Not paying attention

Well, I figure I will write a quick blurb since I am not paying attention to class.  Apparently, Ms. Makenzie is back on strike.  Now, not only does she not want to each veggies, she doesn't want to eat chicken.  Her reaction to the chicken was eww,  no.  I am not going to give her fruit, bread and cheese for dinner.  The first thing out of her mouth in the morning is eat eat, snack-cheese.  I honestly think that if she could eat cheese everyday all day she would.  I guess I may need to just breakdown and give her cooked carrots, which I completely can't stand.  I was in shock when she even turned her nose up at pasta, she usually will eat it.  Well, class is almost over I guess I can pay attention for the last ten minutes.

Terrible two tantrums

Well, our house is full of temper tantrums and the life of the terrible two's has begun.  My patients are definitely being tested due to Makenzie having teething issues and terrible two outbursts.  It's hard to pick my battles when it seems that everyday is a battle, so if any of you out there have any ideas on dealing with the terrible two's I am all ears.  We had another successful night last night with vegetables thank goodness for green beans.  =)  Tonight we didn't try a vegetable I figured we wouldn't try to push our luck.  Tomorrow should be lots of fun with broccoli.

Some pictures of Makenzie

So, I thought I would put some pictures up of Ms. Makenzie from this past weekend. It's hard to believe how much she has grown. I am truly amazed at how smart she is, she shows me something new everyday. Finally, last night she decided that vegetable were not so bad after all. Peas seem to have made the cut once again. Tonight we are going to try green beans and see how that goes.

Mommy and Me

So, Makenzie and I went to our first Mommy and me class tonight.  It was an interesting experience to see how she did in a class type atmosphere.  Watching her was fabulously entertaining, and made me realize how much she has grown.  We sang songs, played with shapes, learned about automobiles.  I did this class as a free try and I have totally feel in love with the idea and being able to spend that time on just Makenzie.  She got so excited when she did what Ms. Virginia the teacher said that she just about knocked me over running back to me.  I love my little monkey.

10 Years

So, I received a phone call from Jason this morning reminding me that he has been in the Navy for 10 years today.  Wow, hard to believe that it's been that long and thank goodness that we are half done. We can't wait until he can be home with his girls, love him!

 I am hoping to get some pictures up later today.

Well, Hanna made our Saturday not quite what we had in mind, but we made the best of it.  Initially I had planned on putting together Makenzie's new play house, but with the rain and winds that didn't exactly happen.  So, we had a nice day in playing with her baby dolls, running up and down the hallway and doing puzzles.  So, to all of our family and friends there is nothing to worry about we are fine and so is the house.  I will put some new pictures up in the next few days of Makenzie's new haircut, she got bangs the other day which proved to be an interesting experience.
