For the last two weeks Mackenzie has been trying to roll over. She’d get to her side but couldn’t quite figure out how to turn her hips over. Until one day, she just figured it out.
And yes, that’s me snorting. Haha.
Little girl, you are now 4 months old! Time has flown by but everyday has been better than the last!
You have proven to be quite the excellent traveler. You spent your second overnight stay in a hotel and watched Daddy start his 3rd half marathon of the year!
It is amazing how the milestones start coming through. One day you are just staring at toys and the next you start to reach out and grab them!
This month you also had your first Halloween! We went with cousins to the pumpkin patch and you visited Mommy’s work in your adorable costume.
You are getting stronger and stronger at tummy time and are even more determined to sit up (although you still need help staying up).
Speaking of your tummy, right before you turned 4 months old, your GI doctor released you from his care! We found a balance of 1 bottle of formula was enough to help with your tummy issues.
While we tried our hardest, you are definitely more wiggly at picture time! This was the best one we got with your new teddy bear.
We love you little girl!!
On Saturday Kenzie and I headed down to Santa Ana to celebrate Ali’s (Jeff’s cousin) baby to be, Kinsley.
Ali had a princess shower theme and her sister decorated everything so cute! I loved the way the ceiling turned out.
Kenzie slept for the first part of the shower, but woke up just in time for the fun stuff.
While we were eating, we were able to fill out this cute “wishes for the princess” card. I really liked this idea!
One of the games was celebrity baby names, guess who won!? I won these cookies…they are delicious!
While Ali started to open gifts, guests enjoyed some glittery cupcakes.
It was a cute shower and baby Kinsley will be here before Christmas! Since Kenzie was all dressed up, I couldn’t pass on the picture opportunity.
When I returned from maternity leave I was assigned to a new office. They had a tradition of bringing the kids in for some office trick o’ treating. So Kenzie was able to come visit!
Later that night, Jeff set to work on carving Mackenzie’s first jack o’ lantern.
The finished product! It matches her monster bib.
With the lights off…
Once it started to get dark, we put on Chloe’s costume and Kenzie’s costume.
We ended up closing up around 8pm and headed upstairs to put Kenzie to sleep. She did so good chilling in between knocks on the door. Can’t wait till we can go door to door next year!
A couple of weekends ago, we headed to Barnes & Noble with the big nieces to listen to a Halloween reading. We arrived just as they were getting started and it was empty enough for the girls to get prime seating and cookies & juice.
The B & N employee read Go Away, Big Green Monster and Nightmare Before Christmas. When he was done with the first reading, approximately 15 kids showed up for the second one. Apparently they were in the wrong area of the store the entire time.
After storytime, the girls made a spider craft. It was a little hectic but lots of supplies for everyone.
After that the girls were able to snag another cookie and a free pumpkin tote before we headed out. It was a cute, fun and FREE way to spend some time out of the house!
