My Little Baby

McKenzie is 6 months old and it is so hard for ME to believe. Scott and I had a conversation that went like this.

M:"Scott can you believe that Kenzie is 6 months old"?
S: silence... he's watching tv
M:"Scott can you believe that Kenzie is 6 months old"?
S: turns to look at me and gives the "that's great honey" face
M:"Scott do YOU REALIZE that in 6 more months she will be a year??"
S:"Yep that is normally how it works Mari..."

So there you go. A man vs a woman...or should I say a mom vs. a dad. To a mom each month that has gone by is so sad because their little baby is growing up and you go look at newborn pictures and remember when....and to a dad they are just 6 months old and ol' so cute, but they are 6 months old.

McKenzie is doing great and has really started to have a cute personality. She loves when people talk to her and play with her, but nothing compares to her brother. Ryan can be throwing a fit on the floor or just walking down the stairs and when she sees him she starts smiling, panting and waving her arms and legs. Even though he pulls on her every limb, pounces on her head and drags her from place to place by her arms she seems to love it. She will defiantly be one tough cookie when she gets older.

She is eating baby food and truly enjoys it. Just this week she started getting on her hands and knees in the crawling position and scoots herself backwards. I will put her on the living room rug on her tummy and when I get back in the room she is crying because she is half way down the hall feet first.  Poor thing!!!

Most of the time McKenzie is an easy going baby, but she now is starting to let us know when she is not happy. She has a very interesting loud screeching cry that makes your face and eyes do weird things when you hear it and makes you stop in your tracks and run to pick her up...yep mission accomplished. She is a smart little thing. She is sleeping 11-12 hours and loves her bed. We are having sitting up 101 classes and she is getting better, but I am thinking she may crawl before she sits up. :) She is 27 1/2 inches tall and weights 16 1/2 lbs. She is in the 90% in height and 50% in weight.

What a true blessing. There are days I just can't stop squeezing and kissing her. She is too cute and I can't keep my hands off of her.

I love watching tv
Look I am on my knees
Oh my gosh I can't believe I just did that
I am so cute I can't stand it
