Molly world traveler...




Molly is nearly 18 months old now, and she has changed so much since the last time I posted about her.
She and I just spent two weeks in Alabama with my family. She is quite the world traveler after our journey. She experienced flight cancellations, plane delays, sleeping in airports, massive lineups, sleeping on planes, and even lost luggage!! She even has her own passport. I think she faired quite well for a child her age. I am very proud of her.

She had lots of good Southern food, swung on a porch swing, rocked in a rocking chair, and even played an antique piano....oh, and I nearly forgot, she learned to play football if there is anyone from the SEC reading this that wants to draft her. :)

She is starting to learn more words too, and even tries to sing. Her new thing is EIEIEIO.

I guess now that we are home, where it is really COLD, and snowy that we both will have to learn to deal with traveling in the snow. :)

Growing, and Growing...

Well, Molly is super busy being a toddler these days, being nearly 16 months old. She is climbing on couches, and stairs, and is quite the mimic. She loves to just go. I think she would walk from here to Alabama if I let her.

She is over 25 lbs now, and has nearly 12 teeth. She is starting her terrible twos as well... She has the cutest personality, and is a sweetie...though she has her evil moments. We are so amazed by her everyday.

She took her first airplane trip a little over two weeks ago to Vancouver. We had to go get her a passport for our big trip to Alabama next month. She is going to be quite the world traveler before she is 2! I didn't even get on an airplane until I was in my 20's! It will be an interesting trip to say the least. She will get to spend American Thanksgiving with our family in Alabama. She is going to be so spoiled when we get back.

Busy being a toddler...

Molly is 14 1/2 months now. She is growing so fast, and loving being more independent. I am totally convinced that she will be a track star or a swimmer. She has the strongest little legs, and she uses them constantly. I was bathing her last night, and she kicked her legs as fast as she could, making a huge splashing mess! She is discovering new things everyday. She is starting to dance a little bit to music, and she will spin around, and walk in circle trying to make herself dizzy. She has also had some mini tantrums. She is expressing her feelings much more now, and she lets you know in a heartbeat when she is unhappy.
I had her in splash pool the other week, and she just loved it!

Molly has dots...

Well, Molly hasn't felt well the last few days. She has had some side effects from her MMR immunization, and has had fever, along with what is a very weak, and mild case of non-infectious measles. She has little red dots,here, and there. It wasn't totally unexpected, as they told us that it could happen. She is over the fever now, and just has dots. She is feeling a bit better, though she is teething as well on top of things, so still not perfect. I have made a dr's appt. for her because she has had a cough, and some congestion for the past month. When I took her in two weeks ago, the dr. wanted me to bring her back in if she wasn't over it in 1-2 more weeks. I think Molly actually has some allergies. She seems to keep a runny nose most of the time, and recently she has been rubbing her nose, and she sometimes has red eyes. So it might be dust?? Anyhow, we will see what the dr. says.

Anyhow, she is still not walking completely, she doesn't seem to have the confidence in the house like she had in the park that day. It is just easier to crawl, but we encourage her everyday. She is growing like crazy, and her personality is the cutest. She is a headstrong little girl, and very tenacious. :)

Molly updates....

Well, Molly has now officially been a year old for one week. She hasn't done a whole lot of walking since the big day last week. She still does onesies, and twosies, but nothing big. she is getting more confident, so I suspect she will be running marathons soon. :)

Molly has had a few culinary experiences as of late, and it is amazing she is even my child as I was such a picky eater, and still am to a degree.

Greg has her eating raw onion, raw tomato, and even raw bell pepper. She likes pickled beets, and she has pretty much had a salad minus the lettuce, and dressing. :)

She had her first taste of some serious sugar with her birthday cake last week, and last night she had her first taste of ice cream. She really liked the ice cream. We met Greg's former boss/CEO and his wife for dinner last night. They are traveling around Canada, and were passing through our area. When Molly was 5 months old, Bill said he wanted to be the first one to give her ice cream. He had given all his grandkids their first, and it was such a delightful experience for him. So, it was perfect timing. I told him that we purposefully didn't have ice cream at her party so that he could be the first one to give her ice cream. He was delighted!

We forgot our camera, but they had theirs, and said they would send us the pictures.

