Busy Weekend

McKenzie loves green beans!

Cereal and Bananas...McKenzie really doesn't like bananas. I thought she would eat them up because they are sweet.

First meal in the highchair from Uncle Jeff!
Last night-9/20/08

Tate and McKenzie hugging! They really just did that! We did not place their arms around each other! Precious!

McKenzie has started to notice her cousin Tate. Sweet Tate resting his hand on Kenzie's leg!

Hey! We hope all of you had a wonderful weekend! We sure did! Friday, McKenzie and I met Auntie Amber and Tate for lunch by Stonecrest Mall. McKenzie and I were on our way to Madison to see Nana and Papa T for the night. We took Tate to Madison with us. Uncle B and Auntie Amber had a retreat to go on with their church. McKenzie and Tate got to go to Nana's school on Friday and visit her! Nana was so excited to see her babies and show them off! By the time we got back to Nana's house it was almost time for dinner and neither Tate nor Kenzie had napped all day. (Since McKenzie has started to nap, she gets very tired when she doesn't have one!) Both babies were in bed by 8:00 on Friday night. McKenzie slept until 7 am the next morning, but Tate woke up a few times! Uncle Steve came by on Friday night to see his niece and nephew. He rocked Tate to sleep and McKenzie just screamed every time she looked at him! It was pretty funny!

Saturday both babies were rested and ready to play. It was the first time that McKenzie really noticed Tate there. Before she just kind of touched him and reached for him. This time she looked and looked at him. She was just studying his face. It was so sweet. Of course, Tate noticed McKenzie a long time ago so he just looked right back at her. They are so cute together.

McKenzie and I left Madison around 2 and drove home. On Saturday night we went to our neighborhood block party. It was lots of fun. It was a cookout with door prizes! We won a Mum! It is sitting on our front step and hopefully we won't kill it!

Today we got up early. Jason had a meeting this morning at church at 8 am. I had a meeting there at 9:15. I met Jason in the parking lot and he helped me get all of our stuff and Kenzie into the church. Jason took McKenzie to life group with him. We still did not want to put her in the nursery today. She is still on her Amoxicillin and I did not want to chance her getting sick again or getting anyone else sick. She is feeling much better though. However, being on this medicine has made her not want to eat. She still drinks all her bottles but she has not wanted her cereal or vegetables all week. I brought McKenzie home after my meeting and Jason went on to work media team for the church service. When he got home I was putting McKenzie down for a nap and he made the nicest lunch for us. He grilled steaks, made baked potatoes, green beans, and even cut up a fresh salad. It was so yummy and sweet! After lunch he insisted that I go and take a nap while McKenzie was napping and he would clean up the kitchen! So, I did!! McKenzie took another great nap today, about 3 1/2 hours! I slept for 2 1/2 hours! It was wonderful! When McKenzie woke up we played and then she did eat her rice cereal tonight. She only ate it after I put some green beans in it. Tonight was the first time trying green beans. She loved them! Kenzie loves the green baby foods: peas and now green beans! It is so funny! After she ate we walked the neighborhood, she got a bath and bottle and went off to bed.

We had a fabulous weekend and we hope that you did too!

Great post! It was very informative. I am glad to see that y'all had a great weekend. I wish I could say so much, I had a terrible stomach virus. Glad to see Kenzie doing so great and feeling better. She is so beautiful. See you soon!
