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 will be a full scale run here before we know it!!!! :)

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.

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?