Molly is really developing the cutest personality. She is so funny, and she has the cutest expressions. Since she was really small, we have been playing a game with her where we take our finger, and beep her nose. She loves this, and will be highly dissapointed to find out the nose doesn't really make a beeping sound. :)
What is so special about it now, is that she will actually lean into your finger to beep her nose. So if you are moving your finger as to beep her nose, she will push her nose closer to touch your finger. It is so darn CUTE!!

Anyhow that is the latest. :)

Molly Walks for the first time!!!!




We went to the park on Tuesday, and Molly decides she is going to show us all a new trick!! :) It was so exciting seeing her take those major steps for the first time. She had been taking onesies, and twosies for a few days....it will be a full scale run here before we know it!!!! :)

Tuesday, June 12, 2007

Dora & Diego!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Molly has begun to recognize things she has seen on TV in her everyday world. More so the last few days it has been Dora the Explorer ,and her cousin Diego. Every time she sees either one on TV, or elsewhere she squeals with happiness. It isn't like she sees them on TV that often, maybe for short periods once a day or every other day.

It started the other day when I turned on the TV, and Diego was on. She absolutely went bananas, and squealed with happiness. Then I was in Walmart with her on Friday, and we were in the toy section. We passed something that had Dora on the box. She squealed with happiness once again.

She got a Dora ball for her birthday, and a Dora book as well. Those were the only birthday gifts that she actually responded too...she just squealed with happiness.

I read to her last night from the Dora book, and had laid it on her rocking chair in her room. This morning when I went to get her up to change her, she saw the book, and immediately wanted it. She cried,and wouldn't let me change her until I gave her the book to look at. Oh, boy....Houston we could have a problem! :)

I guess we will have to hide the books, and things with Dora & Diego on them when there are diapers to be changed, baths to be had, or bed time.

I am so glad she hasn't be exposed to Barney, or Teletubbies!!!! :)

Things could be worse, at least she will learn bits of Spanish. :)

Happy 1st Birthday Molly!!!!!! :)


It is hard to believe at this moment 1 year ago, I was lying in a hospital bed with an epidural in my back
awaiting for this little bundle of sweetness to emerge! Officially as of 3:04pm on June 11th, Molly came into our world.
We had Molly's party today, and it was great time. She had a blast. I had only wished she was able to run, and play with other kids. She is getting there though.

Sunday, June 03, 2007

First Steps!!!

Molly took her first steps today. It was pretty exciting. It is hard to believe that in one week she will be 1 year old. I started her on the transition to whole milk today. Our baby is soon going to be a toddler. Where did the time go?

Tuesday, May 29, 2007

Molly has a cold me thinks...

She has had a cough for the last few days, now she has a runny nose. She doesn't seem any worse for wear though. If it weren't for those two things you wouldn't even know she was sick at all. I hope we don't get it this time...fat chance, eh? :)

Sunday, May 27, 2007

Through the night...

Molly has slept through the night all this week, with the exception of one night I accidentally woke her up. She is sleeping from around 8 pm until 6-7 a.m. or later. I can't believe it!

Molly finally graduated to a bigger car seat today, and is forward facing now. She looks so grown in her new car seat. She was happy, and excited! In less than two weeks our baby will 1 year old! It is so hard to believe that the year has gone by so quickly.

We are planning a birthday party for her at one of the Provincial Parks here in Quesnel. It should be really nice. We are going to make her a cupcake cake. I am not sure what the design will be, but I am sure it will be great.

Tuesday, May 22, 2007

Nearly 12 hours straight!!!!

Well, Molly decided she wasn't going to wake up all night last night...at 7:40a.m. this morning I decided she needed to get up. It had been over 12 hours since she had anything to eat, and nearly 12 hours since she had her diaper changed. I had been keeping an eye on her through our video monitor, and knew she was ok. She had made her rounds around the crib.

She was so cute when we went in there laying on her side with her hands together under her face. Yesterday after getting her morning bottle at 7a.m. she fell back to sleep, as did Mommy, and Daddy...2 1/2 hours later Mommy wakes up, and Molly is still asleep. I had to go wake her then too.

I guess she is going through a growth spurt. She usually wakes up at least once during the night mostly, and then mostly she has woken up by 5 or 6 a.m. for a feeding. Sometimes she bypasses the middle of the night waking, and gets up around 5 or 6 six for a bottle, then goes back to sleep. Well, today was a whole lot different. I wished I knew what triggers her patterns.

Her sitter took her out yesterday for 3 hours while I cleaned house. I guess the walk yesterday really wore her out.

