Here are a few updates from the past few weeks:
At 1 year, 1 month, and 1 day old, Mollie Michelle took her first steps walking to her sweet little friend, Natalie! She and her momma were over joining us for dinner and Natalie was having such a good time exploring and walking all over the place, Mollie decided to join her! By no means is Mollie "all over the place" at this point, but she can walk! She certainly needs to work up some courage, though. This is a very cautious, careful little girl who prefers crawling because it's "safe". We'll just have to keep practicing and get better at it!
Mollie and her sweet friend Natalie!
We celebrated St. Patrick's Day! As most of you know, this is a big deal in the Fellers' home. Jason's proud of our Irish roots and my parents live in Shamrock, TX, where they celebrate this holiday in style! So how can we not be excited about wearing green?
I made Mollie's shirt! Fun! And look at those teeth!! hehe
We went to Shamrock this past weekend to enjoy the St. Patty's Day festivities. However, the weather had other plans...crazy wind, snow, and ice covered the area and canceled the parade and race (which I actually was going to run!!). So we hung out with the 'rents and all the other family and friends that joined us (Kyler brought about 10 people with him!!) the rest of the day, which was so much fun. That evening, we had the pleasure of listening to the Texas Crossroads Band perform in Shamrock! This is where my good 'ol dad rocked the drums and Jason jammed on the guitar/ vocals/ and harmonica. They did great and got the whole place dancing! They actually were opening for Trent Willmon (country artist out of Nashville), who was quite good. We had a great time listening, dancing, and staying out late (thanks Mom for watching Mollie!!)
Unfortunately, Mollie chose the night we stayed up late anyway to decide she didn't want to sleep in her pack-n-play. That girl kept me up till 3am! Goodness. We've got to work on this sleeping in other beds thing...it's starting to become an issue. Needless to say, we were exhausted, we all took long naps on Sunday, and are still feeling drained today. However, it was worth it :o) We had a blast this weekend. Good time with family, friends, and some great music. Can't wait till St. Patty's Day 2011!!
This pic says it all!!!
Also, she's in a forward facing car seat now! Such a big girl!
Here's a video of Mollie walking...sort of :o) If she's thinking about it, she won't go far. Otherwise, she'll just take off!
