I cannot believe it but Molly turned one! We celebrated with a joint birthday party with Molly’s cousin, James who is 9 days older than her. This was with Kelly’s side of the family. Then we spent six days down at Fort Stevens on the Oregon Coast and celebrated Molly’s birthday down there with my parents and sister. Right before Molly’s birthday she and I took a mini road trip up to Bellingham to see my dear friend, Suzanne. We’ve been friends since 7th grade! She offered conduct a birthday photo shoot of Molly. This was so sweet and generous of her. Its been hard at times to feel celebratory of Molly’s birthday because Max isn’t here to celebrate with us. However Molly does need to be celebrated! This photo shoot helped to get me in a better frame of mind.