Well, that beats all...after I wrote this entry Molly fell asleep in her crib after having her bottle...I decided I was still tired too, so I laid back down as well, and fell asleep.
Molly woke up at 10 a.m.! Of course I did too, and that is after she woke me up....lazy girls! :)

Molly has passed the second test of being a Southern girl.... Molly had biscuits for the first time over the long weekend. She likes them. I gave her little bits of the soft inside, and little bits of ham. She really liked that. I told her that her Grandma, and Grandpa Jerry will be proud. :)

Well, Spring has definitely arrived...we have all be sneezing around here. I am afraid that Molly has inherited her Mommy and Daddy's allergies to the Spring.

The pollen has been coating everything for about a week now...very late coming here. It is probably all about gone back in 'Bama now.

MOLLY HAT!!!!!!!!!!!



Greg, and Molly love to play this game where he puts Molly on his head, and wears her as a hat. I then say "MOLLY HAT!!!" She loves it. Her daddy can really make her belly giggle. :)

Molly is 11 months old today!!!


It is hard to believe in one month our baby girl will be one year old! It is crazy. :)
She is growing so fast. She still isn't walking yet, but she is progressing. She just doesn't have the confidence yet to let go of things. She is eating finger foods better, and eating stuff like cheerios, and goldfish really well. She is a speed demon at crawling. She is so cute, I haven't taken any new pictures of her sleeping, and I did have one of her sleeping with her butt in the air, but I deleted it by mistake. That is her favorite way to sleep. Her little knees will be so red the next day from being on them all night. It is so cute. :)

Tuesday, May 01, 2007

Molly is 10 months 2 weeks, and 6 days old!


I can't believe that in about 5 weeks my baby will be 1 year old! Where has the year gone? She is changing so much, and she amazes us with something new everyday. She has such personality, and you can see how smart she is. We are very proud of our little one. She isn't walking yet, but she soon will be, she's working on it. :)

Monday, April 23, 2007

Yeah! Teeth!


Molly finally cut those top two teeth!! We have been waiting, and waiting, and waiting it seems like. So now, even though they aren't all the way in, she now has 4 teeth! Now, I have to look up which ones come next. Molly didn't like her dinner tonight. I had made her sweet potatoes,and I mashed up some black eyed peas, and mixed it in her sweet potatoes. She was not a happy camper at all. I don't think it helped that she was a bit tired. So, I won't be doing that again. :)
Here is a picture of Molly from today. She is getting so big~!

DIAPER EXPLOSION!!!!!!!!!!! EWWWWW!!!!!!

10 1/2 months of luck just ended!!!! We have been really fortunate not to have any explosive diapers with Molly. Our luck has ended, and the days of complete grossness are about to begin! :P
The real fun is about to start!! :)

Molly & Pico


Molly loves Pico, and she will try everything she can to get to him. He really is motivation for her. :)

Dressy Bessie

Now that is a name, I don't think I have thought about in 30 years. I was talking to Greg about getting Molly a toy with zippers, buttons, and snaps on it. She loves zippers, and I thought something like that would be ideal for her to play with. Then in the archives of my mind...the name Dressy Bessie popped into my head. I had forgotten I had a doll as a little girl that had a zipper, snaps, buttons, ribbons, and buckles on it, so that I could practice to do those things. Her name was Dressy Bessie. Now, searching the internet, I have found very little about this doll, except that it was made by Playskool around 1976. I have found a couple of pictures, but it appears that she had different styles. It even looks like they have an updated model...though I don't think it is made anymore. I have to go take a look on Playskool's website to see.
Here is a link to an ebay auction picture

New Milestone!

I took Molly to a drop in playgroup today, and while we were there she stood alone for like 5 seconds....now she had on her sneakers, but still she did it. I was so excited.
I stood her up, and let her go, and she just stayed there. YEAH!!!! :)
Our baby will be walking soon. It is such a great feeling. :)

Sunday, April 01, 2007

Messy, Messy...

I decided to try dry toast with Molly today. Well, as I suspected it got crumbled up, and ended up everywhere but in her mouth. She will put things in her mouth on her own, but if you give her something to put her in her mouth she will just play with it. Go figure? :) Silly baby!

Baby Gate time...

Well, Greg and I purchased our first baby gate yesterday. Molly is getting pretty efficient at her little inch worm crawl. She crawled from her bedroom to the hall yesterday. I was right with her, but we decided that it was for sure time. The other day she surprised us by crawling a good 6 feet from where I had her playing in the living room. I was cooking dinner, and watching her...well, to my surprise I turned my head to see that she was still playing where I left her, and she wasn't there. She had crawled out of view! We were so surprised. She is growing so fast!

