Our Journey to Molly


Wednesday, January 11, 2012

Back to Normal!

It's UH-Mazing what a little sleep and and some antibiotics can do for us all!  Molly feels better and we are all getting sleep...oh yeah!!  And this girl can sleep!  We put her down around 7pm and she doesn't make a peep until 9:30 or 10 am!!  Yes, you read that right.  The girl is a sleeping champ....thank you God.  She even squeezes in a 2-3 hour nap during the day.  She is one happy and SWEET little girl!  Our love grows for her more and more every day, and I didn't even know that was possible.  She's always smiling and giving kisses to anybody who asks for one.  The boys rush home from school and play with her nonstop until it's time for bed.  Gage is starting to warm up to her more and more...it's kinda hard not to, she's irrisistable!  The boys are still doing a great job dividing their attention so that no one feels neglected.  It's like a crazy house once everybody is home in the evenings, but I wouldn't have it any other way!

What Molly's doing now..

~will nod her head yes to anything that sounds like a question
~loves when Reed picks her up and swings her around and around...will squeal out laughing.  
~hums Roux's name in the same intonation that we say it.  She will actually try and pet him some, but will make a disgusted face and turn away if he even thinks about licking her
~will put our ipod earbuds to her ears.  We put them in her ears on the plane so she could watch tv and she found a pair yestereday, and was walking around with them in her ears
~she wants everybody to acknowledge and say hi to her, and if somebody doesn't, she will hi you to death til you do!
~she's very laid back and easy going....whew!
~she LOVES her brothers!!   Has figured out that they are the MOST fun to play with!  
~If people are in different rooms, she'll walk back and forth, checking in on everybody
~ She seems to understand a lot of what we tell her.  If we tell her to say hi or bye, she will, or if I say "where's Ben, Reed, or Gage, she will go looking for them.  She' a smart little thing!
