A year of firsts

As you may know, Mollybear’s first birthday was last Saturday. We hosted a party for her and were so grateful for all those able to attend and for all of those who sent their good cheer from afar. We know how lucky we are. In Bear’s honor, I’d like to take this space to celebrate a few of her firsts from the past year. Ok with you?

First day outside the womb

That was quite a day for all of us.

We had a bit of a hiccup on this trip (forgetting that I was no longer able to breastfeed and that Bear might want to eat something), but I think a good time was had by all.

One day, while still on leave but with wheels available to me, Bear & puppy & I piled in the car and went for a drive. I got a little turned around so we turned around in Monticello, but not before taking in the view.

What a treat.

First high chair experience

She didn’t want us to think she was TOO grown up, so she stuck out her tongue for the camera.

First time wearing a slicker

And certainly first time wearing a slicker while sitting on a table.

First Christmas

She warmed up to Steve eventually, but all Maggie has to do is look at her and Bear is in heaven.

First Valentine's Day

First Valentine’s Day

This was a big one for me because I actually remembered she was supposed to wear red (or white or pink) to school AND I put her in a red shirt. Yes, I will pat myself on the back for this thank you very much.*

And it was waaaaaaaaay too early. Way. Too. Early. Way.

And she handled it with aplomb! Or, maybe I should say she tolerated it sorta.

*I know it doesn’t quite make up for the hodge-podge of an outfit she was wearing for her first picture day, but I’m trying to go easy on myself here.
