Of course, the younger sister of one Claire Bear deserves a nickname of her own, which is how Molly Moo was established. A sweet name for an even sweeter girl – as predicted, she captured our hearts immediately. Her expressions and smiles throughout the weekend were simply awesome.
We got an early start on Saturday with a walk to the park. Claire had a great time playing and yelling, “I’m running with the football!”
We also spent some time on the swings…
…an activity we repeated a few hours later with Aunt Monica and Uncle Patrick!
The two sides of the family were both in town to celebrate Susan’s birthday…
…watch two football games at once (the NU vs. OSU game made Bobby and me a little crazy)…
…and celebrate Molly’s baptism!

Little sis did such an incredible job – she didn’t make a peep! Godfather Jim did well, too.
Big sis looked adorable in her flowery dress and pink cardigan. It’s hard to believe that it has already been more than two years since we were in town to celebrate her baptism.

After the ceremony, we enjoyed some delicious lunch and festive cake.
There were piggyback rides…
…and shoulder rides, too.
Of course, the trip was too short as always, but we enjoyed getting the chance to see family – and any time spent with the nieces pieces can’t be beat.
Happy (almost) two month birthday, Molly! Until next time, ladies!
Any plans for the weekend? I’ve got a very special celebration kicking off today!
