Mack Monthly Update

Mack at the KidZone. 
Mack is now 2 Year's old and 2 month's old. She is growing up to be a well behaved and well mannered child. It's hard to think at times that you are the one that has created this person. She still surprises me everyday and is smarter than I ever imagined.

Weight: 36 pounds (Still the same weight)

Height: 3 feet tall. 

New Words: Wake up, Cya Later, more please, I love you (way more clear), Remembering her friends name's from school. Counts 1-10 and almost to 20. 

Eating Habits: Really into her favorites again. Being stubborn about new food items. 

Favorite Movies: A Goofy Movie, Bugs life, and Walle

Activities: Everything is "what's that!" She wants to know what everything is and will repeat what you tell her. She is picking things up so quickly. 

Potty Training Status: She went all by herself the other weekend. She just didn't get her undies down, but she went potty by herself. Progress.  

Sleeping: She is a sleepy kid. She still takes 2-3 hour naps a day and sleeps through the night from 8pm to 5:30am - 6:00am. 

Building with Friends
She built this all by herself.

Mack Monthly Update

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.

Mack Monthy Update

This month marks Mack's 2 1/2 birthday. Hold the phone.. say what!?! I can't believe how time has flown by. Not only is my beautiful little girl growing so quickly it's making me think that number two needs to be in the cards soon... "Shut the Front Door!" It's crazy to me that in 6 short months she will be three and the pressure will really be on to jump in the sack with the hubs and get in baby making mode. Side note: yikes! I'm way more into practicing right now, then doing the real deal deed.

Wait! This is suppose to be a monthly update on Mackenna not jumping in the bed with hubs and baby #2. Back on topic I swear.


Weight: 34 lbs
New Words: farted, raining, "oh man!", clean up, why?, NO!
Eating Habits: This kid is really getting picky, I mean picky.
Favorite Movies: All the Toy Story's and Planet 51
Activities: Sticking Stickers on paper, coloring, painting, playing in kitchen, playdoh
Potty Training Status: She is now telling us when she has to go to the bathroom.

She is getting so big and picking up words daily. She loves to read books and is more into trying to read them to us, then us trying to read to her. She will pull out every book in her room and have a reading picnic on the floor in her room.

Hello 2011, Goodbye 2010

Happy 2011, we made it through the holidaze coaster ride

I'm going to share with your my new years resolutions. I know they are late and it's corny and it's already the 5th day into the new year. I'm going to tell you anyway, so deal with it. I kid, I kid, I love you all, but seriously I'm still telling you anyway.

When sitting and thinking of what I really want to become, who I am, what I want, and what I want my future to hold, I really started to get a little depressed. Sappy moment to myself! This year is going to be the year that I focus on the things I want and make them happen for a change. So here is the list... don't hold your breath... they aren't that great. 

1. Go to yoga once a week
2. Continue to go to the gym at least 3-4 times a week (on my lunch)
     (Ideally, 5 days a week)
3. Commit to giving myself a little time to do the things I want to do. 
     (Knitting, Scrapbooking, Sewing, home projects)
4. Finish Mackenna's baby & Scrapbook.
5. Commit to a diet plan and stick with it
6. Finish craft room/office
7. Pay off 50% of Credit Card Debt
8. Be a better housewife
9. Spend even more time doing things with Mack.
    (Baking, art projects, coloring)
10. Keep car clean for more than 3 days in a row (don't laugh at me)
11. Start saving funds for family vacation
12. Open account for college savings for Mack
13. Stick to cleaning schedule so I have more time with family
14. Remember to send everyone's birthday cards this year

These are just to name a few things that I want to accomplish in the year 2011. I'm so excited for a new year and a new start. I have also printed this list and made it a new item on my mirror in my bathroom so I'm reminded of all of things I want to accomplish this year while I'm getting ready everyday. 

Bye Bye 2010. You were a good and a bad year.

Good -
1. Mack started Preschool
2. I started working 8-5 like normal people, so I can be the one that get's Mack ready in 
    the morning and take her to school. I get to see her smiley face every morning now.
3. We moved into a new house and love the new location.
4. My mom moved from L.A. back to Truckee
5. Family from New Zealand came to visit. 
6. We survived another year together as a young family

Not so Good -
1. My mom fought cancer with radidation and chemo most of 2010.
2. Tore my ACL
** not much on the list for "not so good"

What are your plans for the new year?
