Makaeda's First Trip to the Pool

Makaeda's first trip to the pool (Water Mine Park in Reston, VA)...we had a fun filled day in the pool and out and about with Mrs. Tamara and Kennedi who is only 4 days older than Makaeda.

So we tried Sweet Potatoes this past Saturday but she was NOT having it..which means we're just going to move on and try them again in a few weeks...

On to carrots, at first she didn't really know how to feel about them...but she spit most of them out..

On the second day, I mixed them with rice cereal and she LOVED them..wanted to help me..

After a few spoonfulls, she decided I just wasn't going fast enough and she wanted to do it by herself...

Needless to say..carrots were a success so it's on to peas...stay tuned!

Memories from 3 months - 4 months

Here are a few memories from Makaeda's 3rd month and the very beginning of her 4th. :)

We took our first family trip to NC on Memorial Day weekend. Makaeda was able to meet her Nana and Grandpa (Reggie's parents) for the first time, going to cousin Jasmine's HS graduation, getting cozy with Godmommy Alicia, meeting all her Chapel Hill fam, and visiting Grammie and Pawpaw (Jessica's parents) at Jordan Lake. Makaeda did excellent during the ride, only throwing a fit an hour outside of Alexandria on the way back home...she, like her mother, realized that it was only a matter of time before we had to wake up and get ready for the "real world" again.

The next 2 slideshows are from Makaeda's 3rd month. We just cannot believe how much she's grown in such a short's so amazing. And it's SO TRUE what they say about enjoying every second because they just seem to fly by..

And so the fun really begins..Makaeda had her 4-month pediatrician appointment on June 25th, 2009 and she was a whopping 15 lbs, 4oz and 24.5 inches long..what a healthy baby we have! She also had to get 4 shots which she was not loving Mommy and Daddy about but alas..

She's started "talking" up a storm and now instead of fussing before she heads off to snooze, she starts talking until she eventually just passes out (so much like her Mommy). She's really starting to look like Reggie (even though Mommy hates to admit it)...and she's starting her first solids of rice cereal. WOOHOO.

Crazy, right? Jessica is going to try to be better about updating this blog..we have so many pictures that we need a new computer just to house them all. :)

Hope all is well with and happiness!
