birthday pics

Here are a couple pictures we took last night to document Molly turning six months!

Notice me holding down her hand to keep her from chewing it in the picture.

After she went to bed, we had some friends over to celebrate my 25th birthday... We even had a beer pong table. With a tablecloth over it. ("honey, these sawhorses are seriously ugly" - JC got a kick out of that) (oh the joys of marital compromise!)

Molly didn't wake up at all - we were so pleased! And we went to bed AFTER MIDNIGHT. Yes, we are WILD!!

It's molly's half birthday!

Today Molly is six months old! It's hard to believe she's getting so old. Parenthood keeps getting better and better. We love this little girl so much!!
Right now she's playing in her bumbo seat:

back in TX

We returned to Dallas Sunday afternoon and have been getting back to the swing of things. It was a great visit with family!!

Molly had some huge first experiences:

- Her FIRST volleyball match! Pope beat Marietta so badly in the state sectionals, it was rather boring. But my sister Mary played awesome. She leads the state of GA in kills and was already named all-area player of the year for the second year. I'm very proud of my little sis!
here's a four second shot of her*:

- Poppy drew buckets with Molly! (for the non-Hoey, this is a very important tradition. I'm sure there are a hundred babies that have pictures with poppy drawing buckets... but we one-upped them all and got a video!)

Pictures of our trip to come soon... (and more videos!)

*case in point - the game was such a blow-out I had time to fool around taking videos!

hello from georgia!

Molly and I are visiting my family for a long weekend. We're with Aunt Mary, Boo Boo, Paw Paw and great grandparents Mubber and Poppy!

Some exciting news: baby Sawyer Dean Scheffler is here! I got the text in the middle of the night. Doesn't this picture just warm your heart?! He's beautiful!!

I never knew I was so funny.

A note on Molly's hair: It is rather silly these days! Curly on top and straighter on the sides. With a bald-ish spot on the back where she rubs it in her crib. And it's all grown in blonde underneath but some is still dark. It looks like she has highlights (or lowlights??). That doesn't mean it's not perfectly adorable, of course (especially when tamed with a bow!).

It's about time for some pictures!

We had an appointment for the rest of Molly's four month vaccinations (we spread them out again), and got a weight update! Our sweet little girl is 13lbs 14oz after eating - almost a pound more than a month ago, so she is growing even if she's not a sumo baby! :) She got two shots - she didn't cry at all during the first one - so brave. This is her in her carseat afterwards.

Another highlight was playing with her friend Reese (and mom Anna) on Tuesday while I volunteered at the Free Market luncheon. She was thrilled to play with Reese (who calls her "MAW-EE!!"). (A big thank-you to Anna for watching her!) As you can see, she's very excited:

Here are some more pictures from this week:
