We Own a Patch of Dirt....

So we have a new address. It is currently a patch of dirt. But we are hoping sometime in July, there will be a completed house there.

Notice the tiny patch of grass in the backyard? We will be one of the few houses in Arizona that have a patch of grass....

I guess what I am trying to say is....we are building a house!!

Photo Shoot

My mom came into town...which means I had a great helper to help me make Makenzie hold still so we could get some pictures....
This is what Makenzie does when I tell her to smile:
And this is what she does when she realizes I want her to hold still so I can take some pictures....
But my mom had tricks:
Tricks only last so long...
But then there is always the bribe of getting a sucker for participating:





And of course some pictures with my mom:


My mom came to visit for a week and we had so much fun! Makenzie just loves her and is always so confused when she leaves...and is always so bored when she leaves. Thanks for coming Mom!

New Bed

Here is Makenzie in her new bed:

She looks so small in it....and the poor thing doesn't have bedding yet. Don't worry, we do give her more than a sheet.

I told her to close her eyes and pretend she is sleeping:

She loves it....mostly because she can escape whenever she wants....

She wakes up at all hours of the night and either plays in her room or comes into our room. One morning at like 5 in the morning I found her on the floor in front of our bed playing... but she usually comes in dragging a pillow and a blanket announcing that she woke up...

Last night she came into our room at 3:00...3:30....4:00....and then I finally convinced her it wasn't morning and she needed to go back to sleep.

I really miss the crib.
