Sleepy Baby

DJ was watching Makenna the other day and after he fed her he put her in the living room and gave her some carrots to eat. He had tried to get her to take a nap earlier that day but she wouldn't (big surprise!). So she was very sleepy. She was eating her carrots and watching tv. Then she fell asleep in her highchair. In the video she fell asleep and then she startled herself and woke up. This is too cute!

She's The Cutest

Sometimes I just can't believe how cute Makenna is. I can't believe she is my daughter. Thank goodness she looks like her dad! Here are some pictures DJ's mom took of her. Last night she started taking 7-8 steps at a time. She was walking just like it was no big deal. And all this without us making her. She has been taking steps but not on her own. DJ and I would have to sit in the floor across from each other and she would walk to us. But last night she just took off on her own. Very soon she will be walking everywhere.

DJ's mom put her in front of a mirror they have in the hall. She gave herself kisses.


She is so cute!!

DJ's mom dressed her up in this cute dress and took pictures of her.


I could just eat her up!!


The cutest baby I've ever seen!!!

Stinky Makenna

Makenna thinks the weirdest things are funny. One day I smelled her butt and told her that she was stinky. She just laughed. She thought it was hilarious. So, we started smelling her and telling her she was stinky to get her to laugh. Every time we do it she laughs so hard. Here is a video of her.

Valentine's Presents

Makenna is a very blessed girl. She has so many people who love her. For Valentine's Day her nana got her an outfit and a really cute dog that sings. Her grandma and grandpa got her a toy that she can push around and converts to a toy she can ride when she is older. She loves both of them. She dances to the dog when you turn him on. She pushes her toy around the living room until she runs into the wall. Then you have to turn her around and she goes the other direction. She will do this until you make her stop. Thanks grandma, grandpa and Nana. We love you.

Random Pictures

I have been so busy with my new job lately that I haven't been very good about posting new pictures of Makenna. So here are some pictures of her adventures lately.

This is Makenna and her friend Nash. Nash is the son of Chris, DJ's best friend.



This is Makenna eating her new favorite toys. They are pieces to a bbq grill that her Mimi bought her. They are plastic ketchup and mustard bottles and a spatula and grilling fork. She loves them. She just carries them around all day.


Makenna hates it when I vacuum, it scares her. Her dad loves it because she snuggles with him.


Raider hates it when I vacuum too.

This is her dad's idea of doing her hair!


As most of you have seen Makenna now has a play room. The gate to the play room is not yet bolted to the wall. Makenna has discovered this and figured out how to escape. I caught her one day on her way out of the play room.



Makenna's room is very strange. It is freezing in the winter and burning up in the summer. So, we bought some very thick thermal lined curtains to put up in her room to try and help regulate the temperature. My wonderful handyman husband put them up. I think they look great. And they seem to be helping with the temperature.

Look At This!!

We went to pick Makenna up from DJ's parent's house tonight. They have a firetruck that was DJ's when he was little. She loves to play with it. DJ's mom got it out and showed me how she plays with it. She walks behind it and pushes it!!!! All by herself!! Can you believe it!! I was so amazed I just stared at her. I couldn't believe she was walking by herself and pushing that fire truck! Here is a video of it.

Tired Today

For some reason I'm very tired today. Makenna slept all night last night, again, which was awesome. Then she slept in late, which is usual for her. But despite all of that I have been exhausted all day for some reason. I was going to take a nap when she did but she didn't take a very good nap today. I put her down at 1:15 and she woke up at 1:40. I heard her fussing but she wasn't crying so I usually let her fuss cause sometimes she will go back to sleep. I listened to her making noise for about 15 minutes and then she started to cry so I went in there to get her. She was standing up in her crib. She had thrown her pacy out of her crib and taken her socks off and she was holding one sock in her hand. She is so crazy. I reswaddled her and put her back down. After some fussing she fell asleep but only for about 1 hour. So needless to say she was not very pleasant the rest of the day because she was sleepy and wouldn't take a nap. So, I'm going to bed soon. Hopefully I won't feel so tired tomorrow.
On a different note, I'm so sick of this cold weather. I can't wait for it to get warm. It has been sunny the last few days but so cold we can't go outside and enjoy it. Even if I'm inside I just hate knowing that its cold outside. I'm so ready for Spring and warmer weather. On another note I have some video of Makenna that I will post soon. I just need DJ to edit for me so it isn't so long. Hopefully it will be soon. She has this new thing where she thinks its funny when we tell her she is stinky. I got her laughing about it on video. I also have one of her playing in the tub. Well, I guess I should go to bed since I talked about how tired I am.

A Tooth?

I think Makenna might be getting a tooth. She has been congested for the past few days and she has been drooling a lot. She is constantly chewing on her fingers or her toys, even more so than usual. DJ and I both thought that we felt a bump on her bottom gums. Her bottom gums are definitely not at thick as they used to be. Now whether she is really getting a tooth or not I don't know. I guess we'll find out. Knowing Makenna it could be another 3 months before she the tooth. But I'm definitely not complaining because I'm still nursing her so the sooner she gets a tooth, the sooner I start getting bit! Another amazing thing has happened the last 4 nights. She has slept through the night! For 4 nights in a row!! All night long!!! That is amazing for Makenna!! One night she slept from 10:30pm to 9:00am without waking up once!! WOW!! Can you tell I'm excited!
