Mom gave me strawberries for my birthday breakfast and they were a wonderful birthday treat! I even smeared banana all in my hair when mom wasn't looking and it was so fun!!! I love birthdays already. -M
Happy first birthday Molly, we love you so much!!! Mommy & Daddy
Hello! Last week Molly and I went to Florida tuesday with my family for mary's spring break. We spent time with my mom's parents (mimi and papa doc) and aunt Katie, uncle victor and cousin soosha (a very faithful blog reader!)
This was while JC was at the masters. We drove back to Atlanta on Friday and then my dad and I joined JC in Augusta for Saturday and Sunday. We had a great time, and Molly had a lot of new experiences! First time at the pool and beach - both of which she was rather apprehensive about.
She didn't like the cold water and the sand was too scratchy. She did warm up to splashing in the water and playing in the sand by the end of the trip, but for the most part she was being a little prissy, and it was pretty funny.
I have a ton of pics I need to download to picasa, but these are some from my phone!
Sorry it's been a while! We have had quite the week. JC was in a car wreck Tuesday where someone swerved and hit him. His truck flipped, flew up the road, was completely totalled, and he walked away with two stitches in his arm and minimal soreness. It was absolutely a miracle that he was fine and we are thanking God non-stop for his protection!
Molly took her first steps the very same day! It is precious to watch her learn how to walk. This is, as many things are to Molly (and her proud parents), very thrilling and we have no shortage of squealing at our house!
I flew the coop for the first time post-Molly this past weekend (not without a few tearful breakdowns)! I was in NYC for a bachelorette party for one of my college bffs Jenn (pic is the only one I have on my phone, but trust me there are a bazillion pictures to document it thoroughly). The only thing less than fabulous and sophisticated was all the pumping I had to do. (I know, and yes breastfeeding is awesome and worth it). If TMI, sorry. Anyway, we stayed at the Ritz courtesy of jenn's amazing mom Saturday night, went to some fabulous places in the west village, soho, lower east side. What a blast!
Molly took a bottle while I was gone!!! To some that may sound silly because don't all babies drink bottles? But no, Molly had been refusing since December. But once I was gone she caught back on pretty immediately, or so I've been told. This was a HUGE answer to prayer.
I am actually on the plane headed home right now, and that's why I have time to compose this. We're meeting up with all the crawfords for an Easter celebration this afternoon! (picture is with great-grandmother, from last week when they came over to play)
Happy Easter to everyone. Though we live in a broken world with things like scary car wrecks, Jesus is risen!!
