*I know the posts have been coming less frequently the past couple weeks (for those of you that care)... but honestly, she doesn't do that much. But I think her first smile is right around the corner... so expect lots of pictures then.

Molly had her first ride on the subway today. Courtney and Grandmama decided to take Molly along on a trip to Target at the Atlantic Center (probably the worst Target in existence, by the way). She did well on the train, but I'm told that getting up and down the stairs was a bit harrowing... pacifiers, blankets, and other paraphernalia flying out... a dangerous lean... and generally slippery conditions. But they all made it back safely and loaded down with baby provisions.

The first Christmas for our new family. Molly had no idea what was going on, but that didn't stop us from pretending like she did. To wit:
Looking at our tree.
In her Christmas outfit from Grammy.
And a couple more examples of the Christmas cheer we forced on our little blank slate:
|Family portrait... Tabitha struggles to escape|
and Molly struggles to comprehend.
But, in truth, we all had a great day and feel incredibly blessed to have spent it with our daughter and her Grandmama. Warm Christmas wishes and love to all our friends and family.

Molly is one (calendar) month today and still going strong... especially in the crying department (we're working on it). My Mom, aka Grandmama, is visiting us until next weekend. She's cooking up a storm... making sure we're fattened up for a big batch of New Year's resolutions. We all took a stroll this afternoon... Molly wore her improvised Holiday outfit. Hope everyone has a pleasant Christmas Eve and a very Merry Christmas tomorrow!
Bonus nap pictures from this morning.

The three of us took a walk this morning. We stopped at the bagel store to have breakfast, and just as we sat down she started to cry. We quickly realized we were, for the first time, "those people"... so we left and ate on foot... and I spilled a bottle of orange juice in my coat pocket.
And then we went home and watched her basically doing nothing...
... a cute nothing, but nothing just the same.

We checked off a few more firsts since the last post...
First bath (in the tub).
Courtney's sister, Kathryn (yes, Molly is her middle-namesake), her husband Stacy, and their six-month old daughter, Evelyn, came up from Atlanta (excuse me, Stacy... Decatur) to visit us on Friday and returned this morning... everyone had a great time and we were sad to see them go.

These last few days we've discovered that Molly has some fight in her. Normal baby stuff, I'm sure... but it's still pretty intense.
She fights orthodox and prefers the peek-a-boo guard, as shown in this comparison with the great Floyd Patterson, one of the most well-known practitioners of the style.
And her parents? We'll quote Roberto Duran in
saying to our little Leonard, "No más, no más."
