The New Adventure

I am horrible...

My goodness, you should see the hate mail I'm getting claiming that I am neglecting this blog by not updating it. Harassment is coming via hurtful comments shouted across the room, emails coming from all directions, posts on Facebook, and even text messages that cost me $0.25 a piece since I don't have a texting plan (hint hint haters...)

Ok, so, what do we do about this? I guess we post an update. Yay...whatever...

This is going to be way picture heavy without much of my witty comments so I hope you all enjoy.

Alright, here we go back in time. Pictures from McKenzie's brain surgery back at the end of April.

This is the night before we left for Birmingham. This is Addie and McKenzie hanging out:


Once we got to Birmingham, Dr. Oakes marked and autographed the incision site for the surgery. Part of that mark is still there even today...


Here we are in the day surgery room. It's about 6:30am and McKenzie is wearing her awesome yellow surgical gown. She still looks pretty happy here...


Here we are post surgery and recovery room. We got to a real room on the floor by 10am or so. Here is mommy and McKenzie resting a bit. We're not so happy now...


A bit later and McKenzie is busy chewing on a duck that one of the nurses gave her before surgery.


This is the day after surgery once we'd been discharged from the hospital. We're in our hotel and obviously McKenzie is suffering the ill effects of the surgery...


And here is Molly. She took the opportunity to learn how to read while we were in Birmingham. Here she is enjoying the Very Hungry Caterpillar.


Shhhh...don't interrupt me...



She had quite the set-up going here. We were rocking like 8 pillows...



Ok, moving on to something entirely new. After we returned from Birmingham, we decided to start the girls on some solid foods. The very beginning is rice cereal. The girls have matching high chairs but look so darn tiny in them.

Lindsey dressed for the occasion. Something that could get dirty if necessary...


One for McKenzie...


We're not really sure we like this...


And one for Molly...


The girls have done pretty well with solids so far. We've added avocado, oatmeal cereal, bananas, and sweet potatoes. McKenzie still doesn't really care for solids but she's getting there. I'll post up a video of the process later...

Last event, Mother's Day 2009!

This was Lindsey's first Mother's Day. We spent the day at church and then with my family. Since we weren't able to get Easter pictures due to Molly's fun attitude, we decided to do some today.

Here's Lindsey with both girls.


And one where Molly isn't eating her wrist...


Individual shots with Molly first...


And now McKenzie...


And finally one with Molly and the best face ever...


Not sure if that's surprise, fear, shock, or what...but it's funny.

So, that's it for now. A bunch of pictures but that's what you've been asking for. We have our six month pediatrician visit in about a week. We'll get updated weights and measurements then and also see about getting some professional pictures taken.

One other fun thing was Lindsey's Mother's Day present. She got a new side-by-side stroller. It's from Baby Jogger and is called the City Mini Double. Anyone who wants to make a contribution towards this purchase is welcome to. It's an awesome stroller and it should last us for several years. I know Lindsey's thrilled to get away from the current Snap and Go bus she's driving.

So, hopefully you are all satisfied with the update. Til next time...
