Mollie first Thanksgiving

Mollie's first Thanksgiving was spent here in NWA. I was on call at the hospital so we enjoyed time with Aunt Lindsey, Uncle Matt, and Ava. The Greer Family was there too and it was a wonderful afternoon with plenty of delicious food! Mollie looked so adorable in her headband and bow! I dont put them on her very often! Aunt Lindsey was very proud of us! We tried to get some pictures of the girls in Ava's new recliner chair but Ava wasn't too happy about it. She decided to "claw" at Mollie! She probably thought she was a babydoll or something!

We also tried out the jumperoo for Miss Mollie and it didn't go over so well. We are gonna keep trying though because Ava LOVED it!

My helper...

We have missed our friends so much over the past few months! We spent some time Saturday night with Bonnie, Thomas, Caroline, Becky, & Jett. They couldn't believe how big Mollie had gotten! Caroline is such a big help with the babies! She took the bottle from my hand and told me that "she could do it by herself." She also kept saying "Mowwie has so much pretty hair Julie!" I love my sweet Caroline!!

We have decided that these two, Mollie and Jett, are destined to be boyfriend and girlfriend at some point in their lives. Jett became very concerned when Mollie would cry which is a good sign! I told him though that if they end up together he can't complain about his in-laws to his parents because they love us so much!!! Even if they don't date, we are sure that all these babies are going to be best friends and lean on each other through the ups and downs of life!
I love this baby!

Look at that belly!!!

11 weeks old

Marme's House

We spent about 2 weeks at my mom's house in Jonesboro. These are all pictures taken during our visit!

Mollie at 8 weeks old!!

A bad case of MONO spread through out my siblings and myself so we all masked up to hold Mollie. My mom had her work cut out for her with us three and her grandbaby!

Mollie loved her pack n' play with the bear mobile! It cracked her up!

This picture melts my heart! I love this baby and I love my big sister! She, of course, gave Mollie this Madonna onesie! MK and I love Madonna!!!

10 weeks have come and gone with my baby girl and I can't believe it! We have had so many ups and downs in these 10 weeks but during it all we have enjoyed getting to know each other. I can hardly remember when Mollie was a tiny newborn! She is changing so much everyday. Here are the things that I want to remember that she is able to do at this stage.

She weighs 12lbs 5ozShe smiles and laughs at us all the time
She has this really adorable, high pitched sigh for when shes getting sleepy
She has started grabbing onto things like my shirt, my fingers, necklaces, etc...
She loves her activity mat, swing, and bouncy chair
She is eating 4-6oz at each feeding
She will sleep at least 4-5 hrs at a time and we have had one night of 7 straight hours
She started daycare last Monday and has done really well
She loves bath time but hates getting lotioned up afterwards
She hates burping over the shoulder....she will fuss big time
Her favorite thing we do is stick our tongue out and make a silly noise- she imitates us and gets so excited!

This video was taken this past Saturday morning. Mollie and I were up for breakfast. I put her in her bouncy chair and she was so happy!!! Enjoy!

I love you Dad

Then I saw a new heaven and a new earth, for the first heaven and the first earth had passed away ... I saw the Holy City, the new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God ... And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, "Now the dwelling of God is with men, and he will live with them. They will be his people, and God himself will be with them and be their God. He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away."

Revelation 21:1-4

Baby Smiles!

I can't claim that this is her first smile but it was her first smile at ME! I have reports of a smile to Papaw last weekend. I witnessed smiling at Uncle Chad. And then on Monday, she smiled at me! It was such a sweet moment for me. I kinda screamed in excitement which made her mad but then she quickly went back to smiling. Luckily, Aunt Karen was nearby with my iPhone to capture it for us! It is now Wednesday and I have been privy to many sweet sweet smiles from my baby girl!

Mollie is 6 weeks old today and I just can't believe it. I have always heard parents say "I can't remember my life without her." I always thought that was an odd statement but completely understand now. I have only known her 6 short weeks but feel like she has always been with me. It truly is a love that you can't understand until you experience it.

This is how I found Mollie napping on her daddy! She was completely sprawled out and loving it!

Activity Time!!

We love our activity mat!! I'm sure Mollie can't really enjoy all it has to offer yet but she sure loves the mirror shaped like a sun!! She is starting to look at lights and things that make noise. We have a little stuffed bear that laughs and she loves it! She is starting to follow my voice with her eyes and it makes my heart melt!! I have about three weeks left at home with her and I want to enjoy every minute of it!

Oh how we love Fall!

This past Tuesday morning Mollie and I spent some time with good friends at the Fayetteville Farmers Market! It was a beautiful fall day and we had a really good time! We were invited by our dear friends Bonnie and Nellie. Of course, Caroline and baby Thomas joined us! It was Mollie and Thomas' first trip to the farmers market. Caroline however is a farmer market pro and couldn't wait to buy some tomatoes and green beans! Caroline was so cute walking around and commenting on all the vendors selling their items. She is such a smart little girl and I love that I have been able to watch her mature and grow over the past 2.5 years!

Mollie helped me pick out some yummy food! We bought fresh green beans, bell pepper, and squash! Now I just have to figure out how to cook it all!!!

Caroline enjoying one of her tomatoes she bought. I think she may have eaten the whole bag before we left the market!!

Yes- we put both babies in Mollie's carrier and no Baby Thomas didn't enjoy it but we got the picture right?!?! I loved Thomas pumpkin hat! So cute!!

Caroline and "Baby Mowwee". Caroline is such a good helper with the babies!

Thank you Lifegroup!!!

Our Mt. Comfort Lifegroup sent us this edible arrangement in honor of Mollie's arrival! It was so cute and very yummy!! Thank you to such a special group!

Vintage Clothes!

Here is a picture of Mollie's coming home outfit! It is the same dress that I wore home from the hospital in 1983! As a gift at one of my showers, my mother gave me a box of my clothes to hand-me-down to Mollie. I realize now I should have gotten a better picture of the actual outfit but the whole process of getting home was pretty stressful! Picture taking wasn't at the forefront of my mind!

We have really enjoyed showing Mollie off to all our friends and family! I tried to take a picture of her with all of our guests but I know I missed some of you! Enjoy the pictures because we sure enjoyed seeing you all meet our precious baby!
