4 months

I know I say it every month but I can't believe how time has flown by. You are already 4 months old and growing up way to fast! You are now 15 lbs. 9 oz and 25 inches long. We call you our little chunky monkey. I love the way your cheeks look like they are full of marbles and how your little buddah belly sticks out! You are so fun right now. You love to laugh, squeal and give that shy little smile when someone new talks to you. You love to sit up in your Bumbo and on anyones lap, you are still a little bobblehead but have gotten much better with your head control. We had to put a whole storage bin of clothes away that you have grown out of! You love to play under your play gym and look at yourself in the mirror. You love to talk to all your toys and even to Jack. You have found your voice and are not afraid to shout!
We started rice cereal today, not quite sure how that is going to work! You ended up with more on your face and bib than in your mouth! I know you will get better, you love to eat!
You had your first cold this month. You had a fever for a day and a little cough. You handled it great, although your mom was a mess. Luckily it didn't last long and you were back to your happy self in a few days.
One highlight of the month was dinner with your poodle aunts! You got to meet Auntie Sarah from Chicago and hang out with little Joesph! His mom and I are hoping for a romance one day! Fingers crossed!

I love you more and more each day little girl and thank God for you every night! I couldn't think of anyone I would rather spend every day with!

Christmas and some extras

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!
Well, I know it is far into the new year, but I am finally able to update this sad little blog! Our holidays were just wonderful! They started with a visit from my Grandpa Paul, Molly's great grandpa. This was the first time that Molly and him have met and it was love at first sight. Grandpa was so excited to meet Molly Joan, who is named after his wife, my late Grandma Joan. We spent Christmas Eve at my parents house and Molly was mesmerized by the lights on the Christmas tree. She is such a chunky monkey!

Christmas morning we opened gifts at our house first and then headed off to my parents to meet the rest of my family. The one thing I wanted for Molly this Christmas was red and white striped footed pajamas. I looked everywhere and finally found some at the Gap. Add a santa bib and we were all set!

Present opening at my parents is always a long ordeal and she passed out just as we got started. Jeff held her and I had to open most of his gifts for him. He said he didn't mind, he had the best present already! Love those two!

Jeff''s family came to visit after Christmas, but the bad parent that I am, I didn't take any pictures! :) That is the short of it, I figure Christmas will be a little crazier next year! I can't wait!

Molly saw her first snow here in Texas! Brrr.. it was cold, but she sure looked cute in her hat!
