It’s kind of hard to believe it’s been two full weeks since my last blog post, but I’m back to share an update on Mackenzie. She is officially 10 months old today and I still can’t figure out where the time has gone. It feels like I found out I was pregnant with her two weeks ago, that I had her one week ago, that she was an awful sleeper three days ago, and that she started crawling two seconds ago. At this rate, she’ll be walking tomorrow, going to high school next week, and getting married in a month.
Here she is today in her cute little bathing suit (after a failed attempt at the beach…it was not nearly as warm as I thought it would be) ::
Because of how quickly everything is going, I’ve made an extra effort lately to enjoy every second with my little best friends (hence the reason my blog posting has slowed a bit). It’s not from a lack of things to write about…I’m just soaking it all up.
Sometimes I find myself sitting on the couch, watching the girls in awe because they’re so incredibly in love with each other. They crack each other up and challenge each other in ways I always hoped for but never really thought possible. We certainly have intense moments of sisterly quarrels (and I’m sure it’s only just beginning), but those quarrels result in lessons of patience (for everyone…Mommy included), strength, and friendship.
I feel so lucky to have the job I do and I feel so incredibly blessed to have the family I do.
Enough of all this sappy stuff though (I suppose that’s what happens when I take two weeks off of blogging)…
At 10 months, Mackenzie is ::
- a crack-up…she’s a devious little lady and I love it
- a crawler/cruiser…and she’s so incredibly close to taking her first steps
- adorable…I know I’m biased, but she has the best smile I’ve ever seen – her spirit is incredible
- a sharky…yep, she now has 9 teeth (one being a molar)
- officially formula fed…I nurse her 1-2 times a day, but she’s primarily drinking out of a bottle now
Now, let’s take a little walk down memory lane before we get to the good stuff – new 10 month pictures of Mackenzie!
