It's been a month since I've posted to Molly's site. Man, how time flies. I'm happy to be posting tonight since we have holiday photos of Molly. You can find them in The Molly Collection album. Happy Holidays!

This year I am thankful for many things. I am especially thankful to be married to an amazing and strong woman, Shellie, who I often wonder if I deserve. I am thankful for our daughter who has taught me so much about life in her first year in this world. We successfully made it through our first year of parenthood alive, which included a transcontinental move. I am thankful for old friends and new. To our old friends (John & Marie, Brian & Jen, Amy, Marina, Victor, Steve, Rick, Paul), thank you for understanding and supporting the difficult decisions we made this year. To our new friends (Steve & Christy, Matt & Chanda, Henry & Rachel), thanks for being here with open arms when we arrived in San Diego. A special thanks to my brother and sister in-law, Chuck and Pam, for helping us make the move much easier. We really could not have done it without you. To our family, we’re here. We know how happy you all are to have us back on the left coast. We are happy to be closer to you as well. We are thankful to have so many wonderful people in our lives. The challenges of the year are not yet over, but we face them knowing that the decisions will come easier with all of you in our lives. Have a wonderful, safe, and happy Thanksgiving, everyone!

Molly has discovered stairs. She loves going up them and then sliding down them on her rear. It's quite amusing yet a little disconcerting for Shellie and I.

I've added a few photos to The Molly Collection from Molly's first birthday party.

Today was the first day since moving to San Diego we've had a chance to enjoy our house. I know this doesn't have much to do with Molly and yet it does. We purchased some nice patio furniture this last week. It came in one huge box. Shellie and I spent the bulk of Thursday evening assembling it. Today I purcahsed a nice grill. This evening we had some friends over for dinner while Amy, a friend from Boston, is here for the weekend. We sat outside most of the evening. Molly loved watching the palms sway in the breeze and the stars come out. It was nice to be able to have a small gathering at our place and not feel cramped.

I took Molly to Home Depot last night to grab a few things. As we were leaving, we saw a baby in another cart. I said, "Look, Molly, there's another baby." She pointed to the other baby and said, "Baby!" I just about fainted right then and there. Her verbal skills are truly amazing. She is saying, "hi" in response to someone else saying "hi" to her first. She is saying "mama" and "dada." She can't quite say "banana" yet, but she has shortened it to "nana." However, she uses "nana" as the word for just about any form of food right now. The other night while we were eating dinner she blurted out her first phrase, "Hi, baby." Shellie and I just looked at each other and started clapping. Molly gave use the weirdest look and then started clapping with us.

Molly is really learning how to get around. She has perfected her scooting and can get just about anywhere now. She has taken a liking to our cupboards and cabinets. Molly believes that our cabinets and cupboards should only contain her toys. It is time to install babygates and the rest of the safety equipment.

We went to Palm Desert for an overnight stay at Shellie's mom's this weekend. It was quite nice. The drive wasn't bad at all. It only took two hours from our house to her's. We even got to leave Molly with Jan for a few hours to see a movie. This was the first time since New Year's that Shellie and I have had a chance to be by ourselves. We really just find some babysitters so that we can get out more frequently.

Molly turned 11 months old yesterday. In just a month she will be a year. Shellie and I have been reflecting on what life was like a year ago. It has only been a year, but seems like it was forever ago.

Molly is becoming much more mobile. She is almost crawling and can scoot or roll herself across a room quite proficiently now. She is also developing her balance. She like pulling herself up on things and loves it when I help her up. Just in the past couple of days she has started to put one foot in front of the other while being guided. The next month should prove to be very interesting.

Well, I spoke too soon. I came down with the same cold/flu that Shellie and Molly had. I didn't seem to have quite as bad as they did, however. I'm finally back online and writing.
