|this just might be my favorite Molly pic|
of all time.
|ohh, wait, maybe this one...awww.|
|the open mouth, toothless grin.|
|she wasn't even due for a little less than two months. I have a short waist. I become all baby.|
I loved being pregnant with her.
|our girls and the daddies they resembled so amazingly. (yet still pretty in all of their girliness)|
|what? who me?|
|this may have been the time that she earned the nickname "Fatty Patty"|
|she was chubbalish|
|ohh, this age is precious. love my girl|
|she was teething. on my face. I miss this.|
|This was when she became extremely pesky. doll.|
|sweetie climby girl|
|magazine destroyer...Grandma said it was OK.|
|Remember the hair cut of 2010? wow...it was really so short. hence, the sundress.|
Sorry for the drought on my beloved blog. It's kinda carrying over from the drought we are enduring here in the great Midwest.
I have so many pics that I need to download from the balloon launch (which was AMAZING, by the way!!) but that will have to wait. We had people from different areas of the nifty fifty sending up balloons along with us and I want to put some of those on here. Let me just say, we had about 100 people out at Jack's grave...the support and love, prayers and care were (good) overwhelming and so appreciated.
This week has been a whirlwind of fun, picnics, swimming and fellowshipping. And tomorrow, bright and early, Ethan and I will head north with David to work at the INDOT facility for 8 hours. Gotta help work off the debt I've incurred and do what I can to be responsible. That's our fun for tomorrow, and honestly, it will be fun! it is fun to work on David's crew.
maybe not in the 106 degree heat but hey....
As for these beautiful pix of our darling #5 above? Her 5th birthday is on Monday. Hard to believe that she got here 5 years ago. She has been such a blessed addition to this family and a joy to me, especially, in the past year. To watch her grow up and absorb the life that is going on around her is precious. She can be sorta moody but she nixes it quickly. My goal is to make sure she is not forgotten, that she doesn't get away with things that the olders never got away with. That has been a challenge...these big kids really work hard to hold us accountable and David and I will admit, to anyone, that we aren't as "on it" with her and Levi, as we may have been with the olders.
She is active, has a gymnast's body and agility. When she looks at you, with her bright blue eyes and freckles, you could almost melt. She is really into acting like a cat. She has very recently learned how to swim with JUST a life jacket. (and not a life jacket and 2 or 3 tubes). She will be starting Kindergarten in August and she is very excited. I think she will teach circles around me. She is awesome. We are all so glad to have her here.
Happy Birthday, Molly Christine Young!!
