A sweet little girl called Molly came to live with us today.

Molly’s name used to be Jeanette, but a certain newly-minted three year old declared with authority as the wrapping came off today that “her name is Molly”. Just quietly, I think Molly suits her a little better, don’t you? (Also, just quietly, with Niamh’s propensity for making up wacky and unpronounceable names, it was a bit of a relief to hear just ‘Molly’!)

Molly and Niamh seem to get along just fine. There has been a lot of “Molly & Me….” action today.

Molly came with us to playgroup, where we celebrated Three with monster cupcakes, design and details of which were overseen by the creative director herself. (I am just the hired help).

I wonder how the other mothers appreciated me dosing their young ‘uns up with sugar, chocolate and coffee laden cakes? Heh.

Happy Birthday Niamh. Life just wouldn’t be the same, sweet one.

  1. Molly is very cute, and Niamh even more so. Happy 3rd Birthday! And I reckon that the other mothers do appreciate the cake – I know I would!

  2. Happy 3rd Bday!

    The cupcakes are too cute and it looks like Niamh is loving Molly.


  3. Happy Birthday Niamh! I can’t believe you’re three already!

  4. Happy Birthday Niamh!

  5. Molly is a much better name. (Strangely, Luke doesn’t name anything, other than names like Kitty or Doggie.) Happy birthday to Niamh!

  6. Happy Birthday Niamh!

    Molly looks awesome – what a fantastic gift.

    We are just entering birthday season here in the house of Matching Pegs – starting Saturday.

    It was a pleasure to meet Molly (as well as yourself, Niamh and Rohan) on Thursday.
