Our Journey to Molly

playdates, birthday parties and more...

Molly has had lots of firsts this week, including going to her first birthday party for our friend, Grayson.  She loved bouncing, sliding, and swinging most of all.  I've also learned that she doesn't mind being the center of attention...at ALL!  Before the night was over, she was sitting on the island with everybody around her dancing and working the room! 

Miss thing loving her spot in the middle of it all!
We've also had a few playdates and she's done really well playing with her new friends.  She does great sharing and just being sweet.
playing with Emily Kate

and Raley

Some new things Molly is doing....gives sweet eyes, points to her head, nose and belly button,  does sign language for more, and tries to repeat a lot more(esp. with Gage)! 

We went to Reed's school for lunch last week.  Reed loved showing his little sis off to his friends!

She went to church for the first time here last week and did great...well at least during the first part while the singing was going on.  She was clapping and singing the whole time.  she got a little fidgety once the sermon started, so Jon took her out in the hall during that part.  I think we'll try Sunday School next week, and see how she does in there.  I think she'll be fine.  

I snapped a few of them after church..

I have a feeling Molly and Gage are going to be the best of friends.  She really cuts loose with him and he gets her to act sillier than anybody else.  She copies and repeats everything he does.  Tonight they were in the bath and I heard Gage telling her to say "Gage" and she wasn't saying it right, so he told her if she said Gage, he would give her a chinese dollar!  SO funny!!   At first I thought he said it because she's chinese, but realized it was because he wants to get rid of the chinese money we gave him because he can't buy anything with it here...smart boy!  He's obsessed with his $$!!

I LOVE this picture because it shows how much her brothers and their friends love little Molly!  I don't think she'll ever have to lift a finger with these guys around:)

Love how Reed has his arms around both Gage and Molly in the last picture, and how Gage is holding on to his money bag!
