4 Months, Christmas Trees and SNOW!!

Well, here in Oregon we are all snowed in!! On Sunday it snowed about 4 inches and then froze solid, so all the roads are a sheet of ice. Schools are closed and people are staying home. Another storm is supposed to come in tomorrow bringing more snow, then freezing rain, then 2-4 more inches of snow on top of that! So we might not be going anywhere for the next couple of days! It might warm up this weekend, just in time for Janet & Jim to arrive from Houston, but we are waiting to see!! So far we have kept Molly mostly inside because it is too cold (20 degrees) for her, but we did get out for a walk on Sunday morning with my parents and Emile. Emile is a high school student from Rwanda who is staying with my parents for the month of December. It is so much fun to show him all things “American”!! We are learning a lot from him about Rwanda as well! We took him on his first ever walk in the snow and got some Hot Chocolate! He loved it all!!

We kept Molly very warm!! Matt thought she looked like the little boy on A Christmas Story who couldn’t move his arms!!


On Saturday, before all this snow and ice, we went out and got a Christmas tree! We went up a little hill (about 500 feet) and found ourselves in a snow shower! So Molly’s first experience with snow was Saturday!! She was sticking out her tongue and licking the flakes!! 


Molly’s first Christmas Tree Experience!

Today was Molly’s 4 month visit and all is well! She got more shots today…yuck!! Here are her stats:

Weight: 12 lbs 13 oz

Length: 24 1/4 inches

Head: 16 1/8 inches

She is growing and changing everyday! We are still trying to get that reflux under control. We are trying a different medication for a couple weeks, and then if that doesn’t work, I am going to try removing all milk and dairy from my diet. The doctor thinks that maybe her stomach is having a hard time digesting milk right now. Hopefully the medicine works, because I love my milk & cheese & ICE CREAM!!! 

Molly has recently started laughing! Mostly at Cassie and other random things! Matt and I sing and make funny faces and try so hard to get her to laugh and then that dog runs by and she cracks up!! You never know what she thinks is funny! I’m trying to get a good video of her laugh, but I’ve missed it so far. I’ll post it when I get one! Here are some photos from the past month, more on the photo page!

    I can’t believe that Molly is 4 months old. Time flies, and she is changing so much. What a face. I wish I could kiss those checks. I can’t wait to see her again in person. Merry Christmas Molly!

    I can’t believe how much she has changed. Great photos! Hopefully, she’s already snowboarding with Matt!
