-Memorial Day-

Monday, May 31, 2010

Friday night, we took Mackenzie to Starbucks for the first time with Jared and Cassen

Last night, we crashed Barb and Glen's "New Comer Cookout"...They had gotten a lot of food and ended up inviting our whole Life Group. We got Mackenzie in the pool and she loved it! I forgot to get some pictures :( Barb and Glen grilled some great food, and we got to know some of the newer members of our class a little better! One of the newer couples were headed out until Stina saw this in their vehicle.....

Not one but TWO Water Moccasins!!

Stina came running back in the house to get a hoe to kill the snakes... Of course Dustin darted out there to be in the action.. As Cassen would say - its a Washburn thing :) - Dustin pulled one of the snakes out of the vehicle with a hanger and Jason pulled the other snake out with a rake. They decided the snakes were probably in their lawn chair bags! We will never forget this!

Mackenzie got a bath after we got home.. I just love these hooded towels! Her flower ended up looking more like some Indian head gear.. We had fun making up cute Indian names for her!

This morning Dustin got a picture of Mackenzie and I sleeping with our hands on our heads... No she does not sleep in the bed with us. Her cradle in right beside my side of the bed.... After she got up this morning we fed her and she went back to sleep so we just let her snooze with us for a little bit!

She wakes up so happy!

We finally got out of our PJ's about 4:00 today! I love days like this! We took Dustin to his softball practice at Ben Geren and we went to Old Navy and Target. We got Mackenzie a couple of swim suits to go to the lake in.

I am always talking on here about Mackenzie's first this and first that, and tonight I was undressing her out of the most precious outfit and I realized that was probably the LAST time she would get to wear that! I never got a picture of her in it :(

Mackenzie and her daddy on Memorial day!
Happy Memorial Day Daddy!!

Here is sweet Dustin when he was in the Army!
He was just 19 in this picture! Such a baby face! :)

Thank you for everything you have done for us! We appreciate all of your hard work!
You will always be our hero! Love you!

Dustin's cousin Jeff left last night to head overseas - He will never forget this Memorial Day!

-First Week Back to Work-

Sunday, May 30, 2010

This week was my first week back from Maternity Leave..
It was way harder than I ever expected it to be.

The Saturday before I went back to work was the first time we left Mackenzie with a sitter while Dustin and I got out of the house... She stayed with Kaci while we went bowling with our Life Group. It was a lot of fun to get out and have some "Us" time!

Big yawn while staying with Aunt Kaci

Life is tough! :)

She loves her swing at her NeNe's house!

Kaci took Mackenzie to 6th grade graduation this week...
She was wore out!

Her precious Polo dress

I was so thankful that I got to see this sweet girl on my lunch breaks!
It made the day go by faster!
I think she was glad to see me - She had a death grip on my bottom lip

It was very nice to get my on my schedule, but it was very hard leaving her... On Monday morning, I laid her in her cradle in Kaci's room and started sobbing. I cried the whole way to work, and as I walked in one of the sweet nurses asked if it was my first day back... I bet she wished she wouldn't have said a word because I broke down on her!

It is crazy to think that just six weeks before that it was hard for me to even leave work.. I worked the day before M was born and when I got to my car I just broke down. I didn't know how I was going to go six weeks without being at work... And then there I was sobbing because I was back at work.... A baby changes EVERYTHING!

Kaci's Graduation

My baby sister graduated from high school on May 20, 2010

Graduation had to be moved in to the gym because of the weather..

My favorite part of graduation!!

We had to take her dress off and fan her to keep her from having a meltdown!

This is how I feel today....
It is my first day back to work!

Happy One Month!!

Saturday, May 22, 2010

Mackenzie's One Month Checkup had to be postponed because our pediatrician had a family emergency... She turned a month old on May 9th, but we didn't go in to the Dr until the 19th.

I cannot believe an entire month has already gone by!

You weigh 9 pounds 9 ounces and are 22 1/4 inches long!

-LOVE watching yourself play in the mirror!
-want to eat about every 2 hours
-sleep about 6-7 hours straight at night and I love it!