Except we still don't have any upper TEETH!!!!

Saturday, March 24, 2007

Teething!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Poor Molly is having a hard time with these next teeth. She is suffering for it pretty badly this go around...drool diarrhea, diaper rash, fever, and waking up at night, and of course the usual buckets of drool. I hope she cuts those teeth soon, her little bottom is in overtime. :( She cut her first tooth at 6 months...now it is 3 months later. It is about time. She will probably be one of these kids that cuts a few, and then goes awhile. Lovely! :)

Thursday, March 22, 2007

Molly is headstrong that is for sure!

Well, there is no doubt about it...Molly is stubborn, and she gets it from me. She is very persistent, determined and curious as well. I hope that she keeps up the persistence, and determination for some aspects of her life. :) Her newest thing is that she does not want in her exersaucer much...She will even draw her legs up to avoid being put in it. She is a tricksy little one. :)

Molly Updates...

The day after Molly turned 9 months, we had a small incident. She decided to take a tumble off our bed, and hit her face. She scuffed up her nose, but she is no worse for wear. I had put her on our bed, and surrounded her with pillows thinking that this would corral her long enough for me to run down the stair for her pacifier. I was sadly mistaken. I heard the thud as I was bounding back up the stairs. It was that quick. I felt horrible, and I know she did. I guess I have learned my lesson on that, and she won't be left unattended where she could hurt herself. Since I started this draft on the 14th...her nose is completely healed. The scab fell of two or three days ago.

She is really talkative these days. She really gives Greg, and I a talking too sometimes. I wonder what she is getting on to us about?
She is so expressive these days too. We are easily amused with her cute expressions, and antics. :)

She is definitely teething again, and is trying hard to push some more teeth through. We haven't had any new teeth in a couple of months or more. She was very fussy, and whiny today. the whining really bugs me. It drains my energy, and patience faster than anything. I just wished I knew what I could do to ease her discomfort. I gave her some Tylenol, and I cuddled with her on our bed, and she fell asleep in my arms.

She weighs close to 20lbs now, and growing everyday. She is in a size 12 months in most things already! :) She has been pretty much on the mark for her clothing sizes up until she became 6 months old.

Molly is clapping, and waving now. She is so cute when we go out, she will wave, and smile at people as we go by. She is such a social baby. :)

I am going to try to find her a new physician next week, so we can get her a check up. She hasn't had one since she was 6 months. We have had a very healthy baby. She has only had two colds thus far.
She is still trying to crawl, but is inch worming it for now. :)

That is about it for now.

Molly is 9 months old today!!


She has been on this planet about 2 weeks longer than she was in the womb! :)

Molly tries grits for the first time...

Molly shuns her Southern Heritage!!! To say the least grits are not a hit at this time. They were just plain old instant cheese this time,with no butter or salt for obvious reasons.

I guess we will try again when she can have them the right way :) The video is priceless! :)

YUM!

Molly Claps

Tuesday, March 06, 2007

How Sweet !!!

This afternoon Molly, and I went for a walk downtown. I decided to stop in the Shopper's Drugmart because Molly has some chaffing on her face from her being sick, and the cold weather. I was waiting in line to talk to the pharmacist, and I was talking to this nice lady. All of a sudden, Molly waved to her. It was the cutest, sweetest thing. She is sooo smart! :)

A new milestone!!!!

Well, a lot has happened in the time since I last posted. Molly is crawling more or less. She is still not crawling on all fours yet, but she is getting there.

Yesterday was a very big day! I had to go downstairs to retrieve my cellphone, and I put Molly in her crib in a seated position.

I was gone no more than 40 seconds, and when I came back up the stairs, and went into her room. She was standing in her crib holding on to the side!!!! I screamed with happiness, and she smiled from ear to ear. She knew she had done something good. :)

It was very exciting. She has shown a little interest on sitting on her knees with help, and pulling up on me, but nothing like this, and definitely not by herself!

Anyhow, we are getting unpacked, and settled. I hope to have a whole bunch of new things to post soon. She is at a very exciting age. :)

Baby Einstein pays off!!!

Well, I hate to say poor Molly has had to watch her Baby Einstein dvd's way more than usual as of late. We have just had to have some way to entertain so we can pack. Well, tonight before she went to bed. She waved at Greg. Greg said, "wave".... and she did it again. Way cool!!!

