It's been forever since I did an update on our sweet McKenna... At almost 10 months she's up to (in no particular order)....

  • Cruising around everything and letting go briefly to get to another object
  • Stood independently on Sunday (9.5 months)
  • Started crawling at 6 months
  • Eating everything in sight and hasn't turned anything down yet.
  • Nursing about 5 times a day and gulping down bottles when dad is around
  • Still not much into her sippy cup
  • Taking 2 naps a day
  • NOT a great sleeper at all, usually waking 1-2 times a night
  • Finally stopped swaddling around 8 months and sleeps in a sack now
  • Adores Austin and he can crack her up like no one else
  • Seems really outgoing and loves going to her playgroups at Coffee Break, church, bible study...
  • Nicknamed "Smiley" by Great Gram Elsie
  • Got her two bottom teeth at 6 months
  • Has all 4 top teeth poking out (some farther than others)
  • Uses cloth diapers and has quite the little "ba donk a donk"
  • Loves to be in the water
  • Doesn't seem to be very picky (yet), she is happy playing and eating whatever
  • Still hovering around 20 lbs and in her infant seat (so much easier for winter)
  • Puts everything imaginable in her mouth and has a clench technique so it is very difficult to fish out
  • Just starting to get an attitude when you (Austin) takes things from her
  • Although she doesnt sleep all night, she is a champ about going right to sleep when you lay her down
  • Sucks her left thumb only when you lay her in her crib

Just a few things to look back on someday!
