Reindeer Molly

So I know it's not Christmas time, but I just love this picture of Molly! She was three months old when it was taken, and she is a little chunky. But it makes me smile every time I look at it. We have it hanging on our fridge, and when ever I need something to smile about, since these terrible "teachable" twos are kicking my butt right now, I look at little reindeer Molly, and smile. I hope this makes you smile today, and feel free to pretend to squeeze those little cheeks, c'mon I know you want to!

Oh my goodness!!! I want to squeeze her little "chunky monkey" legs (as we used to call Lily). How adorable! I can see why this picture makes you smile :) So cute!!

What a cutie! My big girl was also a little on the bigger side. I laugh when I see mom's carrying around their babies in an infant carrier until the child is one, because seriously, that never happened for me. Alyssa grew out of her infant carrier at 3 months and she hasn't stopped growing yet!

What a sweet picture and a wonderful memory! Definitely brought a smile to my face:)

Oh my gosh! I cannot believe they will be two this summer. Where has the time gone? Thanks for posting, she looks super cute!

Kate...regarding your comment from earlier today...sorry that you guys are also under the weather. You had me laughing from what you said. It really is true...our first babies are sometimes just as bad as our real babies! Praying that you all will get to feeling better soon!

Hi Kate. Your little "chunky monkey", as Kristin called her, is adorable! (Now and then too)

My first little girl was huge at 3 months old. She went from 9 pounds at birth to 18 pounds just before she was 4 months old!

I know what Veronica was talking about,...my little gal outgrew the infant seat fast too,...and lots of baby clothes.

Now that little one is 42 years old! ((smile)) How time flies.
Gosh, each time I mention her age I just feel ancient! But my life has been an adventure, and I love thinking back on all of my babies and the memories.

Thanks for sharing your "reindeer baby" picture with us. It is adorable.

And take heart,...the terrible twos fly quickly by. Enjoy each stage!

Love, Linda @ Truthful Tidbits

What an adorable pudgy Molly. :) I can totally understand why that picture makes you smile - made me smile too.

Enjoy the wonderful twos! I know that's not technically what they're called, but that's technically what they are.

Have a beautiful weekend!
