In this post Haley s 3 years and 20 days old and Mackensy is 6 months and 15 days old
So this post wont include any pictures becuase I am not at the computer with the pictures on it, but I wanted to blog to include some things I want to remember....
1st- Mackensy is doing great. She is growing so fast. Very hard to believe tha she is 6 months old already. She sleeps on her belly, she doesn't take a pacifier, and she sucks her left thumb when she is tired. She is eating stage two foods to go with her bottles and she loves them. She sits up fairly well on her own, though she hasn't mastered it yet. The first time she did without falling immediately over was Christmas day. She loves her big sister so much, and Haley love to make her smile. Haley loves to be the first person to wake Mackensy in the morning, and will sit in there talking to her saying "Hey sweet girl, hey sunshine" over and over again. Haley is by far he best at getting smiles out of Mackensy and is very proud to do so. This moring we found that Mackensy has cut BOTH of her bottom teeth! We knew this was coming based on the normalsigns, but we are just ver glad they are here :)
2nd- Haley is 3! Where in the world did the time go?! She is such a little girl now. She tries to tell me she is big, but I remind her that she's little and that's ok. She loves to come wake us up in the mornings when Momo wakes up, and after 2 weeks of Christmas break she was very sad to find this week she didn't get to crawl in the bed with us :(. I think tomorrow morning she will be elated to get the opportunity to snuggle with Mom and Dad. She loves her little sister, and tells me all the time Mackensy is her "BEEESSSST Friend" I hope that they remain that close as they grow.
3rd- Ethan and I have a niece! Kera Rae Gossett was born on Sunday, January 2nd here in Oxford. She weighed 7lbs 2oz and was 19 inches long. Rachel is doing great and she and Jason are just over the moon with this sweet little girl! We are so excited to have another girl in the family, and even more excited to watch the girls grow togehter. Kera will go to daycare where Haley and Mackensy go so we hope they are more like sisters than just cousins :)
I think that's about the sum of things. I really am going to try and do better about blogging. I won't make any promises though, as they get broken too easily.
Happy 2011 everyone, may your family be blessed in this new year as ours has!
