My Irish Molly

How much do I love having a little girl? A LOT :-)

At her 2 month check up, she was 35% for weight, 75% for length and head size (gotta keep up the big head tradition). She is a complete joy. Always has a smile pretty much every time I look at her and she has the cutest little gurgle and coo. She has been trying to laugh but it keeps coming out as a smiley cough - it's so funny. She does chuckle in her sleep though :-)

She loves to swat at things, and especially loves to hold on to things - she always has something in her hands - her clothes, a toy, my hair!!!

I am totally in love with this little bundle! Here are some recent pics:

She loves hanging out on the changing table.

On Eóin's bed with Stinky the dinosaur

Aidan thought the phone was for her (also that she needed a snuggle with tiger)

Fell asleep with Tiger - so peaceful

LOVE this girl!

More Eóin Funnies

At the dinner table the other day:
"Dear Jesus, thank you for the soup and the bread. Thank you that we have a baby sister. Thank you that Aidan sometimes eats while I am praying. Thank you that grandma is here. Amen" Way to rat out your brother :-)

We were talking to Eóin about what he learned in River City and how Jesus washed his friends feet. Jonathan told him that is called serving. Eóin said "I like to do that on a board in the water." Apparently, in his mind, Jesus was very good at surfing :-)

Book Review: The Lady of Bolton Hill by Elizabeth Camden

Clara Endicott wants to change the world. She hates the injustice she sees in the world and so fearlessly and boldly writes to expose them. When one of her stories lands her in more hot water than she ever dreamed of, Clara returns home to write for her Father's publication.

Daniel Tremain wants to change nothing, including the bitterness he has been harboring in his heart for 12 long years. A successful entreprenuer, Daniel plans to use his power and fortune to ruin the people who ruined his home.

Hard to believe that such opposite people could once have been best childhood friends. After 12 years apart, Daniel and Clara again cross paths wondering if they can ever restore what they lost now that they are so different. But there is more at stake than just their friendship as danger and mystery appear at their doorstep!

I thoroughly enjoyed this book. First of all it is one of my favorite eras to read about. Then there is the great mystery which keeps you guessing about how all the pieces will fit together. Lastly, I really enjoyed being challenged by Clara's faith and heart for other people. I highly recommend this read!
