This girl is 3 letters. F.U.N.

Oh my heavens we are having a blast with Mckinley. This girl is so much FUN! Here are some pictures from ever since the last time I blogged.

The highlight of my Wednesday mornings: Coming home after a very early morning at work to Brandon and Mckinley sleeping in bed. I love that she is upside down!!

Mckinley is so fun to bathe! She loves laying down and will just play and play and play in the water. Her little naked body is just so stinking adorable.

Mckinley had a few days this month where she had a fever all day and took 4 naps each day, just like a newborn again, except without the frequent feedings. It was awesome. Here we are just snuggling on the couch. Loved it. And now she has 7 teeth instead of just 2. :)

Okay, so I think I posted a picture on here before of Mckinley sucking on a lemon wedge at Olive Garden. This girl loves lemons! She doesn't pucker or make any weird faces when she sucks on them either. Don't know who in the world she gets that from!!

She bit some chunks out of the peel...

And then sucked the juice out of some wedges we cut for her.

Happy as can be as long as she's eating a lemon.

So this little shirt is the first item of clothing Brandon and I ever purchased for Mckinley. It's size 12 months so we had to wait a little bit to put it on her but it fits her now and it's so cute!

Mckinley has been spending a lot of time bonding with her Aunt Amy who is leaving this Wednesday to go to the MTC and then off to Hong Kong to serve her mission. The big bet we had going was if Mckinley would walk before Amy left and Mckinley can indeed walk!!! Some days she is in more of a walking mood than others, but she definitely knows how to do it. We of course think it's the cutest thing ever.

Ha ha. Love this picture. Mckinely was over at my mom's house playing with some dolls in a little baby basket bassinet thingo. She just looked so cute in there.

One of Mckinley's favorite things is this little empty sample size bottle that used to have face wash in it. She will hold on to that thing for hours and take it with her around the house wherever she goes. Lately she has started just putting it in her mouth so she can play with other toys or crawl around at the same time.

These two are so in love with each other. I am so lucky that I get to spend my whole life with them.

Self family portrait. Not too bad I guess. :)

Yay, one day Mckinley magically learned how to tip up her sippy cup all by herself. Now I can stop worrying about how this child is going to get any fluids down once I stop nursing her. She does NOT do bottles!

Some of Mckinley's favorite things to do lately:

  • 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

Oh my cuteness. She is so cute! I can't believe she is getting so big. It just seems like yesterday I was in your Marriage and Family class and I got to hold her. Awh to bad we all have to get older.

okay, so much sweetness for one post! :) Your little Mckinley seems like such a sweetheart!! Loved all the pictures...the one of her sleeping in bed with Daddy is adorable :) And the one of her in the tub made me smile! (corrie, celeste and I did that when we were little tikes and we'd pretend we were the Little Mermaid with our hair swooshing around in the water. haha)

7 teeth! That's crazy! She is adorable. I love the pics of her with things in her mouth, that is totally my London all day everyday :) Glad to see you enjoying motherhood so much.