Mahna-Mahna Molly

Molly with her Valentine goodie from Daddy. :)

Molly is 8 months old!

Molly turned 8 months old yesterday. It is hard to believe. We are in the middle of packing, and getting ready to move 9 hours away. We will be back soon, and Molly will be a bit older. She changes so much everyday.
Cheers!

Monday, February 05, 2007

On the Move...

If we had one of those walkers like when I was a baby, Molly would be all over the house. They are banned here in Canada, so we just have the exersaucer, which is basically the same concept except without wheels. If I have Molly sitting on my lap, and I am holding her. She wants to slide off my legs, and start walking. So I get up, and walk her around. She is getting really good at it. She slips on the laminate floors, but she is getting better. I wished we could get one of those walkers, but we would have to bring it in from the states.

Molly is not crawling yet, but she is getting there. Pico will lie next to her, and before we know it, she will flip around , and try to get him. She has managed to get a few handfuls of fur. Poor Pico doesn't seem to mind, as he loves the attention...something he gets too little of these days.

Molly is really developing mentally. She is so smart. The toys we got for her at 6 months of age, she is really trying to figure out how they work. You can see her trying to work it out. Last night, even though she wasn't doing it perfectly she was trying to put her shaped blocks through the appropriate cutouts.

It is the most amazing thing watching her grow.

Product Reviews

I thought it would be a good idea to write some product reviews of things we have gotten , and used with Molly.

AVENT bottle system- This is the top of the line for bottles these days, and on the high end of the price range. While, they are a good bottle, they have one flaw that I have found, and that is if you don't screw the rings on *just* so then it leaks like a sieve.

Fisher Price Link-A-Doos Musical Play Garden- This is a cute little play mat. I have found that most play mats here run in the $60-$70 range. This was on the high end of the range. I felt it was a bit overpriced, but she has enjoyed it. It comes with a few attachable toys, which she really hasn't played with. You can buy additional toys to attach. It doesn't travel well.

Tiny Love Noak's Ark Gymini Deluxe-this is a great play mat. It was given to us as a gift on the same day I purchased the Link-a-doos Play Garden. It has detachable toys, and folds up nice to go into a plastic cover with a handle. This mat travels really well. I highly recommend this mat. It is a bit pricey as most of the mats are. You can buy additonal toys to attach.

Fisher Price Brilliant Basics Line of toys- We have several toys from this line, and are quite happy with our choices. Molly seems to enjoy these the most. They are very reasonably priced.

Fisher Price Link-A-Doos Infant to Toddler Rocker We have really used this product. We don't attach the toys to it so much anymore. It has come in handy for so many times, and it can be used throughout the house. You can use any of the link-a-doos toys with this or the play garden. It was reasonably priced, and considering you can use this from infant to toddler it is worth every cent.

Baby Einstein DVD's & VHS Tapes- These are the greatest. Molly just loves watching her Baby Einstein DVD's & Tapes. She only has about 4 of them. We will definitely be getting more of them. You can rent them from the library, and find them used online on craigslist.org if you don't want to spend full price. She has some of their other products, but these are her favorite.

The Original Jolly Jumper Molly loves to bounce in her jolly jumper. It is a bit awkward getting her in, and out of it. We got her jumper second hand, but they are priced a bit high to me for what you get. We don't use the door clamp, as we don't have a proper door frame. I don't think we would use it anyhow, as it looks like it wouldn't be stable. We have hung it from a very sturdy ceiling hook. If you child loves to jump, and bounce then I do recommend getting one.

Teaching Molly to use a sippy cup

Well, we have been trying to teach Molly to use a sippy cup the last little while. I tried when she was first 6 months old, but that failed. We had the AVENT trainer cup, and thought it would work well since she used the AVENT bottle system. Well, she really has struggled with it. So out of desperation, I picked up a Gerber sippy cup to try. Well, she has really picked up on drinking from it much better than the other. I haven't tried the AVENT trainer cup again since we tried the Gerber. I imagine once she gets the hang of it, then she should be able to drink from both. She will be 8 months old on the 11th!!! I can't believe it.

????

Ok, Molly slept through the night last night, and didn't get up at all? So, now I don't know what to think. She went nearly a week of getting up 1-2 times a night. So we will see if she sleeps through tonight.

