3.5 Months


Okay here is a picture of my sweet baby girl McKenzie at 3.5 months. Everyday she does something that makes my heart melt! David and I can stare at her for hours! The past week McKenzie has been sleeping in her bed and Mommy is actually getting more sleep. I had now clue just how tired I was until I got 5 hours of sleep and I new that I was starting to get rejuvenated! It is so hard to work all day, come home and spend time with your child and then be awake all night because your child doesn't sleep. The last few weeks I having been walking around like a zombie. I have fought off a col, got a fever blister and drank tons of coffee. I am just now starting to feel like a human again. Funny how that happens! I will keep you posted on our progress, please keep us in your prayers! Have a great week!!!

Weight Loss Challenge Month 2

Okay so we are in Month 2 of the Mulligan/Burns Weight Loss Challenge and we are doing great. Burns has started a boot camp class for 2 months and I have been running during the week and walking with my Mom and McKenzie on the Weekends! I know you cant tell alot from the pictures but hopefully you will be able to! I will keep you posted every month.

Our 3 Day Weekend!




Our three day weekend was fabulous. McKenzie, Granny and I went on several walks and we slept in! Then on Sunday, Daddy and McKenzie watched football and McKenzie and I took alittle nap. On Monday it was my Birthday and McKenzie, Daddy and I spent the whole day together in Conroe! I cannot believe I am 31, my how time flies! On Sunday night we had a disturbing call that one of the stores had been broken into and David had to go in the middle of the night and meet the cops. One of his employees heard the news and was so nice and came to help him clean up the broken class. The thieves only stole 2 little bottles that cost less than 10 dollars and we had to replace a $1000 dollar window. HPD caught the guys that night and luckily we have great security cameras! So David was alittle tired on our Birthday outing but little McKenzie and I had a blast! McKenzie was such an Angel (but whats new right)! For dinner on Monday evening we went to Granny and Pappy's and had WW cupcakes (which were fabulous). I wish every weekend was a three day weekend!!!! Oh I forgot, on Sunday we also went to work with David for an hour and we have some pictures of McKenzie and her first trip to Daddy's work!!

McKenzie Rolled Over Today!


Well my Mom called me this morning to tell me that she put McKenzie on her Tummy Time to play (which she hates being on her tummy), and she looked over and McKenzie was on her back. So she thought she might be crazy and she flipped her over again and watched McKenzie roll onto her back.. Man that kid is her fathers child (headstrong)! Mom said she only did it twice and then she got bored with her new trick. Everyday it seems little McKenzie does something new, that's the hardest part about being back at work. I seem to miss all the good stuff. I know that millions of women do it but when it comes to your child you just hate to miss a thing. I cannot wait to get off work and go home to my little bundle of joy. Monday 1/19 is my Birthday and we get the day off of work for MLK day. Talk about the best birthday gift ever!!!!!!! I get to spend the whole day with my princess!!!!!! I'm trying to learn how to post videos, if I do I will have new footage soon!!!!! Ta Ta for now!

Davids Birthday


So yesterday Jan. 12 was Davids Birthday! We both went to work and came home and had a nice dinner and David had a wonderful cake! I just sat back and watched him eat his cake and ice cream though! :-( David got so many wonderful Birthday wishes! Then McKenzie and David watched her new Baby Einstein video (thanks Cousin Dee for sharing)! We think McKenzie is starting to teeth which is really early but her Dr. told us that sometimes they start teething but don't actually cut teeth for 2 more months. Man does that kid slobber! So I decided to give her a teething toy and she loved it! Wow, everyday she does something new that just shocks David and I!

As for sleep I haven't been getting much, me going back to work messed up McKenzie's schedule. So I think because of exhaustion I came down with a cold but I am getting better. Everyday gets easier but I still miss her like crazy! Being a Mommy is the best thing in the world!

Today is weigh in at WW, wish me luck!

McKenzie laughing at Daddy!


Cousin Dee


Last night Cousin Dee came for a visit! Dee and McKenzie laughed at each other and made all kinds of noises. Everything was going well until Dee reached over and grabbed McKenzie's face and McKenzie screamed. No harm done, McKenzie just startled. Anyway we had a good time!

After Dee left McKenzie had a great bath and had some Daddy time. She laughed at Daddy for along time and then Daddy put her rite to sleep. What a happy girl we have. I have now completed one week of work and everyday has gotten easier. I remind my little princess that Mommy has to work to pay for her hair bows and I think that makes her smile, because she loves her bows. All in all her sleeping has been alittle off but I am learning to function of little sleep. I hear it gets better, I will keep you posted!

Mulligan Mornings


So this morning I woke up to this and I had to go get the camera! I'm not really sure who is swaddled the best, McKenzie or Daddy (which is the lump under the sheet). Yes that is correct he ended up sleeping with the sheet wrapped around his head. So needless to say I left them like this and had 45 minutes to get ready for work. When Granny came over she got to see this first hand and had a good laugh! Like father like daughter!

Burr it's cold!!!!!!!!


So I'm back at work today (Boo). I cried all the way to work but I made myself get it together and enter the building. I only checked on McKenzie once this morning and once in the afternoon. Oh man, this is tough. I think every day will get better though. At lunch I went to the gym and ran for 45 minutes to take my mind of things! I hope to keep exercising on my lunch breaks! It's almost 5pm and I cannot wait to get home and see my little sweetie pie! Tomorrow is Weight Watchers (WW) weigh in, so wish me luck!!!!!

Sunday Sadness!


Okay so today was my last day home with my sweet baby girl. I am trying to be strong but I know David must think I am crazy. As hard as it is to be at home with a high maintenance baby I cant stand the thought of leaving her. I know each day will get easier and I am just being a wimp, but man it is hard. SO today McKenzie and I had a day off fun. First we washed clothes because McKenzie is so long, we had to pack up the newborn and 0-3 months and move up to the next size. So everything is clean and put away and then we took alittle nap on the couch. Now little Mackers is taking a nap on Daddy so I can do some blogging! I will keep you posted on tomorrow! Keep me in your prayers! Also Tuesday is weigh in at Weight Watchers, wish me luck! Till tommorrow!

How Cute!


Okay so I'm alittle late but Happy New Year! McKenzie woke up at 10 till midnight and rang in the New Year with mom and pops! What a precious girl she is! Last night she did the cutest thing ever (I'm sure you will hear that again)! Well let me start off by saying that the only way McKenzie will sleep is if she is touching me, so yes she sleeps with David and I at night. So at 3:30 am I feel something and wake up and it is my sweet girl staring at me with her hand on my face. I usually swaddle her at night but she had popped an arm out and rested it on my cheek. I thought I was going to cry! Man did that make it worth it to be awake at 3:30 am. Anyway, it is 1 day away from me going back to work and it makes me weepy every time I think about it. I will keep you posted on Monday! Also Granny, McKenzie and I joined Weight Watchers so I will keep you posted on that. McKenzie was so good at the first meeting! Keep us in your prayers and pray that Monday is not so bad on me and little McKenzie! Man I feel like a wimp!!! Also the picture above is McKenzie, David and I as Baby Jesus, Joseph and Mary at The Journey to Bethlehem this year. It was such an honor to participate in this event and McKenzie (Baby Jesus) was the main attraction! I will post more pictures soon.
