Journey Jots #16
Hello, guys! Hope you are well!
Since being back from Florida for almost two weeks now, it’s been SO WARM here! Like…creepily warm. We’ve had temps in the upper 50’s which is unheard of this time of year. It literally feels like Spring has already arrived…I’ve never experienced anything like it and I’ve lived here for almost 37 years. It’s crazy!
However, I’m not complaining because it’s making ‘Winter’ feel so enjoyable!
I was FINALLY able to see my Molly girl for the first time since Christmas weekend! Isn’t that nuts?!
She’s growing like a weed..jabbering and talking constantly, rolling over and scooting everywhere, loves to pull off her socks, and is eating yummy pureed food!
Molly can also sit up all by herself now…look at how big!! I can’t even…she’s so stinkin’ adorable.
We’ve also been able to walk Tilly in the woods without hats, gloves, boots, and parkas!
It’s so strange (and very muddy) but she LOVES it.
