Friday, I stopped by Memaw's house

Mackenzie's hair was a mess but how do you keep a 3 1/2 month old with perfect hair? I guess a good spit bath never hurt anyone! :)

I didn't realize how big Mackenzie was until I was watching Kaci feed her. It makes me so sad how quickly time flies! Everyone says oh just wait it gets better... I am completely happy with the way things are with her this size. Yes it is a ton of work but I wouldn't trade it for the world!

This amazes me. Mackenzie loves to suck her middle finger and her ring finger.. The only person I have ever seen do this is Mackenzies' Aunt Kaci. It amazes me that she does things that come from our families. I never expected that she would act like her aunts or uncles!!

Dustin and I did a ton of cleaning this weekend! I finally cleaned out my spare bedroom. I have pictures but I am almost too embarrassed to even show those! We shampooed the carpet and found a little bit of change laying around the house! :) I'm thinking this could go toward a wonderful vacation!

Mackenzie has been eating very runny oatmeal through a bottle for several weeks now. The girl wanted to eat all the time!! This has helped get her full in the mornings so she won't eat every hour during the day. Saturday night we decided that we would spoon feed her the oatmeal. She did so great!

I think the girl liked it!

I asked Dustin if he knew how much we should feed her. She threw up everyday last week on Miss Andie so I was afraid of over feeding her.. She let me know when she was finished by screaming with oatmeal in her mouth! Who knew what a mess she could make with food already!! I was not prepared for that at all! :)

When I was pregnant with Mackenzie, her daddy was working the night shift at a juvenile detention center. That made for some long, miserable nights!

I was feeling crafty so I made M this purple tutu.
I actually forgot that I made it until I was cleaning out all of her newborn clothes...

Mackenzie and Sarge looking at their daddy.
It is crazy to me that they are the same length.

Leg rolls never looked so cute!

Friday night, Dustin, Mackenzie and I went to eat with Mom, Duff and Memaw for mom's birthday. It was a very belated birthday dinner, but Memaw wanted us to all go out. We ate at TGI Fridays and then headed home.....

Saturday, Mackenzie and I headed to the lake! Her daddy was playing in a softball tournament all day. It was way to hot to just go sit in the sun so we met up with my parents at the lake! Here is Mackenzie in her swim suit!

Clouds started rolling in after we were there for a couple of hours... We put M on Paul and Susan's boat since it had a cover and headed for the dock. It poured the whole drive back to the dock. Mackenzie was the only dry one on the boat!! We of course stopped by the Dairyette on our way back home.

Sunday, Dustin and I had Nursery duty at church. Between the two of us we had 6 three year olds! And oh my goodness - I felt like I said "No" and "Now we can't act like that" a thousand times! I'm so glad that we get a chance to do this once a month! Maybe next time Mrs. Becky will get to come! We missed you Becky! After church, I headed to the pool at Chamberlyne with Mom and Kaci. Mackenzie hung out with her daddy and Pops all day. She was feeling left out at dinner so we put her Bumbo seat on the end of the table. Haha!

Here is Queen M at the head of the table!

Last week, my sister and I decided to get creative and Mod Podge a water bucket...
The front of it says "Lauren"
We did it for Lauren K.'s 18th Birthday... Since she will be going to UCA in the fall we thought we would support the school spirit!

The rest of her name..

The back of the bucket..
Kaci put a couple towels and a shower caddy in the bucket.
I think it turned out really cute!

Today was just one of those days... I have been in a mood all week. My job has been stressing me out and Mackenzie just isn't sleeping on her normal schedule.. My mom text me today and asked if I would swing by my Memaws' house and visit with her and help her put some curtains up that had fallen down. Honestly, I was in a mood and wasn't all that excited about going by there. Awful, I know.... I love Memaw to death, I just couldn't wait to get home today.

When I stopped by, she could not wait to show me this picture! This is Memaw holding my mom when she was a baby! I was sooooo glad I got to see this! Everyone always asks where Mackenzie gets her hair from and I never have an answer. And here it is.. Mackenzie gets all that beautiful hair from her NeNe! It amazes me how much the back of my moms head looks just like M's! I was so upset with myself for just wanting to go home!

Here is what Memaw wrote on the back of this picture over 40 years ago. It is so ironic, because this is what random strangers stop us everyday and say....

"Look the black hair"

This is the only decent picture I could find of the back of Mackenzie's head.

And, here is Mackenzie with her cousin Kathryn... She left today for the Miss Arkansas Pageant! I can't wait to hear how she does! I know she will do great!

Good Luck Kathryn!

Last week Miss Andie and I took Mackenzie to get her shots..
She did not like it one bit! We had a bottle ready and waiting!

She survived them!