UPDATE:

She didn't sleep though the night I posted this, but she did the next night.
We think we have narrowed it down to not eating enough during the day.
I will have fed her three meals, plus her formula in between, and a snack by the time she goes to bed tonight. So we will see if she sleeps through again tonight.

Wednesday, January 31, 2007

*yawn*

Well, Molly is still getting up during the night. We tried one night to see if she would just go back to sleep on her own, but as it turned out, she need a diaper change badly. She was also really hungry. She hasn't been eating very good during the day the last few days. I don't know if she is trying to cut her top teeth now, or what the problem is. Anyhow, our sleep schedule has been greatly compromised. She has had us spoiled until now. :D

Change in sleep patterns...

Molly has been waking up around 11pm for the last few days. Last night it was a little later...around 1a.m. I am not sure what has caused this change in sleep pattern. I usually give her a bottle, and she goes back to sleep. This in no way has changed her from getting up early. She has been getting up between 4:30a.m. and 6:30a.m. for a few weeks now. She naps good during the day, so I am not sure what is up. I did read that babies her age, or a little older will start to wake up more because they feel they are missing out on something. I hope this is just a phase, and she goes back to sleeping through the night.


She got up at midnight, and again at 2:45a.m. We are going to try not getting her up, and just seeing if she will fall back asleep. I am wiped today. :(

I had a feeling...


Feeding Molly solids has had it challenges that is for certain. Some days are better than others, and the amount of messiness varies. Some days she barely gets anything on her at all.

I decided to feed her in just her diaper last night, and I guess it was a good call. She managed to hit the spoon several times, and fling food all over her, and me. I am usually not amused with this, but I had to laugh.

I think she just wanted to take a bath on purpose. :) She loves the water. So she got her way. A bath was going to be the only way I got all the little bits off of her.

It will be an interesting site when she will be able to feed herself. I know my brother was quite the messy eater as a baby. I believe my mom said he would hook his toes on the edge of the tray, and rub his dinner plate on his head when he was done.

:)

Trying to crawl...

Molly is really wanting to become mobile. She really puts an assertive effort in doing so, but she just hasn't gotten her arms as strong as her legs. Her legs are extremely strong. When she is in her crib, she will lay on her tummy pushing her head into the mattress, with her butt up in the air. She mostly ends up pushing herself backwards. It is a start though...

Tonight, she was cute. I had her lamp on , and it was projecting her shadow onto the bumper pad. She just thought this was fascinating. She would reach out for it, and try to grab it. Too cute!

She is such a smart baby. It is just so fascinating watching her blossom, and grow. Babies really are unique little creatures :)
Funny, how a sad percentage turn out to be bad adults.

Tuesday, January 16, 2007

Molly thinks Baby Einstein rocks!

She has a couple of the Baby Einstein VHS tapes, and a DVD. She loves them! If you want her to be quiet, and sit mesmerized for a good while, pop in a Baby Einstein tape or DVD. It is so cute watching her, and her reactions. Generally speaking babies have short attention spans, but Molly doesn't when it comes to these DVD's and tapes. They really are good, and we plan on getting her more.

Nestle' FDA Warning Letter

Greg found this warning letter from the FDA regarding Nestle' Good Start formula in doing a search for buying the product in bulk. Nestle'has not responded to this letter on their website, or the FDA website. We have had Molly on this product from the beginning. So, I guess we are going to have to find a different formula, as we don't like the fact that Nestle' lied about nutrition values on their packaging.

you can view the letter here:
FDA warning letter


UPDATE:
A friend of mine had a friend that called Nestle' about this because her child was on the Good Start formula as well. This is what Nestle' told her.
They said Canadian standards are different from the U.S. and that we have a different product. The numbers for the Canadian product are just fine. The U.S. is also fine because Nestle' in Canada checked into it. The U.S. said their system of testing was different which made the results wrong. They are all well aware of this warning and it is invalid.

7 months...

It is hard to believe that 7 months ago, life as we know it dramatically changed. Into our life came this tiny being, that has forever changed us. Molly is 7 months old today, and everyday is a new experience. She is growing, and changing so much. It is hard to believe that this much time has already passed. Before we know it she will be graduating from college!!
It goes by so quickly.

Da-Da-Da-Da Molly

Molly has become quite prolific the last few days. :)

Molly got two cute little onesies from her Grandma in Alabama for Christmas.
They are from the Girls Raised in the South(GRITS)

I thought they were just precious.
