A Quick CatchUp

Hey everyone! Sorry it has been so long since I have posted. We have been staying busy but nothing really exciting to report. Last week all three of us had the stomach virus at the same time. Talk about fun! As you can imagine those days are a blur. Thursday of last week we went to Young Harris to visit with Grandma and Papa. We had a great time there and came home on Saturday.

This week we had a play date with Brock and Braylen on Tuesday. They both ended up kissing McKenzie before they left! It was priceless! Good thing her Daddy was not home! It is so great to have play dates with other little kiddos. McKenzie loves to have people over and play with others besides just me.

Tuesday night we had super club and Eric and Katie came. It was a blast! Eric brought McKenzie two books. She loves them and looks at them all the time. So sweet he is!

Today, Friday we were supposed to meet up with Cousin Tate and Auntie Amber but the weather was so nasty we cancelled it. We had awful rain her today most of the day with loud thunder and lightning. We did not want to get the little ones out in such so we stayed home. We are looking very forward to next Saturday though, Tate will be one! We have his first birthday party to go to! We can't even believe how fast these babies are growing!

Tomorrow we are headed to Heflin, AL to visit with Jason's great-grandmother. We are hoping to visit the cousins also. It will be a fun trip!

McKenzie continues to grow! Her favorite thing to do these days is climb the stairs and look over the catwalk into the living room. She could do it by the hour! She really gets excited when someone is down there waving at her or she spots Baxter on the couch! She laughs out loud and then of course squeals also! She now has 7 teeth, 3 on top and 4 on the bottom. Her 4th top one is cutting in now, soon she will have 8! She has really started to learn what they are used for also. She has already started biting. I am not sure how biting just happens but I guess it is just instinct. I think that she is just trying to figure out what her teeth are for. She bites her spoons now too. Hopefully this shall pass soon. She gets told NO every time! However, she loves to have her teeth brushed and that now is part of our bedtime routine! She has also started to get up twice in the night again. I am not excited about this at all. She drinks a full bottle each time. She eats a good dinner but I guess she is just growing. She does not go back to sleep until her bottle is gone. I have tried to let her cry but she just cries and cries until she eats, so I guess right now she must be growing. I hope that is the case and that this too shall pass quickly! McKenzie has really begun to chatter. She says MaMa all the time and has started to look at me when she says it. So I am guessing that she is making the association now. She also says BaBa for her bottle. We are working very hard on DaDa! Jason fells bad she does not call him yet. That is about all that is new with our little Kenzie Grace.

We hope you all have a wonderful weekend! :)
