Happy BIRTHday Molly!

2 months of age...sweet, sunburned girl!

Party like it's your birthday, little girl! (because it IS your birthday!!) You've come a long way, Baby!! The BIG one year old!! woohoo!

Just a few minutes after delivery. Such a bright-eyed beauty, right

off the bat (one of the benefits of going natural).

so funny to me how funkalicious babies are when they first "arrive"...big grey hands, splotchy skin, bloodshot eyes, sheer gorgeousness!

The girl had lungs right off the bat as well...she has made sure she is heard at every turn!

Happy First Birthday, Molly Christine

July 9, 2007

7 pounds, 7 ounces, 20 inches long

Such a sweet girl! We are so blessed to have you in our lives!


is she really not this small anymore?

how I'd love to sniff her baby kitten head one more time...

whoa! how could someone so soft, sweet, and pink have such a temper?

familiar faces...darling daughters!


Some stats about Molly on July 9, 2008...

She weighs 18.5 + pounds...that was as of early June. Not sure how tall BooBoo is...

She crawls like a wild woman...Gramma calls her the "Prancing Pony".

She DOES not walk..but I know of a baby boy in our church nursery who is 7 weeks younger than Mollsy...and HE WALKS. no pressure, baby.

She pops her pacifier out of her mouth as soon as she realizes that we are eating real food! She is a piglet!

She does this cute little jig with her hands when she hears music. Her little hips start to gyrate (haven't heard that word since Elvis was around, huh?)...and it's most adorable!

She is super duper smart...and super duper hands on! she has already figured out her birthday toys. I'm impressed!

She loves to be chased. There is really nothing sweeter than seeing her big brothers tell her they are gonna get her and she scoots off as fast as her little legs will crawl. The kids will crawl over her and she throws herself down on the floor, arms and legs sprawled out.

She is still such a good sleeper. Predictable, ready, lays down in her bed, gets her blankie up by her face and she will soothe herself to slumber. She sleeps right thru the night...yes, I'm bragging! :) edit: Hi. I typed this all out last night, before I went to bed. Guess who decided to get up in the middle of the night, talk, sing, drink a bottle, fuss in general? Birthday girl. I'm guessing she just wanted to celebrate her birthday a bit early with me...commemorate that it was just her and I early that July 9, 2007 morning and then again this year...it was kinda sweet but ironic that I had written about what a good little sleeper she is...

She jabbers just like Will did at this age. In fact, there are a lot of similarities between her & Willy Vanilli at this age...but that is for another day.

Molly was a BEAST compared to Pipsqueak Nora...lookit the size of her heed...it's like Sputnik. Yes, it did have it's own weather system...great noggin...heard it all. Funny how now the girls are more similarly sized!!

Aw, Mollster! What a sweet, sweet girl! Happy Birthday, precious little lady! I was just thinking of her last night - how teeny tiny she was at Piper's 3rd b'day party. They grow too fast.
