6 months

Filed under: Ages,Friends,Photos — Norris @ 10:03 am

Mackenzie is now 6 months old! We didn’t do much celebrating as Mommy was sick and quarrantined to the guest room. That means Daddy just spent three days playing Mr. Mom. At least we got in the 6-month portrait session.

Strolling the Neighborhood

Filed under: Family,Kenzie — Norris @ 9:58 am

It hit 53 degrees on Valentines Day, so the whole family was able to take a stroll around the neighborhood. This was Mackenzie’s first long walk outdoors in the stroller as well as her first walk with Bindi.

Score the Carrots

Filed under: Kenzie — Norris @ 7:55 pm

Dunno what the big deal is, but Mackenzie smiled and enjoyed her carrots tonight. I suppose there are mommies out there who will understand and appreciate this fact. We’re now doing twice daily solid food feedings.

Such a Big Girl

Sippy CupThis evening, Mackenzie made serious moves toward Cheri’s soda can. She leaned in toward it multiple times with her hands out and mouth open. So Cheri decided it was time to try a sippy cup with water. Mackenzie took to it immediately, holding it with both hands for several minutes. She’s such a big girl now!

Cranky Baby

Filed under: Kenzie — Norris @ 7:41 pm

Mackenzie can’t seem to go more than a half an hour in activities that just a few days ago entertained her for an hour or more. Cheri says she felt ridges on her lower gum. It might be the early signs of teething.

Squash came out of her nose tonight and there are sweet potatoes in her ears. How’d that happen?

Baby Dedication

Filed under: Family,Kenzie,Photos — Norris @ 6:38 pm

The prayer and dedication service was excellent. Our biggest praises are that Mackenzie has been perfectly healthy. God definitely worked miracles to keep Cheri and Mackenzie safe with her complications. She is our little miracle.

Cousins Hank, Sharon, Jenny and Peyton were all there. Pastor Chris commented that he was privileged to know the Diane who contributed her middle name. Mackenzie really liked the music and was enthralled with all of the other people and babies around. Of course, there’s a photo gallery.

Sweet Potato Time

Solid Food!The second real food is sweet potatoes… and today for lunch Cheri fed her both bananas and sweet potatoes. Mackenzie was really surprised when she realized both of these new flavors could be had in the same meal.
