Time for an Update

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.

Mckinley moves all around in her crib now and this is her most common sleeping position. On her stomach with her cute squeezable bumb in the air. I love it!!! Thanks to Brandon for discovering it. I never used to go in and look at her while she was sleeping. That's when I get my things done. But Brandon can't help it and always wants to go in and just stare at her. That's how he figured it out. Anyway, we have seen her in all sorts of cute positions, like the other night she was sideways in her crib at the end, on her tummy of course, and totally had her toes tucked in down by the side of the mattress. Adorable!

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. :)
Mckinley has taken quite a few steps on her own, so I'm sure she'll be walking for real before too long. She is so much fun and growing so fast!!!

I can't get over how adorable Mckinley is. The dishes picture cracks me up. Hope she gets feeling better!

You post has inspired me to be a better blogger. Not necessarily a great blogger, but a better one. ;)

And I know Meghan from back in Jr. High/High School when she was just a Belliston. ;) We've stayed in touch and still hang out occasionally.
