mckenzie is ten months old today! all of a sudden she is looking all grown up. Here are the updates...
+she has OPINIONS. "I want to play with your necklace and DON'T YOU DARE TAKE IT AWAY FROM ME." She will let you know what she wants, likes, doesn't like, etc etc and all of the above.
+With this new found angst, I am learning to choose my battles: you want to put mama's dirty keys in your mouth? sure fine, because it will make you happy for 10 minutes. you want to drink mama's scolding hot coffee? well, I'll fight that battle.
+She is eating a tiny bit, which is entirely exclusive to the following things: wheat thins, ice cream, panera baguettes, apples (but only a whole one), oatmeal (but only from mama's bowl), chips, watermelon, and baby puffs. Oh, and breast milk hashtag ALWAYSANDFOREVER. The universe is laughing at the me of 10 months ago who swore I would only feed my child whole organic foods.
+daddy is her new favorite. she loves loves loves him. He can make her laugh the hardest just by smiling and making noises in her direction. She has started to cry a little bit when he leaves for work in the mornings. She always goes right down for her naps when he puts her in bed (thanks, kid). Oftentimes, when david gets back from work, he will scoop her up and take her back into the bedroom to hang out with him while he changes out of his work clothes. I can't say exactly what goes on back there, but all I know is there are tons of giggles and bursts of laughter and screams and shrieks, and I just love their relationship so so much.
+she has started dancing to music. I'll put a song on and she will look up from whatever she is doing, listen for a moment, and then start bouncing her whole body. I DIE.
+sometimes she pants like a dog. we have no idea where she got that from, but we all think it is hilarious.
+and kissy faces. she has learned the most delicious kissy face and it makes me want to have twelve thousand more children (not pregnant).
obviously we think our kid is the bees knees. we love celebrating all of her little milestones and teaching her to love life.
