I just can't believe my little girl is already one. Having more than one child at home definitely makes things go by more quickly!
Here is this month's official Molly picture...She is wearing 6-9 month clothing and size 4 diapers. She says "Dada" a lot, and it sometimes actually means Daddy, but she says it to a lot of people! :) She continues to be very curious about the world around her and loves to point and ask about things she sees. She is such a sweetheart and is quite sensitive...all you have to do is look at or speak to her sternly and she melts, and then big brother comes to the rescue (once he got mad at my mom after she had to swat Sapphira and said, "don't spank my baby!"). She is also quite stubborn and determined...once she's put her mind to something, it is hard to get her to stop...playing with power cords and licking other people's shoes are both things that we struggle with at our house. She continues to love her big brother and they really like to play together. Malachi will crawl on the floor with her and she will just laugh and laugh and bury her face in the carpet and laugh some more. She is a big eater (3-4 jars of baby food plus some puffs or/and crackers at each meal) although she isn't crazy about table food and prefers to have baby food and puffs, but her favorite is to have a quarter of a graham cracker in each hand. That will almost always quiet her down. She is just the perfect addition to our family and we can't imagine life without her.
For Sapphira's actual birthday, Malachi decided we should eat at Red Robin. We had fun and the waitresses even sang to her and gave her ice cream which she shared with her brother and cousins. Afterwards, we went back to our house and eat a bit of cake and opened a gift from brother...an orange teddy bear! Ga-Ga finally found one!! Messy sundae face! Orange teddy bear from Brother...she likes to hug it!
