Molly is 11 months old!

>> May 6, 2008

I can't believe she is going to be 1 at the end of this month.
It came up on me so quickly.
I realized last week that I had better get busy planning a party.

As for milestones last month...
* She cut 4 teeth

* She doesn't even think about crawling now (unless she wants to get under something that requires her to crawl - like the car, yes I said the car. Yesterday while we were playing outside, she managed to get under the car in the time it took me to get the baseball from the street.)

* She loves The Wiggles (I should have expected it!)

* She has a couple of Leap Frog toys that play music when you push buttons on them. She has figured these out, knows which buttons to push to get the songs she likes and does her best to sing along. She sings and hums A LOT.

* She loves her dolly and any stuffed animal she can get her hands on.
I love how she loves her doll. She hugs it and pats it on the back and drags it around the house.
She does this with stuffed animals too.
(You can't tell me that girls and boys aren't wired differently. My boys have owned stuffed animals since they were babies too. But instead of being objects of affection their stuffed animals have been useful for seeing how high they can throw, or how fast they can swing something around by it's ears or tail. Both of the boys' animals needed repairing before the boys were 2.)

* She is about done with baby food (except for her cereal in the morning).
She has a SERIOUS strawberry fettish.

* She LOVES to be outside, but not in a stroller or someone's arms. She wants to be exploring on her own.

Here are a few recent pictures...









Bruce took these in an attempt to get THE picture for her birthday party invite. (I think we may be doing another photo shoot this week.)



AND here is some video...

Playing ring-a-round-the-rosie with Mia (one of her favorite games with one of her favorite people.)

Of her walking (I took this a few weeks ago, but haven't had the opportunity to get it off the camera and posted until now)...

You're growing up too quickly baby girl!

aahhhh, happy b-day sweet Molly. She really is too cute and should firmly have her daddy wrapped around this time. Let us know if she needs help with that. ;)

I like "park fun 002" or "Molly one year invite 099" best for the invitation, but they are all adorable. What great photographs!

Oh I love the pics for her invite. Don't do another photo shoot. These are adorable.

What a cutie she is, I just can't believe she is almost a year! Those are all great shots.

She is so big!!! I love the shot of her barefoot on the sidewalk. That's adorable. I'm sure she's going to be part princess, part tomboy. What a cutie! Great pictures again.
