Molly Twelve Months!

We are so so proud of this girl! What a blessing she has been this past year. She has been a great addition to our family, we've loved having a baby girl. We're sad to see babyhood go, but we're excited to see her doing and learning new things. Here's what she's been up to this month:

We took Molly to the doctor in Kampala to get vaccines.

Molly is wearing 18-24 month clothes and size 5 diapers.

She is taking two naps and sleeping 12 hours at night.

She is nursing 4-5 times a day. I've found it really difficult to drop her feedings, so she's still nursing a lot. I'm hoping that incorporating cow's milk with will help with that. She eats 3 solid meals a day (mostly whatever we're eating) and 1 or 2 snacks.

Molly can stand on her own! She usually squats down after several seconds.

She has learned to wave bye bye.

She has started giving sloppy baby kisses. We love it!

She is saying mama and dada consistently.

She really doesn't want to be held by anyone but mama. She doesn't mind going to dad but she pretty cries if anyone else takes her! I guess we've entered the separation anxiety stage.

She is into EVERYTHING. I've forgotten what a big mess a mobile and curious baby can make.

She is not a big fan of bath time.

She laughs hysterically when Graham plays peek-a-boo with her.

She loves to play with her toy "smartphone" and holds it up to her ear.

When she holds a comb she rubs it on her head.

She loves to play outside with her brother.

She pretty much likes to do anything with her brother.

The past year has just flown by. We are looking forward to how Molly will change and grow in her second year. We just love her to pieces!
