After we found out we were having a little girl we then got the fun time of deciding a name for her. You may be asking yourself where did they get Molly Frances from - well a little from the internet and a little from family. Jon and I looked names up online for a day or two and it was a tad bit overwhelming to say the least!!! But each time we kept going to names that started with M - like Meagan, Mackenzie, Madison, Molly, etc. One night we put our top names down and after trying them out a few times - you know the I love you style, the get over here now style and the plain old everyday style we really liked how Molly McPherson sounded in each category. Now Frances on the other hand was one of the we decided once we knew we were having a girl we would like to work it into the name somehow so we needed a first name that would go with Frances. Jon and I both have grandmothers whose middle name is Frances and we both liked the idea of somehow incorporating a family name it into our little girl's. All of our grandmothers are wonderful women and we hope that Molly gets a little of each of them in her but Frances was by far the easiest to use trust me - we had Donnie Mae, Hattie Frances, Mary Frances and Jean. So after 3 nights of testing it out we decided that we are going to name our little girl Molly Frances McPherson!!
You might say that she is already a bit spoiled and she hasn't even come yet. For my birthday both my mom and Jon's mom sent me a present along with Molly. I got some great scrap booking supplies from the McP's which is how I got to make Molly's first sign and we have already hung the gender neutral outfits both mom's gave us before they knew that they got to be grandmothers to a little girl. The picture to the right is one of Molly's first girly outfit that Jon and I both love(!!!) my aunt Terry brought it to me right before I fly back to Alaska from Tennessee. While I have never been a fan of pink on myself I will be dressing Molly in the occasional pink outfit for those wondering- I don't want people to think she is a boy - however her entire wardrobe will NOT be pink (I am all for diversity of color).
We have a little over 5 months to go now until Molly will make her appearance (YEAH) but that also means that Jon will be leaving in a little over 5 months (BOO).
Life is Alaska is getting settled now - the mountains now have snow on the top of them working its way down to us! The temp stays around 50 degrees and it rains on and off all week long.
