Mollie arrived to us on July 6, 2010 at 10:42 AM. She weighed in at 6 lbs, 6 oz and 19 inches long!
We could not be more in love and can already see the start of our little family blooming!
Thanks for your continued love and support ~Leigh Ann, Matt & Mollie

Father's Day Life Lessons

Another Post by Matt! ~LA
Below is a list of things I've learned over time and hopefully some of these can be useful to Mollie.  Although this is a lot of information for a newborn to immediately take in, we're very confident she will be able to adapt to, and carry on with all of these simple lessons.
1)  Don't fry bacon without a shirt on
2)  It never hurts to try something new at least once, even if you decide you don't like it
3)  Don't eat yellow snow
4)  Treat others as you would like to be treated
5)  Cooking, eating, and being in the kitchen is FUN!!  Don't take it as a chore, but as something you can enjoy.  (She'll get started early in that department)
6)  I look forward to teaching her the basics of soccer, baseball, and football (Playing and watching)--  But to try out what YOU like and what you're good at.
7)  Traveling;  everything that is out there, what there is to see and explore.  Both nationally, internationally, and even locally.
8)  Loyalty will take you a long way with your friends. 
9)  Saving money can be fun, and she'll just be better off in the long run.  You can still do everything you want.
10)  I cannot WAIT to teach her everything that Widespread Panic has put out, especially between 1995 - 2002.
11)  Holiday fun, especially Christmas traditions; Pumpkin carving, Easter egg hunts, and Emmett Otter!!We have some that are old & passed down, although we look forward to creating our own family traditions, too.
And lastly, 3 more major life lessons...
1)  The Lord loves a working man
2)  Don't trust whitey
3)  See a doctor and get rid of it
