"So promise me you'll never forget...that you aren't an accident or an incident...you are a gift to the world, a divine work of art, signed by God. You were deliberately planned, specifically gifted, and lovingly positioned on this earth...Flooded by emotion, overcome by pride, the Starmaker turns to us, one by one, and says, 'You are my child. I love you dearly.'" Max Lucado, God Thinks You're Wonderful

Catching up!

Sorry to have to play catch up, but I have been a little selfish with my time lately and haven't updated everybody! The picture above was our attempt to get a family snapshot. It wasn't very successful, but kind of funny. I think we'll need to wait until someone can take it for us!

First, our sweet baby girl turned 6 weeks on Wednesday! I took these cute pictures of her to document. It's been so fun watching her start to get bigger and make eye contact, focus and listen to our voices. She is feeling much better as far as the reflux goes, but you can still tell it bothers her at times when we lay her down. She is sleeping in her bouncy seat for now (so much for me saying my kids don't use these things!!!)

Cooper wanting to hold her. I am telling you these boys are OBSESSED with Sadie Skielar!

On Thursday, my sweet honey turned 29! He is in mourning about what will happen next year! For some odd reason I can't wait to be 30 and he's not in the same boat! Here's a picture from his birthday dinner! Happy birthweek honey!
We packed up Friday morning and headed to Tulsa to see my family. Blake had to stay home because he's been working with the OU team doctor (so sad for Blake, wink, wink!) and they had a home game that he needed to "work". If you see Blake, ask him about his doctoring skills with Cooper's favorite player, DeMarco Murry!

My parents invited their families and some friends over to meet Sadie, so here are some of the pictures from last night. We had so much fun showing her off! I didn't do a great job of taking pictures because I was having so much fun talking with everyone. We have wonderful friends and families that have prayed with us and for us and our children.

All 8 of my parent's grandchildren! How cool is that? Now, we'll have to get Greyson in here in another couple of weeks when he gets here!

One of the sweetest little men I know. I could eat you up Sutton Grant! You steal my heart! Julie and Hess Hester. Hess is the pastor who married Blake and I and they pastor our church in Tulsa. Are they not adorable???
You can tell how proud my dad is in this picture! I love it! This is my dad's sister, my Aunt Evie!The kids eating some chili! These three are at the stage where they fight like they are siblings. That's a good sign of great friendship! I love it!
Oh my goodness! Could that smile be any sweeter? I love you Ragon! Thanks for loving baby Sadie!

Oh my goodness! Such sweet pictures. Every time you post you help me to know that "its real" and that it WILL happen for our family! I was needing a little Shockely pick me up :) Have a great week.

Molly, so glad to see things are going so well for you and your family. I watch your blog constantly, but rarely comment. Sadie is just beautiful and is growing so fast. Your boys are to die for, their little personalities really come out through the pictures and only could imagine what they are really like in person! You have your hands full, but you are young...you can take on a few more ;)! Thanks for sharing your world and blessings!
