I can't believe I'm writing another Mack Monthly update post already. I swear I just did it a few days ago. My oh my how time flies. She is doing really well and taking into reading all the time now. Even if she is interpreting the photos and making up her own stories to herself, the fact that she is engaging in books by herself is awesome. She can now take her own shoes off. Usually when we enter the door at home that is the first thing that she wails at you for. Mommy, "shoes off!" She is now just doing it herself which is a big help. Because I'm a working mom and so is dad, we have limited time in the evenings to go chores, dinner, baths, play time and quiet time. We have to bum rush in the door and do everything as quickly as we can. It has been a little helpful that Mack now goes to bed around 9. So 8-9 is typical play time and Bath squeezed in. She helped me even load the dish washer last night. It was nice, because I got to hang out with her, engage with her and get a chore done. Win, Win! She loves putting the silver ware in their spots and is almost a little OCD about how they go in. On January 29th I got her first hair cut. Check out Mack's First Hair Cut post. She loved it and was a real good sport about it. I'm glad that she enjoyed it and I think will look forward to going again.
Weight: 36 pounds
Height: I'm not really sure. I swear 3 ft tall.
New Words: I'm sorry, ouch, boo boo, hurt me, excuse me, please
Eating Habits: She is getting better and better about eating different things. We try showing her how good it tastes. Some nights she is just not into trying anything and other nights she digs right in.
Favorite Movies: Aladdin, and How to Train your Dragon. (at first she wasn't sure what to think of this movie and now she loves it.)
Activities: She loves to giddy up on her horse on a stick, loves to stick stickers everywhere, playdoh, and just sitting in her room reading books to herself.
Potty Training Status: It's still hit and miss, but we are making progress.
Sleeping: We have pushed her bedtime to 9, because 8 was too early for her, she was waking up at 4am. She has been waking randomly and getting up and playing. I think we fixed that by putting her back in her bed right away.
