Molly’s 12 Month Update!

You guys. She’s 1 {tomorrow}. I kind of want to cry thinking about it. She’s way too little to be 1, but I guess I’m going to have to face the reality and embrace her growing up. Just look at how she’s changed over the last 12 months.

Molly 1 year collageI can’t begin to express how this tiny human has changed my life. Becoming a mom has been the greatest thing in my world. It’s made me a better wife, harder worker, more present person. I adore this girl and she has brightened our life in so many ways. She is the sweetest, most lovable little girl. She has a huge, scrunchy-nosed smile that can brighten the worst days. Her laugh is my favorite sound. It’s one of those great, big belly laughs that fills the room. She love love loves to play and is the busiest little monkey. She plays from the moment she wakes up until she crashes for her naps or bed. She will literally be crawling for her next toy and just lay her sweet little face on the floor, ready for some shut-eye. She loves anything loud or full of action. She is such a curious, observant girl. She loves to watch people and seems to be soaking up everything we do and trying to mimic it. She recently learned to stick out her tongue and likes it when we do it back. She loves to babble and gets really goofy when she gets tired. It’s my favorite time of day. I could go on and on about all the wonderful traits she has, there isn’t enough time in the day or room on this blog:) I can’t begin to express the joy she brings to us. Mike and I are incredibly blessed to be her parents and couldn’t be more proud of that little chunky monkey:)

  3. Jess it’s Hallie… I hope this gets through to you! Happy Birthday to Molly. She is such a fabulous, bright little chunky monkey! My favorite part of the baby shower was when she reached out for me to hold her. It’s crazy how such a small gesture from a little smiley creature can change your world. She is a blessing and I am so happy for you and Mike to celebrate her 1st birthday!! Congrats!
