Well Molly clearly likes to be picked up, cause she jumps up to get you to do so. To make her come to you on a regular basis, try daily training sessions (Have you thought about training classes) Put her on a leash and start off by lureing her with food or simply reward her when she does just walk up to you on her own. Try not to say anything in the beginning. Dogs really don't understand human language, so you may be simply rewarding her for staying put. Save the praise and talking for when the puppy does well. Try not to shower attention on the puppy all the time. After a few lures and successes, start adding the word come, say it only once, so she doesn't start to wait till youve said "come" 15 times to actually come to you. good Luck
