McKenna is 6 months?!?!?!

My sweet little McKenna Val is 6 months old already! Where has the time gone??? She is such a sweet baby, and we LOVE having her around. She spends as much time on her belly as possible, and loves being up so she can see what's going on. She has started rolling everywhere, from one end of the room to the other. She gets up on her head and knee's, (yes I meant head) and moves back and forth for a minute and then usually ends up going backwards. She loves her binkie when she gets tired, and she will suck her thumb through the binkie(picuture below illustrates what I mean). I was so glad that if she was going to "suck" her thumb that it was through the hole in the binkie, till the last week when she figured out she can just put her thumb in her mouth as you can see from some of these pictures. So far she just chew's on it.
She LOVES eating "real" food now, and when you feed her her cereal or baby food, she makes this mmmmmmm sound after every bite. It's so cute. She isn't to sure about the gerber puffs yet, but I'm sure she will decide they're ok! She says mmmmm mmmm mmm mommma, and we've even heard dadada. She will go to anyone who wants to give her any kind of attention, and smiles ALL the time. She is still pretty stingy with her laughs, but we hear them more and more. Maybe we are learning how to be more funny!!! She love's dogs, and thinks they are really funny.
She has two teeth and they are soooo cute, she love's to sit and chomp with them. And she is so spoiled by everyone around her. She has pretty much wrapped us all around her little finger!
We love you so much McKenna, and we're glad that you choosed us!!

McKenna's 4 month stats

McKenna had her 4 month check up today, and she did so good! She was smiling at the doctor through the whole exam, and only cried for a minute after her THREE shots. Nothing a little Tylenol wont take care of. The doctor says she seems to be functioning at a 6 month level, we got a smartie pants on our hands. Let's just hope she's not walking at 9 months! Ha ha!
weight: 13lbs 4oz (42%)
Height: 25.5in (90%)
Head: 16.2in (55%)
I had to post this picture, it's her favorite position as of late! EVERYTHING goes right to the mouth whether it's attatched or not!

We left McKenna at my mom's house while we went to a movie, and this is what she had on when we picked her up! Thanks mom, and You Are Right!!!

More what?!?! McKenna of course!

I should probably rename this blog all things McKenna, cause that is our life these days. And you wont hear us complaining about that! We just think she's the cutest thing ever, and wanted to share a few more pics!

McKenna at 2 months already!

I can't believe McKenna is two months old! That went by a lot faster than the 8 eternal days I went over due with her! We took her in for her two week check up the other day and she did so good. Four immunizations, one oral, two in one thigh one in the other! It was so sad for Jeremy and I, but she was a champ! All it took was a little Tylenol and she was back to her smiley self! The doctor says she's perfect, which of course we allready knew!
These are her two month stats:
Weight: 9.94lbs (24%)
Height: 23.5 inches (86%)
Head measurement: 15.4 (54%)

McKenna's blessing day!
