Molly...


is our one and only daughter, which will most likely stay that way!

turned 2 on Sunday and I'm still recovering from the shock that she is now 2!

is our little girl who is no longer a baby and that makes me sad at how fast she has grown up!

is in the 8% for weight, her highest percentile ever for weight, and is in the 85% for height! Wow!

LOVES her blanket, and is so adorable carrying it around with her! She actually stood at the dryer the other day waiting for it to dry!

has a new favorite activity is playing with water in the sink and making the biggest mess possible! She goes running towards any sound of water running!

loves to load and unload the dishwasher! She is our big helper and does a great job putting away the silverware!

enjoys sitting on anything, the table in the kitchen, arm of the couch, Will's swing, Will, any one's head if they're laying down, she seems very comfortable any where!

has curly hair on the bottom, and long, straight hair on the top of her head. It's so beautiful and I love putting her bows in her hair everyday!
has reached the age where some might call it "The Terrible Twos." I try to have a more positive outlook on life and I just call this age a challenge but still fun! We're working through the challenges Molly and her brothers give us daily, she just seems to give us a few more challenges than her brothers!

is such a great talker, I love her voice and our conversations! Her new thing to say is, "Mommy, it's OK." It's adorable!

is very shy and doesn't talk much except when she is at home. Once she is comfortable with the people, she's talkative self, but it takes time! It's so funny seeing her be shy when I know how she is at home! Not surprising, her mommy and daddy are exactly the same way!

loves to say "Ta da!"

must bring a purse with her whenever we go in the car, some items found in her purse are: a phone, (fake) money, a bracelet or five, a book, lipstick (also fake), bow, snack, light stick, Kleenex, keys, and a CD.

is a great little sister who loves her big brother more than he will ever know! She wants to do everything he does and more, as long as she can be with him!

is a great big sister and loves helping with her little brother, especially with tummy time! She picks out his diapers every diaper change and loves playing in his crib!

loves to read! Her favorites are Goodnight Moon, Mommy Hugs, Daddy Hugs, and Playful Little Puppies to name a few!

loves to sing and dance, but gets embarrassed if we're watching, unless Jack is with her!

is not a picky eater, but is at the stage of spitting out food, throwing food, or spitting out our food and then throwing it. This is a very good example of a challenge!

is so smart! She has a wonderful memory, knows how to sing her ABC's, and counts to 10 (a few numbers are randomly missing each time, but knows her number up to 10)!

is sleeping in her big girl bed and loving it, especially jumping on it!

loves polka dots, hence the polka dot birthday party!
is so loved and we are so blessed to have her with us!!

Mr. 4 Month Old!


Will turned 4 months on the 4th!!! How is he getting so grown-up? We went to the doctor on Friday and he weighs 14lbs and he's in the 29% of all babies his age...wait, what? He's huge!! Will weighs 6 pounds less than Molly and she's almost 2, but 70% of babies his age weigh more? Ok! He is 23 3/4 inches long and his head is 16 inches! He got 3 shots and the roto-virus oral vaccine. He's a trooper!! We're starting rice cereal this week!!
Will is also rolling over from his back to tummy, but somehow forgot how to roll from his tummy to his back. Interesting. He rolls to his tummy while he's sleeping, wakes up, and won't go back to sleep until I roll him back. Sunday night between 11:30 12:30 was spent me going in to his room every 10 minutes to roll him back over and pop the pacifier back in. Finally at 12:30, I let him cry it out and figure it out on his own. He cried from 12:30 to 2:40. I went to check on him and he finally fell asleep on his tummy! Yea!! He slept exactly 1 hour like that! Naps are the same way! I don't know what to do!!

Happy little boy!!
Looking at Jack and Molly!
Love him!
This is Molly right after waking up from her nap. She loves Will's swing, can you tell?!!
The best big brother!! He was doing tummy time with Will! He's getting so grown up!
Tummy time, not rolling over!!
Right before bedtime!
Some Mommy love!! Love the KU shirt!

Getting ready for bed!! Rock Chalk!!

Wow!!

So, I just read my last post and I have to apologize! I went a little crazy there at the end, I'm so sorry!! But, truthfully, it was all true and I have no regrets!!

A quick little update...

*Molly had her first mommy and me gymnastics class this morning and LOVED it!! That girl has zero fear! She went running at full speed to the pit with all the foam blocks and jumped in so fast, laughing the whole way!! A very special treat to our special girl, she was in HEAVEN!!
*Will turns 4 months tomorrow! How?!!! Why?!!! It's going so fast!! I'll post 4 month pictures and his stats from the doctor after his appointment on Friday!
*Will is laughing (A-DOR-A-BLE!!!!!!!!!)
*Will is rolling in all directions, but has forgotten how to roll from his tummy to back. He just panics after awhile and won't roll over! Last night, he woke himself up because he rolled on his tummy and panicked!!
*Jack is going to play t-ball this spring!!
*I'm enrolling Jack in our church preschool, with enrollment starting next week. Cross your fingers, toes and say a prayer that we get in...it's a little tough! We love his current preschool but want to go to our church. We'll find out on the 17th!

Last, but not least, two updates!!!
1. The size 6's fit!! Good-bye 8's!!!!
2. The mustache is disappearing! It's not hair, it's darken skin on my upper lip but it's slowly fading! Eric told me last night he couldn't see it and he is by far my most critical critic!

Later!
