Has it really been since March that I posted on here?! Guess I’ve been busy…I’ve kept up with all things baby a little better on the baby blog, but now that she’s here and officially a part of the family, I think I’ll just keep this one updated. It’s been a little too long on both of them to catch up on everything, so I’ll hit the major points, post some pictures, and try to keep up better from here on out.
McKenna was born August 10 weighing in at 6lbs 7oz and 19 1/2 inches long. She’s a beautiful little girl and we love her sooo much! Recently her personality has really started to develop. She’s so happy all the time unless she’s hungry or tired. We recently started her on baby food and she loves it! She didn’t know what to think at first but by the second day she was slurping it down. She was trying to take my hand and shove the spoon into her mouth! Her technique is a little off… She’s holding her head up perfectly all on her own. She can almost sit up by herself and she isn’t crawling yet, but she’s trying to get there! She has definitely found her voice and lets us know if she feels like she’s being ignored. She loves Dad so much! I know she loves me too, but she just lights up when she sees him. It’s the cutest thing ever.
We moved in with my parents in July. We are paying off debt and saving up for a down payment on a house. It’s not the most ideal situation for anyone, but it’s working out pretty well. It’s going to be so nice to start out in our own place free of debt. I’m so excited. We’ve kind of started to look at houses but we’re not quite there yet.
I think that’s about it… 🙂
