My 5th Birthday

From the diary of Molly Lafferty:

This was a big month for me. It all started with my four-month shots; I should have known something was up when Mom and Dad kept hugging me and saying, "It's not our fault!" I was a tough girl, though. I only cried a little, and in fact, I think Mom cried more than I did. I just cuddled with my duckie and slept off the pain after the shots.

The weekend after that, my friend Maryanne came to visit me all the way from California. We convinced our mommies to take us shopping, and they paid for everything ;)

Next, I decided it was time to try out my exercsaucer. My feet didn't quite touch the bottom, but with the help of a book, I was good to go. With the weather starting to get a little colder, I wanted to make sure I got out of the house a little. Jensen and I (along with her big brother and our Mommies) all went to the zoo, and then I took my parents to the pumpkin patch to pick out my first pumpkin.

I hit three big milestones in my life this month, too. First I ate rice cereal, then right after that I sat up on my own, and not long after that I rolled over for the first time. I've actually been able to roll over for a while, but I waited until the parents-as-teachers ladies were over. My parents asked them if it was OK that I wasn't rolling over yet, and right after that, I rolled over... it was really funny.

Lastly, today, on my five-month birthday I got to put my Halloween costume on a few days early and wear it to a party with a ton of other kids. They even let me walk across the stage and show my costume off to the whole audience. I'm pretty sure I made everyone's day, and I had a blast at the same time.

That's all for this month. It's getting late, and it's Dad's turn to use the computer, like always.

The holidays are coming up, and I hope that I'll get to see everyone!

Molly's Thrid Month

Thank you Aunt Sarah for getting me back on track!

Molly is becoming more and more expressive, recognizing people outside of Amy and I and developing hand eye coordination. At her latest checkup she weighed in at 13 and one half pounds and is 24 inches tall. She is moving a long in the 50th percentile pretty much every month, a very good sign that she is a healthy baby.

Her eating is insane; she went from about every three hours to every hour sometimes during the day. Good news for mom is that Molly is now sleeping up to 12 hours a night, this is good news for dad to, but he is missing the 1 AM feeding, since it was time for him and Molly to hang out. On the other hand dads bruises from mom kicking him to wake up are healing… just kidding.

Molly had her first road trip this month, we packed up what felt like a months supply of “stuff” for a weekend trip to Dallas, to see my cousin get married as well as introduce Molly to a lot of her extended family and spend some quality time with Aunt Amber. It was a great trip and Molly did very well in car.

Other exciting things from Molly’s like this last month; went to the Spinach Fest, cheered KSU to a great win over Texas and was disappointed in a heart breaking loss to Mom’s school, two new friends were born, Paxton and Avery and just this last weekend Cheryl and Maryann came to visit.

Molly also added a time line to her web site this month, if you haven’t looked at it you should take a look, you can really tell how much she’s grown!

That’s all for this entry, I’ll try and remember the next one without a reminder J
