A few new ones

My little artist! Her first time coloring, she made a card for daddy. Though, she didn't get very far before she decided to eat the crayon.

And then she decided she wanted to play in the empty garbage can, ewwww.

...Mackenzie got to meet her Grandpa!! My dad's trucking company sent him on a delivery out here from the East Coast. We met up with him on Thursday in North Bend. We haven't seen my parents in 4 years! Can you believe that? I miss them so much! Mom wasn't on the truck with dad this time though so that was a bummer. It was so great to see him. Mackenzie did great meeting him. She pretty much just acted like she kinda knew him but hadn't seen him in a long time. She was reluctant to let him hold her but she sure did smile a lot and let him feed her pears. We only got to see him for a few hours but I'd give anything for 5 minutes with him. He is such a great man, and he has the kindest heart. Now, we just need to get my mom out here! We were going to fly out to Virginia this summer but since Mackenzie is having so much trouble with constant ear infections, we decided that we didn't want to make her even more uncomfortable with the cabin pressure. I'm trying to talk mom into flying out here though. Here are the pictures from their meeting!

1 year check up

Mackenzie's stats at 1 year old:
Weight: 17lbs 10oz
Length: 27 3/4 inches
Head: 18 inches

Overall Mackenzie is doing great! She has lost a very tiny bit of weight since she started walking which the doctor says is normal. The doctor would like us to start weening her off of formula and bottle which we have kind of already started. She has been using sippy cups for a while now but she refuses to drink formula out of them. We also started her on organic whole milk about 2 months ago, we can't tell if she likes it or not. She doesn't refuse it but she doesn't like the coolness of it. She will drink that from a sippy cup if it's warmed a little. Picky girl. Her favorite foods are cheese sandwiches, bananas, mandarin oranges, sweet potatoes, oh and her birthday cake. We are preparing to get her the stage up car seat, still rear facing though since she hasn't hit the 20lb mark yet. She is sleeping VERY well and she now does not require me to rock her to sleep which is a very BIG blessing. I do rock her for a few minutes before laying her down. But she is awake when she is put in her crib and she will put herself to sleep. More study time for me! We will be taking her out of daycare for the summer since I will be out of school. I'm looking forward to the time with her more than you can imagine.
