when your day doesn't go as planned...

i intended to say home today and prepare for molly's surgery tomorrow
but then i swayed myself into going out know just for a few things thinking we would be confined to the house for a while
i received molly's pictures from the photo shoot last month
all i can say is...gorgeous!  
now i have lots of great pictures and fewer walls than i thought to display them!
i needed some frames of certain sizes and i thought i could work on hanging them while we are 'house confined' this weekend.
so i got molly all dressed up (of course) and off we went to shop.
i didn't plan on staying gone all day...but one thing lead to another and all i can say is i spent too much and somehow came home with even more pictures than i already had!!!!!!!!
she obviously just had her pictures taken a month ago and i spent way too much...but am sure i'll do it again.  the photographer coming to the house was so worth it, really.
but today i was reeled in by the $9.95 sign at one of those photo places near a mall.
molly was looking rather cute and was in a good mood and i thought i'll just walk in and see if they can take her picture in this cute dress b/c after tomorrow she will have both hands and one foot all bandaged up.  
and so i did, they did, and i did ...spend more than $9.95...but not more than my monthly mortgage so i'm keeping it in perspective!
now i have about 387 pictures to frame, put in albums, and send to friends and family {who already have started accumulating their fair share of Molly pictures}
the professional pictures are breathtaking and i don't have images i can post on the computer for you to see, but they are exactly what i wanted to capture our life at home.  total perfection.
the pictures today are just relaxed, off the cuff, in a "staged" setting, not usually my top pick for pictures, but still gorgeous...i think it's the subject in the pictures
i'm so in love!
if you are around her for any amount of time you will know why.
she's all my dreams come true.
now you can take a look and see why i couldn't leave any of these behind...

if you are a family member...don't worry you have plenty of pictures coming to you! ha!  if you are not related, but would like to join the "Molly fan club"...please sign up by leaving a comment and I'll have an autographed picture to you soon.  Seriously...when I got home I looked at all of this compilation of pictures and thought "what was i thinking"?  i guess you can count it off as a new mother thing.  i don't want my home to become a shrine...but, we got lots o' pictures!  i'm just sayin'!!!

so now, my little model is nestled in bed getting her much needed sleep before her surgery tomorrow morning.  I'll update as soon as we are settled in at home.  I better start doing everything on my list that did not get accomplished this morning!  It's going to be a late night!!
Pray for my baby is scheduled for 11:00 a.m. and should last about 3 hours.

Oh she is so sweet. I know it will go really well tomorrow. Miss Molly is one strong and amazing little girl (just like her mom!). Update when you can! Will be thinking of you guys!

Molly is so cute! She looks so happy and comfortable. I have been reading your blog for awhile now. I will be praying for her and you tomorrow. She is truly a miracle.

Those are cute pictures! Appropriate since she became an official Citizen this week! I'll say a prayer for Miss Molly's surgery. I'm sure she'll come out of it wonderfully and will be smiling again soon.

Dang! Sign me up! Sailor dresses are my absolute favorite. But then there are also smocked dresses. Pillowslip dresses too!
Although we have never met, I see pictures of your home and of Molly and we have a lot of the same tastes.

I am praying for her today as she has her surgery. Praying for you as well. Hope you can still spend time outside for a distraction.

How beautiful. It was so fun to get to "play" with her yesterday at the store. I still have photos of Cole that aren't in albums--I just organized them and played with him instead. Molly (and you) will do great with the surgery. Love and prayers.\Val

Girl, I wouldn't have resisted the pictures either! They are precious!!!
I don't post a comment every time but I love keeping up with you and Miss Molly.
I am praying for her today and for you. Blessings.
I'm actually getting ready to take my sweet Cate to the doctor...pretty sure she has strep. :(

Sign me up for the Fan Club! Even though by the time I read this surgery is over, I'm praying with you and for you.

Sending you an extra measure of love and hugs from Minnesota.

Love the dress - my mom has an entire photo shoot (I was the first child) of me in an almost identical dress. She dug the dress out when my oldest was 2 hoping to get some pics of her in it - uh, yeah a dress from 1977 stored in an attic didn't exactly stay in the best shape!

Will be praying for Molly during & after her surgery - and also for's so tough on us Mama's seeing our little one go through something like that!
