Look Mom... NO hands

Makenzie is a big girl now. She is sitting up and reaching for toys. I just love how everyday is something new and exciting. 5 months old and growing everyday.

I just love it

Makenzie Sue had her first taste of rice cereal today. The dr. told us a few weeks ago we could start giving it to her, but we have just not gotten around to it. We have the goods: the rice cereal, the bibs, the spoons and bowls; just not the time to start. Well, our good friends Travis and Lauren watched Kenzie today while I was at work. It was time. Lauren gave her the first taste. When the bowl was empty, Makenzie wasn't and wanted more. I just love this little girl. 5 months old and growing everday.

Lost Camera

Matt and I misplaced our camera for the past little while. We finally found it in my purse! I tend to not carry a purse these days. A baby, a diaperbag, and myself is already too much. Thus, we lose the keys, the phone and the camera ALOT.

This is my last weekend before I go back to school. :( Well, I went back last week, but the kids come back tomorrow. It is very bittersweet, more bitter than sweet. There is nothing like dropping your baby off in the morning, still asleep, still in her PJs and off to work. But, at the same time - you do what you have to in order to survive. I am so lucky, Matt is so lucky; moreover, Makenzie is so lucky to have family and friends (thanks Britt) to watch her during the work week. She will bounce around with her cousin Emery to different houses while I am at Mesquite. I feel so blessed to have in-laws who are excited at the opportunity to watch her, love her, and see her grow. I know she is in the best hands possible (besides mine).

On this last hoo-rah of a weekend, we went up to Show Low to escape this heat. Matt, Dave, Morgan, and Thos decided it would be fun to go to Sunrise, take the ski lift up, and mountain bike down - 6 times! Luckily, no one was injured. Makenize and I, on the other hand, took the opportunity to hang out. We went to Lamell's, as usual, and took almost a 3 hour nap together. What a wonderful life we live.

Thanks Annie and Trever for a wonderful weekend and lots of fun.
