Happy 1st Birthday

Today is my baby girl's 1st birthday.  And oh, what a year it has been! Instead of going on and on about how much I love this kid, because really, I really, really love this kid, I'm just going to share a bunch of my favorite pictures from the past year.

Mollie Cate Frank, named for Jeremy's maternal grandmother, Mollie, and my uncle Chuck (Cate).

In labor....forever

Debra was trying to entertain me between contractions

My Auntie kept asking when the baby was going to arrive....yea, we didn't really have an answer
And then they informed us that I would be having a c-section.  A calm but anxious Jeremy suited up for her long awaited arrival.

Jeremy carefully watching the nurse take Mollie's first tests

The new grandparents

A very excited Dad

She still makes this face...but now it happens after we take away a toy

My first time seeing Mollie

The anxious friends and grandparents waiting outside the nursery
Our first family picture.  I have absolutely no idea why we decided to get so dressed up.  We were sleep deprived.

Just chillin on a stool

Mollie and her great grandfather, the day she was born

Mollie and Rachel (aka the mother of her soon to be best friends)

On our way home....holy sh*&, what do we do with her now??

Mollie's first time meeting her BFF/Auntie Steph

Lindsay comes for a visit!

Hey Margot...we're TWINS!

Mollie's 2nd trip to Florida

Hanging out on the beach with Dad

Sometimes this was the only way to get some rest

Best buddies

Cabin weekend with friends....Margot is not sure she likes having Mollie in her bed

Stanley did it

Mollie and cousin Tessa

Another one of our many ways to get her to calm down and rest
