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

What I know for sure..

 I will take a little blurb from my gal Oprah and tell you 'What I Know (right now) For Sure..'
  • I married the most giving and sweet man I know & thankful everyday he is my husband AND best friend.
  • The wait is worth so many contexts.
  • I am not good at waiting...this little girl is teaching me patience before she even arrives! Ahhhhh!
  • My family is my life - I love those people more than words can explain!
  • Don't take 'no' for an answer..if you dig a little you just may get your way or the answer you are looking for. Be persistent.
  • Be creative & keep an open mind to new ideas.
  • Sometimes I have to give up control
  • I cannot wait to see my sisters!!! They are beyond excited to be Aunt's:)
  • Being thrifty can be fun and exhilarating- the hunt is seriously half the joy
  • Everyone deserves to feel wanted and loved
  • I will love being a mom!!
  • Not everything will go as (you had) planned - sometimes it's not up to you.
  • Get a second opinion...on anything!
I am now having the impending conversation in my head of 'Oh, when are you due?' and I say 'Yesterday.' This is slightly amusing I'll admit, but at the same time we are getting anxious--to go ahead and do this, meet her, celebrate with family that will be in town this week, etc. This is crunch time. After 40 weeks, we are ready. Obviously my long walks are not really helping move things along, nor are cleaning sprees I've gone on or my manual labor car wash from yesterday. Ha!

I have come to the conclusion that Mollie is perfectly happy eating like a queen while she is inside of me. I swear between Matt cooking amazing meals and my parents being here and cooking too, there is NOT a lack of yummy food to be had. Once she arrives it's all milk...I would not want to come either!!

We'll keep you posted, but pretty sure either way, we will get to meet her this week:) Whew... I am reminding myself to be patient. She must be finishing growing her hair and fingernails, so who am I to rush her?!


    1. AWE! Love this! and you are sooo right about me and Janey being excited about being aunts!!!!!!! :) 2 more days till I come to Chs!!!!!!

    2. I am so excited for you! Can't wait to hear the big news! You are much more patient than I was.... Libby came a week early via c-section cause I couldn't wait any longer (and they thought she was over 9 pounds!
