(Molly's supermodel pose)
Let me tell you - she is one gorgeous hunk of baby girl.
I have been trying to get to Florida since the end of tax season, since that's our busiest time at our office, being accountants and all. However, life just kept getting in the way. Over and over and over....you get the idea. So finally after 7 months of waiting, everything fell into place perfectly. My mother in law was making her first visit since her cancer diagnosis last fall (which was the longest she's gone without visiting NC) which meant she could keep an eye on my family while I took my mini trip. A friend got me a buddy pass for a flight to Florida so I would arrive there in about an hour and a half, instead of after an 8 or 9 hour drive. (And yes, I am eternally grateful because without it there is no way I could have afforded the flight, or made that drive there and back over two and a half days.) And I was beyond ready.
Catherine picked me up at the airport, then we did some quick grocery shopping, and picked Molly up at her daycare. I was terrified that she would take one look at me and cling to her momma like she thought I'd try to eat her arm. However, she held out her hands to me without hesitation and with a big grin. Bless her heart.
