A Painful Little Tooth and a Full Week

Hey everyone! I am sorry it has taken me so long to post another blog, it has been crazy here. Jason's Aunt and cousin from FL came up on Tuesday and left yesterday. They came to get some of our extra furniture for Michelle's (Jason's cousin) new apartment. It was so good to see them. We always have so much fun with them! I was in the kitchen working on dinner and Michelle was palying with McKenzie and she held her up so that she could see me in the kitchen and McKenzie just started to wave to me! It was the sweetest thing ever! So now McKenzie can wave all by herself! :)

As you know from my last post McKenzie has a tooth on the bottom. Well it has really started to come in. That poor little girl has had such a hard time getting this tooth. She has had a fever, diarrhea, and been very "Mommy needy." Wednesday was the worst, she just could not get comfortable. She didn't want to play or be set down. She just wanted me to hold her so that is what I did. Yesterday she was much better with a little pain here and there. She has been up lots at night with this tooth though because the pain from it wakes her up. So bless her little heart, she is still sleeping this morning.

McKenzie is crawling all over the place now and has already unwrapped 3 presents that are not hers! She loves to pull the bows off the presents under the tree and chew on them! She is so funny! She also has started to pull up now. McKenzie pulls up on anything that is still long enough so that she can stand, including Baxter! Baxter has been so good to her, he just stands there and lets her pull his fur until she is standing and then he stands ever so still until she falls over and then he licks her as if to say..."Good Job!" Then McKenzie claps for herself and laughs!

I have started to give McKenzie some "real" food here and there. She seems to be over baby food. She doesn't really eat much of it any more. So, I thought what could it hurt. She loves mashed potatoes, crackers, and even will eat a real banana! My girl who eats NO fruit from a jar loves the real thing! Can you blame her?

We have another busy weekend planned. We are off to Jason's grandparents new house for the night. Jason and I have his work Christmas Party tonight so his grandparents will be watching McKenzie. Tomorrow we have Christmas at their house with the whole family. It will be fun! Granny is such a good cook! This Sunday we have our amazing service about Christ's birth at church. We look forward to that each year! Sunday afternoon McKenzie's friend Brock is having his 2nd birthday so we are off to a party for him! Sunday night we have Christmas with our friends Erin and Jason. What a busy but fun weekend we have ahead of us!

We hope that all of you are enjoying is wonderful time of year!

I enjoyed reading the post - as always! I hope that you had a great time at Granny and Grandaddy's. It was hard today not being there. This was the first time in my entire life that I have not celebrated Christmas at Granny's! I bet it was weird not being at their normal house, but I hear their new house is great. I sure do love y'all so much. You story about Kenzie and Baxter was so great. I could just see that going down! Please give her a big hug and kiss from me! Hope she is feeling better. Love y'all and Merry Christmas! -Uncle Tubb
