Two weeks ago was Molly's 9th Birthday.
I love this kid and just looking at her makes me smile and laugh and cry all at one time.
This little girl is one I have watched grow since the minute she was born. That little peanut at almost 5 pounds instantly became my little sidekick and she is still a peanut even if she is 9 years old.
This year she wished for some webkins, a Phillies hat, shirts that have holes for your thumbs (apparently this comes in handy so you look cool when your riding your skateboard), a steelers jersey for every player on the starting line up, anything Nascar Kasey Kahne, and real ugg boots.
Guess what I got her??
I feel like she is a mirror image of all the people in her life....
There is a little bit of all of us in her, somehow I reflect most in the feet, but being the shoe fanatic that i am I will take that as a compliment!!!
Heck I am just exited to be in there somewhere!!
Sometimes she makes a face....
I see a face that Kevin or Sean made when they were little....
These are deff Sean faces!!
She is growing up so much and she does things like tell me a joke that I used to tell in 5th grade and she thinks its brand new and I act like its the funniest thing I ever heard, and it makes me feel sooooo old!!!!!! And it makes me think, I remember this, I remember feeling cool and thinking I was telling my parents and family new things, and now I think I realize they already heard it too, but they made me feel like I was entertaining them with something new too!
...I guess life is full circle...and I guess I know what has yet to come!
I can't say that makes me happy but it doesn't make me sad either, well maybe it actually makes me both. But here she is being 9 years old whether its typical or not I don't care she is deff. expressing herself and I can only encourage that she does so with nothing but a smile on her face and that will be fine with me.
I wish we could celebrate the numbers backwards because sometimes I miss that little demanding baby who refused to wear shoes, and the toddler who imitated me smoking a cigarette so well it got me in trouble, and that little girl who danced around the backyard in her d's and refused to wear a shirt because her brothers didn't have to, and all though she may wish I didn't remember these things one day, these are the things she will forever be famous for in my heart!
Happy Birthday Molly Bean!
