The Sellman Family

Now I am caught up with the blog!!  Sorry there are so many posts all at one time!  So what is going on now?  Mollie is walking all over the place!  She still enjoys giving hugs, blowing kisses, waving, and getting into everything.  Mia is still enjoying school and gymnastics, and that is keeping us busy.  Daddy is still playing church softball, and they have won 3 games now!  The girls and I are heading to Asheboro for the weekend with Aunt Jen and Carter to get all of our hair cut.  So hopefully next week there will be pictures of Mollie's first haircut!


Here are a few random pictures:

First NCSU game

We attended our first NCSU game of the season Labor Day weekend.  We didn't get tickets last year because Mollie had just been born, but we were excited to get tickets again this year.  The girls did really well and had a good time.

Welcome Carter...our newest member of the family.

Aunt Jen and Unkie welcomed their baby boy, Carter David on August 24 at 11:14 pm after a very long labor.  He weighed 7 pounds 3 ounces and was 21 inches long.  They are all doing well, and the girls love their new cousin.  Mollie is very jealous, but hopefully she will grow out of that soon.


Proud Parents.

Greensboro Science Center

In the middle of August, we met some of my best friends and their kids at the Greensboro Science Center.  We spent almost the whole day there, and the kids had a ball!  There was so much for them to do.

The kiddos....Lindy, Berkley, Mia, Mollie, Riley, Will, and Riley's friend.

Mia started gymnastics at the end of July...minus one week where she was really tired and didn't want to participate, she has really enjoyed it.  She and Mackenzie are taking together, so I think that is why she is loving it so much.  We have been impressed with how much they have them doing already!  Front rolls, hand stands, trying splits, strength training, balance beam, etc.

Look Whoo's One!

I can't believe our baby girl turned 1 July 16th!!!  We had a little family party for Mollie with Memaw, Paw Paw, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt Jen, Unkie, Aunt Nancy, Uncle Greg, Mackenzie, and Zach.  The theme was "Look Whoo's Turning One!"  Everyone seemed to have a good time.  I know I am biased, but Mollie really is one of the sweetest babies ever.  She waves at everyone, blows kisses, and gives out lots of hugs.  She can get a smile out of just about anyone.


Mollie was standing on her own and getting close to walking, and then we had a little setback right after her birthday.  She got toxic synovitis, which is basically where a virus can settle in your hip, and is very painful.  It's apparently more common in boys ages 3-6.  She woke up on Monday after her birthday and could not put any weight on her leg at all.  She wouldn't even crawl and was very fussy and obviously in pain.  Luckily we had an appointment with the doctor that day, and he told us that was what she had.  It was a full two weeks before she was back to normal, but thankfully everything was ok.

Ocean Isle July 4th

Yes, I am playing catch up yet again.  We went to Ocean Isle Beach this year for a week at the 4th of July.  The girls really enjoyed spending time with Memaw, Paw Paw, Aunt Jen, aunts, uncles, and cousins.  Mia especially liked getting to play with Madison all week.  She loved the ocean and playing in the sand.  Mollie really warmed up to the water and sand too!  Here are some pictures.
