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!!!!

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 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! :)

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 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! :)

Molly Claps

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. :)
