7 Weeks Already!

McKenna is already 7 weeks! I can't believe how time is flying! On Tuesday we had her two month check up! I clearly have not toughened up yet, because she got 5 shots and we both ended up crying! I told Dave that there was no way that I could handle it alone, so he was there trying to make both McKenna and I feel better.
I didn't think about it while we were at the doctor's office, but taking off the band-aids are almost as bad as the shots! I have managed to get them off of her, but if anyone has any advice on getting band-aids off without it hurting I would love it!
McKenna starting smiling about a week and a half ago, and now she is doing it all of the time! I can't tell you how much I love it when she sees me and just lights up with a huge smile! I haven't been able to take a picture of it yet, but I did manage to record it! I love being a Mom!
You can see her band-aids, she had Belle on one thigh and Cinderella on the other!

A Rodeo, a Sick Dog, and a Bucket of Water!

What a weekend! I have to say that I am glad that it is almost over! It started out good enough, on Thursday night Dave and I went to the Strawberry Days Rodeo with my Dad, Ryan and Callie and their adorable kids! It was a good rodeo, it was just hard for me because it was the first time I have left McKenna for an extended period of time, so I was a little stressed out all evening. The good news is McKenna was fabulous for Stephanie and Derek (thank you guys so much for watching her)!

Friday was a pretty good day until Dave and Dallin went on a 4-wheeler ride and decided to have Gauge run along behind. This is something that Dave does all of the time and Gauge loves it and gets exercise. They were going along and all of the sudden Gauge gave up and laid down and wouldn't get back up! He got heat exhaustion! We ended up taking him to two vets and he spent the night at one of them! The poor puppy is so sick! He is doing better today, he is keeping down food and water, which is huge progress.

On Saturday I was carrying a bunch of things out to the car, among them were my purse and a bucket of water so we could clean Gauge's throw-up out of the back. When I was switching the bucket from my left hand to my right I ended up dumping the whole thing in my purse! Dave managed to get my ipod out before it was damaged, but my phone wasn't so lucky. Our phones are about a month old! It kind of works, so if you call me and my phone drops the call, or it just doesn't work at all now you will know why!

Happy Father's Day!

Happy Father's Day to all of you Dad's out there. Dave and I are so blessed because we both have amazing Dad's and Grandpa's!
I have to say that McKenna is one of the luckiest girls I know because her Dad loves her so much! I love to see them together. Dave uses the funniest voices, and he has gotten her so close to laughing! This whole parenting thing has been quite the adventure, but Dave has been so wonderful and supportive, so I guess both McKenna and I are the two luckiest girls! I love you honey!

Hawaii? Yes, Please!

We are going to Hawaii! Some of our friends invited us to go with them in December! We are going to Oahu, an island I haven't been to since I was about ten, and Dave has never been to. I am so excited! Dave and I haven't been on a real vacation (that wasn't a family trip) since our honeymoon! Now I have extra motivation and a definite time limit to get the baby weight off!

5 Weeks Already!

My little McKenna is 5 weeks already! I can't believe it! She is getting so much bigger and it makes me sad! I am excited for her to get bigger and be more interactive, but I want her to stay my tiny cuddly baby! I am afraid we have hit a little awkward stage where her hair is falling out and she has a little baby acne, but she is still absolutely adorable!

Sleeping Baby!

McKenna's receding hairline from the side!

So forever ago I promised that I was going to post some pregnant pictures of me, and now that I no longer look like this I think I can bring myself to do it! I guess this is one of the better late than never circumstances!

Here I am in McKenna's room!

Here we are in the hospital waiting for McKenna to come!
