This week was full of firsts for Mackenzie. This past Sunday she went to Bible Class for the first time. I stayed in there and she did fine for most of the time. The only time she got a little fussy was because 2 other children were crying. It won't take long for her to realize, she has to be a little quicker when reaching for things. The older children were quick to take toys from the newbie! :)
Another first was her first bath in the big tub. I was waiting for her to be able to sit up fairly well before I moved to the big tub. After some of the stuff I read about babies getting scared of the vastness of the big tub and the sounds of the running water and drain, I was a little nervous, but she did great! In fact, she loves it. (Erin, you might notice something familiar in the corner of the picture.) She doesn't mind water in her face and she loves to try and grab at the floating ducks in the water.
Last, but not least was her first trip to the grocery store yesterday. Once again, I was waiting for her to be able to sit in the front of the grocery cart, so yesterday was our first trip. And again, she did great. I see many more trips in our future! :)
On another note, I picked up something special at Babies R Us when we were there yesterday. It's nice to know that Mackenzie's name isn't so unusual that she won't be able to find things with her name on them. Don't get me wrong, I love my name, but I've never had anything that had my name on it, unless it was especially made for me. They didn't have her name on a sippy cup, but they did on this cup. It's not something she'll use any time soon, but we'll use it eventually.
