Mackenzie Goes Bananas

Filed under: Kenzie — Norris @ 6:41 pm

Today Mackenzie got her first taste of real food. It was bananas! She was crying for food in her chair and with that first bite she completely focused with incredible enthusiasm. So she will get a bit of banana mixed in with the rice cereal. Next week maybe applesauce or sweet potatoes.

Bassinet time, finally!

Filed under: Kenzie — Norris @ 10:34 am

Mackenzie slept the whole night in the bassinet last night. Yeah, there was a feeding in there and some holding on the bed, but she slept out of our bed. Oh, so nice to have room again and not worry about rolling over on her.

Daddy Boot Camp – part 2

Filed under: Kenzie — Norris @ 10:29 pm

Mackenzie was one of the featured babies for Daddy Boot Camp at Meriter Hospital today. It’s a Q&A, info and hands on class just for dads. Dads who previously attended bring their babies to help the expecting dads get a bit of a handle on what to expect. Kenzie had fun and was happy all morning. She also got to visit Babette, one of the nurses from the Special Needs Nursery.
Probably the biggest triumph of the day was Cheri letting Kenzie out of the house without her. Yes, there was a car seat test… and obviously I passed.

Solid Food

Filed under: Kenzie,Photos — Norris @ 12:27 am

Solid Food!

Mackenzie is now eating solid food! Ok, once a day it’s rice cereal mixed with formula to about the consistancy of very runny grits, but it’s solid food. She has been giving us food cues for several weeks and Doc said go ahead, so we’re doing it. She opened her mouth the first time a spoon was presented and is doing pretty darned good with it. She also seems to sleep a bit longer at night.
