Before Molly was born, we had all kinds of sweet nicknames for her. We had to call her something, since she didn’t have a name until many minutes after she entered this world. My favorite was Baby. Many, many gifts at my baby showers were for Baby. My mom would ask how I was doing, and I’d say something like, “Baby is very active today.” But even after she joined our family, Jim and I would often call her an endearing something other than her given name…Jim especially tried a LOT of nicknames for the girl: peanut, boogs (for several days, she had the grossest eye boogers. I thought he was calling her BUGS, because some of her pjs had bug feet, but no…he was referring to her eye boogers), sweetheart, sweet pea, peaches. One day, he morphed two of the nicknames and hence christened Molly as Sweet Peaches. I couldn’t agree more. She IS so sweet and yummy, just like a ripe peach.
I’m about three months and three weeks late with this blogging thing. There have been many exciting things that Molly has already experienced and many, many adorable moments we’ve had together. I hope to use this blog to share updates about what Molly is up to, what our life is like with this awesome addition to our family, and to one day show Molly how much we cherish her. So many of my friends have said to write down the things that happen, the milestones Molly reaches, because I’ll forget. I didn’t think that I would, but I have forgotten so many things already. Every day is new and exciting and Molly changes so much, that just when I think there’s no way I’ll ever forget that, she goes and does something even cuter and more amazing. This happens EVERY DAY.
