We could not be more in love and can already see the start of our little family blooming!

Mollie & Da-Da night away

A guest post from Matt!!!!

With Leigh Ann having a weekend full of activities, I decided to take Mollie up to Surfside Beach to visit Poppy and Gigi.  I've had the day w/ her solo, but never a full night away.  I'm sure there was some nervousness all around.  She could not have been more pleasant or easier, thank goodness  On the drive up, you would have never known she was even in the car, of course that all goes with the timing (of eating). We arrived into town, stopped off at the soccer store and bought a Liverpool scarf, visited Poppy at work, and then went to lunch at Gordon Biersch in the Market Commons shopping area. 
After lunch, back to the house so Mollie could get in a nap.  Later in the afternoon, a brief visit to the beach, we were stopped by the rain.  Although she loved the wind in her face!
 So, then came the hard part.....bedtime.  I figured it would be a bit difficult because she's now starting to get some separation anxiety from time to time.  Going to bed in a strange room could be tough for her.  She went to bed so easily and lasted for almost 4 hours, then shortly afterward the cries came.  After attempting to get her to go back down I decided to go ahead and bring her to bed with me.  It could have been a disaster, but after a few minutes of getting adjusted, we both crashed and the next thing I know I'm waking up around 6:30 am and look over to a pair of tiny little eyes staring at me.  Who knows how long she was doing that!
Mollie probably is quite a bit more adaptable than we give her credit for -- Now let's see how the 10+ hour (one way) car ride & 3 nights in a new place work out next week when we head down to Alabama!
