Exersaucer fun!

The other night, Brandon decided to put Mackenzie in a walker we had been given from one of my coworkers. We weren't sure we were going to keep it because there isn't much room in our house for her to maneuver the walker around. Based on Mackenzie's reaction, I think we'll keep it in the kitchen for her to use while I'm cooking dinner. So at 3 months she is not by any means moving it around, but she did stay there quite content for probably close to 20 minutes. While 20 minutes may not seem like a lot to some people, it's amazing what I can get done in 20 minutes with TWO free hands! Since she enjoyed the walker so much, Brandon put together the exersaucer and she enjoyed that for a little while also. Here's to many more fun times in the walker and exersaucer!

I know she looks so small in the seat, but she really did enjoy it!
She kind of just hung there and let her feet touch the ground. I think she might have pushed up once or twice. Eventually she'll get the hang of it!
Fun in the exersaucer!

Wedding Bells

Yesterday, my "little" brother (he's at least 6'3") got married. All of us sisters and our parents were very proud!

His WIFE is perfect for him and the two of them together are so cute! She looked very beautiful and he was so handsome. Don't they look so in love!

Kelsey is an only child, so while we all gained a new sister, she gained 3!

Congratulations and Best Wishes Ryan and Kelsey!

We Survived!

Well, we survived the first day of day care today. To help Mackenzie and myself to transition to full time school and work, Mackenzie started day care today. She will go half days for the remainder of the month and start full time in January. I only cried a little...that's my story and I'm stickin' to it! :) In 3 1/2 hours they figured out that Mackenzie is normally rocked to sleep or atleast held until she falls asleep. They said they tried a bouncy seat, then the crib and then finally she fell asleep in the swing. Of course, I knew she would do fine and I was only worried about myself. To take my mind off of not being with her at home, I went shopping at Target and Famous Footwear. This could be an expensive week if I keep this up! Just kidding...the rest of the week I need to clean up and organize the house before I go back to work. As far as the afternoons go, I'm soaking up every minute with her and enjoying every minute of my last 3 weeks at home!

Is it just me or has the holiday season really gone by fast? I keep thinking Christmas is still a long way off and yet it's only 11 days away! I decided not to decorate this year or put a tree up, so that is probably why I don't feel like it's Christmas. I've done most of my shopping, but I still have a few more people to buy for and I only have 11 days! While this might seem like a lot of days, Mackenzie is still not where I can go run errands with her. If I went to the store with her I would probably have to be prepared to leave my cart in the middle of the store to go home. I guess that is always an option if I get really desperate to shop. Another thing that usually gets me in the Christmas spirit is Christmas music. I usually listen to my Christmas CD's in the car the entire month of December, but this year I haven't put any in. We also were unable to go to either of our work Christmas parties this year which usually signals that Christmas is around the corner.

Last night we went to Couples Bunko which was kind of like a Christmas party and tonight our Life Group from Church is having a White Elephant exchange so we are slowly getting into the Christmas spirit. We also bought all of Mackenzie's presents a couple of weeks ago, so Christmas morning should be fun. All we plan to do is lay her on a blanket and pile all her stuff around her! There is no need to wrap anything seeing as how she isn't even sitting up on her own!

So, I guess let the countdown begin...less than 11 days until Christmas...ready or not!

Dressed for Snow

Apparently I missed the snow flurries our area had yesterday. I got on the internet last night and everyone was talking about snow. I looked out our window and nothing! In honor of the possibility of snow, here's a picture of Mackenzie in one of her new outfits. We'll just pretend it was that cold in our house! :)

Most of you know Mackenzie was breech which is why I had to have a c-section. Not only did she not turn head down, but she was basically folded in half. Her feet were up by her head. Our doctor warned us that her legs would not be down or curled up like most babies and she was right...

This is Mackenzie just a few hours after she was born. The only way to get her legs together was to swaddle her. All breech babies are required to have a hip ultrasound to make sure nothing is wrong after being in that position for so long. So, after 2 ultrasounds and 11 weeks, Mackenzie's hips have been declared "normal"! If anything, she's just a little bit more flexible than most babies! :) She also still has the tendency to not sit so lady like. We'll have to work on that in the years to come.

Early Christmas

Mackenzie had her first Christmas this past weekend and slept right through it! She woke up after we had opened all the presents and let me play "dress up" with her and her new clothes! :)
For the last 2 years my family has gone to Fredericksburg the first weekend in December to watch the Christmas Parade. This year was even better because my parents had recently bought some property with a house where the whole family could stay instead of at a hotel. Mackenzie did great on the drive up. She slept for the first 2 1/2 hours - she woke up when we came to a stop in San Antonio. We stopped and had lunch in Boerne and then she went back to sleep for the last hour. We intended to take her to the parade and had her all bundled up in the sling with a hat and big blanket, but she DID NOT like the cold weather. She screamed/cried while we were outside for max 10 minutes and continued to cry the entire 20 minute ride home. Once we got home and she warmed up she went right to sleep and slept through the night!
The rest of the weekend was great and my family exchanged gifts and had fun visiting with eachother. Mackenzie received lots of clothes, books, toys and of course some of her first Christmas ornaments. The ride home started off okay, but was a little rough the rest of the way home. We ended up going through Austin on the way home instead of San Antonio like the way up. While this isn't a big difference for us drive wise, it is for Mackenzie. Going through Austin means taking a Highway instead of an Interstate. Highway means lights, slower speeds and traffic. Interstate means fast speeds and clear sailing. For Mackenzie, who does not care for her car seat and does not like to slow down or stop, highways are horrible! Luckily for Christmas in a few weeks we'll be on I-45 the entire trip to Dallas!
I only took 3 pictures the entire trip - I guess I was a little busy. :)
From left, my sisters Amanda & Courtney, my soon to be sister-in-law Kelsey and my brother Ryan. I know the picture may not look like we're having fun, but we are! :)
This is how Mackenzie spent the evening. This is part of the outfit Mackenzie let me play "dress up" with. My mom bought an adorable outfit from Gymboree and I absolutely love it. Maybe I'll post a picture of her with it on sometime this week.

The Addiction

Since most of my blog readers are also now my "friends" on Facebook, you know that I have recently started an account on Facebook. Can I just say that I thought reading blogs and posting blogs was an addiction...that is until Facebook! :) In the last few days I've gotten on the computer to look on facebook more times than I can count! Yes, I'm still feeding and caring for Mackenzie, but in any spare moment I'm in here on the computer. Yesterday I even pulled her play gym in here so she could play while I searched for "friends". I'm hoping the newness will wear off before I go back to work in January because I'm pretty sure I won't be allowed to be on the internet that much. For those that don't know facebook, when you log in at the top of your "wall" there is a place for you to say what you are doing. The other day I said that I was enjoying some free time while Mackenzie is sleeping. I haven't written anything since because I usually am doing the same thing when I'm on the computer! I feel kind of boring. :) So for those of you who blog and do facebook, do you post the same things on both sites? Are you addicted to facebook also? I'm determined to reduce the amount of tme on facebook this week. I might have to make it my New Years resolution!
