9 Months Old Today

Hey everyone! McKenzie Grace is 9 months old today! We can't believe it! Time is fling by. To celebrate her turning 9 months for breakfast this morning she got to try a Chick-fil-A biscuit! She loved it! Then we got a very special phone call all the way from Africa this morning. It was precious Uncle Jeffrey! He called to wish McKenzie a happy 9 months! While we were on the phone with him McKenzie decided she would try to climb the stairs. I was going right behind her. She has only ever made it about the 5th stair and then she sits down and waits to be carried back down. Not today! She climbed the entire staircase today all by herself! She is getting so strong and pulls up on everything. We go on Monday for her 9 Month check up and shots. I will let you know how that goes.

Jeffrey is having an amazing day today in Africa. He found a special needs boarding school 5 minutes from his house. There are about 35 students that live there most of the year and on weekends too. He has already fallen in love with a Down Syndrome boy there. He plans to go back tomorrow and visit again. He took care of a man with Down Syndrome when he lived in Greenville, SC and he absolutely loves and misses him tons. Jeffrey was saying today how awesome God is because that was the one thing that was missing in his life in Africa, a person with special needs that he could care for. Now he has found not only one but several! God is truly faithful!

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)

McKenzie loves her jumper still!

Riding her pony all over town!

Again, riding her pony.

Pulling books off the shelf!

Reading the books and crawling all over them!

Trying her very first Chick-fil-A biscuit today!

Hi Megan,
Happy 9 months to McKenzie! I love the picture of her riding her pony. She's such a beautiful little girl. Isn't it amazing how fast they grow?!
