Molly's 1 Year Update

I FINALLY got around to taking Molly to her 1 year appointment! Now I can write about her 1 year stats!

Weight: 21 lbs
Height:30 in (75% WOW)
Teeth: 7 with the 8th one making it's torturous way in
Words: Mama and Dada. She also meow's and barks. Does that count?
Favorite Food: Cheese and yogurt
Molly is a very active 1 year old! Her favorite things do do are play outside and follow her big brother around. She tries to do everything he does. I feel like she is a lot crazier than Cason was at her age. She loves to climb on anything she can. Then (if we aren't watching closely) she will dive off head first. She just picks herself up and keeps going! Molly loves to wear shoes! When I put her sandals on her she prances around smiling and showing off. She also likes to try to put on my shoes. I think we are in trouble when she gets older!  One of Molly's favorite games right now is to pick up everything she sees and bring it to me. What a helpful little girl!

Molly is officially done with eating therapy! She will eat ALMOST anything you put in front of her. She will even ask, in her own little way, for more food! She out eats Cason most of the time now! Molly is completely off formula! WHOO HOO! We are saving $45-$50 a week now! We are working on getting her to drink out of a sippy cup and not a bottle. She loves to drink water out of a cup but is SLOWLY getting used to drinking her milk out of one. It will be awesome when I don't have to fix or wash bottles anymore!

Happy Easter!

I am so thankful that our Savior gave up his life to save ours!

We had a good Easter. We had an egg hunt at my parents house with the cousins and went to church this morning. The Easter bunny also paid a visit to Cason and Molly!

1 Year Old!

Dear Molly,
March 28, 2011 was one of the best days of my life. I was nervous about meeting you and worried about what kind of mother I would be to my little girl. I had no idea that the first time I saw you that I would love you SO much. You were so little. You had the tinyest hands and feet and super skinny long legs. The nurses told me that you would be a ballarina one day!
Now that you are offically 1 year old I miss holding the little bitty you. But I am enjoying every minute of watching you grow and change. You are every thing that I prayed for in a daughter. You are sweet, laid back, and funny. You make me laugh every day. My prayer for you now is that you will continue to grow up to be a woman who loves and follows the Lord. I pray that you will be kind, loving, and patient.
Molly I love you more and more every day and I am so proud to have a daughter like you.
