Low key week

Howdy y'all! Hope everyone is enjoying this unseasonably warm January weather. I've been wearing t-shirts to work this week because the people who control the thermostat here at Ole Miss didn't get the memo that it's not 30 degrees outside and have been blasting the heat! Who would have ever thought I'd have my window open in January??!

Not much going on around the Peterson house this week. Haley is back in the swing of things at school. Her teachers tell us that she is "very well behaved and incredibly smart" We are thankful that she is well behaved at school...if only she could carry that behavior home...with time I'm sure she will. Her teacher stopped me the other day and said that she is always the first one to yell the answers when they ask questions such as "What color starts with the letter Y?" And of course, our little dramatic child doesn't just say "YELLOW" She has to sing "Y-E-L-L-O-W SPELLS YELLOW" She's quite the comedian. Ethan and I both think that she will be into theater someday. She loves to play dress up, it's the first thing she wants to do when she gets home. And once she warms up to the "crowd" she always wants to perform. She's such a joy to have around...most of the time :)

Little Miss Mackensy is getting big and smart right before our eyes. This week however, she has been home with Ethan most of the week. Monday night she came home with a fever and just can't seem to kick it. Thankfully it hasn't gotten super high, and there are no other symptoms. Just fever. We had this happen with Haley a lot, called a "fever virus" so we are just riding it out. As of this morning she was fever free...praying it stays that way. Ethan is ready to go back to work, and I know Mackensy needs to get back into her regular routine. The only plus side to all of this is our very busy little toddler has been VERY cuddly this week. Something about a baby wanting you to hold them that just melts my heart every time.

Talking about her getting big...she is certainly long and lean, just like Haley was at this age. She never got as heavy as Haley did, but she is certainly thinning out just as Haley did after she started walking. This morning, we were getting ready and in walks Mackensy, who is usually followed by Haley. Well, this morning, Mackensy was all by herself....we wondered, who did she get out of the room...and low and behold Haley was still sleeping...SO...Mackensy has learned (and gotten tall enough) to open doors. The world as we know it will never be the same :)

I hope everyone has a wonderful weekend! No new pictures to post today, but hopefully we'll get some new family pictures soon!

Until next time...
