Makayla gets a tooth

Makayla got her first tooth May 26th 2009. She gave no signs of getting a tooth. One day she didn't have any teeth and the next she had one tooth. She still only has one tooth.

I tried to get a picture of her tooth, but she kept hiding it from me. She thought it was a funny game.

Makayla walks

Yes this is really old, but this is the only journal I do, so read it if you want. Don't if you don't.

Right before we moved to Provo Makayla's first step (only one step) was on May 31st. Later she took one step for her Daddy on June 8th. On the 18th of June Makayla took her first steps, 2 to be exact.

July 5th 2009
Makayla started walking and has not stopped.
This is a picture of her walking because I couldn't get the video to work on the blog.

Makayla wants to be like her big sister

Makayla walks very well holding on to your hands, and she is crawling all over things.

Makayla pulled her self up to a standing position, all on her own for the first time. March 29 Sunday Morning.

The next day Hazen lowered her crib mattress, and its a good thing he did I found her standing in her bad that afternoon, after her nap.

Some time the end of February or the first of March I started her on meats and she loves it, and she has also developed a distaste for broccoli.

At Makayla 9 month Doctor visit Makayla was 17 lb. (What Tessa weighed at a year) and 251/2 inch. long She now walks along furniture, stands on her own for a second or four, and she loves "Falling". She goes from standing to sitting and then lays on her belly really fast, laughing the whole time. I think Makayla has seen Tessa having fun falling off things on to soft pillows, I think that's what Makayla is trying to recreate.

Tessa is still 36 lb and 34 to 36 inch. tall. We haven't weighed or measured her for a while because she still doesn't eat, there for hasn't grown any. She loves to learn. She is really good with her numbers 1 to 20, and she is learning that the alphabet song is not just a song. She has about a thread of the letters down. She knows a lot more of the shapes and colors then she used to. She has a hard time understanding that last night is different then yesterday, or last Thursday. She will figure it out it soon enough.

Sorry about not post this sooner, again I was trying to fined my for ever lost pictures. In case you where wandering, the little spaces between every thing are really cute pictures that I will never see again, but I will always remember them.

More Makayla

Tessa still loves Makayla and Makayla Love Tessa! :)

I haven't done a very good job on keeping you updated on Makayla. She is getting ready to crawl. She does the army crawl and rolls herself every where. I do like to see her developing, but I had hope to hold off the crawling a little longer. No dice. Tessa started crawling at 51/2 months so I guess I should consider myself lucky.

Makayla loves her food she started eating rice cereal at 4 months by her request and eats tons of it now. I mix it with pureed fruits and veggies, I think the sweet potato's are her favs.

She still loves nursing, she laughs right before I nurse her. I Love it!! This is kind of a sad thought because I am going to be weening her in a month or two. Oh well all good things must come to an end, so that better things can came.

She laughs kinda like this

She also says Da da, Ma ma, and tons of other cute sounds, but her favorite thing to do is growl. We call her our little Bear (She has a Bear suit that she wears when we go out side. Thank you Cassandra we love it.)

What else, Oh she got her 6 month shots. She didn't like that, it was my fist time there while a child of mine got their shots. I had made Hazen do it up until now but he couldn't miss school so I was stuck doing it. I think I hated it as much as she did. I am not a huge needle fan when it comes to me or my girls. Makayla was a litte under the weather for a little while after, and as soon as she got feeling better we all got sick. Makayla had welts on her legs and bruises for a week and a half :( that was sad for me. Other news from the doctor's visit, she is in the 50% for height and weight.

That may not sound like a lot but following Tessa she is practically a giant. I am amazed that two smaller people like Hazen and I could end up with a child that is holding strong at 50% for either height or weight. So there is hope that she will be as tall as Hazen, but if not she should still get taller than me. So things are moving a long great with Makayla.
