I swear I used to be able to put videos on blogger, so something must be wrong with my computer. Or with me. :) Either way, click HERE if you want to see a video of Mckinley walking.

Well, this weekend has been full of missionary stuff and getting in every last minute with Amy that we could. ... Sunday was her farewell, Tuesday night she got set apart and just about an hour and a half ago, Amy entered the MTC. ... We went to Cafe Rio today for lunch before she went to the MTC. ... No big surprise here. Mckinley is sucking on a lime and loving it. :) ... Me and Brandon saying goodbye to Amy. She will be such an awesome missionary! ... It's so weird that Mckinley will be 2 and a half by the time Amy comes home. Who knows, we might even have another little munchkin by that time too. Wouldn't that be awesome? ... Uh, yeah, I'm not much of a writer, so I'll just let the pictures do the talking, but her farewell and setting apart were both awesome. Hong Kong is so lucky to be able to borrow her for a year and a half. We'll sure miss her. ... I was going to put a video on here of Mckinley walking but blogger won't upload it. Maybe I'll try uploading it to youtube and adding it on here.

- Dance to music or just whenever we ask her to
- Stick her tongue out
- Lay down on her blanket whenever she sees it
- She plays with her hair when she's nursing or falling asleep
- She loves pulling all the clothes out of her drawer or the diapers out of the diaper caddy or anything else like that
- Loves crawling up the stairs
- Loves giving opened mouth kisses

Brandon mentioned that I haven't posted on the blog in a while, and when I started this post (geez blogger took forever to upload the pictures), Mckinley was asleep for her fourth nap of the day so I figured I didn't have an excuse. (She just woke up, but I'll finish it anyway.) No, she doesn't normally take four naps. She takes two. But last night and all today she's had a fever and just isn't feeling well. Which means she's been cuddly which is of course awesome. But I do feel bad for her, I don't know what's wrong.
This picture is from last Monday when we went with Brandon's family to see Gnomeo and Juliet. Mckinley looked so cute just staring at the screen with her daddy. Of course that didn't last long and she was up and crawling/walking all over everything in the theater. But we still had fun.
Here she is in her new cute jammies my mom bought her, helping do the dishes at my mom's house.
Last Friday I finally took her to book babies at the library. She couldn't have cared less for the songs or story, but liked crawling all around the library. I don't know if we'll be going back soon, I probably should, but it's right during her morning nap. I woke her up to go.
Last Thursday was my little sister Heidi's and Brandon's mom's birthdays. They both celebrated on Saturday, at the exact same time. So I went to Heidi's and Brandon went to his mom's with Mckinley. We went and watched Tangled and then had this awesome ice cream cake my mom made.
Ha ha, love Holly. I asked her to move back so I could see Heidi's cake.
Yesterday I went to Salt Lake with my dad to pick up Amy from the airport. My mom stayed home and watched Mckinley for me so I could go with them and do a session in the Salt Lake Temple. Man, I love that temple.
That's about it for the update. Life has been pretty normal. Brandon had a pretty bad sore throat for a while, and I've got a little bit of a sore throat now, and who knows what Mckinley is sick with. I love when she's cuddly but today she has also been pretty sensitive, crying a lot, for minor things like me trying to get her to walk, or major things like when she fell down the stairs today. Oops. My bad. The only times she sneaks away and crawls up the stairs are when I'm in the kitchen making dinner. Maybe I should stop making dinner and hope it magically makes itself. :)
