Like to continue on my new get skinny project
Like to take some random college class to make me feel smart!
3 People who might do this-
Not too many friends on the blogging front so...I'll give you two!

Lots going on around here. Duane is still taking the home buyers class every Tuesday and Thursday- not too much longer and we can start searching for a home of our own!
McKenzie has finally learned to roll. Both ways, too. Literally over night she went from no interest to pro. Rolling over and over. She's mellowed off on practicing but I still catch her doing it from time to time.
She's also getting much better sitting. She can sit for a long time if nothing is distracting her- but if she gets too excited(legs start kicking, arms start wailing) down she goes. We've been doing a lot of practicing with her playing with toys and sitting-because this too causes one to go TIMBER! Hard to believe by the end of the month she'll be a half year old. Gosh, she's learned so much! She has two bottom teeth(though two weeks in and they're only 1/2 way out)!
All and all we're pretty happy. McKenzie is napping in her pack and play and not the swing anymore. Big accomplishment people. She's sleeping in her own crib(another big one)!
Bye for now!

Be sure to post picture of your new rental as soon as we're able to get online.
On a side note: Kenzie has finally mastered the back to belly roll and insist on doing this all day long!
Ciao for now!

It started around three-months. Nothing new really started except the pedi recommended putting cereal in her bottles to avoid the reflux symptoms. Then the solid foods started around four-months and the constipation continued.
For about 5 days, McKenzie has had nothing but her formula(and lots of it, as she's never full feeling since she is used to eating 4 jars of solids). Her poop? Normal! So, apparently, it is just her body getting used to solids. Maybe formed poops are her things on food? I guess it is pretty normal- I just totally did not expect it and it took me for a loop!
I think I'll add some water to her diet to avoid this when we start back in a few days. We do not give foods that constipate as it is: Bananas, rice, applesauce. So, hopefully, this is a thing of the past. Thank gosh it isn't her formula.

McKenzie is very fascinated by her Daddy .As soon as she hears his voice she just about breaks her neck to find him and then grins from ear to ear. Even at 5 this morning when she awoke to eat- She was just fascinated by the way he SLEEPS! Uhmm, Baby, what about Mama. Ya know the one who drags her half-awake self out of bed to feed you! I have to admit it does really melt my heart to watch them bond!
On a totally unrelated topic. Kenzie is sick. Her first real sickness(she had some unexplained fever about a month ago- but that was the only real symptom). She has a bad cold and a cough that sounds like a barking seal. Poor baby! Her doctors speculated that she has croup- even though she never even listened to her chest! She remains in great spirits as usual! Just our happy-go-lucky baby girl!
