Molly Anne at almost 2.5!

Thought it’d be fun to have a little Molly Anne update!

1.  She is wearing 2T in all clothes (except 18 month in smocked things) and 3T in pajamas.  She has an opinion of what she wants to wear but will end up wearing what I put her in. Ha!  Lately she is into wearing dresses!  She’s about 31 pounds ish. Not sure of her height but I’d expect she’s still in the mid percentile for that. 

2.  One morning a couple of weeks ago when I was leaving to go to the airport she said, “mama I need you!”  She didn’t want me to go. And she really wanted to go to the airport and Utah with me.  We always have little separation issues on Monday mornings, I say “we” meaning both of us!

3.  She has lots of favorite little terms right now but geez this girl doesn’t miss a beat.  “I sorry for talkin’ to you dat way!”  She and Kevin do this thing where they say what the other one is saying at the same time. They’re crazy.  Every time she walks in the garage she yells, “dah” to see how it echos.  When we walk in the house at the end of the day she says, “heeeeey buuuubba” to Mills and loves on him for a second.   When I change her diaper sometimes she says, “mama you bless my heart.”  

4.  The other day we were leaving a Christmas brunch and we were walking down the driveway and she randomly asked, “Where’s Uncle Mac?!”  It completely caught me off guard so I quickly said, “he’s not here (at the party)!”  I should have told her that he was in heaven. We never really had this conversation with her back in October but maybe we should have. 

5.  She loves singing and dancing.  Not sure about her rhythm though, she may have gotten that from our side of the family. Sorry Molly Anne.  

6.  She’s very into puzzles and doing her numbers game on my iPad. The app has actually been really helpful for her learning her numbers, odd ones versus even etc.  

7.  She is in the tub at 6:30 every night, bed by 7:00pm. She usually gets up between 6:30-7:00am.  Nap is 12:15/12:30 to about 2:30/3:30 depending.  She is a true testament to the old saying, “the more she sleeps, the more she sleeps!”

8.  She remembers EVERYTHING. I could tell her one little thing and a month later, she remembers it and randomly brings it up. 

9.  Mills - this dog/part human is a saint. He lets her do anything she wants to him. She climbs on him, pulls his tail, rides him like a horse, puts make up on him, he is amazing.  She loves him something fierce.  

10.  When Kevin was rocking her to bed one night when I was gone, she told him - ”I’m your baby. I’m mama’s baby and Millsy’s baby - and you love me the most.” 12/13/17. I love that they get these sweet moments together when I’m not all up in their biz! ;)

That’s all I have for now.  I’m sure I’ll think of something later that I forgot.  


  1. Goodness these are sweet! “Mama you bless my heart!” Love that sweet girl!

  2. So sweet! Bless her little heart!

  3. You are so good at documenting MA!! I wish I was better at capturing these fun things! She is so freaking adorable.
