EEK! How in the world did that happen? My big girl is 7 whole months old! Crazy. Well, according to our scale she's about 19 pounds and 27.5 inches!
I love her more and more each day and it really is a type of love you can't even fathom unless you've experienced it with your own children. She's a really good baby. A tad needy- but that is fine by me.
New skills since last month include: holding her own bottle( I still prefer I hold it as I have read- and my pedi agrees that this reduces ear infections in infants) I give it to her to hold when I am super busy and she's super cranky. Drinking/holding her own sippy cup of water! She does best with the Nuby one her Aunt Jenn in Oregon got her. She's pulling to a stand. Does best using us, but she can manage with furniture with some help(not bad for a 6 month old when she started this). Starting to cruise a bit- quite slow and a bit wobbly. She stands with VERY little support! She's babbling Dada and Baba and gives kisses and hugs when asked. She also survived her 1st time in church daycare this past Sunday! Yay, Kenzie! She does NOT crawl. Nor does she seem too interested in doing so. She's quite content to sit and observe or use Daddy and I to climb/roll over! Very cute!

In other news, McKenzie is sick. Yesterday she refused her bottle before nap(she normally gulps this one down). When she woke she was pretty hot so I took her temperature. 101.5. I took her into her pedi, only to be given a list of what could be's since everything looks good( I thought for sure it was her 1st ear infection). So, we were sent home with watch and wait orders. She refused to drink anything from 12-9! Yikes! She was eating solids- and lots of them. Last night her fever spiked to 103.1 at one point(at 3 Am with blood curdling screaming). She woke this morning with a low fever and still no appetite. Her fever seems to be gone- now we wait for her appetite to return. Poor bub!

McKenzie is all about mimicking these days. My mom taught her how to do this and she does it with her forearm ALL day long.
Excuse me having her say hello to Heather. A friend of mine asked to see her in action.

I just bought a new digital scale and the thing is a piece of crap. Some days it'll have my weight 15 pounds less- and then others 10 pounds heavier. I never, never get the same result twice. This can really mess with ones weight loss mindset!
In fact, Mom was over, it had her weight 20 pounds higher than our old school scale and 18 pounds higher than the one she has at home. Its making its fancy way back to Wal-mart to screw with someone else's mind.
On a side note: We're buying new bumpers for Kenzie's crib, too. The ones that came with her expensive fancy set(it was Zoey's) fits all weird- and I had to rig it to make it safe. Anyhow, I was taking them off last night to change her sheets(major pain the rear) and two of the strings broke off. Nice. My reward for this- She was up multiple times from bumping her head- or stuck limbs!
*edited to add* Which scales are the most accurate? Digital or the old school kind you set yourself each time? I ask because I got another digital and it is about a 5 pound difference from my old school one?!?
