12 week photo
TWELVE weeks!! That seems like some sort of milestone… I think it was with McKenna at least. We are having such fun times. McKayla is growing like a weed and really starting to show her little personality. She smiles so easily and you can see the sparkle in her eyes just before a big ole grin spreads over her face. She is making more and more noises, little squeals and coos. McKenna can’t wait for her to start talking. Kenny had his first Soccer game of the year on Saturday. It was pretty cold so we three girls didn’t get to go but we were cheering for him from the living room.
Highlight of the week:
Karen- Seeing McKenna and McKayla ‘play’ together more and more. They can lay on a little blanket on the floor and McKenna will bring toy after toy to show McKayla. It’s so neat to see them interact. McKenna was so excited when she handed McKayla a little soft ball and she grabbed a hold of it with her little hand. ”Mommy she’s HOLDING it!!!”
Kenny- We had a snow day on Monday and I had a great time sharing a lazy day at home with my girls.
Product we’re loving:
Karen- We really get a lot of use out of our leachco pod cushion. It’s a little pod pillow that McKayla can sit in and it props her up a bit so she can see more of what’s going on around her. We use it a ton. McKenna calls it McKayla’s “seed pod”.
Kenny- Books! This little girl is already a bookworm like her big sister. She pays good attention to lots of different board books.
Karen- My house is a wreck… I need to get everything more organized so its easier to “tidy up” quickly. It is so hard to use my free moments cleaning when McKenna wants some Mom time to play or its nighttime and I’m ready to drop. I try to make the girls the priority, we can live with a mess for now.
I’m also struggling to get an exact schedule down for McKayla, I know she can be awake about two hours before she’s tired and wants to nurse every three hours or so, but each day is different. Thats hard because McKenna was more scheduled and that helped me so much. I’m sure a pattern will start to emerge soon.
Kenny- no struggles right now, we’re doing pretty good. I wish there was no crying ever but that’s part of life.
Something we’ve learned:
Karen- There is nothing sweeter or softer than a precious little baby head nuzzling under your chin. I could do that for HOURS!
Kenny- McKayla is getting pretty good at tummy time. Before we know it she’ll be rolling over.
