreo for breakfast over the Christmas holidays...so you are not alone!!!

Sarah said...

That is HILARIOUS!!! And you aren't a bad mom, no matter what anyone else says!!

Jordan said...

OMW, that's hilarious!

noahandlylasmommi said...

LMBO!!! I am cracking up over here!!! That picture is priceless!

Ruth said...

I laughed out loud at the Oreo mission. The picture of her double fisting it is so cute.

Jenn said...

A girl after my own heart! I cannot blame her for stuffing her face with oreos. I wish I could stuff my face with oreos and look that cute.

Mrs. Shelton said...

Crack me up! I love it! :) I love oreos too Harper! :)

Aspiring Mom2three said...

You gotta love them when they get quiet! At least it was something edible. It's hard to get mad when they make a mess and look so CUTE! Ellen, I thought the shirt was funny as well!

Brenda said...

That has to be the best thing I have seen all day!!!!

She's like "hurry before mom sees me!!"

:) Awesome pic.

Danielle said...

That last picture is precious!! And the I've been good all year shirt just makes it that much better!!

Unknown said...

That is the best!!! Funniest thing I have seen today! NOT A HORRIBLE MOM!!!!

momofall said...

Look at that oreo girl go!! She is so adorable!! Reminds me of one time when I took my son with me to get my hair cut. I took the walker along and put him in it. Next thing I knew his face looked like Harper;s with the chocolate on his face, except his was DIRT from her plant. I about gagged. He's now a youth pastor in Scotland- guess it was just a good initiation for him. Gotta love those kids!!!! dsfox625@hotmail.com

Heather said...

I love that she's wearing her "i've been good all year" shirt during the Oreo caper! Priceless pic, so glad you shared!!

Danielle Bridgers Banks said...

Love, Love, Love the Oreo pictures!!! Of course you had to take a picture of that! Those are fun memories. It reminded me of when my nephew was younger he got into my Mom's makeup and marked all over himself with her black eyeliner, drawing circles all around his eyes, face, and even pulled his shirt and drew on his belly!! Of course, we couldn't help but laugh and certainly had to take a picture. But then he was in BIG trouble with his Nana! ;) yeah right!!

Kristen said...

The part about the oreos made me laugh out loud and I had to read it all to my husband, which he enjoyed! Thanks for sharing!

Melissa said...

OMIGOODNESS!! I almost snorted when I saw those pictures. That is some sweetness right there!

Avahsmama said...

Love the oreo pictures. Made me laugh!

holly said...

I think that she has jumped from soon to one to 21...only a real "woman" can find chocolate in the dark! My kinda girl!

Megan Light said...

I love love love the picture of Harper double-fisting Oreos! What girl hasn't done that at some point in her life?

Unknown said...

That is TOO funny! Harper and Dawson definitely have the team effort going on! Good job posting what YOU want to post about. If people feel the need to criticize your parenting, it means they are just not happy with their own parenting. Enjoy being a mom, especially when you find Harper in the pantry!

Jill said...

Thank you so much for sharing. I love the Oreo shot. It's moments like that that we need to blow up as large as we can and keep out for all to see.

Raina's Retreat said...

It's so hilarious that her shirt says "I've been Good, How about you" after being caught red handed with the oreos.

Anita Grace said...

hahahah... thanks for sharing Kelly. You are FAR from being a bad mother, moments like that happen to us all... at least she was eating something that was meant to be eaten! When our son was one he too got into my pantry & was helping himself to SUGAR, yikes!!

Single Mom said...

It's ironic that her tee says "good"! Ha!

Kelly said...

She knows what's good!!

The B's said...

Oh, Kelly!!! She reminds me SO much of Emma!!!! If it goes like I think it will you will have a "sweet" (in more way than one) little hog on your hand! :)

Lesley said...

I laughed out loud when I saw the picture of Harper with the oreos. It is like she is a closet eater:) I also love that her shirt says that she has been good all year. What a cutie!

Anonymous said...

The Oreo pictures are hilarious, but I'm especially loving the first pic. The boy's expression is priceless.

Keren Ruth said...

My goodness, thank-you for the laugh, I love that picture of her with the oreos.
