okay, so nevermind that merrick is almost three weeks old, i just haven't had anytime to get online to post about it... i've been having to much fun being his mother, and
spending time with mine.

lifes been a major whirl these past three weeks and i'm glad that i have been right in the middle of it. merrick wakes me at the same time every night... 12am, 3am and 6am. he is a great eater, cries only when he is gassy, and carries my mothers deep dimples and my fathers butt chin. he falls asleep on his own in his crib, but somehow sneaks out and is found sleeping on dads chest watching hunting.
last night we went to the draper temple open house. it was great... the last open house that i had been too was mt. timpanogos. the draper temple was beautiful! i can't wait til it is open for temple work. i'm glad that my mom was able to come with us and that merrick slept the whole time and only woke as we were walking to the car...
thank you mom for coming out and helping me. i really enjoy when you come to visit. i miss you so much and feel jealous of my siblings that have you everyday. i'm sad that you had to go home today.
i love you.

molly-he is such a cutie! Good job! It's crazy how fast the time flies with these little guys. I find myself holding him and just staring at him sometimes. I'm sure you do the same! Glad you are all doing well!!

I'm with you, it is so hard to have mom go home, especially right after a baby! Aren't you just amazed with your mom now that you know what she went through to have kids? Mom's are the greatest!

I hope I didn't guilt you into this blog from my texts:) but it's great to hear from you and see more pictures of that little man. Oh the first baby is so so so sweet. Even the sleeplessness. Love it.
