Children's Museum

We finally made it to the Children's Museum!! I can't believe it's taken us this long to get there.

We tagged along with some friends and had the best time! Thanks for the invite!!

Kylie loved every single area. I think we could have literally spent all day there.

Water Area.

Clay Creations.

 Light Area

We will definitely be going again!!

McKenna. 9 months.

Our girls are growing up.

McKenna turned 9 months old on the 21st. Crazy.

Stats: Height: 27 inches. Weight 16 lbs. 13 oz. Head: 18 inches

This month has flown by, she is learning and growing so much.

McKenna eats almost everything that we are eating these days. And she LOVES it (and so do I, it makes my life so much easier.) Her new favorites are smoothies, cheese, chicken and noodles.

mmmm... popsicle.
She continues to sleep like a dream. 2 or 3 long naps and 12 hours at night. You keep it up baby girl.

She is still super quick army crawling around, but she is starting to get up on her hands and knees and do some real crawling. Although, she would prefer to walk and stand. She pulls herself up on everything, and walks along couches and chairs. Her new favorite game is to pull herself up, and then drop down to her bum, then pull herself up again. She did it for like 20 minutes today. Work those arm muscles baby!

She is constantly making sound. Most of the time she is adorable and we love hearing her figure out her voice, but not all of it is cute. She is rather good at yelling and grunting to get attention. We have taught her to ask for "more" using sign language, so at least that cuts out a little yelling.

McKenna consistently takes a bottle now, and actually likes it. Hallelujah! And she likes to do it herself. So cute.

She still only has her two little teeth. And she loves to bite everything with those little daggers.

We love you McKenna and are so glad that you are healthy, strong and happy.

Kylie. Age 3.

How is our Kylie already 3 years old?!

Kylie was spoiled on her birthday. When she woke up her floor was covered with balloons.

Daddy made her a chocolate smoothie and sprinkle pancakes for breakfast.

While Daddy was at work we played and did whatever Kylie wanted (painted nails, chalk, stickers, going on a walk.) And waited for Grandma Heath to arrive.

Daddy came home early and we went to the park to play, and mostly to swing. :)

Not so sure about this swinging business...

Then we went back home, had dinner, opened presents, ate ice cream cake and played with her new toys. I would say it was a pretty perfect birthday, and I think Kylie would agree.

McKenna loved having free reign on the toys while sister was in her tent
She is so excited to be three. She randomly looks at us with a huge grin on her face and says "I'm big." or "I'm three!" But now she is set on becoming 4 and 5! She's growing up too fast.

She is the BEST big sister and is so helpful feeding and changing McKenna (she takes it on herself to tell McKenna not to yell for food and that she needs to ask for "more please.") She is also very good at getting her to laugh and be happy.

Kylie loves to do hair, with LOTS of bows like Rapunzel... McKenna doesn't seem to be a fan.

Stats from her appointment. Weight: 27 lbs. 4 oz. Height: 37 in.
