Mackensy is a month old!!!

In this post Haley is 2 years, 7 months and 5 days old, and Mackensy is 1 month old!

Hello blog world! Look at me posting like I'm supposed to! Well, life in the Peterson household is great. Mackensy is growing, Haley is great, Ethan and I are doing well too. Life is good!

Let's start with Mackensy. She is now on a solid 4 hour schedule, eating every 4 hours, awake for about a hour to a hour and a half after each feeding. She cries when she's ready to go down and once she's swaddles tends to settle pretty quickly. She's eating 4 ounces ever 4 hours and gaining weight like a champ. I took her yesterday to be weighed and she's up to 8lbs 3oz! Woo hoo!!!

Haley is doing great too. She is such a wonderful big sister and really loves Mackensy. She wants to hold her often, is interested in helping to feed her, and always wants to say prayers with her at night before bed. It is the sweetest thing ever. We'll try and get it on video and post it for all to see.

Ethan and I are doing well also. I am coming to the end of my maternity leave, I'll be going back to work on August the 9th. Mom is going to take off a week and keep Mackensy for us and then she'll start going to Kim's with Haley on August 16th. She did this with Haley as well and it's just nice being able to go see her at lunch during that first week back.

We've had a great time the past two weeks with my nephew Elijah here. He came to visit for 2 weeks and his mom and dad are on thier way to get him today. We've kept him very busy, he attended Fire Camp with the Oxford Fire Department the first week he was here, and this week he has been going to Rebel Quest at Ole Miss. I think he's had a great time and Haley sure has enjoyed having him around. I think she's going to be sad when he goes home for good. We all will. He's a great kid with a lot of energy and it's not fun that we don't get to see him all the time.

I've attched some pictures for your viewing pleasure. I'll take some of Mackensy today and post them later. I hope everyone is well and thanks for reading!
