If you haven't figured it out yet...I'm big on anniversaries, numbers, and how they intertwine. For instance...how cool would it have been to have THIS birthday (10/10/10 at 10:10)???
We've had a BIG anniversary around here. Our sweet Molly was born one year ago on the 23rd. How fast time flies. I have to remind myself to stop with the busy things in life and enjoy her now while she's still a baby. The dishes can wait for a minute. Sitting her on my lap and watching her learn new things like how to say book, moo like a cow can't and will be missed out on if I distract myself. She truly is such a joy and so happy. The moment she came into this world will be one I will never forget. That dark brown curly hair, the squished up face, her popeye look every time she ate. She ate and slept and snuggled...all 7 lbs 7 oz.
Now...12 months later...she's:
18 lbs 7 oz and 27 3/4 inches long--a little bitty but a loud personality
Saying: Momma, Da Da, Book, Ba Ba, Baby, Moo, and Ruff Ruff
Sleeping 2 2-hour naps and 12 hours at night
Loves books, singing (pretty well if I may brag a little), her baby, Mickey Mouse, giraffes, and Abby (from Sesame Street), and emptying out EVERTHING she can get her hands on.
Doesn't like to be cuddled-would rather explore the world freely but will sit in your lap if there's a book around (or a computer!)
Loves to eat: CARBS! Waffles and muffins are her fav as well as bananas, sweet potatos, green beans, and spinach.
What a perfect little blessing you are in our lives Molly.
